    I actually have heard of this company. But i've only used their Plectrums. I dont know how good their guitars are. If it costs 6500/-, then it ought to be good. If you feel it isn't that good, then try your luck at returning it to the shop where you bought it. Thats all i can tell you.

    This is the wrong forum, moving it to geartalk.

    Never heard of this company, you should ask Jay about this.

    Comet.. The Made is Singapore brand.. Makes amazing Cheap guitars.. Wood comes directly for Kerala where they have a place to grow wood for this PURPOSE ONLY.. The only anti deforestation Company.. Also known for not wasting even one small chip of wood. If you bought the guitar with three singla coil pickups, its a nice one.. Anything less than that is entry level. Startting prices are around 6000. You didnt get TOTALLY RIPPED OFF.. If you bought the acoustic, You probably made a mistake cause Signatures and Hobners are way better.. Please tell me if the logo has a COMET written on it with a strip which looks like Saturn Ring?? As Tejas said your best bet is to return it..

    my guess is priya got that guitar from bhatia musicals... they're the guys i've seen who keep that brand, and in plenty.

    i did see it once at their shop, and it sounded pretty good to me... but then i've never laid my hands on a yamaha, so i can't really say!
