Got this guitar to have something cheap to practice with and I'm pretty satisfied with it. It's lightweight and the neck feels good (a little on the thicker side.) The only complaint I really have is that it was setup pretty badly with a lot of buzzing. I set it up and removed the buzzing and that's no longer an issue thankfully. Some things shown in the description and in the pictures aren't on the EC-256. Firstly this is a CHINESE guitar, not Indonesian and the fretboard is much darker than the one in the picture. The board is actually so dark it could almost pass as ebony since it makes the black binding look nearly invisible. Lastly the model number inlay on the 12th fret does not exist, it's just another flag inlay. The pickups sound good enough. Overall, it looks nice, feels nice, but I don't see this thing being anything more than a solid practice guitar.
