The wood on this guitar is simply beautiful, a real stunner. The open pore finish is amazing and feels great. The neck is very comfortable and the action is unbelievably low. The Ovangkol fretboard has a fantastic feel to it and actually looks like an ebony fretboard. It's really gorgeous. The grand concert body is very comfortable to hold and play (not too thick). The sound this guitar produces is clear and focused. I've had guitars three times the price that didn't sound or play as well as this one. This guitar is a steal at its current price.
