Oh, it's definitely a keeper.  I'm really surprised at the resonance of the body.  You can easily practice with this guitar without an amp.

And it's so light that if it didn't have the battery in it, I'd have to tie it down.  [8D]

Great news John, glad it finally turned up.  I love mine and play it all the time.  I also can't believe how light they are, it makes my Classic seem really heavy.

Sounds great with the light weight and all. Custom knobs should really set it off nicely! [:D]

Hey John, What kind of acoustic amp is that? It looks fairly light also. [?] OOPS! Is that just a speaker cab? [:I][:o)]

It's a Tech 21 Bronzewood 60.  It weighs 38 lbs, so it's not really light.  I think it is the best acoustic amp i've ever played.  Unlike many acoustic amp that use a 6 or 8 inch speaker, this one uses a 12.  I've also been through a Mama Bear and a Zoom A2 and neither one sounds as good as this amp by itself using its SansAmp circuitry.  I wish they still made the matching Power Engine 60T.

It's still 17 1/2 lbs. lighter than my Loudbox Pro 100. I'm just glad that now it's here it won't be leaving my music room. [:D]
