A quite nice travel guitar

Archion, 30.08.2017
For the money, it is a pretty decent travel guitar. Although it has one pickup, you can get a variety of sounds using the volume and tone knobs. The pickup has quite high output, so if you want to get the super clean sounds, then it may not be the best choice. The neck and fretwork feel quite good as well.
But the strings on the guitar felt like spaghetti, so I replaced them. When getting new strings you have to be aware of the fact that although the neck is of normal length, the guitar itself is much shorter, so you need to get thicker strings. I myself use 11s. Another thing you have to be aware of, is that due to the shape and size of the instrument, it is quite neck heavy, so you need to get used to it while sitting. Also, when using a strap I recommend you to fasten the strap behind the nut as you do with a regular acoustic guitar.
The minor problems I have are with the tuners sometimes not holding the tuning so well and the pickup screws tending to fall off.
But overall you'll get a pretty decent guitar and many amazed looks for the electric guitar this small size. Pair it with the Blackstar Fly 3 and you can rock out everywhere you want!

not bad

Tea O, 23.09.2017
nice little guitar, could have had a better quality finish ,If you look closely you can see where someone in the factory had filled in unwanted frets with wood filler (so don`t look to closely ) but it does the job well and is easier to store than a full sized guitar.. cheap and cheerfull playable guitar
