Okay, let's get something straight right away: for this price, you should NOT be expecting much. Any guitar under $200, let alone a resonator with electronics, is going to be cheaply made. Having said that, on with the review.

I just unboxed this guitar about an hour ago. My initial impression of the packaging was good. It was packaged pretty minimally, but there was some foam wrapping around everything and even underneath the strings. My guitar arrived without a scratch on it.

This is a nice-looking guitar, and while my frets aren't nearly flat, the neck pretty much is and I don't notice any excessive string buzzing. For any guitar under $400, I usually expect neck problems, and I would consider this problem-free. As far as the frets go, even the $600 guitars that you buy at Guitar Center will not come with properly leveled frets. If you're looking for a perfect neck and flat frets, you need to take whatever guitar you have to a luthier. Almost all guitars are mass produced and will not have level frets. Personally, as long as the problems aren't major, I think that most people are just griping. Most guitars, even with slight neck and fret problems, are still perfectly playable. Regardless, I expected some problems but was happy with what I got, a playable guitar.

The size of the body is fairly small. I like this a lot, because I hate big, thick acoustic guitars, even though those big, thick bodies help them sound better. I like the weight, not too heavy, but doesn't feel cheap because it's not extremely light. If I had to guess, it's probably somewhere between 5.5 and 7 lbs. Feels solid. The neck seemed short, but compared to my SG clone, it looks almost exactly the same length. Maybe I just haven't picked up a guitar in a while.

Sound is meh.

Originally, just a year ago, I loved this guitar. It played great, sounded great. Every bit as good as the previous Resonator I bought from these folks. Recently, a year later, the guitar has developed a rattle in the steel pan. Tonight the little sound hole ring cone fell off. I'll just glue it back but man, not so sure this is the deal I thought it was.

First fret buzz and the ends of the frets are not polished or snag free.
A good sounding instrument for the most part

Guitar is well constructed - needs setting up, the neck,pickup,and action, if your good at working on guitars, this puppy is a dandy, and you can have this playing like a national in no time. I was pleased with the puurchase . But. I do recommend that if your not aquianited with guitar set ups too take it in to a pro and have it set up. It will be worth the money. Great resonator for the casual player and also for the money.

you can't beat the price, a no name guitar, good thing because it is cheap but I took it apart, changed the fret heights, adjusted the neck and the bridge, lightened up the strings to get the great twang I was looking for, Hey 100 years ago guys were building guitars out of oil cans, cigar boxes, anything they could get their hands on, I am happy with the cheapest guitar in my arsenal, I got what I wanted and with a little tlc it's great

The biggest disappointment I have with the guitar is that it just doesn't have that resonator guitar sound.It pretty much sounds like any other acoustic guitar.Electrified,it sounds even less like a resonator.With that said though,the overall quality of the guitar is surprisingly good.Other than a couple of very minor imperfections the guitar looks and plays really well.I just wish it had the distinctive resonator sound.

I didn't have high expectations but I figured at the price it was worth the hardware alone. I could always strip it down and convert another guitar to a resonator. I was wrong. I had to file a few frets down but other than that it arrived playable, no adjustments to the neck at all. when it is plugged in it loses most of the tinny sound I was looking for, it is quick to distort. You have to play around with the settings to keep it clean (drop out the lows and back off the presence and boost the signal through the amp, not the guitar) but I've had great results. I've been playing it for a month or so and at first I thought it was character instrument, only good for certain songs or sounds. It proved more versatile and I use it exclusively now. you can get a clean acoustic sound, a slight frequency boost makes good fuzz box tone, boost the bass for a thick distortion, mic it for the tinny sound. it covers a lot of ground for one instrument. I am very happy with it.
