"buyer beware"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
While it's a nice guitar, you can definitely feel the difference in their hybrid wood they are using to get the price down. Unfortunately, after 10 months, when I only plugged it in 2-3 times, the 4th time I plugged it in the input jack fell into the guitar. I've had that happen with acoustic electrics I've had for decades, but never a brand new guitar I've had less than a year. Worse, zZounds ceases to provide any support after 45 days so it's up to me to contact the manufacture and YOU KNOW how much of a pain that is. I would not buy this guitar again and I urge you to think twice about doing so, or buying any other equipment that might break so quickly.
