I needed a guitar that would fit in the back of the car, and I couldn't bring myself to buy some frumpy dreadnought. So here it is!

cool, I thought I seen them or a cheaper copy for 199 or 299 and wondered if the V shape had any effect of the acoustics?

It sounds pretty good...It definitely played better than the stratocoustic/telecoustic thingies at GC. The downside is its a weird center of gravity. It only has one strap button and you're supposed to use an acoustic strap. Most people put their own button on.

I'm happy with the choice...I travel every week, so I bring an electric, a bag of clothes and now this.

BTW....the finish on that guitar (your sig) is sooooooo nice.....very deep.



The guitarless thing is definitely an obsession. Sometimes I'll throw my Rickenbacker or Dot in the car and wish I'd brought a shredder. More than once I've gone on a trip without a guitar and bought one while on the road...Last trip I had to scour pawnshops looking for a case to fly it home with. So now it's escalated to bringing an electric and an acoustic!

It's a good thing you guys didn't see the new Imperial (http://www.musicyo.com/product_specs.asp?pf_id=1328) that was released today.....

Definitely a sickness :icon_eek:
