This reviewer had hers exchanged for another one because she did not like the “buzzing” sound that it made. Another reviewer also mentioned that the strings that it had also did not produce a good sound and recommended customers to have it exchanged. A customer also had an issue with the A string which forced him to strum it softly. Still yet another customer complained that he had expected more from the woodwork.
