Fender’s upgraded MA-1 mini acoustic and MC-1 mini classical guitars now provide an improved playing experience akin to that of more expensive full-size instruments.
These great-sounding, solidly built 3/4 size guitars are perfect for school music programs, individual students and beginners who are more comfortable with a smaller guitar. New features include upgraded tuners for more stable intonation, a gig bag to protect the instrument on its way to and from lessons and school, Fender headstock logo, and back and sides made from a beautifully grained tropical wood called sapele, which produces a sweet, full tone.

I am a 7th grader who studies and plays acoustic guitar in his free time. In our music class, we use this very same guitar for classes. I am not sure if the guitars are not treated properly, but when any string is picked, the sound barely lasts 4 seconds. No matter how hard you strum, it sounds rather silent compared to a standard acoustic guitar (steel string or nylon). I do understand that this is commonly used as a trainer/student's guitar, and that is the specific use that I aimed to review here.
