From The Manufacturer

Designed for beginners, this acoustic guitar arrives ready-to-play, right out of the box. The traditional, classic body style is great for students and teens learning to play guitar. Designed with high-quality tonewoods, the top, back, and sides are crafted from basswood for versatility and warmth with a high-gloss finish for a polished and professional look. This acoustic guitar is ideal for beginners. Featuring (18) finished frets, (6) pre-installed steel strings, easy-to-use tuners, and a comfortable neck. Note, the guitar will arrive out-of-tune because the installed strings are new. This is normal. After the guitar has been played for a few weeks, the strings will begin to stretch and will require less tuning while playing.
