I think that this might be a contender for best value instrument in the shop! Freshman are offering a lot of spec for the money here. Although it is laminate Ash wood all round, the acoustic sound is quite impressive. And including an active preamp with built in tuner and tone/volume controls, and a gigbag, it is quite the bundle!

Like some other brands, this model benefits from having an arched back, which tautens the laminate wood and quickens its response, which has the effect of increasing sustain and volume. So although a laminate you can really enjoy a full and loud sound, when required!

You have to forgive the odd small cosmetic mark, as with all Chinese factory made instruments at this price point. We will check each one and if we find anything major we will be in touch to discuss with you before we dispatch it!
