My first guitar
The Dragon Guitarist, 10.11.2020
I bought this guitar at the beginning of the lockdown and started my guitarist journey with it, without any previous experience whatsoever. It was a very good decision.

For a beginner guitarist this is great. There is a lot of volume, the sound is clear and the finish is sturdy. The color stands out and it really incentivizes you to keep the instrument around, just to be in sync with its "vibe". The only drawback (and it's not directly related to the guitar, but to my level as a guitarist) were the strings, which were a bit too thick and I had to restring my guitar with thinner strings. In hindsight, this was also a good experience, as I got to see how the actual build is holding, how the strings are fixed, etc.

I use it to practice and to sing to small audiences. It really feels and plays like a "workhorse" and I can see myself playing it a few good years from now. Definitely recommend it!

Best deal for the money
Dynosius, 16.06.2020
Found this guitar and just said "I have to see for myself if this is too good to be true".
I was amazed when it came to how visually stunning it looks. It came perfectly set up and ready to play.
Great guitar for anyone who wants to pick up an affordable yet good quality instrument.

The pros:
- neck, action and fretboard all feel really good. No trouble or discomfort playing whatsoever
- lovely sound out of the box, tuners also feel great
- I like the fretboard material and it looks much more expensive than it really is
- you get pickguard stickers in both black, and red (patterned) so you can choose if you want to stick it there, or just leave it as it is without a pickguard
- there's a pretty decent sounding pickup with EQ controls on the top of the guitar, making this a very versatile instrument.

Cons:
- frets are kind of harsh, and I got a scratchy feeling when playing higher up on the neck (closer to the hole), but it's manageable and you get used to it
- the pickup gets noisy on higher output levels, and touching the metal part of my cable reduces the noise, making it seem like it's not grounded properly (if that's even a thing on pickups), but on mid/lower volume it's barely noticeable

All in all, this is a guitar that's meant for the people who want to get into playing whilst not breaking the bank, or for those who are curios what you can get for less than 100€ nowadays. Love it.

Finishing touch is on low key
Heretical, 10.02.2021
Its like a neck wasn't sanded properly before painting and frets were sharp and edgy.
Other then that a solid beginners guitar.
