  • Comments:

    These Michael Gee layered top guitars are designed and known to be strong, loud instruments. This particular one has a nearer 'normal' tone range than many and is therefore particularly pleasing. It has good balance with a strong treble and warm bass. Very popular with younger players seeking power and volume, this has a good balance between strength of sound and tonal palette. Sensibly-priced.
