Classical guitars are always a good choice for beginners as opposed to traditional steel-string guitars because the nylon strings are soft on the fingers which leads to longer practice time and the greater nut width allows more space between the strings to place one’s fingers in the appropriate spots. This guitar felt very comparable to a much higher priced classical in terms of its playability, but it obviously lacks the volume and responsiveness of a guitar built with better quality woods and more attention to detail on the bracing. The important point is that this guitar is not going to derail one’s technical development in any way, it feels great, no intonation issues whatsoever and overall sound quality was fairly decent.
