Build quality and aesthetics are two of its most attractive traits, as attested to by many reviewers. Many are happy with how the overall natural look of the guitar matches its familiar dreadnought acoustic tone

Positive customer reviews came from both beginners and experienced guitarists with the dominant theme being 'great guitar for the money' and the Fishman electronics were also cited many times.


There were no consistently reported negatives in customer reviews other than a small number of people who mentioned the action was a bit higher than they expected.


If you're looking for a student acoustic-electric, or something to use as a practice guitar, then the PF15ECE is a good option.
