I love this guitar
Jimbobs 11.08.2020
Safe to say I was apprenhensive buying it, but I'm so glad I did. The only slight issue I came across was in the cosmetic end with paint at the neck and probably an extra polish on the frets. The truss rod certainly needed to be adjusted and they provide you with the corrrect tool for doing so. When this is properly set up whilst taking measurements the relief and action will likely be like mine and the whole thing plays like butter. The neck is smooth and really allows you to go places. I would recommend that you buy it, get some string changing done and have the fret rubber and truss rod adjustment and this baby will play beautifully. My other half even loves this item. It's gorgeous and so too is the sound. I should say it is also a very comfortable weight and the dimesions also provide comfortable playing. If you're in the marker for a reso, but don't want a cheap one that will turn you off, yet are not interest in +£3K, recording king provide a great lifelong companion.

Nice budget round neck
JimmySwamp 27.11.2021
I rarely play on the roundneck, compared to my main guitars, so I didn't want to spend to much.
For the price it's just as expected, plus I really dig the swampy look.
Needed to adjust the action a bit, as I prefer low (don't use the slide-bar that much).

All in all, good guitar and I am satisfied.

Looks swampy, high action works really well with a swampslide, and it sounds ever so swampy.
Absolute swamp; well worth the money.

* I should probably add that it does have some incredibly beautiful tones , especially on the higher end of the spectrum, when playing picking style without a slide aswell.

Great guitar that looks as good as it sounds
Harbroyn 11.12.2021
I got to admit, i bought this guitar because i liked the look of it. I had no way to try it out first, so i took a chance. I'm glad that i did! It looks stunning on my livingroom wall, and whenever i get the blues, its close by. If you're into delta blues and doing some slide, i highly recommend this. Great value for the price!
