New Student Package $295.00

It is important for all students to have a good quality instrument to practice on. There are so many poorly constructed guitars that have intonation problems and are difficult to play. Learning any instrument is a challenging undertaking. No student should suffer on inferior or inappropriately sized guitar. Hopefully this discounted guitar package will make the learning process easier for the student and the guitar teacher. The guitars are available in the following sizes: 1/2 size (small children), 3/4 size(adolescents), 7/8 size(teenagers, ladies and gentlemen with smaller hands) and full size* Read More
