I wish that I could review the guitar separately from the provided cable. I love the guitar its beautiful and seems well made and the sound quality is great. That being said someone included a instrument cable in the box with the guitar. The cable provided was cheap and flimsy and offered minimal shielding creating a distinct hum and yes I am sure it was the cable not the amp since I plugged in a much better cable and the hum was gone. I don't know if the cable comes with the Daisy Rock or if Sam Ash included it, I actually think since it was in with the guitar it came from Daisy Rock in which case they need to step up their game just because this is a beginner guitar made for girls doesn't mean they don't deserve the same sound quality as other guitars, if you are going to include a cable with your product make it better quality!
