Had a bit higher expectations, but maybe I am to blame.

28.02.2017
First off, let me just say that when this guitar was first delivered to me, it was not set up at all, in fact it was very hard to play. I actually ended up paying an additional 50 EUR to a local guitar service to have the guitar properly set up. The neck was bent, to a point that even I, a newbie on this matter, could see the curve that shouldn't be there, and as a result the action around the 12th fret was obscenely high. The intonation was also off and needed fixing.

Having solved all those issues, however, I must say I am now starting to really appreciate this guitar. The strings (I have 10s on) feel kinda thicker than what same-gauge strings feel on my other guitar (an Ashton), but that is something that I can easily get used to. Now that it is properly set up, the guitar sounds really good, except for some minor fret buzzing (yes, even now!) which, for me at least, doesn't really get in the way.

In terms of building quality and aesthetics, this guitar is B-E-A-utiful. It is a work of art. I always have it at a prominent place in my living room, and I just stare at it while passing by. It is truly gorgeous in its simplicity. However, it is neck-heavy, not because it has a particularly heavy neck but rather because it has a VERY lightweight body, lol. Nevertheless, it is something that should be taken into consideration.

All in all, despite going through an phase of "oh God was this purchase a mistake?" because of the initial bad-setup shock, now that everything has been taken into consideration rationally, this guitar is really starting to repay me, and I'm optimistic that things will look up from now on.

Bought as a spare but......

Raymond W., 25.02.2015
I own several guitars including Fenders, Gibsons etc and I bought this mainly as a guitar to have laying around the house so that I could just pick it up without the aggravation of going upstairs to get something else, also, because it was realtivley cheap it didn't matter if it got abused a bit in the process.

However, It's probably, value for money wise one of the best guitars I've ever bought. Superb set up with a really low action. Lovely plain wood finish which is what really attracted me to it in the first place.

The less than smooth finish on the body took me by suprise, it feels like real wood but that for me is a part of the attraction. Also very light but a lovely sound when played through an amp.

The finish is not perfect with some very slightly protruding frets as you make your way along the neck but by no means uncomfortable.

If you're looking for a good guitar with a nice tone and which is slightly different to the usual Strats and Les Pauls then I can recommend this to you. I never regret buying it.
