This is definitely grounds for a "Item significantly different..." it'* possible he shipped you the wrong thing.

I can't imagine a $10 full size guitar, though. Let alone a playable one. I have a couple guitars, and my cheapest decent one would be ~$80 now. The one in the video is a Ukulele, note the 4 strings

The tuners on that guitar look as if they are set up for steel strings, though, as compared to the "spindle" tuners on your alvarez, indicating it should take ONLY nylon classical strings. Putting nylons on a guitar with tuners like that is asking for them to get broken. It looks like he sent you a toy! :( Like they sent you a six-stringed Ukulele...

Good luck on getting what you wanted instead. Hopefully he'll send you the real item soon.

Here'* the link to the auction:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=350033001493

I saw in Guitar Center that guitar straps start at $30 or so, so a strap, case, strings, and even a tuner for the price was pretty good. Sure, the shipping is more than three times the price of the guitar, but even at that price, it'* still a good deal just for the accessories.

Gonneville, I'll see if I can get a video of another string exploding. The G string seems to be pretty good, so I'll see about breaking the A. I feel a bit bad, but I'll just replace the strings with some from a mixed broken set I have left over. It'll look really funny with the LARGE wound string at the end, but oh well.

I'm going to use some sound recording things to record something really strange. I have it, so I might as well.
