Rich, full, deep and bright. Loud. Like most sixes, it has great resonance and sustain. very rich, very full.
Sound Rating: 10
Set up well. Jason suggested heavier strings than I sent him and he was right. The action is quite low and needs a heavy bass string so as not to buzz.
Setup Rating: 9
Jason's finish work is impeckable. No flaws. Beautiful wood, stain and hardware. he made the bridge, tension hoop, shoes and tailpece and they are 1st. class. Inlay work was lovely. He is a master.
