Bought it for P7,990 (approx. $177.56) and I can say that it is worth it.
Sound vs Size It has a 23" scale and I AM SURPRISED on how big it sounds. Maybe it is because of the X Bracing or the Spruce Top, or because the body is as thick as a normal 3/4 guitar would. When you pluck the strings, you can really hear the wood vibrating, unlike other guitars that feels like plastic.
Action and Intonation
Being a small guitar, it has soft strings, but the default action is kind of high, that's why when you play it beyond the 7th fret, it sounds a little (almost not noticeable unless you have a clip tuner on) out of intonation. It has a truss rod though so you can still fix the action (or use sand paper on the bridge)
It only has one strap button on the bottom that's why you have to use a strap that has a shoe-lace-looking-thing on the other end.
FREE GIG BAG!
The Gig bag fits perfectly on the Samick Greg Bennett TT65. It is fully padded and has a backpack type strap and a handle for traveling purposes. It also has a pocket where I can fit my lyrics and chord sheets as well as my other stuff. They embroidered the Samick Logo (The cool circle with S) on the pocket, and it looks cool because it is Gold and the bag is black :)
Personally i'd be happier if it is in matte finish, but then again I think the Gloss coating adds up to the tone of this guitar that's why it's ok :)
This is a great guitar for all the travelers who wish to have a guitar with them during camps, etc, but doesn't want to spend much.
