How did you hear about this brand?
I researched and played several guitars over a period of a few weeks. It was during this process that I came across the Zegar guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I purchased the 900CE. I have owned several guitars since I was a young boy. I am now 51 years old. I have owned several brands of acoustics (including a non-electric Fender and an electric Esteban). I have played Martins in the last few weeks at music stores in the Houston area. Both brands played very well. The Zegar 900CE is no doubt the best playing and sounding of ANY I have played.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's difficult to zero in on one part. Let me say that from the exquisite details of the Venetian Cutaway, the Sitka Spruce Top, the Indian Rosewood back and sides, Hand Bent Figured Maple Binding, African Mahogany with Inlay, the Hand Scalloped bracework, the Full Abalone Inlay, Pearl Fret Marker, Figured Maple Inlay (back), High Gloss Finish, Truss Rod, 2011 Fishman AURA Electronics, Built In Equalizer, Genuine Grover Tuning, Zager Hand Carved Nut, Zager Custom Lights Strings (by Martin), Zager Soft Touch (hand filed) Frets, and the Lifetime Warranty. I said all that to say....EVERYTHING. By the way, I have not fully taken in everything yet!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Based on my research and seeing the prices of guitars I played in music stores in Houston, I would have to estimate this guitar to be $5000 plus.

How would you rate customer support?
I am Operations Manager for a company here in Houston. I have to deal with people all day long for all kinds of reasons. BAR NONE...Dennis and Jill have gone far beyond the NORM in helping me with everything. There is a reason they are rated #1 in customer support. My emails were and continue to be responded to in a prompt and professional manner. The ethics and principles they use ought to be taught to every company and individual that ever has to work with another company or individual....OUTSTANDING!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
If you have read what I wrote above....DO I REALLY HAVE TO TYPE ANYTHING HERE? :)

Additional comments:
One thing...my fingers were sore most of the time when I played my Fender. Maybe I had the wrong strings or something. All I know is the quality, the ease of pressing the strings, and the sound that comes from playing the Zegar 900CE can't be really be described. It is something you have to personally experience to understand! AND NO, THEY DIDN'T PAY ME OR AS ME TO TYPE ANY OF THIS.

Zager EZ-Play ZAD50 OM Size Acoustic


Anonymous
McKinney, Texas
Model: zad50om

How did you hear about this brand?
Various discussion boards on-line

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is a beautifully appointed solid mahogany guitar that compares very favorably with all of my other guitars, all of which are Martins (D-19, D-41, OM-41sp). It is loud and crisp yet balanced. It would not be fair to compare it directly to the other OM I own because that is a much higher end instrument, and also a rosewood guitar. But the 20 OM by Zager is a superb instrument in sound, and very easy to play. I did change out the strings it came with to regular lights (Martin Lifespan) and, for me, that made a huge difference. Great guitar!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The playability. Once I put on my favorite set of strings and tweaked the truss rod a bit it became exceptionally easy to play. And it is beautiful to look at; stained mahogany and natural spruce top are a very nice combination; the abalone rosette is really nice.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
If I was handed this guitar without knowing it was a Zager I think I would have probably assumed it was a Larrivee or comparable and would have expected to pay between $850 and $1,000.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support -- only the very best I have ever experienced. Astonishing, really! Immediate response to email, quick to help out. Dennis handles things personally and I have never been so well looked after.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. For the nay-sayers and those who immediately think Zager guitars are second rate I suggest you take another look. You would have NOTHING to lose. I will tell you honestly that I was completely prepared to take advantage of their offer -- no strings attached money back and they pay shipping BOTH WAYS if you don't like the guitar. Suffice to say I am keeping mine.

Additional comments:
The guitar I bought is to be the first nice acoustic guitar for my 15 year-old son, who mainly plays electric. He is a fine player, and I needed to find something that had a slimmer neck (I prefer the V-neck on my OM-41, but my son is used to a Strat and Les Paul) -- and it needs to sound great because he's played my Martins and he has a great ear. What I got for my $200 is AMAZING.



