For the past 20 years I have been playing a beginner's guitar. There is nothing wrong with a beginner's guitar and in fact it made me appreciate the everything about this guitar. The customer service at was top notch and even received a followup on my order. The guitar is everything I was hopping for. Out of the box things needed to settle for a couple days. It was either the humidity change or my excitement but the string buzzing eventually faded out. A beautiful guitar and comfortable to play. Oh the tone! I feel like I have been playing underwater all these years.
