OVERVIEW

A worthy starter guitar.

A marvel for its price, the traditional dreadnought design makes for one very playable guitar with a great, full tone. Perfect for strumming or fingerpicking any style of music, it's no wonder this guitar has been so highly rated by our customers. Features a genuine spruce top, die-cast tuning machines, 25-1/2" scale nato neck, and bound rosewood fretboard. It's easy to tune and stays that way. Rich, resonant sound and excellent projection and intonation make this a first guitar to be proud of. It's also great for camping or as a second guitar. Each guitar ships with genuine Martin strings for a quality sound right out of the box.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

For the price this cannot be beat. I've been playing for four decades. I was looking for a guitar that came as close in appearance to a Martin D18 I once owned, and I cannot afford one now. Rogue fits the bill with the old-style plain rectangular headstock, the standard dreadnought pick-guard. The tuners were a little sticky out of the box, since the guitar arrived tuned down, and you do need to know this: expect your RA-100D to arrive needing further setting-up. Mine came with the action a tad high and the notes at the low end did not play true because of the higher action, so the nut and saddle had to be shaved down. The neck was straight, however. If you order through Guitar Center, like I did, they will happily assist in the set-up for a reasonable charge. Once it is set up, your toes will turn to cupcakes. I could not believe the sound and playability. The tuners are in full gear (get it?) and the tone is great for a guitar at this price. I'll report back after time has passed, but right now I'm in heaven.

I got a Musicians Friend gift certificate as a Xmas gift from one of my many students (I teach guitar full time)that just about paid for this guitar. What a deal, right? They used to be, but sadly not anymore. Years ago I could recommend this very model to students and they would always be great. Guitar looks great, straight neck, good tuners, and great tone! But their manufacturer can't seem to place the nut accurately in the last two years, making it impossible to tune well. I know this because my students who have bought this very guitar all have the same issue- poor intonation, all because of the same manufacture's defect. The problem is ABSOLUTELY that they place the nut in the wrong position by about 2 mm. I know this because it is impossible to tune this model now with open strings and no capo- the dead giveaway is you can get the chords in one key to sound good, then switch to chords in another key and tuning is just awful- that indicates severe intonation problems. However when you place a capo on any fret on the guitar and then play from there, tuning with my Snark tuner is successful and tuning is PERFECT with all chords in tune in all keys- perfect intonation. After I narrowed down the problem I noticed that the nut on this guitar was placed about 2 mm. to the left too far vs. all my other identical sized, but more expensive and professional, dreadnaught sized guitars in the same scale size. That's it! So I knocked out the nut, routered out 2 mm. from the end of the now exposed fretboard to match the distance between the nut and the first metal fret with my good guitars, re glued the nut into the new position and presto- perfect intonation! Musicians friend is SO close to having a perfect and inexpensive beginner guitar in their lineup- please just call the manufacturer and ask them to recalibrate their CNC routing machines to place that nut correctly- it's a manufacture's defect that would be EASY for them to correct!

      Comments about Rogue RA-100D Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I bought this guitar for my daughter and she never even got a chance to play it before the piece of junk broke. We bought it at the end of April and middle of July and its broke. I took it back to see if they could do something with it or if there was some kind of warranty but of course no. I wouldn't recommend this poorly constructed piece of junk even at the cheap price it is totally not worth the money.

            Comments about Rogue RA-100D Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

            I have been playing guitar for 34 years. I have quality expensive guitars. I'm giving this 5 stars, because as an instrument, and at this price, my expectations were not very high at all---and I was pleasantly surprised.
            I expected a cheap, flimsy, poorly made "starter" instrument...but this didn't fit that category in my opinion. It is well built...and with new strings and a proper set-up, plays and sounds just as good as more expensive instruments.
            I got the Natural guitar, and it is beautiful.
            Was looking for an inexpensive guitar that I wouldn't worry about taking in a canoe, camping, and rugged outdoor activities. After removing the "tinny" steel Martin strings, oiling the fretboard, filing sharp edges on the frets, and restringing with quality Phosphor Bronze strings, (string height and neck bow was fine, so no truss rod, bridge, or nut adjustment was necessary on mine), I'm not sure I wanna let this guitar get beat up in the outdoors any more.
            It showed up with no visible damage, or missed 'quality control' issues (I don't count the sharp fret edges on the guitar, because at this price they're NOT going to "roll" the edges like Fender, Gibson, Taylor, etc...)
            It is the less expensive, less resonant woods used to make this instrument that make it so affordable NOT the construction. Even as an experienced player, I wouldn't be afraid to recommend this to ANYONE looking to play. If you want to get the best out of it be prepared to do a proper set-up, or know someone that can do it for you (if you wanna get the best out of it).

                  I love the feel of this guitar. I am just learning to play guitar, but have been playing the bass for years and have been around a lot of guitars and guitar players. I have played Martins, Taylors, and Guilds, not to mention other less expensive guitars. In my humble, non expert opinion, this sounds almost as well as any of the name brand guitars, and way better than any of the cheaper ones I have played. For the price, I couldn't be happier.
