A beautifully open and balanced grand auditorium.
Well, let me begin by saying that it was not easy to put this guitar back in its case just now. I wanted to keep on playing, but so it goes. This one just feels so PERFECT; right shape, right neck profile, plenty of depth both literally and figuratively. The Engelmann top is full and complex, perfectly balanced by the rich, reddish Mahogany back and sides that emphasize the fundamental in just the right way!
