Good but with some issues.

31.03.2016
I ordered this guitar several reasons. The most important reason was that the Thomann website said that the nut width was 45 mm. But when I received the guitar I measured the nut width and it was 43 mm, so that was a disappointment.

Another disappointment was with the tuning keys. I started playing the guitar right out of the box and it was very nice, but the strings on it were old and dirty and I also noticed that there was some corrosion on the base of one of the tuning keys. So, I decided to change the strings and as I was doing that I realized one of the tuning keys did not work. The tuning key for the D string did not hold tension so I could tune, whenever I turned the key it would release the tension and the string cannot be tuned. I took the guitar to a local luthier who told me that the tuning keys were dead and I had to buy a set of new tuning keys and have them installed by a luthier, which cost money.

These were major disappointments, but the guitar has a nice tone and overall OK for the price. But of course it would have been much better without the above problems.

Pretty good compared to the price

29.01.2017
I think personally , you can not get an acoustic guitar with this price and higher quality. It is pretty satisfying. I was actually amazed with the pickup which works pretty good and can also handle a little bit of distortion effect.
I would recommend this guitar if you do not want to spend too much money on your acoustic guitar but in the same time you are looking for a good quality guitar.
