Worth money :-)

Total rating

So a bit ago, I needed a guitar for traveling around. Nothing special, nothing very good and nothing better than my real guitars. Just a small version to jam and to play when not being able to take my normal guitars with me.

There are several small guitars on the market and there are also "traveling" guitars. Really exciting :-)

But I chose this one. Because:
It's very cheap! So should happen anything to this guitar, it is not neccessary! :-)

The amplified sound is not very very good, but it's also not that bad! It's ok! Better than I had expected :-)

For children or somebody with really small hands it could really be the first guitar!

For my traveling issues - it's perfect.

Quality is also just 'ok' - but hey, it's cheap! And for the price well worth!!

Cool guitar :-)

Nice guitar at a nice price!

Very nice guitar for the price!
I bought it for a good friend's child. He will be very happy I guess :)

The only minor problem (but I guess is not that specific guitar related) is that you have to tune it to A/D/G/C/E/A. Probably because of the size, it's not possible to hold the normal tune.

Good first electric child's guitar

My 6 year old son is delighted with his guitar. Ordering from Thomann is so easy and it arrived here (Ireland) within a few days. I ordered the package which includes Amp, lead, plecs etc. Didn't include case so I ordered one which turns out to be for a full size guitar - maybe I should have been more careful!
I couldn't tune the guitar so decided to change the strings, adjust the neck and bridge. The adjustments helped but it goes out of tune very easily. I am hoping that once the new strings settle in a but and with a bit of play, it will improve. The action is very good for such a cheap guitar and I recommend the Amp (Harley Benton) The sound is excellent, each control changes the sound unlike other guitars and Amps. As a starter guitar I am not 100% sure but time will tell.

just for toying on

If your looking for a toy guitar for your kid this is it
My kid loved it but as for playing it its a bit hard
neck is about standard width, with a shorter scale
so out of proportion
