Horrible! Don't Buy!

Comments about Sakar International Barbie 30' Acoutic Guitar:
We bought this guitar for my daughter's birthday last year. Right out of the box we were disappointed in it. We thought there were real sequins on it, but it was only a big sticker. It felt really flimsy and cheap too. It was actually inferior to the Spongebob guitar we got her the year before (which was only $20 btw). Well, my daughter's 'friend' began playing with it and wouldn't allow my daughter to touch it. Within a half hour, it was broken. The next day, I returned it (Toys 'R' Us was very understanding and allowed me to exchange it.) I brought the new one home, with the caveat that 'Friend' was not allow to touch it. My daughter didn't play it very much, until tonight, and guess what happened? It's broken again! She knocked it over accidentally and it looks like it has been in a heavy metal concert (ie. completely destroyed). It is very overpriced considering the poor quality. I am NOT getting a new one, that's for sure. Next time I'll do what my parents did for me--buy an actual used guitar. It's not as pretty, but at least it won't fall apart when you try to play it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

best yet I love the instrument
Good for older child who loves the instrument. It is also very useful for those taking guitar lessons who can appreciate and would be more responsible for product. This wss a gift for my granddaughter who loves to sing and is learning to play. Recommend 6 years and older.

Good eye candy to get them interested

Obviously, a Yamaha JR1, Baby Taylor, Martin LX, or equivalent will be a much, much better guitar. However, those are boring for a 7-year-old girl and 3-8x more expensive.She bought it with her own Christmas money. I tuned it up and taught her the one-finger C and G chords.Strings play really close to the fret-board, which makes it easy to play ... similar to a junior electric guitar (e.g., Squier Mini). So, after only 15 minutes, she was able to play those simple chords. Nice.Some odd reviews here, such as "the chords are too thick." I don't even know what that means.Obviously, it's cheaply made (many of the complaints here were for damaged product). It's thin, which makes it easy to hold an play ... that's a good thing. But, the lack of depth beneath the sound hole lends itself to pretty poor sound ... as do the materials (which have the acoustic response of cardboard). Musically, this is a terrible guitar. But, that's not what it's for. It's to get a girl interested in music. So far, so good.Once she learns a few 3-fingered chords and some simple songs, it will be time to step up to a real guitar.Took about a day to stretch out the strings enough that the guitar will hold tune decently.It's good for what it is, just go into it with realistic expectations. If you already have a girl hell-bent on being a guitarist, skip this one and get one of the ones I mentioned above. If you have a girl who just wants to dabble, this is perfect. When she gets serious, step up with the better product.

My only dissatisfaction was that the actual guitar did not match the image on the box. It appears to have glitter all over the face of the guitar but the actual guitar has a giant sticker that does not look like the display.

Lasted less than 48 hours. The handle was held to the base with tape?
Waste of money!

We purchased this guitar for our daughter's 5th birthday. We are returning it tomorrow. The guitar paint was chipped. The bottom portion was shoved up into the guitar. The sound was terrible. Overall, we were VERY unhappy with the quality of this product!
I'm not impressed.

This was a Christmas gift for my 8 year old girl. I was looking for something she could start on to learn to play the guitar. Please do not buy this if your child really wants to play something. This thing sounds so cheap....you cannot strum this guitar, the chords are too thick. This hit the dumster the week after Christmas, and we went to the local music shop and forked out the extra money to get her a real acoustic guitar. It is a very pretty guitar, just not functional.
