I think we have only one of these in Singapore - it's sitting in the window of the dealership and looks like a Rembrandt amongst a stack of comic books :D

I asked the price and they said it wasn't for sale, not at the moment anyway. I guess they want to keep it as a display piece for now - at least that way more people will get to appreciate this beautiful guitar!

Gotta admit I thought the audio was terrible.

In person this guitar is sonically stunning !!!

You're not listening on your laptop speakers are you? :wink:

One of the things that I don't like about most online reviews of electro-acoustic guitars is that they are not clear about how they are capturing the audio. Are we hearing just the pickup, a microphone or a combination of the two? And what irritates me even more is when they plug the guitar into an amp and then put a microphone right in front of the amp - the truth is that nobody listens to an amp with their ear 1" from the speaker cone, and putting the mic further away will get a much truer picture of what the whole combination sounds like.

Anyway, it's good that the review was universally positive!
