amazing value

I use this guitar for practicing. I have been an amateur player for about 30 years, my first "nice" guitar was a 1987 Ibanez RG550 which I played in the early 1990's until I needed to sell it to make rent in college. I'm now 48, my day job is an IT Systems Engineer so I don't consider myself a musician but I do dabble.
My girlfriend has a $5000 Martin acoustic-electric, this is not a guitar in the same league obviously, but it's about the only thing I have to compare it to, as I haven't played much acoustic over the years. If I use that guitar as a reference, I would say this guitar is much more pliable, just grabbing onto it and holding the neck makes it bend a quarter semitone or so. I bought this guitar because I was already ordering a Fusion 2 HSH FBLB I had wanted for quite a while and had to wait several months for there to be stock.
TBH, this guitar has impressed me most of the two I ordered. The strings it came with are more than adequate. The sound is warm and bright. After the strings were broken in the guitar keeps tune pretty well. Cosmetically, it is a beautiful instrument, and you'd really have to be a guitar guru/snob/luthier to know that it is a really inexpensive guitar. I think the engineering on it is excellent. I haven't tried it plugged in yet. Machine heads seem to be a fairly adequate quality. Fretwork is excellent, no sharp edges or buzzes. The action from the factory is spot-on.

Pros - inexpensive, sound quality, playability, excellent setup, looks great

Cons - Could be a bit more rigid

I highly recommend this guitar, especially at this price point

Best deal for the money

Found this guitar and just said "I have to see for myself if this is too good to be true".
I was amazed when it came to how visually stunning it looks. It came perfectly set up and ready to play.
Great guitar for anyone who wants to pick up an affordable yet good quality instrument.

The pros:
- neck, action and fretboard all feel really good. No trouble or discomfort playing whatsoever
- lovely sound out of the box, tuners also feel great
- I like the fretboard material and it looks much more expensive than it really is
- you get pickguard stickers in both black, and red (patterned) so you can choose if you want to stick it there, or just leave it as it is without a pickguard
- there's a pretty decent sounding pickup with EQ controls on the top of the guitar, making this a very versatile instrument.

Cons:
- frets are kind of harsh, and I got a scratchy feeling when playing higher up on the neck (closer to the hole), but it's manageable and you get used to it
- the pickup gets noisy on higher output levels, and touching the metal part of my cable reduces the noise, making it seem like it's not grounded properly (if that's even a thing on pickups), but on mid/lower volume it's barely noticeable

All in all, this is a guitar that's meant for the people who want to get into playing whilst not breaking the bank, or for those who are curios what you can get for less than 100€ nowadays. Love it.

Acoustic electric guitar for use away from home
Experienced BRC 08.07.2020
This is incredible value for this guitar.

I have been playing guitar for the best part of 60 years and, in terms of value for money, is one of the best I have bought. Just to put that it in context I must say it is not the best guitar I have bought but does not fall short on any aspects of being very good in construction, set up, tone and playability. I have had this just over a week and, as always, is acclimatising and being played in to suit me. I will adjust as necessary over the next few weeks, though it is just fine straight out of the box.

The strings are not to my preference, which is probably true for any guitarist who has their preferred brand and type of strings. There is nothing particularly wrong with the strIngs for any new guitarist. The temptation is to find things to criticise to justify having bought such a low priced guitar - notice I have not said ‘cheap’. It is cheap in price but not in quality.

This will be taken with me to leave with a friend when we visit so I always have a guitar available when visiting them, and, I stress, an instrument that is easy to play and sounds good. This fits the bill at a superb price.

The built in pick up and pre amp is a bonus. I have tried it out and found it very acceptable, though that will not get used very much.
