Better than you can even imagine. It's like Johnny Cash gave it to you himself, created it for your own needs. The guitar lays on your hands smoothly and presents you with a very warm and deep sound. It listens to your fingers carefully and even a slight touch could create a new vibration that touches your heart and souls of your audience. The Macassar wood is very unique and pleasant for playing. This guitar is a good choice for professionals, semi-professional, and for the present! If you choose that guitar, believe me, you will never be disappointed.
