    "Inexpensive crossover axe"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Sounds OK, but soft acoustically and a bit brittle amplified. Decent for the price point, but I wouldn't gig with it.
    Feature:
    For me, the most useful features are the thinline body, narrower neck, and position markers. Easier for me to get used to than traditional classical, since I'm mostly a steel-string player.
    Ease of Use:
    After tweaking the action and filing fret ends, it's very comfortable to play.
    Quality:
    Nice-looking finish, but not so durable. Electronics are so-so. Once again, for the price point, very nice
    Manufacturer Support:
    N/A
    Value:
    I tried a lot of nylon strings at this price point, and this was by far the best, in terms of playability, and providing the features I wanted.
    The Wow Factor:
    Looks very nice
    Overall:
    This instrument fulfills my needs very well. I bought it to hava a nylon string to noodle around on, but I didn't want to pay a lot for one, since it would get limited usage. It is better than anything else I tried in the sub-$400 range. If it were lost or stolen, I would probably buy another. If you're looking for a gigging guitar, this isn't it. But it's fun to play, feels comfortable, sounds acceptable, and has good playability. If you're a steel-string player looking to experiment with nylon string guitar, I would recommend it.

    "Terrible intonation, tuning, and playability."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    The primary problem with this guitar is intonation. It's very difficult to get in tune with itself all over the neck. If you tune it using an electronic tuner and then play an E major chord (for example) in first position, and then try to play an E major chord in the 7th position, the 1st position chord will sound out of tune and 2nd chord will be in tune - truly frustrating. This goes for every other chord you try to tune up with relative to 1st position and the rest of the guitar. This guitar is obviously not made for a guitar player having a discriminating ear for intonation and proper tempering of the guitar. The engineering in terms of intonation is severly substandard.
    Feature:
    I bought the guitar from SameDay and, after receiving it, sent it back after 1 day due to the all the problems mentioned in this review.
    Ease of Use:
    The playability of this guitar is laborious, tedius, and down right frustrating. Additionally, the action is way to high, yet still produces fret buzz at various points along the neck.
    Quality:
    NA
    Manufacturer Support:
    NA
    Value:
    It's not worth the selling price ($250) in my opinion.
    The Wow Factor:
    It looks nice, but tunes and plays horribly.
