Sound Quality
Simply put: Phenomenal. The only ABG I've ever been able to feel. With a pick, there's a sharp treble attack, but unlike all other ABGs I've played, the sharp attack is not gained at the expense of bass. To the contrary, the treble bite rests on a warm cushion of soul-moving bass. Played with fingers only, it delivers a warm thump almost too good to be true. Will more than hold its own with several other acoustic instruments.

General Comments
If forced to hate something, it would be the size. It's too big to relax with on a couch (at least for very long). To play it in a relaxed position, my left arm tires quickly because, due to the body depth, the neck is positioned much further forward than an electric. HOWEVER, the size is a necessary trade off for the VOLUME!! If stolen, I'd go into mourning. From what I udnerstand, less than 1000 of these were made, so I'd probably play hell finding another.
