Nice guitar but there is work for it to be playable.
Babin, 20.08.2018
Small evaluation hot because I just received it. I will talk about what awaits you when you leave the box. I will complete later for the sound side of the instrument if I am not satisfied.

At the opening it is effect wow direct, she is really beautiful and the general finish is top.

After we look more closely and we quibble:
The frets could be better finished ...
The perloid of the handle is just plastic ... (but it's still its effect and it is sure that we will not have mother of pearl at this price)
The pickups are a bit crooked (but it is easy to replace)

Now, we're going to talk about the game:
After opening the box and after tuning, it's unplayable ...
The guitar is not passed to the setting, it is impossible otherwise ...
The strings are not at all pleasant, I changed them the day after the reception.
The handle is straight as an i. No curvature and it curls everywhere.
The bridge is positioned at the maximum height on the bass strings.
The pickups are crooked and the height is not good.
The action is very high (obviously considering the setting of the easel)

So there is a little / a lot of work on it before playing and it's frustrating.

Fortunately I know how to make the necessary settings because otherwise it was luthier and a bill in addition to all these settings.

So for a first guitar and not being used to make these settings, it can be very painful.

I think that in the end I will be very happy because it is really beautiful and the sound that I draws me already.

Courage for future buyers if all guitars come out in the same state of the box, it's worth it.

I may not have had luck with this guitar or it may be normal for this brand not to adjust its guitars.
In any case my Mexican fender was better settled at the exit of the box. But not necessarily better?
