Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreToronto (Bloor St.), Ontario
I was very pleased with the sound, playability, and the look of this guitar. Whoever there is one small but serious issue with the design. The tuning peg holes are only large enough for standard guitar strings. It comes with light strings which, for the lowest string, does not have enough tension. The factory low string has too little tension and sounds very "muddy". It simply needs a thicker low string but I cannot fit one in the hole of the tuning peg. May need new tuning pegs to be able to use this. I cannot understand how something like this was missed. The low string can only accept the lightest of gauges and right away one would see that a thicker string is needed, even in standard tuning. In it's present, stock from the factory form, this is not a usable instrument...unless you plan to not use the 8th string...
