OMG! I love this guitar. I got it on super sale and I couldn't be happier with the neck. Yes, I have modified it greatly with new saddles and pickups.....but the main place I interact is with the neck. And this sweet neck is endlessly playable. I have always purchased my guitars for the neck, knowing that I can swap out most of the other parts. I keep being amazed at the pleasure the Donner electric guitar necks provide.
I didn't order mine from Donnor directly.
I bought mine from an online auction as an Amazon return for $90.00. I will however be speaking about the guitar as if I had paid full price for it as most of you will be doing.
The wood and paint job are nearly flawless. I'm sure I could find something but frankly I dont care enough to do so. Mine did come without the trem arm and I have yet to buy one yet so I won't comment on using arm.
The neck is just a bit small for my liking but thats a personal thing. There isnt a thing wrong and it feels really good. it's much better than any Squier I've ever played. The skunk stripe looks fine and is seated great.
The trem block is small like on any other inexpensive guitar. If that matters to you replace it. I have no intention of doing so. The two point bridge and saddles are just fine. Nothing I can find wrong with them at all.
Full thickness body of solid alder. The neck is tight is the pocket and I have no problems at all.
Here is where this guitar really shines. The pickups. They are Alnico and they they sound like it. There is not a strat sound you would want that you won't be able to get out this guitar. Very Impressive. I feel no need to look elsewhere pups.
The main competition is the Squier Strastocaster Standard which retails for a lot more and doesnt feel or sound near as good.
Now I did have to do some work on this guitar to make it really playable.... I needed to give a quarter turn on the truss rod and the intonation was a few cents off per string. THATS IT. No nut filing. No neck shims. Just the rod ajusment , a few turns on the saddles and I did steel wool the frets which btw didnt have a single millimeter of sprot.
If your're looking here and on the fence about getting one pull the trigger.
As I said I paid $90.00 for mine but I's feel just as good if I have paid the $285.99 retail price for this guitar.
It's a Strat that sounds and plays as good as many Strats several times the price.
It would make a good moding platform and thats what I was thinking when I bought but the only thing I've changed or will change is the strings. I'm shocked they can offer this much guitar at this price. Well done Donnor.
The best low cost guitar I've purchased, and I've purchased quite a few! It was fine out of the box, great neck, sounded really good. I did a set up, and now it's as good as my favorite strat, which cost significantly more.
I tried to order a DJP-1000 while it was on promotion price but could not get it in red or black that is disappointing, maybe you will honor the promo price when it comes available since I've ordered several times from you. The other guitar has been really good for the price, the drum set I've had some issues with it. Call me & I'll tell you about it, But the WORST is the shipper (FED EX) they suck !!!!
Wanted to get a Strat with HSS configuration to play on the church worship team. So competitively priced compared to the big name brands, I was wondering about the quality but decided to pull the plug and get one. Very pleasantly surprised. Sounds great and play well right outside of the box. On a guitar at this price point I was expecting that it would need a lot of setup work to make it playable, but not at all. Changed the string and may only a few very minor tweaks. Compares well with much expensive guitars.
The Donner DST 400 is a decent “Beginner Guitar”. Pros: great sounding pickups, good tuners, coil tap, nice finish, great fret work.
Cons: The Low E string will not intonate. Don’t make the mistake of ordering this guitar if you want to play in tune. For a beginner it probably won’t matter too much, since they don’t have a trained ear to hear notes out of tune in relation to other notes when playing triad or four note chords. If you intend on becoming a good musician it won’t happen with this guitar. Two of the main things about being a good musician are being in tune and timing… “forget about it” , not gonna happen with this guitar. I contacted the company about returning the guitar, it says on their site 30 day return policy… The company contacted me and asked me for a video of the guitars intonation problem… I have a demanding job, wife and kids… after playing guitar 40 years I know how to intonate a guitar… I don’t need a demanding return policies where you have to send a video with forensic proof of intonation problems… Save your money, grief and time and buy a Squier or Epiphone guitar.
Guitar arrived on time. Guitar arrived without damage and works perfectly. Very happy with quality and happy with purchase.
I'm a newbie so I have no way of comparing it; but I like it a lot.
