Product Description

The Music Alley Junior Guitar range are perfect for for the young player to experience playing a guitar for the first time. Built to quality standards expected from full size guitars the Junior guitar is suitable for children aged 3-6 . Fitted with Nylon strings rather than steel the guitar is ideal for or small hands as small hands and fingers will find it far easier to hold the string down and to form chord shapes.

The Music Alley Junior guitars are available in a wide range of colour finishes and are supplied with colour zip bags to give the guitars protection. The machine heads which tune the strings are full size, are easy to use and once the strings have settled in will hold their tuning well.

As the Music Alley Junior Guitar is a real working guitar and not a toy it can be played properly so included in the box is access to free online lessons to help children learn how to play in a fun and engaging way. The online access also includes plenty of other tips including how to tune and look after your guitar.

I bought this for my six year old son to whom I have promised my old strat when he learns how to play.
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.

This is a fantastic little package, it comes with a book and CD and some tuning pipes. I really don't know how they do it for twenty five quid.

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.

Ideal for my niece who's been begging for a guitar.
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).

Happy playing.

Fantastic guitar. Nice and bright, my child loved the colour. Book and cd are basic and informative, even if my six year old is not quite old enough to get it, I am. I've got my old guitar out and I'm practicing.

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.

I bought this for my 7 year old son who wanted to learn to play. I didn't want to spend a lot in case it was another hobby that fell by the wayside however he has hardly put it down since it arrived. It is a great size and just right for a small child. It was well packaged. I agree with other comments about the tuning but once tuned produces a reasonable sound. Good value with the DVD and the tuning pipes too. Definitely recommend it as a first guitar.

This guitar was smaller than I expected. It looks good though and was ideal for my small 7 year old who is just starting lessons. However, it does not seems to hold its tune for long before it needs re-tuning. I am no expert but this might be related to the fact it has nylon strings and that it is new. I am hoping that over time, once the strings have stretched a bit, this will become less of an issue.

We bought this for our 4 year old on his birthday. We looked around alot and read plenty of other reviews and this one seemed to be the best in terms of being an actual instrument rather than just a toy. We have only had it 1 week but so far it has proved not only extremely popular with both our 4 and 7 year old but also pretty sturdy and has a great sound. Easy to tune and the perfect size for little people. It has scratched already but this is probably inevitable given it is carried around the house and knocked against things as it goes! I would recommend this item.

I would recommend this for any learner as it is easy to hold, softer on fingers than full size guitars and has tutorial to get you started.

My boyfriend loves this!
