Buy This Guitar
By: T.S. from City Island, NY
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This is one SOLID made guitar. Better than any other $199 acoustic guitar package out there. Actually, better than most $1000 guitars out there. Amazing.
How has it stood up over time?
Just got it, but take care of it, and the limited lifetime warranty will serve you well.
Your general opinion of this product.
I was expecting a "decent" guitar. I have been playing guitar for 40 years, and worked in the acoustic dept. at a huge guitar chain. This guitar is the best I've seen or played in years. Solid as hell, feels great. And the built in Shadow sound-hole tuner is awesome and extremely accurate. Great addition to an already killer guitar. And they put on a strap button on the neck heel! There's $35 extra you won't need to spend having installed!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Perfect action out of the box. I mean, PERFECT. I usually have to get a tweak or set-up done on a new guitar, but this one is ready to rock immediately.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
It's got a solid spruce top, so I expected an ok sound, but this one really projects. Strings are new, so a little bright, but give it a week of playing, and those strings will settle in nicely. Huge sound, actually
How did the stain or paint job look?
This finish is flawless. Not a drip of lacquer anywhere. And the satin finish on the neck is a pleasure to play.
How was the action out of the box?
Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Intonation, string height...everything just right. Not a buzz or dead spot anywhere on the neck.
