A serious cigar box guitar
Timo_P, 30.03.2020
I was looking for something better than an entry-level DIY kit and this is an ideal option. As I studied decades ago keyboards, a wanted a four string model to play chords for home recordings.

The neck was practically straight, I had to loosen the truss rod a bit. I also lowered the action slightly, to my surprise I found a small strip of metal between the plastic bridge and the floating wood support. Got the action at the low string to around 2.6 mm, I am ok eith that. The bridge is indeed a floating piece of wood, pushed down by the strings. So adjusting intonation is a bit tricky, but doable. A mechanical bridge would be better.

The string spacing is about 12 mm, perhaps 1/2 inch. As the neck and fretboard are probably from some standard guitar, outermost strings are about 10 mm inwards from the edge of the neck at the 20th fret.

The box is rather good, but not perfect quality. The finishing shows certain spots where the treatment is not equal, but nothing drastic.

The tuners are ok, but not perfect quality. I can get the guitar tuned ok and it stays in tune for long enough, but somehow there's a bit too much loose action the turning the heads, maybe it is the strings, I don't know.

The acoustic sound is not spectacular, but electronically ok. Definitely not to replace an acoustic guitar, for less money one finds something better.

In conclusion, a reasonable entry into the world of cigar box guitars.

Looking for a bluesy vibe..but I found a pleasant guitarlele. Tested only acoustically and I am quiet happy. Looking forward for amp test. I went for a good old blues cigar box guitar, but this JN brought my jam to a more versatile blue jazzy sound. Overall I will keep 'her'.. I like it.

Es ist soweit. JN ist letzte Woche bei mir angekommen.
Hab es gleich ausgepackt und beäugt. Bin sehr erstaunt über die Bundreinheit des Instuments (mit Stimmgerät) Hätte das für den Preis nicht erwartet. Jetzt nach fast einer Woche im Gebrauch und mehrmaligem Nachstimmen stimmt das Ding. Schließlich müssen sich die Saiten sich ja an mich gewöhnen. Klangmäßig ist es voll in Ordnung. Und über die Verarbeitung kann ich auch nicht meckern. Bin sehr zufrieden. Hab jedenfalls kein "Montagsprodukt" erhalten. Spaß macht das Ding auch noch

Es un instrumento muy sencillo, fabricado con materiales muy básicos y ajustando los costes. Dicho esto, no está mal para probar. El mayor problema que tiene son los clavijeros, que no mantienen la afinación lo bien que deberían y la pastilla, que no es nada del otro mundo.

A su favor: El precio, incluye bolsa para guardarlo y responde lo justo para que sepas si te gusta el instrumento y quieres ir a por uno mejor.
