Comments / reviews:
Got this for $40 in Dec 2015. I've been playing guitar myself for about 13 years, so here's my review on it:

$40 for a beginner guitar? It is worth it! Bought this for a 5 year old niece for Christmas. She loves the color (pink) and having her own guitar! But a month later, the most she's done with it is strum all the strings and sing Jingle Bells. But I'm sure she'll soon get around to wanting to actually play.

As for the guitar itself, I absolutely love the sound it produces! Such a full-bodied sound! I actually like to play it more than my own acoustic (still have my original Squier beginner acoustic guitar, it is alright.). The strings are really light/thin and I actually broke the G string on the first day while trying to tune it. Luckily, it comes with an extra set of strings (though they're unmarked, so you have to figure out which string is which)

Pros:
Full-bodied sound
Cheap price for a beginner (won't break the bank) and if it breaks, not a big loss
Guitar is scaled down a little bit so it should be easier for younger people to fully grasp it
Kids should love the awesome color choices -- my 5 year old niece loves the pink one!

Cons:
The tuners (the knobs at the head of the guitar for tuning the strings) are not very accurate and perhaps the string slips, so expect to have to tune it every time you play
The strings are very light/thin and may break easily (I broke a string when I first tuned it)
The extra strings do not have any labels at all so you'll have to figure out which is which
The fret dividers (the thin metal strips on the neck of the guitar) are rough and slightly affect the sound
The neck of the guitar does NOT have the standard dot inlays to easily figure out which fret you're on -- I used Pearl White nail polish and made a dot(s) where they should be. It worked pretty well

If you are a serious musician who expects Cordoba quality from a **$40 guitar**, this is not the sort of guitar for you. Hit up a pawn shop and hope someone else's misfortune will be your good fortune. However, jf you are just starting out and want something inexpensive to find out if the guitar is for you, this is a good choice. If you are purchasing this for a teenager who is interested this week, but may or may not be next week, this is a good choice. If you want something inexpensive to travel with that sounds pretty good, but won't break your heart when it inevitably gets damaged by the airline, this is for you. If you're drunk shopping and drunk you doesn't know if sober you wants a guitar, this is a good choice. It is not a toy and it is not appropriate for a small child. It is a good, basic starter guitar for less than a good set of strings will cost you.

I am 43 and decided to take up learning to play the guitar after years of watching my husband. He hated me messing with his Fender, so he bought me this in pink to learn on. The strings that come with it, he hates. So go to the music store and pick up a nice set, and a real guitar pick. The one that comes with it is HUGE. Otherwise, I love the pink color, new strings made a huge difference, and it sounds pretty good! He even played fade to black on it to test sound, (a metallica song). I love it, great for a beginner, and now I won't have to touch my hubby's precious Fender;) the case it comes with is ok, but overall, I would say pretty good guitar for the price. Good for learning.

I wasn't expecting much as per the other reviewers. I'm going to start with I have no knowledge of superior guitar playing, but I grew up with my older brothers, both of whom played the guitar, so I've always wanted to learn. I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on a guitar because I was afraid that I'd never actually use it, like most of my over-ambitious thinking.
It's absolutely beautiful, the guitar. A few dents here in the paint here and there but for the price I paid I wasn't expecting much. When I was tuning the guitar none of the strings snapped, which I was happy about because the other reviewers said when they tuned one of the cords snapped. The pick was really large but thankfully had a spare laying around the house from my older brother. The bag is thin, but I don't mind since I'm not going to be taking it anywhere soon. The pitch pipe is cheap, which again, I found not to be that much of a problem because I found a great tuning/learning app on the Google Play store.
So, if you're a causal learner like I am and have no idea how much you're actually going to play it, this is the guitar for you!
Overall I am really glad I bought this guitar!

Our granddaughter wanted a guitar but we were unsure how committed she would be to learning how to play. This is a nice package without a huge investment. We tuned it up and it sounds great. We got the black and it certainly looks and sounds like a much more expensive guitar. She flies here for the summers so the case was a nice addition for her to take it on the plane with her. Very pleased with this purchase.

Here is what you need to know about me before you read the rest of my review: I am a pretty musical person. I play keyboards and ukulele, and decided that I would like to venture into the challenge of learning guitar. Also, you should know that I am visually impaired. I can see, but not very well at all. Kind of like Mr. Magoo.

Here is everything that came in the box and what I think of it:

1. The Guitar: Beautiful color. I thought it was going to be a lighter blue color, but mine kind of looks purple, which is nice because that's my favorite color. I'm not sure if this was intentional or a mix-up at the factory, but I am content. There were a few dings in the finish, but that's OK with me. I'm not taking it out in public for performances any time soon.

