Here’s what you need to know before you read this review; first, I am not a professional musician/guitar player; however, I consider myself quite a musical person and I do own a few musical instruments including some Casio and Yamaha keyboards, flutes and have owned some very professional musical studio equipment including sound boards like AWE64 and 32 from Creative; of course, I have reviewed tons of these kind of things in the past.So, I have done quite a bit of messing around, just not a ‘professional’ type; keep that in mind. So, if you are looking at this guitar, probably you are starting out, or you simply don’t want to spend too much money on getting one of the bigger brand names; whatever, it is I hope this review helps you decide.What I liked——————+ The packaging. Amazon literally went overboard with this, the box I received the guitar in could easily be mistaken for a 40” LCD TV. In fact, I actually thought, they sent me a TV instead of a guitar. Oh how I wish :)+ Very Good Build quality. For the price, the build quality is a shocker, it’s really good and I love the colour - black, smooth and nice. There were no dings or anything, which I could find with an eagle eye. However, it’s quite light, and you might now want to drop it; it may take a drop or two, but I would just strap it on first.+ The size and weight. At 38 inches, the size is pretty good and being light weight it’s comfortable to hold.+ The accessories. For a guitar, all the accessories are included - you get the strap, replacement strings, two picks and a nylon carrying case. That’s super nice. If you are going to use this guitar to start learning, the additional strings will help, in case you break the original.+ The notes.Read more ›

First things first...do not expect a Fender or Yamaha quality guitar to pop out of that package, since you are not paying that much. The guitar is really good for beginners and the price is too awesome. I have played other high-end guitars like Fender, Pluto and Gibson, but this guitar is a real delight to play.Surprising thing is that the guitar in pic has a white seam border, which looks a bit odd, but the guitar I received was seamless black and awesome looking. I got three pics instead of two as shown, and other accessories as shown like the strap and extra string set. Be careful while attaching the strap to the guitar as it has only one fastening end at the bottom. You can attach the other end at the neck of the guitar using the black string they have provided. You can the video tutorial on YouTube on How to attach the strap if only one fastening end is given.The only disappointment is regarding the product finish. The paint is off in few places and the finish only tells you that it is not a high-end guitar. Amazon went way overboard with the packaging of the guitar, which I felt was very unnecessary. There was more than 100 bubble sheets for the protection.Pros:1. Amazing Looking Guitar2. Great Sound3. Light Weight.4. Strings and Wood Quality is very good.Cons.1. One size smaller than standard acoustic guitar (I am not sure).2. Finish is not that overwhelming.3. Guitar Action (distance between Fret board and Strings) is quite high.Overall, just go for it, its worth your money.
