        Comments about Dean Playmate Avalanche J 3/4 Size Electric Guitar:

        Bought the Avalanche for my child and looked nice upon opening box. Neck a little bowed but action still ok on the top frets nice for childs play. Noticed the D'adarrio strings right off nice touch however when I went to tune the instrument would not tune. Stretched the strings some and no good would not tune. Not sure if intonation way off to tune but should not have received it like this. Not going to pay for a set up on a inexpensive guitar and still not be sure if thats the problem. From what I could hear pick ups sounded good while out of tune and played decent materials looked good. Did not like the tuning peg configuration for first 3 strings too close together to operate properly compared to other 3 but they seemed to turn ok. Did not want to take the chance with another Avalanche I traded for a Laguna LE 50 short scale will try that out for size.

        Nice little guitar

        By 

        from Virginia

        Comments about Dean Playmate Avalanche J 3/4 Size Electric Guitar:

        This guitar does what it's needed to do:
        - Stays in tune to keep my son from being frustrated.
        - Has a forgiving action to let the little guy make progress
        - Looks cool so he'll pick it up and play it (having Rocksmith helps a lot, too)

        I'm 100% happy with this guitar. I've even played it a lot.
