This is one of the best sounding acoustic guitars I have ever played. The body shape and size provide an additional amount of brightness to the already very rich and balanced Koa used to build this fine instrument. Keep in mind, this is REAL. LAYERED. KOA. Having a guitar with Koa on it usually skyrockets the price, but this guitar is insanely reasonably priced and sounds like a guitar at least twice this price. The proprietary electronics built into the guitar are nothing to scoff at. The transducers provide crystal clear sound and all the beautiful, warm resonance that comes from this guitar.
