Just ordered one of these from John and I must say I was unbelievably surprised. I already own a 414ce limited and a 514ce and I just needed a 12 string to add to the mix when I lead worship. For a budget priced guitar, this thing is awesome. Set up perfect right out of the box, Excellent intonation all the way up the neck, full 12 string sound. The Expression System gives it a seamless connection to the audio mix with a full, clean and uncolored tone. Came in the mail on Saturday and the next morning I was playing it while leading worship. It just added so much fullness and sound. If you need a 12 string and either don't want to or can't afford the price of a solid wood model, this one is the go to guitar. If you need a top quality yet extremely affordable 12 string, this is it.
