I've only been playing since 8/03 and casually at that, banging out about 20 E-Z play (Neil Young, Dylan) songs, so for what it's worth, here's my review of this guitar: I bought one based on other readers' reviews (which I find very valuable, btw) and, of course, the price. I liked what I got so much that I promptly bought another, and then another (one for upstairs, one for downstairs, and one for work!). The only beef I've had (and this may just be my ignorance) is that when I plug it into my Fender DSP 30 amp I have to slide the guitar's volume lever up all the way to get it to kick on, then I slowly push the lever down -- but not too far lest the output terminate outright. I thus would like the volume control to work more sensitively/smoothly than that. I?m hoping that maybe I'm doing something wrong (it's always better to discover ?operator error? rather than instrument malfunction, as the former is far easier to fix!). Anyway, the only other thing I'd like is for the action to be as easy as this other Chinese knockoff that I bought locally (a no-name brand) and gave to my girlfriend. Beginners, after all, like guitars to be as easy as possible to play, and I got spoiled by my Squire electric?s action before going acoustic. Nevertheless, the action is good enough and I've found this to be a great deal (hey, I bought 3 of them!). I?ve also thus far been quite pleased buying through this site (hint: google "coupon? and ?Musiciansfriend? before you buy from them so you can quickly cop any coupons out there).

My 13 year old son told me he saw an acoustic electric for about $*****. I said a little sarcastically "oh..sure, I gotta' see this." I'm glad I did. I rated it a ten across the board. From my experience, this guitar can't be beat by any I know of in or within hundreds of dollars.I have probably been asked by parents hundreds of times at my gigs " What is a good guitar I can get my kid started on?" I now would recomend this one above all and to be honest,I wish it had come along many years ago when I was just starting out trying to make a living playing gigs in the Fla. Keys.It is just a stunning performer and value for that price range.I still prefer my Hurricane proof Rainsong though.

This guitar is a good guitar for beginers. The tone is a little blah but when plugged in it has a nice punch to it.
I was very pleasently surprized by this guitar. I bought it for me and my son as a cheap kick around guitar. It sounds great, the electronics are great, the action could be a bit lower but overall a great sounding guitar for a killer price.
This guitar is amazing! This finish is WAY better than I would have expected! The mahogany back and sides shine like crazy! (not to say that the the spruce isn't very nice as well) The herringbone binding is absolutely flawless, It has a nice, thin, playable neck, and an awesome, kind of soft tone. I don't think I've played a better sounding guitar. The only complaint I have is that when plugged into my Peavey Bandit 65 watt amp, It doesn't give quite as much bass as I would like, but that might just be because my amp was mainly made for electric guitars. I can tell I will like the sound better with medium strings. It has a staind fretboard to make it look darker like ebony, so DO NOT USE LIZARD SPIT FRETBOARD CONDITIONER! It takes out the stain (you can probably tell by now that it's happened to me). I cannot state on how good it stays in tune, seeing as how I have only played it once cause it's supposed to be a Christmas present :). BUY THIS GUITAR! For the price, you could get like 6 of them and still not pay what you would have to spend for ONE high end "nice brand" guitar like a Martin or Takamine of the same quality and sound!
Just got it today, frankly I was not expecting the beautiful instrument that came. It is by far the deal of all time. Perfect finish, beautiful clear grain woods and fit. Sound is not as good as my Martin acoustic, but look at the price difference. A little glue smear on the inside, but what can this affect?? Sure does not hurt the value or the sound. Electronics are good, still unbelievable price for an electric-acoustic that came out of the box with perfect setup for me, harmonics are perfect at 5th, 7th, and 12th frets. Herringbone binding is flawless, neck and fretboard are as good as instruments I have seen and owned that cost many many times more than the Rogue. Highly recommend this buy for anyone, "UNBELIEVABLE" Trust me, buy it and you will be amazed at what you can get for your dollar.
A nice guitar that sounds great and plays well-at a very low price. One flaw inside where the kerfing was not consistantly attached to the corner. It's not a big problem. The action needed lowered and truss needed adjustment, but many new guitars need that. A bone nut and saddle-nice! I rounded and polished the fretboard, then oiled it with Gibson's conditioner. The hour of setup made this guitar a wonderful player! The tone is superb!
i can't believe it... how does rogue do it? they remind me of berhinger, why can't other companies do it. anyway... i baught this guitar as a "take to the desert" throw-away for my iraq deployment, but i was blown away, my brother and dad both have takamines and i'd 10-1 rather have my rogue. great sound and fantastic neck! pluged in sounds great on PA too. i've been pickin' for 13 years, i've played everything from martin to el-cheap-o, highly recomend the rogue!
This is a wonderful guitar! I spend a lot of time at the Gutiar Center playing all the expensive guitar that I'll never be able to afford, and this one sounds just as good and is just as easy to play. Guitar came with perfect action height. Threw on some Elixers and its wonderful. Sounds great unplugged, sounds incredible plugged in. Don't miss out.
I have been playing this guitar for about 6 months. The price was absolutely amazing. The only problem is that it frequenly loses intonation. When mine arrived one of the tuners was loose, but that was easily fixable. It sounds great plugged and unplugged. An incredible a/e at this price range!
