I've had this guitar for a little over three years now. It took all my money when I bought it, but it was well worth it. This guitar has great volume and tone, especially when I replaced the strings with some phosphor-bronze Martins. This is a great guitar for anyone, unless you need an acoustic-electric.

I ordered this guitar from On-Line. It shipped and arrived in 3 days. The package was great. The guitar was boxed in two boxes protected very well. This guitar looks great and has a good price for a beginner guitar. I wanted it to have an acoustic around just to play to have fun. Here is the downer....the guitar arrived with the neck twisted beyond repair. I knew something wasn't right when I first played it, but just thought that it need a good pro set done on it. I took it to my tech to put new strings on and do the set up. He told me that the neck was twisted and to just return it. So I took it back to my local Guitar Center. Those guy's were great. They took it back no problems. Well I ended up going with the Fender DG-60 instead. For the few extra dollars for that guitar is a much better option. The DG-60 sounds great, plays great, and looks even better. The $60 extra for the Fender is worth it. The machine heads are better too. So I suggest to go with the Fender DG-60 you'll be happy like I am now.

        Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

        I acquired this guitar from my sister who wanted to learn but gave up, and by acquired i mean once she moved out i took it. Ive been playing for 5 years actively. This epiphone is much louder and has a much deeper sound than my fender that cost $120 more. it sat in a basement for 5 years and collected dust, but i put some strings on it and tuned it up and it plays great. i use it primarily in my acoustic folk project.

        Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

        Received this guutar for a Christms gift and was very impressed.Right out of the box the action was great with the medium low action that I prefer and the tone is most impressive.The tuners work smoothly and it stays in tune quite well.The fit and finish were very good and the only negative I can think of is the oil on the fingerboard turns your fingers black after the first few sessons.I have played for over 30 years and this guitar is much better than the price suggests even superior in tone to some Martins and Gibsons I have tried.I higly recommend this guutar for both beginners and veterns alike.

        I have been using this guitar for about a year and it sounds awesome. Excellent sound quality and a nice finish on the body.

        Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

        I pretty much bang out chords, nothing too fancy.

        I thought the guitar itself is attractive. The action on mine was very low, making it easier to finger frets. This is one of those guitars you take on camping trips because you don't need to worry about harming it.

        Mine had a high fret, so I took it back for a replacement. Having owned a DR100 and a PR150, it seems that high frets are an issue with Epiphone guitars. Also, the tuning machines are very sloppy, which makes tuning a real pain.

        Not Bad but,,,,

        Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

        My wife bought me this for my birthday back in July. It's in the Vintage Sunburst finish which is quite stunning. I was surprised to see that the stock tuners on it are now die cast , which the older models weren't . The action was pretty high which I was able to lower with the included truss rod wrench. The neck on this is perfect ,with no protruding fret ends which goes to show that Epiphone's plant in China has really improved the quality of their work. I did however, clean the fretboard with some Lemon Oil to remove that dye which seems to end up on your fingertips with these lower end models. I then removed the stock strings and chan ged them for a set of Elixir Acoustic 11-52 which made a huge difference in the tone and sound of the guitar. For a guitar in this price range , it has one heck of a great sound to it. The stock tuners on it though, did have loose screws which I did tighten and that is something , Epiphone's QC needs to keep a eye out for when they're inspecting these. I've had this for over a month now and I do plan on swapping out the stock tuners for a set of Vintage style Klusons which would not only look better but also keep it in tune as well. This is why I'm giving this only 4 stars. Other than that, this is definitely worth the price and highly recommended for beginners or the musician on a budget.

        Comments about Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar:

        My wife went and bought me one of these a couple of weeks ago for my 56th birthday. I now play only Acoustic after 35 plus years of doing the band thing and have been amassing a collection ranging from Fenders to Mitchell and ever since I got this one, I can not put it down. This is just one fun guitar to play once you do a good set up and put a great set of Elixirs on it. It stays in tune with no issues at all and has a great tone to it which IMO, sounds much more than a guitar which is in this price range. I wasn't aware of the quality of Epiphone Acoustics and I have to say that I am very impressed and I have been playing for 43 years and do not impress easily. The sunburst finish is beautiful and there are no fret edges protruding which, is very important to me as well. Contrary to what some may say, I could see myself using this for a solo gig . After all, the magic comes from the hands and not the name on the headstock.

        First guitar,sounds great.Action is pretty high making it a little hard to play.But you get a real good acoustic sound out of it.This is a perfect guitar for beginners.Mine doesn't stay in tune for very long,so it requires constant tuning.All in all,I would say it's a pretty decent guitar.

        bought this guitar about 2 months ago , and have been very happy . beautiful sound stays in tune and easy to play. i bought the ebony finish which is beautiful . I've played more expensive guitars and this ranks up there with them, i couldnt have chosen a better guitar anywhere and the price was fantastic . i would recommend this to all of my friends. it was shipped in double boxing and arrived in perfect condition.
