The guitar is great, sounds great and all. Perfect size for my giant 8 year old! However the straps that come with the guitar hook to....... nothing? What is the point of this!!!!!!!! Am I supposed to hot glue the thing together? I bought this guitar because of the straps and accessories it came with. The case was also ripped upon arrival???? It wont hold anything because of the massive hole in the bottom - perfect addition just in case you want to lose all accessories that come with but dont work anyway. This is supposed to be from "Santa" so now I have to convince my son to give it back so I can exchange it somehow? Lastly there is random red permanent mark on the inside of the guitar that is driving me crazy to look at and some scuff marks and water marks? The guitar is fine so I would have ignored the minor scratches etc. if it wasnt for the terrible terrible no good very bad accessories. It came so close to being great buy, but fell so short. :/ Not a huge fan of this company and the exchange process is going to be horrific.
The first thing I noticed was that the strings were too far off the neck. requiring a considerable amount of effort to get the strings down to the frets. Hard enough for me - an experienced guitar picker - next to impossible for my 9 year old friend who wants to learn to play. Far worse was the inaccurate location of the frets. For example; The low E string (largest string) should provide an A note when pressed down on the fifth fret. It sounded a little off so I dug out my electronic guitar tuner. Sure enough - the E string on the fifth fret gave an A# (A sharp, which is slightly higher than the A). I did the same test on the second string which was tuned to a true A. Pressed down on the fifth fret, it should provide a D note. It provided a D# which I was expecting. Both these tests indicate that the fifth fret was too near the guitar body. Totally impossible to tune a guitar with this problem. Incidentally, my guitar was really pretty. Sometimes instruments are used for interior decorating and for that it would be excellent at a very low price. a
Do not let price fool you with this product.
I am a beginner guitarist who saw this cheap product as a means of learning how to play. Upon receiving the guitar, I saw how much of a mistake I had made. The guitar is very cheap, and the frets were scratched up with the paint already peeling. The strings are as little and cheap as they get, so I took the guitar to a music store to get new strings. The man looked at me with pity, as he said the guitar cannot even have different strings, for the neck is already stretched too far. This guitar also does not keep its tune the moment you play a chord of press down on a string. I was very excited about getting a guitar for such a cheap price, yet this product is not a true guitar that one can learn to play on. My recommendation is to find a pawn shop that will sell you a used, proper guitar for cheap. This guitar will most likely end up in the trash for many people.
I purchased this guitar for my 8-year-old daughter to begin her career as an acoustic rock star. ;) I wasn't sure about the quality given the price was so low. It's actually a pretty nice guitar and perfect for beginners. It comes with a gig bag (lightweight case) and that's fine, as well. A pick the size of Rhode Island is also provided. It gets the job done, but why it is so huge is a mystery to me. The provided tuner isn't really in tune, so I just tuned the guitar with my own tuner. The strap confuses me because there's only one strap button on the guitar, so I'm not sure how to connect it. The important thing is that the guitar is a great value for beginners, as you don't know if they're going to stick with it or try it and leave it behind like many kids do. I'd recommend it for sure.
My 15 yr old daughter is very happy with her beginners guitar very good price for beginners well worth the price.