zad50cespecial
Zager EZ-Play ZAD50CE Acoustic Electric Special Edition


Sharon
Elizabeth, New Jersey
Model: zad50cespecial

How did you hear about this brand?
I was actually looking up Martin guitars on my computer and I had looked at them before and compared some models and pretty much had decided on one particular model. I am a new guitar player, still very much learning. Taking lessons for the first time as a middle-aged person. I had always wanted to learn and never did, so I finally purchased a relatively inexpensive guitar and began lessons. Callouses and all, I wanted to continue and wanted my next guitar. An ad came up for Zager EZ play guitars and I at first dismissed it, but then it intrigued me. I went to the site and read all about them and read all the reviews I could find and concluded, "I've found my next guitar". I was wanting to stay in a particular price range so that's why I ordered the 20CE model. I placed my order the next day.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is sooo much easier on my fingers. I've already developed callouses from other guitar, but even still it hurt if I practiced longer than 35 min. I wish I had had this guitar from the start. The tone and sound of this guitar is beautiful. My other guitar sounded "tinny". This one is rich. Not to mention how beautiful this guitar is! Solid wood-gorgeous, abalone inlay, choice of woods, and the high gloss finish, which I personally like. I love the built-in tuner. My other guitar didn't have that so I had to buy a separate tuner. All told, a beautiful guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The ease of play. The action is good and easy on the fingers.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I have not looked at the price of many guitars. Mainly just some of the Martins and this one was less expensive than the Martin I had kind of decided on, so I know, for one similar to this, I would have to estimate this guitar would be twice the price it is. I was telling my guitar teacher, who is 19 yrs. old, and just bought a new Martin, and his mother about Zager guitars and their company and their service and she said,"Wow. What did THAT cost you? She had just recently purchased that Martin guitar for her other son and she couldnt believe it when I told her.

How would you rate customer support?
Let's just say I don't know any other company ANYWHERE that can even come close to competing with this company in customer service. I mean that sincerely. I deal with a lot of companies and have never been treated so much like I matter. First of all, when I was considering ordering my guitar, I emailed with questions and help to choose which one for me and, I got answers back almost immediately. I'm talking minutes, not hours or days. They emailed me after I ordered thanking me for my order and the next day it went out. Without going into detail, let's just say that when I received it I, due to my naivety and lack of experience did something that was my fault and was really upset at myself. I emailed Dennis to tell him what I had done and he told me how to resolve it and the next day I took care of it and all was well. That night Dennis emailed me and said for me to send the guitar back because they weren't sure why this happened. I said no and he insisted. It actually did make me feel better. The next day they had already sent the new one even though I hadn't gotten the first one to UPS yet. Who does that? I received the new one in 4 days and am so very happy! What a company!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, I have already and will continue to do so. I would say to all beginners to get one of these guitars before you get anything else. I know practice would be so much easier and you will be more likely to keep it up.

Additional comments:
Nothing more to add really. I think I've about said it all. I guess one more thing: I am even more impressed by the fact that someone like Denny Zager, with celebrity status, would show this level of care and concern for people and their love of playing guitar enough to make such a beautiful instrument at a price where most people can afford and not do it just for money is a testament to his character and sets him apart! Thank you!

Zager EZ-Play ZAD20E Acoustic Electric Black Lacquer


Steve Bracegirdle <sbracegirdle@sympatico.ca>
Houston, Texas
Model: zad20eblack

How did you hear about this brand?
I saw it on Ebay first , then read some reviews about it. The fact that the guitar could be played without getting sore fingers made me take a chance

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have had Mitchell, several Ovations, several Ibanez acoustic elecrics, and an Ibanez Semi electric. Only the Ibanez semi Electric comes anywhere near the playability of this guitar. The action is excellent and it is by far the easiest Acoustic, or acoustic electric guitar I have played

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The playability. the action is excellent, and the more you play it the better it sounds

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I have no idea I just know that it is by far and away a great improvement on any other acoustic electric that I have played. But I am far from an expert to judge prices

How would you rate customer support?
Outstanding customer support. It couldn't be delivered in the soft case that I paid for , so I was compensated with a hard case at a later date. On top of this I was kept abreast of all that was going on. They even supplied another set of strings, a tee shirt a certificate of authenticity and Denny Zager signed the guitar himself. I can't say enough good things about this company.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
This is an excellent guitar for a novice/ less experienced player like myself because you can spend so much more time each time you pick up the guitar to practice, and the more it is played the better it sounds. I would recommend this guitar much higher than any other guitar I have played.

Additional comments:
This is only the second new guitar that I have bought. At first I thought it sounded just ok , but after having played it for a day and retuning it 3 or 4 times it improved. After days and weeks of play it neede to be tuned less, and the sound really started to come out of this guitar. I truly was impressed, the more I played the better it sounded, probably due to practice and confidence as well as a great guitar, but that is what this guitar gives you!

This is the 3rd guitar we have purchased from Zager.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I don't play guitar, but my boys do. I have had the guitar playing in my home for 10 years, I have purchase 3 Zager guitars and nothing sounds like the Zager! Not only is it a beautiful instrument but it also has an incredible sound. The best part is seeing the smile on my boys faces when they open their new guitars. My oldest boy serves in the Marine Corps and I shipped one to him last Christmas when he was stationed in Africa, nothing says "I love you" like receiving a Zager guitar when you are far from home! He loves his zad20ceom, as it is much easier to transport through airports as he travels alot in the Corps. My younger son received the zad20sunburst for Christmas and not a day has gone by that I haven't heard him playing his guitar. I love having these guitars in my home!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Everything!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?

