My (daughter's) first guitar Dec 28, 2007
By M. Steckiel
We purchased this guitar for our 5 year old daughter's first foray into guitar playing. The problem we ran into was this: you either buy a 30 dollar piece of junk, or a $350, serious guitar. Since she's 5, we were on the lookout for something in the middle of the range. Luna is apparently a company that makes guitars only for girls, and so we gave them a whirl. The guitar is OK- doesn't have great sound, but it is tunable and her guitar teacher can play it and make it sound pretty good. It's mainly plastic- not a lot of wood, if any. Bear in mind, this is a "my first" type of instrument that won't break the bank and will last long enough to see if your little rocker will hang in there with the lessons. The fairy is cute- a totally girly guitar, without a doubt! Just not an heirloom, by any stretch. We'll probably upgrade her in about a year.

My kids love it Aug 31, 2007
By Monica Moody
I bought this guitar for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I'm sure someone is reading this and thinking to themselves why pay 70 bucks for a guitar for a 3-year-old? I asked myself the same question, and the answers I came up with are:
1. Because she wanted a guitar.
2. Because she loves music, and though she may not be ready for lessons NOW, it's a great time to foster her interest in it.
3. Because I don't want her (and her 2-year-old brother) playing with my $1000 guitar.
4. Because it's an instrument, not a toy.
5. Because it is put together well enough to last for a while.
6. Because it's pink and girly with a fairy on it!
7. Did I mention she wanted a guitar?
The Luna Aurora isn't a high-dollar artist series or professional guitar. The tuners aren't the best, but it's fun to play and has a decent sound... much better than other guitars of the same type/size on the market. I'm sure it will be around considerably longer than would a $25 toy guitar from a discount store.
I'd seen photos (elsewhere) of this guitar with a pink gig bag, but the bag that comes with it is actually black.
Bottom line - I'm happy with the purchase, and my daughter LOVES it.

Great REAL starter guitar Jan 10, 2010
By M. J. Duquette
I have played guitar for about 18 years and when my 5 year old daughter wanted to start playing I wanted a guitar for her which would stay in tune, be easy to play (low string action small neck radius) and be the right size. I looked around and came across this one. Read the reviews and agree with all the good things people had to say. This is a medium quality guitar. For the price point is a GREAT buy. Not just a toy from chain store. This thing works and I find myself jammin out on it prior to her taking her turn.

awesome little guitar Sep 30, 2008
By star child
The guitar was for my niece's 7th birthday...she is petite, so it's perfect in size. She wants to learn guitar and has scheduled lessons. I play guitar myself, and it tuned well. I think it's a wonderful starter instrument for a small child just getting started. She loves pink and fairies too, so that makes it more exciting. My only complaint would be that there was small defect on the front of the guitar and also, was disappointed to get a black carrying bag instead of a pink one as the description mentions.

Super cute, but plays terrible Sep 10, 2011
This guitar is really cute, love the artwork. It made me sad that I had to return it due to the fact it wouldn't tune. Should be only $20 guitar. If you are serious about wanting your child to play I don't recomend it.If you want an expensive toy this is it.
