Excellent guitar for the money. My previous guitar was a very cheap model - cost about £150 - and the difference in tone and build quality is staggering. The electronic controls for the guitar (amp / tuner) did not come with any instructions but I got the hang of it. I later discovered there are Fishman guides available online. Only blip is that the battery for the electonics does not last very long. I found out how to replace this via a Youtube clip.
