I bought this little guitar not expecting too much.
However,i was pleasantly surprised.

Sound:The guitar has a really big sound for its size.Two highest strings are ringing really bright,but what really impressed me is how clear and strong the bass is.It's very important however to choose the right strings.For example the default Daddario strings give a vibrant,brighter sound while strings like Elixir Polywebs will make your guitar sound darker and quieter.Only complain,the neck is somewhat loud.For example,slides can be a little more noisy than expected.

Comfort of playing:What is missing here is a second strap button on the top of the guitar.I don't mind since i always sit while i play,but other people might find it a con.The neck feels comfortable and the spacing between strings above the sound hole makes fingerpicking a delight.

Build:The guitar seems reasonably well built.Neck and body seem very solid.Tuners are above average but you MIGHT need to tighten them with a screw for time to time.What i'd maybe like to see are better and stronger pegs.

Overall:For that price you simply can't go wrong.That sound you get,is the sound of a guitar that costs 3 or 4 times the price of this one.

Expectations blown away
Proper Noun, 09.04.2018
Been getting into the 5ths tuned 4 string world and couldn't find what I was looking for until I came across Tenor Guitar and Tenor Banjo.

This guitar has a beautiful, sweet, crisp sound. It was smaller than I expected it to be and I thought the sound might take a hit for it, but this little acoustic is as convincing as some high end 6 string dreads I've played. I tuned it to GDAE , a 5th lower than standard because it gets me damn close to the range of a 6 string and most of the tunes I'm used to. Capo on the 5th fret and we're back to CGDA

The low end has crazy sustain and is way more booming than its size would suggest. It's slightly on the bright side due to its size but it's got really nice warm undertones. The high end has plenty of cut through and great sustain all though it doesn't sustain forever the way the low end does. This can be evened out with different bridge pins.

There are really no cons to this guitar. Immaculate finish to my eyes, great sound, unbeatable price.

Tenor Guitar
Boudleaux, 15.06.2020
Bought this for my wife ( okay, really for me ) and we both love it. I have a nice Martin guitar ... this little tenor obviously is not anywhere near the same quality but ... it's wonderful value for the price, Excellent finishing ( had to file the frets a tad, no big deal ) and a sweet sound. Highly recommended for any beginner or just anyone who wants a nice little easy to play fun instrument.

Very good product but a too high action
ashtoash, 18.05.2020
A lower action would have made the guitar more enjoyable, especially with alternative tunings. The quality of the construction is very good for the price.
