Before it gets shipped to you, each Monoprice guitar undergoes a setup, tuning, and inspection process by Master Luthier Roger Gresco here in Southern California. The setup ensures that the neck is straight, the action is right, and that it will stay in tune. To protect your investment, it comes with a 10mm padded, zippered, gig bag with shoulder strap and a truss-rod wrench.

Pros: Beautiful looking and sounding guitar. Basic structure is excellent. The best acoustic guitar available for the price. Setup is better than any other cheap guitar.

Cons: Gig bag makes crinkly paper sound when moved. Needs good setup to be at its best.

This guitar plays well right out of the box. Although it went on sale at 20% off before I received the guitar, Monoprice wouldn't price match. The finish is very good. Any imperfections (VERY minor) were easily fixed with a fingernail, making the finish flawless. When changing the strings, I realized that the nut was not glued in and the saddle was loose in the bridge and leaning towards the headstock, with a badly fitting shim underneath. Two drops of superglue on the nut, which keeps the nut easily removable, a Tusq saddle, Graphtech part PQ-9276-C0 for less that $10 and a set of D'Addario EJ16 strings made a good sounding guitar sound amazing. I added a strap button on the bottom side of the heel of the neck. There are plenty of instructions on setup and fitting the saddle online. I recommend doing it yourself using a few simple tools that you can get from Monoprice or on EBay, because you will become more familiar with your guitar that way. Once you do this, stop looking and start practicing, because you won't come close to the sound of this guitar with anything near its price. Order the strap with the guitar, Monoprice 611300 or check the Monoprice site for a different color, the tuner 611210, the capo 611050 and picks 611000. All quality things that you will need that you won't find anywhere else for the price.

Good value, but there is always the possibility of adjustment needed

Pros: It's an excellent guitar for the price.

Cons: The strings that come on it are cheap, will corrode and will smell funny after a short while. Be sure to invest in some good quality coated strings (which aren't very expensive if you shop around.) Personally, I like D'Addario but there are so many good ones out there. After a while, I find that the neck/fret is buzzing on the high e string several frets down. The neck must have settled in a bit (humidity or lack of humidity as compared to where it was setup) so I'm a little disappointed that I'll either need to figure out how to adjust it or take it into a guitar shop and have them adjust it. No biggie, this could happen with any guitar. Wood is always affected by the environment changes, especially humidity or dryness.

Overall, I would highly recommend this guitar for the price, but if you are going to save money on this guitar over a much more expensive model, please at LEAST consider having it professionally adjusted if it needs it. Besides the buzz on one string at two or three frets that has developed after many months of usage, this is a great guitar and that buzz can be fixed by either raising the bridge on that side a tiny bit or several other ways.

Excellent value, nice sound

Pros: Great price
Very nice tone
Straight neck

Cons: Strings are ok but d'Addario EJ16s are richer
Minor fret buzz on 1 of 2 guitars we bought.

I was considering more expensive guitars but am very happy I decided to buy this instead. At this price, I bought another for the rest of the family to use. The tone is very nice, on the bright side. Switching to better strings brought out a richer tone. The action is just right, neither too high nor too low. The neck was straight and no adjustment was needed.
One of the 2 guitars had minor fret buzz which I fixed myself by using a fret sanding kit. I didn't think this was serious enough to warrant returning the guitar.

Woodstock dreadnaught acoustic guitar

Pros: Excellent tone, super nice set up, better than expected quality for price paid.

Cons: Rough strings, too large for small children, doesn't have a second strap pin. Tuners feel like they are skipping a gear.

I played several acoustics in the local music stores in the $125.00 to $350.00 range and none of them came close to the tone produced by this guitar. The action is a little higher than I like, but tolerable. Intonation is spot on. I read others reporting extra glue in spots needing clean up, but I didn't have that problem. Beautiful finish.

The strings sound decent but are very rough on my fingers, they will have to be changed. OK so there is only one strap pin, eventually will need to add one, but I knew that going in. The tuners concern me because of the loosey goosey feeling when tuning, but then she seems to hold tune reasonably well for now. I am in the habit of tuning up before every session anyhow.

Although this would be a very good choice for a beginner, it has a very large body, so if somebody is thinking about buying it for a small child, be aware of that.

If this had a second strap pin, better strings and tuners, this would easily be rated 10 stars. Still it is well worth the $112 monoprice is asking for it. If mine got lost or damaged, I would buy this again.
