Perfect instrument for Me
By: Bryan Thompson from Arnold, MD, USA
Your general opinion of this product.
I received the product in perfect condition. I don't think for the same amount of money you could buy a nicer instrument. i tried many guitars in this price range including Martin and Taylor and became very discouraged on being able to find the right instrument and the tone i was looking for. the other brands guitars sounded flat, brittle, and weak. This guitar sings and has a very deep and natural reverb that sounds like it oscillates. the more power you put into the instrument the more she pays you back with gorgeous tone. If you want to hear the guitar you can find me on Soundcloud under Bryant0703 the track The Nautilus Part Something is currently a guitar duo and features the guitar for both lead and rhythm. Recording was done on an AKG C1000S and a CAD Trion 7000. the CAD i will be reviewing next.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It appears to be well made, however for more money you could definitely step into some Rolls Royce model guitars. I think with proper care the guitar will last many years.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The guitar is balanced, maybe leaning a little more towards the dark side. Lows are not too low and the highs sparkle.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Looked very good, no flaws found.
