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!

Pay for the next Rogue up and right now it is the same price and the one above it is a dreadnaught and it survived a tour in Iraq and is now used in a church in Uganda. Awesome piece of art.
It's that, a starter guitar. Like the other raters said, some got good action some don't. I ordered two, one had good action, the other did not. I now see cracks in the back finish giving the impression it is not solid wood or plywood even, it is particle board and veary easy to break. Both guitars have chunks broken out of the back of the guitars and hardly even used. I put them in my classroom and my students are rough on them, but one looks like it was kicked, but I didn't see it. The back of the guitar is fragile and proven when a chip broke off the back of the second guitar with just playing for five minutes. The students are afraid to play them because they fear getting blamed for the crumbling backs.
CHeap is cheap and these are cheap. I had a Rogue guitar free with guitar strings and thought these were like that one, but not so.
High action and fragile wood.

          We bought this for our granddaughter. My husband has played guitars for 55 yrs. and feels this is perfect for her to learn with. It tuned well and held the tune. The wood was a bit thin so caution has to be taken in handling it but all in all we are very pleased.

                  I bought this guitar about 10 years ago for around 30. I like the 1 3/4 neck and the 12 Fret guitar. I've adjusted the action a few times over the years so it plays nice and easy. I removed the cheap pick guard and replaced the replaced the cheap plastic bridge. This is a fun small guitar to have around for fingerpicking. Not a great strumming guitar. Sounds kind of boxy when strumming. Great guitar to keep out and have it around all this time. Mine is well constructed and can take a beating and still stay intact. Stays in tune pretty well also. For the price I'd stay it's a good deal.

                  This is my first guitar so I don't have much to go on. The thing sound much better than my lack of skill can demonstrate. It works and for a complete beginner like me on a bare bones budget I don't think you can go wrong with this guitar. Once again full disclosure I have nothing to compare it to but it tends to hold tune and you have to start somewhere.

                  I ordered this guitar for my son as it looked so great. On website its mentioned as 7/8 but its actually feel like full size. I alredy have another guitar of 7/8 size and its about 2 inches larger. So i returned this item.

                  The finishing of this product is good and feels good in hand. Due to "non friendly" policy of muscianfriend, i had to pay the return shipping even the specs of this product are not correct

                  Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

                  Rogue is the new Stella! Back in the 1920's and 1930's, the old birch-bodied Stella guitars were the main staple of the hobo bluesmen of the Mississippi Delta. The Rogue Starter Acoustic is its contemporary cousin! Althouth made in China, it has a remarkable sound for being an inexpensive instrument. The action is high enough for bottleneck work, but not so high as to make finger-style uncomfortable. And it even comes with Martin strings! This is a great campfire guitar, and will be at home in any hobo jungle or juke joint. For the musician that can't afford a Taylor or a Martin, grab a Rogue and never look back! You'll be glad you did.

                        This was a gift for my granddaughter. I had ordered the wrong color, no problem, was helped & walked thru everything to return & receive another color. Have never experienced the helpfulness with another company as I received with Musican's. I appreciate your thoughtfulness very very much. FYI: so glad I found out about your company on the web.

                          It's first of all its cheap and a starter guitar I bought for my daughter.I am a firm believer you start cheap and work your way up to a taylor,Martin, and so on. The tuning thing I'm not going to worry about and haven't had an issue yet with, I'm not worrying about it because it's a good way to teach her how to work a tuner and tune it herself. The sound is remarkably good for the price durability it seems like it could also take a few knocks. It has a good look and if I would of bought it for a traveler use its something im not going to hulk out in frustration if a cataclysmic event occurs. The bottom line is for the money I dare you to find better a better acoustic that you're child can learn on or that you can use on an impromptu camping/float trip. You're not!