I have watched many reviews on this guitar on you tube....It motivated me to try out one and it's interesting. For the price I didn't expect much so wasn't disappointed when I found some dead spots on the fretboard. There was some leveling needed. I had to take off the strings and file the frets needing leveling. Also needed a trust rod adjustment. Too much relief.
After setups and intonation adjustments I tuned up ....finally can start enjoying playing it. Breaking in time....now plays better. It is very solid, easy neck to play especially if you have small hands. Sounds pretty nice.
I don't fall in love, I come to know the instrument...I am coming to like it more...it does sound pretty close to a strat. Just wish It was readjusted better. But for the price it's great!
This guitar far exceeded my expectations. I have several much more expensive guitars and this Donner VST400 stands right up to most of them. The neck feels great, the finish is gorgeous and the pups sound really good. The tuners seem to be ok so far but I'll probably switch them out for better ones at some point like I did with my Donner DLP400. This is truly an incredible value. The gig bag is decent, not great but decent and a lot better than most that are included with a guitar in this price range. The cable is surprisingly good and the strap is good as well. The only thing I had to do to this guitar was lower the action as it was a little high for my personal preference. Kudos to Donner for building such high quality instruments and making them so affordable. Great job Donner!!
I gave Donner another try. After buying an Ibanez Gio, I wanted to try for a more versatile sound, having heard so many positive reviews on YouTube, and on Amazon. I had purchase one a year ago from Amazon but immediately returned it because it wasn't the neck style I would choose. Its fingerboard takes adjusting that I wasn't really keen on doing at the time.
So This time I wanted to give them another try after so many good reviews "great guitar for the money" "veratile sound" etc....Ok lets try it out if not for solid workmanship, it has nice pickups, and a clear chimey sound like a strat kicked up a bit. I like that.
But here's whats is disappointing:
1. on the top e string on the 10th fret there is a dead spot when I bend the D note up a whole step to e. It absolutely goes dead. So now I need to take a chance by filing the fret above to fix the buzzing dead spot because of poor fretwork, quality control. If I was a beginner I may not have noticed it, but I am an experienced Guitar player for 40 years. Not a luthier, but I am learning how to save money by doing my frets.
2. The bridge saddles have screws that are too short to raise the stings to adjust them. If I go too high I run out of room and the screw falls out....ok so maybe the neck needs adjustment....back and forth I go trying to set it up.....It appears there is more setup on this than playing...big disappointment.
Just want to say if anyone buys this prepare for time to adjust it, fretwork, putting on new quality strings etc....
My biggest complaint is that won’t stay in tune. Furthermore, I emailed customer service several days ago and haven’t gotten any response.
I like the guitar. Needed some setup but is great for what I'm trying to do.
Guitar plays smoothly. Neck has a luscious satin feel. Once I had luthier do setup on guitar, plays like butter. Customer service is above par. Had a problem with setting my intonation , prompt responses from reps. even given time considerations( think based in China). Would definitely buy from again.
I am so happy I took a chance on this guitar. I have had it for weeks and can't stop playing it. Amazing instrument. Thank you Donner!
Right out of the box the DST400 was playable and the neck pickup sounded great. There was a rattle on the open E string. When I tried to raise the bridge sting saddle the screw legs were unstable and splayed out. I bought a set of solid metal saddles on Amazon for $17 and figured out how to install them. (I am not a guitar tech at all.) I adjusted all the string heights and the intonation. The gauge on the little card that comes with the guitar was useful for this. Out of the box the middle pickup sounded OK but not great and the humbucker sounded weak. I used the gauge (and a small Phillips head screwdriver) to adjust the height of all three pickups. Now all three sound very good and I continue to love the sound of the neck pickup. Despite the inadequate saddles, I found this guitar to be a terrific value for the price. I am very happy with it. On the basis of this experience, I ordered a "Hush" acoustic travel guitar. It is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I am hoping for another positive experience from Donner.
Good looking, reasonably priced guitar. Satisfying playability and excellent electronics complete the quality list.
