Sound — 9
I'm a pretty novice guitarist but this guitar suits the folk (fleet foxes, city and colour, etc) that I play. The sound is nice and rich but not the brightest. This guitar has a nice mellow tone that I appreciate.

Overall Impression — 9
This guitar suits my style perfectly, and you can't beat the price. If this guitar was stolen I would definitely buy another.

Reliability & Durability — 8
The finish and hardware both seem rock solid and should last a while without degrading too much.

Action, Fit & Finish — 7
Guitar was set-up extremely well, the action was low and the neck was perfectly set up. The sunburst finish looks amazing. There were a few minor flaws on my guitar though, the neck is missing a dot on the third fret and the body cavity had some plaster on part of the wood.

Features — 8
This guitar was made in Indonesia at an unknown time. Top is laminated spruce sides and back are made from meranti. Standard 20 fret neck made of rosewood. Mine is a classic dreadnought with a tobacco sunburst finish and a faux tortoise shell pickguard. Tuners and hard ware are gold, not sure of the brand.
