I bought it for playing the Delta Blues and it mach perfect for that. 45mm nut width is quite good for fingerpicking. Playability is good and intonation is very sharp. Guitar sounds very authentic to old fashioned delta players like B.B.Broonzy, Mississippi John Hurt, Son House and others. Not to mention, this guitar is loud, louder than my jumbo Takamine. Could you imagine - so little and yells like an animal! Building quality is exellent, just one thing I didn?t understand, why to complete so nice instrument with cheap plastic bridge pins and tuners from totally another fairytale. Does not mach the style at all. Gear ratio 1:14 does not fit to steel strings. I changed these details not to spoil a original look of AP-66 which rip-off this guitar probably is. And the label ofcourse, it?s UGLY. Is there too hard to find a better paper? Wiped off with wet cloth by me! But generally it is a top qualty instrument and strongly recommend it!
Got this as an armchair strummer, just something to noodle on when watching TV. Seemed good value with the solid top and it really is.
The finish overall is pretty much flawless, it is understated, but looks a lot better than the site pictures, smooth frets, nice action after adjusting the truss rod and taking a bit off the saddle, this is more personal preference as it was perfectly playable as was. The tuners hold tune very well and the nut is cut properly, really no complaints.
Sound wise it is really a lot better than the price suggests, finger picking and bluesy style plucking is what this little gem excels at, but it doesn't sound awful if you can't be bothered to sit with your Dreadnought in the front room and want to do some strumming, boxy as expected, but projects quite well for it's size.
You really can't go wrong with this little beauty, and the 45 mm nut is a bonus for finger pickers.
