I bought mine in 2010. 1st year in college, everyone had something to say about this guitar. No one expected it to sound that well but it actually performs really well for a relative inexpensive guitar. Its has "solid spurce wood top", a feature of mostly expensive guitars. The finish is in "Natural tone", meaning it does not have a polish coating on the surface of the wood, neither does it have a "white seal" around the edges. Gives it its own distinct look but when its new the i felt the wood was a bit soft and it ended up having a few dents on the edges. As it aged I felt it hardened up and the tone have become more warmer as well. Its a very clean and good-looking guitar. In the hands of people who have more experience it sounds even better I'm use to. Needs constant cleaning but I think that our duty.
Guitar sound is great but very sensitive To weather.Required excess attattention.
