I ordered one of these. I have a couple Xaviere electrics that are really good guitars. I ordered an acoustic electric with cedar top and walnut back and sides. It has a piezo and an internal mic. My only concern is that one guitar O ordered from them for my grandson started out nice but over the course of a year the neck developed a slight twist.

Here's how we make a proper link

Just unboxed my Xaviere acoustic. First impression is "wow". Beautiful wood grain. It is a solid cedar top and solid black walnut back and sides. Sounds very nice to me. Going out to meet the wife for dinner. I'll see how it sounds and looks after I get back.

Cool. If it’s a good one, all it may need is some attention to the fretwork and a setup.

So far it is set up fairly well. I'm letting it settle for a couple days and then will adjust the truss rod if need be. It has pretty good action out of the box. The finish and frets are really nice. At first look it does need the truss rod tightened just a smidge but it is pretty good right now. It is loud when played with a little hard strumming and the top and sides project nicely. Very sweet sounding when played softer. I'm used to playing my parlor sized Koa Takamine. The lower notes are there but not as prominent as a Martin. It kind of sounds similar to some Taylors I have played. A friend has a Taylor with a Spruce top and bubinga back and sides and this guitar sounds completely different to me.

I really love the grain of the black walnut back and sides of this guitar. The fretboard is Cabali and mine is not as dark as the one in the pictures on the webpage. So far I gotta give this guitar an A+.

I really like the sound of this guitar and the only adjustment it needs is the bridge height. It has a compensated bridge and I'm going to order one from Stew-Mac and bring down the string height.

That stock saddle is bone. I would not order a new one--just modify the one that's on there.
