My friend purchased his Rogue Acoustic Electric Dreadnought about 2 months ago and I loved it the moment I held it, first off I was impressed with the neck, not to thick but not to thin, it (like Goldilocks) was just right, the next thing I noticed is his had a Fishman Presys system as opposed to the Classic 4 as advertised but then another friend of mine ordered one and it used the Classic 4, so I'm assuming the newer ones use the Presys but you may get one with the Classic 4, however both systems are superior to anything offered by any other acoustic electric dreadnought at it's price point, the guitar came strung with Martin strings as was set up perfectly out of box, the tuners leave a little bit to be desired however, they are your standard cheap "sealed tuners" they're Gotah copies which in my experience are hit and miss, I've seen them on several affordable guitars and I've seen cases where all of them work decently, I've seen cases where some worked and some didn't,
I've seen cases where none worked properly at all however because this guitar comes with a great neck, good tone and Fishman electronics it's easy to overlook the cheap tuners and they're easily replaced with either Grover Mid Size Rotomatics or real Gotahs with no modifications necessary, just unscrew the old, pop in the new, tighten the screws and then you're ready to go and rock n roll, the fit and finish seems to be near perfect, I couldn't spot any blemishes whatsoever, I own a Kona K1E guitar that's about the same price as this guitar and in my opinion the Kona (while a very nice guitar) doesn't compete for the price, another great thing about the Rogue is that for the money you pay, you don't have to be afraid to uses it at your canvas to create one of a kind guitar art, put on new tuners, a new pickguard, whatever you want to do to make it yours and yours alone, this guitar is amazing and is highly recommended by me.

Overall I like the guitar. Played it today actually. I guess I was a little more disappointed about the Customer Service and warranty. not worth shipping back for repairs. maybe they should have mentioned they would cover the costs.
Took it out of the carton and it was a shining black beauty. I really liked it.
nice but not perfect... accoustic sounded ok, but electrified sounded better. I guess what I do have a complaint about is the led power indicator did not work. I suspected the "included battery" so I bout a new one and inserted it with same result. I contaced Customer Service and asked them to get me a batter/power module sent and I will fix it. They couldnt do that and said I can ship it back. They never issued a shipping authorization in the email so I figured the shipping cost was on me. I kept it, but learned a lesson.
It's worht the $$$ that it's offered at and what I paid if everything worked. That's what was intended when it was manufactured

Great Buy

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Great buy! You will not regret it.
Great guitar with an amazing pre amp. The sound that it deals out partnered with the tone controls is just great and unexpected.
It's a light weight guitar which is good, when I got it new just from the manufacturing the paint was as great on the edges and there was glue smeared in places that I took off. The 9 volt battery compared is really difficult to get put back in after you attach the battery. Aside from the decent paint job and difficult the tone quality is great. I play in a lot of dropped tuning and it holds tone and tuning perfectly.
I got this guitar on sale and the case was an available for a low price too. I believe and it is phenominal at that price. I normally play bass in our band but we play a lot of acoustic shows and most of my bass lines could be lead lines so it sounds good.

Rougue

By Dan

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Ive had this guitar for about 3 years now and I love it. I have done some work to it however. I changed the tuners out (which wasnt really nessisary) to Grovers and put in a compensated bone saddle and filed it down and this guitar plays better than most guitars Ive played period. I have had the problem of the bridge comming unglued which is a pretty big problem, I guess they use really cheap glue at the factory. But I do guitar work and I fixed it properly and Ive never has an issue with it since. I always love the compliments I get from others and then I tell what I payed for it and what little work Ive done to it.

Its a solid guitar and with a little work you can make this guitar great. The preamp sounds great as well.

I have bought 2 other (nicer) acoustic electrics thinking Im gonna part with this one and get a big name guitar because I gig alot with this guitar but I always end up selling the (nicer) guitar and keeping this one. If I ever lost it or it was stolen, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat and do the the exact modifications to it as I have this one, minus the grover tuners.
cutaway, fishman 4 preamp, decent tuners. strap button input jack
the finish is not the best

I'm a newbie when it comes to guitars, but this does seem to have excellent sound as compared to others with similar or even higher pricing.
Really looks well made with great quality.
Dollar for dollar, looks and sounds great as compared to others.

The Hard Truth- an honest review from a seasoned player *** {best bang for your buck}

By John Canales

from Seattle,WA /Austin,TX

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is in the starer guitar price range on my list... but it most definetly can rival the average guitar player who plays on a daily basis. It could be a guitar to fall in love with.
The features seem to be great. I've used that pick up on other guitars. It isn't the best but the company who makes it has a great reputation

and lots of acoustic science behind their products.

This guitar was purchased for my sister in-law as her first guitar. The machine heads are mediocre. On the brand new guitar they are a bit tough to turn but still do able. There seems to be a bit of "catching" on a the B sting which is typical on worn and loose machine heads. The curve on the neck fit the hand well. It isn't too bulky. The finish is okay... . The wood resonates well.