2. The "gig bag:" I like the straps on the gig bag. You wear it like a backpack, which is handy, actually. Also, it has a pocket on the front where you can keep your extra strings, your tuner, and your picks, if you want. It's kinda cheaply made, but hey, I only paid $14.95 or something like that. I'm not complaining in the slightest.

3. Tuner: I was a little concerned when I saw that it would come with a tuner. I thought that it would be a visual display to help you tune the string. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the tuner in question was actually a pitch pipe, with six different pitches to blow, one for each string. Love that part of the deal! Wish I had one of these for my ukulele, but I'm not complaining.

Strings: Ah, yes, well, here is the one flaw in this otherwise acceptable arrangement. I was tuning the G string when it snapped. The pitch was still too low, but the string just snapped. So I thought to myself, "OK, no big deal, I have a spare." Upone replacing that string and attempting to tune it, the replacement string snapped as well. I have since ordered a new set of strings, so that I'll just replace them all so I know what I'm dealing with. I only knew that the strings were steel and I didn't know the gage or anything else about them, so I'm just going to replace them all and then I'll know what I have next time one breaks.

My overall opinion of this product is that it is a good guitar to start with, to learn on. It doesn't have to be perfect if you are just learning in the comfort of your own home or in the company of an instructor who isnt' going to look down on you or anything like that. If you are going to buy this product, I do highly reccommend that you buy a new set of strings, since there is no way to be sure what strings are already on the guitar. Thankfully, strings, even steel ones, can be pretty cheap. I got mine for $3. I also bought some extra picks, but that's nothing to do with the one that came with the guitar. Oh yeah, did I mention the kit only comes with one pick? You might also want to buy some extra picks just in case. I got a 12 pack of blue ones for $5 or thereabouts. But this is a good product, and it shipped out really fast, even with only standard shipping. I was happy about that.

Happy playing!

I got my guitar early today. Unpacked and tuned it and it held the tuning even with new strings. Played around on it for a couple of hours.
I gotta say that I fell in love with it immediately. The neck is narrow and the strings are close but I have long skinny fingers so it worked perfectly for me.
I have horrible neuropathy in my hands (almost no feeling), and used to play guitar professionally but quit due to the neuropathy.
I have been rehabbing my hands and felt it was time to try again.
I bought this beautiful beginners guitar for that reason. I picked the perfect guitar that is therapeutic for my hands and mind.
Wonderful. Good action. Nicely built. Sturdy. Stays in tune. Nice paint job.
I am VERY happy. Wish me luck!

Such a great kit for a beginner. Gives them everything they need to get started. The quality of the strings isn't great, but you can replace those pretty easily. The pitch pipe also isn't super impressive, but you really don't need it when you have the electric tuner (or you can just use an online tuner). The only complaint with this is that the strap was filthy when it arrived. Threw it in the washing machine and it was fine. Also, the strap is kind of small, so if it's a bigger kiddo or a grownup using it, you might have to get a different one. Overall though, this is a great inexpensive instrument to learn/practice on.

As a first for a nine year old who is exploring musical desires, I are very happy with the quality. The pink is very cute for a girl. The carrying bag is nice and easy to wipe clean but it does not have a real cushion to protect it from being placed on the ground. It does come with pick, pitch pipe, shoulder strap, digital E-tuner, and extra replacement strings. Sounds really great.

As a modifying statement to my final sentence (see below) it is not a sturdy or well-made product. The neck and the fret bowed in just a few months. This caused a strange pinging when the lower cords were played. We took this to guitar center and they said this kind of thing was common in places with high-humidity. The only problem with this is we live in the dessert. He also said it would cost hundreds of dollars to fix something like this and the neck would need to be completely re-done. Got less than half a years use out of this. Don't waste your money.

I was very reticent to make this purchase after the back-and-forth of lukewarm and bad reviews. For others in this spot, I hope to put hesitations to rest as this as a fine, completely useable and satisfactory product either as a gift or for those just starting out on guitar. While I wouldn't say this guitar is gig worthy, I doubt a passing ear would gauge the quality of this $30 guitar as I think is sounds great. You cannot, however, play it right out of the box. It is strung with unstretched steel strings and is completely out of tune. It should be restrung with nylons, which run less than $10; after that the product is good to go. I have loved this purchase, as has my brother, to whom it was given. The body is a good shape and color. It is classic cutaway, with glossy black paint and a purple trible ring in the middle. It looks and sounds good. It is light (I am not sure yet how sturdy) but the sound is pitch perfect, making this the perfect first-step for those starting guitar.
