I am in a hotel right now, and don't have wire snips, so I can't change the strings... want to give it a good cleaning anyway.

But, even with the semi-rusted old strings on it it sounds great. Nice and bass-ey... the notes ring out longer than my other guitars. So far, I am over the moon about it.

I scored an awesome deal on it. There is a minor dent in the binding that doesn't go through to the actual binding - it is only in the lacquer - easily fixed should I choose to. It was a great deal to begin with... but on top of that the cashier (Guitar Center) made a mistake and took an extra 10% off. Other than that... it is near mint.

You never know...if he or his manager is reading this... I am sorry for you guys - I hope you don't get in trouble and very appreciative that you just dealt with the mistake rather than making it a big deal. I will be back in the future to make more purchases there for sure - actually, tomorrow I am going to pick up some drum stuff for a buddy of mine.

Looks cool - I like the sharp lines on the cutaway.

What a sweetheart of a guitar lue, and a great deal too. :D So pretty with binding and I go nuts for the abalone rosette.

I like the specs, thanks for posting. I've played the smartwoods here, but I like your spruce with mahagony combination.

They're excellent guitars IMO, as you have found out and you are excited about. Cool, I love it when someone's happy! 8)
