I bought this the last time it was on sale, a week or two ago. I've been playing for 25 years and I have a few guitars that are in the $900+ range, but I wanted something cheap that I can let friends borrow or just bring on car trips without having to worry if it gets beat up. With that said, it sounds really good. It's super loud and has a nice bright sound. Also, as far as acoustics go, it's easy to play, because the action is low (the strings are close to the neck, so you don't have to press too hard). I do like this color more than the sunburst one that I got. I'm just gonna do the Tom DeLonge (Blink-182 guitarist) thing though, and spray paint it and burn it a little. You should be happy with this guitar. Your kid should like it, too. Here's a video review from a highly respected guitarist. https://youtu.be/NzkMOTb7Tr8

Thanks for posting. I was hoping this deal would come back soon. I think I like this color better.

I'm not a skilled player, but I enjoy putting some chords together. Plus I have a really smart 4 1/2 year old who is showing interest. This will help me get them started with some lessons.

As a fellow guitar guy, that guitar sounds amazing for sub $200. I don't play these days but I went through 12 or so guitars. This reply says all you need to know.

This monoprice guitar with case and accesories was $63 with coupon a couple of days ago. I figured it must've not been good as the case and stuff are around $20 by themselves on Amazon.

I got the sunburst model from the prior deal. It sounds very nice for a $90 guitar. The finish work leaves a little to be desired but cant complain for the price. I own/have owned acoustics ranging from $500-$5000. For the price this cant be beat Wink btw anyone have any suggestions on a good and cheap case (not gig bag) for this? Else i guess ill resort to a gig bag since its such an inexpensive guitar anyway

The main difference is the Monoprice one is a nylon string classical guitar. Its a different instrument in my opinion.

Quote from JawBreaker44 :
As a general rule, don't buy an ACOUSTIC guitar without *hearing* it.

But for $89 ... whadda ya expecting, ya know?

But you wouldn't buy a set of speakers without actually HEARING what they sound like, right?

With an electric guitar ... you can run it through a tube pre-amp plug it in a Marshall add echo and reverb and on and on and on ..

An acoustic guitar ..

Yeah, ya kinda gotta hear it.

Know what I mean?

Just as a rule what I have found in life.
This is also super subjective and variable, as even small things like a difference in humidity will change how acoustics sound over time.

You might bring it home and have a completely different sounding guitar. Sometimes, it's just a matter of going with your gut and budget.

Luckily, a lot of the sound can be influenced by the strings. An under $20 mod and your cheap guitar can sound completely different.

That's definitely true. This video [youtube.com] was included in the original thread.

Nice deal anyone know who adoroma uses to ship with. Is signature required upon delivery? I am going on vacation and not sure when this will arrive. Says 7 to 10 days so I might be cutting close.
Thanks
