Perfect For Young Beginners
My son's arms just aren't long enough for a full size guitar yet. I was worried that anything in his size would feel and sound like a toy. That is not the case here. This is a perfectly serviceable guitar. It has good intonation and a very playable neck. The pickups are quiet and they are responsive and musical enough to be interesting. Obviously, and American Strat that costs 10 times as much or more will have that extra magic to it, but you can get a fairly convincing Strat tone out of this little guy, so your kids can start to develop their ears early.
The only criticism that I have is that the tuners are not very precise. Once it is in tune, it stays that way, but it takes some finesse to get there. If I was going to hot rod anything on this guitar, it would be that. Even if you do decide to spend the money on upgraded tuners, you will still have a great bang for your buck in this guitar.
