The GST II guitar is equipped with rather standard-looking, unbranded, sealed, chrome tuning machines. All of them work fine without any excess slack or difficulty turning the pegs. I am pleased to report that the chunky neck has proven to be one of the most stable that I have tested. The tuning often needs no adjustment from one day to the next, and when it does it is usually very little. After letting the BLO cure for over a week, the fretboard feels better than it did.
This electric guitar throws in incredible value to quickly become a guitar that grabs your attention. It’s one of Blood Red Shoes’ most popular songs, and it just wouldn’t work on her Tele or SG. “If anything happens to this guitar I just won’t be able to play that song,” she says. It’s completely trash but I love it so much.””
The tuners are cheap, as to be expected, and quickly lose tuning stability as you bend notes and bash chords. Your purchases also help protect forests, including trees traditionally used to make instruments. Cheap pickups are going to lack clarity and probably have a generally muddy sound. It’s possible you like high action and over 2mm won’t bother you. Anyway, I’m not a tyrant with regards to action but I like mine in the vicinity of 1.5mm. These fractions of a millimeter seem insignificant, but it really does improve playability when the action is set below 2mm.
The enclosed tuners and precision-cut string nut allow for optimal string pressure and reduce unwanted noise. The three single-coil pickups provide you with that legendary bright, vintage sound you are looking for. This guitar also features a classic and simple control layout; A 5-way switch switch, two tone knobs and one volume knob. The 6-string saddle bridge is a classic and simple design that has not only proven to be both stable and durable, but is also easy to adjust and provides great resonance for the strings.

Learning guitar can improve the appreciation of music art and cultivate one’s quality. Do you still want to buy ties, sweaters, pajama pants, scarves and other uninspired gifts this Christmas? Christian Anderson really feels about these gifts in the video above and you won’t think so anymore. So, what’s the most anticipated Christmas gift?
After I hit it with 320 grit for ~5 minutes it was nice. If I had a higher grit I’d go higher, but 320 was a drastic enough improvement that I’m happy enough with it now. I bought this Glarry GTL with my own money, which was a total of $91.19, including shipping.
I failed to mention this in the video review, but my Glarry GTL arrived with the string height over 2mm at the 12th fret. To measure the string height I used my FretGuru gauge and then I used the included allen wrench to bring down the string height at the saddle. Although the pickups are cheap you can get an okay dirty blues sound out of them. If you’re in a hurry, here’s the accompanying video review of the Glarry GTL guitar. This written review is a companion to the video so reading and watching is best. My partner loves it and its great quality for the value.
I was surprised how well this guitar was built and sounded pretty good, but I decided to make changes. My contact at Glarry noted that the Canadian Rock maple provides “Higher wood density, clearer sound” vs the “maple” neck on the original GST guitars. With only this GST II I am unable to speak to the comparison.
