Great Guitar
Aspiring Rocker, 30.09.2020
I've had this guitar for nine months now and I can't fault it. I've let people with many years playing experience use it and they are all impressed.
This is my first new guitar in this price range. So I was nervous before I bought it, but it has been great to use and has encouraged me to improve as a player. Its well built and I've used it most days and it still looks new.
But overall its the sound that is the really fun part. Tremendous resonnance, and I like the way you can pull many different sounds from the way you play it. I play acoustic versions of classic rock and pop songs and it has great character that encourages you to get it the song. The action suits me well, and seems to work well for others.
I found the metal strings a challenge at the beginning but I'm glad I stuck with them. I'm not sure an on-board tuner is essential but it is convenient and it was easy to change the battery. I haven't used the amp much because of lockdown, but have tested it and it sounds good.
If you are thinking of buying this size and style of guitar I'd recommend this model.
