Just picked this guitar used at a local dealer. The fit and finish on this guitar is not the greatest, but overall its a good guitar for the price. This is a decent platform for a few upgrades in the future that would make it a really great guitar.

Update: Just had a luthier do a fret level/crown/polish on this guitar. He also put a satin finish on the neck and made sure the neck pocket was clean and tight...All I can say is wow! This guitar went from being a good guitar to a great guitar! If you can find one that feels right buy it, and have a luthier spend some time with it.
