I’m a beginner at guitar, but this one is easy to play and has good tone for a small instrument. It’s nice to have something you can take with you on trips. The neck is a little narrower that my full size guitar, so there is some adjustment. Also, the small body takes some getting used to. I think it is a great instrument for the price.

I found the guitar, for the money, an excellent purchase. My only regret is that I thought the guitar was sccoustic/electric. This conclusion was drawn by another person’s review, read before my purchase. Otherwise, no regrets. Would like to know if accoustic/electric is available, by Johnson.

This guitar is a bad little puppy and I know anyone who picks will have a lot of fun with it! I bought it for my locker so I could practice at work… regular sized locker. Compared to other similar travel size guitars, the Johnson was in my price-range and just the size I needed. I tuned it once and played the heck out of it. I checked the tuning several times while I was playing (the smaller and cheaper guitars are usually harder to keep in tune)and barely any adjustments were needed. I couldn’t believe it stayed in tune!! For some people it may be hard to get used to the small body, but I adjusted just fine. The neck of it is just a tad bit smaller than a full-sized acoustic, so I had to adjust my fingers closer together.

Mine came with a nice little gig bag, and a strap. The strings seem to be okay but for more advanced players I’d recommend replacing them right away. Also you will want to spray or lube the strings asap as they are pretty sharp. This doesn’t sound exactly like your full-sized acoustic of course, but it does sound really good for practice or any off-stage activity. This guitar would be great for over-head storage on a plane, locker storage, under the seat in a vehicle, or even under your desk at work. It’s extremely light too! I’m very happy with mine!
