Yes, a nice guitar with a more vintage tone, warm & mid-rangey. can be a bit stiff, depending on the quality and thinness of the top, but the good ones a really nice.

What a great guitar. I looked them up second hand on Reverb and it looks like they sell for $1000- $1200usd. It is a lot of guitar for that sort of money. I can't stop playing the intro to Mr Tambourine man!

Pretty cool channel based around an original Selmer if you're into that. American acoustic guitars sound way too bassy and scooped to me now that I'm used to the mids of a Selmer style.

Didn't see the SE for a moment. Heart skipped a beat, hyperventilated, conscience and opportunism squared off for a death battle. :lol:
