Unbelievable quality for the price
AlcalaBob, 30.05.2019
This is a very sweet jazz guitar and at the price, it's unbeatable. I've played a lot of guitars mostly for jazz but this deep-bodied archtop really stands out. Even unamplified is has real quality tone with a remarkable balance across the mid-range. Amplified it keeps its clear character, no muddy spots.

The two humbucker pickups do their job very well with hardly any noise at all, nice crisp sounds across the full range of tones. The neck pickup gives lovely Joe Pass type sounds and the guitar records really well straight through a USB interface into a DAW. Through a valve amp, it sounds full-throated and retains a nice acoustic quality too. The sustain is excellent even without amplification which points to the quality of the soundboard. Though I don't play the style, the range of sound would be fine for country, blues, even manouche styles. It's very versatile.

It's very well-made, comfortable to play and grows on you very quickly. You won't want to put it down so be warned. I'm struggling to find anything critical to say. The construction quality is excellent as was even the initial setup. I've made absolutely minimal changes for personal preference but they weren't really necessary. Nope, can't think of anything negative about this guitar. It does everything I could want and does it well. Highly recommended. And at this price???
