It’s a Fender acoustic. Black like all my basses.

Never had an acoustic before. Pretty quiet when played fingerstyle but loud enough with a pick. Sounds great through an amp. I like the built-in tuner too.

Action is set high. At first I thought something was wrong and tightened the truss rod a bit, but read that the strings are supposed to be like that to vibrate harder.

It’s fun to play but no fast runs on it. Nice just to pick it up and not have to plug in to make music!

Bought myself an Ibanez semi recently, haven't taken any pics. Nice guitar, always fancied a semi-acoustic, never got round to buying one. But I'm trying to learn jazz guitar properly now and that gave me the impetus to acquire something with a bit of the proper mojo.

^^ Smart. Roll the back pickup off, tone off on the front pickup, instant Pat Metheny!
