This is by far the best solid body electric nylon guitar of its type (les paul influenced) and at that price. I have used this guitar, often under different brand names for more than a decade. Often, this guitar brings Godin Guitars to peoples mind, thought of by some as a Godin copy when in fact, it is actually inspired by the Guild Paloma SC3. A guitar famously used and endorsed by Sting when playing his song Fragile and by his guitarist Dominic Miller on other songs like Shape of my heart or Fields of gold. It is the closest and next best thing since the Guild Paloma, probably inspired by the earlier Gibson Chet Attkins. If you know what you're getting when getting this guitar then in my opinion, this guitar is a no brainer, especially at this price! Any minor things that might be detected, like slightly high action or other setup issues (which wasn't the case with my purchase) is perfectly normal for most instruments at this price range and often even more pricey ones too. I also think that the recent alteration with a composite black fingerboard, which looks like ebony, is even better than the original rosewood variation though the bridge would probably look alright as rosewood. I have refinished this purchase in a wine red to mimic Dominic's one and will be certainly purchasing another natural and black model as well for the complete set.
