I have owned this guitar for 13 years now. I own five acoustic guitars and have been playing for 50+ years. This guitar is second only to my old Martin. The sound, build quality and playability are right up there with the best of them. I had one pro setup performed on this guitar years ago right after I bought it, just to get it professionally tweaked, knowing I would then get the best out of this guitar that is had to offer. I have only changed strings when needed and nothing also done to it since the pro setup years ago. It stays in tune...is always cased when I'm done playing it and take very good care of it. Those Luthiers in China built a very nice guitar in this one. The quality is amazing. The sound is huge, deep and very clear with sparkling highs. It's always been very easy to play and looks, feels and sounds like a guitar costing over $1k. This guitar gets played more than any other of my acoustics, yes, even more than my old Martin. I've often felt they must have made a big mistake building a guitar this good for so little money. I would never consider selling this guitar. It's truly a keeper and going to be a hand-me-down someday when one of my kids inherits it.
- Was this a gift?:
I'm picking up the guitar for the first time in 20 years, so I wanted a nice little acoustic to help me "get back on the horse." With my Epi electric still in the case I ordered this nice little low end model with very few expectations other than it has 6 strings. When I opened the box I was almost overwhelmed with how much guitar $200 gets you. Beautiful finish, very nice quality of construction, and a very full sound all for $200. You can't beat the value this guitar offers. I've had no problem with it staying in tune and the action is not too bad as shipped. Really can't find a single negative to say about it. It doesn't have the same quality of sound as I've heard from instuments in the $1000 and up range, but it's on even ground with anything I've ever heard under $500. Overall 5 stars.
I love this guitar. I regret not buying new because my only problem is that the neck bows back toward the sting right around the 13th fret. Consequently, the 14th fret of the G is mute entirely. 13th and 15th work fine. Other than that, incredible guitar for the price and a beauty too.
I bought this guitar about three years ago and I was happy with it from the start. The setup and playability were superb, and the fit and finish were what drew me to it. Since then, I have been using it in a country band, playing old Hank and Buck covers, and it has performed great. I'm a rhythm player in an electric band, so tonal demands aren't a high priority; if I were going to get into some fingerstyle or purely acoustic suff, I would probably look for a higher end guitar that might offer more tonal nuance. That said, this guitar is balanced and offers a nice upper register that cuts through the mix. I fitted it out with a Fishman Matrix, and that has worked out fine. The guitar stays in tune, is very playable , the vintage sunburst finish is beautiful. I almost bought a Masterbuilt, but it didin't really outperform this guitar for money. I recommend this guitar.
I wanted a couple guitars to add to my collection...two to be exact. So I bought this one and a Martin SWOMGT. Interesting way to compare two instruments. I have never played either one until I got them so it was a nice way to compare playability and sound. Of course the Martin speaks (literally) for itself. However, this DR-200S is an awesome buy. I grew up playing an Epiphone acoustic throughout the 70s and all through the 80s. That guitar is long gone...just plain wore it out. This DR-200S is a step or two above that one. But it plays wonderfully well and sounds, well, like a nice dreadnaught. I use XLs so I immediately changed them. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. The sides and back are a beatiful hue and the grain is well defined. The pickguard is a light tortoise shell (not black). Made in China. Nice guitar to throw in a HSC and lug around. Money well spent
I have just received two of these guitars that I ordered for friends of mine. I have several much more expensive acoustic guitars myself. Overall I think them of exceptional build quality. There is however one caveat: They both came with extremely high action. (Im am a very experienced player and have done a lot of set-up on guitars and I know what players want. If chords played in the 1st position are out of tune because of the increased pull down to the frets, the action is too high.) I assume they are this way so that individuals can set the action where they want and some may want them high like this, but you should be aware that you'll probably have to spend some additional money to get them set up properly. Having said that, they are still great values, even after the set-up fee is added on.
this is my first acoustic and it is amazing the sound is great it is very loud and the money is good i would recommend this to anyone.
Great acoustic. This is the first acoustic that I have owned and I am very satisfied with it. Nice tone, great action, and looks very nice. The price is great too.
The quality of this guitar is great. so is the tone, and the beautiful wood finish. I highly recommend it to a beginning guitarist, or even a second guitar.
I've had this guitar for about 6 months now. This is my first acoustic, although I've played guitar for about 2 years. I bought it because a friend of mine has one also, so I knew what I was getting. For the price, the guitar has great tone and action. It came ready to play out of the box. I put elixir strings on it and it sounds great. I don't have any complaints about this guitar, and would recommend it as a starter guitar or as a first or even second acoustic.
