Great Quality and Playability

  • Summary: Fantastic package; You get everything, including a cd rom, but unlike some "all in one" packs, THIS guitar is surprisingly HIGH quality. Looking close at the solid spruce top reveals awesome wood; the back and sides are also beautiful, but the binding is sublime. It's obvioulsly not a concert or performance type guitar, but made for travel and the tone reflects that, but still it sounds great and the quality is unbelievable for a portable guitar.
  • Pros: Extremely Well Made, Fun To Play, Good Feel, Stays In Tune

  • Summary: I sold my Martin since I just wanted a small guitar for the couch and piddling around. This guitar fits the bill nicely. Did not sacrifice sound hardly at all. Has the feel of a larger guitar also. Well packaged from Amazon as usual. The guitar, Case and accessories of the highest quality.

totally pleased

  • Summary: I read all the reviews and I was concerned about the smell that previous owners talked about but I decided to take a chance and I am very glad I did, mine did not smell at all, it is possible they found the problem and corrected it, the instrument is great and does what it was built for. A travel guitar which is not a concert guitar and it is not like a regular size instrument, I totally recomend it for this purpose.

  • Summary: Wow amazing sound for a small package, excellent workmanship. Looking for Martin i happened on this gem. Far superior in sound and comfort. Has a resonance that is UNBELIEVABLE. Action is very nice. You must try this before you spend the extra money thinking the dollar buys the sound. Kudos to Washburn sound engineering.

Airplane Friendly Little Beast

Family of Four, amazon.com
15 December 2011
  • Summary: I received Tiny Tim about four days before a trip to India. I lugged it through nine airports and a few rapid temperature changes. All-in-all a good deal, particularly if you can handle a little bit of puttering around to get things just right. I consider the money well spent. That said, it was still a treat to get home and pick up the FG730S. Pros: Stays reasonably tuned, even after 22 hours in the air. Decent sound. Mine came with D'Addario strings.

Wow!

  • Summary: I'm very happy with this little guitar. It exceeded all of my expectations. It sounded much better than expected. A very pretty finish. Nice action. I figured it would come with horrible strings but it actually had D'Addario EXP strings. The case is great. Heck it came with a "how to play" CD, a strap, three picks, an extra bridge and a wrench to adjust the truss rod. I would've been happy with just the guitar at this price, so all of the extras are wonderful.

Perfect for travel!

  • Summary: Bought this little guitar for practice while traveling. I was skeptical that there would be much quality for the price. I am glad a made the purchase. The action is very nice. The neck is very straight. The frets will need a bit of work from my local Luthier as they are a bit uneven, no big deal there. The sound quality is a lot better than I thought even after watching a ton of you tube vids about it. Plenty loud for camping or beach trips.

  • Summary: This guitar have a beautiful sound and size is great for travel. It's a bit heavy though. Very good quality with great price. This is NOT a piece of junk you will find everywhere at same price. Highly recommended.

Awesome little toothpick

B. Sells, amazon.com
5 October 2011
  • Summary: I've had this thing for a few days, and for what I payed for it (under $100) I couldn't be happier. The sound is better than expected - it sounds more like a cheap full-bodied acoustic than something the size that it is, to my ear, which is more than I expected in a tiny little travel guitar. The neck is very playable, mine came strung with good D'addario strings, nice case that looks like it can be banged around a bit with no worries.

Great Value - A Tough To Beat Package

14 September 2011
  • Summary: As an intermediate hobbyist guitar player, this is the eighth guitar I have owned over the past 35+ years. I currently own three guitars; an electric, an acoustic electric and most recently this Washburn Rover travel guitar. I purchased this Rover for an upcoming trip. I was not willing to put my favorite guitar in the cargo hold of an airplane...