Received as a gift, and immediately began researching online. (Greatest gift I have ever been given, hands down!)

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
You can't even compare this to any other guitar in its price range in any store. It wouldn't even be a fair argument for any other brand. This guitar is light years ahead of anything you'll find at a store. Easily could retail for 1,000 to 1,200 at a guitar shop and still be a good value. After comparing it to a few Martins owned by a friend who collects, I think it's safe to say that he was blown away as well, and see a Zager coming his way in the near future.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It wouldn't do this guitar justice to narrow my favorite aspect down to just one. It's beautifully crafted, sounds incredible, and just feels so natural in your hands.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Minimum 1,000 bucks

How would you rate customer support?
It's refreshing not to be transferred off-shore or to run through some pain staking automated process. A++

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes!! Everyone wants the most for their dollar. Not only are Zager guitars reasonably priced they are hands down better in every category compared to other makers that are even 3 times the price. I'm not one to usually take the time to write costumer reviews of any kind, but this guitar truly blew me away.

Additional comments:
If you play, all I can say is do yourself a favor and pick up of of these beautiful guitars that fits you best. You will not be disappointed. & if for some crazy reason you are, well they'll take it back, no questions asked.

How did you hear about this brand?
heard about ZAGER GUITARS through my own research on the internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
my ZAGER zad20 is a very playable and full bodied sounding instrument. from the first strum i was captured by the overall balance of both the highs and lows of the tonal spectrum. i also own two vintage ALVAREZ acoustics that also sound great but they both have the same sound favoring the low end tones and neither one of them have as low of action making them more tiring to play for extended periods. my new ZAGER zad20 has the most comfortable neck i have ever encountered on an acoustic..not too thin but just right for wraping my hand around. im able to effortlessly make chords ring out with no buzz and more importantly no hand cramping. a very natural feeling guitar to play!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
the most favorite part of my zad20 has to be the effortless playability of the neck. it just feels like it makes your hand happy and in turn sounds so good you just wanna keep impressing yourself and play more. chords have never been so easy to make sound so full of rich tones..i love it!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
knowing what ive paid for my other acoustic guitars i would expect the zad20 to cost at least twice the asking price. with the "no risk" deal DENNY has offered its just silly not to order one, play it, love it, and see for yourself its the best deal going for all of us players.

How would you rate customer support?
i have never been subject to such a great company. i was expecting a reply to my email to DENNIS to be a day or two wait at least. wrong! ten minutes and all my questions were answered by a very professional DENNIS ZAGER himself..not an employee who gets paid to sound like they care. thanks to DENNIS for that because to me that really matters and in my opinion shows how much ZAGER GUITARS as a company cares about their customers.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
i would recommend ZAGER GUITARS to anyone from beginner to actual gigging guitarists. ZAGER has a full line of guitars from modest to full on contender for the title.

Additional comments:
i will continue to play my new ZAGER with pride and cant wait till i can afford to order ZAGER's top of the line work of art. thanks again to DENNY, DENNIS, and all of the ZAGER company employees who make these guitars available to working class folk such as myself who can now afford top quality instruments!

Reviews on the Internet

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is the first steel string guitar I have owned. I always wanted one but was put off by the difficulty in getting used to the hard steel strings and the finger pain involved. I was impressed by testimonials stating that the action of Zager guitars was very light and That they were much easier to play. I found this to be no exaggeration; I could play my ZAD80 right away with very little finger pain. My ZAD80 is beautiful, beautifully made and beautiful sounding. I can't stop telling my wife and friends how much I love it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I love the tone of my ZAD80, but I must admit that what I love the most is its overall appearance. The fine construction, attention to detail and wonderful finish that Zager has lavished on this guitar are the equal of guitars I tested that were three times as expensive.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would easily have thought this was a three or four thousand dollar guitar.

How would you rate customer support?
Dennis Zager has been a big help in my decision to buy this guitar. All my emails are answered quickly and accurately and he hjas tried to accomodate all requests. You find out very quickly that these people really care about their customers.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
This is a no-brainer. Anyone, amateur or professional would be very happy with my ZAD80.

Additional comments:
In my experience, it's very rare in this day and age to find a company that not only produces a superior product, but has such outstanding customer service - they know how to keep a customer happy and coming back.

Zager Guitar is doing what no one else is.....selling top quality guitars online that have actually been set up by someone who knows what they are doing!

