Really nice small bodied (great value) guitar! 9 of 9 customers found this review helpful
Product Experience   I've tried it
Closest Store   Owen Sound, Ontario
I went in to my local L&M (Owen Sound, ON) to audition a pair much higher priced instruments. When I asked the sales rep (who really was fantastic and a wealth of knowledge) if they carried anything else that was comparable to what I was looking at, and he casually pointed to the Yamaha JR2 and said "Yeah, that $200 Yamaha, that's about it!" (I was looking at guitars 3-5 times that price.) I had my young children with me though, and thought it might serve as a good learner guitar to be slogged around the living room by them. So I picked it up, looked it over, and gave a few quick strums and scales. Then I didn't hand it to one of my children for close to 15 minutes! This guitar is basic, but it plays beautifully, and for its size and laminate construction (a solid top on this model is only $30 more, which is a great option). The action on the one I played was set up really well, and the construction felt solid enough that I would be comfortable trusting it with my kids, or as a really dependable fun instrument to bring with us camping, visiting family, busking, eating in a nice restaurant, attending funerals, attending graduations, even the births of stranger's children! Reading other reviews, I see people complaining that it lacks power on the bass end, but it is a small bodied guitar, big bass doesn't come from small boxes, even if you spend $4000 to have a master luthier design and build your instrument! I see complaints about the basic tuners, but it is (at the time of writing this) a $200 guitar (brand new!) the stock tuners work alright (mostly), and if you can't live with them forever, there are many options starting at around $20 that you can quickly and easily drop in that negate your foolish argument! This has become my staple recommended guitar at this price point. Get yourself and your loved ones (or some random people from just about anywhere) in to a shop and try it out!

It's a good guitar for the price but I find it doesn't have a deep voice, more high pitched and if u r used to playing on a full size guitar it will be harder to play cuz the frets are crammed

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
