We purchased this guitar based on its color. My 6 year old loves pink. Her older brother has a few guitars and she wanted a pink one. For the Price, what the heck we bought it. This little guitar sound very nice and despite other reviews, The Tuners are great quality compared to others in this price range and one of the features that most impressed me. The Gretsch style "Zero" fret is a good cheap resolution to producing a quality sound out of this smaller ax. This may not be a good choice for playing on stage but for learning and coupled with the price, couldn't be better. This Guitar seems to be lying around in the living room and gets picked up and played almost more than our other guitars. My daughter is learning open chords, power chords and fingering with this guitar. She learned "Wild thing" the other day and that is her first song. I wouldn't hesitate to buy anther one and would recommend it to anyone looking for a beginner guitar for a child.

I read the mixed reviews on this guitar and I have to say I have to go with the other folks that gave it a low review. I bought this guitar as a starter for my seven year old daughter. I am a guitar player myself and I am sorely disappointed. #1 I was actually looking for a nylon based guitar and this a steel string. Something any novice guitar purchaser should know but the description does not tell you. 2nd as I began to tune it it would not tune easily and immediately popped a string!! I was barely even near the correct note!! 3rd I could hear the buzzing sound everyone has been talking about. I am taking it back and will spend the extra $30 for a decent instrument. If you are serious about getting your child started on playing, pay the extra it's worth it. Otherwise go extra cheap and go to Toys R Us and buy the $20 one it will save you the money.

This Guitar Is The Best I Have ever used!

By SportyGRocks

from Diamond Bar, CA

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

I have used this guitar as my beginner guitar. It is perfect for young ones to learn with. If parents are thinking to get a beginner guitar for their child this is the one. I bought the black kind since i love black and when i got it it was the best thing i ever heard. It is easy to play and create music with it.

Won't Tune At All

By Explorer64

from Stroudsburg, PA

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

Purchased this guitar for my 8 year old daughter...kept it for about 3 weeks, to sort it out. The guitar would not hold tune. Took it to a musician friend of mine to test it out..same result...would not hold tune, so I returned it...currently looking around for a better starter guitar that does hold tune.

lovely and high quality

By happy mom

from park forest,il

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

when purchase arrived I was shocked to see the excellent quality. my daughter is 7 and this will be her first guitar. I wanted to expose her to it without spending an arm and a leg for something she may or may not like long term. I actually had already returned two guitars to toys r us because of their poor quality (they both broke before I got them out the box). They claim to be real acoustic guitars, but this one absolutely put it to shame. She will be thrilled to get this christmas and I'm happy cause I got great quality at a very affordable price.

Great for a Beginner!

By Nicole

from Portage, Ind.

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

We ordered this for a six year old that has been practicing on a full size Electric guitar, and she absolutely loves it! It is a perfect starter guitar. It is very easy for her to handle, rather than struggling with a full size guitar. I am very happy with this product. The price is very reasonable, considering the Mini-Aoustic will soon need to be upgraded in a few years.

bad to the good

By sunshine

from Massillon, OH

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

My Grandparents bought me this as my first guitar and I love it!! Pink is definitely me and I can't wait to start my lessons with it. The only bad thing is that when I put the guitar in the grid bag it always goes out of tune. My brother gave me one of his guitar stands and I put it there now.

Perfect for the kids.

By pookie

from houston, tx

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this for 6 and 3 year old to play around with and they absolutely love it. its a perfect size for them and the neck is small enough for them to reach all the strings. Its really light weight compared to how solid and well put together it is. It could easily be sold for three times its price. And the sound quality makes it more impressive. The only bad thing i have say about it is that it isnt made with the pegs to put a shoulder strap onto it which is a bummer. But for 60 bucks you still cant beat it.

Dean Playmate Mini- Acoustic

By Jessica

from Long Beach

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

I am satisfied with the way that the guitar plays and the way it can be handled by a child. Unfortunately, I wanted the Natural Gloss finish and it was sent to me without gloss finish twice! The Guitar Center staff was very helpful and cooperative with me as I went through the exchange process. I wound up with the PinkBurst which luckily arrived to me with a gloss finish and made my young guitar player very happy. Thanks!! BTW, It's a great sales price!!

Daughter's B-Day Gift

By Chrissy

from Littleton, CO

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

Our 8 year old daughter wants to learn guitar. We researched options and chose this based on reviews, availability, price and color -she chose black. She's extremely happy. The fit is great and the case to carry it is essential. Super fast service from Guitar Center. Next purchase will be a tuner.

Almost Perfect

By ZoAnn

from Fontana, CA.

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

My seven year old son can hold it perfectly. He enjoys strumming and is able to do it easily with this guitar. The only problem is we noticed it is a little twangy. Otherwise its almost perfect!

Very Good

By sammyem9393

from West Valley, Utah

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar is very good. I have the classic black and I bought it so I can take it to school with me and it will fit in my locker. I haven't played my other guitar much since. The only problem I've had is that it doesn't stay in tune very well but that's no big deal. I enjoy the tone of this guitar as well as the portability. I would suggest getting a better quality guitar if you plan to use it for any major performances but for just jamming with your friends it's great.

By Ashley Kim

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar is the best guitar I've ever seen and they should make it a five star guitar. I love this guitar bcause of the features it has and it is the right size and color for me and I would like to tell all my friends about this guitar that they should have a guitar like this because it is so cool and they would love to have one to even if they don't want a guitar.

Smashable

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

This is not the kind of guitar i would give any one as a gift, maybe as a joke though. This is the kind of guitar i would smash after a show.

Great guitar - for about a year

By Lu Ann

from Flower Mound, TX

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

We loved this guitar - purchased it for our granddaughter's birthday. She loved it too. However, after about a year one of the gears in the tuning peg stopped working. We have dismantled it trying to determine what is wrong but cannot "see" any visible sign of why it won't work. The result is the high E string cannot be tuned, just lays there limp, because we cannot wind it up on the peg. If you're looking for something to last longer than a toy, I would steer clear of this one.

No Way!

By Joe Soulagnet

from Gresham, OR

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

My grand daughter told me she wanted to learn how to play the guitar but her fingers are too small to play an adult sized guitar. I had no idea what the market had to offer but I had played a couple of Dean guitars over the years and was very satisfied with the quality of instruments they produced. As an experienced guitar player of fourty years I was blown away by the sound coming from this little guitar when it arrived. The quality of this little marvel is unique in beginning musical instruments. You will not be dissapointed with this excellent purchase!

Great for beginners

By Lori B

from Victorville, CA

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this for my son not realizing that it is a smaller size. We ended up giving it to my step daughter instead and it was perfect for her. It is the perfect size and it is well made and has a beautiful sound.

This guitar is nothing more than a decoration.

Comments about Dean Playmate JT 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar:

Purchased this guitar for my 8 year old daughter...kept it for about 1 day. The guitar would not hold tune. I returned it...currently looking around for a better starter guitar that does hold tune. This guitar is nothing more than a decoration. Can not believe that Dean puts their name on it!
