What a great looking guitar this is, and it sounds good both amplified or acoustic. I am really enjoying playing it.
The quality of this guitar is second to none. It’s incredibly well made & sounds fantastic, both unplugged & plugged-in. The inbuilt tuner is spot-on, too! For the money you really cannot go wrong!
Fantastic , even better through an amp
Well I've only had a quick go so far. Been busy being a key worker. Feels and plays nice though.
Brilliant sounding guitar
