Couldn't be happier with the purchase. Having played in my teen years, I was ready to pick Guitar up again at 35. I didn't want to spend a ton of money but I didn't want a toy either. I owned a Fender Squire Stratocaster in my younger years so I trusted the Fender name. At 100 bucks and free shipping, this seemed like the perfect medium. The guitar arrived ~3 business days after I ordered via Fedex. The size is absolutely perfect; I was expecting a much larger instrument being that it was classical, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually not massive at all. It was "just right". The finish is beautiful and the fret board is well crafted and smooth; however it does have that rosewood texture making it feel like a much more expensive instrument. The bag it comes with is also very well made. The strings are indeed nylon and the action is very manageable. You don't have to have a kung fu grip to play cords or notes. This is very clearly a well made, moderately priced instrument.
After tuning it up it sounds great and I am ready to start working through my training book.
Definitely recommend for entry level player that is serious but wants to start slowly and economically.