How did you hear about this brand?
I knew about this company for years but never really researched the guitars. I checked the feedback on the website and realized how pleased the people are with this product. After ordering the guitar, I was told to use it for 90 days and that they would take it back for any reason and pay return shipping, if I wasn't satisfied. I loved the guitar and sound but wasn't comfortable with the feel and emailed Dennis. He sent me a call tag, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, and I sent that one back and he sent me out another one, even before he received the old one back. The new guitar is excellent and is very comfortable for me to play. Once I start playing it I can't put it down. I have been playing guitars for over 20 years and never had a guitar that feels/sounds and plays so nice. I can't believe the customer service. They are amazing and really care about their customers.They will stand behind their product, UNCONDITIONALLY, with no questions asked. It is very important that you are completely satisfied. I would like to thank all of the people involved with this company for their honesty and caring. I highly recommend these guitars, as well and the company. They are UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!!!

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
No comparison. These guitars are very well made, very well priced, and should cost twice the selling price. They are a high end guitar, without the high price. I only have good things to say about the guitar. I just love it and would highly recommend this guitar and company with a AAA+++ rating.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Comfortable to play with an amazing sound. It's really a quality instrument.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Guitars of equal construction, sound and playability, would cost twice what I paid.

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent, understanding and 100% customer oriented. This is an amazing company.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Definitely, no question. This is a high end guitar.

Don't be afraid to order this guitar. The company will stand behind the guitar NO QUESTIONS ASKED. You really don't have anything to loose and everything to gain. You'll receive a beautiful guitar that plays and sounds great, with a 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Try one, you won't be sorry.

Additional comments:
I have developed arthritis in both thumbs and tried to use light gauge strings on both the Martin and the Alhambra. Both suffered miserably in tone quality and the nylon strung Alhambra was difficult to finger pick the strings because of the looseness of the strings

I would strongly recommend Zager to anyone. Their guitars are well made, sound great, easy to play, have fantastic customer support and cost far less than any comparable instrument. My next guitar will be another Zager!!!!!

I first saw your guitars on Ebay. I then looked at your website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My first guitar was a Martin and I sold it on Ebay. It was a good guitar but made my fingers so very sore as a new learner. Then I bought an Ovation, this also was a very nice guitar but again I just could not get past my fingers being so sore. All this time I watched your videos and looked at your guitars on the internet and finally I sold my Ovation on Ebay and purchased the Parlor. It was perfect. This guitar played so great that I got right though the sore fingers. I can play and play and enjoy it so much.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
With the sizing chart on your website plus I asked Denny questions which he helped me so much, I bought the guitar (Parlor) that was the perfect fit for me. It was as if it was made just for me. I had alot of trouble holding the strings down and had the worst time "dudding". But with my Zagger I dont do that anymore!!! It was amazing that I was playing the way I always wanted to. I am just learning and this wonderful guitar is everything that the website said it was. I am truly having fun playing. It is well made and beautiful.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I bought the Mahogany Parlor and I would have thought this guitar would have cost 1,200.00 as I played a Martin Mahogany that cost 1,400.00 at a guitar store and my Zagger is every bit as good as that Martin. I only paid 375.00 and it is worth a whole lot more.

How would you rate customer support?
You could not ask for any better customer support. Over the past year I asked many questions and every time I got a answer within the hour. Also I loved watching the video that Denny done all about the Zager guitar. There is tons of information on the website.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
You bet I highly recommend Zager Guitars. I bought my guitar it was to come with a soft case but I got an email telling me that they were out of the soft cases and instead sent me a hard case with my guitar, you could have knocked me over with a feather that the Zager company would have done that. Years ago companies went out of there way to help there customers but you dont find that much anymore and here THEY did it. WOW!!! This is awesome. I have told everybody I know about how great my guitar is and I truly believe that if you would play it just once you could not put it down.

Additional comments:
It is a wonderfully made guitar, the craftsman ship is fantasic. You can not go wrong purchasing a Zager!!!!

How did you hear about this brand?
I've been in the market for a new acoustic/electric guitar for several years and have looked at countless websites, including eBay. I saw a Zager listed there, and I explored further and ended up on the Zager website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
As much as I love the Guild I've been playing for the last 27 years, there's really no comparison. My new Zager plays easier, it's lighter, and the sounder is crisper and far more resonant. The sustain is far beyond that of the Guild.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
How surprisingly light it is for the amount and quality of sound it produces.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'd guess in the $1500 to $2000 price range.

How would you rate customer support?
The customer service is unsurpassed. Dennis answered every question I asked him, no matter how trivial, within minutes of my emailing him. He directed me to the right place on the Zager website if the answer was to be found there and was very, very patient with my persistent and many emails.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
For all of the reasons I stated above and because we should all make music! This guitar is perfect for beginners because of how easily it plays. It's also perfect for the most seasoned pro, who will be able to get amazingly beautiful tones out of one of these babies!

