Sound : 9
I play finger pick mostly. Very suitable for me
when used Fender Frontman 15G.
It is acoustic. Not noisy at all.
Rich and vibrant sounds. Somewhat sensual. Unususal for ex light strings.
Great action and fast nrck. Small waist good features for me.
Zager guitars recommends these strings but I like them a little heavier.
Action, Fit, & Finish : 9
Action is very low. Zager Guitar is a luthier. He set it up and customized the nut, saddle and frets for remarkably easy playing
top is solid spruce. cannot see any divisions or seams.
This guitar was subjected to above average crqftmansship. It was very clean and well polished
Reliability/Durability : 8
Only time will tell if it will stand road work. I use it in my studio.
Grover tuners (sealed) The name speakes for itself
Only one strap button. I would have preferred none
I play for my own enjoyment. I would put it in front of a crowd but only with frsh strings. The guitar structure is mechanically sound and well braced. It should hold up as long as you use it to make music, not war.
I gave it an 8 only because I would expect it to hold up but dont know factually that it will
Customer Support : 10
Emailed them twice. They were very polite and responsive
Overall Rating : 10
Started in 1965. I never asked about scale but as it turned out it is not an issue. Should have asaked about he string guage recommendation. These strings atr a little too light for me. It is probably part of their “String Science” modification they do.
I will definately buy another. I want the 80CE
I wanted to try the EZ Play system they incorporate. I really have enough guitars. Now I want more. No comparison was made to any except the Martin OM series. This is my first OM soo I wanted to keep my investment down. I would have bought it with onboard EQ and pickup.Nothing else to tell at this time. I just plain like playing it. I find it easier to fret than my D28.
