Though sustainful, the main impression is a taut, even vaguely tight, feel and delivery, but if you dig in the guitar responds with a decent attack and projection. The tone is brightish, but well integrated.
The Classic 4 is capable of plenty of powered warmth, but it’s inhibited here by a very dominant low E output, which necessitates the bass slider being trimmed back in compensation.
Treble and brilliance need fairly modest settings to avoid the high-end becoming too papery, but cure that under-saddle imbalance and the system would become predictably surefooted.
Pros: Fingerstyle-dedicated neck, if you cope with the span.
Cons: Poor under-saddle output balance.
Verdict: The clear choice for purist fingerpickers.
