A guitar, but strongly type-dependent

11.02.2016
I bought this guitar because of consistently good reviews and good value for money.
The guitar is consistently well processed and makes a really nice impression.
The sound is (at least in my ears) needs to get used to, strong ups and downs, but I personally missed something the mids.
The pickup works perfectly, the built-in Pre-amp can also adjust the mids. A really good pickup.
For my fingers, however, the fingerboard was too thin and by the really not bad but not suitable for me sound, I will unfortunately send the guitar back. However, I am firmly convinced that the other will love this instrument, every person has different tastes and impressions.

Simply excellent

BMJ, 03.09.2014
I was not going to expect a "relatively cheap" guitar to have such versatility. Beginning with the sound theme, from the first time you catch it, it is easy to see that its solid cedar top will give you a great resonance in both open and closed spaces. Its pickup, the TP-4TD, as in the vast majority of the "G" series is more than acceptable (without protruding but with a quite remarkable sound). In regard to physical characteristics. It had been a long time behind a satin guitar and the truth is that I was not disappointed at all, but quite the opposite. One of the places where it is most noticeable in relation to the "brilliants" is in the mast. The satin finish makes it possible to move your hand up and down in a very comfortable and simple way.
In short, it is a rather sloppy guitar with a great sound and a price that is more than affordable. Great purchase.
