“The Price Is Right!.....”

Written on: 09/06/2013

I bought my Falcon second-hand from a cash-conversion shop. It was dusty and very obviously had been hanging on the wall a fair while. I tried it-wildy out of tune. Tuned it to drop-D,tried again. I was pleasantly surprised at the 'brightness' of it's tone. NO fret buzz,even though a few of the frets were less than smooth.The strings have been replaced,as the strings of ANY 2nd-hand guitar should be. While they were off,the frets were checked and where necessary smoothed. Now,it plays as well… Read Full Review

“Dismal!”

Written on: 30/12/2011

Upon first buying the guitar I was impressed by it's apperance however unfortunatley, I wish I could say the same about the actual quality of the product. The guitar need vigurosouly re-tuning everyday and the actual body of the guitar crush into my solar plexus alot. The re-stringng process is what really made me lose it! The guitar was almost impossible to re-string and after trying every method under the sun to fit the strings back into the guitar I eventually gave up. After sending John… Read Full Review

“not good!”

Written on: 27/07/2011

After having the guitar for a few months it needs tuning practically every day and then eventually it wont tune. As soon as its in tune the strings snap and the restringing design is absoloutly terrible, you need to put your hand through the hole (wich has very little space for moving around) and then try and thread the string through to the top! Seriously dont get it!… Read Full Review

After a few months - you should have already changed your strings a few times.
Restringing a falcon is just the same as any other acoustic guitar. Even £3500 Martins.

Either you are buying cheap strings or you are doing something very wrong. I have a few guitars and one of these [actually a Montana Jag 6100 but it's the same guitar] to bash about with. I bought it secondhand for £20, cleaned it up, lowered the action, put some decent Elixir strings on it that came off my 1975 Epiphone FT-150 Bard [put La Bella Silk & Steels on that], and it plays really quite well. It's not loud and articulate like a Guild, but it cost pennies, and it's quite full bodied in its sound, if a wee bit muddled. As far as stringing the intrument, you don't put your hand into the soundhole [I suppose you could], but take a bridge pin out and pop the string in through the top, replacing the pin. Yes, some strings have big ends on them that necessitate going through the soundhole. Simply, don't buy them. Lastly, new strings go out of tune even on a good guitar. However, if you are stringing almost any guitar correctly it will not go out of tune badly by itself after the strings have settled in. Lots of things can affect strings staying in tune so don't blame the guitar just because it is cheap.

I'd even buy another one,you see I've tried some 300-400 £ Corts or Ibanez that sound like s*** compared to the Falcon !! For a backup or beginner guitar,I'd definetely reccomend buying one (or even two).Best value for money ever… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2011

Bought for me as a Christmas gift. First impressions were good, on closer inspection not so good. Poor paint work, overspray in the sound hole, fingerboard poorly finished with black paint, binding cracking, machineheads are very poor. Other points are the materials, the actual body must be made from the thinest wood ever! Lifted it and it hardly touched my Sg and it cracked! CRAZY! finally neck to think and badly contructed.

So, for 50 quid people would say its ok, but for a little bit more… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/06/2008

The Falcon FG100 is a great guitar at a remarkable price (I managed to pick mine up at a mere £35 including delivery)

The sound of the guitar is open and bright. The strings are easily played and well fitted. The overall build is solid, although some of the parts do seem slightly 'cheap' compared to other more expensive models, such as my Tanglewood.

The body of the Falcon is actually slightly thinner than my Tanglewood which makes it more comfortable to hold.

If you are looking for a… Read Full Review

Looks good and sounds good although I think the Falcon neck is slightly to big. Very nice but would be better if neck slightly smaller and body slightly smaller

Written on: 09/02/2007 by jonhutson (1 review written)

Overall this is a great buy for anyone looking for a guitar in the sub £100 price range. I'd recomended changing strings to phosphor bronze, this gives a much better sound than the odd steel ones it comes with. Also, for the confident person, sanding off 1-2mm from the bridge will help lower the action. But be careful not to take to much off and make sure you confident that your takling the job correctly as I suspect getting a replacement bridge may not be so easy.

Now available on the web… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2006 by soulman (1 review written)

Falcon acoustics offer the inexperienced or novice acoustic player the chance to enjoy the experience of playing a full size, full bodied dreadnought style acoustic guitar, at a totally affordable price.

Falcon acoustic guitars have a very warm and clean sound; just what you would want from a good quality acoustic guitar. Also, the Falcon acoustic guitars look traditional, but the dexterity of this instrument is far more advanced. This is because many styles of music can be played on this… Read Full Review

The Falcon is playable and very cheap. Ideal for a cheap start to guitar, but as soon as you start to improve you will (like me) realize you need a better guitar. Its like - using a wood saw to cut down a tree it's fine until you realize that 'chain saws' have been invented… Read Full Review