This guitar is fantastic! I bought it because of several video reviews I saw of it, all were positive. It was packed very well inside a nice gig bag, inside a well padded box. Sounded great right out of the box. Even the stock strings sounded great. I love the pop in tremolo bar. Highly recommend this guitar over any other brand in this price range. This is -THE- best strat style guitar for the money. Plus you get a humbucker and a coil split switch. Get one!
I am a beginner at 61 years old and didn’t want to spend a lot on a guitar but this is a great starter guitar at a great price and I’m very happy with my purchase
Excellent service. Guitar is very nice.
Surpassed all my expectations. Awesome value. Plays better than my American Strat.
Jose Antonio P.
Delivered in time and without any flaws. Some TLC was needed on four frets. Excellent finish. So a very nice guitar with good price benefit ratio. Changed strings and maybe will change the HH to a vintage type model.

The guitar is surprisingly well built! It’s a really bang for the buck! The neck is fast and comfortable on my hands( I have short fingers ). The frets are rounded off, the action is low out of the box without any fretbuzz. The fretboard has no grittiness. Plus for the coil tap functionality and the 2 pt trem! I love this guitar and Donner’s customer service is fantastic!
It’s not the instrument, it’s how much you practice
Pleasantly surprised with this guitar out of the box .very comfortable to play. Only thing I did was put heavier gauge string on it..with the right rig, I would not hesitate to play this guitar on stage..if any other colors are available , I would most likely purchase another one
Excellent fit and finish. Absolutely best guitar for the money bar none.
Very beautiful guitar and stays in tune after using whammy bar very excellent for the price
I ordered a green/blue DST400 from Donner. The package arrived a few days later in excellent condition. In addition to the shipping box, the guitar was placed inside a decent gig bag--a nice touch for a budget guitar.
The build quality is excellent. The neck is very smooth and the fret ends are nicely polished. I also liked the paint job on the body.
I did find one problem: the nut was not properly cut and the low E string was at the very end of frets. I contacted Donner customer service and they gave me a partial refund to fix this problem. I replaced the original nut with a bone nut bought from Amazon and put on a new set of strings. After a few minor adjustments, the guitar feels and sounds great. The turner pegs are very good and I don't see any need to replace them.
This is my first Donner guitar and I am very impressed by its quality. For the price, it is hard to beat. Assuming the nut problem that I had is a rare oversight, I would recommend this guitar to beginner and intermediate players.
I’ve never liked strat style guitars but , thought I’d give the Donner seeker a try. Pleasantly surprised. It’s the middle pickup that always gives me trouble so I lowered it down out of the way of my pick. Technically converting it into a HS. of course with the coil split it still has quite a bit of variation.
The trem bar is a bit of an issue you might address at some point. The only way to keep it in the trem is to remove two springs and raise the trem up to get to the retention screw.
P.I.T.A. Now you can’t get it back out. Not cool. I prefer the F.R.style trem system. Perhaps you can incorporate it into a model in the future.
It’s a well made strat style guitar. I will do some updates on the trem system. Otherwise, it’s a great ax for the bucks.
I received my Donner DST-400 ST Electric Guitar in perfect condition. The guitar was double boxed in its gig-bag, with a cable, strap, and adjusting tools.
My first impression was, what a beautiful looking guitar this is, as the green color finish is a bit translucent, as you can see the wood grain. The neck has a satin finish which I love, as your hand just slides over it when playing. I plugged my new guitar into my Fender Mustang Amp, tuned it up and started to play it and get a feel for this new Donner Guitar. The sound from these pickups are excellent, and to have the ability to split the humbucker bridge pickup is fantastic. This Donner Guitar for the price is well worth it with all the added extras you get on this guitar. I will lower the action to my liking but beyond that, this guitar is perfect for me. I will purchase another guitar from Donner soon!
If anyone is looking for a guitar with loaded features at a reasonable price, this is the guitar to consider first. Excellent Guitar at a very reasonable price!
The DST-400 is the only HSS S-type guitar with a push-pull pot and alnico pickups in the $215 price point I found. While I have not had a Chinese Fender I believe you will pay twice as much for one to get similar quality. However the Fender will not have a translucent finish and probably will not have a humbucker pickup with a push-pull pot. Be sure to see Darrell Braun's review on youtube. FedEx shipping information was not as good as I expected but the guitar arrived in good condition.
