I bought this for my 2-year old son to introduce him to instruments. But in fact I have been playing the GL1 as much as he have done. It feels very solid, good sound, good quality and stays really good in tune. As my son now is 3,5, years old the guitar have gone through a lot over the past two years, but it still is really great except from a couple of dings. But it still sounds really nice. I have been using it as a travel guitar, "jam-in-the-sofa guitar and so on. really great product with good quality and sound with a lot of different areas of use.
