Nice looking but not very high quality
MeeTooKingNothing, 05.04.2019
Guitar looks nice but does not sound very good and is not super good to play. It is not bad for the price, so if you have to be under 200? and need mic's then this is fine.
But if you do not need the mic's you could be better of with something like Yamaha C40.
If you need mic's and have a bit more cash to use, I would go with Ortega.
I bough this for work office coffee brake instrument. Just to use those few minutes for good purpose. This does not fit perfectly to that because I woul like it to be better playable, but I will try different strings to it and see if it gets better.
There is big difference between metal plated strings and the full nylon strings. Nylon ones are quieter and do not feel that well playable.
Guitar weights a bit heavy side, but not too much.
I selected this because it was the cheapest with tuner and with cutaway.
The tuner is showing about right, so you can get it into the play field, and ear tune the rest. The 12th fret is not in tune according to internal tuner.
My background for this review: I have played guitar for 25 years just for my own fun (no band/gigging), but I think I have a good feeling what guitar is good and which ones are not. I have owned many guitars, but currently I have two electrics and this is my third acoustic for now.
I did order another guitar also (the sub 100? Harley Benton HBO-850 round back). They do not have it in stock so can't say anything about it yet, but if it is not good either, these are my last HB instruments I'll purchase.
EDIT: Changed strings to A'Addario Classic (~7¤) and the sound and playability got better. For the price it is nice guitar!

Multiple cracks
Mike Q, 01.07.2019
Kept in the same room as all my guitars, was oiled and cared for. Three cracks on the body. Shocked when I spotted them.
Frets needed work when I received it.

Otherwise a nice playing and sounding guitar.
