Excellent value and features, with a minor quality issue
Tekrytor, 12.07.2020
Pros:
I bought this guitar to fill a niche in my collection. I wanted a nylon string for jazzy and prog tones. It fills all my expectations well and the build quality is excellent, especially considering the price.
The sound is quite acceptable, also price considered.

Features are excellent, with the built in tuner, pickup, and preamp/EQ. All work flawlessly and make it nice to use. There was even a battery installed! The finish is fine and there are no defects or blems, satin not glossy, which I prefer

Cons:
The bridge height is set rather high, making the action about 1/4" at the 12th fret, making it difficult to play. For a beginner, this would be a problem. I'm going to file both the saddle and its block lower and get on with life. There is ample material there to do so. It's still well worth the money to me and once set, seems like it will be a fine addition to my selection of instruments. I'll update this review once I finish that effort.

Bottom line:
For the money, it's an excellent value, even with the high action. If the action were controlled better at the factory, I would have given quality 5 stars instead of 4, it's that good IMO. If it were not a fixable problem, I would have taken off more stars. If you had to pay for such a repair, it would easily cost between $50 and $100 at a shop. I would consider the possibility that it might need a little work on arrival when purchasing, so you're not disappointed if it's not perfect.

Very nice guitar
Buizerd, 03.07.2020
Very nice guitar. Nice mat finish.
Easy to play. Light and thin body.
Sound is good, plugged and unplugged.
One thing to improve is to bind the wires together, so they do not touch the inside of the body. Especcialy when playing the low string this can cause an annoying rattle.
