Good beginners' guitar

Pros

  • Good Construction

Cons

  • Does Not Maintain Tune
  • Poor Quality Strings

Best Uses

  • Beginners' Guitar

Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

Upon delivery the neck had a nasty bow in it and the action was way too high. The purchase price was competitive but by the time you add the cost of new strings and a professional setup the revised cost equals that of other similar models.

    Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

    The Fender DG8S pack is an amazing way to get started playing the acoustic guitar. Not only do you get a great entry-level guitar with a solid top and very nice sound, you get the added value of a gig bag, a tuner, strings, string winder, picks, a strap and even an instructional DVD. This package would be great for anyone who ever wanted to learn acoustic, or just to get a good acoustic guitar for a great price.

        Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

        It's amazing what you can get for $200 these days. Solid top dreadnaught Fender with accessories included? Yes, please. This is the perfect starter guitar or camping guitar. It played easily, and the tone was much better than I expected for the price tag. The X style bracing lends itself to a nice rich tone. The intonation was correct, the action was just right. This is a great pack for the value.

        Great tone - Great price

        Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

        Comes with everything you need to start your new hobby or music career. With a solid spruce top and quartersawn "X" bracing the Fender DG8 outshines other guitars in its price bracket. Superb starter acoustic or if you just need a guitar to take to cabin. Really warm tone, with exceptional clarity. Offered in multiple finishes to cater to individuality. Still cannot believe this tone only cost $200... Unreal.

          Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

          First off, for $199.99, and the guitar comes with a solid spruce top! That solid spruce top and scalloped X bracing is what makes this guitar give off a warm tone. The mahogany back and sides does contribute also. Anyone looking for the perfect first guitar, this is it. The die-cast tuners are truly reliable. Plus you get all the accessories you will need for your first guitar.

            The Fender DG8S pack has always been a great buy much in part for the amount of learning tools that are provided. The only thing that is needed is your time to practice. The solid spruce top provides you with the most superior tone in its class and will outshine many other guitars at the same price.

              Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

              Pretty much all you need in one package! It's pretty hard to think of anything short of a guitar stand that this package doesn't come with. The fact that it comes with a tuner is AWESOME! For anyone just starting out, child or adult, this thing is really great. For the price i see no other comparable option when it comes to quality and what you get for your money; this package is literally ready to play and gig right out of the box, and it doesn't sound too bad either! Don't expect it to sound like $2000 guitar, but the quality is right for the price, little better even. Deffinetely a great gift to anyone looking to start playing!

                Comments about Fender DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package:

                The DG8S Acoustic Guitar Package from Fender is yet another great product from Fender aimed at introducing the beginner or first time player to the iconic brand.

                Not only do you get a quality acoustic guitar with a solid top, "X" bracing, and Graph Tech Nut, you get everything you need to start playing right now! You get a gig bag, strap, extra strings, picks, tuner and even an instructional DVD!

                As for the guitar, you get some nice appointments: solid spruce top, modern "X" bracing for improved tone, rosewood fingerboard - all the features people look for in a good acoustic.

                Right out of the box the guitar played well. The neck was comfortable and not too thick, the action was low and great for chording, and the guitar sounded nice and full.

                All in all you can't beat what you get for your money with this pack! You could spend a LOT more rounding up all the pieces, but Fender saves you that trouble! It's all right here!

                This is a REAL, hands-on product review from Matt @ Sam Ash San Antonio!
