Sound — 8
This was my first acoustic guitar. There is a slight stock fret buzz that seems to go away with a little peg work. I would say it is a very versitile guitar: you can play pretty much anything with it (even some moderately difficult solos).

Overall Impression — 8
Overall this is a really good guitar. You will have to mess with the pegage to get rid of some of that fret buzz, it is pretty bad out of the box. I have had mine for like 7+ months and havnt had a single problem with it. It is soooo lightweight, you can take it anywhere. I would say this guitar would be good for someone looking for a good ac/elec.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is extremely durable. The fiberglass body is very sturdy.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
There wasn't any body damage, the guitar came in great shape. However the pickup was hanging out of the inside when it arrived, but it was no problem, I just pushed it back in there and never had a problem with it.

This is a decent 21 fret acoustic/electric guitar. It features a durable fiberglass body (that doesnt seem to hurt the sound too much). It features Fishman classic 4 piezo pickup system (that actually sounds pretty good plugged in).
