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.

You can believe it when you play it======Smooth, clear easy to fret.
Reluctant to buy anything of lesser value these days so took a chance and bought the DR-100 vintage sunburst. As I have had my J-45 Gibson for yrs. and needed a drag around guitar to keep from damaging my prize J-45. In just a few days I got the Dr-100. Never have I been so pleased with a purchase. I started looking for flaws and shortcuts as most of us musicans do. LOL comes with the beast. I found nothing. So I tuned and started finger picking as I do with my other guitar. D-4 martin. Wow---Smooth and no rattles. The tone was sweet and clear. Neck board just right! Next I choose a song with lots of rough chords and strum. Picking flat in and out of the tune. No rattle. Now I am thinking there most be something. Nope. I bought the stand the picks the strap all for a great price. Setting the J-45 next to the Dr-100 and the build is almost exact. This is unheard of for the quality of the DR-100---Neck is like a fender mustang. Sound is like the J-45. Getting rid of my old war club--D-4 martin with it's spliced neck ---Folks this is a super made fitted guitar. I hope this review helps out. Great for beginners and Pro's alike. Even half-axx'ed as myself. KIM
The entire body was well place togerther. Extened head with tuner keys exact. Noticed the sound hole cut was perfect. Large and finished molding cut polished heavily. Full size strap connectors installed without blemish.
Value is unheard of these days.

    Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

    Bought this guitar a couple of months ago, was surprised at how well it was packaged and shipped. The guitar is one of the best I've ever played, and I have played more expensive guitars .
    This guitar ranks up there with them.
    Great instrument at a great price. Musicians Friend is the Best.

    Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

    Gettin back into playing after many years off with this entry level instrument. They sure don't make beginner's guitars the way they used to & in this regard I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. When I think back to my first Elvis (not Costello) wannabe axe which was totally unplayable. This puppy is a thousand miles ahead. Then again that cherrywood unknown c. 1959 was only twenty bills -- when gas was about .10 a gallon. Adjusted for all the years of inflation, this guitar is a steal!

      Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic 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 got this as a Christmas gift, and it was well set up right out of the box! It has great tone, plays easily, and was clean inside and out. I did change the strings to some Martin SP lights, and sounds like a much more expensive guitar now. I had a guitar tech friend look it over, and he could not beleive how good is sounds for what I paid for this instrument. I'm happy! Buy this now!

                  Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

                  If you think you are going to get something that is built and sounds like a Martin D-28, you will be disappointed. But for a hundred clams, this is a very, very nice guitar. It plays in tune. Has a very full "woody" sound, and I think with a change to quality strings, you would have a guitar that sounds much more expensive. It is really put together well and I applaud Epiphone for the way they have improved their building of guitars. Yea, the action could be dropped a hair, but I don't know if I'll bother. It's pretty good as is. Plus, it's a nice slight workout, and when you get on your electric...you will fly. Like I said, a hundred clams. How can you go wrong. Again, a switch to quality strings will ease the tension and improve the sound.. And we all spend too much time trying to get an acoustic as low an action as our electric. Forget about it and play the instrument. It's nice, it's fun and it's only a hundred clams. Sorry to use the word "clams" but come on guys , we all want to know about value. why put these silly word restrictions on us?.
