I purchased this guitar based on the reviews I read. It's always risky to buy sight-unseen and I had never played a Kronbauer, but this was well worth the risk. Many of the comments I've read on guitar forums note how Kronbauer guitars are under-priced for the quality of workmanship and materials. I wholeheartedly agree! This guitar is a work of art. The attention to detail is amazing - the wood side markers, the inlay on the fingerboard, the edge binding, the inlay on the heel; all very tasteful and beautiful. But we're not reviewing artwork, so let me get to the tone. I'm not a trained musician but I know what sounds pleasing to my ears. This guitar is strong in the mids, crystal clear across the entire spectrum, with nice bass response but not boomy. Great note separation and sustain.The neck is a nice profile, similar to a Taylor neck but just a tad (technical term) thinner. This is the fourth guitar I've bought from Jon at Shoreline in the past year. He's always a pleasure to deal with and their service is the best!
