Nice travelling guitar with some bearable flaws
hammerh34d, 19.10.2018
Bought exclusively as a trevelling guitar.
It is quite nicely built, fretboard is nice and neck is just fine. Hard to balance when sitting; after a series of experiments, including attaching the strap to the head, I found that it sits on your lap the best if you attach the strap normally and hang it on your right shoulder ONLY (!).
As for build quality, intonation adjustment screw fell off after a few days (guess it was not properly fixed), and tuners are very poor quality, you need to tune the guitar almost every time you play it, even several times a day. But the neck is full size gibson, and it is just fine for travelling. This little broomstick went with me to several places in Europe and to the States, and was always fun to play. And it's cheap. But if you have some more money to spend, take something more solid, especially in tuners department.

Great budget guitar purchase one of the best I've ever tried!!!!!
Michael3520, 30.06.2015
All this guitar needs was a fresh set of high quality strings and a small adjustment to the intonation and it was perfect. It has powerful and good quality sound from the pickups and build quality for the price range is great. Buy one because its a great first guitar for a beginner and even a fun addition to any seasoned players collection. Also its really comfortable to sit on the couch practicing with so you will pick it up more!
I can't fault this guitar in any way I was so surprised with it!
I tried this guitar through a small 30watt practice amp and it sounded nice and warm and when I tried it through my 100watt marshal it sounded even better. The tone is well above its price range.
I've played it more than any other one of my guitars in the last week not because its my newest addition but because it actually is so much of a pleasure to play.
