I have not owned a guitar for about a decade, so I thought I'd treat myself! I don't know which brands are the best or why, so I thought I'd settle for this "Lindo" make, which I haven't heard of before, but I liked the price, the look of the guitar and more importantly the extras package that you get with this purchase, and in all honesty, it DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!
It arrived in good condition, I've tuned it about 4 times using the supplied electronic tuner and it's fair to say the strings are holding their pitch now. I can't bring myself to watch the DVD yet, still traumatised from the time my mum bought me Burt Weedon's play along VHS!! Maybe they could bin the DVD off and replace it with a Capo in the extras pack.... Just a thought. This guitar is great, it's comfortable, smooth neck, low strings, Great sound, what more could you want for such a great price? - a capo?

This product is a great guitar for a beginner and intermediate level player. The guitar and kit came included with everything you need to start playing immediately. The guitar itself has the correct string height right out of the box. It is easy to play and the cutaway makes it very easy to play high notes on an acoustic. While plastic, the bridge saddle is compensated, which you normally only find on higher end guitars. The guitar has a crisp bright sound which resonates well. The frets were a little rough on the edges, but nothing that hindered playing. Overall, a good guitar at the right price.

Firstly, its only fair to point out that Lindo are offering a free set of strings for + reviews but nevertheless my review is genuine.
Perhaps its a mid life crisis thing but decided to have another go at learning guitar after not picking one up since being a teenager.
As a beginner I wasn't looking to spend too much but was wary of getting a very cheap guitar so opted to send about double what you can spend for some of the very cheapest ones. Have to say, after three weeks with this guitar I'm very happy with my purchase - its well made and has a nice action and sound which doesn't put beginners off. The extras are useful - can't say I've bothered with the DVD as there are so many good online resources these days. If you are looking for a guitar to start learning, you don't need to look further than this British company.
True to their word, Lindo sent out a set of strings within a couple of days of my review. Month on very happy with my purchase - I've not needed to retune now for about 2 weeks despite frequent use which is a good sign.

This product is great value , the guitar surpassed expectation for quality and sound. The additional items also did not disappoint ,the tuner is a world away from the ones that you used to blow and had to rely on the individual having a good ear. Not any more I would be happy recommending this package which would be a great start for any budding musician.

This is a great set for a beginner, and will last well into the budding guitarist's musical career. The guitar itself is beautifully finished, and the combination of that and the stand has made my teenage daughter tidy her room so it looks good! What more could you ask for. The package contains everything you need to get started including the stand, a decent instruction DVD, electronic tuner (although we are using an iPhone), case, spare strings and a good selection of plectrums. It was significantly cheaper than equivalent instruments from better known (to me) brands, and was very promptly and safely delivered. Finally, Lindo have a good selection of YouTube videos demonstrating their instruments which was a big help in us reaching a decision. All in all we are very pleased with it.

Brilliant guitar with great set of accessories - fast delivery with great packaging so all arrived in excellent condition and not damaged.
I am an adult, have not played a guitar in like ermmm 30 years and wanted an "all in one" kind of package - this one is perfect.
I had a bit of an issue with the tuner and contacted Lindo - they offered phone support which was not possible for me so they agreed to send a replacement.
Today I tried the tuner again and it works perfectly fine - by the way, what a great tuner..
Overall, brilliant buy at brilliant price and with brilliant service.

I love my guitar, it looks nice and more importantly sounds nice. I didn't really find the tuning device was helpful but this was not a problem as there are plenty of decent tuning apps available. I was slightly confused as the guitar only has one strap peg but, amazingly, there are people as confused as me out there who had asked the same question on Google and I was directed to a video on YouTube which showed me how to overcome this.

I have an electric guitar and wanted an acoustic. This one from Lindo has all the things I needed.. bag, picks, stand, strings, tuner, a helpful dvd as well. Guitar seems well made at the moment and the finish is excellent. The tone of the guitar is good as well. One on my mates has a more expensive yamaha acoustic and he thinks this sound's just as good if not better. A great priced package for people on a bit of a budget.

Bought this for my son's xmas present and I'm really pleased with my purchase.
Quality and sound is great, accessories are good.
Lindo rang me the day after my order had been placed and made me feel as though I was a long term, valued customer. I will be buying more products in the future from Lindo. Thanks for call Martin.

Niece wanted to learn guitar and this was a well priced all in one approach. She has since decided the guitar better serves her as an ornament but that is no fault of the product, which is very good and surprisingly rather cheap for what is provided.
