Excellent guitar

JJ5191, 29.07.2018
I've been playing this guitar at home for a month, and so far I've been quite satisfied with it.

The neck is just beautiful and you can't feel any roughness in it. The tuners have a nice dark chrome finish that contrast very well with the color of the wood. About the body, I wasn't expecting it to be that rough on the back, which is not a bad thing though.

Regarding the electronics, I thought there was something wrong with it at first, as no sound would come out from the output jack and the tuner wouldn't even register a note. I tried getting a new battery but it didn't solve the problem. I cranked up the volume knob and on my DAW I could see very faint signal, mostly overwhelmed by the noise. It turned out that the pickup was somewhat loose and thus no signal could ever come out. I tried moving it a bit, and finally the problem was solved (?). I reckon this could've happened during shipping, however that is mainly what I'd complain about the guitar.

In terms of sound, the guitar has beautiful clean sound, and really resonates well. The sound from the pickup is also nice and clear. The three-band EQ can really help shaping the sound of the guitar, but it can be a bit too responsive. I personally like it all at 0, except for a tiny cut of treble, because sometimes the sound can be too bright for me. The EQ is also very helpful to reduce the noise of the plectrum, as it can be very notorious and even overwhelming.

I almost forgot about the tuner. I found its response time a bit slow, that is, it takes a bit long to tell you the pitch after plucking a string. However that's not a big deal in my opinion. I don't know how accurate it is, but I think it's perfect if you just want a quick tweak during a show. When recording I guess you could rely on more accurate tuners.

Overall, I really liked this guitar, and most importantly, it has an amazing sound. I would totally recommend
