    "Good guitar for a small beginner on a budget."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    I bought this guitar for my twelve year old daughter. She's very motivated to learn right now and I wanted a real instrument suitable for her small hands, but didn't want to spend a lot of money only to see it gather dust in a couple of weeks. The JR1 seemed to fit the bill. The sound is small and lacks the richness of a solid wood dreadnought, but it's not bad. It's fairly even across the strings and up the neck and the intonation is pretty good.
    Feature:
    It is smaller than I thought with a 21.5" scale which makes it smaller than what other manufacturers call a 3/4 scale guitar. The neck was straight and it has a truss rod to help keep it that way. The tuners are cheap but work okay and the instrument stays in tune fairly well.
    Ease of Use:
    The action at both the bridge and the nut were way too high. I discovered a spacer under the bridge and removing it made for an immediate reduction. I still trimmed another 1/32" off to make it more finger friendly. All but the high E string at the nut had to be brought down too.
    Quality:
    If you're used to higher end guitars with quality woods you'll be dissappointed, but if you can get over a plywood top and mass production, it seems to be a pretty good value for its purpose.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Haven't had a problem to test support, but Yamaha's a big company and I would guess they'll honor the warranty as long as you don't back your car over it.
    Value:
    If money's not a problem and you're sure it'll get played, I'd buy the Baby Taylor; otherwise this guitar's a good value for the budding young guitarist.
    The Wow Factor:
    Gimme a brake.... sex appeal? It's about giving young people an opportunity to develop musical skills and artistic expression!
    Overall:
    Like I said before, it's a good value for the budding young guitarist.
