[Heads up: I am an utterly neophyte "guitarist" and have only owned it for several months.] The guitar is adequate. I have NOT encountered any prominently major issues regarding the tuners, fretboard, strings, etc. The only flaw I found were minor aesthetic blemishes, such as bumps/bubbles and scratches, on the finish (purchased on amazon). It is not a big deal to me. The guitar is light and very comfortable. No regrets and would recommend it to a fellow beginner on a tight budget.
