How did you hear about this brand?
Internet reviews and Ebay.
How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you’ve tried in stores?
Very favorably. It sounds better than any other guitar I have owned that cost less than $1,000. I was particularly impressed with the level of fit and finish for a sub $200 guitar. It looks as good as anything I have seen, played, or handled by ANY manufacturer costing less than $1,000.
What’s your favorite part about this guitar?
Without a doubt the tonal quality of the instrument. It gives off a crisp clean tone with well rounded range. It is also the easiest guitar I have played in a long time. The action is fantastic and I find that I can play it longer and faster than my other guitars.
If you didn’t know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$900.00 or more.
How would you rate customer support?
Very good. Dennis Jr. was very responsive to e-mails and questions. I usually got a reply within an hour or two. He was also helpful in answering questions about the set up of the instrument and accessories available with the guitar.
Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. I bought this guitar based on the many favorable reviews I read on the internet, hoping that if it were 75% of what people were stating, it would be a bargain. I am happy to say that it has been everything I had expected and have yet to find a real gripe with this guitar. My only criticism, as small as it may be, is that the hygrometer (that comes included with the purchase of the Zager hard case)is not permanatly mounted in the case. It arrived laying loose in the accessory compartment of the case. I would have liked to have seen it embedded into the lining of the case.
My 12 year old son loves playing this guitar so much that I may actually have to consider buying another one and giving him this one. Perhaps a ZAD 20 or ZAD 80 is in the future.
