"Foothill Flat Top" Acoustic / Electric Guitar with EQ - Black
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:
E (Coated Steel)
B (Coated Steel)
G (Phosphor Bronze Wound)
D (Phosphor Bronze Wound)
A (Phosphor Bronze Wound)
E (Phosphor Bronze Wound)
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: Really good sound. Solid build with spruce stiffeners. Nice durable, good-looking finish. Very straight neck & nice fretboard makes for a smooth and hammerable action. Tunes easy and stays pretty good. Pickup/Volume/Equalizer all work well. Hangs properly from a strap.
A very good musical instrument.
Cons: Not autographed by Tony Rice or Mark Knopfler.
Well packed. Arrived almost in tune!
Like others have said, this is a very nice guitar for $400. It's a super guitar for $140 with a bag.
A fine choice for a beginner to the flatpicker to the singer songwriter, or send as a gift.
10/10 for the $$!

Flat top guitar
Pros: Nice neck, nice action, nice sound, nice looking. Great price for what you get.
This guitar surprised me with the it's quality, tone and ease of fingering. This would be a $400.00 guitar in a music store. It plays very well , has a great tone and is loud. This is would be a great beginner guitar as well as an intermediate instrument. School music departments should jump on this instrument for their classes.

sound is everything
Pros: finish is outstanding, tone very controlable, comfotable to play, smooth fret edges
Cons: bad sticky strings, but again strings are personal and everyone is different. needs spare bridge piece for adjustment.
This is loud, make no mistake. The tone is very adjustable, to about any thing you would play. hate the strings tried them for a couple of days then they were history. New cleartone accoustic strings and what a difference. The strings and a spare bridge keeps this from being a 10.
