Zager EZ-Play ZAD50CE Acoustic Electric Black Lacquer $1095
On Sale $895

Possibly the last guitar you'll ever buy. The ZAD50CE has all the prerequisites of the traditional American guitar. Solid wood construction, hand scalloped bracing, hand filed frets, genuine Grover tuning machines, each guitar finished personally by Denny in our shop in Lincoln Nebraska. Similar in design to our Zager ZAD20E, except in building the ZAD50CE Denny decided to use a cutaway box design, more intricate detail in the woods, and for 2015 Denny installed our Fishman 60 Series electronics package from our $1500 ZAD80CE. Pros using it on stage say it matches or betters $2000 instruments, but it's 50% easier to play and about half the price since you're buying direct from our workshop in Nebraska. Be sure to read customer reviews and testimonials. 100% money back guarantee including shipping fees both ways. It's a lifetime instrument so it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Features (rollover to view details)

Style - Venetian Cutaway Style - Venetian Cutaway A "Venetian Cutaway" is a guitar that has a section of the body "cut away" by the neck which makes it easier to slide your hand down low to reach chords near the sound hole. Denny braces the cutaways a little differently then his full box guitars so sound quality matches. If youre a player that spends a lot of time on that part of the neck a cutaway box is invaluable.
Top - Sitka Spruce Top - Sitka Spruce The most important part of an acoustic guitar is its top. The top acts like a speaker. When a string is plucked energy is transferred to the top and the top starts to move. Spruce offers a tight, punchy low end response with great projection. Players who demand a powerful sound with tons of projection will hear the benefit of a Sitka spruce top. Used on only the highest quality guitars in the world.
Back & Sides - Mahogany Back & Sides - Mahogany One of the most popular tone woods used on acoustic guitars today. If youre looking for punchy bass, solid mids and sparkling highs mahogany is the wood you want on your next guitar. Acoustic guitars in general tend to live in the midrange portion of the sound spectrum, and mahogany in particular displays this characteristic best. Mahogany's tendency to emphasize midrange tones gives this guitar a rich full sound no matter the playing style. You can fingerpick, strum, or flatpick and mahogany always delivers.
Neck - Mahogany Neck - Mahogany Mahoganyone of the most popular tone woods used on acoustic guitars for the last 50 years.
Headstock - Mahogany Headstock - Mahogany Mahogany is lightweight yet strong, and its timeless look is used on many quality guitars. The guitar head stock configuration is a registered trademark and is used under license from C.F. Martin & Co. Inc. of Nazareth, Pennsylvania, USA.
Bracework - Zager Design (hand scalloped) Bracework - Zager Design (hand scalloped) The technique of scalloping or shaving the braces can have a huge impact on the power and tone of an acoustic guitar. By shaving or reducing the thickness of the brace, it becomes more flexible and therefore lets the top move more freely. When done by a Master Luthier the brace maintains its structural integrity, while making the top more efficient. The result is faster attack, longer sustain, more bass, more power, and an overall improvement in the whole tone system.
Rosette - Abalone Rosette - Abalone Abalone type inlay is found on only the highest quality guitars. Laid by hand one piece at a time, the color and translucence of each piece changes with different amounts of light. Not only does it add to the look of your guitar, but it also adds to the value.
Fret Marker - Pearl Fret Marker - Pearl Used on only the highest quality guitars. Laid by hand on the fret board one piece at a time. It's a very tedious, time consuming process but the results are breathtaking.
Pick Guard - Gloss Black Pick Guard - Gloss Black Genuine glossy black pick guard. Standard teardrop shape. Adds beauty and protects your instrument at the same time. Lifetime warranty. After years of use we'll replace your pick guard free of charge and make your guitar look new again. This is what makes our 42 year old family owned company different from the rest...we take care of our customers and they continue to come back year after year.
Back Detail - Zipper Stripe Back Detail - Zipper Stripe Laid by hand one piece at a time. Adds to the overall beauty and sets off the color of the wood. Found on only the highest quality guitars in the world.
Truss Rod - Custom Adjustment Setting Truss Rod - Custom Adjustment Setting Denny designs his guitars with a truss rod adjustment setting that allows you to dial in your guitar to your particular playing style. In this way if you're a heavy handed player you can set the action higher so you can "get on it" a little for more power, and if you're lighter handed touch player you can dial in the action low so you can move faster and play longer with less fatigue.
Built In Transducer - Genuine Fishman Built In Transducer - Genuine Fishman Fishman transducers are the highest quality transducers used in acoustic guitars today. A transducer is an amplification device placed under the saddle which allows you to plug into an amplifier and play an acoustic guitar like an electric guitar. This is all run by an on-board electronics package and equalizer that allows you to control the sound. A transducer properly installed by a pro luthier will bring out the bass response and rich ambiance of your guitar's wood. Done improperly your guitar will sound flat and have uneven tone quality.
Built in Automatic Tuner - Genuine Fishman Built in Automatic Tuner - Genuine Fishman Ask any pro who makes the finest guitar electronics systems in the world and 9 out of 10 will say Fishman. An electronic tuner allows you to tune your guitar in a fraction of the time it takes using conventional tuning methods. Simply hit a string and the LCD indicator guides you into perfect pitch. A red and green light instantly lets you know when the tune is dead on. This is a very important tool for the new player who is trying to develop and train their ear for perfect pitch. It's also helps the professional player who wants to get in perfect tune fast.
Built in Equalizer - Genuine Fishman Built in Equalizer - Genuine Fishman Fishman equalizers are the highest quality equalizers used in acoustic guitars today. The equalizer is an electronic unit that controls the sound and volume when plugged into an amplifier or PA system. There are adjustments for highs, mids, lows, and presence. Fishman EQ's are used exclusively on high end acoustics by artists such as Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Alan Jackson and Aerosmith to name just a few.
Tuning Machines - Genuine Grover Tuning Machines - Genuine Grover Genuine Grover sealed tuning machines are found on only the finest guitars made. Look at tuners on $2500+ acoustics and you will see the majority have "Grovers." Unlike open gear tuners where the tuning mechanism is exposed, Grover sealed tuners contain a lubricant that keep the tuning mechanism sealed air-tight so the gears turn smooth and continue to for the life of your instrument. Lifetime warranty. If you have a tuner go bad we'll replace it free of charge for life.
Nut - Bone Hand Carved Nut - Bone Hand Carved Denny hand carves his nuts from bone for each guitar so the strings are set lower with custom spacing. Lower string heights make it easier to press down to form chords and it also increases finger speed. Custom spacing allows you to move faster with less buzzes, mutes, and rattles because youre no longer bumping adjacent strings. Custom string spacing makes it easier for all hands sizes big and small. Lifetime warranty. Break a nut and we'll replace it free of charge for life.
Saddle - Tusq Hand Carved Saddle - Tusq Hand Carved Denny hand carves each saddle for each individual guitar. Denny also adjusts the intonation settings to bring the guitar harmonically in balance with itself. This not only makes your guitar easier to play, but it also makes it sound more powerful. Customers say our guitars fall into tune easier and stay in tune longer...this is one of the reasons why. Denny uses only genuine "Tusq" brand saddles on his guitars which you generally only find on higher dollar acoustics . Lifetime warranty. Break a saddle and we'll replace it free of charge for life.
Strings - Zager Custom Lights (by Martin) Strings - Zager Custom Lights (by Martin) Denny only uses genuine Martin guitar strings on all of his guitars. Ask any pro player who makes the highest quality strings in the world and 9 out of 10 will say Martinsince 1833. We have customers using all brands and gauges of strings on our guitars with excellent results but this is the string that Denny sets all of his guitars up with.
Frets - Zager Soft Touch (hand filed) Frets - Zager Soft Touch (hand filed) Denny hand files each fret one at a time on every guitar that leaves our shop. By filing the frets Denny achieves two important things. When sliding up and down the neck your fingers will no longer get irritated and sore and you won't suffer from what we call "String Bite" and overall finger fatigue. Secondly, when you file the frets by hand each fret will have the same uniform height. 9 times out of 10 when you have a buzzing string it has nothing to with your playing, its because you have a guitar with a fret thats sitting away from the fret board hitting a string.
Warranty - Lifetime Warranty - Lifetime Our warranty is simple. Lifetime on all guitars. A quality guitar should be made to last a lifetime and if it doesn't it wasn't a quality guitar to begin with.

How did you hear about this brand?
Searching for acoustic guitars on the internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've been playing guitar for almost 40 years now. In that time I've owned many different brands. Martin, Gibson, Fender, Seagull, Epiphone, Alvarez, Ibanez, Washburn, Cordoba, Squier, Takamine, etc... My Zager Zad900CE is by far the best sounding,playing guitar I've ever owned. The craftsmanship and fine detail that Denny Zager puts into his guitars is exquisite. Looks like a fine piece of art.


If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$4200+

How would you rate customer support?
2nd to none. Best customer service I ever knew.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would and I have. The ZAD900CE easily competes with some of the best and most expensive guitars there are at a fraction of their price.

Additional comments:
If you're planning to spend a lot of money on a higher-end Martin, Taylor or Gibson I recommend trying a Zager ZAD 900CE first. This is a fantastic guitar not to mention customer service that is 2nd to none. Comes with a lifetime warranty and there's absolutely no risk to try one. If you decide for whatever reason you are not satisfied Zager pays shipping both ways.





<wsm_sdm1978@yahoo.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
I came across the Zager Guitar website shortly after purchasing a Gibson J45. The reviews and photos online peaked my curiosity. I was not 100% satisfied with the Gibson J45 and came across these beautiful looking Zager guitars with stellar reviews by everyone that had one. I saw that there are quite a few professionals using Zager guitars as well and that impressed me most so I decided to place an order. The reviews all looked too good to be true but due to Zager's 100% money-back guarantee I decided to take a chance. While I was waiting for my guitar to arrive I went to a few music stores and played several guitars. Martin, Taylor, Gibson, and other brands as well. Some of the guitars I played were in the $2200-$6000+ price range. Finally I got my Zager. It was packed perfectly and was in tune right out of the box. I was blown away by not only the sound but by the appearance as well. This is a well made, gorgeous looking guitar that sounds great and plays like a dream. Denny Zager has his craft down and does it right.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
In my almost 40 years of playing guitar I've owned quite a few. Every brand from Martin, Gibson, Fender, Alvarez, Cordoba, Squier, Ibanez, Alvarez, Sigma, Washburn, Epiphone, Seagull, etc... No guitar I've owned or played can touch my ZAD900CE. The reviews and advertisements for Zager Guitars are all true. You can believe it or not. All I can say is if you're planning on spending $3000+ or more on a guitar try a Zager first. There's nothing to lose as they will pay shipping and insurance both ways if you are not satisfied. Best customer service I've ever come across.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's hard to pick a favorite. I love everything about this guitar but if I had to choose I guess I'd say the sound. Unplugged and plugged in. The Fishman Aura System on this guitar is amazing. It reproduces the natural sound beautifully.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Easily $4200-$5200. Just the looks and appearance alone compares to guitars that cost that much. The beautiful solid Spruce top with rosewood back and sides, the abalone inlay, the hand bent maple binding, mother of pearl, etc... Gorgeous.

How would you rate customer support?
Dennis, Jr. provided me with the best customer service I've ever experienced. He was very professional in his approach and answered every email (and I sent a myriad of emails to him with my questions) usually within 10-15 minutes of contacting him. Not only that but I ordered the standard wooden hard shell case and was pleasantly surprised to find that he upgraded me to the higher end case for free. Threw in a very nice Zager capo, extra strings, picks and of course the Zager T-Shirt! Zager's record with the BBB, a long with thousands of satisfied, happy customers speaks for itself. I will definitely be buying more guitars from the Zager family. I already have my sights set on the ZAD80CE.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would and already have without question. This is a very well crafted, beautiful looking guitar that plays like the ads say. My friend owns a nice Taylor which is a very fine guitar. He loved my Zager and couldn't believe how well it played and sounded.

Additional comments:
A great product with the best customer support... What more could one want?!





<DenverCOJT@ymail.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
Searching for a small, high quality solid wood guitar, I came across YouTube videos and the Zagerguitar.com website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It is a very attractive instrument, and obviously very well-made. Since it is a solid mahogany guitar, it is resonant and has good sustain, given its smaller size.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Very pleased about the sound that comes from this 3/4 size instrument. My other 2 guiitars are dreadnoughts, and the purpose in selecting this one was to be small enough to take on trips. This fits the bill, without the tinny sound from other "travel-size guitars that I tried.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$600-$700

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent, very responsive. Quick replies to even to my simplest questions.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Definitely! It is easier to play, as advertised. I am only a beginner, but our musical family has several (four, to be exact) experienced players, and they are all impressed with the quality of craftsmanship and playability. We regularly have family gatherings, and most times we share music. The Zager is one of the first guitars grabbed when we bring out the instruments!








How did you hear about this brand?
I was searching Ebay for a good used acoustic electric and I noticed an add for Zager easy play guitars. Curiosity got to me, so I checked out the web site, read the reviews,and started researching the Zager brand.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There is no comparison with the guitars I've owned. This new ZAD20CE sounds fantastic, brand new, right out of the box. I'm impressed with the the tone, especially the deep, rich bass. I didn't expect that from a cut away. If it sounds this good brand new, I'm excited to hear it as it ages.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The tone, low string height, comfort of the neck, beautiful looks and craftsmanship, over all playability. It's everything it's advertised to be.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1800 - $2000.00

How would you rate customer support?
10 + out of ten. I always received a response from Dennis within 20 minutes of sending an e-mail. Denny Zager's company is first class all the way, from his product to the employees.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes absolutely. I don't think you're going to beat the quality at the price they sell them for. They also back all there guitars with a 100% guarantee.

Additional comments:
Denny and his son run their company the right way. They have an outstanding product at a great price, with customer service that is second to none. How can you beat that??





<rush@jgarth.net>

How did you hear about this brand?
Thru extensive research the brand continuously made the top of the list

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Overall quality is a cut above

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The quality of this guitar makes choosing a favorite part of the guitar itself but what most stands out is the quality of the support both before and after the sale

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I personally do not know enough about acoustic guitars to estimate prices but for the quality I consider the price I paid to be very fair.

How would you rate customer support?
I do not believe that there is another guitar company that can even come close to the quality of the customer support both before and after the sale. How many name brand guitars can you pick up the phone and immediate support or email and always get a response within 24 hours even on Saturday or Sunday. I do not think that you will find another company that will come even close.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely because of the customer support alone would be enough to justify recommending these guitars then once the quality comes into play I do not believe that it would be possible to find a better choice.

Additional comments:
The quality and price of these guitars is exceptional that plus the level of support a person could not ask for a better combination





<dfreitag@sjm.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
I was doing some research in preperation to purchasing a new guitar and stumbled across a You Tube video by Rusty Shackleford showing the new Zager ZAD900CE that just came in the mail.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I currently have and have had many guitars in the past and I have never seen a guitar as beautiful and well made as the Zager ZAD900CE especially as inexpensive as it was. Guitars two or three times the cost pale in comparison. The playability is incredible. This is the best setup guitar I have ever experienced.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
When I first received this guitar in the mail, I excitedly opened up the box and pulled out the nicely cased guitar. After looking through all of the extras that came with the guitar, I finally opened the case to see a work of art. My jaw literaly dropped open and then a big smile came across my face. After admiring the workmanship and quality woods that were used, I finaly got ready to play it. Being delivered during winter on a UPS truck, I was all ready to tune it up first. To my utter suprise it was in perfect tune. I played it for quite a whlie before I could force my self to put it down. I have been playing the guitar for weeks and it hasn't gone out of tune yet. I have never seen a guitar with such perfect setup to stay in tune so long. The tonation is spot on no matter where I go on the neck. Granted I don't thrash the guitar when I play. I'm a soft methodic strummer and picker as Dennis stresses in his videos. I could realy go on for hours how unique this guitar experience is. It's safe to say that I don't beleive I will ever come across a finer guitar than my Zager ZAD900CE in my life time.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would have extimated $2000 or more.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer service at Zager Custome Guitars couldn't be better. Quaestions are answered quickly and Denny is always available when I go online. They're the best.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would and have raved about this guitar to many and will continue to. Everyone that picks it up is amazed at the sound, quality of the woods and playability.

Additional comments:
I wish I had found this guitar 20 or 30 years ago.





<acollins1959@gmail.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
An ad on Facebook

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It plays much easier and sounds better than my Yamaha. The only thing my old guitar has over the Zager is age (30+ years), and I am sure my Zager will also sound better with age.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
How much easier it is to play. But I also like how it sounds. And how it looks. It's just an overall beautiful guitar. Oh, and all the freebies and upgrades were also great! Thanks Dennis!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Over $1000.00, easily.

How would you rate customer support?
Top notch. Need I say more?

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would absolutely recommend this guitar (or any other Zager models) to anyone like me that has arthritis in their hands, making it harder and less enjoyable to play. Or anyone who just wants an overall great guitar experience.

Additional comments:
My guitar arrived last night. I followed the instructions and let it sit at room temperature for 2 hours before opening it (longest 2 hours of my life). I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was mostly still in tune despite the fact that it had sat in a cold delivery truck for who knows how long (most of the day I am guessing) and just needed some minor adjustments. Since it was late and I had to get up the next morning for work, I had planned to just play it for a few minutes then go to bed. I ended up playing it for over an hour and had to force myself to put it up and go to bed. I must say that this guitar lives up to all expectations. Not only is it the easiest guitar I have ever played, it has the most beautiful tone that I know will only improve with age. With my hands starting to develop arthritis I have been frustrated with my playing. I almost never got my guitar out anymore, and when I did, I would usually put it up after 20 - 30 minutes in frustration. It hurt to play and I found myself muting strings that I never used to. Barre chords were especially difficult for me. I can honestly say that I had no problems with muting strings and even barre chords were a breeze. I could have played far longer than I did last night with little discomfort. Thanks to this guitar, I am actually enjoying playing again! This evening I got out my Fender Passport and plugged in. I was anxious to hear how the electronics sound. I have to say it sounds just as good plugged in as it does standalone. I love the built-in tuner! Thanks to you and your dad for making playing guitar fun again!

How did you hear about this brand?
Internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The tone is amazing, well balance from E string to E string.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The sound, it jumps out of the guitar.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I really have nothing to compare it to. The sound is so rich I would expect to cost at least twice what I paid.

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent. Timely and helpful.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, I would definitely recommend to others. Tone, ease of play, beautifully built,

Additional comments:
It has been forty years since I last played and if anything this Zager has made it as easy as I could expect. There is a big learning curve for me right now, but the guitar is so much fun to play and the low tension on the strings make it easier on my fingers that I am excited to sit down each day and practice.

