Written on: 21/09/2010

A well-made, low action, good looking and attractively priced guitar, though it actually sounds very boxy and thin to my ears. This has it's uses, it's very good for country sounds and slide guitar, and the action is bliss if you play in open tunings. It has a lot of character, and if this is what you're looking for you can't go wrong. But it wouldn't be my first choice for most stuff. In the price range, the Epiphone AJ100 and the Wasburn D100 both far outperform it, I feel… Read Full Review

My first guitar in 2005. I thought it was difficult to play for a beginner and have had a couple of guitars since. I've gone back to playing it over and over again and it seems to sound better everytime. A very solid guitar with a beautiful deep sound.It will always be my favourite… Read Full Review

I've taken mine on stage with me everywhere and it never lets me down, always comes up top trumps. I have a few other acoustics which were more expensive, but for durability, play-abilty and general fun this guitar stands out like a sore thumb!… Read Full Review

Ideal for older beginner players who will have stronger fingers but maybe not so much for younger learners as it is. However, as I said, this guitar can be modified to make it more playable for younger players… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2005 by Freds (1 review written)

The Fender DG5, although not quite the DG-100, the DG-5 is a great guitar to play on whether your going for a nice soulful bluesy sound or a good swingin western (if you like western). I particularaly liked the feel of the finger board, it has a waxy texture so it makes it pleasent to slide your fingers along the neck when moving frets.
However this guitar does have its bad points as does every guitar (apart from the DG-100).
