The guitar arrived one day after I ordered it. The finish is perfect, no flaws. It has been years since I have bought an acoustic guitar so I was apprehensive when ordering it on-line. No worries. The body of the guitar, at its largest distance, measures 16 inches. The thickness of the body varies, measuring 4 3/4 inches at the bridge end tapering down to 4 inches at the neck. Surprisingly, it was in tune when it arrived, but tuned a half step down from the normal standard tuning. It came loaded with D'Addario 12 strings. The nut is bone. I tuned it to standard tuning when I got it. The tuners are gold plated and feel firm when tuning with no play in the gears. I plugged it directly into my mixer and there were no problems with the volume or tone controls, which are mounted inside the sound hole on the front. The guitar sounds great plugged or unplugged with a lot of tone that would be expected from such a large guitar. It is also loud for an acoustic unplugged. It came with a hex wrench to adjust the truss rod. For me, the action is too high and it will need a set-up to bring the strings down for my preference. I can't play it for more the 20 minutes at a time before I have to let my fingers rest. Over all, the guitar is more than what I was expecting. I don't play at gigs anymore, but I wouldn't hesitate to play it live. It is impressive to me and I am glad I ordered it. It should be perfect after a pro set-up.
