The guitar maker is a chap called Burrell, from West Virginia. I think he built about 150 of these guitars before he retired. Mine is #112. he made some jazz guitars like this also.
I learned a lot from this guitar. It lived at my house for several weeks.
It is, by far the most comfortable and natural acoustic guitar to play. Ergonomically brilliant.
Tonally, it's snappy; sharp attack, fast decay. Reminds me of an old Kalamazoo.
I personally favour acoustics that sound like grand pianos. After a couple of extended sessions, I left it in it's case.
But I handed it to a mate who played it for hours, entranced. Declared it the best acoustic he had ever touched.
There's no definitive answers; each to his own.
That said, pulling this out in front of your mates is a priceless mindfuck!
