Completely agree. I've never played another guitar with balance that comes even close.But the standout is my Lowden O25C in terms of sheer quality and nuance. Every note on every string at every fret is exactly the same volume if attacked consistently, with no dead spots whatsoever. It's the steel string equivalent of a high-end concert quality classical guitar. The more nuance and dynamics in your touch, the more it rewards (sadly I hardly merit this instrument but oh boy is it sweet to play when I'm well-warmed up and haven't been neglecting my playing time).
