I was skeptical after reading all of the reviews about the quality of this product. I figured for the price it would at least be worth a shot, and if it was as "bad" as others were saying then I was out very little money... Here are my thoughts and I hope this helps everyone who is considering buying this guitar for a child that is not sure if they want to learn to play or not. I would rather spend minimal $$ on a chance rather than a larger investment on a name brand guitar.

When I gave the guitar to my 7 year old who wants to "learn to play like Daddy", she just about fell over. She didn't care that it was not a Taylor Grand Concert or another name brand, she had a guitar. I read alot about the comments stating that the guitar could not be tuned, and being a guitar enthusiast I felt differently. Here is a tip, yes if you try to do a standard tuning on the guitar, it will bow the neck backwards causing it to seem impossible to tune, however if you tune it down an octave you get several benefits. 1) the strings are easier to press which is vital for young hands just learning to play chords 2) the tension on the neck is minimal causing it not to bow and then the tuning works just fine. 3) you have a very happy child who thinks the world of you.

I will not say buyer beware, because for the price this is a good buy. If you want your child to be the next Joe Satriani and high quality is what you believe is important in a 1st guitar then you shouldn't buy this one. On the other hand, if you have intelligence you realize that you can make a minimal investment to offer your child the opportunity to learn the art of music and as they advance then you can go to your local guitar retailer and pay the higher price for the name brand guitar.

I would have to start by saying that this is not the best quality guitar available, as the finish and machines are not the best around, but it does play well and my 14 year old daughter is enjoying learning on it. I recommend buying a good set of strings to go with your purchase of this guitar as the ones that come with it are very light and snapped within the first two weeks. The new strings we put on sound much better and hold a tune much longer than the originals. Overall, you tend to get what you pay for, but it has held up well and remains playable with the abuse my daughter has issued.

This was a gift for my daughter to start to learn to play, and she loves it! It fits well in her lap, and though the case is kind of crappy, the guitar itself works very well for her. She loved the stickers that came with it, and even though we will be getting her a new guitar strap later on, this one works okay for right now. Its not something I expect her to be playing in thirty years, but it is a great starter piece for a kid.

This is a great guitar if you have a child who is interested in playing. Alot better quality for the price. I checked at our Local-Walmart and there was nothing comparible at all for the price... It was a Birthday Present for our 8 year old daughter and she loves it!

The guitar arrived on time via UPS. I wasn't home when it was delivered (it was at the apartment door).

The cardboard case was damaged and the guitar had a 1-2 inch scratch on the side of the neck. I filed no claim because the instrument:

1. remains in tune,

2. has excellent (unexpected) resonance,

3. neck is straight, and,

4. I am going to convert it into a resonator.

It is about 38" long, slightly less than standard.

Even if I wasn't about to make the conversion, I highly recommend the guitar, particularily because to the surprisingly rich sound. It also works well for bottleneck slide

If I could have found a broken, usable guitar for the conversion, I'd leave the $29.99 as is because it is certainly worth the price. I sorta hate to cut it how (but it just occured to me that it will sound very good as a resonator also.

Okay, so I read a lot of the reviews, and it sounds like some people had manufacturing problems? I don't know, but my guitar came to me in good condition. There are a few problems like:
1) It's not perfect, duh. You hear these people complaining about little nicks in the wood under the paint.. It's a $10.00 guitar, not a Taylor.
2) Everyone was right, you DEFINITELY have to replace the strings. They're worthless. Someone suggested getting nylons? No. If you want your fingers to callus so that you can actually play guitar- you're going to need to buy steels. If it's for a little child, nylons should be fine, but if you're some college kid like me that just wanted a cheap guitar to play in their dorm- steels, steels, steels.
3) The accessories the guitar come with are all pretty.. lame. They gave me a bass pick? Haha, like thanks a lot for the bass pick and the acoustic guitar... The "soft, gig" bag is a cheaply made gym bag in the shape of a guitar. Actually, my gym bag is of WAY better quality.. it's just too small for a guitar. The extra set of strings are still as bogus as the first, and the only real thing worth having is the tuning pipe, but there are easier ways to tune these anyway.
There are some upsides, like:
1) You only paid $10 for it. And for what you're paying for, it's worth having a guitar around.
2) It doesn't stayed tuned for the LONGEST time, so you get plenty of practice in tuning it, especially if you're learning to tune by ear. (I think this is a plus for beginners... If you turn out to be a decent guitarist one day but still need mummy to tune it for you, that's a problem!)
3) This product that I received is not total crap. Some people complained about there's being "un-tunable"... Mine tunes just fine.
