Customer Reviews

I had the same problem on all strings.
Brian O
For twenty some odd dollars I certainly wasn't expecting anything remotely close to sub-par, at least as far as guitars are concerned.
R. Hartung III
The smaller size is ideal for little hands and the other benefit is the ease of carrying from place to place.

I did a lot of looking around and settled in on this guitar for my daughter this Christmas. Seems my research payed off as this came quickly and as advertised and most importantly my daughter loved it. I was worried about the quality from reading reviews on other sites with guitars for this age and price range but the quality is excellent. If your looking for a great guitar for your little one and you don't want to break the bank, look no more, this is the one that you want.

This is a great guitar for children to learn on. It is small enough so small hands can still control the strings. My Grand-daughter is enjoying it very much.This is an excellent learning experience for her.

the lauren guitars are knowed to be really good, and that's why i bought this one. i thought i was getting a good deal online, since my local store had a lauren guitar (a solid, natural color one) for the same price, but it didnt come with a gig bag. Well, when i got it, it wasnt wraped or boxed well at all.. no pading or anything! i took a peek to makesure nothing was damaged, and it loked o.k. so i left it in the box till xmas (for about three weeks). well, apperently it was damaged! the inside of the bridge (forgot what its called) was damaged, and my local music shop said it would cost more to fix, than to buy a new one! that just pist me off! i didnt know i was supposed to fill out a warrenty card with in a few days of purchase, either.. so now its not covered under warrenty! everytime it plays, it has a bussing sound comeing from the G string, thanks to the part that's broken! i recomend buying it at a local music shop, and not risk the poor shipping! plus, if u buy it at a music shop, they usually warenty their merchandise!

good luck!

This is a nice sounding guitar. Although it comes with a pitch pipe, there are no instructions on how to use it or even which pipe should tune which string. If I hadn't already had some musical background, I would still be at a loss on tuning it. However, the guitar seems pretty well constructed (I've seen worse) and the color really got my child excited to play it. I would recommend buying some type of teaching tool when you purchase the instrument because it doesn't come with anything.

My 9 year old bought this guitar with her christmas money last year. She has been taking lessons for 9 months now and it has been a wonderful guitar. One review said you get what you pay for and I feel we have gotten decent instrument that has recieved a few nicks and scrapes as she learns to care for her instrument. In a a year or two we will replace it with a larger size and a step up in quality. I highly reccommend this guitar for a child/ family that is new to music. Great value for a child instrument.

Color Name: Metallic Black Verified Purchase
I bought this guitar for my 8 year old daughter for Christmas so she could have her own instrument to learn to play her favorite Taylor Swift songs. I have been playing bass guitar for over 20 years and had a few full size guitars lying around that were just a little too big for her to handle.

Out of the package, the guitar seemed OK, but one of the strings was bent / kinked right between the hole and the bridge.
I bought new D'Addario light strings and started setting up the guitar...I was extemely dismayed that I had a real hard time keeping the guitar in tune for more than a few strums.
I was even more dismayed to find out that I had the top 2 strings (E & A) tuned by hitting the E-5th fret and open A simultaneously, but was way out of tune (~1/4 to 1/2 step) when I played the E octave on the A string (7th fret). I had the same problem on all strings.

Bottom line - this would be fine if you just need an instrument for decoration, but I would not suggest as a learning guitar.
Why would you subject your child to the frustration of learning to play on an instrument that does not play or stay in tune?
They will have enough of a challenge learning the basics, building their skills, and staying motivated and focused long enough to make progress.

I am now looking at instruments at the local music stores to try to recover the Christmas joy of her getting a guitar to fulfill her musical dreams.

Color Name: Metallic Black
I ordered the "Lauren" 30 inch Guitar Package as a joke gift for my girlfriend, who shares the name of the manufacturer. For twenty some odd dollars I certainly wasn't expecting anything remotely close to sub-par, at least as far as guitars are concerned. But what came in the mail really wasn't too bad.

The tuners are cheap but they hold tune, mostly, unless you bend too far. The body, as well as the head and neck, feel like pine, which is fine because I wasn't expecting koa or something nice. The paint job isn't too bad, except for the few nicks I found, which were easily covered with black sharpie. All of the physical attributes really don't mean a thing if it doesn't sound good, and well... I'm laughing... It's really not that bad! The "Lauren" has a tinny sound, which is to be expected from a small guitar with a smaller resonator. I'd never record anything serious with it but for a "beat around" travel-sized guitar I'm not that concerned.

The less than sturdy bag that comes with this tiny guitar is okay with the exception of a few small holes. Really though, this bag is nothing more than a glorified purse made with inferior materials for a guitar of similar construction. The overall assembly of the gig bag, not that you'd ever take this to a gig unless you wanted to break it or sound like you were playing out of a piezoelectric speaker, is mostly poor but I'll go with okay just because it looks alright.

The rest of the package comes with a few picks with the "Lauren" logo printed on them and a pitch pipe tuner which I refuse to put my mouth on, just on principle.

Overall, I was expecting a turd. What I found was a polished turd so, if you're like me and just want to buy one for a gag, then by all means, this is the way to do it, just don't expect much.
