The only guitar I've owned prior to this was a used epiphone dr100. Every aspect of this guitar is better than my old one. The sound, the action, the build quality. There were several models I was considering for my first decent guitar, including the FG830 and some of the higher teir Orangewood guitars. After trying out the competition in the sub $400 range I could have paid $300 for this and still been blown away by the quality.
super setup from factory. I didn't have to do anything. Just a very little tuninup. Thank you.
