I bought this guitar as a practice guitar. It is way more than that. The Fishman pickup has a really true sound. The guitar acoustically is really warm. I am an admitted Taylor snob from way back when, but this guitar rivals the capabilities of my Taylors at a much friendlier price. Haven't played it out or for long periods yet to be sure it holds tuning, but I'll be doing that soon. Definitely 5 stars.
