    Looking at that Riversong guitar bridge shape the guitar is not happy with the design of the guitar...and me neither....

How does it play? It's hard to know. So I'm curious.
    So, Mr. Curious, the main show floor at a trade show with thousands of exhibitors is no place to try out an'll need to find someone who owns one, or someone who has one in stock to check it out.

    I've watched a lot of videos on these. They seem ok but I would prefer Taylor T5. Basically the same thing. I just don't like the way these look. JMO!

    I've never played either. I plan to try out the Fender when my GC gets it. NStuff has it, I may drive up there to see how it plays.

    But in this comparison video, I have to say, I like the Fender's sound better.

    First guitar I ever bought new from a shop (circa 1989 or so) was a Kramer Ferrington. It was a guitar I can only describe as the worst of both worlds. :)

    Given makers have had 30 years to work on it, I imagine they’ve worked out a few kinks.
