Gorgeous looks with good sound and mediocre build quality
deeengee, 12.04.2020
Sound is good. Ziricote is distinctively rosewood-like. Full and deeply warm, especially with open tuning parts. I have played it every day for the last two weeks, cannot get enough.

Guitar looks great, real pleasure to gaze upon it. One unexpected detail is that the rosette does not look to be made with real abalone veneer, more like a print - it does not glitter under different angles/lights.

The big disappointment is the build quality. There is a tiny crack on the lacquer coating above the 5th fret dot. Frets themselves are not filed uniformly, you can see variations in how are edges rounded and some are sharper to the touch than others. There are occasions you feel "biting" to you thumb under-skin on fast fret switches, when reaching over the top. Coating is not uniform in joints and in sound hole there is a "bump" made of lacquer, just above the electronics.
Most disappointing part is that i have to re-tune it every morning. Overnight 6th and 5th go out of tune, sometimes 2nd as well. Tuning peg on 1st is much stiffer from the rest. Was i just unlucky with specific piece?

Overall: Great looks, good sound, pleasure to listen and just look at it. Build quality should have been better for it's price.

Easily playable
Nick No Name, 30.12.2020
Fretting and neck (both shape, width and action) makes this the easiest playable guitar I've tried - sound is good, balanced and easily controllable off-mic, and when the mic (piezo) is on, it shines with a crispness and impressive details.

Neck seem to have received a small (1-2 mm) blow discolouring the laquer when received, but overall finish is good, and visually a gem, assembly seems flawless.

Its early days, though - the guitar it replaces is close to 40 years (except for the spareparts) -- so check back in 20 years to get an update.
