The DR-100 Acoustic Guitar has the looks, quality and sound of an expensive guitar. With chrome hardware, precision construction, and rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, this is a great guitar for the price. Overall I've been very pleased with it and 100% satisfied. No need to replace the strings on this black beauty. Very happy with the shipping too.

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.

    Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

    Yet another surprising Epiphone value....it might sound like I'm being paid for this, but I keep buying Epi acoustics and electrics just because they are an incredible value.(five) Had many Gibsons, don't find any difference, except the price.

      Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

      This was a nice buy and was very pleased. Would buy another one if needed. The other reviews stated neck had warping problems, and there is a little but not enough to be concerned with. Was able to adjust truss rod,which will need to done , and also the screws on tuning keys will need to be secured at same tightness or they will never stay in tune. Mine so far has not lost tune in two weeks and I play it daily. I gave this guitar a high rating based on low price and excellent sound . I have been playing for years and have handlled many. Yes, change the strings. I started with martins and they do well.

      Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

      I bought this used from another seller. I wanted an art project guitar -- something to custom paint and hang on the wall for decoration.

      It was described as having a bad neck set, and I paid half of the price of a new one. However, I was surprised at how minor the issue is. The neck is slightly warped, but this only affects notes on two frets of the high E string. Otherwise, it plays very well. The bridge is solid. There is low action right out of the box.

      Yes, the strings are cheap, and yes, the sound is flat. Yes, the tuners are on the cheap end -- but you can't expect anything more from a guitar at this price. It feels and plays well, stays in tune, and the sound is better than most guitars in this price range. For the money, it's a good value for a beginner, or as a second guitar to take to the beach or play around the campfire.

      Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

      Bought this guitar a few years back for playing around the house. It sounds great, and considering it's relatively inexpensive price tag I think this is a great guitar to start on. One of my tuning heads eventually fell off because the screws didn't hold. And one small fall and the neck cracked, ruining the action. If you're a serious player, I'd spend a little more and get something else.

      Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

      The overall construction and the fitment and finish of the DR-100 are outstanding. The sound is quite good, as is the playability. I've spent hundreds more for guitars that weren't half as good as this one. I don't understand how Epiphone (Gibson) makes a profit on these guitars, they are indeed that good.

      Not a bad buy for the price. Had fret buzz on the High E and B strings from the 8th to the 18th fret. With a fret dress and little setup it plays very well and sounds pretty good. Excellent beginner guitar or travel companion.

      Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

      The Epiphone DR-100 arrived by UPS delivery only 5 days from ordering and was super impressed with how professionally it was packaged A+. I didn't expect to see a high gloss finish on the vintage sunburst model that looks great. The factory installed strings were in near perfect tuning when I took the guitar out of the box and still sound ace after a week of constant playing. This guitar not only sounds better than I anticipated but has nice string action and is comfortable to play. Don't get mislead by the discount price. The DR-100 is a a best seller for more reasons than just the price.

            Great guitar for the price. Well made for a guitar from China. Holds its tune well and has a full sound for a budget priced instrument. The real value in this is Musician's Friend. I would not buy any instrument from anywhere else. They back up everything they sell. If you're not happy they will make it right.

              I got this in vintage sunburst as my first guitar and it is still in great shape a year in a half later. Since then I have an Ibanez grx70qa electric and I just ordered a Yamaha fs720 folk acoustic, both from Musicians Friend. They are by far the best people I have ever bought anything from and have amazing service. This guitar is great for beginners or just someone looking for a great guitar for a great price. It looks, feels, and plays like a dream and has helped me develop my skill over the years. It is still my go to guitar over my electric and I'll always buy my instruments and gear from musicians friend.
