For people who play tunes that require a lot of finger picking, as opposed to strumming, this is just a godsend. Usually you don't see too many classical guitars with a cutaway and a pickup, which is why this model is so useful. One flaw would be that, as its a classical guitar, the string winding at the body is something you'll have to learn, and do properly. Not having a tight knot can get your string tension pretty messed up. Apart from that though, it hasn't offered me any problems.
