I thought I could take the smell

J. Allen "j allen", amazon.com
30 December 2011
  • Summary: I thought I could take the smell. I couldn't. Otherwise it would be a decent deal and not bad sounding. The case is nice too, but everything smells like the Chinese rubber smell at Harbor Freight Tools. (sulfur?) I tried airing it out for a week with no success. If you have no sense of smell, get one.

Ordered twice 1x Good 2X Not so good

Gman, amazon.com
12 December 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this guitar and it came wrapped up nicely, but without the strap. I called and they immediately sent a replacement which came in an old box that had been damaged and taped up and still did not have the strap. I know they had a problem in the past with the straps smelling funny. Maybe someone removed them and never put new one's back in. Also, the 2nd guitars woodwork was not nearly as nice as the 1st, and the case was coming apart in the "hinge" area.

Smells like gasoline!

T. Harris, amazon.com
21 January 2011
  • Summary: I got this for a Christmas gift for my son who wanted something portable. It was perfect in that sense. I loved that it came with a small, form-fitted case. However, the strap sticks STRONGLY of gasoline (or some chemical) and it has permeated the case. Just opening it makes us nauseous. I wanted to love this product, but how they can ship something with that smells like that is beyond me. 5 stars for Amazon's return label policy. Back to Amazon it goes.

Sounds like a tinny autoharp!

S. Clark, amazon.com
14 July 2010
  • Summary: I just received this guitar and am so disappointed with the sound. It doesn't sound like a guitar--more like a tinny autoharp. It's unpleasant to my ear. And it's going back!

Schöner Koffer...

Volkri "volkri", amazon.de
29 January 2012
  • Summary: ...aber die Gitarre...5 Minuten bespielt, eingepackt, zurückgesandt. Ich habe ja schon wenig Klang erwartet, aber so etwas tue ich weder mir noch meinen Mithörern an. Die Gitarre ist nicht bundrein, unsauber verarbeitet (Klebereste, Binding unsauber, schwarze Schmierfingerabdrücke, kann man entfernen, wenn man will), im Ganzen schlechtes Schwingungsverhalten, Deadspots (mangelnde Tonentfaltung) in den höheren Lagen, Zigarrenkistenklang.
