UPDATE: It must have been because it was delivered in cold weather, but now this guitar handles even hard strumming. There's nothing it can't do - great guitar. UPDATE#2:almost a year later this thing is still awesome - sounds great, stays in tune forever.
I own a Recording King ROS-06, which I got on Amazon for $275, including shipping. I've had that guitar for two months now, whereas this guitar I have had for just over a week. The 06 I bought for solo acoustic gigs, and it is fitted with a Fishman under-saddle pickup, preamped with a Fishman Aura Spectrum (both, BTW, highly, highly recommended). It plays like a dream and sounds fantastic. Also a great bang-for-the-buck guitar, and a fine instrument at any price.
The ROS-06 is already beginning to open up, sound-wise, and I can only expect its sound to get fuller, warmer, and more complex as time goes by. The same, I believe, holds true for this guitar, the ROS-16. It sounds like a great guitar that isn't broken in yet.
If you're on a limited budget and want a great OOO 12-fret guitar, this guitar is a great choice. In a way, I'd rather have this guitar than a sub-2 grand Martin. It's just such a great value. If my financial resources improve considerably over the next few years, then I will go for a Collings, Santa Cruz, or other high-end guitar; but till then, this guitar is truly a blessing and a fine value. You will not for a moment, in my opinion, feel like you're settling for an economy guitar.

This a great guitar...for the money (yes, it's low end), for the sound (ringing clarity), for playability (superb), for the look (time honored Martin herringbone appeal). Read morePublished on August 29, 2011 by Mavydoodle
I bought this a month ago and am Loving it. This was my first slot-head. I found the guitar setup nicely. I found a couple drops of glue on the top. Read morePublished on August 11, 2011 by Meathooks
