UTILIZATION

Very ergonomic, very comfortable neck,

The guitar could sound a bit louder...

I didn't try it out with an amp...

SOUNDS

Pleasant guitar to play jazz and blues, and also gypsy music

It reminds me too much of a folk guitar

The unplugged sound could be a bit louder

OVERALL OPINION

I tried it out at a store

It's a simple guitar with a good manufacturing quality. Very attractive price.

You can feel it's a good-quality instrument even though it's not expensive
