FedEx left this funky looking guit box on my porch today. I like the headstock, and the candy apple red finish sparkles. As far as sound, I should never have done a shootout between it and my Martin, but it is what it is. It sounds good for a knock-around acoustic. Oh, I could tear it down all day long for its lackings are vast. But I didn't buy it for recording. Justification, yes! Because the sound is idiosyncratic--I might write differently because of it. The build is solid; the neck feels great. It's easier on my fretting hand than most acoustics are. If it fell off a roof, I'd damn the luck, but it wouldn't hurt me like it would if the Martin got a ding.
