Amazing sound, and completely surprising for a guitar of this price range. Like I said in the title, actually elicited an emotional response from the people that were listening to me play (which is rare). Favorite song to play on a 12 is Pink Floyd's "Wish you were here." Had a couple of misty eyes at the barbecue :D Whether you're a novice or you're well seasoned, this guitar will make you happy. The tuner is a must, and compared to my other chromatic tuner, works very well. If you're on the fence on getting this Fender, just push the button. You won't be disappointed.
