Its just the right size for him, being a fairly small six year old, so I would say if your child is any older I would consider a 3/4.
The body of the guitar is reasonable quality for the money, its lacquered ply with nice bright colours for a young child. the neck is good, not too bulky or flimsy.
the strings are all thin nylon, so easy to get true notes with for small fingers.
The downsides: The frets have no markers on, which I would have expected from a learner guitar. Close up, the lacquer on the guitar is thin and thready or bubbled in places, and I think due to the thinness of the ply and the lightness of the guitar some rough treatment would damage it pretty easily.
the free DVD is very dry and technical,not aimed at children at all, as is the free book that comes with it. a child of six would not be able to read the instructions or know the songs included. My son bored of the book and dvd very quickly. I have since picked up a dvd on ebay for a pound which is far more suitable as it is fun as well as doing the job of teaching.
all in all not a bad fist guitar to buy until your little one earns a little respect for his/her musical instruments, and at first glance it certainly looks the part.
My one and a half year old boy has been rather interested in my guitars and a couple of them have taken quite a bashing as he shouts 'itar'. As a result so I bought him this to try and and steer him away from my pride and joy. I have read a few reviews that say that the strings don't stay in tune or they slip. This is simply because nylon strings take some stretching before they become stable, give them a good stretch by pulling them away from the fretboard gently and then expect to keep retuning for the first few weeks. As for the strings slipping they are for some bizarre reason not fitted properly at the tuning forks (though they are fitted at the bridge properly). If you know what you are doing then restring it yourself or if not then take it to your friendly local music shop and ask them to restring for what I imagine will be a very small cost.
Easy on the fingers,easy to hold & nice & light.
The sound quality isn't amazing,but still more than good enough for a beginner.
Well priced to,so if whoever you buy it for gives up after a while,you won't be to annoyed.
I read somewhere that this guitar can't be tuned properly as the strings keep slipping.
It can be tuned,it just takes some patience.
On a normal steal string guitar the strings normally settle down after a day or two but with this you might have to double that.
Not sure whether it's the nature of the nylon strings or just the size of the guitar.
I think they've just put some cheap string on it,so try giving the strings a right good stretch. (watch u don't loose an eye in the process).
Just beware of how long your childs fingers are. Although my child is 6 he is struggling to fit all his fingers on the frets. We possibly could have gone for the three quarter size.
My boyfriend loves this!
