Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This guitar completely exceeded my expectations. I was looking for a guitar that I could practice on, take to the beach, etc. I looked at many, many acoustic-electric guitars and this one caught my eye for several reasons:
1. I always wanted a classical, nylon-stringed guitar but the wide necks don't suit my style. This one is wide enough for finger-picking but feels like an electric guitar neck
2. It has the built in pickup and tuner; more about those later
3. The price, duh!
4. Okay, I admit it, it looks cool (subjective); have had a lot of positive comments on it
I have been playing guitar for more years than I care to admit. Also managed a music store where I bought, set up, and sold hundreds of guitars, from $150 Yamahas to Gibsons, Fenders, and Guilds (when they were all made in the US). So I'm not a virtuoso guitar player, but I know something about guitars. Okay, so to address some of the issues in the other reviews:...
I have owned this guitar for 3 months. I have numerous other guitars and I have played guitar for 40+ years. This guitar appealed to me because of the chambered solid body / electric classical style. This is a very good guitar for the $230. I paid. The tuner is one of the best I have ever used. The neck is good by not perfect. The finish is very good but not perfect. The sound should be amplified for best results. I am very pleased with this guitar and consider it a bargain. This is a definite keeper.
The AH-50 arrived at my home in Australia in perfect condition just 9 days after ordering - I don't know how Amazon can post it for only $25. The outer box it came in was huge. In the cardboard case was a new 9 volt battery and a hex wrench for if you ever want to adjust the neck. It's 3/4 size so it's light, made in China and the amplified sound is authentic nylon. It has excellent feedback rejection at high volumes. The action is a bit high but acceptable, the neck is screwed on, and the tonal range is limited but it only cost $260 total. The matt finish is neat - it's everything I needed. It's best feature is the built-in tuner. The worst of it is the cheap plastic tuning knobs, but they are functional. I wish I could have bought a Guardian CG-020-CT hard case with it. Overall, I think it's very good value.
