I was looking for a cheap small acoustic I could bring places and not worry about damaging, and it was between this and a Gretsch Jim Dandy. I bought this since it was readily available and significantly cheaper. I was worried I was going to have to keep it in A tuning, but it actually tunes down to E just fine with no buzzing at all surprisingly. Even more surprisingly, the action isn’t horrible like a lot of similarly priced guitars. Very playable, and I can sweep arpeggios about 90% as fast as I can on any other guitar. One big thing that I did not like though is that the frets seem to be made of coarse sandpaper. After the first day of playing I was starting to get little wear rings around each of the strings directly over each fret. Also, bends sound like you just laid down a motorcycle on concrete because of this. I’m going to be removing the strings soon and polishing the frets smooth which should fix my only real complaint, but it’s something to consider. All in all I don’t regret buying this whatsoever. So easy to just pick up and mess around on. I just leave it by my couch where I watch TV.

Great quality that one would expect from a veteran guitar maker and really the best bang for the buck. Adults love them also as a travel or kick around campfire guitar. Sweet tone, especially for the price.

It's the same size as a tenor ukulele. The workmanship is really good. We replaced the four higher note strings with tenor ukulele strings and it sounds much better. The only thing that could be improved is if the strings were more widely spaced (wider nut, wider neck).

I have a tayor GS mini but I bought this for travelling with even less luggage allowance! It's cute sounding and I play it daily. It's no GS mini (obviously) but sometimes I just feel like playing a tiny guitar. I'm really happy with it!

I bought this a year ago and have a lot of fun with it. It is well made for the price. It sounds great. I play ukulele. The Guitalele is tune as ADGCEA. The first four string is tune in low G like a ukulele and it is very versatile and fun to play with. The fret is a bit closed together and people with big finger may not like it. If you want a low G ukulele. Try this one. It sound marvelous.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

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.

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, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is 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

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 selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of 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: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

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.
