UTILIZATION

We feel it's good wood and not very hard rubber.
Depending on what you do, the handle is more or less "easy": great for the finger picking, exellent for the rhythm by banging against for a jazzy solo is harder!
But since I'm scratching my refretter (jumbo frets over by Barillon in Aix en Pce), the handle is a thousand times easier enjoyable! So now it's (almost) on top.
The handle can accept the open-tuning in general (eg DADGAD), but I had trouble with an open CGCGCF on the accuracy of C major.

SOUNDS

Very typical folk guitar: rhythm, flat picking and finger picking.
the sound is very Western, with true color: great, but specialized. Execellent projection.

OVERALL OPINION

I have since 2000.
I négocicié when purchased (13000Frs) the installation of a sensor and a fishman preamp makes me many services live.
It was a good guitar, but now it's a great guitar as it has been sound with age (more color) and since refretage is (almost) a top use, or it even took the sound.
When I chose him among others of this price, my choice was determined by the agreement of G-plated quite simply: the natural compression had nothing to do with the other (Martin, Seagull , Takamine). Since I tried a 810, nothing more. As for the ratio Q / P: Taylor, it's too expensive. But I think I found a good model: I keep it!
