I was looking for a cheap small acoustic I could bring places and not worry about damaging, and it was between this and a Gretsch Jim Dandy. I bought this since it was readily available and significantly cheaper. I was worried I was going to have to keep it in A tuning, but it actually tunes down to E just fine with no buzzing at all surprisingly. Even more surprisingly, the action isn’t horrible like a lot of similarly priced guitars. Very playable, and I can sweep arpeggios about 90% as fast as I can on any other guitar. One big thing that I did not like though is that the frets seem to be made of coarse sandpaper. After the first day of playing I was starting to get little wear rings around each of the strings directly over each fret. Also, bends sound like you just laid down a motorcycle on concrete because of this. I’m going to be removing the strings soon and polishing the frets smooth which should fix my only real complaint, but it’s something to consider. All in all I don’t regret buying this whatsoever. So easy to just pick up and mess around on. I just leave it by my couch where I watch TV.

Great quality that one would expect from a veteran guitar maker and really the best bang for the buck. Adults love them also as a travel or kick around campfire guitar. Sweet tone, especially for the price.

It's the same size as a tenor ukulele. The workmanship is really good. We replaced the four higher note strings with tenor ukulele strings and it sounds much better. The only thing that could be improved is if the strings were more widely spaced (wider nut, wider neck).

I have a tayor GS mini but I bought this for travelling with even less luggage allowance! It's cute sounding and I play it daily. It's no GS mini (obviously) but sometimes I just feel like playing a tiny guitar. I'm really happy with it!

I bought this a year ago and have a lot of fun with it. It is well made for the price. It sounds great. I play ukulele. The Guitalele is tune as ADGCEA. The first four string is tune in low G like a ukulele and it is very versatile and fun to play with. The fret is a bit closed together and people with big finger may not like it. If you want a low G ukulele. Try this one. It sound marvelous.
