    This was my first guitar,but I'm not some idiot that knows 3 chords haha. Anyway, let me just say that this guitar is the BEES KNEES! You heard me. I've played big name acoustics,some costing well over 10X this one,swear on my life. Out of the box with some ernie ball earthwoods,or elixrs if you wanna go big,this thing sounds UN-BE-LIEVEABLE, it has an incredible resonance and projection I haven't heard in $3000 guitars. It plays really, really well too, with a minimal of adjustments. Sure It does look "plain" but the woodgrain on the back and sides is beautiful,and its the sound that matters right?And I'm not just gushing because mines good,I've played about 5 more just like it,they're consistent as anything.It stays in tune amazingly enough.And it's tough as nails,its fallen 5 feet,right on the neck,and only barely chipped the back of the neck.I guarantee this will blow your mind,if it's your 1st guitar, or your 50th.

    For a first guitar, It's great. Don't get me wrong, has everything the starting guitarist needs (bag, picks, tuner, strings...). So it's definitely a good value. Once you start to get better, or at least halfway decent, you start to notice the imperfections. First off, It's made in China. Not that it means much but it kind of explains why it's so cheaply made. The frets buzz horribly, the tuners don't stay in tune very well, and it scratches extremely easily. That's okay if you want the seasoned look, but if you don't, it sucks. So depending on your skill and experience, you should consider what you pay for

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    This seems to be a quality instrument with a VERY nice sound - particularly for the price....It was purchased for my daughter for Christmas and I wasn't sure how interested she'd be about learning guitar. (she plays piano/keybord) I DO however have two sons that play guitar who have instruments in the 800-1200$ range, so I do know a quality instrument when I see/hear one! I was quite pleased!

    Good starter kit

    By Hodenkat

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    After you learn your open chords on this guitar you may find yourself struggling to play anything else. The action is just a bit too high and with no truss rod it's just a matter of time before this guitar ends up at a yard sale. It's really a shame since it carries the Fender name. That being said, it does have a nice tone and looks great, but as a long term buy it just doesn't seem to have the kind of playability that I feel is needed to keep me interested for years to come.
    I'm a new guitar player so I don't have a lot of experience with various brands. That's why I chose Fender. After reading a few reviews online I went with this one based on price and brand. The tone is great, and it stays in tune very well. Intonation seems good but I've only been playing it for two weeks.
    The finish and hardware are very nice for the money. If I had to look for an accoustic guitar again I would go to my local guitar shop though. I see other reviews that say better playing guitars are out there for the same money.
    At the end of the day, it comes down to how does this guitar feels and sounds. It looks like a more expensive model but plays like a $200 guitar. Remember, I'm a beginner and haven't had much experience with accoustic instruments!

    Good Guitar

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    Good
    7 is kind of high but you have to take into consideration the price
    Some plastic parts but otherwise constructed well. It's held up to 3 years of playing.
    I couldn't find a new guitar that sounded as well for the money

    My first guitar

    By Whatshisface1911

    from Salisbury, MD

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    This was my first guitar. I have loved it and as a beginner I found the guitar tuner to be very helpful. If you are only interested in the guitar itself, I have been much more impressed with Rogue guitars for the price range, but this guitar is not at all a bad buy.

    ehhh

    By martinowner897

    from Atlanta, Ga

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    I bought this guitar with hopes of having a second guitar to just beat around and play when I don't want my martin to get destroyed. This had potential to be that, but the neck was unplayable(even after a pro setup) and the sound was okay at best. There are much better guitars out there for 199.99. Even for a beginner I probably wouldn't reccomend this. I would tell that person to go get a used Breedlove passport. Much better guitars for the same price.

    A beginners-only guitar

    By Folkrock5

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    This is an okay guitar to learn on and it was my first guitar but it has a terrible sound and action. I tried lowering the action and the neck cracked right away and so did one of the strings. I would suggest beginners only use it and experienced musicians use the taylors and martins.

    Great guitar for decent price.

    By deathbydodgeball

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    I received this guitar as a present from my father for High School Graduation. I picked the guitar out(Back then it was just the DG-8 value pack). I had little experience with guitars in general and no experience with acoustic guitars. I am glad i choose this one. Ten years later it is still my go-to guitar. It is fairly beaten now, I tried adjusting the trus-rod myself and cracked the neck. I broke the nut. It has been all fixed since and I have upgraded it with high quality bridge pins and I have installed a soundhole pickup. I now also own a 1935 Gibson archtop (f-hole) and have played many other acoustic guitars including Taylor, Larivee, Blueridge, Washburn, Takimene, and others. I still love my Fender. If you are looking for a starter guitar I think this one is great (if they are built the same as when I got mine).

    Amazing!

    By Lo Bob5

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    I got this guitar last year for christmas since i wanted an acoustic. I didn't want my parents to buy a real expensive one becuase i had only been playing for a year, so i suggested this one. Man, I'm glad I did! First of all, the guitar sounds awesome! It easily competes with guitars that are a lot more expensive and is under half the price. The action is very good, and it looks very nice. Plus, the pack comes with everything you could possivly need. The only problem i have with it is the strap which comes loose fairly eaisly. Otherwise, i would highly recomend this!

    I'm Impressed, and Surprised

    By Junebug2009

    from Alabama

    Comments about Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Value Pack:

    I bought this guitar as a starter for my 11 yr old daughter. I didn't have high expectations, I just wanted something for her to beat around on to see if she would remain interested. I've been blown away at the quality of this guitar. It looks great and sounds really good. My main concern was that it would have good playability so she would enjoy it and the action is great. I highly recommend this guitar to any parent wanting to get their child started. The gig bag, tuner, and strap are pretty weak but that wasn't what I wanted when I bought it.
