The only difference with mine, which is one of the first in the series, is the preamp.
Mine is really bad when I plugged into my marshall acoustic AS50D I have poussser volume and suddenly it crachotte, it's ugly.
I hope that the new preamp is better quality.

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice.
The shape is very pretty, it's a box with a jumbo cutaway quite aesthetic.
The right arm can rest comfortably on the body and the cutaway allows to expect more With easy the last string.
In terms of price / quality, the sound is really good.
In fact fortunately this electro-acoustic guitar has a real case (and not a semi-hollow) because for my part I do not use that sound. The sound does not carry as much as a fully acoustic guitar, but if you want a little voice is not so bad.

SOUNDS

Since it is my first guitar, I did not really start style music.
And this guitar is perfect when you do not know where to go at first.
But it should gobalement more for blues / rock.
The highs are crystalline and have a serious warm color.

I note that 7 because the electronic function is difficult to use with the preamp I have. This can be changed with the new preamp mounted on the latest models.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for my 18th birthday, I was born in 1988 (do the math usage time it changes every year ;))
I have not tried many model before: an old Ibanez acoustic my father but excellent sound, a Takamine TF341DLX (the sublime, also belonging to my father) and two Ovation I've forgotten references.
I love this guitar, it is a rather unusual quality for its price.
The abalone rosette is very nice, no mark on the frets but a very small pearl design aesthetic. Even the mark on the head is pearly white.
And its course is very nice. My listeners (the friend (s), I'm an amateur) have often been surprised by its sound.

With experience I will ever be the same choice. I do not want anything to change the world, but it may be because the first instrument.
