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.Read more ›
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:)
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.
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.
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.
