Sound — 8
Its got quite a nice rich, warm sound, not as tinny as my friend's Yamaha.
Overall Impression — 4
As much as I like the warm sound and everything, this is not a good beginners guitar because the strings are so high. Maybe it wouldn't matter to a more experienced player, but I find it affects my playing and I'd definately choose a different one if I had the chance.
Reliability & Durability — 8
Despite a few knocks it still sounds pretty good and has a nice solid body.
Action, Fit & Finish — 4
One thing that has really held me back on this guitar is that the strings are too far away from the fretboard. Its so damn annoying cos I have to work so hard to play one damn barre chord. Another thing is that the E string has fret buzz which hacks me off.

My friend purchased it a couple of years ago, never used it so I bought it off her about a year and a half ago. Not much to say...It was made in Indonesia, 21 frets, comfortable neck. Really nice finish, a lovely dark sunburst.
