Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreKanata, Ontario
Picked it up as a lark. Such a gaudy looking piece. Surprised me though; as it turns out to be an easy to play, well voiced little guitar. Bought it on the spot. Top quality fit and finish. It's a perfect instrument to have sitting in your living room (or parlour) for you to grab during commercials. Set up was perfect out of the box. The more I play it the more I like it! It's a tad expensive for what it is; thus the lower score. But don't underestimate it. This guitar would be quite at home in the studio. I'm totally convinced Elvis would have owned one, and had an outfit to match! +1 on fun factor. No doubt it will wear well, as the finish feels bullet proof. Time will tell.
