Fender FA-115 Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

The Fender FA-115 is a solid top acoustic guitar that comes with a mahogany body and white binding on the edges of the guitar. The scale length of this accoustic is 25.3 inches which makes it fairly small compared to other standard sized models. The neck has 20 frets, but you can get one with … Read more

Alvarez Regent RD26 Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

Now onto the main test – how does it sound for fingerpicking? Well to cut to the chase, I can’t believe how good this guitar sounds for fingerstyle. It’s so well balanced in terms of bass, mids, and treble it’s almost impossible to find any serious flaws. But I’ll try to anyway… First off it’s … Read more

Ibanez AEG50N Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

The Ibanez AEG50N is a simple, basic dreadnought guitar that offers great quality and high playability at an entry-level price. It features a spruce top and mahogany back and sides finished in natural gloss for a gorgeous look and excellent tone.

Fender CD-60S Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

This is a review of the Fender CD-60S acoustic guitar. This guitar is basically identical to the dreadnought-sized Fender CD-140SCE model that I reviewed last year, except the body wood on the CD-60S uses laminate sides rather than solid mahogany. The specs are otherwise virtually identical—it has 20 frets, a thinner 1 11/16″ nut width … Read more

Oscar Schmidt OG2FBC-A-U Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

The guitar had a natural finish with nobody binding which made it look very attractive. The color of the wood was almost like honey and the top part of the guitar is solid cedar which helps add to the better sound. There isn’t any truss rod cover on this model as it may draw away … Read more

Squier by Fender SA-150 Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

Squier by Fender is a subsidiary of guitar giant Fender. With almost two hundred years of experience, it’s safe to assume they know how to make a guitar. That being said, I certainly wasn’t expecting this level of quality at the SA-150’s price point. For its price range, the finish on the body was flawless … Read more

Fender FA1-115 Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

I am rating the Fender FA-115  acoustic guitar at 10/10 for bang for your buck. It’s not often that you get a full-sized dreadnought under $100 with a solid spruce top and built-in tuner, let alone quality tonewoods up and down. The Fender FA1 is capable of very loud volume with rich, deep bass. If … Read more

YAMAHA FD01S Acoustic Guitar Review 2022

Out of the box, this is a very impressive-looking instrument. Its cutaway design gives you easy access to the upper frets. The lacquered spruce top boasts quite an intricate grain pattern, and it really does look good with the white binding around it. On closer inspection, there are some minor visual imperfections on both the … Read more
