Comments: I am very happy to once again have new Lakewoods arriving for Fall. We are huge fans here. The ingenuity and craftsmanship of these guitars is hard to beat, particularly for the price. The M-14 has been a go-to guitar for me for years. I have used mine extensively for live performance and studio work. I love the warmth and overall balance of this model. It requires no EQ whatsoever for studio use…just plug in and go. It also has the most headroom I have ever heard on a Cedar topped guitar. If you are after the Euro fingerstyle voice of a Lowden or Mcilroy, but can't deal with the price-point, this guitar will come ridiculously close for a fraction of the price!
