The nylon strings are super easy to play. The nylon strings stay in tune as much as steel because they are higher quality and are installed correctly.
The sound is very warm, lively and responsive. The volume is very good for a smaller size body. The playability or "action" as it is called is very easy to play. For over 30 years I have done a 20 point, complete set-up to every guitar that has come through my shop. This is an $85. value performed free of charge.
HELPFUL INFORMATION ABOUT GUITARS:
I think it is safe to say VERY FEW IF ANY guitars in this price range are sold with the professional set-up we do to our instruments. ALL GUITARS SHOULD COME WITH THE WARNING LABEL "SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED." The industry standard for this price range is and has always been to sell guitars in a box rushed out the factory door not set-up, not adjusted. But guitars are made from many woods by many hands which results in very inconsistant quality. All guitars need the attention of an experienced craftsman before being handed over to the customer. Poor quality and difficult playability not lack of talent or effort is usually the source of frustration and failure for players. Teachers appreciate our instruments and the services we do. Their students don't struggle with technique and they don't get sore fingers. The teacher can spend their precious lesson time teaching rather than fixing guitars with issues.
34 inches LONG X 11 1/2 inches WIDE X 9 1/2 inches WIDE X 3 1/2 inches DEEP.

COMPLETELY SET-UP IN MY SHOP WITH D'ADDARIO J-45 CONCERT STRINGS AN $80. SERVICE WE DO FOR FREE.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE -This guitar has an adjustable reinforcement truss rod in the neck. MOST GUITARS IN THIS PRICE RANGE BOTH NEW AND OLD DO NOT.The neck on those instruments are usually warped, hard to play, won't play in tune. There is no inexpensive fix for a warped neck. We are also in the repair business. Over 35 years we have seen countless customers with instruments with warped necks and no option other than to throw them away.
ALSO INCLUDED IS A QUALITY NYLON STRAP AND STRAP BUTTONS INSTALLED, READY TO GO.
The strap is important. It promotes holding the guitar in the proper playing position andallows children to play standing up. Often kid's say they don't want to practice. What they really are saying is they don't want to sit and practice after sitting in school all day.
KIDS OFTEN ASK FOR A GUITAR IN A CERTAIN COLOR. Guitars painted a color are either toys or junk.Explain to your child this is a real guitar. You enjoy your favorite color with one of our Free straps.

When it is time for an upgrade or another grand child shows guitar interest you are #1 on my list. Sincerely, One very happy customer."
OVER OUR 30+ YEARS HERE'S WHAT WE'VE LEARNED ABOUT HELPING CHILDREN TAKE UP THE GUITAR
YOU'RE NOT SURE IF YOUR CHILD WILL STICK WITH IT so you don’t want to spend a whole lot of money. Thinking maybe buy something used, at a flea market, yard sale or catch one of those guitars “ON SALE” (yeah right) at a big chain store. HERE IS THE PROBLEM WITH ALL THOSE...YOUR CHILD WON'T BE ABLE TO STIC WITH IT with it on one of those guitars. Why? Those guitars are not made well, they are hard to play, matter of fact hurt to play and won’t stay in tune. Who can succeed on a guitar like that? That purchase will be a total waste of time & money. WE CAME UP WITH A GOOD SOLUTION BACK IN 2000 when we started producing our own Guitar Works, Inc. instruments and selling them direct to the public. It cuts out a couple mark ups and affords us to produce a higher quality instrument and do all the set- up work guitars MUST have. The bargain guitars are not really bargains folks!! We’ve also been in the repair business for over 30 years and have seen case after case where the “BARGIN GUITAR" in for repair cost more to fix than what it sold for.....
MAY I SUGGEST THIS our GWC-1/2 size guitar. It is a great fit for children that are average height 7 or 8 year olds. So include tall 6 year olds and small or petite 9 year olds. Its not just the size of the body that is important it is also the space between the frets on the neck being the right distance for the width of their hand.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND NYLON STRINGS for the age group. They are super soft to the touch and easy to press down, not to mention SAFER than steel strings in the event one should snap or break.
ALSO INCLUDED IS ONE OF OUR QUALITY NYLON STRAPS installed with two strap buttons and ready to go. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY PARENTS HAVE SHARED THEIR STORY of how their child will come home from school and the first thing they will do is pick up their Guitar Works, Inc. guitar and stroll around the house playing and singing. After a long day at school SITTING they want to move around not sit some more.
A TOUGH, HEAVY DUTY, PADDED NYLON CASE IS ALSO INCLUDED. It does a great job of protecting the guitar when not in use. The two shoulder straps come in real handy for backpack style carrying to and from school or lessons.
I KNOW $90. COULD POSSIBLY SOUND LIKE A LOT OF MONEY FOR A FIRST GUITAR, but if that young person’s first experience at the guitar & music is a good one they will experience the joy of music for life. A bad experience will do just the opposite. Just the other day a Grandfather told me a story I've heard a thousand times and said "If I had had a guitar this nice when I was a kid instead of the clunker which made me give up I would have played guitar my whole life instead I missed out"
CALL, CLICK OR COME BY. WE’RE HERE TO HELP. THANKS SO VERY MUCH FROM ALL OF US HERE AT GUITAR WORKS, INC. (Guitar Works, Inc. the original since 1978. No affiliation to any other stores)
WHAT ABOUT LEFT HANDED CHILDREN? In brief we approach it the same way as the piano community in that it takes two hands to play so play righty. They don't make left handed pianos. We have found almost all students of this age find it comfortable after just a day. But if you sense your child should play left handed no problem, we can set-up and string this guitar left handed at no extra charge.
