UPDATE: I had to return the whole original kit to get the correct items (I wanted fender amp, cable, and tuner like in the photo). So I ordered again as instructed. What I got back was sad. The guitar had marks on it, the amp was a smaller one than before, and didn't even have a name brand on it. The cable was cheaper and had spring like ends on it... nothing but the guitar was Fender. No picks came the second time. I added pictures of the second guitar with the grime and marks on it. It would have been a ton of hassle to go through the whole process a third time, so I worked with Amazon to see if they could give me credit to just get a new working amp and not have to send back the entire thing again. 👍🏻 Amazon was great, but I won't be working with this seller again.
First thing I noticed is that the guitar I was sent was not new.... or took a beating in storage/shipping. Out of the box the pick guard was scratched up and dirty, and based on a couple of scraps of 'saran wrap' still tucked under the fasteners it must have originally shipped with a protective plastic on the pick guard, but that was gone. My guess is this was a customer-returned item that was re-packaged and shipped to me (WHY is it I always seem to get home with someone else's returns??)
The bigger concern, this guitar was unplayable. The intonation was god-awful, the action way too high and the high E tuner needed vise-grips to adjust. Look, I've owned (and own) a lot of (acoustic) guitars. And I like to tinker with them, have done setups, made & replaced nuts & bridges, leveled frets, hell I even rebuilt & refinished a cousin's old fiddle. [Note... I do limit my tinkering to my less expensive instruments]. I realize any new guitar needs a set-up to get it the way an individual player likes it. But short of replacing the cheap factory strings and tweaking the action, should I have to replace the tuners, the nut, reset the neck and god knows what else on brand new guitar? I guess maybe I should because there seem to be a bunch of folks happy to spend $30-$50 over the cost of the guitar just to make it tolerable, and then give it 5-stars because its a steal at $100...huh? (hint.. it's no longer a $100 guitar..its a $150 guitar plus whatever your time is worth!)
Why not build it right and charge me $150, hell even $200 for it. That'd be a BETTER deal than this "$100" POS and I wouldn't have to burn a weekend screwing around with it. THEN I would give it 5 stars.
There ends my rant. I debated doing all this fixing and decided to return it instead, I'm gonna have them replace it, at least so I know I get one that someone else didn't already return, maybe I got a lemon.
I'll update this review when I get the replacement.
If this was a lemon, I'll up the rating, everyone/company has bad days.
If the replacement is just as bad as this one, I'll probably drop the $40-$50 on new strings,nut, tuners, etc. Do a set-up and reset the neck if necessary (it's my grandson after all). But isn't that absurd? I would have much rather spent the extra $$ and been able to give this to him tomorrow. Again, after all that I will update this review....but no way will I add any stars.
Ok, the replacement came. The tuners are better than the original, but the setup is just as bad. So... I replaced the factory strings (9s) with a little heavier (10s) strings with wound 4th string. The neck relief was fine it needed no adjustment so I mostly adjusted the action with the bridge height. (The quality of the bridge is pretty poor, the Allen head set screws seemed to vary so much that a couple were actually too big for the supplied wrench.
I have (generously) upped the review to 3 stars.. Only because at least the neck had proper relief and the frets were level. I still think they put a little more quality into this guitar and pass the cost on.
