Sound — 8
Great for ballads and other slow songs. Sounds great played acoustically or with an amp. Can get some slight interferance if balance isn't right but if it's set-up right you'll have no problems. If your a budding Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan though this isn't the guitar for you it's not great for loads of bending in solos. I would not recommend using distortion with this guitar as the sound would not be too good. Most other effects should be fine.

Overall Impression — 10
If you want to play them slow ballads or powerfull and moving songs, this guitar is for you. At 129.99 it's a great buy, that can't be beaten. When I was looking for a electro-acoustic I looked at loads and this was the best, better even than the ones that cost 200 or even 300. The only thing I should have asked before buying it was if the price was right but thought I better not just incase it was a 1000 or something mental like that. It has evrything on it that yoyu could want and sure there will be people looking at this saying, 'I wish it had gold frets' or something like that but in the end it's a great guitar and you don't need all that stuff. It's perfection and anything else you put on it will just make it even more great so if you want to then go ahead but watch out you don't want too make some kind of super guitar that can play itself.

Reliability & Durability — 9
It's a very reliable guitar. Suitable for professional use. I personally would have no problem with playing it at a major music fetival. You can depend on it. Nothing will last for ever but this guitar is so well built that it will last for a very long time the components are not cheep bits of plastic. The machines heads are good quality and don't slip, once you've tuned it you don't need to worry about it going to of tune, even if you are transporting it somewhere, unlike most guitars that go out of tune really easily.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
It's built with the highest quality in mind. You only have to watch the EQ system balance otherwise you can get some interference. Everything on the guitar is great from the machine heads to the jack socket. The Frets are all placed correctly and the two pick-ups placed expertly to get the best sound for that ultimate acoustic experience. The quality of the components is great too so you don't have to worry abput dodgy machine heads that slip or a dodgy jack socket.

The Dualler is a smaller, slim-line guitar that allows you more room in the boot to carry around your surfing essentials. With a body only slightly thicker than your average surfboard, the Dualler acoustic sounds as warm as summer and is an absolute pleasure to play. It features dual pickups, magnetic and under saddle cable, and a built-in tuner to keep you in perfect pitch. Add a 10 Watt amplifier plus a bootful of extras: strings, picks and other accessories and the Dualler Pack is almost too good to be true!
