Samick guitars ?
While surfing guitar shops on line I uncovered a keep that carrys Samick guitars. They are made in Korea and some of the line is designed by Greg Bennett. Tbelow is an extensive line to pick from, nice appointments, and also resonable pricing. Anyone below have actually any endure through this line of guitars?

Earlier this year I bought a Samick solid mahogany/spruce ASDM dreview.For all solid woods, I was disappointed. It sounded exceptionally weak and also thin, also through new strings, and I made the decision to rerevolve it. Figured at the time it would certainly not open approximately any kind of excellent degree...I have heard the solid rosetimber version can be a lot better, based upon a evaluation on the net.Anymeans, my experience...

I played one of the Greg Bennett models in a local shop. While it was pretty enough, I was not impressed via the sound nor playcapacity.LC
I bought a solid height, laminate b&s to store at my parents to play when I visit. It"s a good guitar for the money. A little bit thin-sounding yet plays well best out of package.

I assumed the Greg Bennett variety were made in Indonesia.I think they are worth trying out. Like a lot of cheap, import guitars, some are a lot better than others.I"ve heard/played rather a couple of Samicks and also they selection from pretty great to rather negative.Try prior to you buy.

We have two of these at our church that a member bought and donated. They are dreadnaught shape, and also while I"m not certain around this, I"m pretty certain they have actually laminated tops.They are most likely great guitars to have actually as tools that sit about in the church music office all set for usage in Sunday institution and such because they don"t get any kind of treatment at all (in regards to anyone watching humidity in the winter) and they seem to hold up well.I"ve played them a few times, and I"ve heard them played. For fingerstyle (which is what I do) they seem to have actually a quite weak sound, though the setup and also intocountry is great (and also I suspect they have actually not been to a luthier for appropriate setup, however I might be wrong), and also playcapability is just fine (probably also good). In a quiet resonant room they are rather pleasant to play (e.g. while waiting for choir rehearsal to start), yet the tone is reasonably basic and also not incredibly solid.Strummed (which is what others perform with them - greatly they are supplied to acfirm singing in Sunday school or occasionally in church) they seem to organize their own OK, and also they serve that objective just fine as much as the music staff at the church are pertained to.Personally though, I would certainly not buy one of these unless the price was extremely very good and I was on a really tight budgain. Though I have not had the chance to attempt them out side by side with, say, a Seagull, my impressions of low-finish Seagulls that I have actually played in shops have constantly been excellent, while my impressions of these Samicks at church have not been so great (other than for playability).
