Bought this for my 7 year old nephew, nice guitar for a child beginner. Guitar needed a neck adjustment and action lowered.
Christmas pressie for youngest not unwrapped yet.
Remarkable quality for the price. Well set-up and excellent playability. A great start for a budding young guitarist.
Good beginner guitar. Nice finish.
