Brilliant device

Still learning. Would’ve been nice to get an Aussie mains plug option.

It's Not a Guitar,,it's a midi controller

It's not a toy ! But leaves 🍃 a lot to be desired in an instrument,, mind you the price point is reasonably appropriate for the product, and Koala were fantastic! ... How ever,, before I spent a considerable amount of time on setting up the instrument 1 ,,I was rather disappointed! But now that I have configured it for my style of playing and have changed my attitude towards my techniques, I am very happy to own my instrument 1

Strings!

It's a great learner string controller. Get something else for keys, but I've been having an excellent time with guitar synth patches.

There's still a few software configurability issues, like muting all notes when releasing the last string, that haven't been fixed in 6 years yet, and I've already managed to damage one of the bridge keys with a few days of normal playing.
