As a beginner guitar player, I can't provide much input about the value of this instrument for more experienced players, but for me it is a beautiful guitar with perfect satin finish, which sounds awesome. D'Addario strings have nice aggressive sound in the lower range and ringing heights. I really like the wider nut, so if you have short and chubby fingers like me, you will love it.

Hafinho, 22.05.2018
I have (unfairly) subjected this guitar to the direct sound comparison with a Martin D-18 and a Lakewood M32-CP Custom. First of all: No, she can not beat them. That would lead to the x times higher price of the reference guitars but also ad absurdum.

Before the comparison, I put on new strings (Elixir Nanoweb), oiled the fretboard, corrected the strings a bit (it is OK at the factory, but a shade too high for my taste). I recommend the string changes in any case. Only with the new strings a serious assessment is possible. The raised Daddario are certainly ok, but probably due to transportation and storage probably many weeks on it and therefore no longer fresh.

The sound is quite amazing in view of the price. In the bass range maybe a bit thin and sustain it should be a bit more. But that is whining at a relatively high level. In direct comparison with the above guitars, of course, one hears a difference that is less significant than expected (before changing to new strings, however, he was tall). The intonation is fine.

I find the processing excellent. I searched the whole guitar several times. The inlays were helped with some filler, but even you have to look carefully. Otherwise, I really could not discover a processing shortage.

The tuner of the built-in Fishman did not impress me in terms of function and readability of the display.

Conclusion: For this price you get a sonically good (but not very good) guitar, which was set neatly by the factory and also processed excellently. For people on a budget, an absolute recommendation. It is remarkable how you can build such a good guitar for this money.
