        In short, a piece of useless junk. I nearly cut my self on the fret ends, no point in trying to tune it, you can't and even if you could SO WHAT ?
        They seem to leave out the part about NOT BEING ABLE TO STRUM THE THING !! In the, "Happy videos" you see someone "playing" it, while others look on, entertained. By what, there's NO SOUND ! Just a piece of plastic with 6 raised lines, that you can pretend to strum>
        And most importantly, IF THERE IS NO SOUND, OR WAY TO PLAY THE STRINGS, YOU CANNOT PRACTICE WITH IT !!!!!!! WHAT POSSIBLE GOOD IS FRETTING A STRING, WHEN YOU CAN'T HERE IF YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT.? YOU COULD BE PLAYING THE CHORD WRONG AND NEVER KNOW IT. SO I ASK YOU,....IS THAT PRACTICING, NOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!
        NOT a practice ,....anything ! And even if you could tune it, the 3rd fret, would in essence be the 12th fret, because it is half way (presumably) between the nut and saddle.

                  Better manufacturing should take care of the multiple sharp fret ends. Don't think I can recommend this model, but let's see if you get one for a ukulele worth owning.

                  I gave this as a gift thinking that it would be perfect for my guitar playing husband. He loved it at first. But when he realized he couldn't actually play it like a mini guitar he quickly lost interest. He's had it for a week and has already been looking at mini guitars, and I've found this in the junk drawer.

                          My husband plays guitar and I thought this would be a cool item for him to take with him to "practice" in his spare time. It was not at all what I thought it was. It is more of a toy than anything. I'm disappointed and so is he.

                          Purchased this as a gift for my son who has been playing guitar for 16 years. If anything, it's unique and a bit of a 'gag' gift. Cannot comment on how useful this will be for a left-handed player though; a live chat online with a customer service rep said it worked for both left and righ-handed players.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          I'm concerned about the packaging for this product. It was shipped in a cardboard sleeve with no protection. I haven't given it to the recipient yet, so it hasn't been opened and tried out, but the way it was shipped seems like it could be damaged.
                          There is no outward display of damage, but if this "instrument" is delicate on the inside, it could easily be ruined.

                          Great to learn all the notes on the neck of the guitar I have used your product on planes, in the car, and in hotel rooms it has made a difference in not only in my time I can practice away from home since I travel so much, but in the mental preparation to get to where I want to go. Picking up the guitar at home then becomes more enjoyable as I haven't missed practice time,,
