DIY Music Guitars
I bought these for my classroom at the end of the school year. My kids LOVED them. It was so fun to see their creativity AND my room was quiet for almost 45 minutes. They are lifesize and I would do this activity again in a heartbeat!!!!!

I purchased these guitars to use as decorations for my son's 5th Grade Dinner. They are doing a rock n' roll theme and I asked the Art teacher if the children could decorate them in class and then I plan to add a picture of the children in the center of each guitar. They are using markers, paint, mosaic paper tiles, gems, etc. I have seen a preview and they look great. The guitars will add a wonderful personal touch to our dinner decorations.

I loved the DIY Guitars for my preschoolers. We do a unit on Elvis Presley, so it is a perfect craft to go along with that.

I bought these for my daughter's 7th Rock Star birthday party, thinking it would be fun to do a "photo shoot" with the kids personalized guitars. The guitars were smaller than expected (I should have been clued in when a size wasn't given in the description) and they were very flimsy, so when you hold them up the neck doesn't "stand up"...card stock would of held up better than these.

fun but flimsy
My sons are guitar obsessed and wanted these to draw their own. These are basically just pieces of paper pre-cut in a guitar shape. They are heavier stock than normal computer paper (20lb) but not super heavy stock.
The good - the kids were very excited and with 10 of them, they can color several each.
The con - these are pretty small, and drawing guitar strings on them require a lot of thought and a long ruler. Because of the difficulty in making realistic looking strings, I had two very frustrated kids. So if you have kids who expect to be able to draw a realistic looking guitar on here, plan to help them extensively with the project. If your kids are happy with anything drawn, then they'll love this and won't need your help.

Guitar Cut Outs
The product was flimsy and needed reinforcement. The price was reasonable but the product is mediocre, especially for play with preschool aged children.

Too flimsey to use without back support
I purchased these for a year end program and although the design and size is perfect for little ones, these are made from a very thin poster board and are much too flimsey to use as a pretend quitar. I had to reinforce with long paint sticks glued to the back. The picture in the catalog makes it look like these are a sturdy cardboard. I don't think I would purchase these again.

Wasn't Happy with this purchase
Came as poster board not cardboard like it said.

Cardstock, not cardboard
These guitars are great for a creative project, but they are not cardboard. I expected something thicker. These are cardstock, which means as thick as a greeting card. That means they're light enough to hang on the wall, but floppy enough to feel flimsy and cheap.

Not what I expected
I was very disappointed in the guitars. I bought thirty of them for a nursery school music show and they were very flimsy. I had to reinforce all of them.
