I have one.........


Its a Gold series....cutaway



I dont like it much but I wanted a guitar asap. I hadnt played for about 10 years..and only had a real old beater that was terrible and wanted to start playing again.......I should have waited....a bit ..........but I live in the boonies.......and it was available.


I play in an open tuning......and use a slide a bit.


Anyway this Gold has poor to terrible intonation. I havent had it set up.

The action otherwise is fine.

The bass tone is why I bought it...but......the high end is way to tinning for my tastes.


For the price I paid........I could have got a much better guitar...had I not been so impatient.....:cry:


I have since played a Crafter, Cort, Epiphone, Aleverez and a couple others that were a helluvalot better for much less or around the same price.

Konas are intended to be sold by pawn shops. They're okay but not spectacular. All laminated. Depending on your price range you can probably do better. Bear in mind that a decent A/E will run $400 on up. A used Yamaha with an aftermarket pickup might be a better investment. How much are you planning to spend?
