This is a great guitar for those wanting an easy playing classical style instrument with a great pickup system. Of course it sounds fine acoustically, but its major attribute is a very sophisticated and versatile pickup system that will allow you to tailor your amplified sound any way you wish.
Low action, stable tuning, quality build, and in good condition. A small ding on the top bout, plus few light marks & player wear here and there but nothing offensive. One owner, bought new in 2006 & well looked after.
Comes in its quality hard shell case in good condition.