Additional comments:
If Zager was Around when I first started playing as a kid, I be so much better because it plays so easy er then that old Silver Tune Guitar did that I work so hard to get by delivering News Paper in Med Winter on my paper route out in the Meddle of Kansas down on the Farm, Play a Zager you will see one of the best in Sound, Quality of workmanship and the hardware is top Quality,,But you know that you pay for the best that you can; that is why Zager is a great deal, your working with the hole Family at the Zager Guitar Company and directly







How did you hear about this brand?
I happened to stumble upon it when searching for a smaller suitable guitar for myself.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It is much smaller than the full size Jasmine accoustic I had, but I wanted a smaller guitar. And, what is so pleasing, although smaller, it has a wonderful full deep sound. It truly is amazing for a smaller guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
There's so much! Besides it's smaller size, it's beautiful, plays so easy and sounds great. I guess it's just perfect for me, that's the best part.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I never owned a very expensive guitar before, but after checking online what quality guitars can cost, the Zager was a terrific deal. It is such a prize to own.

How would you rate customer support?
So far it has been exceptional. Any questions I have are answered quickly and additional advice is always given as well.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes I would. Especially, if the individuals were petite as I am. It makes all the difference in the world to play a guitar that feels comfortable and is sized right for you. It makes you want to play it more and practice. You're really enjoying the experience so much more.

Additional comments:
I'm so glad I found out about Zager guitars and I think it's neat to own a guitar that was made by Denny Zager, who was part of the duo known for the song "In the Year 2525." I remember loving to listen to that song when I was a teen.





<akronym1@neo.rr.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
I found the Zager website while surfing the internet for some other guitar information. I was impressed by the quality and quantity of helpful information on their site, and after reading reviews about Zager guitars on other sites, decided to take a chance. This was the first time I ever bought any guitar without putting my hands on it first.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My Zager is the ZAD20EVS model. As seen in the picture, it is a cutaway model and not the same body style shown on their website. The quality of my guitar is top-notch. I have been playing for 20 years, and have owned many acoustics including Yamahas, Guilds, Taylors, Alvarez, Ibanez and recently a Martin. The build quality and the electronics compare very favorably with any of them. I have recommended Zager to my friends.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Aside from its playability, the beauty of the finish is awesome. I've always loved a sunburst finish, and this one is gorgeous.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
If this guitar were sold retail in a brick and mortar outlet, it would likely be priced in the $720 - $900 range. That includes a professional-quality, padded, hard shell case.

How would you rate customer support?
I've never had better anywhere. My emails are answered in an hour or less. All of my questions are thoroughly answered.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I have recommended it to others. I liked the idea of finding a quality guitar that is not one of the same old brand names that everyone owns. That makes the guitar special. Zager's return guarantee cinched the deal for me.

Additional comments:
My order was upgraded with no additional cost. The body style I wanted was not available, so I had to wait a little longer, and eventually got the cutaway dreadnaught instead, with better electronics, and the more expensive case. Worth the wait!

How did you hear about this brand?
Dennis was kind enough just a few years ago to help out a bunch of Veterans with a unbelievable deal on a Guitar to help redirect their emotion from PTSD to a more normal life and it has been the best thing that has helped many, many veterans find peace i their lives and it is a service that has been the biggest help in their lives

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is fantastic, it's been played by over 75 veterans with great enthusiasm and given many a sense of peace they never knew was possible. Many played guitar before and even those who never had even touched a guitar found they could play after learning just a few cords. This is the best acoustic made bar none

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The sound and playability are both just phenominal, This HAS to be one of the finest Martin to shameever made. Puts a

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

How would you rate customer support?
The best in all the business

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
They are made so well they can take a LOT of abuse and still hold together fairly well!

Additional comments:
You will never meet a kinder more generous and giving man that Dennis Zagger. He always makes sure everything is 100% and his satisfaction with your guitar is his top concern





<fergoz@comcast.net>

How did you hear about this brand?
I came across an ad on the Internet. I was intrigued about their claim of an "easy play" guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have an older Guild and a Taylor mini, I wanted something smaller to travel with, as well as a smaller guitar that would be easier to handle.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Outstanding details, high gloss; abalone inlay; nice mahogany ; quality high-end hardware; but best of all, the bright tone. And did I mention The high quality case that it came in (a case that Martin guitars uses).

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Although this is quite an inexpensive guitar, it is not a cheap guitar by any means. A cheap guitar lacking sound quality and craftsmanship would cost you the $300 and sum dollars that I had paid for this guitar. This should be at least an $800 guitar, especially since it is not marked "made in China" and is hand crafted in America!

How would you rate customer support?
Instant contact and communication (you will note that on their website, a window pops up telling you that "Dennis is in" if you want to have "live chat" about any questions that you might have.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Highly recommend, five star!!! There is no better guitar on the market, especially for the price. Again, it is not only the quality and craftsmanship that is offered, but the crisp clean tone that this little baby produces!

Happy New Year to all!







How did you hear about this brand?
I came across an ad on the Internet. I was intrigued about their claim of an "easy play" guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have an older Guild and a Taylor mini, I wanted something smaller to travel with, as well as a smaller guitar that would be easier to handle.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Outstanding details, high gloss; abalone inlay; nice mahogany ; quality high-end hardware; but best of all, the bright tone. And did I mention The high quality case that it came in (a case that Martin guitars uses).

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

How did you hear about this brand?
I read a lot of reviews across the Internet in my search for a quality Acoustic-Electric guitar made either in the United States or Canada by craftsman. In my research, I came across Zager Guitars manufactured in Lincoln, Nebraska. The positive reviews made by so many customers were a major influence in my purchase of a Zager Guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I purchased a Fender Jimmy Dale Kingman SCE earlier this year. I was extremely disappointed in the workmanship, quality and sound. I ended replacing the nut, saddle, pins with TUSQ and put on Martin Silk and Steel strings to help improve the sound (which I did based upon Denny Zager's recommendation). Prior to purchasing, I looked at Tanglewood, Martin and Taylor guitars at my local guitar store. I purchased the ZAD20CEOM and couldn't be happier with the rich sound, quality and craftsmanship.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I have short fingers and large palms, which is a bad combination for a guitar player. I selected the orchestra size based upon Denny's recommendation and I could not be happier. The guitar simply "fits" in my hand. I love the sound, the beautiful wood tone and the inlay on the neck. I am looking forward to many years of playing and my next Zager purchase!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1200

How would you rate customer support?
Denny Zager has strong customer focused philosophy and practice. If all American companies embodied their commitment, communication and ethic, we would not have an economic crisis. Prior to my purchase, I had emailed Denny Zager to ask a few questions and to get recommendations, fully expecting an email back in a week or two. Imagine my surprise to get a response back within minutes! We communicated a number of times prior to my purchase. I have a strong feeling of trust with Zager. I hope to be able to meet them one day. Thank you for the excellent communication. At the risk of sounding corny, Zager treats customers like family.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Beautiful Sound. Quality and craftsmanship. Unbelievable Value and beauty. Customer focused commitment to service and satisfaction

How did you hear about this brand?
I came across Zager Guitar while researching guitars online.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I purchased the ZAD20E - Sunburst and it is everything and more than Dennis and Denny talk about in their online videos. I own several acoustic and electric guitars - Primarily been a Fender owner - This is the best acoustic guitar in my collection.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The playability & sound is the best in my collection - Frankly this guitar is a piece of art both visual & sound!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
If I would have picked this guitar up in the music store and began playing - I would have guess the price tag be anywhere from $1,200-$2,000. It most definitely compares to Martin Acoustic Guitars without question!

How would you rate customer support?
The customer service is top notch! I spent over a week emailing Dennis Zager, Jr. with questions/concerns and each email was returned within an hour at most - Most of the time he responded within minutes - It was better customer service than if I where in a music store face to face with a sales associate. The guitar was shipped within a day of purchase and received within a few days - It was packaged exactly as demonstrated in the online video - Clearly with the up most care in mind.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would absolutely recommend Zager Guitars! As a matter of fact I have already passed your website and contact information along to several of my musician friends - Purchasing this guitar was an absolute pleasure. Denny and Dennis ... You should be very proud of your work and the business you have built. Keep up the great work! You have a customer for life here!!

Additional comments:
If you are considering a Zager Guitar and you are hesitant because you are purchasing sight unseen or because it's an online only buy - DON'T BE! You will not be disappointed. Guaranteed! I normally don't provide feedback but; in this case I felt it important to do so - Denny and Dennis deserve credit for great customer service and the beautiful guitar's they build - Thank you again guys!

How did you hear about this brand?
Returning to the website to see what you had to offer. I loved the mahogany guitar I bought before from you. I gave that one away. I bought an Z-80 and haven't looked back.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I'm not a 'wood-sniffer.' If a 'less expensive' guitar meets my needs and wants, why buy a piece of overpriced wood because it has "Martin" on it? I do have a 1975 Gibson J-55 which is my favorite guitar in all ways. But in the stores, I can't tell a PRS from a Luna from a Martin. I doubt 99% of people out there can.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's warmth. I had never played a cedar top guitar. The tones are magical. At first I didn't like it; it seemed a little heavy and dull. But as I played into it and it acclimatized, it sounded beautiful. I've already been offered money and a trade, which I won't take.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I think I said before 1000 to 1200. I underestimated that. My friends who've (I've allowed...) to play it all price it in the $2000 area because of the detail. I covered the logo and most thought it a Martin D-35.

How would you rate customer support?
Real good. I recall you had some difficulties while I was trying to resolve a thing over a case. You kindly took your time to resolve it. Thank you.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. Best bang for your buck if you want a beautiful, great sounding guitar at a reasonable price. DON'T LET THE "WOOD-SNIFFERS" in the music stores influence you. Or your friend who just spent a fortune on a Martin and of COURSE thinks it's the 'greatest sounding guitar on the planet.' Yes, tone woods matter on acoustic guitars. But these are very nicely built with quality woods! They just won't bump the price $2000 because of hype and advertising.

Additional comments:
I waited a while to post another review. After I 'played in' the guitar, I find it's my "go-to" now. Sounds great, looks great, and the damn thing is ALWAYS in tune when I take it out of the case! Thanks guys. regards to Denny Sr. and the rest.

Like driving a Ferrari when you are used to an AMC Pacer

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Playability - I have always fought to play - now I am Learning to play. I feel like the doors have been thrown wide open to the world of guitar playing. I know I will achieve my playing goals now!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I have been checking out Gibson, Fender, Taylor, and Martin in the music shops. I decided to bite the bullet and get one in the $800 to $1,200 range. I probably would have passed by this guitar if I had saw it in the shop. I would have thought it was WAY out of my price range.

How would you rate customer support?
Top notch. Received answers to my questions fast and reliable.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes...beginners need a guitar that allows them to play longer with less fatigue. Pros and advanced players need a guitar they can call their own and brag about. I feel these guitars run that gambit. Hats off the the Zagers!

Get one..then you will see. No risk...the Zager family will take care of you!

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a really nice 25th aniversary Alvares that I have enjoyed for years. I'm amazed how much better my Zager sounds.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The width of the neck (I have big fingers) and the fact that I don't have to press the string as hard to make clear notes.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$2,200 - $3,000

How would you rate customer support?
A+++

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Oh yes. This guitar compares to the finest Martin, Gibson or Takemine I've ever held, at half the price.

Additional comments:
I'd never held a Zager guitar and had been wanting a new guitar for years now. I can't believe I bought one without actually holding one first...I'm so glad I did.





<summernightfest_pa2001@comcast.net>

How did you hear about this brand?
From a guitarist friend. He said there was a great affordable guitar from a company in Nebraska. He couldn't recall the name. I did a search and found your site. Then, another local guy I know bought a ZAD20Emhgny just like the one delivered to my door last week. Tried it and wanted one.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar surpasses any I've owned, a Washburn, an Epiphone, an Ovation. I've tried Martins and Gibsons in stores and prefer my new Zager to any of them. The quality jumps out at you.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The playability. It is like wearing silk. So smooth and balanced and easy.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
It would have to be in the $1120-$1220 range based on my experiences.

How would you rate customer support?
I have yet to have a problem, but based on my limited interaction, I would have to say it is 10 out of 10. Or better. Certainly the kind of customer support rarely seen any more. My first contact was an email with a couple questions before purchase. It was responded to personally by Denny Jr. within 5 minutes. There were several after that and the response time was just as quick. It is so refreshing to be treated in a way that makes one feel more than just another customer. If I have any problems with my guitar in the future, I have no doubts I'll be treated just as well.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. Already have. The guitar is beautiful for one thing. It has the look of quality and personal care. It feels great in your hands, and plays like nothing I've ever tried. Tone is balanced and lovely. I am thrilled.








How did you hear about this brand?
I was searching the web for guitar music tabs and saw the Zager advertisement. Never heard of Zager before and ignored it for a while, as I thought it was a con about being easier to play, less stress on your finger tips etc. I wanted to practice a lot but I couldn't, my fingertips gave out. Then after doing more challenging quick barre chord work and arpeggio playing I developed tendonitis in my fretting arm. Even after a break of playing the guitar and then later back to play again, the tendonitis came back. I thought this was the end of playing the guitar and so out of desperation I decided to make a chance on these Zagers. What could I lose, except my money or I get the guitar and find there would be no difference and therefore a waste of money. I was taking a chance being in Australia and buying it from a place in Lincoln, Nebraska, I thought what a risk. Well how wrong was I, after a 3 month wait, I received the guitar and this was the moment of truth. Is this all a con. Well absolutely not and I have to say I was emotional. The sound was fantastic, the neck works like the speed of a Ferrari, I could do rapid barre chord changes. I have to say you have to learn to not put so much pressure on the string, you have to relax and it still plays brilliantly and no buzz. I noticed it especially with my soft fingertips, as I had stopped playing the guitar for 3-4 months, before receiving the Zager. The best thing now is I can play a lot longer and after 5 months NO TENDONITIS ! My guitar tutor thought I was wasting my money until he played the guitar and he was really surprised how well it could play. He just couldn't believe I could get a custom guitar for the price and be so forgiving in playing notes with a great loud clear sound. He agreed with me that the guitar sounds like a piano, it was so full and clear.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Chalk and cheese in comparison. When I developed tendonitis I was desperate, tried different strings and went to guitar stores to play different guitars including very expensive ones. It was after this search for the holy grail I decided to buy the Zager.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Incredible sound. Since getting the Zager I have never had to use the amp. I used the amp on my other guitars to get a good sound but with the Zager it is loud enough and has a great piano sound.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Easily $2000+

How would you rate customer support?
Fantastic, very quick response to my questions. I was a bit nervous around the 3rd month as I thought this guitar was not real and I would never get it. I felt assured by Dennis but in the back of my mind I still had some doubt. Well that is in the past I have my treasured Zager. Love the case, tee shirt, extra strings etc.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Most certainly, anybody who cares to listen. The guitar is impressive in finish and appearance and I really don't think I will ever get the feeling I want another guitar. Before the Zager I was continually thinking of getting another guitar to get the holy grail sound or always changing my strings as I was hooked on the new sound they gave but they quickly dulled. I find I can have the strings last a lot longer on the Zager as you still get a great sound.

Additional comments:
I always look forward to playing the Zager. My guitar tutor is envious. Some people have said to me you will never be able to play other non Zager guitars well. I think who cares, I say why should playing a guitar be torture to play, sore fingers, short practice times, getting tendonitis etc. It should be enjoyable. It has been my best decision to buy the Zager, I wish I knew a lot earlier about these guitars.







How did you hear about this brand?
I found Zager guitars through surfing the internet after two failed attempts to find a decent 3/4 size guitar in the local chain. I heard the You-Tube demo and the Zager sounded like a real sweet guitar so I dived in to learn what I could about their 3/4 size and their company.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The first 3/4 size guitar I bought was a Mitchell. It looked great, but was a little ukulele sounding. It was very inexpensive and the store's satisfaction policy is quite reasonable so I bought it and took it home. It seemed to get tinnier on the way home, and the first time I used a capo, the various strings went to differing degrees of sharp. It wouldn't hold its tuning, either! Back it went. Figuring you usually get what you pay, but not wanting to make a larger investment, I settled on what I now call a plastic faux-Martin. Sure, it was twice as much money, but it sounded pretty good, held its tuning and the capo produced even steps across the scale. It went back two days later when the back decided to leave the rest of the guitar! When I first tuned up and played the 3/4 Zager I'm sure I got a stupid, but well-pleased, smile across my face that I'm sure hasn't left yet (the smile that is. My wife will tell you the rest is permanent!). I also have a Yamaha FS730, and two Washburns. A WF27SCE dread that plays and sounds as good or better than those costing twice as much and a model WP27SNS parlor-size that really sounds just as good, but different and pleasant. I am thrilled to say that I now have the 3/4 size I wanted which is every bit as sweet as the guitars I have become used to. Believe me, I have been blessed to find such well-voiced guitars!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The thing I like most about my Zager, of course, is playing it! It is a joy to play laid back in my recliner where I spend a lot of time because of my back. The dread size isn,t quite as easy to play reclined! and, it sure is handy to cart around! I am still amazed at the full, rich tone and volume this little guitar achieves. No more boxy-sounding, nor tinny, nor ukulele-like guitars being played here anymore! No more shiny, but cheap guitars. No more plastic guitars. Genuine tonewoods where they are supposed to be and quite attractive to boot!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I Would expect a guitar of this quality and voice to be at least $700 a bargain.

How would you rate customer support?
I haven't had to really use customer support for anything but a change in shipping instructions. I can say that all my contacts have been pleasant and you can tell there is a customer orientation to the folks a Zager.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would whole-heartedly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a 3/4 size guitar for travel, or a child, to play in a recliner or just as a second or third guitar. It really sounds so good it can stand on its own if you just would like to have only one guitar, but life is short!

Additional comments:
My dad always told me that even a blind hog can find an acorn every now and again. It seems that I am beating the odds here between the Washburns I found and now my new Zager. What a well made and great sounding guitar. The demo on You-Tube is not a fluke or a special guitar made up for the occassion. Tis is the real deal!





<k.williamson700@btintrnet.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
Really by pure luck just scrolling through the net websites trying to find a guitar I could play easier without the finger pain.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There is no comparison with any other guitars I own or others I have tried in the past I currently own another 4 guitars and my new Zager Zad20e sunburst is by far the best , it is light to handle , it's is easier to play and nicely built and nice to look at bearing in mind I have only had my Zager a few days now and noticed the differences immediately .

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I think it has to be the playability , obviously because of it's design and the way it is built , but really all the parts are my favourite lysis just a perfect instrument.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
If we are talking US dollar I recon defiantly around the $1000 mark without a doubt.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is excellent , great help and guidance throughout your purchase and ready available to answer any questions you may have .

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would defiantly recommend this guitar to others just because of what you get for your money , the support and the chance to be able to play the guitar probably faster and easier than with any ordinary guitar, if it is your goal to play the guitar then this is your chance.

