    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
    D (Phosphor Bronze Wound) 0.032 0.81
    A (Phosphor Bronze Wound) 0.042 1.07
    E (Phosphor Bronze Wound) 0.053 1.35

    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.

    A Bit Disappointed in The Flatop Acoustic/Electric So Far

    • Rob from Colorado,
    •  Littleton, CO

    Pros: Very glad to see the "Monoprice" text that appears on the headstock of other Monoprice guitars that I purchased has been replaced by a simple "M" logo on this one..

    For the price point it has a good finish with only minor imperfections.

    The inexpensive equalizer works surprisingly well. Would be nice to have built in tuner but I knew that going in. Not a big deal since I have the clip-on Monoprice tuner that works well.

    The included gig bag seems a bit more padded than the flimsy bags included with the Monoprice electric guitars.

    Shipping was fast and FREE and guitar was packed well.

    Cons: The guitar I received was not setup well - strings buzz, sound dull, and intonation is off a bit. I will swap out strings with a high quality set and adjust the truss rod and hope that makes the instrument playable. Otherwise I am sure that the excellent Monoprice customer service will take care of me as they have consistently done for me on prior orders. That had issues.

    This is my 5th Monoprice guitar but the first acoustic model I have purchased. I am satisfied with all of the solid body electrics I purchased but they all required some tweaking to make them playable. It looks like this acoustics will too. The jury is still out on whether I will keep this one.

    First the good stuff: shipping was fast and FREE! The guitar was double boxed and also stuffed inside the included gig bag. Packing was adequate and the guitar arrived safe and sound. The finish is nice with only some imperfections, understandable for a mass-produced Chinese product at this price point. I have this guitar plugged into a Fender Acoustasonic amp. The equalizer has a fairly wide frequency response and works surprisingly well for such an inexpensive device (Iit can be ordered as a standalone kit on the Internet - not from Monoprice - for under $10).

    Now the not so good stuff: I find it hard to believe that this guitar underwent a setup by a professional luthier. The strings buzz annoyingly and intonation seems a bit off. The included strings also sound dull - either unplugged or plugged in. There is little harmonics to be found up the fret board. I will attempt to swap out the strings with a high quality brand name set and will adjust the truss rod to see if that eliminates the buzzing and helps with the intonation. If that doesn't work, at this price point I do not think it would be cost effective to pay a local pro guitar tech try to make it playable and I may instead return it. Based on other great reviews it looks like my experience is the exception. I know this will work out for me one way or another. I still will recommend Monoprice products including their guitars to anyone who will listen to me.

    Foothill Flat Top - Sunburst

    • dixter,

    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

    • Todd,

    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.
