I found this guitar when I was browsing a local shop in Salem CT and fell in love with it. The sound you get is much better than you would expect from the price. I compared it with various acoustic-electrics in the same price range both used and new, and found that the sound was nowhere near as good unplugged. I love the the control you have over the tone of the instrument and the fact that it sounds more resonant than other acoustic electrics.

The best part about this guitar is that it is easy to play. I mainly play electric guitar so acoustics feel a little uncomfortable to me. This has a thinner faster neck that actually feels like the neck of an electric guitar.

The tuners and the nut could be upgraded, but no issues with either. They just feel a little cheap.

Being a heavy gigging professional, I own quite a few high end acoustics, so I was looking for a mid priced acoustic to play, all of my outdoor gigs (here in South Florida) and something not quite as delicate, to hold up in the water front gigs in the salt air. After researching many mid priced/level acoustics, I decided to give the LAG T100ACE a try. Was a shot in the dark, as NO music stores in South Florida carry these in house. The first thing I noticed after removing it from the box, was that there is absolutely NO weight to the guitar, I realize the guitar is constructed of bottom of the line wood, as far as quality, remember, you ALWAYS get what you pay for. IF you want more solid and better cuts of wood, buy a Taylor, Gibson or Laravie. Its plain and simple. The lack of having the weight and feel of a real solid acoustic in my hands, was expected, for a low price tag. I have played acoustics for much less in price, that felt much better in my hands.
There is really no control of the tone from the guitar, only a knob that selects between 5 factory presets, and a bass/treble mix knob. The tone plugged in, was horrible. Now, live, I am using (with my 4 peice acoustic group, a Presonus StudioLive 16.4.2 going through two powered QSC K12's. I do not think there is anything else on the market, better than this PA, in it's price range and I am somewhat of an engineer, so I do know how to dial in good tone. The Shadow (StudioLAG) on board preamp, is absolutely horrible. I think, if you are a strummer doing happy hour gigs, or what ever the gig environment is, and not needing to do any Flat Picking, finger styling or soloing, this would suffice...but only that, and that alone. I would not recommend this guitar to anyone. I have played very cheap acoustics with much better tone, feel and playability than this.
Cosmetically, its a pretty guitar, but if you are a pro, the appearance is irrelevant, it's how the instrument feels, plays and sounds. It strikes out in all three categories. I have never written a negative review towards a product before, this is the first, I really feel i wasted what I paid for it, and because of who I ordered it through, they had to special order it, so there is not return or refund. Live and learn. I hope this review makes a difference. Everyone has their own opinion of how a guitar plays, sounds and feels, but ion addition, I have let almost as dozen of my musician friends play this thing, and ALL have the same opinion. HORRIBLE.

Comments about Lag Guitars T100ACE Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar should be bought in a store given some quality control issues. First one I bought have fingerprint beneath the gloss finish. Second one came with fret buzz not fixable due to various uneven frets. Could not get the action lower. Third one had great action and even frets but had a crack on the top. So it was my strike #3. Ive given up. However this guitar sound fantastic either plugged or unplugged. The studio plus pickup is one of the best Ive heard. A local store work these guitars so as soon as they receive the black model I will go to get one that I can actually can inspect before buying. This will be a great guitar if you find one without quality control issues.

  • Relatively cheap
  • Stays in tune

Best Uses

Comments about Lag Guitars T100ACE Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

i bought this about a year ago in seattle Washington and had to take it by car all the way to St. George Utah and I never had to tune it when i took it out. It is a beautiful guitar and sounds amazing for the price. I compared it to the same price range martin and I chose this one. It is the most underestimated brand by far. amazing workmanship and have never had a problem with it. for anyone who wants a relatively cheap amazing sounding guitar, i recommend this over most guitars of the price range.

    I bought this guitar about a week ago and haven't put it down yet. I love everything about it. I have had to tune it maybe once. I was planning on getting a Taylor 314ce but when I went to a local guitar shop I saw the Lag 66ace and played it and loved it. Then I saw the Lag T100ace and fell for it. This guitar has an extremely sturdy body and the perfect neck thickness. This guitar is wonderful for anyone

    Comments about Lag Guitars T100ACE Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Bought this on advice of a friend who had seen them in Europe. Absolutely beautiful and super light acoustic/electric. The first one came with a loose end-pin jack and it turns out that the shallow body doesn't allow a normal hand to get back inside to tighten - tried everything and finally sent it back. Support was by Korg and they were fantastic - cross shipped a new guitar that was hand checked by their technicians - I was impressed. Being very thin, the acoustic sound is not very full, but it's fine for working out songs and practicing in the house - primarily I use it on stage and there it shines - very light and easy to play and electronics are quite uable. It has a good built in electronic tuner, but the tuning machine heads are incredibly cheap as are the end-pins. Overall I totally got my money's worth - and I get a lot of positive comments on the looks.

