A friend brought one into work about 8 years ago. Looked real cool, so I asked if I could test drive it. Started out with "Come Together," and the swampy bottom had me right a way. The high end was crisp and, best of all, it stayed in tune. I can put this down for a month or so (I have a few guitars) and she's still in tune. I believe it a copy of a Martin, right down to the head stock and sounds like a pretty good second. This is a nice guitar that anyone would appreciate it. The only bad point: a cheap plastic saddle that cracked under pressure at the 5th and 6th string. Remedied by a change at the shop. I still count on this as my go to instrument. The "Concert" size is a joy to play and puts out the sound of much larger dreads. My advice: Get one.

I have bought this exact "Rogue Grand-Concert Cutaway Acoustic/Electric" Guitar for over 10 years, many times for my students because they always hd basic solid quality at a great price. I would guess I have purchased between 30-40 in my life, all were bought to set up by grinding down the nut and bridge saddle for better action and then pressing in a few frets.
The last handful of these I bought have been having more and more issues: Tuning gear bushings that fall off, Tuning gears that are grindingly NOT smooth, Pick-ups that don't work, pick-up that doesn't pick up all the strings evenly (common, but sometimes they can be repositioned properly, which SHOULD have been done at the factory), frets that were not filed off the edge of the fretboard to make smooth position changes, nuts that are hollow where they used to be solid (they break when removing them to file them down), nuts that are the wrong width but installed anyways, broken EQ unit clips, faceplate on EQ unglued.
I am hoping when I get up the courage to buy another one that they will have fixed the quality control a little bit by then. These USED TO be the BEST value and a great Guitar with great features for dirt cheap.

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for about two years, and I was just looking for a cheap acoustic. This is my first acoustic and I didn't have much to spend. When I opened it up it already had some scratches and plenty of blemishes. The lacquer used for this guitar is very thin and cheap. It scratches very easily, the wood is also pretty thin. I've yet for anything to break on this yet. That being said the neck is starting to crack where it meets the body. It's very lightweight and has a low quality sound. I was not surprised that it didn't have outstanding tone but let down. Most other guitars within the same price range have a much better sound. The electric portion of the guitar is nothing to write home about. It's not very consistent on picking up all the strings. It gets significantly quieter around the b and e strings. The intonation of the truss rod isn't that good so the farther down you get the notes might be off. The saddle is slowly chipping just from the strings, and a piece of the nut broke off due to strings. The fretboard feels very cheap, and gets dirty fast. The fretboard dries up pretty quickly too. It gets out of tune fairly quickly. unfortunately the truss rod adjustment is done through the soundhole so you'll have to adjust with the strings removed. It is a nice looking guitar, definitely looks like a more expensive guitar. But upon a close look you can see that it looks very cheap. The pick guard stays on very well I have had no peeling yet. The jack in can hold a strap while unplugged but I do not recommend. There are no strap buttons whatsoever on this guitar. The tuning pegs are a little stiff and look/feel very cheap. The preamp sometimes cuts out and is difficult to get back on. I all around would not recommend this guitar unless you are looking for a simple guitar that you'll play every once in a blue moon. Doesn't live up to their slogan "fine instruments."

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great little guitar to keep within reach. I keep mine next to the couch so I will have it at hand when the TV show I am watching goes to commercial. Sounds good electric or unplugged.
I have played two of these guitars. Quality, playability, ect is the same for both. What I like best about this model is the size. The body is smaller, thinner and lighter than the standard dreadnaught size. The size makes it more comfortable to hold and play without sacraficing much is the way of sound or volume. The cutaway body is a nice feature. The white binding on the neck and around the body give this guitar a nice look. The electronics are ok, but the battery for the preamp is a bit of a hassle to install.
String action is great which makes this guitar almost as easy to play as an electric. I really dont understand how Rogue can offer such an easy playing guitar at such a low price. Fret ends have some sharp edges but that is expected in a guitar in this price range. Tuning machines arent the greatest and I will most likely replace them at some point in the future.
I highly recommend this guitar for any player. It is worth the price.

Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar

By Christina Altman

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My fiance had talked about wanting to learn how to play an acoustic guitar. Not knowing anything about guitars I enlisted the help of a good friend who is a musician. He guided me to this one, so I had it delivered to their house. Upon checking it out, he was very happy to take the time to do a little jam session on it. It sounds great both on and off the amp!! This is the perfect choice for a beginner!

The thing is built like a tank and the finish on the one I received is excellent. Its like a mirror and has no flaws of any kind. I was very surprised at the finish quality. The tuners appear to be well made and of heavy construction. They have a very bright chrome finish and they are very smooth operating. The pick guard looks ok but is somewhat cheaply made and I can tell that it will probably not stay on for very long. It is glued to the body with what appears to be a weak adhesive. This is a "peel and stick" guard. The strings are heavy gauge Daddario and need to be replaced with lighter gauge to promote easier playing. The sound when playing as an acoustic is not impressive. The lows are somewhat weak. The middle and high ranges are ok. Mine had one almost dead string. The overall sound volume is low. Using with an Amp is a different story. The Fishman electronics do a great job with this guitar. It has a completely different sound when played as an electric. I have been using it through a DigiTech RP55 Modeling Guitar Processor with a Fender Super Champ XD tube amp using the clean channel and also with an Ibanez 65 watt Sound Wave Bass amp with the tones set at neutral and with the tweeter enabled with super results.Both amps have given really great (and significantly different) sounds with this guitar. The Bass amp brings out great lows and mids and with the tweeter enabled the mid and upper ranges are further enhanced. I was very impressed with the sounds using both amps. One issue the 9 volt battery used in the Fishman electronics module is very difficult to install and replace on mine. The Fishman unit is supposed to lift straight up when unlatched allowing you to insert a battery located in a tray in the bottom of the unit. The soldered wiring in the very bottom of the Fishman unit in mine does not allow the unit to slide completely up and it takes a lot of effort to remove the old battery and replace it with a new one. Also, no instructions are included on battery replacement or operation of the electronics. Be sure to unplug the cord from your guitar when you finish playing or the battery will be dead because the Off/On switch is built in the jack! I have had a lot of fun with this guitar mostly as an electric. The sound is ok as an acoustic and very good as an electric especially if you have a processor with the amp to play around with.It is a keeper for me especially at the price.
Good price, well made, good electronics
Built like a tank, very solid, very good finish on mine, "but" heavy strings, battery replacement is difficult, pick guard is a "peel and stick", no instructions on electronics operation.
Good starter guitar for the money.

Sweet and playable

By Steven Kirby

from Southern Sierra Nevada

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

awesome value for the money.
I really like the binding and the finish, I got the sunburst model, really pretty. Robust accoustic tone, electrics are solid and bright...excellent, sweet amplified tone. Smooth, snug feel on the tuners, they appear to stay put, nice. Very comfortable compact body, nice, tight little cutaway. stays up on a knee.
I had to dress a couple frets on mine, but thats it. The action and intonation were set up well right out of the box. Cool.
this guitar is well worth 3 times what I paid for it.

Great Little Guitar

By Winston Street

from Laurel, MS

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had read some of the reviews on this guitar and felt fairly comfortable with purchasing it. I purchased two for students that I am teaching at church. I was really surprised at the quality of these guitars when I took them out of the box. I did not have to make one adjustment other than tuning before playing it. The strings were perfect on the height from the finger board, their intonation was perfect and the tone was very good. The only gripe I had was the edges of the frets were fairly sharp but I corrected that in a few minutes with a piece of sandpaper. My friend, who is one of the better guitarist in this part of the country, came over that night to jam. He laid his Martin D-28 down and picked one of these little guitars up and never put it down the rest of the night. He was impressed with it. I recommend this guitar to anyone who have beginner students and need a good little axe for a good price. I've been playing lead guitar for various groups for 55 years and I would have given anything to have had this guitar to learn on. Actually I may buy one for myself if they build them left handed.