It’s built very beautifully and plays very well. Underrated in my opinion!
I love this guitar! It was made with really good precision and was set up so well that there was nothing to adjust when I got it. The neck bow was just right and the intonation could not have been better. Best of all, it stays in tune, rock solid, even with heavy use of the whammy bar. I loosened the tremolo so it "floats" as shown in the photo, this way it goes both up and down in pitch. Still, I let go of the bar, and it snaps back into tune. It also has a versatile switch system for seven pickup combinations, and the translucent paint job is really pretty.
I was pleasantly pleased to see the quality of the build on this guitar and that it was tuned and ready to go...which is unusual for many. Stays in tune and the push pull is a welcome feature for changing tones. Overall a 100.
It's a good guitar with laurel fingerboard and alder body. Has the look and feel of the top major Stratocaster brands and in some cases, like the body and fret wood, pickups, electronics etc. much better! Donner has some good products lately in guitars and pedals too. The FST400 guitar pricing goes crazy sometimes - I saw it go from $199 to $269, then to $169 within a week! Choose your purchase timing wisely for the best deal.
Absolutely everything I expected and then some I went through and read all the reviews first before my purchase I'm glad I did every review was right spot on
This guitar sounds great right out of the box. The single coil pickups are hot and the poles are staggerd but not like Fender pickups giving this guitar a unique sound. Very impressive.
I love my new DST-400. Alder body, beautiful neck perfectly done, stunning finish, excellent hardware, very good pick ups. I think if you covered the name and asked someone to rate this guitar in terms of features and price it would fall well above the sub $200 price point it is currently at. I think it could compete with the Player's MIM Strat and certainy the best Squiers. Such a great instrument, and certainly not just a beginners instrument. I highly recommend and would have no problem gigging with this guitar while I leave the G&L at home. Grab one or two, you'll be glad you did.
This is an excellent entry level guitar. With C shape neck with 9.5 radius neck and vintage style tuner that hold tune, makes this an excellent guitar for beginners and intermediate players. Finish on guitar is comparable to other guitars in this price range.
Intonation on guitar for the E, A, and D strings is horrible and makes the guitar unplayable.
Tried intonating the low E string but ran out of adjustment room. Will try to remove the spring to get more room. I wonder if the strings might be part of the problem.
Been playing guitar for 50+ years. Have had just about every brand of high-end guitars. This one would be great for a beginner. For me, it just felt like a beginner guitar. The fret ends were sticking out. Not so much that they would cut you but they needed to be filed. It weighs 7.5 pounds, a tad heavy for a Strat. I wanted to have it be a project guitar, but I returned it because I would have to spend too much time and money to make it mine. Again, very close to keeping it but if you want it for a beginner, it is an excellent choice.
John M. Ivans
Very Nice No sharp edges. Neck and strings needs set up. Lost star for poor nut looked awful. I replaced it. Nut was overly glued and string notches were hacked up. pick ups work well.
Very nice guitar, quality is way above the price. I am thinking of trying the Tele style Donner looks like a great guitar also.
Great product when setup correctly. Hard to put down. Changed the neck and bridge to my preference.
This guitar is not just for beginners . It will satisfy much more advanced guitarists. Company responsive
As soon as I opened the box, I was immediately surprised how beautiful this guitar was. I’ve been playing on and off for about 17 years and have owned several different guitars. Got the price I paid, I say this guitar surpasses that. It sounds and feels great, both clean and with effects. Amazing job!
Amazing guitar. Setup was decent (needed minor tweaks but even expensive Gibson's need that). Sound is great and has a great feel. The look of the guitar is amazing. Really looks better than my other strat and sounds great too. Donner consistently blows me away, that's probably why I've spent over a grand on their products in one year lol. Do yourself a favor and your wallet one too and buy a Donner.
Was perfect for what I wanted. Everything worked as advertised. Plays very well.
Better than expected.
This is a pretty good guitar for the price!
Very nice fretboard and the frets are all smooth and filed nicely.
I highly recommend it!
Duane St John
It's ok nothing to brag about.