I was looking for a good guitar for my daughter, I was about to buy her a $1200 - $2000 Martin. Her #1 is a Luna guitar that sounds pretty good. She did confirm that the Zager does play easier and sounds better than her Luna. She said it is her new #1 now. I'm planning to get her a ZAD900CE one day.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I'm happy my daughter likes all aspects of the guitar. She really wanted the Mahogany and the ZAD20 was a good choice.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'm not good at pricing, but I would have thought it could go for at least $900 - $1000.

Yes, and I already have. I think it's a good deal on a good sounding guitar.

I have always played Ovation and judge the others by my 70's model. The face, of course, cracked and had to be reglued but it plays as well or better than the Martin or the Gibson I own. The Zager plays as well as my old Ovation but has a more mellow "woody" sound which I like. The string tension seems less and I don't need to press down so hard on the Zager.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I have the Zager Parlor and I enjoy the 12 fret neck.

Phil Meyers <bikeliker2@gmail.com>

Model: zad80ce

How did you hear about this brand?
Started with online reviews in my early searches for what would be my first guitar

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Being a "newbie", I'd not had much experience with many different styles of guitars so my opinion was not tainted by nostalgia, allegiance, or habit. I simply took the guitar out of the case and played it to see if it was as vibrant and reactive as the reviews said. I had fully planned on returning it if in any way deviant from the reviews. Well, to the contrary, it was magnificent. The sound is so rich in both the high and the low tones. The middle ranges stand their ground as well! Now, I stop in guitar stores just to see if any guitars at similar price points come close. They don't and it makes me smile!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The undeniable ease of play is my favorite "feature" of the zad80ce. It is, without question, easier to play than any other guitar I've yet sampled. The little things that Denny's Easy Play technique change result in having a much more enjoyable time playing. Especially for beginners but for anyone frankly. I mean why not play a better sounding instrument that is ALSO easier to play. Just makes sense...

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Seems to play like some of the $3500.00 guitars out there (and up...). I don't know who would buy those though if only they'd try a Zager zad80ce first!

How would you rate customer support?
Quick responses to my questions and a complete 100% money back guarantee. Can't really ask much more than that from any company.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely!!!!!! I would only ask that a person try the Zager zad80ce before trying another guitar. It will sell itself if they'll only try it!

Additional comments:
I love this guitar. I've got a long way to go till I can play to its potential but it's nice to know I won't "outgrow" it any time soon. A real beautiful instrument from a great company!

Ease of play is second to none including Takamine, Ovation, Adamas, and Martin. The craftsmanship compared to any of the Martins I've played and exceeds most that cost three times what Zager sells for. The tonal quality is superb with clear and resounding lows, and the mids and highs are crisp and clear. The sustain is remarkable!

I was on Ebay looking for a Martin guitar when I found an item detailing the Zager Company, There was a website and I went in to see what the guitar was about.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
First, I have never played professionally, only for myself, However I have had a Kaye electric, Wurlitzer base, Sigma Six-String and a Sigma 12-String accoustic currewntly. Due to an injury four years ago to my wrist, I hven't played the 12-string and am planning to sell the guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I'm sure I will find other things that impress me, but the quality of the wokmanship and the sound emitted from the instrument.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Hard for me to say, but I would say just from appearnace it is equal to or superior to Martin guitars that I am very familiar with. These guitars begin at around $1,200.00 and go up from there.

How would you rate customer support?
Everything was done quickly and efficiently throughout the processing of my order thru the delivery be UPS. Even after delivery, I emailed to say the guitat had arrived and was answered almost immeditely, thaankning me for the email.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Having not played the guitar. I woul;d have to wait and see to be sure. I do know the beauty of the guitar and after jusr trying a few chords; I will have to learn to place my fingers a little differently, but wih much less pressure then others played before.

Additional comments:
Hoping to have success with the guitar in the very near future. The photo is of my wife and I in Galway, Ireland. She passed away this last April and I think returning to the guitar will aid in my grieving her loss.

I purchased a ZAD-20ce in 2005. I did a good deal of research before I purchased that guitar. I have been completely satisfied with the 20. I purchased 900 because I had enjoyed the 20 so much.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
In most instances the sound of the Zagers is superior. The playability is far superior.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The set-up and the action on both of my Zagers are my favorites. They are better than on any other guitars I have tried. Denny has spoiled me with his work and care.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
ZAD-50ce est. $1500 to $1800. ZAD-90ce est. $4500 to $5500.

Customer service and support has been 12 on a scale of 10. Dennis and Denny have been extremely responsive. As noted above the work done by Denny on the guitars is superb. On customer contact, Dennis is always available and responsive. Dennis responds to any and all inquiries on a very timely basis. All of my questions have been answered in under an hour. The Zagers are always happy to help and to insure customer satisfaction.

