          I bought this guitar in April and haven't put it down yet ! I've been playing guitar for 45 years and have owned or played every brand of guitar there is . Price never was a factor when I wanted a new guitar in my arsonal . This 12 string plays every bit as good as a Taylor I once owned . The built-in tuner is fantastic ! Love playing again !
