Didn't come up at £35 for me though. Still a good price at £40

Thanks edited post. If you use the voucher on this site it should work out £35. Still at good price either way. I brought one earlier, strange it checked out at £35 without the voucher!

IS this guitar suitable for adults or kids only?
i.e. is it too small for an adult to learn on?

thanks

No it's not just for children.

Why am i up ordering guitars at 7 in the morning??? Who knows.

Been looking for a cheap guitar for ages, got a Squier bass and its really well made, so hopefully this will be along the same lines.

Still less that £40 with delivery and voucher. Nice one!

Not a good learner guitar IMO. The 'action' on cheap guitars is dreadful and would put off a lot of beginners due to the pain and calluses. I fought through that on my Encore but have since found that the more you spend on a guitar, the easier it is to play. I would always recommend spending a bit more on a second hand quality guitar. Play them in the shop, see which one you like best.

very good advice, take music a little more serious and you will reap the benefits in 2-3 yrs time. thats my advice.

I I think it's a good thing to learn on a high action, if you had learned on a spanish classical style you would have an even higher action and there is no better foundation. Calluses are standard for a guitarists fingertips, I've had them solid for 30 years. Having said that, compared to a Martin Dread at £1000 plus these guitars have a low easy action. So I would suggest its a reasonable compromise.

The main thing to concern you should be the quality of the strings and their ability to stay in tune on this instrument. I have seen them before and they are not bad. Depending on luck you will probably get some trouble with uneven flatness on the fretboard causing strings to rattle on an adjacent fret for some notes, can be solved by careful use of a file. Excellent beginners guitar for learning good solid fret skills at the beginning. If you can play a rough action you should be OK to move to a finer actioned guitar.

It's a full size adult guitar, and of reasonable quality.

If you're worried about the high action, this can be alleviated to some extent by putting a lighter gauge of string on the guitar. If you start with .11s, despite the higher action, the strings will be slightly easier to hold down. There's a compromise here, in that the sound from the guitar won't be as loud or full, but if you're just starting out maybe you won't want all and sundry to hear you practice anyway!

You will need to buy a proper tuner. A pitch pipe thing is useless for a beginner.

Cheap price. Heat added but not suitable for begginers due to high action and more serious musicians would probably want a slightly better model. For a cheapy one to mess about with though it's perfect.

:whistling: Perhaps pitch pipes train the ears to match the string sound you are trying to tune. Digital tuners can be watched and are effective, but so was the tuning fork. Guitars have been tuned for centuries with pipes, reeds and tuning forks.
Good deal HEAT ADDED

I agree that a pitch pipe would help train the ear, but how many months of clunky, hard to do string tuning must they endure before they get any benefit of that trained ear? They will probably have given up by then because they can never get their guitar in tune.

When it comes to beginners take advantage of anything you can to make it easier for them.

sweet ive been after a cheapo acoustic since i smashed mine up, i just bought a slash les paul so anything over £50 i cant afford for the next 100 years lol, heat added

I don't agree firstly well over 50 % probably more like 70% give up after the first few months,so this is a good way to get into guitar playing and also a cheap way out if you give up, I learn t my basics on an Encore with light strings without problems.

A digital tuner with a well respected brand name like Boss will only cost you £15 with a built in metronome to boot (Eg. Boss TU80). I think that is a fantastic bargain and if you no longer need it you can get £10 for it on ebay I'm sure. If it was my kid I would prefer they always play in tune and have a metronome to practise with for the sake of an extra £15. They might end up trashing the guitar by dropping it, but the tuner is going to last 20 years worth of abuse. :thumbsup:

No i mean if i walk instore today will they have them?

if you reserve it online you will be able to see if they have it i guess, i know my tesco up the road dont sell guitars, so i guess also it depends on region, but you can check on their site for your local one

excuse my ignorance but what voucher gets you an extra £5 off ?

oh well its out of stock anyways

perfectly good guitar to learn a few chords on to begin with. plus the action from 0 - 5th fret wont give you any problems only above and you can always string it with a lighter gauge of string. most people give up soon after buying a guitar or realize that although they look cool you need to put work into it to get something out.
still throw away money for something that could really develop = bargin

out of stock, but was a really good deal.

At the end of the day it's £35 for a Squire (Fender) acoustic guitay, you can't grumble at that price.

gutted, coming up as £80 now anyway! doh.

mine just turned up, i will give it a test when i get home

Picked mine up today. Really nice guitar for £35

Just picked mine up, even at £80 this is a great guitar let alone the £40 I paid.

I bought it for my son who's just expressed an interest in playing. I certainly wish I'd learnt on a guitar this good. Lovely tone, action is reasonable too.

I wouldn't have liked to have to tune it up with the pitch pipes, glad I had a tuner already.
