    Picked this up on Facebook a couple of hours ago. Not bad at all although the action is pretty high but I’m one of those sissy electric players that can’t handle acoustic guitars anyway LOL. Needs a good clean and probably a new set of strings and I don’t think this one will be around very long just because I’m not much of an acoustic guy.The Fishman electronics sound really good though I must say.

    Interesting inlay on the 12th fret....I've seen diamond ones that stay fit in between the frets and others that have an F with a filigree on either side, but none with a diamond that encroaches the 11th and 13th frets.... It have a year or anything on it? They did a marriage of the T-Buckett and the Sonoran at one point...but I don't recognize that inlay from those either...

    I found a few too..same everything except that inlay. I did find that inlay on the T-Biuckett/Sonora hybrid..but it had a completely different headstock.

    I finally did find one with the same headstock and inlay for sale on reverb... odd that those were the only two with that particular inlay...thought there must be a story behind it. But maybe not...

    Finally got to spend a little time with it yesterday and today. The action was far too high for my liking so I flattened out the neck a little bit with the truss rod and then I took a full eighth of an inch off the bottom of the saddle. I also polished the frets and oiled the fretboard and I’ll tell you it’s s an entirely different guitar. I don’t have an acoustic amplifier so playing through my amp the GBand E strings are fairly quiet unless I crank the volume and then the feedback starts to howl but it really feels quite nice at this point.