I have bought this exact "Rogue Grand-Concert Cutaway Acoustic/Electric" Guitar for over 10 years, many times for my students because they always hd basic solid quality at a great price. I would guess I have purchased between 30-40 in my life, all were bought to set up by grinding down the nut and bridge saddle for better action and then pressing in a few frets.

Great Guitar for Jazz

By FlickVideo

from SF Bay Area

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Good quality... but not great. Tone and sustain are both good. Acoustic tonal balance is much better than I had expected. Performs better electrically than acoustically unless you're into playing Jazz. Not a great flatpicking guitar... its not an acoustic canon. Overall the attention to detail matches other brands in the same price range.
I got this because I wanted an inexpensive acoustic electric for recording acoustic Jazz and Blues. I've had guitars with the Fishman electronics before and have been pleasantly surprised. This is no exception. I also drop in a Dean Markley humbucker in the soundhole for recording... using the two pickup systems together (through a USB mixer) gives me all the tonal control I want: I can emulate everything from a vintage parlor guitar to full blown dreadnaught. But here's the kicker... acoustically this guitar sounds great for jazz comping and jazz leads. Don't expect the bottom end of a Martin or Taylor... its just not there. But for a beautifully balanced tone with full expression on single notes, double stops and triads you'd have to spend more to do better than this. It feels like its got 11s (not 12s) and that may account for the brightness and clarity in the mid to upper range. The action is high and I'm taking it in to get the action worked on. But its still a very playable guitar as is.
It did come with scratches and abrasions in the finish. Also, the battery doesn't mount securely in the preamp so I tape it in. That eliminated a lot of distortion and hum in the audio output that I was getting. The light on the preamp does not stay on when a cable is inserted... there's a short somewhere... but I won't send it back unless it gets worse.
Thin body, light weight and easy to play... especially with the high action. If the action was better, the scratches and scrapes were not there, and the electronics didn't have issues I would rate the value much higher. But you get what you pay for. Guitars in this price range from all brands exhibit the same problems as this model.

Beautiful Guitar, but just ok.

By Franklin McDonald

from California

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is handsome and light weight. The finish and choice of woods are excellent. It took me two hours to get it tuned. The B and E strings were very difficult to get right. After it was tuned it was good all the way up to the 12th fret and beyond. The last two frets are hard for me as my fingers are too fat. It is not a full size guitar and it is easily managed. The guitar sounds much better when plugged in. Without the amp the guitar does not produce much acoustic volume. Still a good choice for a beginning artist. A nice guitar to travel with. You can practice quietly. This guitars best use would be best for a beginning guitarist.
Fisher electronics, Binding and Finish are all excellent. A beautiful guitar.
Had some problems tuning. Have some concerns about the pick guard.
An attractive beginners guitar for a very low price.

    Thanks Musician's Friend. They looked and found Rogue used guitar of good Recording quality and give me a big discount. I just receive it from shipping and played for 4 Hrs. Not a sour note: the Fisher electronics is pree...ty sweet for my Mixing Console- KAWAI- MX16-Japanese. No longer need to tweak all the parameters to achieve the sounds I WANT. and I am very picky @ the Guitar sounds indeed. Great services, Bravo Rogue guitar Shop & MF.com as always. For the price I paid this guitar is worth every penny. and only the Concert guitar of five more times money to pay to attain that recording level. I am happy with this Rogue! hadzimurad-USA

      Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Ordered the Grand Concert cutaway model during the Labor Day 2013 deal of the hour specials.

      (I should add before I review that I own and play some very expensive guitars. I wanted an acoustic-electric that I could set up with strings for Nashville tuning. Being a "high pitched" tuning, I wasn't that interested in a well-balanced instrument per se.)

      The guitar arrived promptly, well-packed. The guitar itself was in an inner cardboard box, in an inner foam bag with a desiccant, and an outer waterproof plastic bag. It came with a cable and a 9v battery (which was not alkaline, so I used my own alkaline).

