    "Beautiful Sexy and fun to finger."

    Sound:
    This is a jumbo with a cut away. The best of both worlds: you can get to the high note range without losing any of the acoustic sound. Very well balanced with a low end that simply doesn't come from most cut away acoustic guitars. Gibson is known for having a deep bass sound on the "E"-string that stands out in a crowd. I'm really happy with the acoustic sound of this guitar. I have not used the pickup-as do not own an acoustic amp.
    Feature:
    cut away...pickup...grover tuners...all solid woods...nitro finish...EVERYTHING THAT MATTERS IN THE WORLD OF ACOUSTICS!
    Ease of Use:
    The action is where it should be for the best sound. Most people realize that by setting the strings closer to the fretboard you will obtain less strength to chord the guitar. This will result in faster picking and longer hours of continued playing without the hands getting tired. However,you lose natural acoustic volume by lowering the strings as well. I'm kind of a sound freak, and prefer a natural jumbo volume(action left at medium) If you use the pickup more often than not, you should set the action to your taste. I will rarely plug it in to an amp. I do have easy action on all my electrics.
    Quality:
    Great natural finish with the best of solid woods. The inlays, detail, and overall quality is superior. This is truly a guitar that has had some time spent on it at the factory. Quality seems to be the key.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I have had no experience with this issue. I tend to give an A+ until I have a bad experience.
    Value:
    You really get what you pay for today. If you take a close look at any guitar, you can usually see where the price comes from. Gibson guitars do have a huge list price; however, the percentage off the list is always larger whenever the purchase is made.
    The Wow Factor:
    She is a natural blond beauty. Don't let her looks scare you away. She is built to last and fun to handle.
    Overall:
    It's mine period. This guitar has a home.
