I bought this guitar abut a year ago. I love it!!! I have had so many compliments on it's sound. I have played far more expensive guitars, even bought a few and returned them all. The H8SS has such a warm beautiful tone and sustain that seems to go on forever. I no longer play my other classical guitar unless I can't mic it and need to plug in.
