How do the Fishman pickups sound on it? Is it a convincing acoustic tone, or is it obvious that it's coming out of an electric guitar? The dual outputs and fishman pickups made that guitar really tempting.

It's not going to get an awesome Taylor or Martin sound, but it gets a pretty good sound. It's actually an awesome sound. blending it in with the electric pickups is cool if you're amp will let it sound good (PAs work!), because it gets a semi-acoustic sound. It's an awesome blending situation.

If you can't hear Him or keep thinking He's telling you the wrong things, chances are you are not listening to God. Don't forget to cast demons away from you. Because people don't spend much time talking about them anymore, doesn't mean they've disappeared from between the last days of the bible being written, and today. That's a dangerous and stupid notion.

I'm not good enough to play a 12 string but I had one of the guys at the guitar store play a Dean 12 string hollow body and was quit impressed. I may not play that well but I know a good sound when I hear it. I did buy my son a Dean performer for Christmas and for the money I think we got a very good guitar.
