So, I grabbed one of these from Amazon last week after glowing reviews from @FenderGyrl and @Obsessed. I have to admit, their reviews were spot on. I've never been so impressed with a $169 guitar. It was playable right out of the box with the stock strings. I can't believe they are able to sell guitars this cheaply today. It has a decent acoustic tone and sounds great plugged in. It's nicely appointed. The tuners work. The wood grain shows through the finish. To be fair, it has a few finish blemishes, but I cannot complain given the cost of the instrument. I ordered some light gauge flats and a wooden bridge for it. I see that they are currently sold out on Amazon but if you can get your hands on one, I highly recommend it. I'm just keeping mine at the office to have something at work to jam on during lunch. I couldn't be happier.
