Great craftsmanship and set-up straight out of the box! I had very little work to do to fine tune the guitar to my preferences. The built in tuner and electronics work flawlessly. Beautiful Koa wood and glossy finish, plus Koa is well known to be a great tonewood! This is a very unique instrument. I use it for songs I would usually play on a 12-string, but the "missing" treble strings on E6 and A5 give a whole new sound to my traditional arrangements.
