Ibanez SGT120 Sage Series Acoustic Guitar

No longer available at zZounds
Get started right with this acoustic guitar. The SGT120 includes many features often only found on more expensive acoustics.
Ibanez's newest acoustic series, the SGT or Sage Traditional, is another breakthrough by Ibanez in offering more high-end features at more affordable prices. The SGT120's mahogany neck and spruce top offer a solid foundation for the budding acoustic guitarist. Originally inspired by the impressive selection and quality of Ibanez's "1st Golden Age of Acoustics" of the mid-'70s and very early '80s, the SGT Series features 3 basic body shapes: dreadnought, jumbo, and grand concert. Beautiful Sunburst finishes and Natural high gloss finishes combined with large classic pickguards contribute to the SGT's understated vintage styling. In appearance, sound, and playability, the SGT120 sets a new benchmark in entry-level guitars.

"Best quality for the best price! GET THIS GUITAR IF YOU'RE A BEGINNER!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
With enough care i give to it, and as sturdy as it looks ( i dont expect to drop it to review if it broke or not), I would eventually move on to another guitar, Like i stated before, the sound is default, when i get to know my chords more, im looking for a warmer sound, of course im not going to sell this guitar but one day when i have a kid, it would be a great learning guitar for him/her as well to pass down.

Sound
The sound is beautiful, then again I am a beginner, I have plenty of friends who have been playing guitar for YEARS and told me to buy this guitar because of its price and quality. Well it is cheap and probably one of the best Acoustic guitars that you can buy for beginning. The sound in my opinion isn't warm or too vibrant, it seems a bit default compared to other guitars, but like i said, its a beginners guitar, use this guitar to learn your notes and how to play, and if you choose to stick with it like my friend who has for several years, you can still make it sound incredible. Then again its not ONLY the guitar, its the player, and the players inspiration to master the chords. All in all, get this guitar. It's well worth it

Quality
Extremely high quality for the price. And it does go well with tours haha

Manufacturer Support
No problems with the guitar, didn't have to deal with them yet.

The Wow Factor
Like i said its a cheap guitar, read more the quality is high. But seriously, this is a "pretty" guitar. But it's not the "Rico Suave" of guitars. Personally I like the guitar look as it is, its simple, it sounds great, why do you need a flashy guitar?
