She's channeling Elizabeth Cotten...

There's a 10% Off coupon code over to Amazon for the Donner making this guitar a $449.99 ax. Apply any reward points you may have and buying this guitar is almost a no-brainer. I'll wait, however, until someone from AGF orders one to get a review. The molded-in bridge-saddle thing causes me concern. According to the NAMM Show video, there's also an acoustic-electric model coming out soon.

It almost looks like the frets are glued on the fingerboard:

Thatís not a photograph. Itís a rather poor graphic image.

Ever seen strings like that?
