Guest's review of Falcon FG100

★★★★☆

“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 as ANY acoustic in my collection-but at a peanut price! This stuff about needing constant retuning...well,if you leave the original strings on,yes. They're not great.. A decent set solves that. Yes,the body is thin-but a thicker body does NOT necessarily mean a good tone,that depends mightily on the quality of materials used.All-in-all a good instrument for a small price.
Ok-a precis; good guitar for it's money-change the o/e strings and be very happy-don't expect Martin quality for Mickey Mouse money and you'll be ok.