I bought one just based on the Rogue guitars that I've bought in the past and the reviews of this guitar on Harmony Central and the ones found here. I AM NOT DISSAPOINTED AT ALL! I've been playing since 1974 and the features on this guitar and the sound of it are way above the norm for something in it's price range. I'd even put it up against guitars 3 to 4 times it's price. It's that good. Sure the action needed some tweeking, buy barely. The finish is first rate. The tone is awesome. Totally playable and fine to look at. Check out the all mahogany version. It is just as well built, beautiful, easy to play but sounds a little different. Either way - one heck of a deal. Am I glad I bought one? You betcha.
I had been looking for an a/e guitar but was unwilling to spend big bucks. I ordered the Rogue and was a bit skeptical but figured I had 45 days to decide whether or not to return it. When it arrived, boy was I surprised! It is a really sharp looking guitar; the action is good as any guitar I've played; the tone is nice and full and not at all "tinny" as I expected. The sound is even better when amplified. (I've played it through a regular guitar amp and a keyboard/acoustic amp.) Overall, I'm very pleased with this guitar and plan to use it occasionally on gigs. For the money, you can't beat it.
This guitar is easily one of the best acoustic electric guitars you can get for the price. action was a bit high but I guess that's because I've been playing a strat for years. When unplugged the guitar sounds a bit bright but counterbalances that with the added bass from its dreadnought body. The body had a bit of flaking finish and small white paint streaks along the side of the neck where it joined the body. Other than that it looks gorgeous with the herringbone running along it. The mahongany back and sides are beautiful. The tuners could be better. Tuning the guitar can get a bit tiring at times but atleast it stays in tune well. The Fishman Pick up is amazing. Even the guitar's plugged in sound coming from a small practice amp sounds amazing. For this price this guitar can't be beat.
This acustic electric is my very first one. I have played many acustics and this one would overall beat all except for two or three that I have played. I have been playing for about 3 years now and I have never been any happier with a guitar. I can't think of one thing I don't like about this guitar.
I bought this guitar to use in my country band, to replace my old Fender 12-string. This guitar sounds great, looks great and plays very well. I did sand the fretboard with very fine grade sandpaper and than applied boiled linseed oil onto the fretboard. It made the neck look so nice. I had a setup done at my local guitar store, but the cost was minimal. For the prices of the guitar, if you just make a few tweaks to it, you will have a guitar that is worth 3-5 times the price you pay for it. The electronics in it make this guitar sound awesome! This is an unbeatable deal!
I received my guitar about a month ago, and I am pleased to say that this guitar exceeded all of my expectations. I haven't found anything bad to write about! The action was good, and the guitar sounds sweet. I have been playing for about 1 1/2 years, and I decided that I would upgrade to a guitar with a cutout, and with "electrics". I decided to try the Rogue as a "filler". I am glad I did! I was pleased to find that the guitar came with a bone nut, and bridge. In my humble opinion, this guitar is hard to beat for the money spent. If you are looking for an excellant acoustic-electric guitar with a cutaway, you would be hard pressed to find a better guitar than this one!
I have purchased many instruments with the primarycriteria being "Can I use it for work?". Many of them have required adjustments and refinements to play on the job, which is almost always expected and understandable. I took this guitar out of the box, and without any of the usual neck, nut, or saddle tweaks, I tuned it up and it was ready for work. I was very impressed with the playing comfort, craftmanship, and obvious quality. And yes, I was suprized. Thank you.
I Highly Recommend this guitar to anybody moving up in their career in music! It looks even better in person than it does on this websight.. it sounds absolutly awisome, and even better hooked up to ANY amp!I went from a Fender DG5 Acoustic, to THIS... and I don't miss a single penny that I spent on this! This is PERFECT for any Beginner, and not a bad choice at all for the pro's on the road!
I was looking for a good acoustic/electric guitar to replace my aging Fender acoustic. I tried various models from Martin, Taylor, Ovation, etc; however I couldn't justify the cost. I saw the great reviews posted about the Rogue acoustics, but was a little hesitant about buying a guitar over the internet. Well, I ended up buying one and recieved it a couple days ago. Wow, what a guitar! The quality and sound of this guitar is amazing considering the price. I would recommend this guitar to any of my friends and would definitely buy one again.
I've been a semi pro musician for 20 years and was looking for a cheap guitar for travel. I bought it based on price and price only. What a great guitar. I had to file the bridge slightly and the g string tuner has a little extra play in it. With a little adjustment on the neck, THIS guitar plays and sounds better than my Ovation.The only minor flaw was that the bridge looks like it was stained after assembly but it doesn't make it sound any better. The only thing that would make this a better looking instrument is binding on the neck . This is a good guitar for any player, Nuf Said.
What a great guitar !!!!. Man, this guitar is pretty and plays and sounds great too. I've been looking at a lot of acoustic electrics lately and this guitar is better than a lot of ones that went for 5 times more. Cannot beat this deal for the price.
I have used this guitar in many of my preformances, it hasn't failed me yet. For the price you simply can't beat this deal. this guitar's sound can be compared tho high dollar guitars that i have tried.
