I bought this guitar for my 13 year-old daughter. She broke both cords the first day. At first, I thought this was her fault but then I got a replacement cord and I broke it too. The mini USB is not sturdy enough to handle normal and careful use. I had just rested the bottom of the guitar against my hip and it bent. Bad bad design.
Ordered and paid for shipping as it is never in stock at my local apple stores. I wanted decent guitar but bought this one based on good reviews and the fact that it was "all in one" and I planned on using it with Garage Band. This was not my first guitar so I know how to handle them. I gingerly took it out of the box, unwrapped it and plugged it in. For the first five minutes, I loved it. Then it started cutting out every ten strums or so and then every five and then it stopped working. I got about 10 minutes of careful, seated use out of it and now have to go through the hassle of refund or replacement for a product I have no faith in. Buy a real guitar and don't waste your time or money on this one. Shame on Apple, it's like they have stopped all QC. While I know they didn't make the product, they are the sole distributors and therefore should be responsible for inflicting this garbage on people.
