Adam’s Take

This is a cool guitar under $200.  The old school “Rex” Parlor style guitars are awesome looking and have a unique vibe and tone that makes this more unique than most of the mass produced acoustic guitars that exist at this price point.

The Vintage look is accentuated throughout and the style design lends itself to creating a nice warm, bluesy vintage tone.  The short scale guitar is fairly small making it suitable for children and great if you want a travel guitar or just like the tone and style.

PROS
  • It's got that "Rex" Parlor vintage guitar look and sound without having to splurge on the true vintage price
  • Small scale is useful for children, people with small hands or having for travel situations
  • Has a cool lofi sound that has a vibe
CONS
  • If you don't realize how small this guitar is, you might be surprised and not necessarily happy about it.
  • What is a cool lofi sound to some is just not what others want out of an acoustic guitar. If you want the quintessential acoustic guitar tones, look elsewhere
