    Beautiful looking guitar. Such a warm and rich sound, with or without amp/PA. Please be aware this is the newer model that comes with Fishmans Presys onboard and not esonic2. They have done away with the Shadow NanoFlex bridge pickup. (Please see corresponding photos.) We have no way of comparing the 2 systems therefore we can't comment on any differences there might be. It is an outstanding guitar, especially for the price. Would highly recommend.
