The Road Dog is King! The light weight with the heavy weight title belt. This guitar is almost best described as a micro-jumbo. The sound is huge and loud. It carries a sensitive woody attack for fingerstyle or melody playing, yet has plenty of headroom to dig in with a very aggressive picking attack. I went through several variants on my standard flattop patterns to arrive at what I thought really allows a guitar of this size to maximize its potential. The goal really was to rethink what was possible out of a travel sized guitar, and I am floored at how great this turned out.
