I have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old (35 years) and I found this guitar to be very good quality. Sound is nice (not tinny, depends on the strings you use), action is low, and it is not strictly a starter guitar (as some are saying), and plays like a full sized guitar (I have a 3/4 size guitar and it is too small). If you are a professional musician or a guitar snob, then perhaps you should pass on this guitar and buy a martin, gibson, or a taylor guitar. If you are someone like me, a long time player who likes to do it solo or jamming with friends, then this guitar is a great value and I would recommend.

This is a great value. This guitar looks great and is very well made. The sound is good, not great. It is somewhat weak sounding and tinny. This is in comparison to other low and mid priced guitars. It seems to be holding tune well, although the strings are still new and stretching. This is not a toy. Really crappy (toy) guitars can sell for similar prices or even more. You probably will not be able to get a better sounding guitar in this price range.

I think the folk size is better than 3/4 size for young teens and small adults. Dreadnought size can be uncomfortable to play, especially for beginners. Be careful if you want a case (especially a hard case). Bring the guitar with you to to check the fit. The size and shape of this guitar may make it slightly more difficult to find the right case. Don't buy one that is too big, the case should fit very snug.

I highly recommend this guitar for this price range.

Although Oscar Schmidt is not the line of quality guitars it once was (read on) this particular model, for the price, is not a bad guitar, especially for a beginner: make no mistake though, this is built to be a budget guitar, and doesn't have much in line of adjustments/setup outside of the truss rod that can be made to improve the quality of its sound/action/etc...however, for 76 plus shipping, this isn't a bad internet buy esp. if you're looking for a student/learner guitar or just a cheap acoustic to bang on... Also note that when a guitar is labeled as a "folk" guitar it is usually a very general term that merely refers to its size (meaning it is larger than a 3/4 size but smaller than a dreadnought), and doesn't mean much else in terms of its craftsmanship, especially when its used to describe a budget guitar like this.

Regarding my opening comment, Oscar Schmidt is now owned by the same company that currently owns Washburn - the company is US Music Corporation. They bought both brand names around the same time (circa 2000 - the exact year is virtually impossible to find via the web) from Fretted Industries, and while they continued to make good guitars under the Washburn name, they made the once highly respectable Oscar Schmidt into a budget line guitar. Any Oscar Schmidts pre circa 2000 are of a higher quality, both Fretted Industry made ('79 to circa 2000) as well as vintage ones owned by the company of origin. Read my buyers guide on both Oscar Schmidt and Washburn by searching the "So You'd like to" Buyer Guides under "So you'd like to own an Oscar Schmidt"

This is a nice little guitar. I bought it in green and it is absolutely beautiful! Nice for beginners--the action is not too high, but most axe shops will do a new guitar set up for you where they check the neck and adjust the action if needed. You may find that you want to upgrade the strings after a while, but overall a nice little guitar that will do the job. A classical guitar case fits this one well. I found the dreadnaught gig bag too big. I have 2 Oscar Schmidt guitars and like them both very much!
