I've been playing guitar for 27 years and I've owned quite a few acoustic guitars. This is one of three best ones I've played, and it was by far the lowest priced of the three.

Normally, I wouldn't recommend that beginners buy a cheap guitar to learn on, since most lower-priced ones are difficult to play and don't sound very good, no matter how well you play. However, this one is a rare exception.

I've owned this guitar (mine is a sunburst model) for about two years now and I play it at least twice a week. I'm always impressed by how much guitar it is for the price tag. I've even had a number of compliments on how it sounds from people who are surprised when I tell them how much it cost. The sustain is long and smooth and the natural harmonics are very prominent, yet pleasing to the ear, even with the stock strings, which were even a bit tarnished upon arrival.

The only complaints that I've had about it is that the nut slots were cut a bit rough and the G string tended to bind and break, until I filed it and the B string slot down and added some graphite (pencil lead dust) to them, and that the tuners don't keep the guitar in tune for more than a day.

However, I've owned a few acoustic guitars that cost three or four times as much this one and I wouldn't trade this for any of them. This guitar may not be able to hold it's own against a Martin, Taylor, or a Guild, and perhaps not even a number of Ibanez acoustics, but it's just an incredibly great guitar for the price and that's the honest truth.

    Comments about Rogue RA-090 Concert Acoustic Guitar:

    I purchased the natural finish of this guitar for my mom who's learning to play, and was quite surprised because of how good this guitar is. I have a collection of different acoustic guitars and this guitar definitely competes and is better than much higher priced guitars.

    The guitar has a nice lacquer on it that gives a great appearance and when playing it just feels right in your hand. It has a nice pitch when strumming and for what I paid, it's completely exceeded my expectations. Pay no mind to the price tag, you're not getting a cheap instrument but a great buy that you won't regret.

    In fact, it's inspired me to purchase the RA-090 acoustic in mahogany.

        Comments about Rogue RA-090 Concert Acoustic Guitar:

        Got this guitar for my young daughter to begin taking lessons. She loves the sunburst finish, which is better than you'd expect at this price. I played the guitar after tuning it up for her, and it has a nice neck and pretty good sound, especially in the low end. Of course this is not a Taylor or Martin, so some fret cleanup and lowering of the action are in order. Also, some better tuners are an option for down the road. It needs a lot of tuning, but that's not bad since she needs to learn how to tune it herself. Overall, the construction of the guitar is good, the sound is good, and it looks nice, so it's a great place to start.

            I use this product to compose and play. A good guitar for taking along on a road trip or to the beach. Durable. If you stretch the strings thoroughly, it will stay in tune for a couple hours. If not, you will have to retune it after 2-3 songs. Full sound, a bargain at twice the price.
