I have been in the market for a better acoustic for some time. I came close to buying an SE acoustic a couple different times but decided to hold out. Back in August I was able to trade for a Steve Fischer Angelus cutaway. It has been played so there are some dings. Last week I was finally able to get my hands on it to clean it up and put fresh strings on it. Work has been stupid busy and I just haven't had much free time and when I did it was all about sleep. It was killing me to have this acoustic in the house and not play it! I am thoroughly impressed with this guitar. The tone is well balanced and is very responsive to dynamics. It can get loud if needed but most importantly is how well it plays. Unbelievable I've got a few days off over Thanksgiving so I'm hoping to record with it. Just dying to hear it recorded. This COULD be the last acoustic guitar I'll ever need!!!
