THE PORTABILITY OF THIS GUITAR IS THE BEST YOU CAN GET WITH THE RIGHT FRETBOARD SIZE. I like the look of the guitar a lot, along with its compact size and weight and the carrying case that came with it. It really is the most compact guitar of the "right scale". the feel and color, and the tone is also very nice. BUT, there are two things that the company can do to make this guitar perfect, which is (1)replace those wheels that bends the strings to the back of the guitar. because every 2 strongs share one wheel, tuning the guitar is very hard because it changes the tention of the second strings on the wheel a lot when you tune the first one. (2) THE GUITAR IS NOT DESIGNED TO LET YOU DO ANY BENDING. because once you bend a note or two, it goes waaaayyy off tune (it is not designed to be used with a wammy bar, plus there no fexibility to allow you bending.) This is a major flow for the guitar because BENDING IS A PART OF PLAYING A GUITAR. im very reluctant to say this but... i would probably not recommand thsi guitar to a friend. although the rest of the guitar is excellent, but not being able to bend the strings is like not getting half of what you paid for..
