What a fun guitar. Bought this to primarily jam / fool around, by myself (and/or with small groups).. not to gig.. So the lack of electronics didn't bother me (vs. the Deluxe model). Personally, I like the styling of the non-Deluxe model better, with the F-Holes. Guitar is heavy, but not by fault.. by design. Sounds great for a sub-$400 guitar. Feels really solid, stays in tune. Tons of fun to play! Love it.
