A very nice guitar!
It's difficult in the first minutes due to small body size.
You have to hold it either with an acoustic guitar strap, or between your legs or using your right hand.
First thing I did was to replace the strings (with Ernie Ball 2223) and setup the intonation. It was terrible, but it's a new guitar, so this is a basic setup for everybody I guess.
I had to move the bridge back a couple of millimeters and then fine-tune the intonation.
The action and the neck relief were OK for me.
The finishing in the body is great, in the fretboard not-perfect, but not bad. The frets are great, just the wood it had some scratches in the first fret, but no minor that's not a problem.
I liked the gig bag.
It also had an allen-wrench and a cable.
All you need is a mini battery powered amp like MS2 and you are ready to travel the world :) :) :)

The humbucker is great! It's powerful. The volume/tone knobs are working as expected.

If I had to find problems for that guitar, the first one is that the headstock is in black and the body in red (I would prefer it to be color-matched) and that the strap in the bridge is useless. You should use a strap for acoustic guitar.
The tuning keys was too soft, so I had to tighten using a screw.

Anyway, this guitar is great, especially for it's price!

Nice low cost travel guitar

This guitar is surprisingly well performing given it's price. It has a full size neck with 24 frets and a thick or fat profile. It is quite decent to play and it has a nice blues rock sound of the only pickup. The volume and tone knobs are placed a bit close together and needs getting used to.

Given the small body the balance is bad. It's heavy in the neck, so you need to compensate with your hand on the bridge both standing up using a strap and sitting down.

The small size makes it very good for traveling and it's great fun with a small portable or headphone amp and it looks good too.

If your in the market for full scale guitar small enough to bring with you at a low price, this guitar will be great fun even tough it has some quirks.
