Gear4music Deluxe electro classical acoustic for under £60. Sounds OK to me barring my mistakes, for that price, no rhythm, skill or lessons what do you want!

Really imressed with this guitar. Like all new guitars it will take some time to bed in but this video was taken about half an hour after unboxing. I cannot believe the price either, i looked for classical pickups but nothing good under £100 pound so i was amazed to find this. Love it.

The guitar was well packaged when it arrived, and it arrived a day before the estimate, so full marks there.

The guitar itself is beautiful to look at. The general finish is amazing in an instrument in this price range. The cream coloured binding and purfling are well fitted, and give the guitar the impression of being much more expensive than it is.

The machine heads are gold coloured, with rather tacky looking pearlized buttons, but the tuning action is smooth and stable.

The solid Spruce top means that this instrument will sound better and better the more it is played. The tone is bright and clear, without suffering from the muffled sound so often found in budget guitars. The Sapele back and sides add to the overall sound.

The fretboard and bridge are both made from rosewood, which adds to the look and feel of the instrument.

The neck is nicely contoured for a classical guitar, and makes for easy access to the frets.

The joints appear to be well fitted, and the varnish is evenly applied.

On the minus side, the strings that are fitted to the guitar are terrible, so be prepared to fit a set of decent strings and allow time for them to bed in.

There were noticeable marks on some of the frets that show evidence of filing, and one or two of the frets also had dents. This doesn't alter the playability of the guitar, but it is unusual to see on a new instrument.

The ends of the frets are quite rough, and while it doesn't alter the sound of the guitar, it is something that could have been better.

I haven't tried the guitar through an amplifier yet, but I feel sure that the four band equalizer will perform quite well.

Overall, this is a fantastic instrument for the price. The pictures really don't do it justice. It looks and sounds like a guitar costing many times the price.

This has to be one of the best budget guitars available, so don't miss out!

I read the reviews before buying this guitar and found many of the comments relevant. Bearing in mind these are bashed out by (probably well underpaid) Chinese 'luthiers' the build quality is best described as solid. The guitar looks quite handsome, generally well finished and is value for money as supplied and once tuned played reasonably well and sounded fair. The strings were a little soft as was the tone. The neck is on the bulky side for my small hands, but will provide the challenge I need to strengthen the fingers! The only stupidly unnecessary fault (I felt) was the split 19th fret. This would have been better (and cheaper) if it was omitted altogether. The two uneven segments of fret were seriously sharp and badly finished around the sound hole. The fretboard had split and filler had been smeared around the area. The electrics worked OK but are not of top quality. The piezo element is encased in heatshrink sleeving. I left this intact, but wondered whether removing it would sharpen the amplified sound?
Anyway as a self confessed guitar 'fettler' I added some improvements/rectifications, as below:

1) Using a fine half round needle file the rough spots on the tuning pegs were lightly smoothed off.
2) The 19th fret ends were dressed and shaped to remove sharp edges, using the same file.
3) Using the same file the slots in the nut were filed down to give a clearance between the strings and the 1st fret of about 0.012"
(measured with a feeler gauge)*. This significantly improved the playing action on the first few frets.
4) Using fine emery paper the bridge was lightly sanded to remove the slightly rough unfinished surface.
5) The same piece of emery was lightly stroked longitudinally across the frets to remove the machined surface.

I was gob-smacked by the sheer prettiness of the guitar as I removed it from the box. After waiting for the instrument to warm to room temperature, I tuned up. First impressions were very good, with beautiful clear tone and plenty of projection. However, the guitar had a pronounced buzz from the 2nd string (B) when fretting on the 3rd fret, and further careful listening revealed with enthusiastic strumming, several other strings also buzzed when fretted at the 3rd fret.

I put a short steel straight-edge across the frets and this revealed that the 4th fret was decidedly high - especially toward the treble side of the fretboard. All frets looked correctly bedded, and the hump appears to be caused by a non-perfect fretboard.

I removed all strings and stoned the 4th fret, and then checked all the others, which although not perfect were entirely acceptable. After re-stringing, the guitar now sounds perfect. The sound through the pickup and a Trace Elliot Acoustic amp is nothing short of fantastic, with concert-level clarity with normal play, and funky grunge with more enthusiastic picking, and the volume advanced.

The remarks others have made about the strings are valid, slight, but distinct improvement in tone was achieved with a quality set of strings.

This is a lovely instrument, and I'm very pleased with it - now. But it does illustrate a very important point - if I'd been buying this in the shop, I would have haggled with the dealer for a discount due to it needing remedial set-up. Notwithstanding the above, even with the extra setup, the guitar is still a bargain.

If asked for advice I would say - buy it, but be prepared to do some setup work if yours is below standard. (or pay to have it done)
