It has been years since I played a guitar, and I wanted an acoustic-electric. The price was right, and I took a "representative sample" in the store or a test drive. I liked who it felt. The action was good and the tone was nice. I ordered it. It came well within the time frame estimated. It was well packaged, and it arrived with no damage to either the packaging, or the guitar. Kudos, UPS! I was disappointed to see that there was no documentation as to how to use the electric box. I stumbled through using the tuner, and I'm not really sure I have it right. What I have sounds good, and the tuner says it's right on.

It's up to the quality of the strings as to whether the instrument stays in tune, as well as weather conditions.I don't expect this guitar to stay in tune until the strings get used to being tightened.

All in all, this guitar looks good, feels good, sounds good and is light. Throw in some docs about using the box, and this will be a five star piece of equipment. I'm in practice mode right now, relearning and rebuilding calluses. It'll probably be this time next year before I do anything serious with it.

The guitar came at a low price and did not have visual defects, the strings were easily tunable,
The visual appearance was a bit "cheap" with black back and no nice wood texture on front. I was lured by a sale ad on the web site.

I was initially surprised that the strings touched many frets. Further inspection showed that the tension nut was over-tightened and the fretboard was bent back. Un-tightening it with the included wrench fixed the problem.

I expected acoustic-electric guitar to have nylon strings and acoustic-style (wide) fretboard; this one had cheap wire wound steel strings and electric-guitar style (narrow) flat fretboard. So while it might be OK to play rhythm section, it is uneasy to play acoustic pieces on that. I would immediately replace the strings with some flat-wound ones as they do too much finger noise.

The pick-up and preamplifier are generally OK, with standard high/mid/low tone controls, volume and phase switch. Unfortunately, there is no preamp power switch, so the user should take out battery when not in use. With steel strings they make bright tone, and maybe too bright ("metallic") bass. However, with more time, I discovered that the shielding is not perfect, and there is some audible hum which appears when your hand is on the bridge or close to the preamplifier location. Apparently, shielding needs to be improved. The tuner has a small LCD which clearly shows the note offset with +/-50 cents span, so it was easy to tune.

On my guitar, there was a adhesive nylon cable tie inside to keep wires organized - and it was loose letting the loose wires to knock on the deck when playing.

All these minor flaws could be easily fixed but would require disassembling; so I decided to return the guitar and got a different better one.

Overall - it is a cheap basic guitar which, with some homework, may be made a good starter guitar for a practicing player, especially later going to electric guitar. Not good for classic guitar music lesson

          Good starter electric/acoustic, there are plenty out there that are much better made and sound better but not for the price.

          One glaring issue is that the onboard tuner only tunes to naturals, no flats or sharps, and it occasionally freezes requiring a battery pull. I recommend using your own tuner over the onboard one.

          Overall it's alright but if you have more to spend I would advise skipping out on this one

                          i've been playing guitar for 13 years. i bought this guitar as a 'beater' guitar because i busk on the streets a lot. so if i were to scratch it, dent it, drop it i wouldn't trip out about it. out of the box the guitar is pretty solid. the neck is thin and comfortable to play. the action level between the strings and the fret board are pretty good. i would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn or who has never strummed a chord before. i do not recommend this to intermediate or advanced players who have an ear for sound quality. it's made from white wood laminate which means unlike real wood, the sound won't mature as the guitar gets older. i must say this since someone in another review said their tuner eq wasn't working, you have to take the battery out and remove the plastic wrap it's wrapped in, and then put it back in. the electronics work perfectly fine. tunes pretty dead on as well. anywayz for what this guitar is worth it's not bad. but if you're an experienced guitar player. pass on this one.

                              I purchased this online for my son's first guitar. The first one I received had gaps between the fingerboard and the outside casing of the neck and the frets stuck out significantly on both sides of the fingerboard. I returned it to the nearest store and they ordered a new one. When this one arrived not only did it have the same issues it also had cracks in the fingerboard. This guitar is horribly constructed! I wasted a ton of time dealing with this and my son did not get to use his Christmas present until March!

                                  I am only a novice guitar player, but I love playing this guitar. It is easy to play because of its low action. However, mine had black paint on the finish when it was delivered to me. But other than that I dont have any complaints about this guitar! Great guitar!!

                                    I really like the guitar. The issue that I have is that it does not stay on tune. A minor issue is that the battery that it came with is already discharged, or maybe the tuner is not working but I am not certain yet because I do not have a battery yet.

                                      when i first got my guitar it went sold and it felt like i was a country singer, there were no bad things about this guitar because it had the right tune for my concert and my school plays .

                                      Comments about Rogue RA-090 Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                                      The guitar came at a low price and did not have visual defects, the strings were easily tunable,
                                      The visual appearance was a bit "cheap" with black back and no nice wood texture on front. I was lured by a sale ad on the web site.

                                      I was initially surprised that the strings touched many frets. Further inspection showed that the tension nut was over-tightened and the fretboard was bent back. Un-tightening it with the included wrench fixed the problem.

                                      I expected acoustic-electric guitar to have nylon strings and acoustic-style (wide) fretboard; this one had cheap wire wound steel strings and electric-guitar style (narrow) flat fretboard. So while it might be OK to play rhythm section, it is uneasy to play acoustic pieces on that. I would immediately replace the strings with some flat-wound ones as they do too much finger noise.

                                      The pick-up and preamplifier are generally OK, with standard high/mid/low tone controls, volume and phase switch. Unfortunately, there is no preamp power switch, so the user should take out battery when not in use. With steel strings they make bright tone, and maybe too bright ("metallic") bass. However, with more time, I discovered that the shielding is not perfect, and there is some audible hum which appears when your hand is on the bridge or close to the preamplifier location. Apparently, shielding needs to be improved. The tuner has a small LCD which clearly shows the note offset with +/-50 cents span, so it was easy to tune.

                                      On my guitar, there was a adhesive nylon cable tie inside to keep wires organized - and it was loose letting the loose wires to knock on the deck when playing.

                                      All these minor flaws could be easily fixed but would require disassembling; so I decided to return the guitar and got a different better one.

                                      Overall - it is a cheap basic guitar which, with some homework, may be made a good starter guitar for a practicing player, especially later going to electric guitar. Not good for classic guitar music lesson
