  5. Performance

  6. This guitar feels/looks/sounds like a much more expensive guitar. The action was a little high for me. I had it lowered a little and now it plays perfectly.

  7. Performance Rating: 10

  8. Sound Quality

  9. The overall sound is incredible. It sounds great played loud. The only problem is that the lowest two strings generally sound a little dead. That could just be a problem with mine.

  10. Sound Quality Rating: 10

  11. Construction

  12. I’ve abused it every way you can and it still holds up. This is a really solid guitar.

  8. Sound Quality

  9. Has a clean sound, doesn’t buzz, and isn’t noisy. I play a wide variety of styles and am very pleased with the sound I am getting.

  10. Sound Quality Rating: 10

  11. Construction

  12. It’s not as heavy as I thought it would be, but it still feels really solid. I really like the neck. It also is easy to tune and stays in tune very well.

  5. Performance

  6. This guitar sounds great, I have picked up $1000 Martins and I can not tell a whole lot of difference. It is easy to play and it feels good.

  7. Performance Rating: 10

  8. Sound Quality

  9. It has great tone but it does seem to buzz just a little if you play it too hard. I don’t think it is a manufacturer defect, just the way you pluck the strings, but this does not affect its playability in the least.

  10. Sound Quality Rating: 8

  11. Construction

  12. This guitar looks like a much higher end guitar than it is. The wood and finish are perfect. The only thing I don’t like about it is they did not cover the dots when they stained the fretboard so they do not appear white and bright like they should, but that is too small of an issue to really matter.
