Great for travelling
Excellent guitar and service as is usual
It is what it is, with no pretensions at being a top class guitar. I bought it to keep my fingers busy while I was travelling. Taking my main instrument would have been impossible. The Shorty is cheap! The pickups and other hardware reflect that. But the fretboard is absolutely fine. And, to be honest, the sound isn't that bad!
