This is a guitar that you connect with. It is medium sized and has the three piece back. Has a rather thick, warm sound whether playing gently or firmly - good midrange. Each note is individual. I've had many high-end acoustics and this one is very special! Does everything well but using finger picks or fingers with no picks is where it is the best guitar I know of! If you play the Clapton/Unplugged type of songs, this is the best I know of for you.
