Sound — 9
Its great for an acoustic that costs only 250. It's obviously not a Martin but you still get a really nice warm sound from it. When I plug it in, I run it through a Marshall MG15DFX. With reverb or chorus from the amp really awesome sounds can be made. The guitar is pretty loud without being plugged in, I've played on an Epiphone aj-1 and a 12 string Martin and I'd say its a little less warm and loud as the Martin, but its incredible for the price.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is perfect for my acoustic songs. While I can't play speed metal or hard rock on it obviously, it still lets me have a lot of fun. I would definitely buy it again but I'd probably buy a new electric first because my Ibanez is kind of crappy. I definitely recommend it
Reliability & Durability — 8
The guitar will definitely stand, the battery casing on the electronics however, feels somewhat week. It doesn't have any strap buttons which I was kind of upset about. The finish isn't going to wear away, but it will get nicks and smudges with extreme ease due to the fact that it's a black mirror top.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The factory set up was amazing, I haven't had to do anything with it. The action was perfect, I had previously been playing on an electric for over a year and the action of the acoustic was not to hard a transition. Finish was flawless... however, if you are obsessed with keeping it clean the black mirror finish shows fingerprints and dust like crazy. It looks amazing though.
