Loog Mini Black
The box it came in was pretty beat up and was loosely packed in bubble wrap. However, after we opened it up, the guitar seems to be great quality. My son is only 3 so I'm not sure how well it will hold up to such a young kid but he loves to play with instruments and if we can get him to be careful and gentle with it, it might just be something he could pass onto his kids some day. Thanks Loog
Great for what it is!
I waited a few months to write this to make sure not to "honeymoon" this review. When you purchase this guitar, realize you are not buying a guitar from a large name manufacturer, but from a company that used kickstarter to get themselves off the ground. I would put money on the fact that Loog drop ships the guitars purchased from Amazon and other online retailers, so they are getting to you pretty much right from the factory. The guitar may still smell like lacquer (only for about a week or two until it finishes curing), may have a bump or large dent in the shipping packaging (mine did), and may not have the same Q/C as say a PRS custom shop - it's ok. It's a SMALL guitar for kids under $100 made over seas, for a small/newer musical supply company, shipped to your door, and not tested or q/c'd buy a reseller - like say sweetwater. It may sound "boxy" or like a plastic Ukelele, but the guitar IS IN FACT the same size as a Ukulele and has a fair amount of finish on it... Now that we are on the same page, I love this thing. I literally keep it sitting either on my ottoman or on my desk in the office Mine stays in tune rather well and I rarely tune it while living in humid south Florida. I did have to get the nut and bridge filed as the action is very high. I bought this guitar for myself to travel with or sporadically jam on. Other than the action being high, it is a great beginner instrument - minor adjustments needed.
Perfect size for our almost 2 year old that wants to play the guitar just like his Dada- the app for Loog is also very user friendly.
Good beginer guitar
This is a fun way to learn, especially since I can't teach my daughter since I have no idea how to play a real guitar. This is much simpler and provides her satisfaction that she is learning to make music. Only having the 3 strings has made it easier for her to manage and is encouraging her to keep learning.
My 5 year old loves hers
We originally ordered the Loog 2 but they discontinued it and sent us this. It is so sturdy and beautiful. My 5 year old is excited to learn to play with it. It is small but it fits really well for her (she’s tall for her age as well). I recommend this to anyone trying to teach their littles.
