I purchased this guitar very recently from former Moollon Custom Shop master luthier CK Ji. He is well-known in Asia and around the world for his line of custom hand-crafted guitars. As to the credibility of the luthier, I have heard that Eric Clapton once bought one of CK Ji's custom handcrafted guitars in the past.
The guitar does not have a single chip, blemish, or scratch. Very well maintained and basically in new condition.
Additionally, I am the ONLY PREVIOUS OWNER of this guitar.
In terms of sound, the guitar sounds very rich and resonant. I would say that the highs are bright and lively while the mids and lows are dark and mellow. It could be just me, but I'd also say that the guitar is marginally louder than expected, possible because of the width of the guitar. This makes for an extremely enjoyable performance in small to mid-sized rooms, even without an amplifier or microphone.
If you are interested in a premium guitar that breaks away from the Martin/Taylor trend, please continue reading for further details.
