INEXPENSIVE! A little cheap in some areas but stands out in others. The Bad: My Guitar needed setting up completely. The truss rod needed adjusting, the plastic nut needed cutting deeper with an Exacto Razor Saw, the intonation was adjusted to the max of the saddles, frets on the neck needed polishing, and the tuners were not very good at all. Good guitar to practice set-up work on. The Good: Beautiful Guitar. Paint is perfect. Neck fits tight in its place. Electric Hardware is of minimal quality....BUT the pickup quality is exceptional. I will not change any electrical parts out because I am afraid it will change the tone that I really LOVE. The Best: Price counting shipping and tax was $49.03! Prices on Sawtooth Guitars change frequently so look for a good deal. My rating is NOT comparing this to a "custom shop" guitar but for the price I paid, I am happy. If I had paid $150 for this guitar, it would only get a 2 star rating. I would compare this to other $150 guitars which would not need so much effort getting it playable.
