I ordered this jewel from Musician's Friend's Stupid Deal of the Day. I recieved it today, and I could not be happier with a guitar of this price. The action is nearly perfect. The construction is flawless and the finish is beautiful! I own 14 other guitars from Martins to Godins, to Epiphones, and have played for 50 years. This guitar is a pleasure to play and has a very nice sound for a small-bodied instrument.

I bought this believing I was going to receive a parlor size guitar. NOT!!! At best it is a 3/4 size guitar for beginning children. Good for ages 8 and up. That being said it is a very nice, well constructed, good workmanshipped guitar. One might use it on the road for practice. I bought it as a loaner for kids who did not have a guitar as I teach beginner to intermediate classes. If you are looking for a 3/4 guitar this is very good. I think the advertising is not right on it. I would recommend only as a beginner guitar.

    This is good as a travel or backpack guitar because it is small, but better than a backpack guitar.

      Comments about Squier SP1 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

      My brother who has been playing for 30 years, our lead guitarist came over, picked up this guitar that I bought for my ten year old son, after sitting with it for about an hour and a half, looked at us and said "This guitar is awesome!" He's right, it sings, and rings out, like it wants to please you with it's sound. Even when my son strums on it, the sound is always pleasing to your ears. No flaws, nice action, and stays in tune. Plays like a dream. A great blues guitar, or an excellent beginners guitar. We are thinking about buying another one, to amplify, so we can use it in our band.

        Comments about Squier SP1 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

        Overall a nice parlor guitar for a good price. Quite loud with a bit of growl to the original strings. Tuners are nice and consistent. Overall a very nice guitar for the price if you don't mind the smaller "parlor" size. If you're looking for the full guitar experience, I would go with the entry level Rogue acoustic for the same price or a little less, but if you're looking for something small, this is the one!

          Have had a number of Squires and have always been satisfied. I might not be as demanding as some, but this little guy is outstanding.

            Comments about Squier SP1 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

            Lucky enough to have the money when the Stupid deal came up. Small size makes it very comfortable and draws you into it. Action is just right for fretting or slide,(I play both). Hate to see it played down as a student guitar. Rich sound with warm highs and fuller bass than you would expect for its size. Every guitar has its own voice and if you like it then it's good for you. I am very happy with the instrument and the bang for buck. Nice finish, came well packed.

                Great guitar at this pricepoint. More than I expected.The negetives were minor.The string spacing at the nut was way off.I had a bone blank and made a new one.Replaced the plastic bridge pins with bone.The fret ends were a bit sharp but a few minutes with a needle file fixed them.IT has a great sound, plays well,looks good and begs to be picked up and played.I'm very happy with it.

                Surprisingly good

                By Kevin Foster

                from SoCal

                Comments about Squier SP1 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

                I bought this as a knock around guitar on an impulse purchase. I didn't really expect anything from it. And I've been pleasantly surprised. I have a few guitars. And I was about to spend $350 on a Washburn Parlor to round out my stable. But this one fills that "need". I find myself grabbing this one when I'm watching TV, or I get a melody in my head. It's durable, and holds tuning pretty well. The tone is surprisingly good, plenty of volume, and nice action. I play Blues solos on it because the strings are so bendable. Can't see getting more fun out of a guitar for so little money. Inexpensive and fun. That's more than I could ask of it.
                It's got the necessary parts. And the finish is nice. Not much to say here. It just works.
                Whatever you'd expect for a $100 guitar, this one far exceeds that.
                Can't go wrong at this price.

                i have this guitar i bought it used from a friend that had it for a long time and its still holding up nicely and it stays tuned for a good amount of time its a pretty small guitar tho so if you dont want a small guitar i wouldnt get this but for a beginner or a travel guitar or something with a tight budjet its a good guitar
