    Customer review by Shand

    5.0 stars by Shand

    Bought this guitar thinking it would be an Ebay sell if it didn't sound good. Boy was I wrong, this guitar sounds good, and I can play it easily. Trust me, if you have a son or daughter who is thinking about playing the guitar, this is the best starter guitar for them to learn on. And if your child wants to go further than the lessons in the 120 page book included, then as a parent shell out the dough to the guitar instructor or the broadband fees for the internet. No they don't have to buy the Guitar For Dummies 2nd Edition to play like the big boys. Have them learn under a patient guitar teacher and then they will learn to really play as long as they practice. Kudos to Kona for this giutar, but I have tow things to tell prospective buyers of this product. You will need two things to play and protect this guitar. 1. At least 3 sets of guitar strings (one set to put on this guitar once you buy it. Light guage is great for beginners) and a First Act Electronic Guitar Tuner from Wal-mart.com to tune the new set of guitar strings. The other two sets of guitar strings are for when you or your children wear out the first set of strings. 2. A padded gig bag for lugging the guitar to the guitar teacher or a friend's house to play. Or if you have the cash, a hardshell guitar case for an Acoustic Guitar. You don't want to have a 100+ dollars guitar broke by your teenage son or daughter who you bought it for, or you don't want to accidentally break it yourself. That would make you feel so low. I can't thinkj of anything else.

    The Kona bundle is a wonderful value. It is an acoustic guitar, so the strings are metal. Classical guitars have the nylon strings. The enclosed tuner, which includes a AAA battery, works perfectly. You can only pluck one string at a time. Stop the sound, then move on to the next string. The enclosed book, "Guitar Basics for Dummies" is a "Special Edition" in other words an abridgement, BUT you will be able to play chords immediately. There is an enclosed CD-ROM, not a DVD or CD, but a CD-ROM which has only audio files, which can help you tune your guitar. You get three guitar picks, a special tool to adjust the neck (which I would suggest you not do unless you are a luthier or a professional guitarist), and a very nice bag, not padded, but it has a handle and two straps on the back, as well as front pouch where you can store the instruction book and picks. This is a guitar for older teens and adults. The metal strings are difficult, but you have to build up your calluses! BTW, I am a classical pianist, so I have some advantages in that I can read music and am able to tune the guitar using relative tuning. With shipping and taxes, this was a sub-$100 guitar and I could not be happier with this purchase. Yes, I need to get new strings, a foot stool would be nice (I am holding this as if it were a classical guitar), a guitar strap would be great, buy a capo, et cetera. But that is for later on. This would be a wonderful birthday gift for your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, or as a 5th anniversary wedding gift (wood). This guitar has a beautiful ringing tone and nice depth on the lower strings. This is an inexpensive way to make music and for you to find a hobby that is enriching and rewarding, and one that doesn't require electricity to create art!

    I was eally surprised at the quality of the product considering the price. I purchased this product for a beginner. I didn't want to spend a lot on an instrument that he might lose interest in. This guitar gives him the perfect opportunity to assess his skills & abilty.

    • For anyone thinking of just reversing the strings to convert this guitar to a left-hand model, you need to be aware that the nut and and bridge will no longer be properly orientated. They will need to be reversed as well to accommodate the conversion. This MAY NOT be possible. If you are just learning, learn to play right handed. That is what my left-handed son is doing. You will have a lot more guitar choices down the road if you can adapt. If you absolutely need a left-hand guitar, you would be better served to buy a left-hand model, but there are fewer choices especially in beginner models.

    • I am left handed and unfortunely it would be very diffcult to play left handed. This is made for people to play as a right handed guitar.

    • I would recommend re-stringing it backwards but make sure you stop by a music store and have them add a shield piece on the wood to protect the guitar from strumming or picking. I think it is fine to re-string it backwards. It is such an inexpensive guitar it would be fine for just learning.

    • Yes, all you have to do is restring it! You put the high E string at the top, and the low E string at the bottom. To restring, if you don't know how to do it, you might want to go to a luthier or a guitar center and ask them to do it for you. I do not know how much they would charge to restring.

    • This guitar can be played by either a lefty or a righty.. Just have to make sure that the strings are correct for either the right 0r left handed player. Usually the guitar is stringed for a Right-handed player.. just reverse the strings for the left-handed player. The thicker String (E-String) is on the top.

    • Simply restring it and yes. Basicly turning the guitar upside down from a right handed player.
