Labeled MODEL #JR15N. The description on the box is as follows:

Guitarist will appreciate the easy playability of this 36″ acoustic guitar. The guitar tunes easy and holds the tune, allowing the musician to continue on playing. The JR15 features a spruce top, nato back and sides, rosewood fingerboard, steel reinforced neck, and a natural gloss finish. Free nylon guitar bag included!

I admit I only bought this as a cheep practice piece but got more than I expected. The woodwork (and selection) was far better than I expected for a low-cost student guitar. Despite the resonator’s smaller size, it is effective right where it needs to be. The included nylon strings are great, the fingerboard/frets feel good, and the sound is remarkable.

Of course, it’s not a Stradivarius. Low-cost features include: plastic parts (anchor, bridge, nut, pegs), the rosary is a sticker, no pick guard (not that it needs one),no neck-strap attachments, and the brass gears of the machine heads can warp under normal tension. The steel reinforced neck is not readily adjustable but for me was not a problem. It is probably the same as the steel string model but don’t take my word for it. (I should advise beginners against ever using steel strings on a folk guitar.) The size is fine for a child 6-11 or as a tinker toy for adults like me; but for students age 12 and over, might I recommend the 41″Full Size Acoustic Guitar with Free Carrying Bag – Natural. Did I mention the sound is remarkable? Overall I am very satisfied with this product.
