    Not a fan of the Abaco, but the figuring is absolutely stunning. Enjoy!

    Sounds great plugged in too. I was expecting for the pickup to sound a little quacky but it doesn't. Powerful sound, but you can play some fingerstyle with it. The quilt is 3 dimensional. Amazing for a veneer. The black binding around the body and the abalone inlays are tastefully done.

    Thats no veneer, if you look in the sound hole, you will see the back side of the quilting.

    Yeah it's a veneer. They couldn't make it solid at that price. The first round of SE Angelus in the early 2010's had solid backs.
