Does it's job well enough, is sturdy and comes with a nice carrying case and replacement strings. I takes a little while to get used to the overall size and placement of the strings (it's not even close to the "dimensions "of a real guitar), but once you get used to it, it's just fine. Remember this product is JUST for finger placement. It does NOT produce sound. You have grooves to strum if you need that stimulae to help with your switching chords timing too, so that's pretty nifty. The high e string is super, super, super thin, but it's not that big of a deal.
