Great sound but awful finishing
Fenditaly, 01.11.2020
As soon as I got it I thought it wasn't properly finished. Then I looked at the pictures, and that was it: the neck is not lacquered and the saddle is raw. My bad I didn't check that before. It's weird but it's fine. What was really annoying was the frets. You couldn't even bend the strings without feeling and hearing the noise of friction, that's how poorly the frets were polished; which was even clearly visible especially in the last ones. With sandpaper 400 and 1200 I got them to work. Having said that, tuners are decent, the sound is very good and so are the octaves, so it is still a good purchase all in all.

Bought this guitar for my daughter who started her guitar lessons. Compared the sound with other low priced guitars, I think this is the best guitar to start with and it will be for some coming years. Highly recommendable.
