I bought this guitar to save my "good" guitars from the ravages of outdoor jams..sort of a beater. To my surprise it has become one of my favorites, in every way its as nice to play as my others, sometimes I get tired of the eggroll jokes, but the sound of this soon shuts them up, trouble is I'm looking again for a beater. considering the price its as good as it gets!
Model Year: 2003
Price: $450.00 (new)
Where Obtained: on-line guitar
Made in china by/for Saga instruments, antiqued finish with dalmation pick guard, dreadnaught style guitar patterned after a D-28, fancy headstock inlays, kluson type butterbean tuners, no electrics
Action was suitable right out of the box although I have since raised it a bit for some more volume, plays exceptionally well, a couple of minor finish flaws but the excellent playability more than makes up for it. I own two gibsons and a couple of customs and it plays as well
Sound is amazing,clear bright bass and crisp trebles, makes for nice acoustic lead work that can be heard without an excessive attack
With just a few months playing durability remains to be seen, but I bought it to play at jams which have been in, out, night, damp and or hot and I have had no problems so far..stays in tune in all these situations
