Short Scale Electric Guitar

Not everyone has long fingers (and we're not implying something criminal here). Some people just like to play guitar with short scales, especially kids who might have been learning on a classical guitar until now, initially do easier on a model such as the one here. Apart from that, this has the features and look of a traditional model.

Of course it can also be used as a space-saving travel guitar (for those who just can not live without practicing!)

I brought this as a presnet for my daughter and for the money I really wasn't expecting much. But I build guitars and do set-ups so all I really needed was a base for future improvements

On openign the vbox i was pleasantly surprised. The guitar arrived and was playable out of the box. It tuned up nicely and starting holding its tunign well after a good stretching of the strings. the action was about 2.5mm at the 12th fret and was playing buzz free. I lowered this to 2mm and it was still buzz free. I have played a lot of expensive guitars which can't say the same!!!

It weighed 5lb 2oz which is still a little heavy for my daughter, but she is only 3 and already enjoys having this on her lap and strumming it whilst I play my full size guitars. tbh I will be playing it myself sometimes as its perfectly acecptable as a real instrument

When i plugged this one in the bridge pickup was noticeably lower volume. they are all set to the same height which may be contributing to this but when I checked DC resistance the real reason became clear. bridge is 4.3k, middle is 5.2, neck is 4.7. they could be evened out in volume with height adjustment but they do work as they are and are relatively inoffensive. ( usually pay 3-5 times the price of this guitar for a single pickup!! I am a pickup snob)

The edges of the fretboard of the fretboard rolled and feels comfy as a result. the maple is also flatsawn as it should be and is covered in a really thin lacquer - actually much nicer than a heavy gloss finish. it feels sleek. It seems to have had dye on the rosewood board. firstly the dots are very dark, secondly there is a noticeable colour difference between the bare rosewood and lacquered side. but it is real rosewood and even the big name manufacturers use dye on a fretboard occasionally - I was more surprised they had bothered on such a cheap guitar

Obviously I am a tinkerer and have taken the guitar apart. Everything was as it should be. It has a large swimming pool route under the guard which will fit most types of pickups. It is clear from the neck pocket that the solid wood body is more of a blockboard style with strips of wood topped with a cap. I am fine with this for a cheap guitar. Its a style of construction used on much more expensive things such as mexican fenders. It is preferable to the heavy ply some min guitars are made from

Great starter guitar

I bought this guitar for my 8 year old son and he loves it. As it is a small guitar it fits perfectly onto his lap and isn't too heavy for his to hold with the elbow whilst playing. The guitar came fully set up and a quick tune and it was ready to play. The only negative is that this guitar is tuned to A, rather than the standard E tuning, this could be because the strings that are supplied with this guitar appear to be 10's and tuning to E might put to much pressure on the neck - when the strings are due a change, I might put on a set of 9's and try a E tuning.
The guitar fret work is smooth and no fret ends to catch your hand whilst playing. The neck is quite wide, not too wide for a child's hand. With the cut away body it is possible to get right up to the 21st fret.
Hardware consists of three single coil pickups which are bright and sharp sounding. A 5-way switch for the pickups, a volume and tone pots, all which do exactly as they were designed to do.
Sound wise: as I said the pick ups are bright and sharp sounding, I am used to humbuckers and thought these might be a bit too harsh for my ears but roll of the tone pot and it has a pleasant sound which is quite warm. It does take a bit of used to hearing a guitar in A tuning, so playing along to songs following a tab might prove a bit difficult as you will be in the wrong key, but again this is a minor issue.
A good starter guitar for children.

Oooh - fun!

I got this for my kids to play around with - they often want to play on the "'tar" while Daddy is playing on his guitar ;-). It was cheap and the reviews seemed generally positive. So even if it wasn't that great it'd fit the brief of being a guitar that a 4 and 7 year old could play with.

So what did I find when I opened the box?
- The woodworking is decent - the neck is lovely - smooth & straight, the fretwork is good as well (no sharp ends that I could find), the body to neck join tight and the finish on the body is good as well.
- It had a decent setup on it - there's barely any fret buzz.
- It's tunable (I started in A-D-G-C-E-G and then moved to G-D-G-B-D-G), but it's fiddly. Partly that's because the short scale means the strings are more sensitive but it's also down to the tuners which have a bit of backlash in them. It'll be interesting to see how well it stays in tune.
- The three pickups definitely produce different sounds. Overall the resulting sound is a bit rough to my ears - there's a lack of smoothness & a lack of high-end but it's more than adequate.
- The tone control doesn't do a lot - but that's not particularly important to me.

Overall it's amazing value for the money!

Worth money :-)

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 :-)

A bit disappointing

Having purchased a number of Harley Benton guitars and been generally blown away by the quality at their price-point, I was hopeful of another success with this junior guitar I bought for my son. However, I was a little let down by this purchase. The guitar looks good & is well finished but was noticeably detuning during chord changes. Therefore, it required significant changes to its setup in order for it to play correctly, unlike the other models I have purchased (I'm a pretty casual/forgiving player & generally I am very satisfied with how these play out-of-the-box). It plays ok now with the changes, but in hindsight, I probably wished I'd spent a little more on a full-sized HB that he could grow into.

Pros: looks nice
Cons: poor setup out-of-the-box
