sing. It’s a beautiful thing. The preamp is
intuitively laid out and changing the battery
takes mere seconds.
I did have a chance to test this guitar in a
live performance. With my very rambunctious drummer and bassist, this guitar held
up extremely well. I was able to turn up
loud enough to keep up with them and
had absolutely no feedback issues at all
using a Bose L1 sound system. We were
in a medium-sized club with surprisingly
good acoustics, considering that two of
the walls were almost entirely windows.
The warmth really enriched the total sound
of the trio, but the guitar and bass never
competed for sonic real estate.
The under-$1000 acoustic price range is
getting seriously competitive, with more
guitars than ever ramping up the quality, playability, and tone to compete with
much more expensive instruments. The
C770T offers all that plus Fishman’s most
popular pickup and a really nice preamp,
making recommendation of the C770T in
this price range a no brainer.
you want a stage-ready, great
sounding, awesome playing $2000
guitar, but your budget will only
bear a fraction of that price..
you aren’t a fan of mahogany.
