Walden: D310
The D310 is the most affordable Walden acoustic guitar. Designed as a performance value, the D310 includes all the features that make Walden guitars play and sound great such as the scalloped X-braced spruce soundboard, a genuine solid rosewood finger-board and bridge, and a hand fit dovetail neck joint.

Price paid: $ 155

Purchased from: Mahagony musical instruments

Features: Made in China.... not sure about year but probably pretty recent. 20 frets. Rosewood body and spruce top. the body size is dreadnought. Very slim neck... good I supose but but abit too small 4 my hands. the frets were the noyl thing they got totally right... very playable though the fingerboard be better (ebony I think). The guitar didnt come with anything other than some fucking alan key. what im really pissed at is the tuners. They look like total cheap shit and are really loose and rattle if a string is not attatched. It pretty weel built and extremely heavy. Only comes with one strap button. // 6

Sound: For a guitar of this price i guess its ok although it isnt as clear and loud as i want it to be.It is abit too rich at the price of clarity. SOunds pretty muddy whne strumming chords. // 4

Action, Fit & Finish: it came set up OK accept the action was too low so the 6th strin made a buzzing suond. This was easily corrected. once again... for a medium low end guitar like this... you would expect better tuners.i was jsut pissed tthat i had to tie the strap round the fucknig neck as there was noly one button // 6

Reliability & Durability: i wouldnt use it live as it it has noly one strap button... plastic but very solid. the other end relies on my knot tying skills with are really shitty so the strap could fall off. I've oned it for about 7 montchs and i strated playing with this guitar. i chuck it around and shit.... and it actaully is really solid. the scratches earnt too obvious cos its frosted finish but it does dent... and that looks fucking ugly // 8

Overall Impression: Fuck.. i couldnt afford an electric so im stuck with this... for a beginners acoustic... it isnt bad but i didnt noe shit and i just chose it becos it felt more solid tahn everything else in the store....i regret that... its so heavy its tiring to play. Overall its ok but u woudlnt recomend it... buy a Yamaha if ur a beginner and save some cash // 6
