amazing value
KevJuice, 21.05.2021
I use this guitar for practicing. I have been an amateur player for about 30 years, my first "nice" guitar was a 1987 Ibanez RG550 which I played in the early 1990's until I needed to sell it to make rent in college. I'm now 48, my day job is an IT Systems Engineer so I don't consider myself a musician but I do dabble.
My girlfriend has a $5000 Martin acoustic-electric, this is not a guitar in the same league obviously, but it's about the only thing I have to compare it to, as I haven't played much acoustic over the years. If I use that guitar as a reference, I would say this guitar is much more pliable, just grabbing onto it and holding the neck makes it bend a quarter semitone or so. I bought this guitar because I was already ordering a Fusion 2 HSH FBLB I had wanted for quite a while and had to wait several months for there to be stock.
TBH, this guitar has impressed me most of the two I ordered. The strings it came with are more than adequate. The sound is warm and bright. After the strings were broken in the guitar keeps tune pretty well. Cosmetically, it is a beautiful instrument, and you'd really have to be a guitar guru/snob/luthier to know that it is a really inexpensive guitar. I think the engineering on it is excellent. I haven't tried it plugged in yet. Machine heads seem to be a fairly adequate quality. Fretwork is excellent, no sharp edges or buzzes. The action from the factory is spot-on.

Pros - inexpensive, sound quality, playability, excellent setup, looks great

Cons - Could be a bit more rigid

I highly recommend this guitar, especially at this price point

Best deal for the money
Dynosius, 16.06.2020
Found this guitar and just said "I have to see for myself if this is too good to be true".
I was amazed when it came to how visually stunning it looks. It came perfectly set up and ready to play.
Great guitar for anyone who wants to pick up an affordable yet good quality instrument.

The pros:
- neck, action and fretboard all feel really good. No trouble or discomfort playing whatsoever
- lovely sound out of the box, tuners also feel great
- I like the fretboard material and it looks much more expensive than it really is
- you get pickguard stickers in both black, and red (patterned) so you can choose if you want to stick it there, or just leave it as it is without a pickguard
- there's a pretty decent sounding pickup with EQ controls on the top of the guitar, making this a very versatile instrument.

Cons:
- frets are kind of harsh, and I got a scratchy feeling when playing higher up on the neck (closer to the hole), but it's manageable and you get used to it
- the pickup gets noisy on higher output levels, and touching the metal part of my cable reduces the noise, making it seem like it's not grounded properly (if that's even a thing on pickups), but on mid/lower volume it's barely noticeable

All in all, this is a guitar that's meant for the people who want to get into playing whilst not breaking the bank, or for those who are curios what you can get for less than 100€ nowadays. Love it.

My first guitar
The Dragon Guitarist, 10.11.2020
I bought this guitar at the beginning of the lockdown and started my guitarist journey with it, without any previous experience whatsoever. It was a very good decision.

For a beginner guitarist this is great. There is a lot of volume, the sound is clear and the finish is sturdy. The color stands out and it really incentivizes you to keep the instrument around, just to be in sync with its "vibe". The only drawback (and it's not directly related to the guitar, but to my level as a guitarist) were the strings, which were a bit too thick and I had to restring my guitar with thinner strings. In hindsight, this was also a good experience, as I got to see how the actual build is holding, how the strings are fixed, etc.

I use it to practice and to sing to small audiences. It really feels and plays like a "workhorse" and I can see myself playing it a few good years from now. Definitely recommend it!

Bonne guitare surtout pour le prix
keumard2000, 06.04.2021
Finition ok, look sympa en bleu. Le seul problème rencontré a été une cheville qui a cassé lors du premier changement de cordes.
Niveau son, je n'ai pas assez de recul, c'est la seule electro-acoustique que j'ai eu (je re-débute la guitare après des tentatives abortées par manque de temps à consacrer à la musique et un passé de bassiste).
Il faut l'accorder régulièrement et les mécaniques ne sont pas très précisent.
Le manche est fin et agréable, l'action est peut-être un peu haute.
Bon rapport/qualité prix.