Additional comments:
I would like to add how happy I am with my new Zager Guitar , I used to always look out for a piece of memorabilia in a guitar ie a signed guitar or owned by some one famous , now I need look no further as I got it all in one package A New Guitar Not only Signed but also Built and Designed by Denny Zager himself a legendary guitarist performer , so now I have piece of memorabilia I can use and at a fraction of the price of any other signed instrument .

This guitar is so good,got to be the best guitar that I own now and I own Takamines,a Martin dreadnought D16, an Alverez and Ibanez and many smaller branded guitars.The sound looks and playability of the zad80ce is far better than these and in time should get better with the solid top.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
looks,sound,playability and build quality is very very good,remanisent of much more expensive guitars.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
As I live in the UK,I would say £1,200.00-£2.000.00.

What can I say,your customer service is second to none,Dennis is great and very helpful,l think you you have set a new benchmark in customer support which everybody else should look to acheive.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! Would recommended to anybody for ease of playing, build quality looks,sound but most of all great value for money.

Denny Zager builds great guitars that play,look and sound twice the price,world best customer service,can't thank these guys enough for making me a very happy guitar player,I will be buying from these guys again,what more can I say except Brilliant.

Very lively sound for any guitar but when you consider that it is a parlor size it is really impressive.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Sound and really is easier to play.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I have played similar sized guitars that retailed for close to $2,000 that are not even close to the sound and playability of my new Zager.

How would you rate customer support?
Best experience I ever hard buying somthing on line.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes sound and it just feels so good to play. Play for hours and hours without even realizing how much time has passed.

Additional comments:
I read reviews before that didnt seem real about Zager guitars. After having mine a few days I understand why. They really are as good as they say. Any bad things you seem about these guitars have to be coming from someone with an agenda. My Zager parlor is my new favorite and yes I own several of the big name guitars.





<derekshirreffs@hotmail.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
I browsed the available products on the Zager website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I currently own an apx700ii electro-acoustic and an apx1000mbl electro-acoustic. These guitars are the Yamaha slimline models with a body depth of 3 9/16 inches, I find the full depth body of dreadnought guitars too bulky and cumbersome. The ZAD20ceom has a similar body depth to my Yamahas (4 1/4 inches), so I find it very comfortable to play. The action on my Yamahas is lower than most guitar models and the string spacing is full size. This makes the Yamahas comfortable to play and reliable all the way down the neck. I have found the ZAD20ceom to be very similar in these respects and I feel right at home with this guitar. The main difference I have found is that the playability (ie ease of chord holding, tone and resonance) is noticeably superior on the ZAD20ceom.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The overall feel and playability.

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

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent. I have very seldom seen such a high level of professionalism, friendliness and courtesy.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes. This guitar is expertly made and set up, Mr Zager is a true craftsman.

It's the best guitar I've ever owned. (This one is one of your discounted models) P.S. I own a 25th Anniversary Taylor 814ce and it's an awesome guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Of course it plays great but, I would have to say that the mid range tonality and the over all voicing impresses me the most. Haven't plugged it in yet. Can't wait to check out the Aura / Fishman pickup system.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
The Taylor that I compared it to cost me $3,200.00 New and I would choose the ZAD900 over it.

How would you rate customer support?
So far, so good.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, because it's a great guitar at a great price.

How did you hear about this brand?
Watching Youtube videos of various artists I stumbled across a testimonial for Zager guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Best acoustic I've owned since I have never been willing to spend thousands of dollars on a Martin or Taylor. Now I have a quality guitar at a reasonable price.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's playability while maintaining a great sound. Conventional wisdom is to put heavy strings and raise the action to great great tone but only someone that has been playing for years can actually play such an instrument. The Zager guitar makes it possible for anyone to learn guitar on afine instrument.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
between $1200 and $2000

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent! Especially for an Internet Company. It's always better to do deal with a family owned business and not a corporation.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I certainly will. The affordability of a quality instrument is hard to find.

Additional comments:
The photos of Denny playing my guitar is great. It makes me feel like he puts pride in every instrument with his name on it. This is not the case at some guitar factories that put guitars out the door as fast as they can. I used to set up guitars at a well known guitar factory. There are new techs coming and going all the time. It's just a job to them. They don't really love what they are doing.





<bcurran@airproductsinc.com>

How did you hear about this brand?
I stumbled upon it in an internet AD but I was very skeptical.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I must say that it is very easy for me to say that my ZAD20CE AURA is hands down the best guitar I have ever played. My son has a $3,200 Taylor and the ZAGER plays better and sounds every bit as good. My Martin DX-1 sounded good played nice but the ZAGER is beyond what I thought I would receive via internet, sight unseen, never played and yet WOW

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Because I am getting older and my hands tire easily, I found the ZAGER seems to almost play itself it is almost effort free

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$3,000+++ the quality of the instrument, the sound, the feel and especially the looks. It looks like an expensive guitar. I am so astonished the ZAGER does not have the name recognition the other have like Gibson, Martin, Taylor and such

How would you rate customer support?
I have been in sales for about 20 of my last 55 years working and I work with all kinds of companies. Dennis Zager Jr. was on top of every question I put to him. Never did he give me the feeling he was frustrated by my constant requests. No only did he get right back to me very quickly, but he made every effort to make sure that my purchase was one that I wanted not what he had to sell. He put together a package that was perfect and boy am I happy I kept asking different questions. Thanks Dennis

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I have already called several people about this ZAGER guitar because I want everyone to see and hear and play this instrument. They will be blown away.

Additional comments:
Even though I requested special options I thought the ZAGER guitar would be weeks away before I would have a chance to see and play it. However, Dennis jumped right on it and got it delivered in 4 days.

I love it as much as my 25 year old Taylor 800 dreadnought (rosewood). Don't often go into music stores to check out guitars, but very few compare to its craftsmanship and beautiful voice.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The two things I mentioned above, the craftsmanship and the tone. I would also add that its playability is a real plus for my arthritis. So great to sit for hours and play and not feel stiff and soreness afterward.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would say at least $1200

How would you rate customer support?
The best. Denny is so professional and helpful .. and prompt!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I do all the time. You can't beat its quality and affordability, and the customer service is a real feather in Denny's cap!

Additional comments:
I've had my Zager for 8 years now and am still loving it. I picked it up the other day after not playing for months and it still looks brand new. Such a pleasure to observe the detail, beautiful wood, inlays and finish. Denny obviously loves his work and puts something of himself into every instrument.

I was on line looking at reviews for a good high end guitar when I came across the Zager guitar site .

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've owned many guitars in the last 20 years but this Zager 900CE guitar outperforms by far anyone of them I've ever owned or tried out in a music store. I recently was looking and tried out a Martin limited edition ,it's sound and playability was no match for my 900CE ,and it was twice the price. I was really glad I waited and purchased my Zager 900CE.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I really must say the is playability is right up there ,this guitar is very lightweight and has a stunning look , it has a ringing sound of quality that fills the room.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
This Guitar the 900CE , with the quality woods and bindings and programmable aurora pick up would be easily be over $4200 in a music store .

How would you rate customer support?
I was really content , every time I asked a question or had a concern about my order it was addressed with the highest regard and very prompt. Dennis and Whitney were very professional and you could tell product quality and client satisfaction is there main goal.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for top quality guitar in playability / sound / looks /workmanship/ price and client support . Also this Guitar was equipped with the best programmable aurora pick up and the sound is second to none , This is not something you find anywhere .

Additional comments:
Just to add the guitar came in a beautiful molded case equipped with a built -in humidifier , a nice padded Zager guitar strap , spare strings ,a nice Zager Tee Shirt , guitar pick , picture Of Denny with my 900CE guitar and documentation .

I heard of rumors that there was a guitar that was only available on line and that it was a great guitar so I googled it and found ZAGER.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I love this guitar. When compared to my old guitar: first, its easier to play. Its amazing how much easier it is to operate. No painful fingers and its easy to hit tuff cords. Second, it sounds so clean, clear, and deep. I just played a 54 Gibson full box acoustic and I say this 80 is just as nice and easier to play. I have played Martins and Taylors and this thing is better for both sound and playability.

Absolutely... Great price for a guitar that is perfect for a player like me. I like the ease of play, sounds great, stays in tune, built in tuner is awesome and looks fantastic!!

Additional comments:
I am so glad I stumbled onto the Zager website. I was contemplating buying a new acoustic and really had reservations. I did not want to break the bank on the purchase but I am very picky about the sound quality, tuning, feel and playability of a guitar. This was quite a find. This guitar will be the last acoustic I'll ever need. It's like you made this guitar just for me! Thanks

I can not compare it to more expensive guitars as I have never played them, but it is miles above my current guitar, Epiphone by Gibson.

The sound is smooth and rich. I also love that it is easier to play, and certain chords that I struggled with are easier now with my Zager guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I tried Martin's, Taylor, Gibson, Alvarez, Breedlove etc and althought they are solid instruments and sound good, Zager guitar sound was more richer and fuller without that muted sound as the others. A big factor was the playability on the neck and frets which led to a flowing of notes from the guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The entire guitar is my favorite part. I would say the setup and playability of the Zager guitar.

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

Dennis was GREAT ! He attention to detail and vey prompt replies back to me me were of 1st rate CUSTOMER service.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes I would recommend this to everyone whether you a new acoustic player or experienced guitar player.

Additional comments:
I just received my new ZAD20E Sunburst Guitar. To be honest I was skeptical at first at buying a Zager. The name to me is unknown and the reviews are mixed publicly. But one thing stuck with me was the playability factor that I heard and read about for Zager guitar countless times. Learning acoustic guitar can be very painful on your fingers and difficult to play cleanly on the fretboard with chords etc. It can really inhibit your progress and over time kill your motivation to learn. The playability right out of the box when I received my guitar was SHOCKING !! Denny I was playing cleanly and without the effort as with other guitars! At that moment I knew that I made the right decision in trusting you with my guitar learning. I was able to play chords with ease due to your setup and my fingers didn't incur the pain from practicing for more than hour. My motivation has increased tenfold and I am already working on my first song. That how comfortable & confident Zager guitar's make you feel due to the quality of your work Denny. I am very impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the woods. The guitar is flawless and everyone who sees and hears the guitar is blow away and wants to play. I just direct them to you website. I want to Thank you for providing such a high quality guitar without the stigma of the high prices and poor customer service as with others. I would recommend your guitars which I do to anyone new or old player. Thanks so much Denny Warmest wishes Ernest

My Grandson read about it on the internet.

I'll know more after I play it for a while. I play a HD28 Martin, Alvarez Yari JY10, and a Carvin Acoust\elec. All these are really great guitars. My Martin is my main guitar because of it tone and playability even tho they all play great. My first impression of the Zager is good, but I'll know more after I play it for a few sessions.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Plays good, and is true all the way up the neck. Action is a little higher than I like but that can be adjusted.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'd say in the two to three thousand dollar range.

After researching guitars online for several months.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is a fantastic instrument. I put it through its paces for several hours over the last 2 days. Also, had a few friends try it out. The sound is bright with a warmth and depth that was surprising for a guitar in this price range. We compared it to a Martin D-16, a Taylor 201 and an old Gibson hummingbird. The sound was a lot like the Martin only a little richer. As far as playability...nothing compared. If you are looking for a really nice instrument without the really high price, I doubt you could do any better.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
What's not to like. Absolutely beautiful, plays like a dream and sounds great!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
No bull,my Martin set me back over a grand 10 years ago. This guitar feels, plays, looks and sounds like a $1200 guitar.

How would you rate customer support?
So far a 10 out of 10. Fast responses to questions, all kinds of extras thrown in and 30 day money back guarantee. It doesn't get any better than that.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Already have a couple of friends drooling over it. Highly recommended! If you want a guitar that plays great, sounds good and looks fantastic YET still leaves you enough coin to buy a decent electric, thus is your guitar. If you like to overpay and end up with something not quite as playable...go get one the high ticket brand names.

Additional comments:
I have owned and played guitars for over 40 years! I know a great guitar when I play it. THIS is a GREAT guitar! Save some serious coin and pick one up. You will NOT be disappointed!

It looks and plays a lot like my old Taylor cutaway except the tone is brighter and it's easier to play.

Probably playability. It plays as easily on the twelfth fret as the first. It looks good, sounds good, and plays great.

It's shaped like my old Taylor cutaway, and it's got a similar feel, but it plays easier and the tone is brighter. Friends remarked last night that it had "more of a presence" than the Taylor. (Don't get me wrong. I still love my Taylor, which has been a reliable workhorse guitar for almost fifteen years.)

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Probably its playability. It plays as easily on the twelfth fret as the first. It sounds great unplugged or amplified. Its tone is superb and it's an ideal fit for the way I play.

How did you hear about this brand?
Read some reviews on internet

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've owned an entry level Yamaha, which I sold and bought an entry level Martin (about $600 in 2003). The ZAD20 is by far the easiest to play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Do I have to choose just one? Ease of playing, well balanced sound, sealed smooth operating tuners,quality workmanship,the scaling of the frets is very accurate.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I've handed it to fellow guitar players and they thought it would sell in the $800 to $1000 range. I bought mine in 2004 for $399 (plus $100 for the case, well worth it!

How would you rate customer support?
You call them they support you. That's how I was able to retire. :) Seriously though, very prompt. I recently needed to add a strap button on the neck. I sent them an email asking what they recommended and they sent me one and a new set of strings free of charge!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! When I bought this guitar, I did so because of the EZ-play feature. My old Yamaha wasn't easy to play. The entry level Martin was better, but not as good as the Zager. When you're learning you don't want an instrument that makes learning more difficult. With the Zager I've found the guitar is NOT my limiting factor, and as I progress, I find I appreciate this instrument more and more. It's one of those rare items you buy that you're pleased with every time you use it!

Additional comments:
As I review this, my ZAD20 has passed it's 10th birthday. I played it a little when I first got it, but when I retired 3 years ago, I started playing it about 1.5-2 hours a day. It's a great guitar. Pretty much the only thing I need to do with it is adjust the neck when heating season starts and ends (wrench included) change the strings, tune it and play! It has held up wonderfully! The tuners are silky smooth and have never slipped. The action is amazing as is the sound. The ONLY thing I sometimes wish I had was one of the cutaway models like the ZAD20CE to ease getting to the frets past 12. The string to fretboard distance at the nut end of the neck is about 3mm. At the bridge end about 4.5mm. This is on a 10 year old guitar! (I think it sounds mellower now than when it was new too!) Also the in home try out can't be beat!

How did you hear about this brand?
I was looking for a guitar and shopping brick and mortar stores plus Internet when I saw an ad for zager guitars on YouTube. I was looking and playing guitars like gibson, Taylor and martin. I knew what I wanted but was disappointed by the playability of the instruments I found. They played about like the cheaper type I already owned. I saw the ad and began to investigate because I was skeptical about the hype. I did not believe any of it. I even went so far as to contact the better business Bureau to find out about zager complaints. I was surprised by the research in that I could find few negative points. I decided to take a chance, after all it had a money back guarantee.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar can be described in one word. Awsome. Better than any guitar I played in the stores. Better than $2000 and $3000 dollar guitars I was playing in the stores. These were the back room stock, not the rack guitars out front.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The finish on this guitar was beautiful. The action and playability out of the box was astounding. The upgrade case was an unexpected benefit.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I was fully prepared to send this guitar back if not satisfied and rush out to purchase a 2 to 3 thousand dollar guitar. I am fully satisfied and love my zager. It is a beautiful instrument and worth more to me than my investment.

How would you rate customer support?
The support by the zager staff has been amazing. Dennis answered all my questions and I know there were many. They responded without high pressure and walked me thru the process and delivered more than was promised. The staff of zager is first rate.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Not only would I recommend zager I am already planning another purchase of one of their superior instruments.

I saw a review on the web and decided to go to the Zager website and investigate. The more I read the more intrigued I became. I'm an older fella who has played as an amateur for years and was looking for something that would be easier to play. It was getting harder to hit bar chords.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have Gibson's, Fenders, a Gurian, and a few others and, while I still enjoy playing them all, this Zanger sounds fantastic, is easy to play and has become my everyday go to guitar. I have enough guitars now, trying new ones in stores has just become a fun day. I haven't found one that compares to the Zanger.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The sound, the ease of playing and the looks. Very high quality of workmanship and materials.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1200.00 plus.

How would you rate customer support?
Like family. Every time I have had a question, I get a prompt and helpful response. I usually ask about accessories because I have had no problems with the guitar.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would recommend this guitar company to anyone who wants a high quality guitar that sounds great and is easy and fun to play. I have a couple of professional friends and they are always wanting to borrow the guitar...no way!

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The quality and fit and finish is above comparable models that cost hundreds more! Sound is equal to or better than more expensive brands! Now the good part, the Zager is easier to play.!!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Ease of playing for extended time periods! I mostly played electric but now I have two Zager acoustics and find them easier to play than other brands. My other acoustic would tire my fingers but my Zager is much easier on the fingers...

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
1600-1800$

How would you rate customer support?
My personal experience with Dennis Zager was perfect. He truly cares about the satisfaction of his customers and the quality of his instruments! Another great reason to buy a Zager acoustic.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Definitely would!!! I like the OM size, it's a tad smaller with no compromise in tone or volume. It's an easy transition from electric to a OM size acoustic. I used to dread playing a dreadnought... now I love to play my OM 80 CE

Additional comments:
I could have purchased any brand I wanted.... But I am so glad I chose Zager (for a second time). Zager truly cares for their customers and will see to their complete satisfaction. The quality, the sound, the easy play and the price... Why would you choose any other???

I am very happy with this guitar both in the construction of it and the way it plays. I feel that it is very comparable to much more expensive guitars and is very good value for the cost.

I like how it plays and especially the feel of the neck. The sound is also very full and well rounded. I also like the upgraded electronics package that is now being used.

I would estimate this guitar to be in the $1200.00 range and would easily compare to other makes in that range or even slightly higher.

I searched for an easier to play guitar on Google

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It is day and night. I am am beginner so I am not a pro by any means, but the Zager is so much more easier to practice on than my LX1 Martin. The quality of the Zager is so much more tan I expected and vs. other guitars the play ability and tone oz the Zager is unsurpassed.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The overall quality of the guitar is heirloom grade, it is just absolutely awesome. The customer service, the case, the guitar finish, quality materials and last but not least the tone. It sounds like a guitar should sound, deep rich tones and the ease of play is astonishing.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Double or triple what I paid for it, but I am glad that I did not.

How would you rate customer support?
10+ Delivery was not off the shelf which is OK for me as I want something that is not cookie cutter and I know work went into making this guitar.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely, 100% would. The quality and ease of play are better than anything I have seen in an instrument and the guitar is absolutely beautiful with a tone that really turns heads, you just cannot believe the richness of the tone from a Zager.

Cannot wait to buy another!

