I no longer insist on pluses that are obvious. It's one of the best acoustic guitars I've played in years. It sounds impeccable either connected or unplugged, it doesn't lose the tuning in any way and I "pulled" the strings seriously.
But I would like to pass on a few things that bothered me.
- it's made in China, not Indonesia as someone used to say here, it is not specified on the site, but it is very well finished, no frets buzz, no sharp edges, impeccable.
- the marks(inlays) on the fret-board(3, 5, 7, 12 ..) are very small, you can hardly see them, it's stupid that they made them so small.
- I expected the built-in tuner to be the bigger version, it came with the small version, this is not specified on the site and there is no picture of it.
- the neck and the tongue (the final part) are not in one piece, I did not expect that given the price, this is not specified and this aspect is not visible in the pictures either.
- the distance between fret-board and strings is not one of the most comfortable (although I adjusted the angle as low as possible), I have an Ibanez that is much more comfortable. So here it can be better, but is not bed either.
I strongly recommend it.


Not a bad guitar but I returned it after 3 days

I read many opinions before buying this guitar and I fell into temptation and took it. I have to say that the materials are of good quality but the guitar came to me with small residues of glue (nothing worrying, the guitar worked perfectly but it is clear that it has not been inspected very well in the factory). It's made in Indonesia, perhaps this has influenced.

The sound is powerful on the bass and is ringing on the highs with the strings 0.11-0.52 but I personally found it very hard to play. Not only for the strings but for the whole guitar, in fact it seemed very rigid and "hard" (it's the main reason why I returned it). I can't advice it to beginners because of it's difficulty in playing, maybe can be better after few weeks of training.

- cool sound
- thin neck
- solid top that gives a warm and well-balanced sound

- was really hard to play, I think is a personal taste but I've 8 years experience and it's strange that I found it hard to play


Good sounding, but

So this guitar is really hard to play. In order for the threats not to buzz, I have to crank the trhust rod so the strings are a finger distance from the neck, which makes the guitar really tricky to play.

Furthermore, the buzz still remains on threats 13-14, which can not be regulated by adjusting thrust rod. Tried leveling the threats, but the neck at the body of guitar is way to bended, where you have to basically remove the threats 13 and 14 in order to get all the threats leveled.

If buzz is ignored, open chords sound great. Electronic parts is good too.

I believe I may have gotten unlucky with my guitar, and I will be returning it to the seller

Great guitar for the money. The manufacturing quality is super! The sound is exactly what you expect from a dreadnought. Delivery to the Italian village 120km from Milan 5 days))) Super store!!!!
