Despite some other reviews, i received the guitar on the first date of the estimated delivery.

Out of the box, it did smell a little like a chemical, but by the next day the smell was gone.

The guitar came with a Strap, a Pick, a set of strings, a harmonica, a pitch pipe, and a gig bag. However, i never got the eBook.

The strap is very cheap looking, and short, which doesn't surprise me considering the price of the whole set. The pick is, well it's a pick, nothing really special about it. The set of strings looks good, it comes with all six, although there's no easy distinction between which string being which. The harmonica is okay, it's bigger than i expected, but it works, i don't know much about harmonicas, so i can't really review that. The pitch pipe is in tune, although i doubt they make pitch pipes that don't play the right pitches. Finally, the gig bag is very thin, and the guitar fits snugly into the bag.

The guitar itself is a great quality sound-wise. No fret buzz, very clean and pretty-sounding. But when it comes to the physical features of the guitar, it has more flaws. It looks like it was spray painted black. The fret markers look like little dots made using a paintbrush and white paint. There are places where you can tell the paint dripped, and there's white on some parts of the fingerboard, and black splotches of paint closer to the body, on the fingerboard.

All in all, i think this guitar is worth every penny. It was made clear that there guitars are mass produced, which explains the physical properties lacking. But it's great for starters, and being a starter package, it's meant for beginning guitar players. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who has never picked a guitar up and wants to learn, as long as they don't mind the looks of the guitar.

Review is for the 38" Natural Dreadnought package. This guitar is NO TOY and is simply amazing! Tunes up well and has a very balanced, sweet tone! I have several guitars worth over $1000 each and this little guy will get his share of playing time. No fret buzz, easy to play, atonement is good, harmonics are in the right location, so all fret design factors are good. Since it is basically disposable price, I can take this guitar to the beach or camping and not worry about it (which is why I bought it).

I just wasnt expecting much for $30 delivered, and am grinning from ear to ear in amazement at what a value this is! I checked on UPS what it would cost me to ship back to CA and the cost is $17.11. That makes the real cost of the guitar $13!!! So the wholesale cost from China is what, $5? Strings are more than that. So how they can deliver a product that is actually a REAL playable guitar with good sound, I have no clue... I feel like I stole it. The little gig bag with zipper pocket, shoulder strap, and the friggin cardboard BOX it came in is worth $30... LOL! "OH, BTW... also incuded with the gig bag and strap, we throw in a FREE GUITAR".. LOL!

Funny, I just got home from my guitar repair guy where I spent $40 to have a bridge glued back on to a $25 Mexican border souvenir guitar. SO now I have $65 in an ugly guitar that sounds like a cheap toy compared to this $30 Crescent chinese guitar. Im keeping this in mind for my next White Elephant gift party, maybe get a pink cutaway!

Another thought. I sincerely think one could sell one of these guitars at a flea market or garage sale for $50 if you tuned it up and played it for customers. Maybe I will buy a lot of 100 and see what happens...

The guitar arrived very soon.

A strong smell of chemical something came out on the first day, so I have leave it untouched for 2 days.

The 3rd string was broken. Luckily they give a free set of string, so I could replace the 3rd string by myself.

No e-book.

The bag is OK.

Having sad that, considering the unbelievable low price, the guitar itself is not bad.

Got this for my 8 year old son for Christmas. He absolutely loved it. Hasn't had a lot of time to play it yet but my husband (who is a guitar player) tuned it for him and he started strumming immediately. We also got him some cool rock guitar song books so I'm sure he will be playing in no time. It's nice that it comes with the bag and extra strings because one of the strings broke when my husband was tuning it (my husband says it is common for strings to break and it happens all the time when he is playing so this is not a defect or knock on the quality). My husband also said that it will sound a little "twangy" for a little while until the strings are broken in. We almost bought a 30" guitar but I am glad we went with the bigger guitar because I think the 30" would have been too small for him and he is not a big child. He will be able to play this for much longer than if we had purchased the smaller guitar. Very good purchase for the price.

The shipping for this item even though I paid extra for 2 day shipping took a week and a half. When I got the product the packaging was iffy and was left on my porch in the rain. There were also item that were advertised that were not in the package. After a slow response from the company, I finally received the items 2 weeks later. All in all the product was fine considering the price but they need work on their customer service.