Model: zad80

How did you hear about this brand?
Online.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I purchased the Z80 to replace my Taylor 210ce. I had nothing but trouble with the Taylor from day 1. I was just learning to play and although the Taylor sounded great and looked beautiful I could never get it to tune to key easily. I took it to a guitar shop and had their set up guy work on it. It took him a week and he told me the neck was slightly warped at the 10th fret. I took it to the Taylor factory here in San Diego and they said their was nothing wrong with it. So for a year I practiced and practiced. I still couldn't play a bar chord past the third fret. I took it back to Taylor and they offered to set it up and check it out, for $135.00. When I got it back it was a little better but after 6 months it still would not tune up right and was difficult to play. Then I bought the Zager 80. Wow, what a difference. It is a beautiful guitar and very well made. Bar chords are very easy to play and it tunes up perfect. My wife who has perfect pitch always said I was slightly out of tune when playing the Taylor. But with the Zager the pitch was right on. I wife sang professionally for many years and I trust her ear. The workmanship on my Zager is impeccable. I love the high gloss finish and the Mother of pearl inlay around the sound hole and top. Even the back has some inlay work that looks great. I tired a few high end Matins and Taylors in the store and I honestly think my Zager is just as good, and easy to play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Besides the way the Zager looks and feels in the hand, the neck is my favorite. It is a little thinner from front to back and it seems flatter in the back of the neck making it easier to keep my thumb low and position my fingers straight down on the strings. Also I think the nut is slightly wider so my fingers have a little more room. I'm playing my chords much cleaner and more difficult chords are easier to play.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Just looking at it I would have to say about $3,000.00. It really looks expensive.

How would you rate customer support?
Before I purchased this guitar online. By the way, you can only buy this guitar online. Zager has cut out the middleman on their instruments and sell direct from the factory. This saved me a ton of money because I didn't have to pay the music stores 2.5% or higher, Mark Up. So you can't go to a music store and buy one. This sounds like a negative but it isn't. Zager has the best return policy in the guitar business. If you do not like it, send it back. And, Zager will even pay the return shipping cost for you. Before I purchased mine I E-mailed Dennis Zager four or five times with questions. He answered me every time. The day I purchased it I called in my order. The Zager people are wonderful to do business with. I only regret I didn't know about them sooner.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Heck Yes I would recommend this guitar to others. Why? 1. It is a quality built instrument. 2. It is much easier to play. 3. It looks great and expensive. 4. You simply cannot beat the price when you compare it against any other guitar.

There is no comparing my new Zager to anything else that I have owned or played. The Zager outplays them all.

Well I've not really needed any support since I got the guitar but when I was trying to decide which Zager to purchase I emailed Dennis jr about 20 times. Dennis jr. Is the best. He helped me with any questions I had and I had a lot of questions.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. This guitar is so well made and so easy to play. When I took this guitar out of the box I sat down and played for three hours. No pain or soreness in my fingers at all. The sound is just as good as aged Martins that I've played and this thing is brand new. When it gets a little age on it I don't think anything will compare to it on sound.

Additional comments:
Hi, I am "Max Twelve O Six" a singer/songwriter in the NYC area, and I just got my Zager guitar. I went on a search for a guitar about one year ago, I tired may, many guitars at stores around my area, most of these store here have pretty much all the top guitar anyone would want to play and I did tried them, I can say proudly that my Zager guitar by far outplays any of them, you would have to be crazy to not get one if you are on your search. One of the biggest reasons why I needed a new guitar, is because I have very bad tendonitis on both hands and arms, so I needed a guitar that I could play without aggravating my condition and I know I found it with my Zager.

Additional comments:
First off for me I don't buy guitars without playing them 1st, but when I saw the add on the internet pop up for your guitars I clicked on it because I never heard of them. When I watched the video testimonies I decided to take a shot at the Zad 20ce that you have on sale for $795. I received my guitar today and unpackaged and looked over the guitar and was amazed at the workmanship, I am a 30 year machinist that daily builds parts to blueprint, so I know how hard it is to manufacture things. I sat down and played it.This guitar is truly a piece of art. The tone and resonance is warm/ sharp and sweet and it does play easily just like one of my high-end electric guitars. The whole time I was playing it, something in the back of my mind was wrong though. When I was done playing the guitar and putting it back in its case then it hits me. This isn't the guitar I ordered, its the Zad80ce. So I go back to the box with the shipping instructions and confirm that the shipping label says Zad20ce. I pull out the shirt out of the bag and notice the black envelope with the post it note that says " You've been upgraded to an 80ce for free"! Dennis Jr. I sat back in my chair and was humbled. I want you to know how grateful I am and appreciative of your generosity. I play with a lot of musicians in bands and open mic nights and I can't wait to share this story with everyone and let them try this guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I was looking for a quality 3/4 guitar. This has great sound, appears to be crafted very well, and has a beautiful finish. The ones I tried at stores used laminated woods, didn't have as nice of a finish, and sounded "tinny" to my ear. This one sounds like I'm playing my regular size guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The size. It's easy to transport and easy to play. When my 9-year old grand-daughter visits, she can play it while I play the full size guitar. In the meantime it's become my "go to" guitar.

How did you hear about this brand?
I was looking for a quality guitar and watched several videos on YouTube; mainly on Taylors versus Martins. I saw several comparisons from accomplished players comparing these two to the zad900ce and decided to take a chance.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The sound quality was not as deep as my Epiphone...making me a little nervous. I read all the literature that you sent and noted that the guitar would get a deeper tone once the wood cured. When I first began playing it my fingers hurt (I have not played in a while)and I thought easy play? I next played a chord with a light finger touch and laughed out loud at the full rich sound with such a light touch. The playability is all that was promised.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
One cannot choose a single favorite. The beauty out-classes any guitar that I have seen and yes the playability; something that I have to remind my fingers that a hard press is not necessary.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$3,200 to $4200

How would you rate customer support?
Boy do I know about customer support! I ordered my guitar on January 30, 2014 and knew that it was backordered. I emailed Dennis and had an immediate reply with the anticipated delivery month. I emailed him several times in the interim and had a gracious reply each time. When the delivery month arrived I was notified that there would be a delay due to a non satisfactory delivery of materials. I considered canceling my order and purchasing a guitar from a local music store. Dennis gave me this opportunity and said that you would refund me at anytime. I decided to stay the course. I was told that the new delivery date would be the end of June and on the first week in July I had my guitar. Customer support...Great!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, the beauty, playability and cost versus lesser quality guitars costing an equal amount are reasons to order a Zager.

Additional comments:
My zad900ce arrived with an upgraded case, a years worth of strings and a very nice guitar strap. All due to the wait time. Now that is taking care of ones customers!

I have mostly just picked it up every once and a while and strummed along to songs or tried to figure out how to play something. This year I decided that (at the age of 59) it was time to do something that I always wanted to, really learn to play guitar. Once I started practicing on a regular basis, I felt myself not being able to put in as much time as I wanted, since my fingers we bothering me. Playing an electric guitar helped a bit, but my acoustic was not very comfortable to me. After about 20-30 minutes my fingers (not just my finger tips) were hurting. I started on my internet search for help. I tried finger exercising, bought finger exercising grips (which does help a bit), had the acoustic setup with the action as low as I could get it, but I either had to suck it up and work through the pain, or keep looking for a magic answer. Well, I think I found it. After doing a lot of research on the internet, I thought I would try a Zager guitar. They seem to have a great loyal following, although they also seem to have a lot of haters, which made me shy away at first. Most of the negative reviews I saw were from many years ago, so I thought I would give one a try. I was on contact with Dennis Zager Jr, who answered any and ALL questions I had before I made the purchase, not only quickly but honestly. Since Zager has such a great return policy, I figured I had nothing to lose, but the pain in my fingers. I ordered a ZAD20 Sunburst from their discount section. Great(er) price and almost perfect (once I received it I had a hard time finding the small cosmetic defect). Due to a UPS screw-up, I had to go pick up the guitar at the UPS office. The UPS employee at the counter was also a guitar player and had never heard of Zager guitars. I told him a brief history, of course he had known Zager and Evans great hit, “In the Year 2525”. I was excited to see the guitar and play it, so I opened it in the UPS Office. I also purchased a case, don’t buy a guitar without one, and when I opened it and tuned it up, I knew it was a good decision. It sounded Great!! Of course the UPS guy wanted to give it a whirl, which I let him and it sounded even better with someone who really knew how to play. I unfortunately had to go back to work, but when I got home I was like a kid with a new toy. When my wife called me for dinner, I realized I had been playing for well over an hour pain free. I thought that maybe it was the “new toy” adrenaline, but so far I have not run into any significant pain issues. First, any fingertip pain is gone. The amount of pressure required, is so much less than my other guitar. I guess the pressure I was exerting on my other guitar was causing my joints to hurt, but that pain is minimal know. I have no problem going an hour or 2 comfortably. Another first happened. My wife actually knew what songs I was playing without me telling her. My

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The neck fits my hand better and the string height makes it easier to make chords without as much pressure. The strings themselves are to me smoother and feel better on my finger tips.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
First I love the look but then comes the sweet sound...

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I figure in the 1200 range as some others I have looked at but they did not play as well.

To this date the customer support has been outstanding...Every question I have asked has been answered very promptly and answered in a way that is easy for a beginner like me to understand...

How did you hear about this brand?
I found Zager on line looking for guitars made in the US, and came across Zager. I knew about Zager & Evans back in the 60's with there killer hit in the year 2525, was a song heard across the world, but had no idea Denny was building guitars, so I had to check out the site and was very impressed with the looks and finish and sounds they put out.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have owned 28 guitars in my life time and had them from Gibsons, Yamaha, Fenders, Ovation, Harmony, Music man, Martins Mitchell's, Stella, & more, I still own 8 of my collection and 4 vintage which I love playing and sound great. When I received my Zad20E took it out of the case it was just beautiful, The Sunburst color is such a great finish and the smell of the Mahogany wood is very strong and fresh, Love it, I tuned it some from the long trip to AZ with the on board preamp tuner, the guitar sounded great played wonderfully up there with the very top of the line $3000.00 plus guitars that I previously own. The case has a beautiful black felt cushion perfectly cut to fit the guitar snug & Zager Logo on it which looks great also

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Well my favorite part of this Zad20E is the sound it puts out, from the very low end to the high end E & B strings just sing out, The on board Fishman 60 is one of the best that I have plugged in to an Amps and sounds great, On board tuning is quick and easy and very accurate tested it with my other tuners and right on pitch. The playability is very easy and the feel of the neck is just a perfect fit, easy and quick chord changes, just an all around great guitar to play for hours on end.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would have to rate my new Zad20E around the price range of about 1800.00 to 2200.00 dollar guitar

How would you rate customer support?
Customer service is right on and answered my emails with in minutes of any questions that I might have asked about the guitar before I even purchased it, that was a mind blower cause companies to day take days to reply if they do at all. Dennis was emailing me as soon as he received my email. That said a lot for me.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Oh I would most definitely recommend these guitars to any of my musician friends, this will not be my last ZAGER by far Planning on to purchase the 20 & 80 CE in the future to add to my collection of beauties

Additional comments:
I have been playing guitar for over 20 yrs and have played them all from low end to high end in the thousands, and this Zager is right up there, the looks the style just a beautiful finish, and of course the sound just awesome, The comfort of holding it is a perfect fit could play it for hrs and never get tired of playing it. My Thanks to Denny for a great design & Dennis for a great customer support and also can't beat the life time warranty for no additional money for insurance like on most guitars being purchased out there

I have an Ovation Ultra that from day one, needed the action lowered. The seller did not mention that, it was my first big dollar guitar so I was ignorant of guitar set ups. After years of not being able to play beyond the fourth fret, I had the action lowered. It plays better but I liken the frets to playing a cheese grater! Sound is dull. My new Zad20E is light years ahead in all aspects, playability, tone, Fishman 60 electronics package with tuner over all quality.

<gcomeaux@gci.net>

How did you hear about this brand?
Website. I had a Z-20 and when I was looking for a new guitar that was easier on my wrist, I went straight to Zager.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have had many acoustics. My favorite is a one-of-a-kind J-55 Gibson. The tone is rich and even across the strings, plays like butter. But the Z-80 is SO much easier to play, with a vibrant tone, rich sustain, and buttery fretboard.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Ease of play. I can practice for hours before my hand begins to hurt.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Maybe $2000.00. It's a nice guitar with quality binding and workmanship. Absent the Zager logo, I would have thought this to be a lower-end Martin D-35, on which is what it is obviously patterned. And, in truth, I, (like most people who AREN'T experts on acoustic guitars)can't really tell the difference between the two.

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent. There were a few hiccups regarding a case, but overall, you can't beat the customer service of the Zager family and the company.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely the best value for the money.

Additional comments:
I bought this guitar because I could only play my Gibson for a couple of hours and my thumb-wrist would hurt like a demon. (orthopedic problem) With the Z-80, I can play all day with minimal discomfort. These ARE the easiest playing guitars EVER!

It is a fantastic guitar. I have a cort and a Yamaha. This has superior sound and is easy to play. The quality of this guitar is above average.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I like the neck but also the top with the lovely abalone decoration around the sound hole. The Om size is just perfect for a female like me with smaller height. Also not being a youngster the lighter weight is a great advantage.. I would recommend this size to any woman.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would think this guitar would be up to $1200 level.

How would you rate customer support?
Could I give it 200 percent? Dennis was always polite, always prepared to go the extra mile. I sent many messages to him and he never got tired of answering my questions. Their guarantee is fantastic, you wont find anything better.

I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone. The high quality cases they sell are fabulous, better than any I have ever seen. Give Zager a try you wont regret it.

For a beginner guitar my Yamaha fg700s I thought was a pretty good guitar. It sounds good and plays well after having it professionally set up. However, it doesn't compare to the Zager in sound quality and appearance. It is truly a beautiful guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Actually, I like everything about it!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'd guess the price to be around $600 or $700.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is unbelievable! With the first guitar I got I didn't find the playability any better than my Yamaha. I explained this to Dennis and he sent me a second guitar with custom string spacing which makes this guitars playability now better than my Yamaha. This did not cost me anything additional and Dennis paid for the return and shipping of the new guitar.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! You can't go wrong. If you're not happy with the guitar they'll do their best to get it right. If they can't you get a full refund. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain as this really is a wonderful guitar.

Additional comments:
Just can't say enough about how great Dennis is with customer support. He responds quickly to emails and bends over backwards to make sure you're entirely happy with his guitar. Wish all companies operated this way.

I have only played nylon string guitars so this would be my first steel string. I knew there would be an adjustment period. After the first week I find it is getting much easier to play and I can do most songs that I do on my older guitar. It's not quite up to my old guitar yet but I know it will be there soon. The sound it produces exceeds that on my old guitars.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
A beautiful instrument. I like everything about it, especially the built in tuner. Really sounds great when plugged in to my amp.

I came upon the Zager EZ-Play guitar website through an ad in YouTube videos while I was searching for the strumming pattern for a Bob Seger song "Night Moves". So I checked out the Zager site looking at the different guitars that are offered and I was amazed at the low price they were being offered for.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have been looking for a while to replace a Fender T-Bucket 300CE Acoustic-electric that I had purchased from the Guitar Center about 2 years ago. The Fender's bridge was pulling away from the top and created bubbles in the finish. The Fender had a harsh tone to it whether plugged into my amplifier or not. I have another Fender which is acoustic only that is one of those that I caught at Costco. The other guitars that I owned where problems with the neck cracking around the top guitar body.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
If I had to identify a favorite part about this guitar it would be everything that Denny talked about in his videos that separates his guitars from the rest. As I was checking out the different guitars I reviewed the various video that you, Denny, provided demonstrating your guitars. Denny, you held my attention into the craftsmanship you put in your design for an easy playing guitar that was comparable to the top end brand guitars; a wider string spacing to better play chords, lower string height to the fret, and a custom neck all of which you said makes for a better and easy playable guitar. Not to mention the affordability of your custom guitars. These aspects of your guitar genuinely had me sold.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
To tell you the truth, I would have expected this guitar to be in the price range of those Taylors or Martins guitars that I glaze upon in the music stores ranging from $1,600 to $2,200. Way out of my price range for a beginner/amateur.

How would you rate customer support?
Three things: 1st) I received my ZAD20E today (05-12-14) and it really looks beautiful. I handled it like a new born baby while unpacking it. The quality of the sound after some minor tuning is truly amazing, it sounded like those Taylors' that I fumble around with in the music store. 2nd) As I was being awe struck by its beauty and sound, I noticed that on the backside of the neck joint that it had a strap peg, which I forgot to mention about installing when I ordered my ZAD20E. I don't how you did it, but Thanks to you Dennis & your father for the heads-up by adding the strap peg after I had emailed you about it (after I received my UPS notification of shipment). 3rd) After playing a bit on my ZAD20E I went to check my mail and sure enough was your package Dennis (as you had promised) with a leather strap and strap peg hardware that you said you would send me for me or a guitar technician to install. Kudos to Zager guitars'!!!!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I definitely would recommend this guitar to others. I am truly counting on Denny's word about his guitars being EZ-Play. I'm looking forward to improving my skills as a beginner Denny with your EZ-Play guitar. I've knocked around through the years with simple chord progressions, but since the passing of my wife, I begun taking lessons. Somewhere through the years someone told me that with acoustic guitars you have to press harder on the strings. So that’s what I’ve been doing, which makes practicing very hard due to my fingers tips getting really sore to the point where I have put an ice pack on them. Nevertheless, after starting guitar lessons I’ve been informed that’s not the case with all acoustic guitars. But old habits are hard to break. Therefore, in order to practice more often I'm trying to avoid that by using more finesse with my fingers. So far the feel of the Zager Custom Lights strings (by Martin) are very smooth & soft.

Additional comments:
As part of the Zager EZ-Play Guitar package, I want to thank you Denny for the extra set of strings, picks and the Zager craftsmanship you have personally put in your guitars. I love my new t-shirt. And thank you Dennis for your prompt answers to all of my questions and concerns. Kudos to Zager EZ-Play Guitars!!!!

As a consumer, I value the following things the most: quality, value for my dollar, and excellent customer service. As a new customer of Zager guitars (www.zagerguitar.com) I got the first two items above. If I said they gave excellent customer service, however, that would not be accurate. The word 'excellent' is not strong enough. Dennis Zager, Jr., and everyone in the company gave me 'superlative' customer service. They quickly answered all my questions, even the tedious "newby" ones. I asked them to recommend a guitar strap, and they sent be a beautiful all-leather strap, a strap button kit, and a new set of strings without asking for any remuneration. I am a professional entertainer (magician, not a musician) and I've had to deal with all kinds of customer service. Nobody, in my extensive 40-year experience as a consumer, comes close to the incredible customer service of the Zager Guitar Company. Honestly!

