I bought my Fender DG-9 to replace my Yamaha F-310. I looked at other Yamahas, Epiphones, Alvarez, Takamines. I've been very happy with my selection. I would recommend a Fender DG-9 to anyone buying an entry level guitar.

I have a Fender DG-9. It's a 6 string acoustic with a light tone natural finish.
The action is very good for an acoustic. The strings lie very close to the neck without buzzing on any frets, no matter where on the neck I'm playing. I noticed a difference in playability when I began playing barre chords.
The Fender has a bright tone, sort of like you might find in a Martin. I like to use it for playing rythm, or just gently strumming chords. The tone sounds very nice.
The intonation is fine. I haven't had to adjust the neck. The tuners are holding up well. The strap button is gentle reminder that this guitar is priced at entry level.
If you are looking for a good, reliable, sweet sounding guitar this is the one. Durable, beautiful, and awesome sound are just a few of the great qualities. It can be purchased from almost any guitar dealer and at such a great price why pass it up?

My Fender DG-9 was manufactured in China. It has a satin-finished mahogany body, spruce top, and finished off with a rosewood fretboard. This is a 6-String Dreadnought beauty with chrome covered tuners and 20 frets. The scale length is 25.3" and the neck width is 1.69".
My guitar is suitable for any player. It has the latitude to be used to learn playing or used for an expert playing a concert. The weight and fretboard style make plaing any style a breeze.
The sound in this acoustic guitar is sharp and full. It's bright and warm and perfect for any type of playing.
This guitar has held up better than any other I have ever had. The tuners have stayed like new through many string changes and the strings are still held tightly in place. This guitar was made to last.
