Wow, great guitar for the price!

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 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.

            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.

              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.

                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.
