I bought this guitar to put in my living room since it was small and really affordable and given the price I wouldn't care if it got beat up a little. Since it's so small and compact I found I took it everywhere and started playing it non-stop. You can't go wrong with this guitar.

I purchased one last year based on all the great reviews I've read and if you are looking for a small parlour guitar you'd be hard pressed to find better value than a G9500. Small enough to lug around and jam, I play it more than my Les Paul because it's so convenient. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a guitar in this size or someone looking to get started in learning to play.

I have had this guitar for three months now. I love this guitar! I find myself wanting to play things on this guitar that I normally wouldn't try on my full size guitar. Great sound! Easy to travel with.

Played one of these in the store when they first came out (they were about $150 then). I'd been thinking about picking up something I wouldn't worry about banging around and travelling with, but finding a guitar that wouldn't hurt to replace but was still a likable instrument was all but impossible. But this was definitely the answer. It's easy to have around the house (hang it on a door, lean it in a corner of the couch) and most of all it is fun to play. The intonation of the one I got is fantastic right up the neck. It has a great blues and folk sound to it. I even jammed a fishman soundhole p/u in it, and it works great. Yes, the finish is spray paint and the binding is painted on, and no, it doesn't give you the full warm tone of a finer guitar (I have a few acoustics, including a Larrivee C-09 and an older Gretsch dreadnaught), but it totally hits the spot for what it is. Top notch laser-guided CNC factory mass production and some really careful design obviously went into it. And two years on it still plays like the day I first tried it in the store.

This little parlour guitar has such a rich tone. Right off the bat, the action was perfect, and being someone who is limited mobility wise, Having a guitar that I can lay in bed and play is wonderful. Mic'ing this thing is really cool! You get some nice cut through tones. I recommend it to anyone.

I owned one for a while recently. Great twangy blues sound for picking/slide etc, or just noodling on the sofa. Not great for strumming, but each to their own. Build is ok and a nice addition for the money.

Dandy little guitar this thing is brilliant for the price. Plays nice, feels great. If I had children I would buy them this as a starter guitar but I also do not consider it a toy or any less of a guitar it is a nice good quality great sounding small sized affordable instrument.

Amazingly cool little guitar with a great sound and easy playability. Killer looks and a price too good to be true. If you find one in a store try it and buy it! I constantly get compliments on it.
