    Year & specific model: 2011 New Hartford F-30 Std (standard)
    Purchased new or used: New
    Price paid: about $1400

    Owners rate 1 (least appreciated) to 10 (most appreciated) in following categories with comments as desired:

    Build quality 10

    Fingerstyle 10
    Flatpick 9,8
    Strum 9,5
    Condition : New

    Favorite Strings (one selection only): Light it seems (haven't tried others though)

    Would you buy another if lost/sold: definitely yes, at approximately same price and condition (usually buy from what's available at an affordable piece for me...)
    Overall Assessment: Fantastic and just perfect for me.

    Most Appreciated Characteristic: balance/volume/playability ratio
    Least Appreciated: No onboard electronics (got to get some ! )
    Favorite F-30 Story/Moment: The time I realised how good it was (still on...)

    Other observations/comments: would have liked an OM-28, but it's not as powerful I think(too slim), and more expensive, (and mahogany does record better than rosewood it seems. Then not the slightest regret so far

    edit 05/31/2018 : I must have over-rated a bit this guitar, as I've had it for a short time then, and since I paid such a low price for my country that I got a lithe overwhelmed with enthusiasm...Take out between 0.1 or 0.2 (trebles) and 0.4 or 0.5 (?) out on every mark, as the guitar is not as good as some really outstanding very high-end guitars, such as those with Brazilian rosewood body, ivory bridges or fossilised mammoth ivory saddles and nuts, made by fancy luthiers or top-brands using AAAA grade woods and hide-glue maybe, and building each guitar individually or so on...Wouldn't be fair enough to them. Still the guitar remains my favourite so far, after more than 3 months' use and I do not play my other very excellent steel-strings guitars anymore for now...
