I've tried them under both the Mid-MO and Big Muddy labels, and I'll agree with HHP on all points; IME they're very similar tonally to the Army-Navy "pancake" (AKA "frying-pan") Flatirons with a slightly brighter high end, much like a Celtic mando or a couple Folk-era Martin Style A's I've played. If you're into authentic, pre-1900 old-time (think parlor guitars and gut-string/skin-head banjos), folk, or Celtic music one of these would be an excellent choice; if you're after the bluegrass "chunk" save your bucks and go for a midrange Kentucky or lower-end all-solid Eastman...
