I'm an elementary music teacher and we decided to start a sixth grade guitar program so I order 28 Lyons guitars. The finish on all guitars was excellent. No damage to any because of shipping. The tuners are a little cheap as are the strings but they work. But at this price what do you expect. Being nylon strings it takes about a week of tuning once a day for the strings to start to stay in tune. We've been playing them for 3 weeks now and they stay in tune really well. They don't have the full sound of a Martin or Taylor guitar but for the price they sound good.

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:

      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).

            Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

            If you're even toying with the notion of buying a low cost classical guitar you needn't give it any more thought, The action is a bit high - it's a classical guitar, it's supposed to be. Won't stay in tune - Stretch the strings out, it maintains tune as one would expect.
            I use this instrument every day, am not at all disappointed. Changed strings to Pro Arte normal tension and the tone quality is as I would expect of any 'normal' price range guitar.

                  Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

                  Bought this guitar about six months ago and immediately found that I was pleased with it; however upon closer inspection there were noticeable imperfections in the finish and the action was way too high. As with other nylon string guitars, these strings did not hold their tune and had to be retuned constantly for the next couple of weeks. Eventually they held their intonation and thoughts of replacing them soon vanished. I also worked on lowering the action on the neck and after some trial and errors I have it where it's just about perfect. The sweet sound coming out of this very inexpensive guitar is something to behold. My brother has a very expensive Spanish made nylon string guitar and the sound is actually comparable to his. I laugh at him every time I mention the price I paid for mine. Despite all the work and retuning it is now actually a pretty decent guitar; probably my second favorite to pick up and play.

                  Comments about Lyons Classroom Guitar:

                  Take into account the positive reviews on this guitar are all written by beginners and others with low expectations. I was looking for a cheap nylon string guitar to supplement home acoustic recordings. This guitar looks terrible on close inspection and plays worse. The 2nd string tuning peg on mine is not straight and the string will not stay in tune. None of the other strings will stay in tune for more than 10 minutes. The sound is absolutely flat and muted. You would get a richer tone scratching your pick on sandpaper. Unless you're looking for a first guitar for an elementary school age student, avoid this guitar. If so, purchase the 3/4 size.
