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.

I've had this guitar for about four years now, so it is time to do a review on this seasoned veteran, who has seen countless hours of play time at my hands.

Intonation is good, but not great. I hardly notice any issues most of the time.
Finish has minor blemishes that don't bother me for the price. I have the black model and the paint is a bit blotchy, but hardly noticeable.
Sounds very good for an eighty buck instrument, and the tone has improved over time. Nice, rustic sound - somewhere in-between warm and bright. Honestly, it sounds like it is made of cedar rather than spruce, or at least mine does.
Tuners are okay. Stay in tune fairly well.
Bridge saddle, bridge pins, and nut are of the same, cheap plastic that the binding is made of. It is kind of flaky, but has held up so far.
Neck is glossy and not as fast as a satin neck.
Rosette looks nice for a decal.

Bottom line - it sounds good and plays well. I have received compliments, saying that it sounds/feels like a guitar costing several hundred more. This is coming from two different players, one a virtuoso, both who used to be professional musicians and have played for 25+ years. My friend who has been playing about as long as I have (10 years) brings his Fender acoustic to my house, but I always end up stuck with the Fender because he won't put my Rogue down! :)

When I bought this, I had planned on replacing this a year or two after I got it with a higher end instrument, but it is still my first and only acoustic guitar. Buy it.

Intonation off otherwise a killer deal

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:

    This is my second RA100D. Like a big dummy, I gave the first one away. I needed an inexpensive beater I could take to work and leave in the office. These Rogue RA100Ds are perfect for that. The sound, vs. build.vs. playability, vs price makes it hard to beat. Like any new guitar, It required a setup. After a good setup, new strings and bone saddle this guitar might not make it to my office. The tone is warm and broad, the fretwork was surprisingly great. Sure, There are slight cosmetic blems here and there but the important stuff was done right. If you need a guitar for someone starting out or a good knockaround you can throw in the truck for camping or whatever, you will have a hard time beating this.

      Comments about Rogue RA-100D Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      My best comment regarding this product actually has to do with Musician's Friend, the company. I purchased this product online and it shipped very fast, but unfortunately came with a little paint finish chipped off the headstock. I wrote one e-mail with a picture of it and immediately was given a pre-paid return label and Musician's Friend sent another of the same model guitar, immediately! The second guitar was in perfect condition and I sent the first one back with no hassle at all. Guitar plays great and is ideal for what I purchased it to do...be a second guitar to use for teaching lessons, jamming, etc.

        Comments about Rogue RA-100D Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        While I did have to adjust the bridge to keep the top E string from buzzing the frets, & had to replace one tuner for one of better value I still feel this is hard to beat for the money. The sound is excellent & projects well, the kind of unit to take out for fun, even camping. the sound is not for off the sound of the considerably more costly units. If you're like me get a hard case as I did, no sense in hurting it in transit, & these guys have prices you can't beat.

          Comments about Rogue RA-100D Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          This instrument didn't cost much so it is ideal for beginners and instructional purposes or someone who wants a "beater". The sound is pretty good. The neck and everything else appears fine including the finish. The tuners hold. The action will need adjusting after the woods cure a bit. It has some slight fret buzz with one of the frets and it will need filing.

          I got it for instructional/classroom and it will work fine for that. It just needs a little work if you want it to sound and play like a more expensive guitar.

                This is the third Rogue Dreadnought I've owned. The first one did an 18 month tour in Iraq before it was handed over to my son in 2006, and it's still going strong - sounding just as good as the day I got it.
                This new one has not disappointed. Well built, good sound, and an excellent value.

                    This guitar is exactly what I needed since I'm just beginning to learn. When I received it, there were a few tiny wooden pieces loose inside the guitar, but I just shook them out. The guitar arrived incredibly quickly and I got the tracking number to know when it was coming (which is unexpected for free shipping!). Packaging was adequate.
