"Reasonable Expectations"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is a cool little guitar. I bought it for the novelty of it, to jam on the couch with and to travel with. It's exactly what is advertised. Consider the price point and adjust your expectations accordingly. Mine is solid and resonant, with no sharp fret edges etc... the neck joint seems nice and snug. The hardware is decent. The pickups are surprisingly pleasant. Clear with lots of bite, and respond well to pick dynamics and volume changes. They're no Duncan's or dimarzios, but I don't feel the need to rush out and change them tomorrow... The machine heads are a little sketchy, and it'd be nice to get a gig bag considering how difficult it will likely be to find one, but overall a nifty little guitar.