I wouldn't mind plugging it in and using it live as a back up in case of an emergency. I've been in situations where I was offered as a back-up to play a vintage applause with nasty strings and a curved neck, a dodgy pick up... it was the only guitar I ever turned down to finish a gig. (I rarely only have one guitar on a gig, so there has only been a handful of times where I've had that situations come up).
No blemishes... but I have to set it up or pay someone to set up the guitar (b/c I really don't have the time). I might even have to replace the nut. The action wasn't great out of the box. There was lots of buzzing on the high e & B strings on multiple frets. It's a low priced guitar. You get what you pay for. I was helping a family member choose their first guitar. There are somethings that are important to having a first guitar... that's easy play-ability. It doesn't have to sound that great or have the best features it just has to be set up right. It doesn't even have to look good (Look at Willie Nelson's guitar).
When learning guitar, sometimes the guitar is the problem not the person learning the guitar. In this case, the action set up needs to be a bit better out of the box- especially since it's an online purchase. I'm a seasoned player .
It's the best bang for your buck if you are looking for a "First Guitar". I had the choice of picking out a guitar for a family member and after doing some research found this guitar to be the best option in the price range. Even looking around. (The average bundle packages reduce the quality of guitar. You think you are paying for a great guitar but really you are paying for a cheap guitar with extra crap. lol.) So in this case just buying the guitar at the over-the-holiday-marked-down-price was great.

I still have my Rogue Heeringbone

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Great construction with solid top
Great price
Very good sound
Electronis and cutaway
Copy of D-28
Great palyability with a basic setup
What are you waiting for!
I have just recently down-sized selling a Strat Hss and Standard, and my Takamine solid top singcutelectric/acoustic. I still have my Rogue. although the Herringbone 6-string is discontinued, It was the best acou/electric guitar under $120 and maybe $420. The Tak was beautiful with gold hardware and full binding, but I like to play the Rogue which was no plain jane either.
It is essentially a copy of the HD-28. And a darn good copy I must say.
Very well built and after a $30 setup this guitar stole the show and is still my road guitar replacing the EJ-200 and Takemine.

The solid top, scallop bracing and after having this baby 5 years it still plays well, very well. It was not as sentive to the weather changes as the Epi.

I would have rated this guitar a 10 if it were solid wood back and sides. A fantasy for a $100 guitar, although the Silver creek guitars a solid would for a fair price (on sale).
Single cutaway,
decent pickup system
solid top
scallop bracing
under $140
MF has got your back and that is why I am still a customer
What more can you ask for?....hard case and solid wood and free lessons maybe?

Good and Bad

By 2manyGuitars-uIoGV

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Overall: So far I've given it an 8 for feartures, a 6 for quality, and a 7 value; that averages out to 7, which is about right. If you're luck and get a good example, or if the worst of it is surface flaws... and you're just learning how to play, this is perhaps the very best guitar you can buy for your money. But after you've been playing for a few years, this may not be what you're wanting, even at its price.
Features: Guitar is well featured with the fishman preamp. They come with brand name strings, but they're only 10s, but they still sound good; they really need to put 12s on it, which should really improve the sound quite a big. A major thing I would like to see added is an onboard tuner... which would peg it as a 10+, despite the stock strings.
Quality: I have purchased these guitars over the past 7 years for myself, family, friends, and co-workers. Each time a guitar arrives, I go over it with a fine tooth comb. A few years ago, these guitars were near perfect in build quality, but something has happened recently. They now arrived dinged up, large flaws in the finish, cracks in the body, roughly sanded frets, and worst of all... bridges that separate from the guitar as tighten up the strings for tuning. And remember, that 12's pull harder on the bridge than do 10's!

Recently, I had 4 of these guitars sent out to my house. I returned all but one, and that was only because a co-worker was so anxious to start learning how to play, that he was willing to overlook the dinged up front side and gritty frets. Don't know what's happened Rogue, but they ain't what they used to be. I won't be ordering anymore of these guitars, and what a shame that is - cause they used to be well worth the money.
Value: If it weren't for the serious decline in quality, I'd rate it as a 10, but the flaws and the weak bridge attachment seriously chop into this score. And the only reason I gave it a 7 is because of the low price and the fishman preamp. By the way, I've received a few of these that did not pickup either the high or the low E string very well. After removing the "bone" at the bridge, I found that the piezo strip wasn't contacting very well along the entire width. Easiest way to fix this is to put a very thin layer of hard clay on plastic; the string pressure will cause it to spread out and give you full contact, thereby giving you pickup coverage of all 6 strings.

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar seceral years ago and I could not have found a better beater hundred buck ax. It sounded good,which is good since I normally play Guilds and Martins standard. This guitar is a copy of a D-28 and while it is not nearly as full sounding as a martin, it is not bad and I have had offers to buy it for double my purchase price.
Mines is special because it has the herringbone trim which was discontinued....my good luck.
I returned a takamine and sold my Ovation Celebrities because this guitar did what they did better. This is the best guitar for the money even over Epi, yamaha Ibanez and Alvarezs, fender, dean,and Luna. This is the best deal for a good sub two hundred buck guitar.

Awesome Plugged or unplugged

By David Hornaday

from Oklahoma

Comments about Rogue Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

.
I have played now for over 25 years and bought my 1st guitar at 16 an Alverez and now that I have this guitar I hardly ever play my Alverez or my Washburn anymore this Guitar is truly awesome i have had it for 5 years now and it is the only one I play everyday it sounds amazing just strumming on the couch, or plug in and playing with the guys.

The 1st time I went to a Jam with some new friends here in Oklahoma, I pligged in and started warming up and they all stopped talking and started listening, and asking what type of Guitar is that? and when I told them the price I got mine for thier jaws dropped so far I thought we were going to have to fixs the floors. Now I did get mine during clearance / damaged sale off and did the repairs myself, but the price they have it at now is close to what I paid for mine...it is an amazing deal so much so that now I am buying one for my step son per his and my request he has had a few guitars but allways come and gets mine from the stand to play now he will have his own.

This is a great guitar for new players with the close action and ease of fingering it is easy on tender fingers

So get one and have fun.
