Excellent - right out of the box
Korwyn 23.09.2019
I use this guitar for playing small groups and for leading worship at church. It has now become my primary acoustic guitar.

Pros: Beautiful - I personally prefer a satin finish as opposed to the usual gloss finish, so this was a pleasant surprise for me; well set up; tone; price; pickup and electronics carry the natural tone very well.

Cons: If I had to pick out one thing, the only item I could come up with is that the built-in tuner seems to 'float' a little bit. For casual playing or on-the-fly quick tuning it's adequate but the Snark seems to be more consistently accurate.

Detailed review:

I intended on taking it to a local luthier for setup (adjusting the action, etc.) but there was no need. Did a quick tuning upon arrival - amazingly it was still almost in tune but about a step low.

* The tuners are tight and even without being too stiff.

* It plays smoothly, couldn't find any fret buzz even using capo up to the 8th fret.

* Intonation is spot on so harmonics are clean, pure sounding, and easy to hit.

* The tone is rich and full at the sound hole, and bright and full strumming at the bridge.

* The pickup is very good especially taking into consideration the price point of the guitar.

I will be purchasing additional guitars (and gear).

For its price it's definetely a good guitar!
Nice sound and beautiful look.

The sound of the pick up is better than most of the guitars in its price range, probably even better than more expensive ones.
With minor eq, compression and a bit of reverb you can definitely have a pro sound.

But if you plan to use it on a daily basis as I do for my gigs, get yourself a hard case...
Build quality is definitely not the best and it's falling apart...
I already had to replace my jack input as it got out of its place.

Generally a beautiful and good sounding guitar, with some issues due to its very low price

I didn't expect it to be that good
nikoss 06.06.2020
I bought this beautiful instrument 1 and a half year ago and I have to say this guitar is an absolute beauty.

SOUND: Beautiful rich sound across the spectrum. Unplugged this thing sounds so good! The preamp is also pretty good although I'm not an expert on this field. The only thing that I noticed is that the knobs are really sensitive but I can't tell if that's a bad thing.

HANDLING: The guitar is pretty comfortable to play, it came perfectly set up. I just picked it up and started playing. I still haven't adjusted anything, it seems to hold together pretty well

LOOKS: The design is really good as well. I have gotten so many comments from people about how great this guitar looks, especially from people who are not involved in music. It's always nice when an istrument not only performs well but also looks well.

My only problem with this guitar is that the built in tuner isn't that accurate.

Perfect for the price range
Kasck123 18.04.2017
This is my 2nd steel string guitar and i am amazed how much i got for 200¤. It sounded great straight out of the box, tuned almost perfectly. Stays in tune really well.

I mostly use it for finger picking, and it sounds beautiful also for strumming, really fills the room.
The tuner can be a bit fiddly sometimes, but you get used to it and the pickup sounds well enough for most applications.

I personally really like the slightly matt finish on this piece which adds greatly to the beauty of the wood used in making.

So far i haven't really found any cons really, perhaps it's not the most suited for solos, since i feel like the attack is slightly lower.

Overall, Relatively low budget guitar, which certainly doesn't feel cheap, and can stand up to most mid budget guitars.