The ZAD20E compares most favorably to any guitar that I have picked up. My last guitar, an old Gretch, played so stiff that it was brutal on my hand. The setup on the ZAD20E is what sets this guitar apart from an off the shelf model.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The setup is great for beginners and I believe anyone picking up this guitar to play it would be happy with it as it came. Nothing to tweek on fix on this guitar.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would expect a price tag of $1,00 to 1,200 if I bought this guitar in a brick and mortar store.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
To compare an entry level guitar to the ZAD20(e), is similar to the difference in a vending machine cup of instant coffee to fresh brewed. I own a Yamaha (F310) that was given to me, which was the best acoustic I had ever owned (and I recommend them if you cannot afford a Zager). However, with that said, the Yamaha was only good to a point where the chords (especially bar chords) became more difficult to learn. The playability, though it was as good as any one I had played up to $600, began to impede my learning. The Zager ZAD20, as set up by Denny, just took the shackles off.

Answering the question, “what’s your favorite part of this guitar" is like answering 'what’s your favorite song of all time?’ I like every aspect of this. I thought at first, before I purchased it, I hope I like something enough to not send it back. Once I opened the case and saw it, pulled it out and played it, that’s all I needed. Then I looked at it carefully and found more than enough reasons to say “Ahhh, no remorse whatsoever”. That was my biggest fear, wishing I had looked around more (even though it had taken me two years already). Save yourself some time, buy a Zager.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Pricing this guitar with all the window shopping and hands on I have done to this point, would lend me to price it at $1,000.00. I was originally after a Martin, because it said Martin. There was one Martin that did play nicely at $600.00, but it wasn’t that much better than the guitar I already had. The Gibson Song Writer was flat out over priced, but sounded and played quite well in comparison to a Taylor, another brand with a little too much hype. The Zager has the sound of these big names, but plays better and is a fraction of the cost.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is superb. Dennis is very personable and quite frank with answers to very direct questions. I had read so many positive reviews, I looked for negative ones. Of the very few I found, a couple remarks concerned me a little. Once Denny answered my list, I could see where someone had taken a few liberties, added a little imagination and beefed them up. To the one intellectual that wrote “Buy an Esteban” all I can say is “Dude, grow a brain”. Oh yeah, back to the question, customer support is awesome!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would (and will) absolutely recommend to anyone looking to upgrade or (especially) when starting out, to buy a Zager. I taught myself how to grab sounds from chords on strings that sat .200" over the 12th fret, long before YouTube was conceieved. That was hard learning and few people in my life could teach me anything about songs. If you have someone that can help you, or if you have the grit to go it alone, you will save a lot of time (and some pain) if you go with a Zager EZ-Play. Scouts Honor.

Additional comments:
In summary, when it comes to making a single decision based on a sea of opportunities, I dread remorse, which is when the right one comes along right after you say ‘Final answer”. I am completely satisfied, remorse free and even looking forward to life a little more, with this guitar. Also, I try to write for everyones enjoyment, so if I made errors along the way, picky people can be happy too.

Zager EZ-Play ZAD50 OM Size Acoustic



Model: zad50om

How did you hear about this brand?
I teach Guitar and one of my students bought one. So I did some research on the internet to find out more.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is not an easy question, because as we know, each guitar has it's own personality and sound. Over the years I have played many average and great acoustics. For some reason, and in my opinion, this Zager ZAD20-OM has no equal. It has such a rich but bright sound. And for the price, I do not have to worry about it like I would a vintage instrument.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The sound is outstanding! It has such a robust, rich, and even sound. I even emailed Dennis Zager and asked him how is it possible this thing sounds so good. Is it the strings ? or the guitar ? Obviously, it is the combination of the two. The other feature that truly won me over was it's orchestra size. It fits me perfectly, not oversize when I'm sitting, and not too small like a 3/4 scale. This guitar hands down gets the most complements from my students and friends for it's rich but bright sound.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Between $200 and $700 street price. I would think retail $1000 or more.

How would you rate customer support?
Unbelieveably accommodating for direct and non-direct customers!! I mean this in the true sense. Dennis will quickly get back to you, offer alternatives, string suggestions, and in addition will send you free strings to try even on non-Zager acoustics. The Zager company truly has the customer and their needs as their first priority. I did not buy my ZAD20-OM direct from Zager, and it made no difference, as they still helped me.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely, as it is in a class of it's own. The sound is "Martin-ish", but with a Gibson richness. The overall quality of the guitar is outstanding.

Additional comments:
I purchased my ZAD20-OM used. When I received it, there was a minor string buzz. This was due to the change in climate as I purchased it from a Easter state and I live in California. The buzz was quickly fixed, but if I had to do this again, I would purchase the guitar new from Zager direct. As they would know how to compensate for changes in climate, etc. And they really take care of their customers.

How did you hear about this brand?
I heard a friend talking about this guitar that he saw on EBAY that really interested him. It was a Zad20

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have several guitars in my collection, and it ranks with the best of them.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I love the brightness of the guitar...the finish of the guitar...the feel of the guitar...I LOVE THE GUITAR !

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I've bought some pretty expensive guitars in the past...and of course it's a concern how much an item costs, but I've always believed that you get what you pay for. This guitar is definitely worth more than the price paid.

How would you rate customer support?
Your customer support at Zager is outstanding. Each time that I've made contact with the company, I've received a very prompt and courteous reply.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I definitely like the guitar, and I would recommend it to other people. Like you know, there are people that are "brand-conscious" and won't find any brand to their liking if it's not the one that they think you should own. I kind of think it's like a kid that says he doesn't like broccoli even though he's never tried it. I think that people make their own negative decisions prematurely about some things, rather than experiencing it and then making an educated decision. I can truly say that Zager would truly surprise guitar players if they would try it.

Additional comments:
Thanks for all of the help you've given me in making my decision to purchase my zad80 !!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The light touch required to play. It's much easier on the old fingers.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
From what I've seen in music stores I would estimate around one thousand dollars minimum.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is the very best. See additional comments below.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes. I'm in Florida for the winter and when I get home I'm going to show it around to my friends.The sound and quality will be all that is required.

Additional comments:
When I ordered my guitar I wanted a 20E Sunburst but there were none in stock.I received an email from Dennis Jr. stating that they had a 20 Sunburst and a 20E natural. I ordered the sunburst and it was sent the next day.Two days before I was to receive my guitar I realized that it was not a 20E (senior moment)which I really wanted. I emailed Dennis Jr. asking him if I could return the Sunburst 20 and purchase the 20E natural instead.I was willing to pay the shipping for both guitars as it was my mistake. I received an email saying that the price difference for the 20E was one hundred dollars which I paid right away. My new guitar was shipped right away and they paid for the freight for both guitars. I have my own business and have been dealing with a lot of Companies in the past years and I can't think of a single one that would offer the service that I received from Zager Guitars. I was not promised anything from Zager Guitar for these comments, it's just how it happened.

How did you hear about this brand?
Just doing some research online, and found this company. I liked the way they spoke about the quality of the product, and how it was easy to play. Meaning, it wasn't going to hurt my fingers, because of the way they design it.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I purchased a cheap guitar online about 2 months ago, and didn't like it at all due to the fact that it was really hard to play and hurt my fingers. This is actually my first guitar. It's comfortable and feels great. I have no idea how to play yet, but I absolutely love it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Everything!!! It looks absolutely amazing, sounds great, they (Zager) upgraded the tuner, and it feel comfortable for me. I couldn't be more pleased. When I opened the box and saw how beautiful it was, it was blown away.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would have expected this guitar to cost a lot of money. Just from the price I saw in shopping around with this quality. These guys do amazing work for half the price.

How would you rate customer support?
Dennis Jr. was always in touch and would response almost immediately to any questions that I had about the guitar. They upgraded my tuner, and added the strap for me at no extra charge. I want to scream for the mountain tops how happy I am. Really, these guys are doing something special.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Most definitely! From the beginning, everything went smooth, and this guitar is off the chart. I am so proud to have the ZAD20E as my first guitar. I love it!!!!

Additional comments:
I felt like a little kid at Christmas opening the present that I had been wishing for all year. Now I am doing the online lessons that are on their website, and hopefully soon I will be up and running and playing like a champ. Simply put, I'm thrilled!!!!

zad20esunburst
Zager EZ-Play ZAD20E Acoustic Electric Vintage Sunburst


<topdog55@comcast.net>
Model: zad20esunburst

How did you hear about this brand?
I`ve never heard of Zager guitars, but since I subscribe to several guitar sites online, I received an email with a link to the Zager website. I find it amazing that I was practicing for many hours a day on my Fender or Ibanez acoustic, and complaining about how sore my fingers were, then out of nowhere, I got an email about an ez play guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have 3 other acoustic guitars. One is my beloved Ovation which was a gift 30 years ago. It plays like butter and sounds great. It`s model number 1612. The only problem I have is the rounded back keeps slipping off my lap when I play. I`ve tried everything to stop this, but the only way to keep it from slipping is to use a strap all the time. My new Zager looks, plays and sounds just as wonderful as my Ovation, and of course, doesn`t slip off my lap. The action is nice and low, and the sound is rich and full. The finish is beautiful, and the electronics were upgraded to the Fishman 60 at no extra charge. The guitar with the original Fishman 10 was not in stock and the Zager`s didn`t want me to wait since I already paid for it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
If I were to pick just one favorite part about this guitar, it would have to be the setup right out of the beautiful case it was shipped in. The action and string height is perfect! It plays so easy (hence the name)and sounds full and rich. Usually, when a guitar has low action and a tad lighter string gauge, the sound suffers a bit and is not as bright. This guitar is absolutely sweet sounding and can be played loud or soft with no buzzing or tone loss whatsoever. The tuners, finish, and electronics are all quality as well, and this guitar sounds fantastic plugged in or not.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would gladly pay $1200.00 to $2,000.00 dollars for this guitar after I played it and saw for myself how comfortable and perfect it feels in your hands or on your lap. The finish is deep and not a single flaw anywhere. The stitched hard case is a steal even if I paid $120.00 dollars for it (which I didn`t). It was half that!

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is impeccable. Every time I emailed Danny, I received a response within the hour. To me, the service you get, and the professionalism to which I was given, is as important as the product itself. This is the first company I`ve dealt with, where I felt like I was the most important person in the world. When my particular guitar wasn`t in stock, I was offered the exact same one that had upgrades at no charge. I asked if they sold straps, and Danny graciously threw one in for free.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would highly recommend buying your next guitar from Zager. It`s kind of risky buying something like a guitar without actually playing it first for 20 minutes or so. Not only does it have to look like a quality product, but it has to feel and play like it`s part of you. The more comfortable and natural it feels, the better you will play. You can buy other guitars that are setup at the factory for general playing, but the setup on my Zager is like I paid extra to have it setup perfectly just for me. That`s because of Denny`s years of expertise and experience. He sets up and test plays every guitar before it`s shipped. I even have a picture that they sent to me, showing Denny with MY guitar in his hands being played and tested.

Additional comments:
Don`t be fooled by the negative things that people can say on the internet. Do your homework. Look at the guarantee and pride that company`s put into their product. Look at the customer service. Read and see for yourself all the satisfied (and some very well known people)are saying about the product. You can`t please every one. How can anyone offer a full, money back guarantee, including shipping, if you don`t like it, and stay in business? This decision is a no brainer.

surfing the web, trying to find a repair center for my Taylor 110, but I found you instead. Lucky me.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Its better than the Taylor Chinese 110. It plays almost as soft as my Cort M900. The sounds are better than any guitar I picked up and tested. This Company seems to care. Not like the Guitar Centers or other retailers. That means everything to me!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It plays and looks like one of those 3000 dollars Martins hanging on the wall in the Guitar Center. You know what? Its better.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
3000 dollars is a lot of money to a retired military guy. But I do know the price of this guitar and its worth a lot more to me.

Easy to play, wider spacing on strings, very full clear sound.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$2000 or more

How would you rate customer support?
Absolutely first rate, 5 star. They give immediate response and go out WAY of their way to fulfill your needs. You have access to the Zagers themselves!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
This guitar is excellent in every way. Great construction, beautiful finish, beautiful and smooth tuners, great full sound both acoustically and through the on-board Fishman preamp. Equally competent with both strumming and finger-style. Low action for fast finger-style and yet no buzz with hard strumming (when used with Zager strings).

Additional comments:
I have a friend that played every Martin D28 he could find all over Ohio before picking one out...he likes my ZAD80ED just as well. What a great confidence builder that you can return the guitar and Zager pays the shipping if you do not like it. Nothing to loose really.

I own 10 guitars, The #1 guitar is a Martin HD28. The ZAD20e is rated #2. Beautiful sound and easy to play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My favorite part of this guitar is the low action. I do a lot of finger picking so I like very low action. I adjusted the action in 2 minutes with no buzzing.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
In the past I've paid a lot more for lower quality guitars.

How would you rate customer support?
On a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, I rate the customer service 12. Try calling Martin or Taylor and see if you get imediate response like Zager. With those companies, you would have to wait till the year 2525, LOL.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would absolutely recommand this guitar for beginner or expert. I have been playing guitar for 20 years and have owned a lot of guitars and I have never experienced better customer service than with Zager Guitar.

If every company in the us gave the customer service of Zager guitar their would not be a dissatisfied customer anywhere. I emailed them sat morning thanking them, within an hour still sat morning I received a reply I am sure written by Dennis jr. I am extremely critical of customer service and believe in this gimmy world we live in it is a lost art.. if everyone had the confidence in their product as they do we would not rely on imports. To say I am impressed would be a shortfall. I am 53 yrs young and in my life have never received such personal service I am in awe.

I saw it on the internet and checked out the reviews, had very high reviews.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
my zager is awesome, my other guitar feels cheap, manufactured and has sound that is just not pleasing to the ear, like my zager. my zager has a sound that is like heaven, just sounds expensive in it self.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
my favorite part is I can play for 2 hours and no hurting hands, honestly, my old guitar I would play 20 min. and would have to quit because my hands were just pounding and very sore. not no more. playing guitar is just totally pleasing these days, no more pain.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would say like 1200 dollars or more. and the reason is, the sound and feel of the guitar is nothing but quality. honest. I am in fact buying another one, because I love the first one so much. I promise you, you will not regret buying one.

How would you rate customer support?
top notch. they always get back to you, in a quick and friendly manner. even though some of my questions might be a little stupid, they still always answer them,, just awesome people.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
yes I would, and the reason is no more pain playing the guitar, and you can get to the frets faster, so you can learn, and play easier. just a great great guitar. I would say compares to martin and taylor, and who can afford them.

I always tell my girlfriend,, never touch my zager guitar. it is my prized possession next to my bike.

Searching online and reading the many reviews on the same

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
For me it is the "creme de la creme" No comparison in any way to others I tried in any way....The quality of workmanship, tone and beauty is way above the frey of any out there as i see it.. I am so thankful i was led to my purchase of a Zager Guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It is so beautiful and the sound is such as it leads me to want to stick with learning more and more of each day...as a beginner on guitar everyone is telling me what a great sound and how well i am doing. Add to this, my fingers don't get sore and this is a great motivation to keep on learning. I am totally in love with my Zager guitar.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
most likely many times over what i paid. knowing what I know now I wouldn't sell mine for the price I paid...I'd have to say I just know what i've seen out there this one would sell for at least 1200 to 2,000.00 and I wouldn't sell mine for any price...

How would you rate customer support?
Above anything out there.....unbelievable really.....restores one's faith in the same..Zager is a company I am proud to be a part of....Competition coud learn a lot from them....they make you feel so good and are so prompt in answering any questions you may have. For me I am so thankful I was led their way. They are the greatest!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Being a customer and a proud owner of a Zager Guitar I cannot recommend enough for anyone out there considering a guitar to give Zager a try...They have the best trial time to see for yourself at no cost should you want to return the same. They take time to answer all your questions in record time within hours....The integrity of their workmanship, customer service and all is unbelievable. I've been a business owner for many years and can tell you straight up this company is truly dedicated to the highest standards of workmanship and customer satisfaction ever. If you haven't guessed yet..I am a very very satisfied customer and urge anyone out there to check them out for yourself..You will be truly amazed.

How did you hear about this brand?
Internet commercial. I always skip them but...something caught my eye and I am glad I took the time to watch and listen to Dennis.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It's the finest guitar I have ever owned or played. Best sound, best action and it is such a beautiful instrument to look at. I've played Martin's, Taylor's, Yamaha's, Takamine, etc...this is better than any one of those brands, in my opinion. Seriously.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Difficult question; it's looks, sound, playability. Everything is top notch. The tuning pegs are fantastic. They lock in and stay there. Best tuning pegs I've ever experienced. Changing the strings and cleaning/polishing it are so enjoyable, to me anyways.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
At least $1,200.00.

How would you rate customer support?
Second to none. Dennis, Dennis Jr and Jill all communicated with me, and very quickly. There was a unique shipping problem with my ZAD20E and it took almost 20 days to arrive. They did everything in their power to correct the situation. I can't ask for more than that. An external factor, that was absolutely no fault of Zager guitar co. Their customer support with me was awesome, and very much appreciated.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, and I have been since the day I picked it up. Every person who has played it loves it. I tell them the web page and company name, and explain they should seriously consider purchasing one of these guitars.

Additional comments:
My forte is playing drums. I'm a simple rhythm/campfire kind of guitarist. I don't practice leads, scales, arpeggios, solo type stuff, and that's fine with me. Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Zeppelin, Eagles...whatever. It's easy to play (basic chords), that stuff and it sounds so clear and pure on this Zager. I've had it since September 21st, 2013. I haven't played guitar for 12 years prior to buying this beauty. Guitar is simply a fun side thing for me to do and I have never enjoyed playing more than I am now. I had to wait a few months to submit a fair review on it. It's the best guitar I have ever played, and I hope to but a higher end Zager model in a year or two. My best wishes to all at Zager Co. Thanks so much for producing such an affordable, amazing instrument. Sincerely, Dwayne Robertson.

<pault@coreinternational.com>
Model: zad50ceom

How did you hear about this brand?
I actually found the Zager by accident while looking at some You Tubes of older singing groups which led me to a tube of "In the year...." which got me too Dennis Sr and Jr site. Had not heard of it before but very glad i did. Dennis Sr can be proud of his instruments and Denny Jr does a great on line marking job bot build brand.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have not played for many years and divested of the guitars i have had for lack of playing them - fine guitars should be played and not sit in a case. I have had a Martin (D28) and a Taylor (800 series if i recall). Both were quite expensive instruments. In my view, my 20CE plays and sounds equal to my ear so I am very very pleased given I'd set a budget to get something good under $1000.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I think Dennis Sr has great skill in construction of his instruments if mine is an example. It is finely finished and put together very well. It looks like a much more expensive instrument than what I paid. I also like the cutaway design (first time I've had onw). Also like the Fishman electronics, especially the tuner part - makes things real easy.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I told Dennis Jr when I advised him that my guitar had arrived that it looked and played like one that would be AT LEAST double in a retail setting - so that would be $1200 +

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent! Dennis Jr was terrific in answering all my questions and arranged shipment for me in a tight window (I am from Canada but had the guitar shipped ot a hotel I was staying at while on a golf vacation). It all worked out perfectly. And Dennis' responsiveness is next to none. Dennis do you sleep with you computer? (lol)

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! And I suspect this would be true for any of Denny's models given now having mine. I think the fact that the Wager company has gone direct is helpful to those, like me, wanting a fine guitar at a very good price by not paying for middlemen and retail markups. Nice job Wagers!

