This guitar is one I either love or have issues with. The neck needs constant tweaking. Could just be where I live. When it's set up well, it's a really really good player. I prefer a lower action and this one plays well, though a little too low to use slide well. I still need to have the nut adjusted, as it is a little high, creating some intonation issues. I just haven't had the time.
I've recorded with it several times, and it is well balanced and ringing. It is such a perfect second guitar when recording multiple acoustic tracks. In a live situation, it mics well. I have tried a contact mic with it but that doesn't work as well. Wish it had a pickup, but I knew it didn't when I bought it.
The finish is beautiful and only found a couple minor flaws where the neck attaches, but no one but me will see it.
For a playable, low end resonator, this does just fine.

I like the guitar except the bridge cracked and nut broke off. A few extra pieces would have been nice.

Bought one of these about 4 years ago. I haven't been able to put it down, it is my go-to instrument. My only regret is that I can't find a pick up that will fit so I could dispense with a microphone when performing. Perfect action and play ability, I never get tired playing this baby. Love it