    Comments about Lag Guitars T100ACE Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this guitar as a B-Stock ítem in EBay and I regret not getting one new from MF. The one I received had a Little buzz which I took care of and some finger prints like under the finish that won't come out. However, I got it at a 34 percent discount. This guitar is not that loud as another grand auditórium that I have (Eastman AC222CE), but the sound is very refined and takes hard strumming very well. It comes with mahogany binding which is imposible to have in this Price range. The preamp that came with it is the Studio Lag Plus and mine came with bridge pins. The neck is not stain; instead is more like a very light gloss (like the seagulls) which suits very well for me. Also, although the nut width is 43mm it feels very comfortable to play. Anyway I put a capo in the first fret so I can play from the second fret on, which is 1 3/4" wide.

    You won't regret buying this guitar!!!!

    I bought this guitar a year and a half ago and with my 21st coming up I've been shopping around and playing some other lovely guitars. Gibsons, Taylors, Martins and Seaguls up to 5 times the price of this one and still can't really see why I would want to change it. This guitar is very nearly faultless!!

      held off from reviewing until i abused this guitar with a bunch of gigs. this is a great guitar, out of the box: stunning looks, had the studio lag plus electronics (not the noted "studio lag" electronics), nice action and intonation, smooth neck, no sharp frets, came with a decent gig bag (also not mentioned), been playing this guitar at some grueling, sweaty 3 hr. plus gigs, always in tune,takes 2 cheap disc batteries that i haven't had to change yet. can't say enough, supplanted my taylor 314ce as my main giging axe.

          I got my Lag at a local shop, so I did get to play a few of them before I found mine. It really is a great looking, great playing, and great sounding instrument.
          I've had mine for over two years now. I did develop some open string buzz, but the neck responded to the truss rod just as it should. I can't call that a con or a quality control issue with the guitar though; that's just maintaining an instrument.
          I did swap the bridge pins for brass and I just might swap out the nut and saddle with bone. I have not had any tuning issues with the stock machines or any problems with the onboard electronics. As for swapping out parts...I don't know how much a guitar that came with brass pins and bone nut and saddle would cost versus what this Lag goes for. But I enjoy working on my guitars and this guitar is definitely worth the time and the fun fitting a new saddle and nut for it.
          So I sure am happy that I ran into Lag guitars. I like mine so much that I'm going to take a swing and buy the open-box slim line T100ASCE that I'm seeing here on MF.com :-)

          A musician from my band, who has one, advise me to buy it. I have been playing classical guitar from very young age and wanted to have a good quality acoustic -electric
          It was difficult to find LAG reviews but I gave it a chance. I fell in love the first minute I played it !!!
          I had to wait almost 2 month because it was in back order but I'm happy I did.

          Comments about Lag Guitars T100ACE Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Picked this up at a music shop in Italy four or five years ago for around Euro 250 when I decided to start playing guitar again after a couple of decades or so. I tried several different brand/ models in the price range, and this slightly-smaller bodied LAG felt/sounded the best to my arms and ears. (I'm tall - 1.93m, or 6'3" but not much range in stretching my long, thin fingers.)
          I used the LAG frequently until recently buying a Taylor 512ce (grand symphony model, identical size and shape) but have rarely used it plugged in. The few times I did, the pre-selected tones from the on-board pre-amp came in handy for a non-pro, non-gigging player who just wants to jam with friends.
          Tuners: ditto on the criticisms. They are plastic and feel a bit cheapie, but not the worst place for LAG to have cut corners if they are going to sell a decent guitar at a good price. For less than Euro 30, I replaced them with decent metal tuners, even though it already held its tuning pretty well with the originals.
          The LAG's nut is narrower than most acoustics I've played, so it can feel a bit cramped up in the cowboy chords. But it's the same width as an electric like a strat or tel, so for a lot of people this could be more advantage than a problem.
          Other than that, the action is low, the fretboard straight, neck very comfortable, and I really like the sound, especially with heavier-gauge strings. To my non-professional ear, it has a good ring when strummed (the cedar top has a nice warm tone), compared with my Taylor (spruce top), where I hear more definition of each string.
          In fact, now being able to compare the LAG over time with the solid-body Taylor, I can see how the LAG might come up short for some people. But when I consider that the Taylor cost nearly 10x as much, it's hard not to keep liking the LAG.
