2.0 out of 5 stars Strap missing and not fit for purpose as is.
Cosmetically it looks fairly good but its not really made well enough to be stepping stone toy since the fret spacing is totally wrong for the neck length and saddle placement. if you can tune it to some semblance of guitar tuning with strings open, if you try to use the frets its intonation is horribly out! At best it will teach your child to like off tune, off key noise...

This review is from: New Classic 64cm Guitar Toys (Toy)
Cosmetically it looks fairly good but its not really made well enough to be stepping stone toy since the fret spacing is totally wrong for the neck length and saddle placement. if you can tune it to some semblance of guitar tuning with strings open, if you try to use the frets its intonation is horribly out! At best it will teach your child to like off tune, off key noise and probably eventually drive you mad hearing it unless you are tone deaf! The nut is hollow moulded soft plastic and leaves the strings around 1mm higher than they should be worsening the intonation errors, the tuning gear is so poorly made the shafts waggle around as they rotate so half a turn has almost no change in pitch while the other half a turn may change the pitch by two or more semitones the fret wires are lacquered and under that extremely rough. The saddle needs to be moved down away from the neck around an inch and quarter and the saddle lowered by almost a millimetre (don't go too far or the strings will no longer bear on the saddle itself.)

After correcting all the above faults it can be restrung and tuned in a guitaresque fashion but with the lower three strings tuned an octave higher than normal, functionally it then becomes a guitarlele. Same size and reentrant style tuning as a ukulele but where full guitar chord shapes work and resonate well in the small body.

If you want to try it yourself bottom E string should be the thickest wound string, A should be the Third thickest wound string should be the thicker plain string, G should be the second thickest wound string, B should be the thinnest wound string and top E should be the thinnest plain string. Tune the bottom three strings to twelfth fret of a normal guitars bottom three strings and the top three strings to the same notes as a normal guitars top three strings.
When it's tuned and intonation corrected it's surprisingly nice sounding and playable!

Supplied strings are 24w,22w,19w,17w,10p,8p with the spare being an 8p. The 10p is too short to use as the third string if the saddle is moved down the body the required 1.25 to 1.4 inches, at a push as proof of concept you could use the spare 8p string instead.

Since I knew I was going to be customising this to make it playable from the start, I bought a reduced priced used item, it arrived promptly but was missing the guitar strap. Amazon refused to send a replacement strap, and would not offer an exchange or a partial refund. their only offer was a refund and me returning the guitar. I suspect they would have then put it back on sale as a used item again regardless that it was incomplete. I declined their uncompromising offer since I knew I could make use of it as is and it would make sure no child is disappointed or gift giver embarrassed by the lack of strap.
