    "Completely Satisfied"

    Sound:
    This guitar does not have the kind of projection that a high end classical guitar would have. The nature of cutaway acoustic-electric guitars contributes to this. Also, the guitar is constructed heavier than a premium classical--which have very thin dynamic but fragile bodies--would be. This is an advantage in terms of durability, but it takes from the soundboard's ability to vibrate freely. The thick glossy urethane finish is similarly more restrictive than a nitro cellulose or mat finish would be. Of course, you can't expect these things on a $300 guitar, and to be fair this guitar is designed to be pulled in. This isn't to say that the guitar doesn't sound good. It sounds as good as other acoustic electric classicals in the $700 range. It just doesn't sound like a traditional spanish guitar unplugged. This guitar really comes alive when plugged in. (I usually blend the signal from the pre-amp with a mic.)
    Feature:
    The solid spruce sound board should improve with time. The traditional two inch nut-width facilitates classical fingerstyle technique. The nut itself, however, is made of cheap plastic and tends to cause high tension strings to bind even if the nut slots are widened. (I'll soon replace this with a bone nut.) Again, you really can't expect to have a bone nut on a guitar in this price range. The saddle was a bit high, but this it's easy to sand it down be hand with a simple piece of 150 grit sand paper.
    Quality:
    This guitar is very well constructed. I seems as though it would stand up to the demands of the road a lot better than many more expensive classicals. The tuners work very well, and the guitar stays in tune.
    Value:
    For the money, this is one of the best acoustic/electric classicals on the market, period.
    The Wow Factor:
    This is a beautiful sexy guitar. No doubt about that.
    Overall:
    I'm very satisfied. I immediately replaced the strings with higher tension ones that move the soundboard better. I will replace both the nut and the saddle with bone as well. But these are things I'd do with any moderately priced guitar. When my playing improves enough to warrant it, I will buy a classical guitar that cost 10 times what this one does. However, I'll hold on to this one to take on the road. If this guitar were stolen I'd probably buy another one. The only thing I really don't care for is the plastic nut.
