Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

A guitar that is both easy to play and a pleasure to look at, this Glen Burton creation combines the full-bodied resonance of basswood with a sexy flamed maple top.
Flame top with basswood back and sides. Catalpa neck and bridge. Great starter guitar with everything one needs for acoustic steel or amplified guitar playing. Comes with amplifier, set of strings, pick, digital clip on tuner and gig bag.
The digital clip-on tuner is easy to use and holds the tune very well, which is something the more advanced players will truly appreciate.
As it has a large body at 41”, the large sound hole is good for performances as it has quite a far projection. The Catalpa neck, contributes to its long sustain as this wood has resonant tonal qualities. The tonal quality is clear in all ranges which makes it better suited for flat picking and strumming. This is particularly suited to country music.
