I bought two, that says a lot about my opinion of the Guilele. I play it into a zoom G1 into a Roland Cube EX, all,battery powered. I like having a backup guitar, so,if a string breaks or other malfunction, I am ready to switch it out. This Guilele is well made for the price. The electronics are good. I like to fatten the sound with the Zoom and add effects. I can get the sound I want with it, and it plays easy. You could lower the action, but with my style of playing, I need the higher action to prevent string buzz. I use it for gigs playing for 3 hours at a time, to playing on the porch, to,playing in front of the TV. I have no complaints with this little guy. I do play in a different tuning and restrung the Guilele to accommodate that. So far I have not had to pull out the backup and I think that this Guilele will,prove to be very dependable.
