Great Guitar for Beginners!

By Kay

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Yamaha JR1 Mini Folk Guitar:

I bought 10 of these guitars for my beginning guitar class. They have held up very well, stayed in tune, and are fairly easy on the fingers for beginning students. I recommend them for grades 3 - 6, because they are the proper size for students' fingers and not too heavy for them to hold steadily. The cases are still in great shape after being hauled back and forth to school every week for 6 months. Best of all, customer service gave us an unbeatable price!

Good beginner guitar

By slushy

from San Francisco

Comments about Yamaha JR1 Mini Folk Guitar:

My 10 year old daughter bought this guitar and loves it. The 3/4 size is comfortable, the wood construction feels solid, and the strings are not too high above the frets making easy playing. The steel strings, however, are hard for beginner's fingers with no calluses. If you're used to hearing a full deep mellow sound on a full-size guitar, you'll probably think this guitar sounds a bit tinny at first. Just make sure the 3/4 guitar is accurately tuned and accept that there's limitations to the amount of resonance from a 3/4 size. My daughter will need a full-size in a couple or more years. But for now, this is a good guitar to learn basic chords, strumming, picking, etc. As for the gig bag, it has slight padding and is fine for moderate use.

More info

By Daniel Tran

from San Jose, Ca

Comments about Yamaha JR1 Mini Folk Guitar:

This is a follow-up to my first review as I thought you might need more info. Okay, first of all, I'll be honest. I am very impressed with this guitar. Although, it is not for everybody. If you're buying it for a 10 or 11 year old, you've made the right choice. 12 year olds should look in to a full size. This works great as a first guitar, but you should plan on getting a different one as your child gets better. This is very durable, has been dropped very hard a few times and not a scratch. It's also very light, making playing more easy and fun for kids. The gig bag. You should throw it away and get a Mic Eze 3/4 Case. It's so much better and more protective. I hope this has been helpful to you.

Great

By Daniel Tran

from San Jose, Ca

Comments about Yamaha JR1 Mini Folk Guitar:

This is a great guitar for a young beginner. It's great, but the gig bag is not so great. I recommend buying a guitar case here, like I did. The gig bag takes a long time to zip up and does not offer good protection.

Comments about Yamaha JR1 Mini Folk Guitar:

It is a great starting guitar but not very user friendly. 15 minutes of playing and this guitar will tear your fingers up.
