We've had a set of 28 of these guitars for a school year now. They seem to be wearing well. They stay in tune pretty good. It took 1-2 weeks for the strings to stretch, since then they've been great. Even though the string are cheap we haven't broken any this year. The guitars sound good and the students love them. FYI the finger board and necks are wide, more in the classical guitar range. The action on the full size guitars is really high (how far you need to push the string down).

I would only recommend these guitars for the most stringent budget based purchases, and hope that somehow you land a nice guitar through the mail. Of the most recent 5 Lyons guitars we bought 2 of the 5 would be considered 'generally workable'.
I own & manage a large group of teaching studios. We have multiple Lyons guitars in use in the studios, You cannot place expectations and demands on a guitar in this price, because it would be unreasonable. On the positive side, the build quality in the last 5-10 years for guitars originating from China/Indonesia/Thailand etc has improved.
Lyons guitars have a very very broad range of quality control. Some guitars stay in tune and play not too badly. Other Lyons guitars like the most recent batch that arrived have very poor workmanship, with very poor intonation. The guitar face has knots in the wood, and airbrush finishing has been completely missed on certain areas of the guitar. Dried glue residue is common place around the guitar neck joint, body and headstock.
Again, it's tantamount to realize this is an inexpensive starter guitar. No problems, and no points deducted. But when a starter guitar fails to start in the first place, you really are handicapping your chances of success in playing guitar with an instrument that has substandard workmanship.

      Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

      I have been playing guitar for 20+ years (mainly steel string) and I wanted a nylon string again (it's been 15 years or so). I thought this guitar would be at least okay for a while. Wow, this guitar astonished me. It's made well, sounds great, and plays fantastically. I had read some reviews about the action being a bit high, but I think it is perfect. I purchased the full size and I am in a bit of shock of just how nice this guitar is. I would have expected to have to pay a lot more for a guitar of this quality. If you are looking for a classical guitar at a good price, I would definitely recommend this guitar over and over.

      Decent guitar for a good price

      Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

      Wanted a guitar for my daughter to start on. She's barely played. This is a very decent starter guitar, she got a tuning app on her I pad and has fun playing chords and tuning it. Holds a tune pretty well but you can tell that it's under 100 beans.

      Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar for a small 5 year old who wants to learn how to play. She was extremely excited at receiving it for Christmas. Of course her hands are small so she does not have the stretch but I'm sure she will figure it out.

        Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

        I purchased this for my Grandson for Christmas. He is only... 2? Well not for another 5 months but, is there a time in anyone's life where it's too early to expose them to the magic of a musical instrument? I was surprised on how well made this little guitar was made and the overall bargain which allowed me to purchase the 3 year protection plan. The total was under 80... How could I go wrong?

        It's a good guitar for beginners but the strings, being nylon, stretch easily.

        Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

        It's low price gives you a playable guitar, but dings/scratches and poor finishing details make it a guitar that cannot be sold to students.
