    good beginner/ beater guitar. With a bit of adjustments (new strings, setting neck relief, etc.) you can get it sounding pretty good.
    –J. Chuang, AL, USA

    I wasn’t expecting much for the price. When I opened the box to check out and tune the guitar, I was really pleased with the quality and beauty of this guitar,and it sounded really nice.
    –J.S. Thorson, Monticello, MN

    This guitar is better than any other other $90 guitar ive seen in guitar shops, and with some adjusting it could be very nice.
    –T. Bo

    True, if you’re a serious amateur or budding pro, this is not enough guitar for you; but if you’re just giving the idea of playing guitar a whirl, and your budget is limited, we don’t believe you can find a better instrument in this price point. Here are the honest pros and cons:

    The Good
    • A very nice sound for the price – most users really like it
    • Good warranty
    • Really affordable
    • A lot of positive comments by users
    • You can be playing guitar right away for less than $100 bucks!
    The Bad
    • You’ll probably need to install a new set of strings on it – expect that additional expense
    • Some users complain of too high an action, or string buzz on low notes, which means…
    • Many buyers will want to get it professionally adjusted – expect that expense, too
    • It ships relatively unprotected, and does not include a case (caveat emptor)

    If you can afford more for your guitar, you should consider one of the other guitars reviewed favorably on this site – we believe you’ll be glad you did. Also, check out Jasmine’s next guitar up, the S34C NEX as a better alternative for not much more money. But still, coming in at the most affordable level of guitars that can actually be considered instruments instead of toys, the Jasmine S35 remains a viable option for the budget-conscious amateur needing a beginner acoustic guitar.
