This is a great acoustic guitar for the price. Sound great, has a deep full sound. More on the bright side. Started with ultralight strings and moved up to customs then light Elixer strings and the action remained the same. Sound real good through a amp and the tuner is pretty accurate. My problem is with the lacquer finish make the neck feel thicker and the whole guitar heavier. But it made the whole guitar feel solid. The controls for the electronics is in a bad place. If you had to move your picking arm over the controls like pick up something on the table. Your shirt sleeve can get caught on the volume knob. It was my first acoustic guitar and I would recommend it to anyone.
