I just love it. I have the cedar. I use it as a "working guitar" but it is such a pleasure to play. I installed a Kremona bridge pickup which does nicely.
When I play in a "performance" situation I mic up the Purnell. She is a spruce with a huge palate.
However, I would be comfortable with the C12 in this sort of situation as well. While it is warmer than the spruce, I really like its sound.
