I'd been eyeing them for several years, thinking that the specs of a flamenco style guitar would be fun to play around with. What I've realized is that the sound isn't so different from the thinner body nylons I've been playing. In fact, it's a little fuller and I like the larger neck size. Sustain is greater than I expected, but there's not a muddy note I've found. The action was good out of the box, but I've lowered it a little at the body to even it out. The projection makes it perfect for the living room and get togethers. Very happy with my new toy.
