Chinese-made, which is not necessarily pejorative .. but here, though.

not too ugly to watch, as it does not hand over, wood crate, micro indigent, inept mechanical ..

Is what I would do this choice? In principle no, but in the meantime I have redone with an oud to 100 euros that I farted in literally hands on first use (plus I got negative feedback on Ebay because I complained. .) In short, when one is con ..
