I tuned it up and found it to be just OK, with very corroded strings, a cheap set of sticky tuners, and very cheap plastic saddle and string nut. Since I'm skilled at instrument set-up, these were all changed out immediately. I installed a Tusq nut, and a nice bone bridge saddle to the proper height for me, and a new set of Custom-Light Martin SP's - - now this thing really came to life. Amazing tone and sustain (due in part to the new nut and saddle), and the intonation up and down the neck seems perfect. This little guitar is a total joy to play, and it has that sought-after pre-1940's blues tone to die for. Like one of the old Stella 3/4-sized in tone, but this thing is actually X-braced and built right so it should last for years! The big brass frets are a plus, and the neck is comfortable and plays like butter. Finish is flawless, and the body is in a nice Walnut stain with black binding (not painted). The bridge is pinless, and is actually bolted-on black painted wood (not plastic as some have stated). It stays in tune pretty well, and I am totally impressed with this little guy as a guitar to keep propped up in the corner to play when the inspiration hits me. I have several high-quality guitars (Yairi, Blue Ridge, Gibson, etc.) and have been playing for 50+ years professional, so I know guitars. I find myself picking up this little Rogue more than my others now, so "Beginner" guitar is a bit misleading on this one. I would surely recommend this to anyone who needs a good 12-fret small guitar for studio work or just knocking around the house. I've had it in a few jam sessions and everyone is blown away by the sound and how well it plays. I am planning on using it in the studio soon, and expect it's remarkable sustain to be a major plus on leads. Nothing to be ashamed of here, but be aware that these will need some major set-up before they are made easily playable, as with any guitar. And, at this price point - - what do you expect? Bottom line, a well-built little guitar suitable for just about anyone, including seasoned players and pros. Good job, Rogue!!! I may have to pick up the red one sometime down the road. Maybe I just got lucky and got a good one, but again for the money it just can't be beat anywhere.
Nicely-built all around, scalloped braces, traditional X-braced top, clean workmanship inside (but strong glue smell initially), perfect gloss Poly finish to body and neck. Fairly wide brass frets, fully bound body, no fingerboard markers (but does have side dots) even has an adjustable tension rod for neck relief that works perfectly, access at headstock. Painted wooden bridge (pinless-type, bolted and glued on) and painted black wood fingerboard. 12-fret neck/body joint. Big soundhole marquetry inlay design, and a simple black celluloid pickguard. Plywood top, back and sides (Birch?) of nice quality and graining, with a very nice brown (Walnut) stain. Quite attractive!
Seems to be built like a tank, to decent quality standards. Tuning machines (Individual open-type) were hard to turn, sticky junk, as was the plastic nut, saddle & end pin (pretty cheap, indicitive of a beginner's guitar) and the interior lining strips were just just that (thin strip of plywood instead of the usual heftier segmented lining, but they should hold up OK) - - thus the 8 in Quality here.
After some serious set-up and tweaking, this is simply an awesome little guitar suitable for jam sessions or even recording purposes. It is well-suited for blues and folk, and has that small-bodied sound of the 30's and 40's made popular by the smaller "Stella"-style 3/4-sized instrument. Great for finger-picking and also for lead. Just a fantastic player, and sounds really, really good for plywood, and for $$- - - just an incredible value. This thing is basically built as good or better than guitars of other more well-known brands at 10X the price!!

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.

Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased six of the Rogue 7/8 scale starter guitars about a year and a half ago to use for a school guitar club for 7th and 8th graders. The guitars are a good fit for boys and girls in that age group (12-14). For a younger child, I would go with a Baby Taylor or a Martin LX1 even though they would be significantly more expensive because they would both be smaller than the 7/8 scale Rogue Starter Guitars. The Rogue starter guitars' quality is about what you can expect from such an economically priced instrument. The tuning machines are bargain quality at best, so you can expect to be tuning them every practice session. The sound is also pretty inconsistent between the six instruments. The natural finish model seems to have a slightly better sound than the painted models I purchased. I ordered one in every color of the rainbow, but the two or three kids that know a little about guitars always go for the natural finish version first. I would however recommend these guitars for the parent that has a child that is interested in trying the guitar. Until the child feels the sting of steel strings, you just don't know whether they truly have their heart in it. More expensive guitars have better action with easier playability, but the Rogue Starter Guitar is a good, economical way to determine just how much your child really wants to learn acoustic guitar.

    Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar was purchased for use when I'm visiting my family and it's not feasible to take my own guitar. I didn't want to spend a lot on something that won't get played all that much. It arrived in great condition, and was quite nice looking. No visible problems, and it looked like it cost more than it did. The first tuning went slowly, and it had to be retuned several times the next few days, but that's true of most new strings and guitars. But after about a week of playing, the strings had been worn in a bit and the tuning was consistent. It's not as good with the full rich sound I'm used to with my better, mid-range Yamaha, but still the sound was pleasant. Better than I hoped it would be for this price-point! (Frankly, I was a little worried it would sound tinny or like a baritone Uke, but it did not. It sounded like a decent acoustic.) I actually came to prefer this smaller size to my regular size guitar. For such a good instrument, I'm sorry it will only get use those few times a year when I'm visting family. However, during those visits, it will get loved and played a lot.

      Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

      nice lil beater guitar for under fifty buckaroos. creaky tuners and "plasticky" finish. i have the walnut finish and it doesn't quite look like the pic on the MF site. Saddle needed to be sanded down some to get a playable action (for me). I think that's a normal and expected thing. I'm not sure if the fingerboard is real wood. looks ok. fret ends are decently finished. the plastic nut seems ok. The sound/resonance is surprisingly good. Bottom line, for a playable guitar that you're not worried about ding'ing up, I'd say it's definitely worth the less than fifty buckaroos price.

      Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

      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!

          Comments about Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar:

          I own vintage acoustics as well as Taylors and wanted a smaller travel/camping guitar. Read many of the reviews on this Rogue and took a chance (I have had previous experience owning other Rogues and was impressed; 12 string, OM cutaway, Mandolin). I'm happy to say this one is a good one. Though it's their most inexpensive Rogue guitar, it sounds as good as more expensive guitars. Easy to play, loud, crisp tone, notes sustain. Mine had no sharp frets, stays in tune, no buzzing, good intonation. In fact, I've bought and then sold many solid top guitars that didn't sound as good as this. Like a lot of things there may be a few duds but overall, if you get a good one, you will be happy.
