Korean version of the great American sister! Guitar "classic" type - nylon rope - with cutaway.
Piezo very basic, with just as basic preamp with volume and tone control (I redid my make a sauce), but does its job ... basic! 9v battery power.
Relatively pleasant and easy to play Channel; access to the latest cases much easier because of the cutaway.
The sound ...
Acoustic, no problem, sounds a bit "plastoc" but according to the ropes and where you play, there is little "fix" it. The body is also made of resin, that probably explains it. Nevertheless, the sound is warm enough.
Electro: ok, sounds even more plastic; I replaced the original preamp with a filter that greatly corrects this, and suddenly, the sound is more interesting.
Attention tends to go on a fast feedback! Be careful with the foot bath!
I prefer to play with sitting, finding standing with a strap frankly uncomfortable because of his bulging back!
It corresponds to what I was looking at heat and attack level (especially price): I play mostly Brazilian music and jazz above. With a little reverb is quite credible and enjoyable.
It is enough just octave and acute, despite a slight tendency to curl, but it may be that the houses frets have served their time (and I do not think they are high-quality)
I use it for a small 15aine years, and she did not let me! Just a mechanical (plastoc) changed and cracked varnish (just a feedback too powerful! But the body she did not flinch).
For the price first! This is a Korean version but do not be ashamed.
Cons: Korean ... what a finish ... a little "hard to" like some frets that feel passing on the edge of the handle (but not sharp or debilitating to play), the edging a little sloppy looking closely. Preamp and original ... a cat! Besides access to the battery! Unscrew the preamp body every time! But it also, I changed it!
Otherwise, game and level, it is quite correct, greatly used on stage for years.
I could not recommend it, it is no longer manufactured but at the time, report his / price unbeatable!
