I bought this guitar for my wife for her birthday, and she loves it! I have played guitar for 15 years now, and she has always expressed interest in playing, and from time to time picks my guitar up (which is another model by Rogue) and plucks and chords around. However, being slightly smaller framed than I am, she has to stretch out a bit to get to the first few frets.
With this guitar, which is only slightly smaller than my full size, fits her great. It's comfortable for her, made with great quality and care, and best of all it doesn't look like a toy. I am also a full size man, and it is comfortable for me to play to. I'd recommend this to almost any slightly smaller size framed person in a heartbeat. It plays well, comfortable action, and incredible sound quality!

I purchased this as a campfire, take it with me on a whim someplace type of guitar. I had purchased the Rogue full size RA-090 for a family member and that guitar is a fantastic value for quality and sound. So, my hopes were high for the Rogue Starter.

Here are my pros and cons. Pros: The finish looks great. It's light and fits the bill as a a campfire take with you type of guitar.

The cons. The sound quality when strumming and playing sounds muffled and the further down you play on the neck, the notes are either too sharp or too flat. There's no consistency. I changed the stock strings to some D'Adarrio's hoping it would improve the sound quality and I didn't pick up on any noticeable difference.

I have a Fender acoustic folk guitar about the same size and my Fender folk guitar by far and away blows the Rogue Starter out of the park for note quality and projection of sound. That guitar is significantly higher in price, however, the Rogue full size RA-090 in my opinion plays on par with guitars significantly higher in price. So, that's what I expected from the smaller sized Rogue Starter.

You get what you pay for in this: A guitar with a nice finish that looks the part, but one that doesn't have a professional sound. My advice to anyone thinking of buying this particular model who's just starting out should consider purchasing the full size Rogue.

If you're just starting out and don't want to make a heavy investment in a guitar, playing a guitar where the notes and intonation isn't correct will only frustrate you because what you're playing won't sound good. The RA-090 is the way to go if you're looking in this price range. If you're looking for a smaller sized guitar, I would recommend buying a different brand and model.

          I have been playing guitar for 40 years. I bought this guitar to get my granddaughter interested in music. I had no idea how good this guitar really was. I find myself playing it more than any of my 6 very expensive guitars. I thought this was for young novices, but this is a full-blown professional quality guitar to be used by Anyone for any venue.

          Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

          Since 1984, I've been a singer / songwriter and multi instrumentalist, and I record my original songs. As an indie artist, I also sell my music commercially to companies.

          Here is my breakdown on this guitar:

          1) I bought the natural color matte version of the acoustic guitar. I had to only slightly make a very slight adjustment to the neck truss rod (yes, it "does" have one) and the saddle on the bridge and its a really nice "parlor" sized guitar to play.
          2) This guitar uses a "classical" style bridge with "extra light" gauge strings "remember that" ! Do not use heavier gauge strings on this guitar. Also note, that this guitar because of the parlor sized shape, classical bridge and cheaper wood (feels like pine, all around) The guitar is going to have a more bright sound to it, "plus" more sustain in regards to the strings, as again.. it is using a classic bridge.
          3) This guitar is "awesome" in regards to finger picking, and it records well over the air. Recording finger picking on my original songs sounds awesome.

          Look for the following:
          1) The natural matte finish that I went with, may be better than the others because.. remember.. the front of the guitar.. the top wood "vibrates", painted or heavy varnished woods vibrate less.
          2) Check the neck and frets! Also the bridge most likey will need to be lowered as well. if you don't know what to look for, ask a seasoned guitar player or pony up a little bit of money and get the guitar setup by a music shop. If there is any defects, return it to M.F. right away.
          3) Also note, that the sound hole is small.. while I use a great USB studio microphone to record this guitar over the air, my standard sound hole magnetic pickups do not fit. Sometimes I'll use a peizo stick on pickup made by Dean Markley (M.F. sells them here). I may permanently attach it at some point.
          4) Another thing, is the tuners are "open backed" style, If your strings are not staying in tune after a month, "slightly" tighten those philips head screw
