I play blues, rockabilly and country and it fits the genre quite well at least for the price range! A little bit trebly and it can get a little bit messed up and confused tones if I play hard with a pick or fast but otherwise it handles very well!
Overall Impression — 10
I play manly electric guitar, have 2 Strats, 1 Tele and one Epiphone Sheraton for that but I was looking for a low budget acoustic guitar for traveling and playing on the beach without worrying too much so I guess I find the perfect match. It's a good guitar for a acoustic jam with friends and it has that classic look you can't resist. I would buy another if I got this one stolen or lost and for the price I couldn't find a better choice! Go for it you won't be disappointed!
Reliability & Durability — 5
Not to use on live performances at least without some mic going on because it's not enough loud. You would need to play hard and lose some of the good tone os it. Quality is good and I think it can last decently with a little bit of care. I wouldn't drop it on the the floor though! The finish it's not so natural but okay for this price range.

It came almost new for me, even with the original strings on it so I guess the set up is right up from the factory. It's good for me and I find it very easy to play comparing to a Taylor I had before. Kinda hard to take out the pins from the bridge as they can get damage by taking them off... (I used a tool with some rubber protection and it did well but it's a little bit dangerous). There was some oxidation on the frets but it easily came off with some cleaning product and now it looks great! The tuners were a little bit unscrewed and therefore some buzz was coming when strumming some strings but after a tighting it was just fine. Some buzz was detected on the 14 fret of the 4 string but nothing to worry about, maybe some set up made by a professional will make that issue flawless. Neck is perfect! Inside I could spot some glue out off the place but you need to peek inside the body to check that out, just not very good for eye seeing but nothing to worry about.

Mine is made around 2010 made in china, natural a big dreadnought that I was looking for for my style but without electric part. All laminated woods for the body. Did not included any case or bag so I'll be buying one for like 20 euros with 20mm foam of protection from Fender.