Additional comments:
Now that I've done business with Wager i would want to tell others that you can trust these folks. I was legitimately skeptical buying sight unseen. But I decided to give it a try as Dennis was very forthright in dealing with me. I am very pleased with the whole transaction. On doing some research before ordering, i did find, as is the case in the internet world, some negative comments. Baed on my experience, i find these comments quite unfair frankly and suggest they be ignored if you want a very nice quitar, well made, great sounding, for a reasonable price -- great value for the money. The only thing i am not sure about is the 'EZ play" aspect. My guitar plays just fine but my memory bank tells me that it may not be too different from my old guitars, both of which were professionally set up. I suspect this is a personal "feel" or judgement thing and there is an art to good set up and folks like different things. This is not a negative at all as I think anyone purchasing a Zager guitar will find the set up Denny offers quite acceptable (out of the box!!)

How did you hear about this brand?
I saw some ads on Facebook and was curious.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I would put my zad20 up against almost any Martin, Fender or Taylor for playability and tone. As far as price, there's no comparison. Zager wins hands down.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Playability, no doubt. This guitar is so easy to finger and barre and you can play for an hour without having deep ridges in your callous pads. It's a joy to pick up.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'd say a comparable guitar would cost at least $1200-$1200.

How would you rate customer support?
Dennis and the whole crew are great. They really care about you having a great experience with your custom instrument.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I'd recommend it in a heartbeat. If you want a quality instrument that you can play in your living room or on a stage without breaking the bank, Zager is your guitar choice.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Hands down the playability. I was a little skeptical but when I first picked it up and was able to play easily and cleanly things I played before but now I was having difficulty with, I was impressed.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
To me the question is not what would I pay, but what is it worth to have a guitar I look forward to picking up again.

How did you hear about this brand?
Originally, I ran across them on E-bay. But this purchase is number two for me. I liked my ZAD20 so much I decided to get an 80CE. Everyone who has played my ZAD20CE has told me how much they like the sound and playability.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have played many different guitars throughout my life. I personally own a Takemine EF-349 mahogany body guitar and a ZAD20CE. The 80CE is comparable in playability to the 20 CE but it has a little different tone quality. It's made of different woods so I would expect it to sound different. I love both my Zager guitars so it is difficult for me to put one against the other. When compared the 80CE to the Takemine, it has a much brighter sound, more strength overall in tone and yet is doesn't sacrifice depth in the lows. I believe this 80 CE will continue to grow in sound quality as if ages and settles in. I thoroughly enjoy playing it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I absolutely adore the finish and quality of construction.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would not be surprised to find this guitar with a $1200-$2000 range.

How would you rate customer support?
The customer support at Zager Guitars is second to none. I must share a short story to illustrate what I mean. Two weeks ago Sunday, my ZAD20CE was being played by a friend on stage at church. The guitar was accidentally dropped and struck a metal part of the stage on it's way to the floor. This resulted in splitting the head right through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd string tuners. It did not break, but it split t he wood. It also cracked the body adjacent to the neck. I was crushed when I saw it happen. I had no idea what I was going to do. So I sent Dennis Zager an e-mail on Sunday morning, asking what could be done. I had no reason to believe I would get a response the same day. I thought surely it would be Monday before I got a response. But within the hour. I received a response. Not only did I get a response, he checked his inventory to see if I could get a replacement guitar right away. THAT'S Customer service at it's best.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I have already recommended Zager Guitars to every guitarist I know. I will continue to do so as often I am able. I consider my Zager guitar to equivalent or better than many higher priced big named guitars out there. I believe in the personal touch that Dennis Zager gives every guitar before it is shipped.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've been playing small body (0 & 00) Martin guitars for fifty years. The Zager Parlor has a fuller, ringing sound, and the ease of play is remarkable. The craftsmanship is just as good if not superior to any Martin, Gibson, or Guild.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
For a body that measures between an 0 and 00, the sound is fantastic - and as big as a 000-18 or 28.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Not a dollar less than $1,720.00.

How would you rate customer support?
It's superb. It's a small, family run business, and they can't do enough for you. There's a personal connection immediately and I felt valued.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I recommend Zager guitars to anyone, including beginners, professionals, and especially older players like me who have mitigating factors like arthritis. When they say there's no string bite, they are absolutely accurate.

Additional comments:
When something seems too good to be true, it almost always is. But these guitars are even better than promised, with a fit and finish that's incomparable. I've made the "pilgrimage" to Nazareth, PA, to the Martin factory. Martin has been like a second religion for me - I do believe I've just converted!

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Well, I have had many old guitars, Martins, Breedloves, Larrivee's, Gibson's I've owned them all......HONESTLY, the Mahogany ZAD20E compares tonally with any of them. I'm not going to claim that it is better, but it is at least as good as any of them. The Zager treatment really does make it easier to play. The strings that come with Zager are a little lighter than I like and with the lighter gauge there is a reduced volume and the old E and B always seem a little out of tune which is true with any guitar that I've ever owned, but that is easily remedied by putting a set of 12-53' on. Tunes normally, much more projection with the heavier gauge. Now the funny thing is that even with the heavier gauge strings it is still easier to play. LOL, I love it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The TONE and projection.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Between 200.00 and $800.00

How would you rate customer support?
Couldn't be any better. Dennis Jr. right on top of things and is there to make you happy. Customer Service is quite remarkable.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Definitely YES! You get a guitar that sounds as good as the more expensive guitars, looks great and is easier to play than most out there.

Additional comments:
There is a lot of Zager bashing out on the internet. I wish people would grow up and stop that crap. Denny Zager offers something a little different than the norm and should be praised for it. Most other manufacturers do not set up their guitars and you have to spend extra money to get the setup. Some are satisfactory but Zager's are perfect.....I will attest that if they are not perfect it will be exchanged. I can make that statement because there was a problem with the first one that I had, I wrote Dennis Jr and he promptly sent me another guitar. He didn't feel that I should have ANY problems with a new guitar. He took care of it immediately.

A custom luthier and yahoo search of the guitar and the company.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My retained personal collection is of guitars appproximately 40-20 years old and matured. Therefore, a fresh guitar is not going to be what a really good mature guitar is going to be. At my age I don't consider buying a guitar as a competitor to a quality seasoned guitar and... in this case I purchased it as a gift to my son who plays very similar to the methods of Denny Zager and his philosophy. I think I picked a 'matched' pair in this purchase consideration.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The custom structural setup!!!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I've cheated a bit on this one before purchasing. I researched the 'major' established competitors and several custom shops for precisely this build less the custom setup. The customs with solid wood and or HPL sides and bottom were $1400-2000'ish, some with and some without the electronics. All of these were with A or lessor grade volume production woods. Gibson, Martin etc., all have models and like woods with the HPL sides and bottoms and their pricing runs from just under a 1K to upwards of $2000....all have some trade-off points between them. That being said, the Zager lineup is a reasonable BARGIN aside from the custom setup their guitars are built around.

How would you rate customer support?
The family character and customer support is straight from an era long past and missing from todays generations of the business world! I have NO reason(s) to believe that it goes well beyond purchasing and throughout the life of the company and the guitar. It seems to be rooted deep in their gene pool!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I certainly would recommend to anybody seeking and striving to improve their music skills or a go-around for any physiological problems they may encounter. That said, there is a large segement in the music world who would consider the Zager system as irrelevant to their playing style and perception of music from a stringed instrument so consideration of the Zager system is probably not in their sight...right now.

Additional comments:
Thanks Denny and the Zager family! Your guitar is going into the hands of an exceptional young man who shares most of your style and philosophy.

How did you hear about this brand?
I heard about these guitars quite by accident. I needed a case for my Martin 12string I bought locally. Zagers' were selling a Martin case on Ebay along with a t-shirt. I was the winning bidder but didnt know until I got the shirt and started investigating Zager guitars about the company. I was also surprised to learn that Danny Zager was the same Zager of Zager and Evans fame with the song "in the year 2525" I loved that song when I was in college. I kept seeing Zager "easy play" guitars being offered on Ebay so I started investigating them further. So, I bought my Zad20e along with a case and I love it. It is now my go to guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The looks are fantastic and the playability is effortless. I have a $3000.00 guitar that rarely gets played. And now I play my Zager almost exclusively.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My favorite part is the ease of playability. My hands and fingers are sore with arthritis so I makes playing chords or fingering notes so much easier. I spend more time playing now that I have my new Zager guitar.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would price this guitar in the $1200 to $2000 price range.

How would you rate customer support?
The Zager company bent over backwards to make me a satisfied customer. I think I sent around 10 or more emails one morning trying to make up my mind and each one was answered in a matter of minutes if not seconds. They let me put down a small down payment and told me they would hold the guitar and case indefinitely for me. However, I couldn't wait so paid the balance off within a month.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I have been chatting this guitar up to anyone and everyone. Those that play it are amazed especially when I tell them what it cost me because they all are thinking a much higher dollar amount.

Additional comments:
I now have two Zager t-shirts and one Zager guitar. I need to find a way to even that up.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely yes! I'd want any guitar player to know about the quality of the Zager guitar line.

Additional comments:
Although I'm not a pro player, I was an apprentice luthier back in the mid 70s in Toronto Canada. I learned what to look for in a quality guitar. Now that I'm semi-retired, and have a little more free time, I wanted to upgrade to a better practice guitar and I've definitely found it in the Zager product line. I've got a slower hand now, and I'm not a wannabe, but every time I see that cool hard shell Zager case, I want to open it up and play for another hour or two. I'm having fun relearning and improving technique, and I believe my ZAGER Parlor hog is making it easier. Thanks to Denny and the Zager family for their unique marketing of a high quality product at an outstanding price for all of us.

How did you hear about this brand?
I honestly don't recall. And I wish I did so I could say thank you.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have two Spanish-built Cordoba classical guitars, which really can't be compared to steel-stringed instruments. I also own a Martin Eric Clapton signature model and a Zager D-80. I bought the mahogany Travel to have something I can easily take on my many road trips. I didn't expect a deep-throated instrument equal to the two full-size guitars, and it doesn't have that tone. It's a physical impossibility. But it's a much higher-quality sound than I anticipated. I love it. It compares more than favorably with the Little Martin.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The fact that the fingering is so easy and the quality of the sound. I anticipated that the neck might be too narrow for my fingers, but it's fine.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
At least twice the $345 that I paid for it.

How would you rate customer support?
Nothing short of fantastic. I think Denny Zager lives at his computer just to be able to jump in with answers to emails as soon as they hit his screen.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. For all the reasons above.

Additional comments:
From my two-guitar experience, Zager guitars are a steal. The pricing structure puts a truly great guitar within everyone's budget. As an example of how good these instruments are, a friend of mine -- a professional guitar player of some renown -- was playing a gig a few blocks from my condo. He didn't have time to run home to pick up one of his own guitars, so he asked if he could borrow one of mine. I gave him the Clapton Martin and the Zager D-80. After playing both, he chose the Zager. I'm just sayin' ...

On the internet , sold my gibson gospel and was in the market for a new guitar to use at church with the praise team and just sitting at home with. Was hesident at first but since they offer to pay shipping both ways i figured i'd give them a shot.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Set up is much better than the gibson , the gospel always seemed to have a issue with the setups . All the 5-8 hundred dollars guitars are all made out of laminate , Tried a few just don't like the sound . This zager blows them away . And i have only had this guitar a few weeks .

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The neck and its ease of playing .

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
would probulary quess at 1800 to 2200 dollars

How would you rate customer support?
Wonderful , I sent them a e-mail to ask about discounted guitars and this is the one they came back to me with and the one that caught my eye, reduced the price by 200 dollars i think because of a few scratches you really can't see unless you look for them.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes in a minute , This guitar is just as good or better than my martin hd35 i sold many years ago.

Additional comments:
This is a wonderful guitar and i am sure will bring me many years of enjoyment . If you are looking for a guitar ,order one give them a try ,won't be disappointed. I 've owned gibsons and martins most of my life ,but i love this guitar .

Surfing the net for easy-to-play acoustic guitars for my seven year old granddaughter.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I do love my other guitar, but keep reaching for the Zager Parlor because it's so easy and fun to play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My Zager Parlor is fun and adorable, and I like the way she feels in my arms. Everyone admires the quality of workmanship and how beautiful she is. The sound and tone that this small-sized guitar produces is amazing. My favorite thin, though, is how easy she is to play.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Priceless to me. Someday I'll pass her on to my precious granddaughter.

Very courteous and helpful, beyond what I expected even after reading good reviews. I've spent hours on the website because it's so interesting and full of information.

Searching the internet and YouTube.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Highest quality guitar I've owned. My other guitar is an Epiphone Nova 295. It plays well but not as easy as the CE80. I've tried Martins, and assorted others at Guitar Center at prices from $200.00 to $3200.00. This guitar plays as well or better than most of them.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The ease of play is great. Also, the guitar is beautiful with nice appointments. Sound quality is fantastic and I've yet to try other string brands.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1200 to $2000

How would you rate customer support?
Best I've ever encountered. Dennis answered all my questions, was not hard sell and even sent me a front strap button free of charge. Also, I originally tried the Zad20 and felt I was simply trading dollars compared to my Epiphone. I sent it back free of charge and was credited my purchase price and shipping in a timely fashion. This experience caused me to try the CE80 which I will keep.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Already have because of quality and customer service.

Additional comments:
It can't hurt to give Zager a try. It's risk free and worth the investment.

How did you hear about this brand?
I was browsing E-bay and came across your site. My curiosity led me into wanting to know as much as I could find out about your guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have and have had many guitars throughout my life. I have owned Gibson, Fender, Martin, Yamaha, Condor, Carlos, Ovation and a whole slew of lessor named guitars. From the moment I took the guitar case out of the shipping box, I was impressed by how nice and well made the case is. Upon opening the case I was really surprised by how good looking the guitar is. However my biggest surprise was how great this guitar sounded. Having played for 60 years since I was 5 years old, I have never had a guitar that was perfect right out of the box. Until now. Every note on the entire neck was perfect pitch. Denny does an outstanding job of fine tuning and making sure that every aspect of the guitar is perfect. Thank you Denny.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Well, I love everything about this guitar, obviously. But my favorite thing is the ease of playing. My old arthritic hands have a hard time playing for more than 20 - 30 minutes with my other guitars. I have been able to play for hours on end with this guitar. I play many different styles but I really like finger picking i.e. Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel, Jerry Reed, Doc Watson etc. I am just blown away by the clarity, and sustain and how rich and warm the lows and mids are and how bright and clear the highs. Overall just one super fantastic guitar for the money.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Having purchased many guitars in my life, I know that half of the price of a guitar is just the name on the headstock. The music store has to mark up the price big time just to keep their doors open. So, an in store price for this quality would probably be $1595.00 to $2295.00 plus tax. Thanks to the Zager Factory for allowing us to purchase direct. What a huge savings over retail music stores.

How would you rate customer support?
I have not needed to use the customer support, However, KUDOS to Dennis Jr. for his quick and honest answers to all of my many questions.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Simply, Price, Quality. This model compares to any Martin, Gibson, Ovation, Guild, that I have ever played.

How did you hear about this brand?
I had read about Zager Guitars in a magazine and found them on the Internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I bought an Aria acoustic about 35 years ago, but never really learned to play it. I have a relatively small hand and the Aria frustrated me to the point it sat in my closet for years. I was interested in the Zager as it was described as easy to play. I love the feel of the Zager Parlor, and it fits my hands well.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It feels very easy to play. I love the position of the strings.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
200.00-600.00

How would you rate customer support?
In a word, Incredible. Every email sent is responded to within minutes. Denny helped me decide which guitar best fit my needs.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. The quality and finish of this instrument is A+. It is very easy to play even for me, a beginner.

Additional comments:
A little story about this purchase. I will be. 61 April 1 and my wife asked what I wanted for my birthday. I told her a guitar. She told me to go find one. Enter Denny Zager. I sent him an email inquiry asking first was I too old to learn. I have not picked up a guitar in over 30 years. He coached me on what he though would be the best instrument to learn with and even found a brand new Parlor in their scratch and dent area. Long story short, I received the guitar within a week of ordering it and I love it.. I have a relatively small hand and it fits it perfectly. Thanks Denny for your help and I look forward to my first set of lessons. Steve.

Model: travelsizemahogany

How did you hear about this brand?
Internet

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It is comparable with low end Epiphones and Martins. The finish is done well but not over the top. The Grover tuners are not high end but work very "grover tuner" well. I own a few guitars that are set up by a local well-known luthier and the Zager plays as well if not better than the current setup I have.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The back radius of the neck and the taper fits my hand. It plays well right out of the box. Nice quality fitted case.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Honestly about what I paid for it with the case...around $420. It's good value for the money.

How would you rate customer support?
Support is outstanding. I don't think it will change

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes. Get past the advertising needed to get website traffic and try one...you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal off the shelf or as conveniently. IF I wanted to send it back I don't think there would be any questions asked. Dennis Jr has been nothing but top notch with answers and response.

Additional comments:
After an impulsive buy I have since done additional research looking for similar setup and quality. I purchased my guitar because the money back guarantee seemed legit and I wanted time to "test-drive". I have honestly found no other guitars that "off the shelf" are worth the money. Every higher end guitar I have played ($200-1400 range) since getting the Zager Parlor would need a setup to play as well with the additional cost of a hard case. The Zager's do get panned for marketing but get one delivered, actually playing it and looking at the value for the dollar makes getting one worthwhile in my opinion. TO get a guitar that plays as well would cost more money and time and expense to get it dialed in by hand by a luthier. Zager's work on many levels which I didn't really expect, and have made deciding to keep it easier. This is my honest opinion and it is in no way influenced by Zager except for the fact that I now own one. I also own 1943 Epiphone Blackstone, Epiphone AJ220S, Fender Strat,Martin LX1, Hofner Shorty, & Rogue A-style Mando. I have no particular style I just play guitar to amuse myself.

Best ever!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Sound, Playability and Action are superb.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I wouldn't care. It's better than any guitar I've ever tried.