Playing this guitar for the last 3 days and I really love it. Bought 2 other bargain priced guitars and this one is my favorite.The guitar plays great and feels easy and comfortable. Most of the tones I'm getting sound great! I have Fender MIM HSS Player special with a Floyd Rose trem system, Love my Strat! Being totally honest, after I gave this Donner the tune up detailed below, I think I like the feel of the Donner better than my $900 Strat! Not comparing tone , just ease of how it plays and feels in my hand. So why don't I think this guitar is good for beginners even though its a great value even after spending additional money to get it right. Out of the box this guitar felt pretty bad. The finish is just okay. Listed as transparent Black, it appears just a low luster black until you look real close. You can just make out the wood grain through the black. could have used a bit more time on the buffing wheel as well. I'd say its a 3 out of 5 in the looks fit and finish department. The neck shape and satin finish on the back of the neck are great. The fret board was dry but a decent piece of Rose wood.Just needed a little lemon oil. It comes with a set of .009 -.042 D'Addario strings.... that had been sitting long enough to begin to rust. With a new set of strings I attempted to tune the guitar but it soon became apparent that the tuners were junk. If you're a beginner and don't know how decent tuners should feel or work, you might think you were doing something wrong. One of the tuners was slipping so bad it was almost unusable. So I ordered a new set of locking tuners for about $40. about the minimum for a usable set. The nut was cut okay but would need a little TLC. The fret work looked pretty good but there were about 4 frets that needed a bit of tapping down and even some leveling and minor re-crowning and a final polish Fret work is not difficult if you know how to do it and have the proper tools. This kind of Fret work runs about $75 or more if you need to pay someone to do it for you. The stock tremolo system (whammy bar) is pretty much junk. At first inspection its looks good and has a large trem block even though it appears to be some kind of pot metal , not brass or steel as it should be. After an hour of tweaking and adjustment I only managed to make marginal improvements in the feel but zero improvements in tuning stability even with new locking tuners and nut cut properly. There are many tremolo systems available and prices range from $20 to over $200 not including installation. Another task a beginner wouldn't want to attempt. I'm Hoping to find a suitable replacement in the $50 price range probably a Wilkinson. Until then I just don't use the whammy bar.or it will immediately go out of tune. Lastly the electronics. I'm actually very happy with the sound of the two single coil pickups and the humbucker in the bridge sounds okay clean to light couch tones. A high gain pedal and the tone and clarity suffers considerably. Changing pickups is another job I don't recommend a beginner attempt but the good news is the stock pickups are fine for a beginner as well as the stock electronics. I'm changing the bridge Humbucker to an EVH WG. At $169 new that pickup costs about what this guitar does. I got lucky and found an open box one for sale for $79. I'll most likely upgrade the pots and switch as well but they're working fine for now. I honestly think this guitar is a great value. With a total out of pocket of less than $500 I'll have a fantastic playing and sounding Strat type guitar. I just can't recommend it as a good beginner guitar unless you have a friend who is a guitar tech.
I was surprised at the quality of the guitar since the price was so low. Craftsmanship is very good comparable to an instrument over twice the price. I especially like the neck, the fret work is way better than some name brand guitars costing two to three times as much. Over all I am very pleased with this instrument. If you are looking for an entry level guitar I highly recommend Donner.
Amazing value. If every one of these is as nice as mine, you can't go wrong. Sounds and plays great. Needs better saddles, but these are easy to upgrade. Otherwise perfect.
This is really a good instrument. Better than some similar products I have also bought. The workmanship, sound, and feel are as good as any guitar I have seen anywhere. The only thing that is not premium on this DST-400 are the bridge saddles, but these are easy to upgrade.
