    Totally worth it.

    I only own one - 060R with Fishmans

    It’s a super nice guitar to play. Fretwork is the best of any of my guitars (Caparison, ESP included). The resonant and loud acoustic sound makes it really satisfying to play.

    Tuning stability is good but it’s not totally immune to weather. In the transition from winter to summer, I pick it up one day and the strings are basically lying on the fretboard. But a quick truss adjustment and it’s fine. It’s more stable than my Gibson guitars or single piece maple neck guitars, but I’d say no better than a good 5 piece with reinforcement.

    I definitely plan to own more in the future.
