Foothill Flat Top - Acoustic / Electric Guitar with EQ - Sunburst

Play unplugged or plug it in to amplify your acoustic guitar sound on stage using this Foothill Flat Top Acoustic/Electric Guitar from Monoprice!

This full-sized electric/acoustic guitar features a single-cutaway dreadnought body style. It is constructed with mahogany sides and back, ply spruce top, a set-in nato (aka eastern mahogany) neck, rosewood fretboard, and chrome tuners. It features a built-in piezoelectric pickup with a 4-band equalizer built into the preamplifier, so you can plug in to amplify your sound. It uses coated steel and phosphor bronze wound strings in the following sizes:

String inches mm
E (Coated Steel) 0.012 0.30
B (Coated Steel) 0.016 0.41
G (Phosphor Bronze Wound) 0.024 0.61

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.

Foothill Flat Top - Sunburst

Pros: Very nice neck action. Very playable instrument. Decent electronics - on par with all $300-$350 Ac/Elec competition. The best part of the deal is the gig bag! I have recently bought a few gig bags for Ac/Elec guitars I own, and $25-40 gets you cheap zippers and not much padding. But the Monoprice Gig bag for FREE rocks! Sturdy zipper, big pocket, and stands upright in corner. Total winner.

Cons: The neck has some twists and turns, but is playable. The truss rod needs adjustment a lot - but this was a tough winter for guitars. The finish cracked along seam where neck tail meets upper bout. Looks like finish cracks caused by fresh finish really drying out - minor issue, must look to see them

I must point out that I had to order THREE of this Sunburst Flattop just to get one with a straight neck. This is where Monoprice also shines! They paid all shipping back and forth 3 times until I got a guitar that was playable. And all this for under $150!!!

Great looking guitar!

Pros: Great looking finish, good quality and impressive!

Cons: None

Got this guitar as a Christmas gift for my Dad and he loved it the moment he pulled it out of the case. Plays very well with or without the amplifier. Did not have to tune it or nothing. Was ready to play. His friends were impressed when they saw it. Thanks Monoprice for making such a fine guitar!

Not as good as I thought

Pros: Great looking, paint and finished well, setup OK out of the box

Cons: Some basic issues with freight height and ability to get the action low.

Neck not totally stable ... some need to adjust the truss rod now and then

Guitar is basically really a great buy for a good sounding guitar. If you are fussy like me any little buzz is an issue. Tried numerous adjustment to the neck but low action is not in the cards. The frets on mine were a problem for the high E near the nut. Could not totally flatten the neck or she would buzz. Sheeesh ... so I settled for a slightly bowed neck to avoid the issue, effected the action especially near the bridge end.

So I fell out of lover and sold he on Craigs list ... buyer we overjoyed with a guitar like this for $100

Fortunately I bought her during the black Friday period so I only out a couple of bucks.

Finally ... don't get me wrong .. I own $3,000 guitars, this is still a teriffic sounding and playing the guitar ... can't go wrong for $150 Much better then the branded stuff at the guitar store etc. for twice the price.

good starter guitar

Pros: Electric and acoustic. Sturdy. Good sound. Full size. My son loves it.

Cons: No built-in tuner.

Great starter guitar for my 11 yr old son. He is a little tall for his age but has no problem with this full size guitar. He likes that he can play acoustic or hook it up to his amp. Only thing that would improve it is a built-in tuner.

Foothill Flatop

Pros: Unbelievably big sound and very bright. Electronics are great. Good quality workmanship.

Cons: The action is a bit tough on the fingers.

I got this guitar for $105 and you just can't beat the value. I have 2 Fenders and a Gibson (electrics) so this is just for knocking around without having to plug it into an amp. It serves the purpose just fine. The sound is huge and bright. You can stack this up against more expensive guitars and it will match the sound. I was afraid the guitar would not stay in tune but it barely needs tuning after a few days. Can't believe it even comes with a decent gig bag at this price. Great buy!
