For a guitar of this price i guess its ok although it isnt as clear and loud as i want it to be.It is abit too rich at the price of clarity. SOunds pretty muddy whne strumming chords.

Overall Impression — 6
Fuck.. i couldnt afford an electric so im stuck with this... for a beginners acoustic... it isnt bad but i didnt noe shit and i just chose it becos it felt more solid tahn everything else in the store....i regret that... its so heavy its tiring to play. Overall its ok but u woudlnt recomend it... buy a Yamaha if ur a beginner and save some cash

i wouldnt use it live as it it has noly one strap button... plastic but very solid. the other end relies on my knot tying skills with are really shitty so the strap could fall off. I've oned it for about 7 montchs and i strated playing with this guitar. i chuck it around and shit.... and it actaully is really solid. the scratches earnt too obvious cos its frosted finish but it does dent... and that looks fucking ugly

Action, Fit & Finish — 6
it came set up OK accept the action was too low so the 6th strin made a buzzing suond. This was easily corrected. once again... for a medium low end guitar like this... you would expect better tuners.i was jsut pissed tthat i had to tie the strap round the fucknig neck as there was noly one button

Made in China.... not sure about year but probably pretty recent. 20 frets. Rosewood body and spruce top. the body size is dreadnought. Very slim neck... good I supose but but abit too small 4 my hands. the frets were the noyl thing they got totally right... very playable though the fingerboard be better (ebony I think). The guitar didnt come with anything other than some fucking alan key. what im really pissed at is the tuners. They look like total cheap shit and are really loose and rattle if a string is not attatched. It pretty weel built and extremely heavy. Only comes with one strap button.

    wow that sounds like a crappy guitar. I paid only 230 for my d550ce and I really enjoy playing it, all I can say is its hard to bitch about a guitar you only paid 150 bucks for
    Most acoustic guitars have one strap button. You tie the other end of the strap to just above the nut with a bit of shoelace.
    i don't what your complaining about this was my first guitar and i thought i sounded good and it played well, except my action was too high oh and another thing, have you thought of putting another strap button on maybe?
    Have 3 Walden's this one, a D740,and a G640. What sold me on my first Walden was their tone. Bought this one to take with me when I go away from the house. Paid $110.00(brand new) and think it was a STEAL at that price. Also will take it to my Luthier and have a 2nd strap button put on it.
