I'm 56 years old and after playing in bands for over 35 years, I got tired of dealing with drama and egos and decided this year to just play Acoustic . I own 2 Fenders, a Mitchell , and now this very, under rated beauty . I'll be very honest here and that is, I used to think that this model was junk but now, the newer models that Epiphone is knocking out of the park from their factory in China , are really well made guitars . I have a Vintage Sunburst model that I got just a couple of days ago and I am totally amazed at both the build quality, and sound of this instrument . The only things that I did upon receiving it were to adjust the truss rod a bit , clean the fretboard with some Lemon Oil, and put on a set of Elixirs. This is a player which has a very nice, bright, tone to it, which you can use for sing a longs, trips to the beach, cookouts, etc. Plus the tuners that are now on it, are die cast thus allowing tuning stability which is something that the older models lacked IMO. This is one heck of a great bargain for either a beginner or the musician on a budget. I highly recommend this guitar !!!!

Quality Acoustic for first time owner. I've owned nothing but nylon and electric guitars up until this purchase. Although I've been playing 15+ years and can afford a Martin I thought it was more practical to start with a beginner steel string. Also knowing that I can take this camping and not worry about a case or wear & tear is a positive quality for me, since a future purchase will remain in the case when not played.

Ordered the guitar on a friday, received it on a tuesday. Needed new strings-I chose Martin. The Neck needed adjusting but I didn't want to take it in for adjusting, so based off a youtube tutorial I loosened the trust rod myself and it fixed the dead notes on the 3rd and 10th fret in a matter of 30 minutes. I also was brave enough to peel off the cheap black pickboard, the sunburst design looks a bit classier now. This guitar is perfect for learning new songs and practicing covers & originals. A fun guitar but nothing more.

        I am not a mussician; I bought it to keep at my home for my son and grandsons and brother to play when they're here. Our family loves to relax on our patio surrounded by nature and enjoy music on the guitar. My son sings. This is an absolutely beautiful guitar and I've made it part of our decor.

            The guitar is nothing but a toy.
            The sound has no bass response or projection. Advertising states that the guitar cuts through when playing with other guitars, but without sustain, the tinny tone can't compare to a Washburn at similar cost.

                I put a new set of Earthwood 012-054. I play a lot of blues and this is nice for my acoustic side. I recommend checking the truss rod adjustment.

                  I was a little apprehensive about buying a inexpensive guitar after playing a taylor for the last 10 years - I know how much easier a quality guitar is to play. I purchased this guitar to donate to a local ministry and after talking with the rep at Musicians Friend I thought I would give it a try. When I got the guitar in, I was pleasantly surprised at the playability. I was expecting the strings to be a mile above the frets and have to spend some time adjusting it, but that wasn't the case at all. I simply unpacked it, tuned it and began playing. I played it for about an hour to see if it would stay in tune and it did surprisingly good for brand new strings. It has a bright full sound. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a practice guitar or beginning student.

                      I play small venues with this Epiphone. Had a Les Paul Epiphone in mid 70's so I tried this one just because it was such a good value and I heard good things about it. Put Elixer light strings on it and a Tusq bridge and it sounds like Gibson Dove Deluxe. I sing pretty loud also and this gem balances out very well.

                        Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

                        A couple of weeks ago one of my students had this guitar sitting on a chair when it came loudly crashing to the tile floor. It landed on its top and broke the .010 E string. The bridge pins on the G, B, and E strings were pushed below where a pin puller (on a string winder) would not work. I used a small screw driver to encourage those pins out and put on a new set of strings. This guitar survived the fall with not cracks in the structure or finish. It tuned right up and seems none the worse for its ordeal. I am pleased and impressed with its toughness.

                          I bought this guitar in the Autumn of 2013 when I was teaching middle school aged students. I wanted an inexpensive guitar for them to use during instruction and to determine whether I would feel comfortable recommending it. It is a little heavier, the neck feels a little larger, and it has a different tone than my 10+ year old Martin, but I like it. It can be strummed, picked, and barre chorded. I've not noticed fret buzz, even with enthusiastic strumming. I like the sunburst finish and it held up well over 9 months of use. I just got it back out of the closet a few days ago after taking a year off from teaching. It tuned right up and seems to stay there very well. This really is a very nice guitar for the price.
