Right, I'm not sure what you guys and gals will make of this, especially if you (like myself) prefer the natural beauty of an acoustic guitar. These are a good price though, if indeed they are your thing.

I'm really glad that they didn't paint the whole guitar though and it's just the top. Speaking of the top, it's a solid sitka spruce top. The back and sides aren't listed as solid, so we'd assume that's laminate wood. At this price point though, that's totally fine.

There's a video below for anyone that wants to have a quick listen / watch.
Again... It's probably going to be for the older generation and subsequently quite niche. For what this is spec wise, for a limited run... I kinda felt obliged to share it.

The Grateful Dead AF60GD “Sunshine” design features one of the coolest of all the Dead’s skeletons; the guitar player, sitting on a rock wearing a red, white and blue top hat. The original artwork was of course created by the wonderful Tim Truman and is used to form part of this guitar’s overall summer vibe and named with a nod to the second track on the album Dave's Picks Vol V, "Here Comes Sunshine"

This is a stunning guitar, and captures the spirit of Tim Truman’s many contributions to the band’s artwork.

Due to careful design and our MST1 bracing architecture, this great OM has a rich open tone with bags of response making it a really fun guitar to play. Other features include a flawless gloss top that beautifully showcases the artwork. In the fingerboard there is and 12th fret lightning bolt inlay and to complete the vibe, a Dancing Bear graphic on the back of the headstock.

It’s our honor to be commissioned once more to help create these exciting collectibles that marry iconic rock ‘n’ roll artwork to great musical instruments

Not heard one with my own ears, although there are a couple of vids around. One in the description. For this money I think you can't go wrong if you're up for the artwork.
The artwork is beautiful
Bought. Been wanting a decent acoustic for a while. I`m down with the artwork and Grateful Dead although I wish it was the red rose version in the video.
Cheers OP!
