This seemed to be a decent purchase for my daughter who wanted to learn to play. Unfortunately, it had to be repaired with in one week which cost $15. The nut (which was made of plastic) broke while her teacher was helping her tune the guitar. So far, we haven't had any more problems and she is enjoying learning to play.
I bought one of these for my kids to take guitar classes. It is perfect for them and it sounds pretty good. The only issue is that it needs to be tuned fairly frequently...probably to be expected with something in this price range.
I LOVE GUITAR! ITS BEAUTIFUL AND MY SON LOVES IT.I BOUGHT IT FOR HIS BIRTHDAY/CHRISTMAS .I'D SAY IT IS AS DURABLE AS A GUITAR CAN GET. I STRONGLY RECCOMEND THAT ANY ONE WHO BUYS A GUITAR (ESPECIALLY FOR A CHILD),BUY A CASE FOR IT. I MADE THE MISSTAKE OF THINKING THE CASE AND THE GIG BAG WERE THE SAME THING BUT THEY'RE NOT. THE GIG BAG IS LIKE A NYLON CARRYING BAG AND THE CASE IS A HARD SHELL CASE. WELL ANYWAYS BACK TO THE GUITAR.LIKE I SAID IN MY TITLE "THIS IS NOT A TOY".MY SON IS SEVEN AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GREAT FOR HIM AND IT IS. BUT ITS TOO BIG. A 32-36 INCH WOULD BE BETTER FOR A YOUNGER CHILD.AND DEFINATELY BUY A TUNER.IT COMES WITH AN INSTRUCTIONAL DVD BUT AGAIN I STRONGLY RECCOMEND LOOKING INTO OTHER INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES. ALL AND ALL THIS ONE IS WONDERFUL. AND ONCE MY SON GROWS INTO IT IT WILL BE PERFECT.SO IF YOU HAVE A 6 OR 7 YEAR OLD, BUY IT FOR EM' ITS GREAT. HOPE THIS INFO HELPS.
This is a great set for someone starting to learn to play. Provides a great quality sound instrument at a very affordable price although you must keep in mind the size if you are buying it for small children. At first 41" was a little big for my 9 year old girl to which I thought 38" would've worked better for her and is available by Gibson also; but after a short amount of time she was able to handle it and now she grew enough to manage it. The DVD is ok but not enough, eventually I had to pay for online classes for my girl and now she plays quite well for her age and the amount of time she has put into it.
