Sound — 8
This guitar suits my music style that I play on it very well keeps op great I play country music on it. Its an acoustic so I can't use any amps or effects on is noisy loud enough to hear it all through the house when I play it. It has a rich full sound and yes it has a bright and clear sound its an acoustic so no special sounds.

Overall Impression — 8
I play country and rock it is best with country its a great match for for me and what I do. I've been playing for 2 years one year with this guitar I own a Morgan electric guitar a Behringer amp and a First Act guitar. I don't regret buying this guitar nor would I need to ask any more questions if it were stolen or lost I would miss it but I would buy this style guitar again along with a Gibson. I did compare it to a silver tone but didn't have the money for the silver tone so I got this one.I love the way it sounds. I don't hate anything about this guitar. My favorite feature would have to be the color. If your looking for a cheap or even a good guitar for learning your search should be over.

Reliability & Durability — 6
This guitar is defiantly not for live on stage performance but great for sitting around the camp fire and playing a tune. I have dropped this guitar 4 or 5 times and is still in good shape it has a few chips and scratches but is still holding up as long as you don't abuse it it will last a long time and hold up. I haven't had a problem with the strap buttons although I would invest in some strap locks. You can depend on it for a small gig in the town I would use it with out a back up without a doubt. I've play this guitar a lot and it has not faded finish is good enough to last.

Action, Fit & Finish — 5
The guitar was set up well in the factory. You can play almost anything on it. You can just pick it up and go with a little tuning adjustments. This guitar hods tune for months with out being tuned with or without playing action is a little high but I still like it.

Features — 6
Made in I believe 2004 in China. Its a great first guitar for learning. It has 20 frets. A maple neck and rose wood finger board a laminate black top. It's a pine wood. It is a black painted guitar with a cream colored outline. Its a dreadnought body style. The bridge style is I believe a floyd rose. It didn't come with any accessories when I got it. I love this guitar.

    If you can make a low end guitar sound good your playing pretty good.If you have any amount of talent you should be able to.
