"Decent travel guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Love the look. Appears simple in design, but is a pleasure to the eyes. I enjoy playing it and for a new guitar, the tuning is pretty stable. I must say, zZounds spoiled me on my first purchase, they gave me a bunch of picks and an electronic clip on tuner and I liked that simple touch of gratitude. This time, I bought another guitar and case, but zippo - a bit of a bummer. I will keep that mind on my next purchase soon. They say, it's not what you know, but that you care that people remember. Anyway, I will keep this guitar and enjoy it for years to come. I didn't give this guitar great rating, not because it is a poorly built and bad sounding guitar, its simply middle of the road priced guitar, but it is "bang for the buck" quality.

Sound
Overall a decent sound for the range of this guitar. It does sound better using an amp. It take a bit more pick pressure or strumming force to get a good sound, but it does decent. I have a problem with the 6th string buzzing on me and the 2 string tuner is a bit tight to turn. The KOA and gloss is an eye catcher for sure and overall well built to last.

Features
I love the dark KOA glossed wood - great look! I like the threading of the strings through the bridge without the pins - nice! I heard many are not fans of the volume control in the sound hole, but I like it there, it's out of my way, but accessible. I like the plug in amp hole in the rear, keeping it simple.Lastly, the tortoise read more shell inlay - touch of class that really makes the guitar pop and seem like more expensive than it actually is.

Musical Background:
Mature guitarist

Musical Style:
Country, easy listening genre.
