Unbeatable value

By Blake Gardiner

from Burlingame, California

I'm generally a big acoustic player. Let me start out saying that this does not replicate the same sound a traditional acoustic has, nor can you feel the entire body ringing and vibrating when you play in the same way either. HOWEVER, this is an incredible guitar. The Montage may not be the best acoustic or best electric, but it can most certainly hold its own on both fronts and I love the 'chorus' feature (great for playing Stairway or Hotel Califonia!!). Even unplugged, this guitar still sounds impressive, I can't put it down. It's also very easy to play. This is a great value, several guitars for the price of one. My advice is to experiment with various strings untill you find what works for you and sounds best. I'm still working on finding the right set myself.
