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.

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.

Wow, great guitar for the price!

Read complete review

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.

This guitar I would say is a good starter guitar for a kid to beat on and miss treat.

I normally play the higher end guitars but I gotten this one as a gift over christmas. I figured it is the thought that counts and I should atleast play it to get use to it so when I am asked to play it. It does not sound that bad to the listeners.

First thing is first. The string high or action of the guitar is set up way to high for my liking. I do not like to fight the guitar to play it. But at the same time most starting out guitarist quit because they do not know or cannot adjust the action. I tried everything to get the string hight correct. My last ditch atttempt was taking off the strings and pulling appart the saddle of the bridge out and filing it down by 1/18th of an inch at a time to get corret hight. But here lays another problem. The fret board is made of rose wood. It looked like it was not cared for so I had to go over while my strings are off and re-oil them and polish them off so they look and stayed clean.

I am right now thinking of refretting the guitar because the frets sit pretty high up from the neck which cause a very undelightful buzz sound. I first thought it was my playing but I grabbed my other acoustic guitar and played it and I go no buzz. I took a better look and notice the strings in compairison to the fret board have about .9mm off space when I push on the fret.

For a real serious guitar player this guitar is a work in progress but for the price it is not a bad buy if you got the time to put work into it to make the guitar sound perfect. I do like how the wood gain is almost perfectly stright and solid. But at the same time I would of aged the wood longer to give it better deeps.

If your child or you are wanting to learn guitar I would strongly recomend it for that and that alone. But buy an electric tuner because this thing falls out of tune real easy.

If you are a hardcore guitar player like me. I would say look for a different low end guitar this one needs a lot of work to make it play and sound like a high end.

I would give it 3 out of 5 stars

    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.

                Comments about Rogue RA-100D Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

                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!

                          I never actually had the opportunity to give this to my son because it arrived damaged. However, Musician's Friend, was outstanding. They found a replacement guitar and even expedited the shipping so my son would not be disappointed on his birthday.

                          I'll be buying from Musician's Friend again. Great customer service!

                          I bought this guitar because of the price. The first one I received had the top covered in glue. The pickguard had been repositioned leaving a mess. MF quickly sent another guitar. This one has chips out of the paint all over the headstock and lower bout. The black finish was covered in swirls marks. I replaced the strings and gave her a strum. AMAZING !
                          This guitar had an almost perfect setup, easy to play, and sounds great. Fixed most of her looks up with a black marker and some polish. So afterall we buy guitars in this price range to carry about and this guitar's sound and feel will not let you down.

                          I am 51, a professional musician all of my life. I have many guitars and really just wanted to add one that looked a little different and was black. I got way more than I expected for the low cost!!! The guitar is beautiful, well made, stays in tune, and surprisingly has a rich sound which I totally did not expect. I would say Rogue has outdone itself with this low cost line. I would recommend it to anyone for ANY reason! Does not belong in the category of a "cheap guitar." LOVE IT
