I purchased this bundle for my five year old son, and it's been a good beginner guitar package. He is 46 inches tall, and the half size is just about perfect for him. We also have a 3/4 size guitar at home, and that is definitely too big for him.
- The guitar looks very nice, in terms of the color and the style.
- I usually play a full sized steel string acoustic guitar myself, so this one sounds very quiet, almost muffled. I believe that's more due to the smaller size and the nylon strings than because of the quality.
- The quality is pretty much what you'd expect from a beginner guitar in this price range. It's fine for a beginner.
- It's actually very easy to play, which is also great for a beginner. The strings are very easy to push and hold down.
- The items included in the bundle are also fine. The tuner is easy to clip on and use. The case is relatively simple and cheap, but it serves the purpose.

Overall, I'm happy with purchase. It's not the best guitar I've ever seen, but it's perfect for a young beginner.

I have just recently picked up a guitar again and restarted as a beginner. I was hesitant because other reviewers who purchased this guitar for young children. However, I did see a couple of adults buying it for themselves and decided to chance it. I'm glad I did. With the smaller size, exactly what I looked for, I can practice from the comfort of my recliner without repositioning myself upright. It has a decent tone quality, enough to play for fun and to figure out songs. It is a good beginner's guitar, not one I would play seriously for family or friends at a party or in public. The size sold me.

Compared against a cheaper $33 Amazon 1/2 size guitar. The Yamaha is plain gorgeous with near perfect finishing, while the no name brand had obvious cosmetic paint defects. Tuning knobs feel much more substantial and the strings are neatly looped thru the end of the guitar (the cheapie guitar had strings knotted out the end and wrapper to the side. Unfortunately I am not good enough to tell audio quality, but i am happy to pay more for such an obvious quality difference. I got the warranty from squaretrade

Excellent guitar for my 7yr old beginner. We are more than happy to use it everyday.

Our son likes this very much. He plays often now.
The size is good and the string action is fine.
The sound is okay, but it is a beginner guitar.

The auto tuner is a nice touch.

Bought for my 7 year old at the recommendation of his teacher. Perfect size and great sound. Worth the price especially as my son could tell this was a real instrument and not a toy and wanted to practice immediately

This was a Christmas present for my step daughter and she Loved it! She's learning violin in school but always grabbed daddy's guitar. She started playing right away with daddy and since this is the right size has been able to pick up much faster, and reach the strings with ease. It was very nice hearing them play Christmas songs together.

Been playing this guitar everyday for the last year and 1/2 or so and have loved every moment with it. Survived many a hike and has taken on a warm tone. Really love this guitar and its pure utility. I don't have much to compare it to, but the intonation is great and the strings have died back into a really warm sound. It has been dropped and had all manner of crayons and food shoved into by my kids. It also helped me survive my way through a cattail marsh. I hope our fellow people making these guitars in Indonesia are getting payed a fair wage. I love this guitar.

My daughter is 7, and this is the perfect size for her. She is learning quickly, with no issues related to the size of the instrument. Also, the sound quality is very good. It may not sound as good as an expensive guitar, but it's great for starting out.

Much too small for an adult's hands, though.

love it, great tuner and self starter Uke, The sound is great
