Epiphone DR-100Amazing product, informational instructions are easy to follow. Great beginner guitar. Bought it for my 15 yearold son and he loves it. The Epiphone DR-100 looks and sounds beautiful. This was the best online customer service I've ever had. Very customer oriented. I will definitely purchase from Sweetwater in the future! You all are fantastic! Keep up the great work!!!

AmazingThis is truly a wonderful and affordable starter guitar. Also good for campfire playing because its loud and if it gets damaged its not a very expensive guitar. If you play gigs I would not recommend it as I said a starter guitar. Would recommend it for beginners as a touring musician.

One word.... FantasticThis guitar is an affordable incredible music device. It sounds as great as a much more expensive guitar. I love it, it's gorgeous too. The strings provided may need to be swapped for better ones. Truss rod may need to be adjusted. Other than that it sounds good. Also the action may need to be changed depending on your style of playing.

Un-matched Quality for the PriceThis is my 4th Epiphone purchase since 1970 and the quality of this guitar has not changed. I purchased this one for a new guitar student and dropped by Sweetwater in Ft. Wayne to handle it. Strings low to the frett board make this insturment easy to play whether your a beginner or seasoned guitarist. The sales staff are top of the line as well as their facility. Back to the guitar...The sales rep. was up-front as he informed me that the tuning keys could stand to be up-graded (which I agree), however; the DR-100 stays in tune and has nice rich tones. For a sweet deal, I recommend both the Epiphone DR-100 and Sweetwater Music.com.

Fantastic valueI was just looking for a replacement acoustic to my Yamaha F335. When I picked up this guitar at the local shop, I didn't expect much. But then I played it and was completely shocked- the guitar sounds incredible. It's also very well-made and feels solid. There are no action/intonation problems to report, no sharp frets, nothing is wrong with this instrument. Plus, the natural finish is wonderful (the ebony finish is also well-done. The sunburst could be better, but it's nice). The finish on the neck, really nice. Doesn't grab your hand or anything. Whether it be for your beginner guitar player, a backup acoustic, or just an acoustic to have around, for $100, you absolutely cannot ggo wrong.
I'm definitely going to see how well it records, then re-review.

simply unbelieveableI've been playing guitar now for about a decade but had kinda fallen off for a while (life)... i was very skeptical about this guitar cuz of the price but i said s**** it for the price what do i got to lose ill try it. this guitar is great just about perfect for my playing style im not the biggest person in the world so i like the smaller body of it but the sound that comes out is huge!!! (fitting to my personality) ive been so happy n nobody can believe what i paid for it after playing ive even installed pickups on this beast. customer service is great really make you feel good bout your purchase n more like your not just another number r sale to them they give a crap. ill keep buying from here for years

Great guitar..BETTER SERVICE.I bought this guitar and some other stuff, because i quit playing a couple months ago and wanted to start again. First off the guitar when I got it I was amazed on how nice the finish really was. Its a beautiful guitar. The strings on it were actaully not bad but I switched it for my favorite Ernie Ball super slinky and now it plays even better. Came pretty good set up out of the box. Tighten the truss rod just a tad but that was it. It has a awesome sound to it, its different but in a really good way. I LOVE THIS GUITAR. Second was sweet waters amazing service. This company is awesome and I will ALWAYS shop with them fast shipping, better then guitar center and musicansfriends hands down. Keep doing what your doing sweetwater.

Great beginners guitar!The Epiphone DR-100 is an excellent beginners guitar. It is very forgiving on the frets and is easy to play. For a $100.00 guitar you can't beat the price. I was surprised at the sound that this guitar provided. The sound was full and rich, something I was not expecting. Again, this is a great guitar for any player who is starting out and for the price if you end up not liking or don't want to play your not out a lot of money. The only bad thing about this guitar is the size of the frets. The neck and frets are little in the big size which made playing certain chords and notes very difficult and that is the only reason why I moved "up" in my guitar. Other then that, this is a great guitar at a great price.
