Overall Rating:
I looked at a gibson and a fender i chose this one becasue it caught my eyes and was cheap.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $286.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Store
Made in Idonesia. 19 Chrome golden tinted frets. Rosewood neck and sides. Tannish red spruce top. Has a treble, bass and gain control on the top of guitar. Classical style guitar with decorative design around the hole. The finish is a glossy smooth finish.Has a a head with six tuning heads on it that are non locking. The bridsge-stlye is thru the bridge. Plug input on the bottom of the guitar.
I personally like to finger pick and i seem to get a nice clean sound out of it. THe neck is rather big but i have big hands although it does cause me to bring my thumb up from the middle of the neck. Its up there with rank for a cheap guitar
Sound Quality:
Noamp, or pedals are use with my guitar just natural sound. I play classical on this guitar and since it is a classical guitar the sounds are great. THe guitar buzzes if u get really close like the 18 fret.
I need to tune my guitar about every month sometimes sooner though because of how often i play and how solid i play.Everything on my guitar is perfectly all right.