      Contrary to previous reviews ("CTPR"), the battery was easy to install, except there was no guidance as to which way to insert the 9v battery. In fairness, the manual on the Fishman site doesn't tell you either. This model Fishman onboard preamp (looks like a PRESYS+ minus the Notch and Brilliance knobs) has a built-in tuner. CTPR, a cable doesn't need to be inserted for the tuner to operate.

      I had no clue as to what kind of strings it came with, but they were covered in a sleeve of what I guess is anticorrosive paper. (As I replaced them, I noticed they had colored ball ends, so I trust they were D'Addario strings.) CTPR, the frets are nice. CTPR, the action is fine. The tuning machines are a mite sloppy compared to guitars that are, again, considerably more expensive, but the guitar seems to hold its tune pretty well.

      Overall fit and finish is clean and trim, not gorgeous, just clean and trim. It's actually a good-looking unit. It sounded fine both acoustically and through a 15w amp, far more balanced than anyone has a right to expect at this price point.

      For this guitar I paid roughly 1/50 of what other guitars I own are worth.

      Bottom line: I'm a cappy hamper.

      Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      My guitar got to me pretty quick and i was really impressed with the packaging. Someone really put some thought into the shipping and the chances of it being thrown around. I unwrapped it gingerly to make sure everything was there and ok.
      The first thing I found was a chip out of the top of the guitar on the head where the tuning keys are. Broke my heart because everything else appears to be flawless. After doing a quik tune up on it I played with it for about 20 minutes. my left hand I noticed my fingertips were black from playing, no big; just tells me this instrument has been sitting unprotected for quite some time. I am afraid to plug it in to listen to the electronics in it with some of the other reviews I read. You see, I didn't ask for the "new electronics" for this guitar. I have no intention of sending it back. I just want Musicians Friend to be more aware of what they are sending to their customers. Nothing came with the guitar including the invoice or receipt. I have only the guitar and a 9 volt battery. Nothing stating what kind of wood was used and what type or brand of electronics were installed. Hell, I don't even know where to put the battery. I know there is suppose to be an invoice of some kind in with the guitar but there isn't. Any suggestions of what to do about no receipt? I couldn't possibly send it back and don't want to go through all that anyway. So far, I would still recomend these guys to friends but like I said, I haven't plugged it in yet...

      I got the first one and it must have been old stock. It had the fishman classic 4 pre-amp. It had a short in it. The neck had a hairline crack next to the body. The frets were horrible- like 20 penny nails that were pressed into the fretboard with jagged ends on both sides. I returned it. MF sent the replacement out with free upgraded delivery. This one was dang near perfect. I sanded down the bridge, changed the strings, adjusted the truss rod and it is a really nice sounding guitar. It also had the new pre amp that is featured in the photo. So I suggest if you want one call customer service and request that they inspect the one that they ship and ask for one that has the newer electronics in it.

      Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The look, finish and sound are excellent. The strings that came with it, not so great.
      When it first arrived I thought it sounded terrible, and was hard to tune. Because I had a set of fender solid nickel strings, which I was eager to try, I did the switch. This changed everything! Plays nice in accoustic and sounds great on the amplifier. Handles easily on the fret board. Money well spent.
      Nice guitar to handle. Beautiful to look at! Choice of wood finish, bindings and Fisher electronics, this all adds up to a nice instrument. Not so sure about the pick guard.
      $100,00 Well spent!

      Great Inexpensive Guitar

      Comments about Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Just received this the other day, I ordered the sunburst model and, I must say I am very impressed. The looks,feel, and, sound are GREAT! Compared to other acoustic electric guitars for the bucks spent it's pretty hard to beat. Took it out of the carton tuned it up, put the battery in and, sat down and, played it for about two hours. Stayed in tune and was very comfortable to hold. Tried to find one thing that maybe I could say was negative but, I couldn't. I have a friend that has a very expensive Ovation and, this instrument sounds just as good. I would certainly reccomend this instrument to anyone looking for an inexpensive acoustic electric for not a lot of bucks.
