At least it is better value for money than choosing a Bellucci guitar.
Don't get it :) Please elaborate

Is it because of the bling? Yeah, Bellucci is worse in that respect!

I read some more, Bellucci is fraud. Why would you compare this guy to Bellucci. Is it really that bad?
Thanks

The sound quality of this recording is so bad that it's really hard to tell anything about the quality of the instrument. I have commented the video in this vein...

Don't worry, it was just his attempt at a little humour. There was no real comparison to Bellucci. Relax. Buy it and then report back your thoughts.

The 1st recording is much much better than the 2nd due to the fact that the guitar player is more skilled. Also the room acoustics and mics are different. Definitely did not care for the 2nd audio, but still did not like the voicing of the 1st.

I think all these videos do a great disservice to the luthier. But from what I gather 'between the lines' I'd rather think that the price is disproportionately high for the sound quality one could expect. I'm quite sure one can get much better guitars for half of it. Or even less. IMHO.

I was under impression that his guitars were handmade in Poland but I saw a website guitarsfromchina and they were listed there, so it got me confused.
