Sound — 1
I use GHS classical strings with this guitar and it sounds like crap. Unless you like how spanish music sounds from a drunk white guy in north dakota you will not like the sound of it.
Overall Impression — 2
This is great for someone learning their strings and 3 chords, then they will realize that there is not much required to make the guitar better. If you are within your first 6 months of playing it is good for bar chords but not the sound that using one should make. Usually a dull, horrible sound that you may destroy your guitar over. I wish it was overall better, and I compare it to any guitar in the world that is more than 50 bucks.
Reliability & Durability — 1
I feel that this guitar sucks in this category as well. I would not use it in a gig, unless I was playing with a half decent guitar then used the Yamaha at the last second to catch on fire. Hell, I bet it couldnt even be depended on for that.
Action, Fit & Finish — 2
Not much to say here. It sucks. Good to learn on for the first 5 weeks maybe, but after that youll want to throw it away realising how horrible it sounds and how much effort you must put into it for such a sound.
Features — 2
This guitar is like a Spanish guitar that Esteban would play if he was a homeless bum. The finish is really cheap, I've had it for less than a year and it is falling apart after moderate use and good care. It came in a box, nothing included (even for a Yamaha). If you ever come across one you will notice the tuners suck! All six are very unreliable and have a tendancy to break.
