The Finnish is awesome.
The action and playability are excellent. Feels like the real deal.
The sound is unreal. All of the accessories are great. For the price, you can't beat it. All systems are go!
Great Product....Quick Ship

Very good guitar
Tuners and bridge pickup could be better. Otherwise fairly happy with purchase.
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the beginner kit package. Not only did it come with a nice, entry level guitar, but it came with all the extras you need to get started, and then some.
The accessories included a mini practice amp, a set of picks with different stiffness, a second set of strings, a tuner, a strap, a couple of Alan wrenches, a cable, a gig bag and a capo.
The gig bag is padded and has "backpack" style straps. and the mini amp is no half stack, but it gives a variety of sounds and has a built-in distortion setting.
On to the guitar...There were only two color choices at the time I ordered, blue or white. The paint job on the body was good. It comes with 3 pick-ups and a 5 position switch and a screw in tremolo. The neck was straight and feels nice, it has good action, with no string buzzing when played. The tuning pegs are decent and the headstock looks average.
While this is no higher end guitar, it is a VERY NICE beginner/starter guitar and with the package it comes with, it's a solid win in my opinion.
This is our second Donner guitar, we also have their acoustic. Just like that one, this one is very nicely made. It was ordered for a beginner, and I don't know anything about guitars, but I do know quality when I see and feel it. This is a good quality guitar.
When it's played, it sounds wonderful! My son started playing it as soon as he opened. He plugged it into his existing amp, but it did come with a small one. In addition, this guitar came with everything needed to for anyone to get started playing.
My son said it's very comfortable to hold and play. In addition to sounding and feeling good, it's really a great looking guitar. Very impressive and the blue color is sort of a retro shade that gives it that old time rock and roll feeling. Extremely nice! My son and I are both very impressed with Donner, and his guitar teacher is as well.

I'm on the record as being a fan of Donner's budget gear. After a series of good experiences, including purchasing their Les Paul-style budget guitar, they've converted me.
I primarily play strat-style electrics, so I was eager to check this one out. Both of mine are showing their age, so my hope was that this would be good enough for me to retire one of the others.
First, this is shipped inside a thin gig bag, which is then inside a tight shipping box. That box was inside a second box, so I felt pretty good about shipping conditions.
It was pretty close to ready to go out of the box. Took just a few minutes to tune it, the intonation sounded pretty good right out of the box, and it comes with an array of starter gear (see below). I was playing it 10 minutes after opening it.
The sound was nice coming out of my Marshall amp, with a clean tone similar to my Epiphone strat and decent crunch with the gain cranked up. The pickups provide VERY different tones when switching through the seven available settings. Switching between single-soil and humbuckers isn't super intuitive, and I worry about the knob breaking with time, but I like having the option. Nice to have such a range to choose from. (The tone knobs are very responsive, too.) You can really dial in the tone you like.
Speaking of the pickup switch, the switch feels good and solid, but the volume and tone knobs do not. They're surprisingly thin plastic, even for a budget guitar. I feel like it I squeezed hard enough, I could break one with my fingers.
I guess they traded the good knobs for better tuning keys, because these tuning keys are MUCH better than the ones of my LP-style Donner. On that one, the keys slip and don't "catch" easily, making tuning a slower process than it needs to be. (They're honestly the worst part of that guitar.) These, on the other hand, are a step up. They're still not as precise as a more expensive set, but they are a marked improvement and don't take nearly as much fiddling.
The craftsmanship is overall very good for the price range, easily better than most. Looks and feels well made all around. Frets are good. The action is good as well, and though I prefer a slightly thinner neck, this still felt good.
One issue: I am getting a little string buzz on the E string in the upper frets, but it's inconsistent and only when I strum just right, so I'm undecided if I'm going to need to adjust the truss rod or not. It may just because it was freshly set up and still needs time to "settle." Like I said, it's intermittent at worst.
I like the icy blue finish, too. Aesthetically, this is a nice looking guitar.
As with other Donner guitars I've gotten, this one comes with a fully array of gear to get you started. This includes a strap, tuner, picks, capo, instrument cable, and strings. It also comes with an itty bitty mini amp. While you're not likely to gig or busk with it, it's perfectly fine for practicing, especially in a setting like an apartment. It even supports battery power for portability and has decent built-in distortion. On its own it's no big deal, not something you're likely to spend money on, but as a pack-in? Pretty awesome to get something like this in the box.
Basically, everything you need to get started is right in the box.
Overall, this is a pretty great sub-200 guitar that has its share of flaws, but none that are egregious or unusual for the price range. It's another winner from Donner, as far as I'm concerned. Know what you're getting and judge it for it's price and you are likely to be happy with this. Great choice for a first time electric or for someone on a budget.
Hey Donner, can you guys make an affordable electric sitar, please? I've always wanted one, but they're too expensive. Hah!
First of all, the polar white is beautiful. The neck is smooth and fits my somewhat short fingers well. The guitar is easy to tune. I was amazed that the tiny amp has better sound quality than I figured it would. I also hooked it up to my friend's Fender Frontman amp and the sound coming from this guitar was amazing! Donner really has its act together!
Got this for our daughter and she started off playing it very well... great size for her and very well made.... this is great for beginners and well worth the money... highly recommend this
