Lovely model from Kala - easily the most popular acoustic model in the range now comes with a cutaway and a pickup. The solid aged cedar top makes for a beautiful, luscious rounded sound. Features also include a very nice Padauk binding to the body, which sets off the cedar and acacia beautifully.
This is a true all rounder as far as sound goes - picking sounds full and luscious with plenty of sustain, and strumming sounds very convincing as well, with lots of headroom so you can vary the attack from a little tickle to a massive overhead haymaker without having to back off. At all times the instrument responds with great clarity.
And the slotted headstock is just plain sexy. Plug it in or just appreciate being abel to find your way up the neck to the higher frets. Kala knew they were on to a winner with this one!
