I’ve been a Martin owner for years and was looking for a smaller bodied guitar to introduce my 8 year old to playing. I took it out of the box a week ago and find myself reaching for this little gem more than my Martin. Setup is good out of the box and is a great size that just begs you to pick it up and play. Also for the price, I don’t feel bad about taking it outside or traveling with it.
I own two other Orangewood solid top guitars and am pleased with both, one steel sting, one nylon. This one is just as playable as those full size guitars. I purchased this for my 6 yr old grandson and I think its perfect for him. (He had an unplayable First Act guitar...) The detailing is exceptional. The only negative - I feel some roughness with string bends up the neck.
My teen son and I bought the Dana Mahogany Mini Guitar for a Father’s Day gift for my husband who’s mentioned on several occasions that he wished he knew how to play. He’s loving it! And working daily on learning a new skill!! Best gift we’ve done for him in YEARS!
I love my Dana Mahogany guitar! It has a beautiful tonal quality and I love the way it looks! The fretboard is so much easier to move around on than other guitars I’ve owned before. Thank you!
Great size for beginner and the action was pretty nice. I started playing with a full size but after getting my dana mini, I would definitely stick with this one!
