I wish this was my first guitar. These guitars are really well made for being an inexpensive, "beginner" guitar. The necks have a finish and feel of a guitar three times the price. Other features like "aged" pick-up covers, pickguards and knobs or Tortoise Shell pickguards like on this model really dress these entry level guitars up. And of course, these are very playable - perfect for any level of player. Lots of great reviews of Tagima guitars on YouTube too for more information.
