This is the best beginner/student classical guitar there is bar none. It's full size and the intonation is spot on, the tuners (whilst basic) are fully functional and consistent. The bridge saddle has 3rd string compensation and is set to a low-ish action. Putting a new set of EJ45's opens up the sound considerably (don't play with the crappy strings that are on it). Great second or studio guitar for the experienced player. Stick it in a half decent case and you'll have a fantastic holiday guitar for around £150. The spruce soundboard already sounds good and will improve with age. Buy, play it - chuck it about. - it's very well made and robust. Finish is shiny and cleans with a wipe. Buy it today.
First guitar purchase!
I love this guitar. Such a low price for a quality product. It has a fairly low action and is easy to play, producing a rich tone. Regardless of price, this is a beautiful guitar and is great fun to play!
Well made solid guitar. This was bought as a gift, yet to be given.
