I read a different review on AMS regarding the same issue I ran into when I got my new Michael Kelly Patriot; the way the guitar is packaged is awful. It looked like it was thrown in the box before being shipped and if anything I’m surprised the guitar wasn’t broken upon arrival. It’s a really pretty guitar, and beyond the normal issues you’d expect from a $400 guitar like fretwork, setting up, blemishes in the finish, this guitar is well worth the money! You do run a high risk of poor packaging though, and though it didn’t happen to me the other guy from AMS had to order two Michael Kelly’s because the packaging was so bad both his guitars arrived broken.
