With its thinline 3" thick body, the Jameson 900 Series acoustic electric guitar is easier to carry around and less prone to feedback.

But because of its shallower body, acoustic projection and volume is expected to be lower than its bigger counterparts.

For plugging in, it has a passive pickup and basic volume and tone control.

Finally, this guitar comes in various colors, in case you have a particular aesthetic preference.

Overall response is generally positive, mostly because of its affordable price tag. As expected, many of the reviews are from beginners, or from the relatives that bought the guitar for them. Interestingly, there are some experienced guitar players who appreciate its comfortable thinline body shape and playability. There are also a number of users who are surprised at how good the tuners keep the strings in tune, which is a common problem for guitars in this price range. The guitar's amplified sound also gets some praise.


On the downside, there are complaints about the need to file the fretwires, while others find the action a bit on the high side.
