Great price, Perfect for learning!

Thanks Iom-RF :)

Cautionary note.

This is a junior guitar, mostly likely half size, this size would be no good for adults. If you are at all unsure contact the sellers before buying.

Probably suitable for a 10 year old or under.

It's a deal certainly but please read up a bit about guitar sizes before buying.

Also i would recommend you get an electronic tuner too, they are about a fiver from most guitar/music shops! You'll not learn anything if your guitar isn't in tune!

How does it compare to the guitars that ebuyer are selling (that are full size):

They are full size so for adults.....

This would be more for kids, First guitar etc.

(BTW Cat, Added some heat, Forgot first time, Sorry!)

I bought this guitar about 3 months ago, can highly recomend it, it's a great guitar to learn to play, only one suggestion I'd recomend buying some decent quality strings as the ones supplied arnt the best.....
#9
The Ebuyer ones are full size and are fine for 10-11 year olds and up.

These really are for a small child, so if you are looking at around 10 years + then I'd go for the Ebuyer package:thumbsup:

Plus the fact, these are really awful - single pickup, tiny amp etc. They are more at the toy end of an electric guitar so bear that in mind too
#10
so are the Ebayers good proper ones for adults then?
#11
i'd have to recommend the yamaha pacifica as a begginers guitar.. not too much more (they had at local music store for £89).. no amp at that price but then thats probably a good thing. The guitar above has a snazzy finish but its all cosmetic and it looks cheap to me, which is fine if you want room furniture but for playing id go with a brand... oops - cant comment really on junior sizes really only full size

They're more than fine if you're a beginner.

The Les Paul copies are really heavy with a great sound - you become an axe hero even if you can't play:-D

Great for learning and if you want to get serious, you can decide if you want to invest in a more serious guitar.

However, these are great value for what they are:

LOOK - ONLY £39 FOR THIS!!! Spend another tenner for free P&P too!

I can only echo Cold Toast's comments.
#14
Cheap guitars are fine for beginners, I started with one.

These are NOT cheap guitars, they are complete and utter rubbish that will only put off a beginner. They are expensive landfill.

There are much better guitars around that are reasonably priced. Epecially around the £80 mark. even at £60 you can do much better than these.

someone already said these are "toys"....they are ONLY toys, NOT instruments IMO.
#15
IME NEVER get your child an expensive guitar when they have just decided to learn. We made the mistake with our son and paid far too much for a rather snazzy Yamaha guitar/amp etc. Learning to play is not the easiest thing in the world and I reckon 9/10 kids pack in in the first few months when they realise that Alex Turner is obviously the exception to the rule (ours certainly did!). We sold the guitar at a heavy loss. THe ebuyer one looks about the right price for a starter guitar to me.

Totally seconded - in fact, they're great for mid-life crisises on a budget too.. On the basics and important facts the ebuyer guitars are perfect. They're well made, very tunable (and stay in tune), reasonably easy to play and pretty well setup out of the box.

Sure, you'll get a better sound out of a better guitar, but frankly, only after you've learned to play it very well. I've had mine for over a year now, and although I'm not the greatest guitar player in the world (I'm missing my pick of destiny, must pick one of them up sometime), this package has been perfect for me. I've had a couple of lessons too and the 'professional' reaction was that the guitar was perfectly good for the job.

the yamaha pacifica as a branded guitar holds its value 2nd hand, its usually unbranded things that make a loss.
Its difficult as a beginner - investment / playability wise. but if you try you can get a guitar for under a hundred that rivals far more expensive guitars or you can save some money and get a guitar with a neck that warps, thats constantly out of tune with sharp frets that buzz's and sounds like mdf. Ive been teaching part time for 5 years and ive found that if your going to invest in lessons getting a decent guitar is a drop in the ocean
#18
Cold toast is right, Yamaha guitars hold value.
The guitars from Ebuyer are also OK for a beginner/improver and are perfectly good guitars.
The guitars in this "recommendation" though are complete **** and will not be played for longer than 10 minutes before being discarded. A bargain it most certainly is not.

I suspect those that voted it hot have never even picked up a guitar.

Low price guitars are often good buys but this guitar is not even worth the packing costs, it really is complete rubbish.

I know what you are saying but, be honest, what percentage of the kids who start lessons with you actually go on for more than 6 months? It's not just my son who lost interest when he realised it was harder than it looked, his mate did exactly the same and we know of a few other parents who's kids did the same.

I did that when i got an acoustic. Had a couple of lessons but didn't see me progressing much with all the finger picking and stuff so i gave up. Then a couple of years later i got an electric and have been playing for about 2 1/2 years now :thumbsup:
But these guitars seem really good to me, my first guitar was the yamaha package from Argos (not the pacifica, the Ezxr or something like that:whistling: ) but if i'd seen these i would of definetly gone for it :)

I've taught guitar for many years, and I always advise my students to learn right handed, even if they are naturally left handed. There are many reasons for this, but one of the best is that right handed guitars are much more readily available at a sensible price.

You don't get left handed flutes, or violins generally.

Anyway, for what it's worth, these look pretty cheap and nasty, and in my experience, it's really hard learning on a poor instrument, and people often get discouraged and give up due to that.

Cheers
