I wanted an inexpensive jumbo guitar to take camping because I didn't want to expose my upper end Ovations to the elements. When the Fender JG26SCE arrived, I was impressed by its looks and sound and took it to my gig that night along with my Ovation Custom Legend. After a few songs on the Ovation (plugged into a Peavey Ecoustic 112 amp) I decided to take a chance on the Fender and swapped guitars. The sound was so rich and full that I played it the rest of the night. And I've been playing it at nearly all gigs since then, unless I'm playing my strat. That gig was three summers ago. The guitar has not failed me.Recently I have been playing it through a Marshall AS50R acoustic amp. And I picked up a second gig. I now carry the guitar from venue to venue, but bought a second Marshall AS50R so I would have an amp stashed at each venue. Right now I am in the process of deciding to buy either another JG26SCE or the Fender ESM10E, which is basically the same body, but with solid rosewood sides and back. I had gigged with Ovations for over ten years and still love them, but I found that the sound of this Fender mini-jumbo is richer and fuller, which lends to greater confidence in my solo singer/player environment. And people tend to mention the "wall of sound" that comes from the combination of the guitar and the Marshall. You could say that I'm a "by ear" musician and would be lost in a conversation with "by the book" guitar players. This rig allows me to concentrate on sound and no one has complained.I don't know if this is the guitar for you, but it is my favorite by far, as well as the least expensive...it rooms with a Rickenbacker 360-12, an American Deluxe strat, an ancient Ovation Elite, a new flame Elite, a set of matching Custom Legends (a 6 and a 12) and Gibson Goth Explorer. It's the one I take to every gig. Guess I should mention that I do mostly Dylan, Neil, Zep, Hendrix, Dead...that sort of thing.I found myself playing "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain" for some hunters the other night, but that's another story. It's a great guitar because of the "wall of sound" and it's dependability. Rarely goes out of tune. It's a working musician's dream if I ever did see one.

working musician's moneymaker

By Zuma Hotchakoo

from Pagosa Springs , Colorado

Three summers ago I bought a JG-26SCE to take camping in place of my more expensive Ovations. It's called mini-jumbo, but it's jumbo big and resonant. Everything about it is high quality; stays in tune; action is low and easy. The day it arrived I took it along with my Ovation Custom Legend to the night's gig to try it on a song or two. I played two songs on the Ovation (solo gigger), then tried a song on the new Fender. Since that first song, the Fender has been my main gigging guitar. It is not flashy, but the sound is there. Try this one before going for broke on one of the expensive jumbos available. This guitar and the Marshall as50r amp helped me discover and define my sound. I recently ordered the Fender esm10, which is the same guitar with better wood (Mexican rosewood/spruce top) and electronics. I play four hours per night twice a week and on Saturdays play for eight hours. The Fenders make it easy. I'd never heard much good about any Fender acoustic; bought this as a campfire guitar, instead I've found guitars that have worked incredibly for me. I'd do it again without hesitation.

no campfire guitar

By Zuma Hotchakoo

from Pagosa Springs , Colorado

I bought this guitar four summers ago. I play solo gigs three to four times per week, mostly folk rock to classic rock. I used (until recently), a Peavey Ecoustic 112, but now use a Marshall as50r only (2---one at each venue). For a decade I used either an Ovation Elite 6-string or an Ovation Custom Legend 6-string. I originally ordered the Fender as a campfire guitar.I took the JG-26SCE to my gig the first day I got it, along with my Elite. I tried the JG on the fourth song, straight out of the box. The sound was so impressive that it is all I have used since when playing acoustically (90% of the time). I love the guitar's full sound and ease in playing. I have played up to eight hours straight with no hint of tiring. The guitar is so good natured. Three gigs and it paid for itself. I'd buy it again...nothing else I really want. Yes, you can gig with it. Or if you can't, please don't tell me because I don't want to give the money back. It,like all Fender products I own, is quality. Never a problem, and a great number of hours traveling and on stage. It will never see a campfire...I'd take my Elite camping before I'd take this good Fender, and I love that Elite too, even though it cost three times as much. The JG is also good looking and it stays in tune. It is an uncommonly good guitar at a crazy low price.

Couldn't get any better..

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've bought this guitar recently over another fender...I wanted a different fender, but when I played this one I tottaly changed my mind! Unplugged, it sounds really nice, and plugged in it's just beautiful. The best thing about it (for me) is the tuning an intonation...every chord sounds like i couldn't have tuned it better! I'd recomended to anyone buying a guitar with this amount of money! I can't stop playing it, and i've tried some GOOD guitars!

great value for money

By lightcatcher

from SE NY state

I've owned this for around 2 years. Many of my friends who are performing musicians say it's nice. The action is easy, quality construction, accurate tuning and intonation, and looks nice. Sound both alone and with amp is fine. It's not a deep sounding guitar for thumping rhythms, but if you like precise string work, picking, it's great. It's light weight, easy to play. Most guitars that sound this good cost much more. I recommend it.

Nothing horrible, but I've seen better

By van_hafner

from Rock Hill, SC

For fender, all I have to say is I'm not impressed. But I have to say this does have some good things about it. For one, it stays in tune very well. Also, the neck span makes it ideal for chords and such. This is a great acoustic guitar, but it's lacking in the electric department. The only things that have really irritated me about this guitar is how the scratchplate comes off so easily. The glue is like scotch tape. But if you want a guitar just for chillin and strummin some chords, this is worth the money. I play on this guitar often at home just for the hell of it. But if you are planning on doing gigs or something with it, look elsewhere. Overall, sounds good, but not worth the money.

I love this guitar and don't want to put it down

By Tim-HNeAx

from Dallas, TX

I tried and bought several guitars before purchasing this one. This guitar just "fits" me. It's easy to play "all-day". I love the Looks, feel, and sound of this guitar. It sounds good to me whether I have it plugged into an amp or not. I am 44 now and have only been play for about 2 1/2 years. I struggled with other guitars. After I finally figured out what I was looking for, I found this guitar. I made approximately 15 trips to various stores playing every guitar within my budget < $800.00. I just kept coming back and played this guitar over and over again until I purchased it. I have 2 other guitars. An Ovation and an old Epiphone FT-145 Texan. I like my other guitars, but I love This one.
