It is very resonant and bassey. Nice n' loud. Of course, with no finish you have to be very careful about scratches, but I think it allows a truer sound. There is no pick guard either, but it is really sharp looking.
These pics aren't mine, but this is what it looks like.
Sorry man I just saw your post. That's a beaut! It sounds loud because the strings are threaded through the end of the bridge instead of pinned down from inside the guitar and threaded through the top. From what I understand this makes the guitar louder.
Here in this graveyard it's still No Man's Land
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man
And a whole generation who were butchered and damned.