I will gladly recommend Zager to other. The quality and value for money of the Zager guitars cannot be topped.

How did you hear about this brand?
- In Feb, 2011, at 62 I had a bit of a 'heart event' and decided life is way too short not to begin learning the guitar which I have always wanted to play. - I bought my favorite Fender Strat from a guy through Ebay - This Guy turned me on to Denny and his guitars. Suggested that if I want to go acoustic, that I consider one. - I read the reviews, did my home work, and ordered this guitar. Z20E

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My other guitar is a Fender Stat so there is no comparison. they are a totally different experience.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Number one is the sound. the tonal quality is sweet and wonderful. I even get comments from across the room from my wife Gail on how great the sound of the guitar is. It resonates oh so well. I also like its playability. The set up is done in a manner where it is quite easy for me to get my medium sized fingers where they need to go.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Probably 800-1000 bucks.

How would you rate customer support?
Five Star Plus. Being in AZ, I had a little problem with buzz on high E, 12th fret. I ended up calling support and with no hassle what so ever, was able to send it back to Zager Co. and get a new one sent back to me. All of this took less than a week. The new guitar is perfect No buzz, just sweet sound. Zager's were in contact with me through out and I will say, with their service and products, they dont just "Talk the Talk", they also "Walk the Walk" and 100% do everything they say they will do to make things right. Try and find that level of service at most of you local stores these days where ever you live!!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely, without hesitation I would. 1. The Quality of the instrument. I have not been a prior guitar player but I have been a musician all of my life having played 5 other instruments for years. I know quality instruments when I play them. This is one!! 2. As I mentioned, the personal and honest service these folks do business with. Very rare these days. 3. The price. I spent a day recently in a local Guitar Center Store just "playing". There were no guitars there that I tried in the same price category that could compare. my Z played more like a Martin.

Additional comments:
all I can say is that I am very happy and 100% satisfied with this guitar. Super service and follow through with the company was "icing on the cake" in this day and age. my mailing address is: Russell Wagner; 143 E. Merritt Ave., Prescott, AZ 86301 thanks.

Very much so.

Additional comments:
I am really a beginner. I am 20 years old, have big hands and fingers. I always wanted to learn to play, and a couple of years ago I bought a guitar and took a few lessons. The difficulty I was having forming the chords with my big hands and I guess age related flexibility caused me so much frustration I quit. The biggest culprit was the A chord. I just couldn't get my three fingers on the adjacent strings in the same fret easily, and then I heard the buzzes and flat notes a lot of beginners are familiar with. It made changing chords to play a song impossible. A few weeks ago, I started practicing again and actually seemed to be getting somewhere, but the same difficulties arose, so I decided to look for a new guitar. I don't remember if I read about Zager first or saw it on Ebay, but the EZ-Play system sounded like what I was looking for. I read reviews and testimonials and decided to take the plunge. As soon as I received the guitar and took it out of the box, I played the dreaded A chord. I formed it without struggles and strummed, then picked. All the strings rang out and no buzzes. That moment alone has made me a satisfied customer. I strummed a few songs almost good enough to play in front of someone else. I am very happy. I can't talk very knowledgeably about action, fret height, etc. I am a very raw beginner. But I love to hear guitars and in the short time I have had my Zager I have enjoyed playing more than I ever have.

How did you hear about this brand?
By accident on the internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a 60's Gibson Hummingbird, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan and your guitar sounds if anything, superior. It's not as sharp a sound as the Gibson, more mellow, probably the difference in spruce and cedar, but I like it better for my "folkie" type music. Even though I had the Gibson professionally set up, custom nut and saddle, the Zager plays easier. I also play a Larrivee twelve string. Both the Gibson and the Larrivee are first class instruments, but in no way better than your unit.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It has a unique feel in the way it plays. I also like its mellow tone, and it is so easy on the fingers. The quality and woods are also outstanding.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
At least $2000.00

How would you rate customer support?
Best ever.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to purchase a quality instrument on a budget. I have compared it to a Martin (which I was considering before finding the Zager). Your quality is better than the new Martins. My opinion is that the big name makers, (Martin and Gibson) are now making their Guitars based on Business School principals of marketing, and losing the craftsmanship that made them great. I know a company has to make a profit, but it is a fine line of providing a quality item at a reasonable price. Zager has found it!

