Pros

Guitarists playing a wide range of styles from flamenco, classical, jazz, blues and folk have praised this instrument in their customer reviews. It has been exceptionally well received for both its unplugged and plugged in tone.

This was reflected in Interactive Guitar Magazine's review that said, "While the GK Studio was designed to play Flamenco, in my opinion this instrument is a very versatile guitar, which can be used to play and record a variety of genres, including Folk, Brazilian music such as Bossa Nova, Samba, and fingerstyle in general. Even if all you wanted to do was just explore some different tones to expand your horizons, this would be a good choice. The low action and cut away makes this guitar great in terms of playability and ergonomics."

Cons

There were no consistent negatives reported about this guitar in customer or expert reviews.

Overall

In addition to being well loved by experienced flamenco and nylon string players, this guitar is also one that many people have successfully transitioned to from steel string acoustics.
