General Your general opinion of this product. When I got this guitar, I naturally had to do a set up on it because the action was high for my taste. A guitar normally has a "medium" kind of set up from the factory, so this was to be expected. After taking the bridge saddle down a bit and a small adjustment to the truss rod, this guitar now plays like an electric. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The build seems pretty good, no finish flaws, the neck is set well and the electronics are average. The only thing that seems cheap are the tuning machines which I promptly replaced with a gold set of Grovers. I did a fret polish, lemon oiled the fretboard, and put new light gauge set of strings on. It looks and feels wonderful. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The bound neck is very nice and the frets were seated nicely. I checked the fret level and they seem fine with no high spots. The fret were dressed too with no sharp edges to be found. After the bridge saddle was adjusted, this guitar plays exceptionally well. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The electronics are ok and they work, nothing spectacular but they do the job. It is a 250 dollar guitar. Plugged in, I use some light effects and it sounds fine. Action How was the action out of the box? The action was "medium" out of the box and I took the saddle down a ways. It plays excellent now, like an electric with minimal string buzz on the low E string. (I have VERY low action) Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was perfect, no flaws were found. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've had this guitar for 3 months now and it is standing up to daily playing with no problems.
Nice guitar for the money

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Build quality seems good except for one minor glitch with the fret dressing. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've only had it for a month, but I don't anticipate any problems General Your general opinion of this product. This is a very good guitar for the money - especially when one considers that it comes with a very nice hard case. The only glitch I found was a high spot on the 14th fret on the treble side. This was causing the E and B strings to go dead when fretted at the 12th and 13th frets. After close examination I discovered that this was not a set-up issue but was caused by a visible high spot on the 14th fret. It was very easy to remedy - some discreet use of a fret file and an emory board, fixed it up quickly. Still, it shouldn't have gone through QC like that. With that problem fixed, I am very happy with this purchase. I wanted a concert size guitar as I already own three dreadnaught sized acoustics - a Martin D-28, a Takamine G340SC, and an Ovation 1996 Collectors Edition Legend(made in New Hartford). As I knew when I bought it, the concert sized body is lighter in the lower frequncies, but seems to highlight the mids and trebles nicely - which is just what I was looking for. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The action is quite low and fast for an acoustic - I'm pretty sure it came through with light strings and that is what I replaced them with(Martin Marquis lights). Feels and sounds very nice. Really a pleasure to play. Controls are easy to access and work fine. Wish the tuner could be used when not plugged in, but that is nit-picking at this price. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Has a nice, fairly articulate sound which is tilted upward a little. Again - this is to be expected with the smaller concert size body and is what I was looking for. A bit of a tonal change from my dreadnaughts. Records well. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I have not found any blemishes in the finish. Again, in this price range I think it is a very handsome guitar. Very comfortable to play with the smaller, shallower body. Action How was the action out of the box? Except for the previously mentioned high fret, the action is very nice. Low enough to be comfortable to play, but with no string rattle or fret outs. I'm quite pleased with the action right out of the box.
