    After reading a few reviews prior to purchasing this guitar I felt the need to post my review.
    I had wanted to get a cheap beginners guitar for my son, not wanting to spend a fortune due to it being a first purchase and not knowing if "I want to learn the guitar" was a whim on not. I purchased this item and the only thing niggling my conscious was the feedback regarding delver and condition when received.
    I have to say I have nothing but positives to contribute.
    The guitar came a day earlier than anticipated and although only delivered on the packaging box (which could easily be addressed), it arrived undamaged and with all the specified extras.
    100% satisfaction from me and I only hope the boy enjoys his Xmas present comes the 25th! :-)

    guitar snobs may not tell you this is the best guitar in the world, as a beginner i don't know about that but i am perfectly happy with this instrument. Excellent value, delivered promptly, a d.v.d with your first six chords and practice pieces. Access to weekly lessons online. It didn't come with six strings as advertised but one 1e, an Allen key and instruction sheet on changing your strings. To make life easier i also bought a six pound digital clip on tuner and recommend other beginners do same. I would recommend this kit to anyone thinking about taking up guitar .

    This is my third purchase of an acoustic guitar in little over a year, and third time lucky! For the money this is a great package, the guitar itself looks great, sounds great, stays in tune, is comfortable to play on account of the rounded body and slim neck. The steel strings and metal machine heads were an added bonus, many more expensive acoustics are nylon strung and have plastic machine heads, and having had one of those inferior ones break within six weeks of purchase, this one so far is great quality. Yes it is made in China but for me, clearly better than the other high street retailer/catalogue company mass produced rubbish I've had the misfortune to own. The sunburst version is also very attractive to look at, a consideration should I decide to upgrade in the future. As a relative beginner I am very pleased with this guitar. The only sign that it is mass produced is a little bit of flaking of the varnish where the machine heads are screwed into the headstock, and a slight rough edge on the body. Otherwise highly recommended as a first guitar. Do not buy an Elevation guitar, buy one of these they are cheaper and better by miles! I've yet to try the free online lessons but they are a great addition to the overall package.

    I bought this guitar so that I could learn how to play. I found it cheap on Amazon Warehouse deals. It came without any of the accessories other than a guitar strap which didn't fit (seems someone returned their guitar with a different guitar strap), although Amazon gave me a partial refund to make up for that.

    The guitar itself was actually in good quality. The issue is, the strings that come with it are terrible. They WILL shred your fingers. It's not just because you're a beginner, the strings might as well have been coated with sandpaper.

    I purchased some new strings with the guitar because I read another comment stating the same, although I was doubtful. I bought Martin M170 Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings, and attached them to the guitar within a few days of buying it, and found they were 100x better on my fingers, and sounded better too.

    The next issue with this guitar, is how high the strings are. By that I mean there is possibly 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of space between the strings and the fretboard in the middle of the fretboard, getting worse towards the sound hole. A capo helped make the guitar more playable, as it brings the strings lower, making it much easier to press down the strings.

    This may be due to the previous fact that the strings are too high, but the guitar sounds poor without a capo on, even after tuning it many times, it just doesn't sound great. This has been a big problem with this guitar for me, I have to play most things with a capo on to make the guitar sound normal, which has problems of it's own, but it does help a lot.

    Overall, the guitar isn't very good, despite it coming from a big name (Martin Smith). It's great if you don't want to spend too much, but be prepared to fight with this guitar, it's a nightmare to learn with.

    HI All

    Well the heading tells it all, i am here to give a little advice about this guitar from the opinion of a first guitar buyer. Yes i have never owned a guitar before. Now before you stop reading, i spent a lot of time looking at guitars online. I looked everywhere from pro shops to ebay to here and other discount shopping sites.

    After much investigation i decided to go for this guitar, mainly for the price. Now if you look at the price of this you will see that for the almost exact same thing you can be paying upwards of £100 on some site. Yup amazing the difference in price, and although we all know some sites just take a chance that people will not price check i was not caught out this time.There is a reason this guitar which is a quality guitar is cheap. Please do not get me wrong i am not saying this guitar is worth £100. But it is worth the £65-£70 price on some sites. I would have purchased the Yamaha but for a first guitar price was important as much as the guitar being playable, and from a lot of reviews from pro guitarists or there girlfriend/boyfriends they almost all said this is a reasonable guitar as in sound and build quality.

    This is a great guitar...ONCE YOU REPLACE THE STRINGS !!!!!! Seriously this is an amazing price for a quality guitar and i suspect it is because they are being returned in there droves. When i first got mine i tuned it rather easily, but the g string sounded awful and the strings were a little corroded. but as it comes with a set of replacements i was happy to replace it and report the corroded strings for a replacement, only applied on Friday so am still waiting for a reply.

    The strings though will go on ebay as they are terrible.
