I received this guitar as a Christmas gift several years ago. I've played similarly priced guitars that don't sound nearly as good to me. It may just be a little "first guitar bias", but it's a great sounding beginner guitar, especially for the money.
This was my first full body guitar. I named him York, yes as in New York. I had big dreams (still do), and New York is a big place, so you can see where they correlate. I got him in 2011 for Christmas and I've been playing on him ever since then. I love playing on him because my fingers just glide over the fingerboard and the body isn't too bulky for me like a couple of the guitars that I've looked into. It has such a nice full sound and is easy on the ears for sure. 5 stars isn't enough for this guitar. Never had any issues or problems with him either.
