Keep in mind this is a 45 dollar starter guitar.We bought this for my girlfriends 5 year old grandson.Honestly, given the price, I wasn't expecting much more than a toy.However, after putting some better strings on this I was blown away at the playability, neck action and overall sound.. I've been playing guitar 40 year and play professionally and I was impressed.Granted, this is not a Taylor or a Martin, this is a 45 dollar beginners guitar and I spent a solid hour playing it without any issues... Actually really quite fun and easy to play!The one suggestion I will make is that you will want to take the stock strings off right away and replace them with something better... I recommend D'Addario .012-.053 strings for better results.Its important to note, that each and every guitar has its own personality, from the lower end all the way up to the professional end in any price range.2 identical guitars can come from the same assembly line and one may sound amazing and the other may sound terrible... Therefore, I can only speak from my experience with this particular guitar and I must say Im impressed with the one I received.
I'm 50, and decided "Ya know, I'm gonna learn to play guitar." And I must say, for the proce point, great start. After two weeks, I know a whole 2 chords (not the guitars fault). Still learning to hold the neck well as I don't have long hands. All I can say is try something once. Enjoy.
Ordered this for myself today because it was the cheapest Guitar I saw on here. It'll arrive either tomorrow or a couple days after. Hopefully it's good for me to begin with. I will come back to this review when the Guitar arrives.Forgot to come back and review it again back on March 26th, 2021 when it arrived. Two days after I ordered it, but I'll review it now on May 5th, 2021 it definitely is a good guitar. It may be cheap but it works well.
Good guitar for kids just starting off. My only complaint was I ordered a blue one and a red one. I got 2 black guitars. The little tuner that comes with them is nice. The screen turns green when it's at the right note which is convenient enough that my kids could tune them in themselves.
I bought the guitar out of pure curiosity. I stumbled upon this package while looking for a guitar tuner and guitar strings. To my surprise, the guitar is actually playable almost straight out of the box. The finish was rathe decent for the price. it is not a full size guitar and it is not a 3/4 size kid’s guitar either. Instead, it is a 7/8 size guitar that’s good for travel and it will fit a smaller adult perfectly.The frets on the guitar are lower than usual but still very functional. I was expecting to see some rough edges on the frets but they were all very smooth. I was prepared to find at least one dead fret on the guitar but all notes were playable! Fret buzz is a very common problem on budget guitars. I only found 2 notes with minimal fret buzz and that’s really impressive for any guitar under $150. The frets on the guitar were definitely not smooth. Some light buffing with Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser (the one people used to clean pots and pans) took care of the problem easily.DO NOT use the strings provided because the guitars definitely wasn’t designed to handle the tension from steel core acoustic guitar strings! Acoustic guitars used a different style tuning machine and a different style bridge. The neck of an acoustic guitar usually have a steel truss rod built in too. This is a classical guitar from head to toe and using the acoustic guitar strings provided will only cause MANY unnecessary problems!The tone of the guitar lacked resonance and projection due to its smaller size and the materials used. However, it still sound fairly decent which was far beyond my expectations for guitars at this price range. The sound is fairly clean and warm. You could improve the sound quality by using high tension nylon core classical guitar strings. High tension guitar strings will sound louder and brighter (at the cost of less sustain). Maybe this is the reason why the seller/importer elected to use steel core acoustic guitar strings at the cost of significantly shorter usable life and potential tuning problems.The tuning machine on the guitar will do their job. However, 2 of them need their screws hand tightened before they will function properly. Normally a new guitar needs to break in before they would stay in tune. Good guitars will break in within 2 hours and cheaper guitars could take 2-3 days. The guitar I received will go out of tune every 10-15min before I tighten the loose screws on the tuning machine. After the screws were tightened, the guitar will need to be re-tuned on a daily basis for 5 straight days. It took a whole week for the guitar to finally break in and stay in tune. Once the guitar broke in, it held its tune much better than expected.The tuner it came with worked nicely, The gig bag was not padded and offered no protection for the guitar. But at least it will help keep the dust off. The strap was cheap but functional. The picks seemed very nice and comparable to Fender picks. The pitch pipe was horrible but fun to play with. 5 out of 6 notes were way off! The note for the 1st string was a little high but at least it was close enough to be functional. Once you got a string in tune, you could use that string to tune the rest. I think every beginner should learn how to tune a guitar by ear.The only complaint I got for this guitar is that the frets weren't marked at the neck. New players will be playing blind until after they got used to it. A very minor problem that could be solved easily.
