OVERVIEW

Half-size guitar for learning or traveling.

The great nylon string 1/2 scale size acoustic guitars from the early part of the 20th century established the standards for most of the premium instruments built today. This included shapes, wood combinations, construction, and cosmetics. The truth is that they really did a fine job. The SCS6 acoustic really embraces that simple elegance: traditional tonewoods like basswood, nato mahogany and rosewood, superb craftsmanship and professional appointments, like a gloss finish and die-cast geared tuners in a traditional, smaller-sized classical body.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about San Mateo SCS6 1/2 Size Mini Classical Acoustic Guitar:

    Bought this guitar a few weeks before Christmas... Like the first Review I was shocked at the quality of this guitar... Truss rod on this cheap of a guitar, I just couldn't believe it... Love the color... Recommend this for any beginner more than any other guitar... But like the first Review this is a 3/4 guitar not a 1/2 but still plenty small for little kids... Buy it and you won't regret it...

      Comments about San Mateo SCS6 1/2 Size Mini Classical Acoustic Guitar:

      I'm a guitar teacher. I'm always looking for inexpensive guitars for my new students.This guitar is my new favorite. It is actually a 3/4 size classical guitar, not a half size. The scale is 23 inches. The finish is well done. The strings are an acceptable distance from the strings. I test intonation by by first hitting a harmonic at the 12th fret, then fretting at the 12 fret. Intonation is spot on to my ear. The guitar appears to have a truss rod in the neck which is adjustable inside the body. Most inexpensive classical guitars I've bought in the past didn't have truss rods.
