Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (39 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Sound, Versatility, Quality, Value: this guitar has it all"
Sound: Top quality at an affordable price. I love this guitar. It's just so much fun to play. Great roots/surf twang off the bridge pickups. Nice fat crunch off the middle and neck pickups. Very versitile guitar. NOT just for country/roots. Even sounds decent when it's not plugged in. When was the last time you could use a "whammy" with your acoustic? You can't go wrong with this guitar and you can buy it without saving up for a year or so. Feature: While I absolutly love this guitar, the tuning pegs/machine screws are cheap. The guitar stays in tune, but they are just thin, cheap, and look out of place on such a finely made instrument. The Bigsby is terrific! I know a lot of people complain about the clear pick guard. It's a pick guard people. Remove it, replace it, or stop complaining. Personally, I don't have a problem with it. Should come with a case though. Ease of Use: No mysteries with this guitar. I'm a novice player and I had no problem with this guitar at all. It's terrifically easy to play. Very versitile and forgiving. Quality: This is a relatively lower cost guitar right? You would never know it from the quality. Just terrific from top to bottom, (with the exception of the tuning pegs). Yes, it's made in Korea. So is your car. Stop worrying about it. You can't go wrong here. Value: This guitar is a tremendous value. Sound, quality, looks, it's all there and for under a grand. I own other, higher priced, guitars. But this one is the one I play more of ten than not. Fun and inspiring. Manufacturer Support: No experience. The Wow Factor: I am biased as I own this guitar, but I gotta say the thing is beautiful. I own the hot "country orange" and it's a damn fine looking guitar. Sounds even better than it looks. Overall: Love it.

"PUT YOUR HANDS ON THIS GUITAR AND SAY "MINE"!"
Sound: I'm a bass player and I bought one...but really loved it when my friend came over and player it like it should be played! The sound is great very full and yet switching from strumming to picking does let the sound get buried. Feature: Super and I too agree the tuners had me stopping for a minute...they are thin...would like a bit heavier cast set of tuners. Ease of Use: The sound I get - is the sound I was looking for...and the ease of playing finished off the sale! Quality: Tuners...pickguard minor issue...clear?!? What's up with that!!?? Value: Not cheap... but a good instrument. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: Sex appeal...not to me! But eye appeal...100% Overall: I will keep it. I would only get another guitar that offers a different body and tone.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
