Manufacturer's Description

The Martin Smith 1/2 size Classical guitar is an ideal first guitar for the young player. Producing a good tone the guitar is slightly bigger than other 1/2 size guitars making this most definitely not a toy! As a rough guide this would suit an average sized child between 5 and 8 years old . Fitted with nylon strings the beginner will find it far easier to hold down and strum the strings than with a steel strung guitar. The guitar has reliable tuning machine heads so once the strings have settled in the tuning is stable. Along with the guitar is included a guitar strap and carry bag. You also get access to free online guitar lessons to help you get started playing. There is even a virtual online guitar tuner to help you keep the guitar in tune (requires your computer to have a microphone and speakers). The guitar is available in a range of funky high gloss colours.

After spending HOURS and DAYS and WEEKS trawling the internet looking for a guitar for my 6 year old son, I finally decided to go with this one. I could only find one other review for this guitar which put me off. My son hasn't seen it yet but I've had it out a few times to keep retuning it while the strings settle down and I have to say that I am very impressed. Each time I get it out the tuning is getting more stable and will be fine once the strings have stretched. The half size will be perfect for him as I hadn't been sure between this and a 3/4 size and I can play it okay too so will last him for a few years. (he's an average sized 6 year old)It makes a lovely sound for a nylon stringed guitar and I am so pleased with my purchase. I'm not a very good guitarist and can only strum basic chords but I do play other instruments so wanted a proper instrument not a toy in case my son does want to learn rather than just play with it which this definitely is. The guitar looks fab (we have red) and the strap and case are also great additions.

Solidly built and a nice size for kids up to about 9 or 10 I'd say.
I bought this for my 6 yr old after having to return a Stagg guitar that cost me twice as much because it was awful.
Most importantly, the notes on the key 2nd and 3rd frets are nicely in tune. (The Stagg could not play a chord in tune despite strings being in tune because of poor fret placement.)
Nylon strings here and a low action make it very easy for little fingers to form chords.
Throw in a nice strap and an acceptable little bag and I'm feeling very chuffed with this purchase indeed!

Bought this for my 6 year old and its a Cracking wee guitar. As others have said, the top 3 strings take a few days re-tuning before they settle down, but I have just played a Steve Earle song on it there and it sounds really really nice. I have a top end Yamaha acoustic and I can vouch that this has a nice warm tone which belies the price tag by a considerable margin. The fret board is easy on the fingers as well, which is great for little learners. Great buy.

After buying my daughter a toy shop guitar that looked like this to learn on, it proved to be worthless (luckily we got our money back). I ordered this one hoping for a vast improvement, and I was not let down. It's no pro, so can't be judged on the same merits as a proper guitar, especially given the price. However, what you do get is a decent little learner than is easy to tune and holds it. For her it has been spot on and will give her the grounding needed. If she wants to play seriously in a couple of years, we upgrade. If not, we've not wasted a lot of money and still have a very nice instrument for someone else to benefit from.

Bought for my 5 year old son for Christmas and I thought that I had better check it out before the day. Very nicely made and finished. The only problem with this (and other nylon stringed acoustic guitars) is that it won't stay in tune initially. I tuned it up, played a couple of chords and it was out of tune. This may be off-putting to a beginner or the uninitiated but all it took was a bit of string stretching, tuning and playing in between, until it holds its tune. Don’t let this put you off - as I say any acoustic will be like it, and with not much effort this one is so much better than other ones I have tried.

Beautiful guitar! Given 4 stars as little girl hasn't used it yet but she will be very happy with this! Very fast delivery! Strap is lovely colour and the bag, although the bag has a very strong smell!

I am not sure where all the other positive reviews came from as the guitar i ordered for my sons birthday was of terrible quality! scuff marks, drips of paint on the ornament pattern and just generally looked very cheap. I appreciate it's not top quality instrument but a basic level of quality control should be present, especially on Prime orders and sadly this just was not the case. Very disapointed birthday boy and extremely disappointing experience!
