My S Series guitar and I go back many years. I have played many guitars, but it is very seldom I find a guitar which I felt a very special connection with from the first time I touched it. This S Series is one of the few. Since then I have been consulting them to further improve this guitar and they have produced many prototypes to perfect this series. They finally came up with the S-135 model and I am happy to give it my seal of approval with confidence. I can guarantee this guitar is just as good, or even better, than many of the high end guitars made in America or Europe.
