Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I've never experienced a guitar with frets this bad.

There weren't any exceptionally high or popped up frets like is common on most guitars in this price range, but what was wrong I have never seen before:

Completely unpolished almost grainy fret-wire - when you bend notes the string makes a grinding sound, on par with the volume of the note itself.

Another issue with the frets is that they are exceptionally tiny for an acoustic, bordering on vintage strat narrowness.

The bridge saddle is plastic (of course, I certainly wasn't expecting bone) but it is intonated in such a way that it is too thin in areas and gets crushed down by the string causing a bit of fret buzz on the effected strings.

The "hump" is also present, which, what do you expect on a budget guitar.

Better instruments are out there for comparable prices.
Beautiful guitar, plays great The pictures really don't do this guitar justice as it is acutally stunning holding it in your hands, the finish just shines and the colors are lovely. Going to order another in a different color just to have around for when friends want to come over and pick a little.
Absolutely great guitar:)
