Sound — 7
I play alt and modern rock songs on it and it sounds good, out of the three non electric guitars I've played this is the best of them.
Overall Impression — 7
Overall impression is that it is good for beginner and intermediate players on a budget. It is great for a veriety og genres. I have been playing for 2 years now and this guitar suits me very well. If it were stolen I would probably save up to get a better one. I love the price and the extras it comes with but I don't like the tuners on it. I wish it had locking tuners or soemthing.
Reliability & Durability — 8
I have beat the hell out of this guitar and it is still just the way I got it with the exception from a few scratches that are hardly noticable. The strap button is very reliable you won't have to worry about that. If your going to gig with this I suggest also bringing a backup guitar just in case.
Action, Fit & Finish — 7
This guitar was set up fine but like I said your probably going to want to lowering the action, there was no flaws when I got it.
Features — 7
I think this was made in 2003 but I'm not sure. The package includes: - F325 acoustic w/Die-Cast chrome tuners and spruce top - Gig bag - Digital tuner - Strap - Extra strings - Picks - Instructional DVD It's a pretty standard guitar 21 frets, solid top. The action was ok to begin with but I suggest lowering it yourself or taking it to a shop to get lowered. The tuners are decent but could be alot better it stays in tune while your playing but if you put it in a gig bag or something and carry it around and it will go out of tune fairly easy.
