Played every 15-2500.00 guitar I could get my hands on ovr a 3 month period. Then I played every 5-800.00 guitar looking for the one that sounded and played closest to the higher end guitars I dug. This guitar was far and away the best, to me, at 599. inc hardshell case(larivee case). I bought it. My Takamine cedar top cut away became a rejected lover. Sold her off to a friend. Everywhere I play i get comments about the sound and appearance of this guitar. I play in subways and cafes and open mics where I have hosted and used as "house guitar". Have beat the hell out of her for 15 years and she still sounds and looks great. Only two set-ups in all that time. Great action. Have played with medium and light strings. Have told many sad faces she is no longer manufactured. I will replace her if she goes down with another of the same if I can find one in good enough condition. If not, the closest thing to it I can find.
