Great little guitar for travel and practice. Neck and fretboard are fantastic for the price. Decent sound.
Looks good & plays well
Hugely underrated guitar. Fantastic as it is, and even better with a few upgrades. Those who complain about the balance of this instrument, attach the strap at the headstock with a string like the old acoustics.
Fairly well setup, no loose parts. Bit tricky to hold, but fun for practice sessions and taking away with a mini battery amp. Ripe for upgrading of parts I think too.
Very good as a Travel Guitar. But definitely needs a strap to be able to play it properly. I used an acoustic strap as the neck tends to drop due to there not being much body to balance it out