Beginner, modeler, intermediate, you are simply not going to find a better guitar, period. Truly amazing value. Get it now before they raise the price. Playable out of the box, I spent 20 minutes setting up this guitar to play to my style. I will drop my favorite pickups in and polish the fret ends a bit more to make this play better than my stock $1600 guitar, (amateur luthier). I am simply in love with this guitar! Paint is green, dark green or blue depending on the lighting, pretty cool! Craftsmanship at this price is simply above reproach, period. I think they listened to the reviews and mine came with a bone, or at least a Tusq like nut. The bridge is at least as thick as my MIM. There is no tuning issues with the wammy once the strings break in. I was planning on changing the neck with an extra American tele neck I had, but rapidly changed my mind. The only thing I am going to change is the pickups for my Seymour Duncan’s. The ones that came with this guitar is going to my Classic Vintage build. They are that good. They market this as a vintage and it stacks up perfectly. I get excited every time I pull this guitar out of the bag. Seriously, get this guitar while its still $160. You will kick yourself if you don’t. The other manufacturers out there, this is the gold standard at this price point!!! I am not getting compensated for his review. I am just truly impressed. I wish I had a guitar like this 20 years ago when I started. Thank you Donner, please keep up the awesome work. Let’s get more people out there playing guitar!
Excellent DST-400 Strat, perfect setup right out of the box , just peel away clear plastic overlays on pick guard , plug in tremolo arm, tune to A440 pitch and go play gigs. This guitar has comparable setup as a 2018 Fender Pro Am Strat, and great tone and sustain- and great polished fret job. I prefer thicker necks, but this one is very playable, with quality Kluson vintage style tuners and rolled steel Bridge saddles - great guitar
I'm sure I would have given a better review but when received the whammy bar wasn't on . Was in package but unable to attach
It's a very good guitar alder body nice neck frets need a bit of work on the one I got can play this guitar live doesn't need new pickups tremolo works good just have to set it up properly tuner are not bad might be the only thing you have to replace the guit nut is plastic but is cut very well I will be replacing it with graphtec nut
I've played guitar for many years. But also stopped playing altogether for a lot of years. The Donner DST 400 is the first guitar I've looked at to ease back into playing. The quality and playability right out of the box are both very impressive. I've looked at "budget" Strat-style guitars from 20 (plus) years ago and this guitar puts them all to shame. Very good hardware. Excellent craftsmanship on neck and body. I'm more than happy with my purchase. I would have spent much more on the same guitar and been satisfied. You can't go wrong with the DST-400. Beginners and intermediate players alike will love this guitar.
First off , I think Donner is headed up with this guitar . I have owned many guitars in the past 40 years , and with an Alder body , and Laurel rosewood fingerboard , this guitar is an excellent choice for an adult beginner guitar , or for that matter , a great backup guitar . The only complaint I have is the plastic nut needs to be upgraded , it’s up to the end owner on the pickups , but for me , they are fine for now .
The push- pull tone control for bridge p/u coil - tapping is great . Also , the bridge pickup already having tone control is a plus .
This guitar punches above it's price point. The surprise for me was the selection on the third knob which turns the humbucker pickup into a single coil. Love the flexibility of tones. The frets were all smooth. The tuners hold tune quite well. This is the best strat style guitar for the money.
As a 1st time Donner buyer I was steered to this purchase by watching Youtube video reviews of Donner guitars. As a guitar player and mod freak for 50 years I buy guitars I never heard of and do mods. Out of the box the guitars finish was very good. Smooth thin neck. Average at best vintage machine heads that don't hold tune. Many fret ends sharp. Bridge saddles are poorly lined up. Strings do not go over the poles on the two single coil pickups. The nut is absolute garbage, even after graphite powder lube, which renders the tremolo useless. Pickups sound just fine. All these issues are easy fixes for me. Except the single coil pickups are just too wide to have the strings go over the poles correctly. Will put hot rails type replacements in, problem solved. Maybe $120.00 to fix all issues. Paid $189.00 for guitar. With fixes over $300.00 investment. You figure if it's worth the money.
I really like this guitar. It was set up nice, plays well, it's light ( for an electric) and is comfortable and sounds good ( for my unsophisticated ear ). The tuners are very light and feel cheap. Besides that, I am very happy with this purchase.
I think this is a quality instrument for any musician from beginner to advanced levels.
