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: Die kleine Yamaha bietet erstaunlich viel für relativ kleines Geld. Die Verarbeitung ist Yamahatypisch einwandfrei. Aus dem kleinen Korpus kommt erstaunlich viel Klang raus. Natürlich nicht so laut und kraftvoll wie bei einer großen Dreadnought aber doch ausreichend.
