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.

    Comments about Squier SP1 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

    I was very pleasantly surprised by this little guitar. Very decent construction, no gloppy glue inside, finish is quite well done, ok tuning machines, clean frets, binding done quite well, stays in tune. Pretty good volume. It looks and feels good. For a very small bodied all laminate guitar it sounds ok. Really. I don't know if I caught a fluke, but even the intonation is spot on. Didn't expect that. Very good deal at the Musician's Friends price.

      Comments about Squier SP1 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

      I love this little guitar, my 00015 Martin has been on the rack ever since I got this little gem. The short neck makes it easier to do the blues licks with a full barre chord and the trebly sound really punches thru the mix when recording. I get a really nice percussive rhythm sound and don't have to EG out the lows . Out of the box, I gave the truss rod half a turn and it was ready to go and it's been next to me on the couch ever since. The lonesome Martin was my go to guitar for 2 years now it's this little Squier; I love my Squier Telecaster too.

            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!

              Can't beat it for the money. I have a bunch of guitars but this is great to just leave out in the living room or by the bed.

                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:

                I bought this as a Christmas present for my grandson, now 11. It should be a good instrument for him to begin learning on. Playability is good enough for him to begin playing, where actual sound is not that important (no low end at all). Quality is OK, with some glue squeeze out on the bass side where the fingerboard is glued to the body. It is small, good for a child, but difficult for me to make certain barre chord shapes, and my hands aren't large. I'm hoping my grandson will enjoy may happy hours learning on this first guitar for him, until he's ready to move up to a serious instrument.

                    I was really amazed at how well built and good sounding this guitar is for the price and size. I got this for my young son. He is too little to play it yet so I play it for now. You would be hard pressed to find a guitar as nice as this for the price. I definitely recommend this guitar for couch jamming or for toting to campfires.
