The instrument is very lightweight and sounds really big with a lot of grain and richness in the mid low end.
The shape of the body gives really easy access to the upper register of the instrument.
I didn’t want any electronics on this instrument, I prefer bare wood and eventually use an external microphone to pick up the sound.
I normally use standard tuning but one full step down, so, low to high: EADGCFAD. The idea with this tuning is to have a guitar that is tuned like a regular six string guitar, but one octave lower, while reaching more or less the same high notes.
