My first archtop after years of Gibson solids, now I have got to a certain age where jazz is creeping into my playing.

I have nothing bad to say about this guitar. Looks fantastic, and visually it has real character - definitely not a Gibson clone, with its unmistakable art deco touches. Quality of finish is superb, and value wise it's great. With flatwound strings (another first for me), it's a very smooth playing experience. Very easy on the left hand - I can still bend 12s on here like I can 10s an my LP (though I might not necessarily want too).

I haven't tried it out in a live setting yet, where feedback control might be a challenge, but it's absolutely my go-to guitar for playing at home. Without any shadow of a doubt it's made me a better player, as it just demands to be played, and in a manner befitting it's dignity ;-)

I've marked it four stars out of five for features as it doesn't have many, but then again it doesn't need many - it's not like you'd want a Floyd rose or coil taps!

The only downside for me it's the case is too big to fit in my boot, but I guess that's my own fault for not getting a bigger car!
