The action on this guitar was set fairly low, although I tweaked it a bit lower. The T-160 is easy to play and represents an incredible bargain at its price point.
Sound Quality:
The tone is surprisingly good on this guitar - considering its price tag - with nice bottom-end, clear mids and trebles. That said, it's clearly not a high-end Gibson, Martin or Taylor, but it's a great guitar that compares very favorably to guitars in the $600 - $1000 range
The workmanship on the T-160 seems to be quite solid and cosmetically appealing.
