No guitar is the same and I probably got the better end of the deal if you were to compare apples to apples. I've owned this guitar for over a month and hopefully I won't experience the minor problems such as the fret and the rattling in the future. The only problems I've had was tuning the strings after almost every song, but after a couple of days of breaking them in, they've manage to stay well in tune. it has an amazing tone for the price. Great guitar for beginners. It's easy to play and small enough for a child to learn. And I would also recommend it for advance players too because it's a good beater guitar and I wouldn't mind taking it on the road, and if it were to break I'd just buy another one!
It's just plain. But for the price what more could you ask for.
does it's job. It does everything it's needed to do at the fraction of the cost of a baby Taylor or mini Martin.

As the father of the guitar's owner, my eight-year-old son, I'm no expert, but this seems like an adequate beginner's guitar. Tone is fine. But the contacts started to rattle after around six months of playing and I just spent $50 to have them replaced with new Martin contacts (also requiring new strings). Depending on your level of seriousness, you might be better off spending another hundred or so on a better guitar.

Eh

By Jeremy D

from Englewood, Colorado

This is exactly what you expect out of a cheap guitar. At first, any beginner guitarist will love this. But after around six months of serious playing, they would rather use this ting as aflotation device. I have had this guitar for three years now, and I can't stand it! It has an extremely thin tone, even after trying like 20 different kinds of strings! On mine I had to file down the eighth fret, because when you play, it sounds like exactly like the ninth (unless you press down on it extremely hard.) The tunere wobble, which leads to problems with the guitar staying in tune. It won't stay in tune for more than a few hours. If you wan't a 3/4 size guitar, get the Martin version or the Baby Taylor. But for the same price I'm sure you could get a yamaha or washburn. Bottomline: After a short amount of playing, you will hate this guitar.

Its nice for the money

By Billy-1_9a9

from Connecticut

I bought this guitar for my daughter. She was killed in an auto accident in 2008 and I treasure it. The only issue is the tuning keys move easily and it needs to be tuned everytime I pick it up. I love the sound and when we sit around the table drinking and playing its the perfect little guitar.

Great Starter

This guitar is great for begginers and easy to play. I got this guitar for Christmas when I was 10 and learned most of the chords in 1 day its so easy to play. The only problem I had was a buzz in the frets about a year after I got it, but I got that fixed in no time. I still play it to day. So stop looking at and buy it.

Love this little guitar

I bought this guitar for my daughter when she was seven, it was a perfect for beginners. She has since moved on to a B.C Rich Warlock, but I find myself reaching for this little gem over my acoustic that I paid nearly six times as much.

AWESOME FOR THE MONEY

By Stu the lawyer

from Andover, MA

I PLAY THIS EVERY DAY. I have a 52 Gibson L48, a MIM Strat, Aria pro 2, and an old nylon string.I keep it handy and use it all the time and I do not worry about wear and tear. It sounds good enough, Plays good enough, hold its tune well enough and didn't cost a whole lot. a decent basic guitar. If it breaks, I will buy another.
