Nice surprise
Poggiali , 26.01.2020
I have low expectations for this guitar, but actually it is a decent instrument for a beginer. I am playing electric guitars for a long time, and decided to try somethin different.
I can say that is slightly better ratio in money/quality than my HB SC550.
Cons:
- frets are not polished
- frets are slightly sharp on the edges, both of problems can be solved by yourself in 30mins
- some tiny dents on the body

Pros:
- all in all good finish
- you can actualy play it without anny problems
- keeps the tune well
- price

I have try the new strings (fender 100) and get slightly brighter tone.

All in all, I would totaly recommend this guitar, if you are new to the guitar world or if you have some experience this is good guitar to have.

Very good value for the price!

I was first tempted by this guitar as it was sold in a bundle along with free accessories. I read that the Startone guitar was made my Thomann and I was looking for a cheap classical guitar so that made me make the purchase. The product came all the way from Germany to Mauritius professionally packed and safely. Not a single scratch and no damage of whatsoever to all the other accessories I got, which was a gig bag, Thomann clip tuner, a pack of strings, guitar and a foot rest.

Regarding the guitar, I was surprised by the quality. Once I tuned the guitar, the low action of the strings surprised me!
I have played a lot of classical guitars and I have to admit that this one really feels comfortable to play. It is really a good value for the price and I highly recommend it for beginners.

One of the cons I noticed though is that when you bend the strings too often when playing, it tends to go a bit out of tune but no problem apart from that. I am very happy with the purchase. It sits very beautifully on the guitar stand and does not look cheap at all.

Everyone should have one.

What can you expect for ¤39? It is hard to believe that any guitar can be made for that sort of money, but as other have said, no one will believe you when you tell them that the guitar they are playing actually cost that little. The sound is that of a much more expensive guitar and the finish is not too bad - but still more than acceptable for the price.

Many inexpensive guitars have dreadfully finished frets which, in some cases, can cut your fingers as you slide across them. Not this one. The frets are finished as nicely as guitars costing twenty times the price. The machine heads hold the tune perfectly well and the intonation is fine playing chords from the nut ( I haven't checked it much higher up ).

This one lives in a church for general use and has stood up to the wear and tear without any signs of deterioration - so far.

Murad, 23.07.2013
This guitar is fine as a start, however its finishing is so so, and it's sound is fine but materials are extra low quality.
I also found a crack in the wood inside it that acts as a bridge, not a big problem, but its fine for a start.

UPDATE, 2 years later and the guitar is in a good state. I changed the strings once and replaced the plastic nut and saddle with buffalo bone nut and saddle and it sounded better. however the sound is still not fancy, because of the wood quality and type i guess.
