Let me start by saying this guitar is actually a pretty good deal. I am serious, 18 dollars for a full 6-string guitar the size of a ukulele? Awesome! I bought this for myself as a joke not really expecting much. I saw the low reviews, many of them being 1-star and was a bit hesitant, but seeing it was 10 dollars I decided to drop the money as I would not be losing too much. Many of the reviews complained that this was just a toy and not a real instrument, I beg to differ.
Now I play guitar (an electric and acoustic) and have been playing for the past 10 years. I am quite knowledgeable in the workings of a guitar and how to set it up. If you notice, many of the 1-star reviews state that this is a bad product because the strings broke and the replacement strings broke too. Let me start off by saying that this is totally expected. Even when buying a high-end guitar, many players if not all, replace the strings with ones they prefer for both sound, quality, and the how long the string will last. Saying that a string broke is not a reason to say this is a bad product. That is like saying a 5000 dollar Gibson guitar is rubbish because its strings broke. As soon as you get this guitar, replace the strings, I suggest with actual guitar strings than the rubbish wire they give. Might I recommend (I am not an affiliate of this company) D'addario Classical Nylon High-Tension Strings. Any type of high tension nylon string will be perfect for this size of guitar and will be easy on the guitar. Reviews have stated that the tuners can't not stay in tune at all, that is also a big lie. There are screws behind each tuner that can be tightened as to stay in tune. Also, THIS CAN HANDLE STANDARD TUNING, YOU NEED TO HAVE THE RIGHT STRINGS.

I knew it would be on the low end of quality but this is pointless. The strings will not stay tight enough to make any sound! Even after one or two "strums". This is just a waste of wood/time/space/ money.

UPDATE...I'M AN IDIOT.........so there were some screws that needed to be tightened....and even a big sticker on the back telling me so. Sounds great, happy with purchase:)

This was a perfect and inexpensive guitar for our 5 yr old daughter. This is only a cute toy, it is all wood, with "real" strings, does tune but the frets are not designed like a real guitar, and you can't play chords. BUT you can't expect for the price to receive more than a simple toy that will make smile your little one. If you are looking for a student or high quality guitar, this one is not a good choice. It is not going to be worthy of playing as an instrument. NOW, If you are looking for a pleasant surprise, this guitar will be a perfect gift for the little ones!! My daughter loves it and that makes me feel happy with my purchase.

I was a little worried about this purchase with little reviews and they were so so. All my son wanted for Christmas was a blue guitar and this fit the bill perfectly. I was very impressed with the look and build. It's a perfect introduction for a toddler ( 5 and under). So far so good, but if it doesn't hold up....nothing lost. It was inexpensive.

As long at you don't think you are buying a functioning guitar this thing is fine. It is a cute little thing (paint job is so so). My daughters like to goof around with it. The strings are more or less real strings, but the tuning pegs don't stay put so the strings don't stay tight enough to sound even remotely musical. Want a toy - go for it. Want an instrument - go elsewhere.

unfortunately, this thing is total junk. it looks great and initially sounds pretty good, but that's the best I can say about it.

the first thing we noticed is the bridge isn't glued in place, and our 2 year old instantly started sliding it around and right out from under the strings.

secondly, as I tried to tighten the strings just a little, so he could get any actual sound from them, one of the strings broke.

strings break all the time, but within an hour he'd gotten all the remaining 5 strings completely unwound.

the whole thing is so flimsily constructed, it's utter garbage.

I feel bad for the friend who bought it for us for our son's birthday. we're going to try to return it if we can.

My wife and I bought this for our 2 year old son as a gift based on the video review where the guitar is shown as being playable. I was also able to get our guitar to hold pitch and "play" but only because I am familiar with the basics of guitar setup and simple woodworking.

I followed the advice given in the video review to use hard tension nylon strings and find that while they hold pitch, the 3rd string is too loose compared to the others to make a good sound. Perhaps this will improve as the strings stretch, but experimenting with other strings may be worthwhile.

My procedure:
1. Remove all strings, tailpiece, nut and bridge.
2. File the headstock to create a level place to mount the nut. The gap between 1st fret and nut was particularly large and uneven on the guitar we received so I also had to trim the fingerboard with a utility knife to make a clean, straight edge at the top of the fingerboard.
3. Reattach nut. (I used wood glue)
4. Drill new hole to center tailpiece on body. Reattach tailpiece using the same screw.
5. Place bridge (I lightly glued it without too much concern for intonation; securing it was more important for a two year old in my mind).
6. Restring guitar, loosening and then tightening Phillips head screws on the tuning machines each time while adjusting pitch. It simply won't hold pitch without them cranked down but won't turn without them loose.

I ended up with a guitar that looks a little better and sounds a lot better than what I had to start. There are certainly many things "wrong" with it (uneven frets, bad string spacing, lousy intonation) but as a means to get our son involved in "playing" a guitar of his own (instead of one of mine...) we're pretty happy with it.
