I bought this guitar for my wife, who played some years ago, and now that our daughter is playing, she wants to pick it up again. She is relatively small, so we were looking for a slim profile neck, and sized between parlor and 000. We tried out many brands and models before settling on this one, which is perfect for her. My one "complaint" is that this model (natural finish, no cutaway, no electronics) is fairly hard to find. Normally, I would not consider it ethical to shop the store demonstrators and then buy online. However, in this case, I did so because none of the stores carried this particular model in their in-store inventory. Sam Ash had it on our front porch in just a couple of days, and at a very competitive price. We are very satisfied customers.
