OVERVIEW

Everything you need to start playing now.

Fender has made the top-selling DG-8S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Pack even better by upgrading its full-sounding, easy-playing dreadnought guitar with even finer features. These include a slightly re-shaped pickguard and rosewood bridge that give a nod to the Fender acoustics of the 1970s, new 3mm dot markers that lend an elegant touch to the fretboard, and a simple-but-striking mother-of-pearl acrylic rosette.

Other features include a solid spruce top with scalloped and quartersawn "X" bracing for balanced tone, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck with 20-fret rosewood fretboard, neck and body binding, and Graph Tech Nubone nut and compensated bridge saddle. Pack includes everything needed to start playing, with gig bag, chromatic electronic tuner, strings, picks and strap. Comes with a free download of Rock Prodigy software that you can download to your computer, tablet or smartphone.

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

Freakin' Awesome

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

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.

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

      I am a music teacher. I recommend this guitar pack for all my students to get started. They have all been very happy with it and I also bought it for my son for his Birthday. The reasons are:
      1. You get solid spruce top in this price range! That makes the guitar sound so much better and is very unusual at this price point. Usually you get all laminate wood at this price. The sides and back are still laminate, but the solid top sold me on this guitar.

      2. The guitar is set up well and holds a tune. I have all my students switch to Elixir Nanoweb custom light 11 gauge strings. After that is done, this guitar plays easily and that makes all the difference between someone getting frustrated and quitting versus someone loving guitar because their instrument sounds good and plays well.

      3. It is very beautiful. The guitar is impressive looking. I am only familiar with the natural wood version and it is shiny and beautiful with a binding around the body and a mother of Pearl Rosette. These are luxuries not usually found at this price point.

      4. It is a Fender. A well-respected brand that has been around a long time! I also own a Fender Stratocaster and a Fender tube amp and love them too.

      5. The pack also provides a tuner, strap and a nice gig bag to safely transport the guitar. The value is exceptional here!

      I'm Impressed, and Surprised

      By Junebug2009

      from Alabama

      Comments about Fender DG-8S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar 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.

          We were in the market for an acoustic guitar for my 20 year old son. A friend told me about Musician's Friend and their experiences. Found what we were looking for AND got a great deal. Had problems getting a coupon code to work so I got on their online chat. Got excellent help from a customer service rep. and a new coupon code that worked! I chose regular shipping since it was free. It was close to Christmas and the guitar was delivered in TWO DAYS! We were pleasantly surprised! Will definitely return for more items.

              A beginners-only guitar

              Comments about Fender DG-8S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar 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.

              Comments about Fender DG-8S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar 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!

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

              Well I bought this sucker about 8 years ago and I still have to bust it out every now and then to play some acoustic stuff. It's held up well and although it doesn't produce the high dollar tone, it's definately decent. If I could go back I'd buy it all over again. I would highly recommend this for a first timer.