Zager EZ-Play ZAD50 OM Size Acoustic

How did you hear about this brand?
I deliberated long and hard, hemmed and hawed, wavered and vacillated, about first selecting the best guitar for the money (and for me) and then about ordering one online, sight-unseen and strings-unstrummed. But after two disappointing and fruitless visits to a couple of local (within an hour's drive) music/guitar shops in my neck of the woods, I was more confused than ever about whether to choose a dreadnought, OM, or concert-size acoustic, and, of course, which make and model to purchase. I'm a not-so-young beginner with no aspirations for greatness—just want to strum along with a couple of friends of mine who've dusted off their Martin D-28 and vintage Gibson Hummingbird, after many years of idleness, to help us all get through the long, cold, boring winters here in the boonies of western North Carolina. Anyway, I went back to my dutiful online research, reading reams of reviews, dozens of blogs, listening to countless clips of folks playing their guitars on U-tube, and keeping in mind my "$200 tops" budget for what would be my then-upcoming birthday present. I finally narrowed down my choices to three: a Seagull Original S6, which got very good reviews, on sale for $399, a Guild M-120 Concert (with hard case, but, unfortunately, zero reviews) for $529, or your Zager ZAD20 OM, on sale for $495 (just eking in under my limit) plus another $100 for the case (which put me over-budget, but not drastically). Not having the opportunity to hear in person any of these three guitars, I just had to go with my gut, and my gut kept me returning to the Zager web site, positive reviews, excellent feedback about your customer service, help and lesson video libraries, and, most importantly for a tender-fingered novice, the EZ-Play string system.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Well, it's incomparable :-) I have no old, other, or store-tried guitars in my life.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The quality of craftsmanship and the feel and size (OM) of the guitar. I'm still working on building calluses (week 2), so E-Z play or not, my fingertips are tender. However, if the action were any higher I'd be really discouraged, so I guess I also appreciate the action. My friend with the Martin D-28 tried out my new Zager and said it played easier than his Martin. So, there you go.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I truly do not know, but apparently at least half again what I paid for it.

How would you rate customer support?
Superb. The best I can remember in decades. Almost instaneous responses to e-mails, answers to questions, and kind considerations -- always sincere, friendly and accommodating.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. Because of its quality, value for the cost, and most-excellent customer service.

Additional comments:
I just started accessing the lesson library, and am duly impressed with all the contents and opportunities for me to learn online from Denny about the guitar and how to play it in the year ahead.

How did you hear about this brand?
I found Zager Guitars while searching E-bay and they immeidately caught my attention.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My new 20CE has a warm yet bright tone that really sounds great unplugged. The playability of this guitar makes it hard to put down. In fact, I am finding myself looking for ways to bring it everywhere I go if I think I will have time to play it. I presently own a Takamine EF-349 all mahogony body guitar as well. This Zager is very similar to the sound of the Takamine. I can't say I like the Zager 20CE sound more, but it a very warm and bright sound that makes it a pleasure to play. However, as advertised, the Zager Guitar is much easier to play, has more room for my fingers resulting in almost no string buss ever, and as others have stated, my fingers are feeling better since I have been playing the Zager. I have been playing the Zager now for about 2 weeks, around an hour a day and I am really enjoying this new Zager.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The fit and finish is really incredible and the sound is great as well.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$800 to $1000. But the support and personal attention of the Zager family makes it worth much more.

How would you rate customer support?
A++++++. I could not be happier.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I already have recommended it to all my friends. It's getting a lot of attention at church. I am so looking forward to playing it on stage tomorrow for the first time.

Additional comments:
I have never had a music company go to such lengths to earn my business. There will always be instruments out there that sound better and you will pay for it. But I can't say enough about the response I have gotten from Dennis Jr during this purchase and to me this makes the purchase so much more of a value. If you are reading this and you're undecided, take my word for it, you won't be disappointed by their guitars or the personal service that the Zager Guitar Company gives you. And the risk-free money back gaurantee makes the decision even easy for you.

How did you hear about this brand?
Just playing around on the internet looking for a new guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've owned some very high end guitars - from Fenders, Martins, Guilds, and a custom made Frank Gay and I'm as impressed with my Zager as anything I've ever owned or played. I've only had the guitar a short time but I love it already. It is in the top 3 guitars I've owned and I've no doubt it will quickly take over as #1.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I love the ease of playing the most and I'm really impressed by the beautiful tone that it delivers.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
It is right uo there with a Martin D28 in the $2800.00 range.

How would you rate customer support?
So far the support has been unbelievable. I've appreciated all the info I received and the contact I've had with Zager Guitars.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I'm going to be bragging about to everyone of my guitar buddies. The ease of play, the sound, the service and the exceptional value are going to be my highlights.

How did you hear about this brand?
Searching the internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
As a mainly electric guitar player, I've never really had a good acoustic guitar. But just as with a good electric, when you pick up this guitar, you can tell it is high quality. Originally I wanted to get a vintage MIJ dreadnaught. I stumbled on to your site and after hearing and reading about these guitars, I decided why not get a brand new guitar instead? I made a good decision.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's got to be the sound! So warm yet punchy at the same time. It sustains forever. Using a flat pick, you can hear wonderful overtones from each note that you pick.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Probably around $1000 to $1,200?

