By James R. Demello on December 7, 2012
That is a really negative title for a guitar that is actually a pretty good deal. For reasons left unsaid I ended up with the sunburst guitar when I really really wanted the natural finish guitar to hang on my wall if it wasn't any good for playing. What I got was a good little playing guitar that I hate to look at. The finish on my guitar doesn't contain the blond highlights shown in the above picture so it really looks cheap and the black flat finish is just asking for scratches. But it grows on me.

Where the guitar shines is the playing and sound. I haven't messed with the action and truss rod yet and it plays nicely out of the box. Very bright, trebbly sound with plenty of volume for such a small guitar out of the sound ports. The neck is nothing special but your hand slides up and down with ease and the high notes are easy to play. I have big clumsy hands but can play this narrow neck pretty well without deadening the neighboring strings. I think it sounds awesome when finger-picking but the strumming sounds a little compressed, still a great little performer for both.

Very comfortable to hold.

I like to play the blues and this guitar has nice high note punch but not quite a great sustain on the bends. After writing this I think I have convinced myself that I like it even more. It does beg to be picked up and played - but what guitar doesn't?.

Great size. If only I had ended up with the blond one.

How did I get a currently unavailable guitar? In China of course.

Surprisingly loud! The location of the holes in the guitar give a great tonal response directly to the player and audience. It has a very warm sound, and is great for any beginner to intermediate player.

One problem with it though, which is why I gave it 4/5. I don't know if it was only mine, or if it's a wide ranged thing, but my guitar neck started to warp a very very very very very tiny bit after only a years of use. It is not at all visible, but now my 1-3 frets on my 1st string will play only the 4th fret for the string has lowered itself from the warp. Same goes with the 2nd string, but it only affects the 1-2 frets that only play the 3rd fret. It started out as a minor buzz, and eventually turned into unplayable notes.

Though this is normally just an uncommon problem with most guitars, it is always safe to buy a truss rod wrench and have one with you. If you are not confident in yourself to adjust the truss rod yourself, a local guitar shop could easily do it and not damage the guitar.

Otherwise from this fact, a very amazing product.

Im newer to Guitar....So take it for what its worth...I love the feel and size and the sound is Great...i took it to My local Musical store for them to Look at and they really Liked it...The Kneck was straight as can be . I was kindof embarassed to bring it there and they were like...Wow..This is nice!..
My Only Personal Complaint is that if you use a Pick...The sound it HUGE....When strumming...Very hard if you want to sing.You would have to yell to over the sound that thing produces...So i strum with hand and it Just fine...
