Nice guitar, very classy. I love the little rosette extension in the soundhole.

Agreed. Excessive and tacky. The colours of the eagle are terrible. I mean it works sometimes for a rosette, but only when it's a small thing, not a big obtrustive thing with a brown colour. It's like somebody got a sticker out of a magazine and stuck it on...

I like simplicity. Alvarez has that 12th fret diagional marker and that's it. At least this one looks tasteful and not over done. That martin 100 series was disgusting.

it's impressive, but goes along the lines of the martin from awhile back, it really doesn't do anything for me. i'm not a collector, i'm a player, and that looks like a collector's guitar. just my opinion.
