Sound — 8
I do not play much classical guitar, but more acoustic jaxx, rock, and blues. The sound is very warm even for a cheap guitar. The bass notes come out more and resonate more than the treble ones, which isnt always bad but sometimes it is. This guitar is also can get loder than most steel sring guitars (because it is a dreadnought).

Overall Impression — 8
For the price this is a wonderful begining classical guitar. If you are a pretty classical guitar player, I would chose a higher priced guitar simply because they would more suit your needs, but for the begginer this isa great guitar. This guitar also progects a lotr of sound out of it also. This overeall is a great guitar.

Reliability & Durability — 7
I can rely o this guitar totally. The only thing that probaly wont last in th next 10 years is the tuners, but that can be replaced cheaply. The finish does seem a little thin, and minor ding would probaly let you see the natural color of the wood. This guitar does also not come with strap buttons, and if you want a strap you will need one of the ones that clamps to the soudhole and end of the neck.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
This guitar is pretty durable for a cheap guitar. The finish on this guitar is one of the better mimics of french staining I've seen in a long time. The tuners are not ver sturdy and are plastic but that is really the only thing I can complain about this guitar.

This guitar was made in 2005, it has a rosewood fretboard, and I'm not sure what the body or neck wood is. The finished is a tinted stain which most classical guitars have. It has a dreadnought shape with nylon strings. No electronics. This guitar also did not come with any accesories, but I would purchase a case for it.