How would you rate customer support?
Every business should learn Zager's Customer Support. I mean, how can you beat getting to try it out, and if you don't like it, send it back and they pay the return shipping. I did it with the 900 model they had. Didn't like it for the price, but I was a know nothing novice. Sent it back and got the 20 Mahog. Loved it so much I bought the 80 a year later. Now I wish that I had all three, instead of just the two. Would love to have a 900 again, as now I understand. I might even pay more if Denny comes up with a "Super Model" of what he thinks the ultimate guitar is.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I already do. These are top of the line, hand made and crafted custome guitars. You'll see that there is only one of two available at a time.

Additional comments:
If I haven't said enough, Dennis is great. He handles all the web stuff. You couldn't find a nicer guy to talk to. I grew up in the era of his dads songs, so it's all good and mellow with great support and quick responses to emails.

How did you hear about this brand?
I don't really remember how I found out about Zager guitars. I am guessing it was over the internet. It took me several years before I took the plunge. I wish I had bought one right away.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have been playing guitar for over 40 years. I have owned quite a few guitars and I have played some other fine guitars as well. To my recollection, I have never played an acoustic guitar which was as easy to play as my Zager guitar. The action is the best that I have experienced on an acoustic guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
This is a tough question because it has many features but I would have to say the ease of playing.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I am no expert in this area but would say at least twice what I paid. I have played a Martin while being fine guitars, were not as easy to play as my Zager.

How would you rate customer support?
The customer service is unequaled. I am amazed at the communications. Most times when I sent an email asking a question, I received a response in minutes. I am not kidding!!!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
In my opinion, if you are serious about learning to play acoustic guitar, do not waste your time on any other guitar. If you are an experienced player you should have a Zager guitar. The rest of your guitars will soon be gathering dust and you will start thinking about listing them on Craigslist.




zad900
Zager EZ-Play ZAD900 Professional


<gerald.pierce@gmail.com>
Model: zad900

How did you hear about this brand?
I bought a ZAD80CE early this year; I have already reviewed that guitar. I liked it so much that I wanted another model, and started looking at the top of the line, the ZAD900.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I am thrilled with this guitar. If you see my review of the 80ce, you can tell how much I like it. When I found out that the ZAD900 was not going to be continued, I bought the last one in inventory as an early birthday present. This guitar is a work of art on every level. I understand that Denny spends extra time setting up these 900's, and I could tell it immediately. It has an even lighter touch than my 80ce. The 80ce has a cedar top, while the 900 has spruce. They are different guitars with the different tops and the absence of the electronics in the 900. I play them every day, interchangebly, depending on whether I'm upstairs or downstairs. I guess the best way to explain it is that the 80ce is an elegant instrument, while the 900 is like playing a piece of art.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Now that I've been playing Zager guitars for a while, I guess I have to admit that my favorite part of the 900 is simply using it to learn from Denny's lessons. I don't think about the guitar when I play, because it takes care of itself. The light action makes it easy to feel linked directly to the music. I think that's about as good as it gets. Oh, it is beautiful! But the lessons enable me to turn that beauty into music like I've always wanted to play.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would not know. I have never played anything like the ZAD900, because I don't think that there is anything comparable. Knowing the guitar now, I would certainly have paid more for it than I paid. Don't tell Dennis!

How would you rate customer support?
I would rate it as the very finest I've ever encountered.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I not only would, I helped my neighbor decide on his Zager. His Martin stays locked up, and the Zager is what he plays.

Additional comments:
I have been playing since before the "2525" song was a hit. I have had very nice guitars, but I will play only Zager guitars as long as these fingers work.

A couple of years ago I was listening to the Michael Savage talk show on the radio. I heard your commercial for Zager guitars several times and it stuck in my mind.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have had a few guitars over the years, mostly cheaper guitars. I never gave it much thought and figured most guitars were about the same. That is until I recieved this beautiful instrument. It plays very easy and the sound seems to leap out.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The finish is superb, no sharp edges and it feels very comfortable to play. The fine string action makes chording very easy.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I happend to be in a music store recently and as you would figure there were many guitars on display. My ZAD20 would compare with the Guitars in the $800.00 to $900.00 range. The thing that really makes me feel good about my Zager guitar is knowing it is hand made right here in the United States.

How would you rate customer support?
Dealing with a company on the computer can always be a challange. I found the customer service very prompt. I ordered my guitar on a Tuesday and it was in my hands on Friday morning.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
YES. I have already shared the Zager web site with friends of mine. I do this with pride knowing I have a beautiful guitar that will last a lifetime.

I look forward to playin my ZAD20 most every day. I usually pactice in the early evening. I find it somthing I look forward too.

How did you hear about this brand?
Found you on the internet

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
No comparison. My new ZAD80CE is by far superior to the guitar I was using. I am 79 yrs of age and just learning to play. Having a lot of fun,but wasn't doing well with the Fender acoustic I was using. My ZAD80CE is much easier to play, easy on the fingers by comparison. Makes me want to learn and play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I have many faviorite parts about this guitar. Sound in far superior to my fender. Playability is a very big favorite. Looks, it is a beautiful instrument, well crafted.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would have guessed in the $1200 to $2000 range, but I am not an expert on guitars.

How would you rate customer support?
Wow, I have never dealt with a company like this in my entire life. Customer care and support is the best I have seen, period. Dennis and his Dad are so supportive and helpful to their customers, willing to go all out to satisfy and assist.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Without a doubt, I am going to introduce members of my Church band to this guitar. I would recommend this guitar to everyone and anyone. Most especially to people just learning to play. The ease of playing this intrument along with the sound is motivation enough for anyone to push forward with learning and becoming an accomplished player.

Additional comments:
What else can I say. As I said, I'm 79 yrs old and just learning. I was having great difficulty with the fender acoustic I was using, and couldn't practice but for a few minutes at a time because of sore fingers. The ZAD80CE changed all this for me, now I am practicing everyday for longer periods of time and enjoying it immensley. I am encouraged to stay with it with this guitar. What a joy, and what fun I am having. The icing on the cake with this guitar is the company, customer care and service is above reproach and makes everything just that much better. Dennis and his Dad are the best.

Am one of the few people to whom is given the best guitars I play. The guitar Zager ZAD 20 is the best model of metal-string acoustic guitars can only be mentioned. Electronics has been spoken professional looking custom-made guitars that sound. I think the Guild or Gibson acoustic modelleivel first small series can be compared! Each guitar is a one Allman sound. This simple model is able to speak beautifully, without electronic effects and manipulation that is reviewed every need!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Clearly a unique work. A real American dream. This instrument has a soul.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Stated in this model are ordered for $ 3000 and 2000. I think it is under-priced! Nalla customs cooperation in Europe has not reached its real value! Zager gift given with much that is already worth the $ 200. Dedicated pictures, Strings gifts, t-shirt, and professional packaging: Do not forget about the fact that it was now so many sold for years but this will be an invaluable instrument price!

The first time was considered a family member. This has never happened to me in the world of business! There are many leading companies envy service this quick and perfect! Special thanks to the international quality packing and shipping!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
After the happy owner of one such instrument, unintentionally ending up in a community where the order is still not leave him alone! In addition to teaching Zager some kind of musical instrument is easy to tell that the guitar is not worth the good professional opportunities! I can not wait to pick it up for her next album! Those who learn to play the guitar, however, this is an opportunity to get to other similar priced "guitar looking objects" would be granted to him not ... A new generation of guitarists Denny Zager be grateful!

Absolutely.....the quality of this guitar, at this price, lifetime warranty plus, if you don't like it send it back at no charge.......there's nothing to lose.

Additional comments:
I'm impressed. This guitar is a keeper. I'm in my 60's and have a little arthritis in my hands so the EZ-Play thing got my attention. This guitar really is a joy to play.

How did you hear about this brand?
Web search for quality acoustic guitars. Came across them on e-bay + then found their own website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is in no way short of any quality that you would expect to find in a Martin etc. In fact I find it to be a much nicer looking guitar with a warmer tone & excellent sound qualities, and tuning that holds tune. This acoustic guitar blows away any other guitars that I have ever owned.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I was considering purchasing a Martin guitar, but when I found the Zager site & read the reviews & testimonies I decided to take a chance and try the Zager. I am very pleased that I decided to go this way, as it saved me some serious cash + the quality in my opinion exceedes that of the Martin, which everyone already knows Martin is an excellent guitar company.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1,600.00 - $2,000.00

How would you rate customer support?
Beyond Superior, very quick responses to emails + a true authentic concern about their guitars + the players needs.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, I would definiately reccomend this guitar to anyone looking for a fine quality acoustic guitar. The sound is so sweet & this guitar holds tune better than any other acoustic that I have ever owned... Fenders, Charvels, Gibsons.

Model: zad20sunburst

How did you hear about this brand?
I ran across Zagar on Ebay and started reading the reviews after going to Zager.com

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I am fairly new to playing the guitar so my opinion may not mean as much as a seasoned player but I had two guitars that I started with. They were cheapies and were hard to play but at the time I didn't know there were easier guitars out there to play. The quality and sound of the cheap guitars compared to the Zager are miles apart. Similar to a Yugo and a BMW! You get what you pay for certainly pertains in this instance.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I got the Sunburst and love the look! But I have to say the ease of play and the sound are the things that stand out the most. They say the sound gets better with age but if it never got better I would still love it.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I started looking at guitar prices as soon as I took it up and I priced many online and a few in the stores. Zager could double the price of the Zad20 and still be in the ballpark.

How would you rate customer support?
I got almost instant feedback from Dennis when I asked a few questions. Amazing in this day and age to get this kind of support. On a scale of 1-10 it is 10plus.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would not hesitate to reccommend it to friends. It would be doing them a favor.

Additional comments:
I bought a Zad20 at a discount because of a minor blemish. I have yet to find the blemish and I have looked at every square inch! I got a exceptional guitar at a discount..priceless!

Zager EZ-Play ZAD20 Acoustic Vintage Sunburst


<widmer.dave@gmail.com>
Model: zad20sunburst

How did you hear about this brand?
This guitar was given to me by my niece, her husband played classical music as close to a professional as I have heard. He owned and played guitars that were valued as much as $10,000.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My niece's husband told her that this was not the most expensive guitar he owned, but that he "really liked the sound". I took this very seriously as he was a master quitar player.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I too really like the "sound" and it is very easy to play. My guitar is in great condition and it is very attractive. I own a 12 string Martin worth $2,000 made prior to 1970 and also a newer 6 string Seagul made in Canada valued at $200.. My Zager 6 string is a great compliment to my other guitars and it has a different "sound" than my other guitars that is "mellow" and has a great "deep" sound in the "lower" strings.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Somewhere between $200 and $800. The case is better than any case I have owned and is customized to fit this guitar and very well built and protective.I was told that the case may be worth several hundred dollars.

How would you rate customer support?
Zager answered my e mail immediately and was very kind and helpful.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, in this price range it is very easy to play and the "sound is great", and it is an attractive guitar.

Additional comments:
I was pleased to learn of the history of Denny Zager, his music and his guitar making skills.I have placed this "history" inside the case (as I will give this guitar to my grandson) and want him to appreciate the history.

<michaelht1@montana.com>
Model: zad900

How did you hear about this brand?
A number of years ago when I started my initial search for a quality guitar I came across the Zager site and was intrigued by the guarantee and the reviews of people with advanced ability who had nothing but praise for the Zager

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
That is a difficult question to answer as my other guitar is a ZAD80, which is both a beautiful piece of workmanship but wonderful to listen to and play. MY new Zager 900 is deeper in tone and resonance is a thing of crisp clarity

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My favorite part is of course the playability, which is not outdone by the craftsmanship; the maple binding adds a wonderful finishing touch to this piece of art, love the lows (the perfect definition of attenuation)

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
From the time I started my guitar quest with little knowledge of what made a quality guitar to now where I have gained enough knowledge to make a purchase decision based upon facts and of course what I like, this would far easily within the $4000-2000 range

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is second to none in any industry; I have dealt with Dennis on both my purchases, the first time he provided answers to a myriad of my questions quickly and without bias to allow me to make an informed choice. Both Denny and Dennis Zager always goes the extra step to make the entire purchase and ownership a rich and rewarding experience.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would gladly recommend the Zager guitar and have done so on many occasions, what would be more relevant is that the people I take lessons from and who are Luthier’s have also recommended the Zager to other students.

Additional comments:
The Zager 900 is my second Zager guitar, I first purchased the ZAD80 and it was / is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, wonderful sound, quality throughout; but I could not get the thought out of my head if the 80 sounds this good, what does the 900 sound like (and I was drawn to the finish of the hand bent Maple binding). While I cannot justify such a quality guitar purchase at my level of ability “as I am still learning to play and read music”, I do find just holding what I consider to be a beautiful piece of artwork and listening to the richness of the sound extremely gratifying and it further stimulates my desire to learn and do justice to this magnificent product. My new 900 sounds unbelievable, while it maintains the deep richness of my Zager80, the 900 allows you to almost feel the base and high notes are extremely sharp and mid tunes full of quality. Of course dealing with Dennis is always a pleasure, always helpful, provides recommendations to the person not to a potential sale, I certainly enjoy doing business with Zager as I know I will not be disappointed in either their customer service or the quality of their incredible guitars. While I cannot provide a professional review or that of even a good guitar player, I have had several extremely talented guitar players and entertainers tell me they extremely impressed with the Zager (and they have recommended them to people that have asked their advice on a guitar purchase). I am tremendously thrilled with this guitar (actually both the 80 and now the 900) practice and play every day and love the sound and feel of the quality and of course the playability. My sincere thanks for this newest addition of your guitar into our home, I hope do it justice as I become a more skilled player, in the meantime please know I have a huge smile on my face every time I simply hold it and admire the quality of your work. Thank you. With warmest regards Tom

Internet search

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My new zad20E plays as easily as did my old Martin D-18. Mr. Zager has hit upon the method of string adjustment that allows a well built guitar the important component of playability.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I own many guitars and the most important factor concerning this one given the playability advertized by the owner is the immediacy and positive response you get with any and all inquiries. The customer service with this company is superior to any I've encountered previously.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would have guessed the price to have been much higher.

How would you rate customer support?
As mentioned previously, the customer support and service is phenomenal. This attention to customer satisfaction displayed whenever called for is much more than an aside regarding this company and its products. Wow is my description when rating this company's support.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. The value and playability of these guitars are apparent. More importantly the instruments can actually speak for themselves.

Additional comments:
There are a number of systems available for making the guitar easily playable. Mr. Zager's method to my mind makes the most sense and the custom guitars he produces are first rate.

The prior guitar I used for over 30 years. It was a "Bluegrass". My new Zager plays so much easier and with better tone, it is just a much more enjoyable experience to play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I can now reach much higher frets comfortably than I ever could before,

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Here I am at a loss, as it has been so many years since I have purchased any guitar.

How would you rate customer support?
I have never needed any support since the box arrived on schedule and was perfect, just as ordered. When I first was interested in your guitar company, I emailed Denny and asked him which of his models to get, as I am over 70 years old and will never be doing commercial performances. To his credit, he suggested the 20 e as a economical practical choice. It suits my purposes well.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, I have done so, Because it is an easily mastered instrument and you can play and sound better than you really are.

Don't bother to send the strings, I am not doing this for reward.

Googled for Baby/Palor guitars

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I would have to say that it is as well constructed as any of my other two guitars (yamaha and martin) but is much easier to play due to the size and string ease. I do not have to mash as hard on the strings to get a clean note which is a joy to me because I am tired of sore fingers. Have had it a little over a week now and haven't experienced any soreness yet! :)

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Hmmm....it's size is nice because it is easy to tote around. It has a good sound for small areas and practicing playing...granted it is not a concert guitar but for it's size, it sounds as good as any other baby/palor guitar out there for a whole hellava lot less! It looks awesome. It is fun to play. I guess that is more than 'a' favorite part...sorry, got carried away.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would guess in the $800 range.

How would you rate customer support?
Awesome!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absoultely...They put the customer first which is the way it should be.

Additional comments:
I will probably never buy another guitar from anyone else as long as Zager is still around and hasn't changed their customer focused business plan.

Surfing the Internet to shop for a guitar and came across the Zager web site.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There is no comparison among the Zager and my current acoustic guitars. In stores, only the high-end guitars compare with the Zager.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My favorite part of my new Zager is the ease of playing which lets me play longer with no soreness in my fingers.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1000+

How would you rate customer support?
Excellent - zero complaints and Denny is highly responsive to my inquiries. He even responded almost immediately to an email I sent on Sunday.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would definitely recommend Zager guitars to anyone because you receive a high-quality guitar at an affordable price.

Additional comments:
Since Zager guitars are not widely available commercially (i.e. guitar stores, etc.), my Zager guitar seems like one of a limited number and will become more valuable over the years.

Purchased this guitar for travel after being so pleased with the ZAD20e. Not only is it perfect for travel, but it is gorgeous and sounds much better than I expected in a small guitar. Plus, the 'feel' is so similar to my other Zager. The bottom line is that I enjoy playing your guitars! Another cool thing is that as I get better the guitar continues to respond with improved sound.

I am a new player and was playing my daughters guitar and noticed my black Zad20 was so much easier to play and was really easy on the eyes as well.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Well since I really haven't learned how to play it yet I love the looks of it. It is truly a beautiful instrument, love the inlay, the finish and sound. I also love that the strings don't cut into your fingers and I can practice for longer periods of time.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would estimate the price to be at least $720 or higher.

How would you rate customer support?
I emailed Denny early one morning and within 20 minutes he had responded to all my questions with very helpful explanations. I would rate customer service an A+!!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes I actually told my husband about my Black Zad20 as I had ordered it for my birthday. I recommended Zager because I could tell by my research it was a good product with great service and would help me be successful in learning since it is more comfortable to play.

Thanks again for a beautiful guitar and giving the beginners out there a better chance of success in playing an instrument.

Zager EZ-Play ZAD80CE Acoustic Electric


<mccolefam@att.net>
Model: zad80ce

How did you hear about this brand?
I actually found an ad on ebay for a D-41 Martin and when I checked it out I found the Zager guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Head and shoulders above. I am only a strummer player. I sing and play with a Country Classic Band and before I got this guitar I doped the ends of my fingers with "New Skin" liquid bandaids to help my play longer without sore fingers. I've never used it again since I got this guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It is hard to pick one part as the favorite but I guess it would have to be the neck. a couple of years after I bought this guitar I bought a new Martin D-41. I only played it a few times. It had a beautiful sound but was not nearly as comfortable as my Zager. I sold the D-41. This guitar stays in tune better than any I've played also. Since I'm not a picker I don't practice every day but many has been the times when I would play about 3 hours on a Friday night, about another 2 to 3 hours on Saturday night, and then the next Friday my guitar is still in tune. It is awsome.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
If I had never heard of this guitar and played it and then the Martin D-41 I would think the Zager would be as expensive or maybe more than the Martin.

