The Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Pack includes everything you need to start playing today.

Fender has made their top-selling DG8S Acoustic Pack even better by upgrading its full-sounding, easy-playing dreadnought guitar with even finer features. These include a slightly re-shaped pickguard and rosewood bridge that give a nod to the Fender acoustics of the 1970s, new 3mm dot markers that lend an elegant touch to the fretboard, and a simple-but-striking mother-of-pearl acrylic rosette.

Other features of the Fender DG8S include a solid spruce top with scalloped and quartersawn "X" bracing for balanced tone, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck with 20-fret rosewood fretboard, neck and body binding, and Graphtech Nubone nut and compensated bridge saddle.

The Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Pack includes everything needed to start playing, with gig bag, chromatic electronic tuner, strings, picks and strap and instructional DVD.

          Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

          Almost every guitar company has their own guitar package. While most are of average quality, with some falling into the poor category, this guitar completely blows all other packages out of the water.

          For 200 bucks you get a Solid Spruce Top (Will sound better over time for those of you who are new to guitars) A satin finish neck (no high gloss to slow you down!) and a Tuner, most of which are 30 dollars and up!

          I cannot recommend this guitar enough. If you are considering learning guitar, do yourself a favor and don't let yourself buy anything BUT this guitar.

          This is a great way to get started. Comes with all the accessories you need to get playing, including Rock Prodigy Lite App. Solid top allows the guitar sound to improve with age. Relatively easy to play for a starter guitar.

            Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

            Fender offers a great value with the DG8 package. The guitar is an ideal entry level instrument in that it's setup great from the factory, stays in tune, and has a great tone for its' price point. The solid spruce top is an essential feature to this guitar. Some cheaper builds will use a laminate top to keep price down, but really just cheapens the tone. This guitar is very well balanced and is great for a student guitar player as they begin to understand the tonal range of their instrument. Besides being a solid guitar at a solid price, this package includes almost every accessory a new guitar player will need. I would still recommend getting a guitar stand so that your instrument is safe and ready to grab when not traveling.

However, this small setup still plays like any full size accoustic! For a low price, you can get everything you need start out!

                        This is a great deal. Solid wood top and all of the package goodies! You can't go wrong. It has a good feel and a good look to it. It produces that dreadnaught sound very well. This has a solid overall sound and feel. The tuners hold up well and keep this guitar in tune. This is a hands on review from Zak at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.
