Long story, short as I can make it.
In a discussion with a friend about buying a 5 year old a guitar. I suggested a Little Martin or Baby Taylor. Mother says, "that's too expensive." I say, "You can afford it."
But, I search a little for travel guitars and find this. By the time I advise the Mother, she has already bought the Martin.
I look at some videos and it peaks my interest so I cash in some points, beg for additional discount and order one up for myself.
This little guitar doesn't sound like much pure acoustic, it's laminated wood top back and sides. But, .......... it is well made, nicely finished, good neck, great intonation, and sounds absolutely great through a S1 Pro, without the preset.
I don't know how many times on a road trip I have wished for a guitar I could comfortably hold and play while in a passenger seat. I have been playing it for a week now, trying my best to play some tone into it. The physical size takes some getting used to but I can handle it with or without a strap. And, did I say that it sounds really good through the S1 Pro?
So now I've been daydreaming about a S1 Pro Jr. Take three of the twiddlers from the Compact and a 4 1/2 inch speaker, put it in a cabinet half the size of the S1, with the same battery, mixer, and sound. I could throw it all on the back of a scooter and play anywhere.
