Overall Comments

great sound and about 2/3 the weight of the Gold Tone. it is a pleasure to just pick up and play. I was adjusting the strap on the Gold Tone trying to get comfortable more then I was playing it. I just heard that Recording King stopped production of this model,( are they crazy ? ) so if you find one, buy it I like it more every time I play it
