Of a great gift choice.
Clothsnake, 17.02.2020
This is a bit of a joke.
I was looking at this as a gift for someone who finds the cigar box guitar a fascinating thing. I won’t get them this... it feels cheap and nasty. Part of the fun was meant to be the ‘kit’ element but apart from popping some ferrules into holes and stringing... there is no crafting to do. These are easily built things and I just imagined that this could be a far better ‘kit’.
It’s basically a toy. Mine even seems to have some kind of shrink-wrap that can’t be removed making it look and sound terrible.

I wasn’t expecting a first class piece of equipment for the money... but seriously... this is not a good buy, unless it’s for a child.

Pro:
Cheap
Easy
Does play

Con:
Not cheap for what it is
Not a kit
Looks and sounds horrible

Some cons but fair for its price
geonik, 19.11.2020
Pros:
Construction and sound as expected. Easy to assemble.
Cons:
-The holes of ths saddle were so close to the box. As a result, the ferrules could not be pushed in to the holes without hurting the box.
-The 5th string (thick G) sounds overtuned when you hit it and get tuned while the sound fades out.

Overall, fair for 44euros
4-5 stars in case of right holes on the saddle and not overtuned G

This is not a toy!
theotox, 09.10.2020
Very easy to setup, amazingly good sound out of what is possibly a (partially?) cardboard body,
Also, it can be connected to an amp, which was a bonus, didn't realize it had a pickup when I bought it.
Wish it had 4 strings though.
