Good guitar for the money

By Ray

from manhattan, kansas

Not a bad guitar for the money. The build quality is nice. The overall sound is good. This guitar has good tuners that stay in tune. The electronics are simple but work great. The only problem with this guitar is that when you play chords or play too heavy it sometimes tends to rattle, which can get annoying. Otherwise its great for the beginning guitarist.

Great, Basic Acoustic/Electric

By Matt

from Streamwood, IL

I purchased this guitar primarily for recording purposes so that I could have a clean, true acoustic sound in my songs without having to mic the audio. Luckily, it gets the job done well. At first it seemed very bassy when playing chords, but ever since I replaced the factory strings with higher quality (and lower guage) strings it has been perfect. The sound is excellent when amped too, and the tone control is great for the price. I would recommend this guitar for anyone who wants a solid six-string acoustic/electric without breaking the bank.

Great AccouElec

By David

from Bethesda, Maryland

Got this Guitar for xmas and it is great. I love the tuner on the side as well as the very strong strap holders. The hard case is great with a little box which is very useful, the only thing that is not as good is when it is plugged in it doesn't sound as good as when it is not, which is annoying to me personally Otherwise, great guitar

Good guitar

By Zack

from West Palm Beach, Florida

I love my new guitar. Its got everything i want in it. The only bad thing is the fact that ,i don't know if its for all other people, my guitars saddle was very high and made it a little annoying to press down the strings below the 6th-7th fret. But its got god electronics. hopefully future buyers dont have the same issue as me.

Perfect for my needs

By Mandy

from Minneapolis, MN

I've just begun the journey of learning guitar in the past 2 months or so. I had been borrowing a friend's guitar up until a few weeks ago when I decided it was worth the investment of getting my own. I looked at all kinds of guitars in this price range and this is the one that sort of "picked me". I'm fairly petite, but even with this being a dreadnought, I find the cutaway and narrower neck make it comfortable to play still. I've read all kinds of negativity about laminated wood versus solid and the effect it has on sound quality, but I truly think this guitar has beautiful sound even for being laminate. It also comes with a really nice hard shell case, so for a beginner, I think this guitar is solidly good quality with a fabulous value!

Great Acoustic

By Tyler

from Camarillo, CA

I bought this as my first guitar close to a year ago, the black body. Overall, I am very pleased. Not only is it a very pretty guitar to look at, it sounds amazing too. I changed the strings, and everyone was commenting on how great it sounded. My only complaint is the action. The strings are so far off the fretboard, that it makes it extremely hard and painful to do bar chords. The dust shows really easily on the body, but a quick wipe with a cloth is easy. The tuner is very touchy, but very useful as well. I have had no problems with it plugged in. Overall, I am very happy I picked this one.
