Summary: I bought 10 of these guitars for my beginning guitar class. They have held up very well, stayed in tune, and are fairly easy on the fingers for beginning students. I recommend them for grades 3 - 6, because they are the proper size for students' fingers and not too heavy for them to hold steadily.
Summary: My 10 year old daughter bought this guitar and loves it. The 3/4 size is comfortable, the wood construction feels solid, and the strings are not too high above the frets making easy playing. The steel strings, however, are hard for beginner's fingers with no calluses.
Summary: This is a follow-up to my first review as I thought you might need more info. Okay, first of all, I'll be honest. I am very impressed with this guitar. Although, it is not for everybody. If you're buying it for a 10 or 11 year old, you've made the right choice.
Summary: This is a great guitar for a young beginner. It's great, but the gig bag is not so great. I recommend buying a guitar case here, like I did. The gig bag takes a long time to zip up and does not offer good protection.
Summary: Es ist bereits die dritte Gitarre die ich wieder zurückschicke. Auch an der Yamaha JR-1 ist mal wieder ein wirklich fataler Fehler. Schon ab dem 3. Bund wird deutlich das die Gitarre zumindest auf den Saiten E,A;D nicht bundrein ist. Am 12. Bund ist die Bundreinheit jenseits von gut und böhse.
