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.