I have played guitar for over 40 years. I am just noting that for context to my opinion. That said, my opionion is just that. But maybe my observations can be helpful in someone deciding I love playing music I grew up with from Beatles to Police, U2....So I have an Ibanez AS-73 and wanted to get a Strat style guitar with that sound. PROS: This guitar had that Strat sound but not as clean. Pickups seemed muddy...but for the price, they were acceptable and there is versatility in sound with single/humbucker switching combination with the bridge pickup. Some commented on it staying in tune. I tried using a 10 gauge set (my preference- Dadarrio xl110-46) and for me It seemed to stay in tune...I wouldn't use this Whammy bar for Van Halen dives- its not a floyd rose-but it is ok for a little bending effects like vibrato etc...like country and western stuff... CONS: Neck is comfortable for smaller hands, my hands are too big...this neck very narrow...seemed harder to play for me so I returned it. Not the style neck I am used to or looking for. While it had a versatile sound, the Korean pickups were not that powerful and were noisy. But, again, considering the price point they were very good. The Electronic/switching seemed good... but sound was not to my liking. OVERALL OPINION: Solid workmanship, guitar looks great and feels well made. For me the sound and the Neck style didn't work But had I just begun Playing guitar as a beginner....Yeah this guitar is nice to start with!.
How can I turn down the volume ?
Just have to take time and follow use instructions!
Simple and cute
It's good, but the sound is not good quality as I expected.
good sound quality for the price
I bought this guitar for my 12 year old son for his birthday. I also bought the Donner headphone amplifier and connected the guitar to the sound bar. I was impressed by the quality of the guitar and its good sound. My son is a beginner, but he found it easy to use this guitar everyday. He is enjoying it.
Sound quality is not the best but for beginners its just fine
My daughter really liked her piano set up and enjoys playing it
I just opened the box up and it don't work
I don't understand
update: The customer service assistant explained how to use it, and it is now in normal use
One day living this life!
Perfect for a beginner
For the price, it is good for someone who wants to learn and not spend much.
Nice set up for a student. The sound isn’t as good as Casio brand, but it was inexpensive.
Looks and feels cheap for the price
Hasn’t stopped playing it since he received it. Definitely a great idea for students in the distance learning phases. Music class at home.
Very impressed on the solid weight on this product.
It has easy to use tunes.
Very beautiful guitar, for now is a collectors edition until I learn to play it.
It’s ok for beginners practicing placement of their hands or matching reading music to notes, but I wish I would’ve spent a bit more money and gotten something better quality.
The adaptor broke after only a few months and we're currently looking for a new one.
the product cant work. I contacted the manufacturer for support, like it says to on this site, and they sent me back to here where there is no one I can find to help resolve this. Pretty unsatisfied.
I bought this for my son as he wanted to learn, so I figured it makes more sense than letting him try a more expensive one lol.
I was shocked when I picked up this guitar for the first time, the neck has my favorite neck profile, a slim "C". To me it plays like my 1965 Fender Stratocaster. I love everything about this guitar. The pickups are full range, the tremolo works great. The setup is nice, no rough frets. The color is a beautiful translucent green with no obvious void fills. The weight is right on, not too heavy, not too light. Good tuners, nut, setup, controls, and finish. I am a 48 year player and I cannot believe I can get such a great guitar so inexpensively. I liked it so well that I bought a second one a different color and it is the equal of the first one I bought. These two will be my main guitars for when I gig. I always feel apprehensive when I take out a vintage guitar to play. I like it so well I may buy another!
I bought one just to see if was any good. I was greatly surprised, the neck has the perfect slim "C" shape that I love and is made out of Canadian Maple. The grain is running the correct direction, the frets were smooth and set correctly. The translucent color of the body shows the wood grain to be filler free. The pickups sound good, responsive, bright, and full of low tones. There is no hum or noise in the wiring and the controls work great. The Tremolo system was set perfectly as well as the setup. Nice tuners too! I liked it so well that I bought a second one. These are going to be my primary instruments when I play out and don't want to take out a vintage guitar. I am a 48 year player and I rarely see inexpensive instruments of such great quality.
I bought this model because the one I wanted was out of stock.
The unit is functional and sounds good. At the price range, I would say that it is a worthwhile purchase, and it would be better to have a manual.
Don’t know what experience others had but the first thing I checked, all keys are fine! Shipping was fast and it was all easy to setup.
For. Beginners sound is good .
Great for beginners and space limitations. It feels pretty good playing it and the sound quality is good for the price. A detailed user's manual with list of presets would be very helpful.
Where can I find the manual or how to use the different features?
