Nice rich tone. Soon out of tune.
on 10 March 2010
This is a well made guitar (china) and has a very nice rich tone.
I had previously purchased a 3/4 guitar which proved just a little to big for my 7 year old son, but this one sounds better (when in tune)and fits him just right.
As many others have mentioned, it will not stay in tune for long.
Originally I thought this was due to the normal stretching process that all new stings go through, but there is something else involved. It could be the machine heads are moving causing early loss of tuning.
The included tuning pipes are useless and investing in and electronic tuner is a necessity, you will need to tune it frequently.
Otherwise I would recommend this guitar for 6 to 10 year old's.
