I'm one of those musicians who tends to pick up a guitar after a few drinks, who never practices, and can only play about six songs. When it was time to upgrade my old cheap guitar, this Fender caught my eye. It has a lovely feel when held, is not too small or too big. The sound is reminiscent of a blues guitar and it's lovely to look at. It could easily be mistaken for costing a lot more. I love it!
