Haha I am not trying to imply anything hyz.
Yes I have tried the guitar in person; the sound is definitely above estudio guitar,
I would think of it as a concert guitar and of course it not as loud as those cannon CF lattice thin top guitar which I have tried some but those guitars' sound really put me off...
(I have not tried double top before unfortunately)
Playability is definitely very easy to play as with all properly set-up Yamaha guitars that I have tried.
Some of the notes have really good harmonics (which I like)
As for projection, I can't really tell since I am the player.
Of course I still prefer the sound of my guitar but that's more of a subjective preference which everyone is entitled to.
It's not as loud as my own guitar though, however I think it might be due to that my guitar is set up higher.
It doesn't have that kind of ferocious attack that a Torres' fan have, which is more suited for Spanish pieces,
but Bach pieces sounds pretty good on it.
Considering the price that was paid, I would say it's quite value for money.
I think when a good player, like yourself, to evaluate guitars we have to consider which sort of pieces a guitar is suited for and the price range of the guitar.
That woulld be a more objective evaluation (oops but sound is pretty subjective ain't it?
If not why bother to have more than 1 guitar?
I believe every guitar has it's place.
Again my 2 cts of opinion.
