I can't even go into details about all the great things about this guitar. It projects sound like it's a vintage guitar with all the mojo. The finish has a nice satin feel to it and only con is that it is poly and not nitro but the poly is super thin so it breathes well. The craftsmanship ship is outstanding no ruff edges. The inside of the guitar looks outstanding as well. For a small concert size guitar it is super loud it has more bass in the sound than you would think. I am super happy with the case it comes with as well it's very sturdy. Guild USA is so under rated they build best friends not just guitars. It truly feels like a boutique instrument.
