After researching various short scale guitars on the internet, for the value the SX got the best ratings.One place was Harmony Central.While there were mostly positive reviews, I did consider the points made in negative reviews mainly complaining of minor things. I decided to take the plunge and purchase this for my 8 yr old who desires to play guitar.

The guitar received is very nicely finished and great value. I was impressed, as this guitar is made in China. It is actually better made than Fender's Squire Mini, made in the East.The quality is comparable or better than Fender's Mexico made instruments.

The amp was also a surprise--considering that a similar Peavy small practice amp sells for around $60. The amp has several features and over drive, enough for a beginner to get started.

The guitar has a rosewood fretboard on a maple neck with a satin finish. The fretboard was dry so some lemon oil did the trick.While the finish is painted white and the wood below is not visible, the seller states the body is alder.In comparison Fender's Squire Mini web site says the body is laminated hardwood. Also the Fender has a fixed tremolo and 1 volume and 1 tone control.The SX has a moving tremolo and comes with the bar, 1 volume and 2 tone controls.

I was surprised out of the box the guitar did not need much adjustment to the set up.The instrument received was nicely balanced.This is a great value for the price and the quality of the instrument.

The only negative point is the gig bag that comes with the package is thinly padded and not a safe way to store or transport the guitar. I was able to find a well padded 3/4 Roadrunner gig bag at Guitar Center to store and transport the guitar when not in use.
