Overall Rating:
For the money this guitar is excellent, I'd give it a rating of 5, but let's be real, it's is just a $300 guitar.

But I'm happy!
Model Year: 1991
Price: $300.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Albany, NY
Features:
I'm not sure where these were manufactured. Mine is unique in that it has Bird's Eye Maple sides and back. I was looking for a solid topped affordable guitar that would age well. This has been it.
Playability:
It's action is decent (average), but it's been amazingly constant despite a wide range of conditions. My guitar has been played outdoors extensively, traveled down rivers, back and forth from humid east coast to the arid west, and always been consistently playable, and holds it's tuning.
Sound Quality:
The biggest issue is the sound. For a relatively cheap guitar this one has some of the brightest biggest sound I've heard. Perhaps partly because I play 13's. The one drawback is a lack of bass... it seems to be a little high sounding.
Durability:
This has been the most amazing thing about this guitar for sure. As mentioned earlier... it's traveled far and wide, been in and out of doors and always maintains it's tuning, playability, and sound.

Overall Rating:
Fender, Alverez, Takamine. Price, looks, rep. Finish, fit, strings. With new strings, it sounds better. Still has runs in the finish and buzz at the same positions. If you want this guitar, by a blem for less money, you'll get the same guitar. Replace the strings first.
