Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreMoncton, New Brunswick
I tried this out a couple of days ago -- one of three I was interested in -- and it sounded terrible. Otherwise, the action and the fit and finish were both quite good, and it may have sounded much better plugged in. But for me an acoustic/electric has to sound good in both modes, and this one didn't. I bought something else later the same day.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreCourtenay, British Columbia
From the moment I unboxed this guitar I was hooked. playability on the rounded fatter neck wasn't an issue, action is great on it. Unplugged this guitar is throaty, like an archtop should be, but plugged in this guitar really shines. You get the warmth and richness of an acoustic guitar with the clarity of an electric. I've used a few pedals with it and another acoustic guitar that I own and the response from this guitar to pedals is great. Tucked under the f hole is volume and tone control which was a bit tricky to find. However, it may just be mine, but the pickup has issues with the post connections from day one and I had to send away to have it replaced. That aside this guitar is fantastic and a lot of fun to play.
