Found this sale when I was looking for a starter guitar for my son for Christmas. This was recommended in several guitar sites as a good starting option for kids and is normally $59.99. Just a note that Guitar Center will price match if you call it in.

Would not recommend, it is worth spending a little more on something of higher quality.

When my son took guitar I got Mitchell 3/4 size for $89 (regular $160) and you can't compare to rogue.

Or you can find used Yamaha on CL.

I only had 1 rogue guitar and the headstock broke of just sitting in corner, by it self...... Intonation sucked even before it broke....

I think Rogue is a "better" cheap guitar, as does my co-worker that's been playing for years.
It's BETTER, but still not great. The action on my $40 Rogue is not great. It was my first guitar that I had for about a year before picking up an Epiphone electric. After having played the electric for a little while now, I just can't go back to the action on the Rogue. It takes about 3 times as much pressure to press the strings down, so it's more difficult to learn on (for me).

TL;DR - They're OK, but not great. If I could, I'd spend more to start out, assuming you plan to stick with it.

Considered that but this is for a boy who has never played and does not know he is getting one. This is going to be my "test the waters" guitar. If he likes playing and wants to pursue I will definitely get a higher quality guitar but for the initial run here I don't want to buy a nicer one just to have him decide it's not for him and end up taking a loss on CL.

Ok, I'd say this would be a good choice for a situation like that.
The downside for me was that I had trouble playing some chords due to how difficult the action is, but it was great to give me an idea if it was something I wanted to stick with or not. Peace

you're comparing the action of an acoustic to an electric?

Had a rogue guitar and mandolin. Bridge separated on the guitar, but the mandolin is going strong in the corner of my parents basement never getting played.

This guitar will need to be set up, hopefully not to the extent of you having to pay someone else to do it. Get familiar with your truss rod and what not to do, as well as how to fix various issues with fret buzz. Limit expectations

Spend an extra $20, and get this Rogue instead:
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/gu...tic-guitar

The best beginner guitar for the money bar none. I've had mine for years, they are built like tanks, taken them on camping trips, and they've been thoroughly abused by my kids since it's sitting in plain view in the the living room. Still play good as new.

While the tone will never be confused with a $3000 Martin, it is good where it counts for a beginner: neck is comfy, frets are level and not sharp, tuners hold tune well, it doesn't warp over time. Action is wonderful after an easy set up (all it needed was a truss rod turn).

I have a rogue and love it. You have to adjust the saddle and nut but once thats done it plays just as nice as my Martin. In fact I play my rogue more than my other acoustics Bc I don't care if it gets knocked over or banged up.
