    Not sure where to post this since it covers everything pretty well. So far having fun with this. Did a hands on test before purchase so I bit the bullet. 659E213A-F4D6-4960-BC5A-8D7952054F7B.jpeg

    Oh! So... what do you think of it thus far? Like the tone, play, build quality? I haven't seen one in person yet.

    Ya, liking it. Build is really good and I really love the playability.

    As you get older and you play a few sets acoustic a night, it wears on you, that is why I looked at this in the first place.

    Still messing with tones. A few I like . Jury still out on the electric part, but think it will work out. Nice to open up possibilities.

    Yeah I'm really diggin' the tones I hear in the promo video, just trying to figure out what I'd do with it... if I bring another guitar home my wife is prob gonna crown me with it! LOL!! ;) I'm really liking the blue and natural colors too...

    EDIT: It looks comfy to play as well. How thick would you say the body is?

    Nize and congratulations!

    And it addresses that the action can be lower so you can actually play it all over the neck without using a cowboy capo!

    When you get a chance, throw a video of it up.

    Well first verdict in. Live playing the the acoustic setting sounded great. Phenomenal actually. Audience liked. I stuck to the j45 setting since I have one. The jury is still out on the electric guitar setting. Since I am direct in to pa that could be issue. The electric sounded like a cheap teisco with high plink. , but still working with eq. Maybe might try amp simulator. The comfy playing for older guys for hours is nice.
