Buzzing sound
flamenco1234 21.02.2020
Pros:
The guitar is very comfortable thanks to a good build and low string action. Great for fast picado or tremolo. Sound is mostly good (see below).

Cons:
Unfortunately the sound is way too metalic and buzzing when playing rasgueado (strumming) especially if you play low tension strings with a capo (if you notice Ben Woods never seems to use one when he plays). Other than that the sound is good but for a guitar of this price overall I'm rather disappointed, it's not a versatile guitar and I'm considering returning it.
UPDATE: The sound is much better with high tension strings since it increases the action of the guitar. However there's a horrible buzzing sound when playing certain chords with a capo on the 2nd fret. I tried replacing the strings, using different capo models and lightly adjusting the truss rod to no avail. I'm very disappointed since everything else is fine. I could probably have it fixed in a luthier but for this price I expect the sound to be flawless.
