The Valencia classical guitar is a good quality, well engineered student instrument. It is extremely popular with beginners of all ages and comes complete with all you need to get started.
Classical guitars have 3 nylon strings and 3 steel wound strings, which is a good combination for younger players as the nylon material is more gentle on the fingers. The instrument has an impressive string speaking length of 648mm, (this is the part that actually vibrates to make the sound - so the bigger the better) and the combined with a Graphtec Nubone saddle gives good sustain and rich harmonics.
The instrument is produced from laminated spruce, which saves money, (solid wood is reserved for more expensive instruments), but is nicely put together none-the-less and for a beginner instrument sounds very good indeed.
