This guitar has exceptional tone. I've owned numerous guitars over the years and this one is one of the finest I've ever owned -- or played. The attention to detail is superb. A Magnetron pickup in the neck provides wonderful detail and clarity with the right amount of warmth from the lower register. The regular Filtertron in the bridge gives great punch. Surprisingly, there is a wide range of tones you can get out of this guitar. I do mostly fingerstyle and I was floored with how well this guitar handles fingerpicking. The right amount/type of reverb, some slight delay, and a touch of stereo tremolo and this guitar rings out with a unique voice I have never heard in any other guitar. One might think that because it's a baritone that it is rather specialized and limiting. But there is much that you can do with this guitar. It also handles a capo very well, which provides the option of more conventional/standard tunings with a unique timbre. Really just a wonderful guitar; one of my all-time favorites!