How would you rate customer support?
Good so far. No complaints. The lifetime guarantee and the full return policy tells me that this company believes in and stands by their products.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I already have recommended Zager to a couple of my friends. The quality you get for the price... how can you go wrong?

Additional comments:
I am so happy that I found your website. I look forward to many years of enjoyment with this guitar.

Albert Frevele <afrevele@hotmail.com>
Irvine, California
Model: zad20e

How did you hear about this brand?
I originally heard about this from an Internet site a few years ago. I was looking recently on EBay for an acoustic guitar and this popped up. Since I recognized the Zager name, and more importanlty, the Zager "EZ-Play" method of setting up a guitar, I looked again in more detail. The more I read the more I liked the idea.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The Zager guitar is equal to any premium high-priced guitar that I've personally seen and played. And it is superior to most. The only guitars that could compare aer very high priced Martins.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The SOUND! That tone is wonderful! And the playability. Simply unmatched.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1,800.00.

How would you rate customer support?
Denny and his son Dennis are first rate. They respond to your questions (even if they are dumb questions like mine) and give you real information, not just a sales line.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. Price and playability. To get this playability would cost 3-4 times as much from major guitar makers. The Zager is everything they say it is and more.

Additional comments:
What more can be said? If you are a beginner, this is the perfect way to start playing guitar. If you are experienced, this guitar will give you all you want in a performance instrument.

Through Boyd Moon a local Luthier.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It is my first guitar. It is much easier for me to play than my husbands Guitars. He has a 1968 Martin D28, a new dreadnaught Epiphone, an Alvarez classical guitar,(my next favorite after the Zager) and a $20 Ensenada.I tried a friends new small size Loar last week and I like my Zager much better.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
How easy it is to play without loss in sound quality.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$700 or $800.

excellent.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Oh yes!Because it is so easy to play and sounds great and is very competitively priced.

How did you hear about this brand?
Online Google search for acoustic guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The guitar I replaced was just an old beater guitar that had been my brothers....it had a pretty good sound but the ZAD 20 is much more balanced and much, much easier to play. One thing that caught my eye was the ease of play mentioned in the ads...I have a pretty busted up left hand from 55 years of living and my old guitar was very hard on my arthritis. Whether it is String Science or just a good set up I don't know or care...all I know is that the Zager plays very easy with no fret buzz or clinker notes. The other guitar I owned was an old Ovation Baladeer....1975 model that I bought brand new with one of my first paychecks when I got out of tech school and had a "real job". The Zager's sound is much more of a true wooden sound and much more alive and once again very easy to play as compared to the Ovation.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Playability and overall sound.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
This is a very subjective question but I have played much more expensive guitars that did not play as easy nor sound as good. If venturing a guess I would say it compares favorably sound wise with the $1000 guitars but at that price range you would probably have solid woods, but you would not have the abalone inlay nor the quality of finish which is on my Zager.

How would you rate customer support?
This is where I feel the company is head and shoulders above most other companies that sell online. Dennis and his staff are very responsive, but in fairness they really have to be since it is nearly impossible to do a side by side comparison before purchasing. It remains a fact that they truly have AAA+ customer support.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would definitely recommend others trying a Zager while doing their comparison shopping. Sound and playability are very subjective and what I like may not be another's cup of tea; however I think they owe it to themselves to play and listen to a Zager to make up their own minds rather than putting a lot of stock in other folk's reviews or opinions (good or bad). Based on my own tastes I would definitely recommend this to others.

How did you hear about this brand?
Was looking at Ovations & Martins......This past summer, I had attended a concert with the band ZOSO, a Led Zeppelin tribute band. While watching John McDaniel their lead guitarist play, it made me want to pick up the guitar again, something I hadn't done since I was in grade school. Then one day about a month ago, I was watching a utube video of him playing Bron-Y-Aur-Stomp and I thought "Wow that guitar sounds wonderful, what is it?" It was a Zager....and that's what got me started researching Zager guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a 1971 Epiphone Classical Acoustic which I had been learning with, before I bought my Zager, I went to my local music store and tried a Martin, It sounded great.....it was also $2200.00! Couldn't do it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It sounds gorgeous, clean and bright... but warm at the same time,and it is truly a beautiful guitar. I took it out of the box and it felt right the minute I sat down with it. It stays in tune.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
It feels and plays like the $2500.00 Martin I tried out. My fingers don't get sore with my Zager unless I play all day.

How would you rate customer support?
AWESOME!!!! I had a lot of questions, received lots of advice, very patient and helpful.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
It's sooooo easy to play..... it sounds wonderful..... your not fainting at the price.... customer service is unbelievable.