How would you rate customer support?
I actually just found out how good the customer support really is. I have had this guitar at least 6 years. The battery box is extremely hard to get out to change the batttery in the Tuner/Pick Up. I contacted Dennis about the problem and he said the electronics are normally warranted for one year but he is sending me a new unit. How could it be better?

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would and I have. I believe this guitar cannot be beat for anyone from beginner to professional. I believe that for the price of these guitars and the ease of playing as well as the sound a beginner has a better chance of staying dedicated to playing than he would on a cheaper or more expensive harder to play guitar. And the professsional, well, some people will buy for the high dollar name brand because of the prestige of owning "one of the best". I already own one, a Zager.

I started researching acoustic electric guitars about a year ago, and saw the Zager reviews posted on youtube.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My new ZAD20E is much easier to chord. The string placement and fret heighth is much more confortable. The tone is incredible, I've been playing a Hofner dreadnaught, a very nice guitar in itself, for almost 40 years and the tone and volume of my new Zager far surpasses my Hofner.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The genuine pleasure I get from playing such a fine guitar

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Easily over $1200.

How would you rate customer support?
Zager Guitars should be the yard stick for customer service for other companies. I recently ordered some parts and received them in just 3 working days, along with a complimentary set of strings. They are THE BEST!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely without any doubt. In fact, I already have. The quality and value of the Zager guitar is, in my opinion, the best in the industry.

Additional comments:
For anyone looking for not only a great sounding guitar, but a beautiful instrument as well, the Zager products are unmatched. I've been playing at a couple of open mic' gigs recently and several musicians have asked to play my guitar instead of theirs. Most are playing Yamahas or Martin's costing hundreds of dollars more. To a man, each person says, "I can't believe the playability and the tone of this guitar". I just say, Buy one!!

Zager EZ-Play ZAD20E Acoustic Electric Vintage Sunburst


<cbayee@gmail.com>
Model: zad20esunburst

How did you hear about this brand?
I actually saw easy-play guitars (other brands) on eBay. Further investigation led me to Zager Guitars' website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There IS truth in advertising. It is by far the most playable guitar I own, and I could only compare it to a $3,000-plus Gibson in terms of easy of playing. I also own a Breedlove that would go for around $1400, the ZAD20E is pretty close to it in terms of sound quality. I'm sure the higher end Zagers (still at a fraction of that price) would blow it out of the water.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Its looks make it inviting to play, but the playability of it keeps me opening the guitar case!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Probably $1200, particularly since it is all wood construction and there are many big-name brands that now use laminate sides on guitars costing nearly or slightly more than four figures.

How would you rate customer support?
Incredible. I've had numerous e-mail exchanges with Dennis, and he responded within an hour or two if not much less time than that.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! It's pretty simple -- all wood construction (you know it will age well), incredible value, excellent tone and superior playability. Why spend two thousand dollars or more to get that?

Additional comments:
I look forward to the day I can purchase a ZAD80E and then pass it along to my son.

How did you hear about this brand?
While searching on the web for the best guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is my first. However, comparing it to others in the store, I find it superior in worksmanship to most.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Ease of play is wonderful. String height is amazing! Since I'm a new player, I'm sure the overall string abuse to my fingers has been reduced significantly.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1000 +

How would you rate customer support?
I don't think it could get any better! Instant reply to emails and a wonderful person at the end of the line (phone calls). Very knowledgable, caring and a pleasure to do business with.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! Why? For all the reasons stated above. Quality product, great price and great customer service!

Additional comments:
I just wanted to say "Thanks!" Denny! I'm so happy with my new guitar. Some things in life are just made for 'enjoyment'... and this is one of them. It just gives me pleasure every time I pick it up!



zad50cespecial
Zager EZ-Play ZAD50CE Acoustic Electric Special Edition


zad50cespecial

Model: zad50cespecial

How did you hear about this brand?
Did a Internet search for acoustic guitars with the good action.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've owned various mid-range acoustics - Fender, Alvarez, Epiphone, Harmony, Yamaha etc. The best guitar I've owned was a Martin D-35. Loved the low and mid range and the action was fair. The Martin D-35 was stolen - hope they enjoy it as much as I did. lol Comparing the ZAD20CDLH to all the rest of the guitars I've owned the Zager won hands down. As a left hand player I would have purchased the ZAD80CE or ZAD900CE given the opportunity but unfortunately for me Zager doesn't make them in a left hand model so I purchased the best lefty they had which was the ZAD20CE. I purchased a discounted guitar for $645.00 but when I received it much to my surprise they sent a new undamaged one - 5 Stars. The day UPS delivered the guitar the temperature was 104 so I let it set in the case for a couple of hours. When I opened up the case and took a look at the guitar the action was terrible so emailed Dennis Jr and asked him if maybe they had missed setting this one up. He said the hot weather had been giving them havoc the last week of two so I set it back in the case till the next morning. When I checked it the next day the action was nice and low just as I was hoping for. Comparing the Martin D-35 to the ZAD20CDLH is hard because they are 2 different breeds of guitar. The Martin had a rich low and mid range while the ZAD20CDLH is rich in the mid and high ranges. From what reviews I've seen I would say when comparing the the Martin-35 to a Zager guitar the most comparable would be the ZAD80 or ZAD900 which are right hand only.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Hands down it would be the action. Very nice and easy to play. After the purchase I received a link to some videos from Denny Zager and it was clear that our playing styles were not the same. I like my firm pick and although his picks play well with the extra light strings I didn't like the sound of the pick on the strings. The ZAD20CDLH is bright and loud and the acoustics are very nice. Yes, it is a Sigma Martin made in Indonesia but it is not just another cheap guitar. It has customized bracing and the solid sitka top is thin enough for great resonance. The first thing I noticed about the guitar was the projection... Unlike other guitars I've owned the back and side are relatively silent while the sound resonates richly from the top. When playing standing up it doesn't sound like it has much volume but it does. Really nice volume to the people in front of you. In the future I plan on installing a JLD bridge system to support the custom bracing and top and experiment with various gauge strings.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I was worth what I paid for it... No complaints. $640.00 + $95.00 case + $40.00 shipping

How would you rate customer support?
They did good - Dennis Jr did the sales questions and Jillian handled the emails after the purchase. Jillian was very helpful...

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, I would... But there are some things purchasers need to know. Don't do anything to the guitar if your thinking you might want to use their money back guarantee. Zager guitars don't have a front strap peg. Don't add one or you won't be able to get a refund. Also the lifetime guarantee doesn't cover heavier gauge strings - only the gauge of the strings that come with the guitar. Like other guitar manufacturers heat and humidity are not covered in the warranty. Zager guitars are customized and delicate instruments and although they are well built they're not your usual Yamaha tank. I highly recommend a good quality case. Zager sells one that also comes with a humidity meter inside the storage compartment.

Additional comments:
Dennis Jr would make a good politician. lol So don't settle with the normal sales pitch. Ask questions till you are satisfied. He will answer you truthfully when pressed.



zad20
Zager EZ-Play ZAD20 Acoustic Natural


zad20
<stros29@msn.com>
Model: zad20

How did you hear about this brand?
Actually on ebay. A ZAD-20 was being offered.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My other guitar is a Martin DC 16o gte, and the new one a ZAD-20. Both guitars were set up well. Their playability is similar, but the Zager wins in this department by a small edge. One of the endosers of the Zager was "Doc" Holiday. He owns a recording studio and made mention that the Zager is the best recording guitar. I just did a side by side comparison while recording. By a small difference the Zager did record better without my attempting to make adjustments to either guitar. The Zager has a much brighter sound to it, probably why it recorded so well. When sitting down, on my couch to play, the warmth of the Martin is my preference here. Considering the cost of the two guitars, Zager at $495.00 and the Martin at $1720.00 the Zager wins the event.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It is nice to play and it looks good. The shape of the head and Zager name tag makes it looks like a Martin.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'd have a tough time comparing this to other guitars to come up with like prices, I've never played other brands. I was always a Martin fan. Zager has taken a place right up there though.

How would you rate customer support?
The support at Zager has been terrific. The Zager Team is quick with responses and support for everything asked of them.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would. For the $200.00 dollars, the ZAD 20, the guitar I purchased is a winner. I beleive the woods get better as the price goes up and that would enhace the sound od the instrument.

Additional comments:
Team Zager is just terrific.

Zager EZ-Play ZAD80CE Acoustic Electric


<rmblsb@optonline.net>
Model: zad80ce

How did you hear about this brand?
I was searching the internet for Martin guitars and this brand came up as comparable to Martin.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Much easier to play then my Yamaha. After playing my Zager for the past two months, I took a trip to our local guitar store and sat and played Gibsons, C.F. Martin, and Takamine. Although each has variances with sound and handling, my Zager was as good and in most cases better.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I love the sound that comes from this guitar. Play-ability is great as I am 54 and have arthritis in my hands.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would compare it to the $2000 range guitars.

How would you rate customer support?
I have not had to use customer support.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes. I't just perfect in every way.

Additional comments:
The best compliment I can give to my Zager comes from my son who also plays. After having my guitar for a few weeks, he came into my room where I was playing and said "I have never heard you play the guitar so much."

The Zad20 is so much easier to play and the sound is far better then the one I played the music stores.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's really easy to play for an older player arthtritis in his hands.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Over $1000.00 or more.

How did you hear about this brand?
Was searching eBay for Martins and came across the Zager listings.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There is no comparison to my old guitar, which is an acoustic Fender. The Zager has much more depth to its sound and much better action.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It would be hard to single out a favorite part. There are so many things I like about this guitar, to pick one would be impossible. The nice action, the totally awesome sound, the attention to detail...it's the total package.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
This is a $1600 guitar by any stretch.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support was great. Any questions I had were met with an almost immediate response by email.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would recommend this guitar to anybody looking to move up to a quality guitar, but doesn't have a bucket full of cash to spend. They can get the same quality and sound of a much more expensive guitar at about half the price.

Additional comments:
One feature that encouraged me to order this guitar was the liberal return policy. I'm glad to say "Sorry Denny. You're not gettin' this one back. It's staying right here in Sonoma."

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I bought a ZAD80CE about a year ago. It plays so much easier than any other guitar I have ever had, including a Martin. It is very easy on the fingers. I can play for 2 or 3 hours and could not before.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Ease of playing and sound. It is a very beautiful guitar. I play guitar with an accordion band so I need a strong bass. The sound is awesome and electronics work very well. No feedback that I have experienced in the past. Wonderful guitar!!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
More than I paid for it for sure!

How would you rate customer support?
I have not had any problems, but all my questions have been answered promptly.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes,Yes!!! For all the reasons I have described. If some thing would happen to my zad80ce I would get another one.

I sure would love for you to build a 12 string like this zad80ce for me. Thanks! Robert Kaiser

Internet research

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There is no comparison. I recently returned another guitar that was given to me as a gift because the action was ridiculously high making the guitar virtually unplayable. This particular guitar was rated as one of the best available under $200. Unfortunately it did not live up to its rating. On the other hand, the ZAD 20 is everything it is advertized to be and more. It is extremely easy to play and sounds great.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
As a beginner, I appreciate how easy this guitar is to play compared to others I have tried.

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

I am actually a hobby luthier. This guitar I have had for 3 years and is the only guitar that I did not build myself that I will not part with. All other of the shelf guitars I had have been sold. The ZAD20 I play in church 3 or more times a week and will not part with it. It just gets better with age.

Model: zad80ceom

How did you hear about this brand?
I was reading a story about custom set-ups on Martin guitars. The Zager name and reputation stuck in my head. I bought my guitar in Humble, Texas, when I was looking at a Guild. The Zager 80, was hanging right next to it. All I had to do was hold it, and I knew it was something special.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The neck and fretboard are the work of an expert, a talented master.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The neck, absolutely. Visually, the binding and attention to detail are striking. But, in a dark room, it's the neck, and of course, the sound!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
A couple thousand, minimum. There are certainly more expensive instruments, out there, but it's doubtful, if there are many that are better.

How would you rate customer support?
I've not needed them yet. But, I'm betting that if the Zagers put the same effort into Customer Support that they do the guitars, it's ginna be a good experience.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Read the above. This guitar sings. It has a soul. They'll still be talking about these guitars in the year 2525. Count on it.

Additional comments:
I got it in my head to start asking Texas songwriters to sign my guitar. (it already had Denny's autograph on the back) This guitar has never failed to get compliments. It stands out from the rest of the crowd.

You tube,watching acoustic guitar players.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Gibson,Martin, and Yamahas are great, but Zager guitars are the best! to own one of their high- end guitars I have to pay triple for what I paid for my Zager guitar.However,the playability of Zager is three times better than any of those I mentioned.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The beauty, the quality, but to me the playability is now my top priority.When I play my other acoustics I can't play for more than thirty minutes then I have to stop because my fingers are hurting.Playing my new Zager is a breeze.It's really true a very easy to play guitar.the only thing it doesn' do is play itself.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
2200-3000$

How would you rate customer support?
The best in the whole wide world.First I'm so reluctant to buy online because I like to see and play the guitar first to avoid all the hassles and so fort.But they only sell their guitars online so there's no other choice.Their one hundred percent money back guaranteed is what made me to go for it.When I e-mailed Dennis Jr. the guitar I want he responded to me within minutes.He told me it's considered done.And within four days I received my new Zager guitar.plus all the goodies included in the package such as t-shirt, picks,strings,certificate of authenticity and the big plus is Denny Zager's picture holding and fine tuning my guitar.I feel like a rock star and he is my guitar tech,lol.I'm very happy to all the help and support they provided me and I'm now Zager's customer for life.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I recommend Zager guitars for beginners to pro.for beginners you will be inspired to learn and play because of the excellent playability and quality of this instruments.The pro will really enjoy the full potential of this magnificent instrument especially If you play lead.If you're a guitar player you will know what I mean.

Additional comments:
When Denny Zager put his signature on these guitars,I just knew that he put his heart and soul in making them.A beautiful work of art.The beauty,playability and quality speaks for itself.My search is over,I finally found my perfect acoustic electric guitar.A million thanks to Zager company and crew.

zad20e
Zager EZ-Play ZAD20E Acoustic Electric Natural


<johnlorenzo@sbcglobal.net>
Model: zad20e

How did you hear about this brand?
While surfing the net, I ran across guitars advertised as "EZ play" modified, and "Zager String Science". I looked into Zager, and found the Zager website. The sheer number of positive testimonials convinced me to buy straight from the guy who invented the string science.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Well, it ranks way above any guitar I've ever owned in all areas. Comparing it to the dream guitars that I'd played in stores (and couldn't afford), I'd say it is just as good as a very few, or better than all the rest I've tried. I've always loved the high tones of a Martin, and this guitar matches them. The reason I've never bought a Martin is that I felt the mid-range and lows were weak. I was going to buy a Yamaha, because they are so warm in those areas, but my Zager has the warm lows to go with the bright highs. It's the best of both worlds!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Gosh, how about EVERYTHING?!?!?! Besides the beautiful range, the workmanship is evident, it is truly SO EASY to play, the finish is gorgeous!!! I also felt that the service I got from the Zagers was superb! The lifetime guarantee is also very comforting.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
This guitar is far superior to anything in the $1,000 price range. I would guess it to be in the $1,200 to $1,200 range. If I didn't know about wood, I would have guessed even higher!

How would you rate customer support?
First rate. I believe I asked, via e-mail, 3 questions of Dennis, and the longest it took him to respond was 20 minutes!!!!!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Definitely!!! I doubt I will ever buy another guitar for myself, but I have two accomplished guitarists in the family who keep trying to play mine (even though they have their own, more expensive guitars already), so I'm sure I'll probably be getting Zagers for them also. I played this guitar, unamplified, at a church that seats 1,200 people, and after the service, the guitarists in the congregation came to the choir loft and asked to try it. I think the guitar recommends itself!

Additional comments:
I've had it for 5 days now, and haven't stopped playing it, and my calluses are softening instead of hardening!

Similar in respect to cost, but the set up on the Zager was sweet, straight out of the box.

Additional comments:
i live in hawaii and the cost of shipping is a big problem here............i opted to have my guitar shipped via usps priority.........i paid for the guitar and shipping but because hawaii is a little bit different they couldn't ship by the agreed upon method...............zager paid out of their pockets the difference in shipping which was about thirty dollars or so...........company has integrity and i really appreciate that...............my next guitar will definitely be a Zager!!

The Zager Parlor has a wonderful finish. Its action is likewise excellent, and it has the projection of a full-sized cutaway acoustic. Its tone is likewise nice, and the Zager Parlor is very responsive to touch.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It's impossible to pick; I'm amazed at the quality of appearance, the playability and the projection equally.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$700 ( Easily double what I paid for it )

How would you rate customer support?
From Dennis Jr to Jill, everyone has been wonderful. All my e-mail responses have been within hours, regardless of the day / time I have sent them. No big box store would ever respond as quickly.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I already have ( I've had the guitar for less than a week ). However, I don't need to say anything. I just let my friends play it, and they all become convinced.

Additional comments:
I bought one of the "discount" models. I am unable to find any flaws that I can justify the drop in price. Zager guitars have a high standard of quality, and I am very impressed with my guitar. Thank you, all

How did you hear about this brand?
I can't recall exactly. I think I was researching on the web about "In the year 2525", and stumbled onto what Zager has been doing since the song.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a Korean Dobro, which is loud acoustically and fun to busk with in the street. And I had an early 1954? Japanese made Goldtop Les Paul, which was fantastic, but I never used, and might have been worth a small fortune. But,..I sold it to a young man here, with Jimmi Hendricks talent,.just so I could buy my dream guitar; A Zager. I play mostly quiet, thoughtful songs, like In the Year 2525, with picking,slowed, and the acoustic quality of the Zager is so fine. I've a few rock and roll songs, today I'll plug it in and see what it sounds like with electricity.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Rave about it in all ways. Including case, generous,& individualized service. Zager Co. is the best.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
It's the best. Guitars can be made more expensive, or encrusted with diamonds. I doubt they can be made better.

How would you rate customer support?
Wow. Impressive, so pleasing to deal with you.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?

Altogether a positive, and memorable, brag about it, experience.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a vintage Guild acoustic and an American Strat. I've played a variety of guitars, most recently a couple of Takamines. I bought a Takamine but didn't like the "tinny" sound. The ZAD20e has a deeper tone, more like a Gibson.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Impeccable finish, excellent setup...and the best case I've ever seen for a guitar.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1000

Excellent response, though I've needed nothing...it was all provided beforehand.

How did you hear about this brand?
I was searching eBay for a new 900 series when I found Zager products. I read their listing and then visited their website.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
It has the playability of my Ovation Adamas but has a much wider range in tone, the tone I was looking for in a Martin. I knew the playability of the Martin would not be what I had been used to with the Ovation but felt I needed more tone, the Zager has both.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Obviously, the price makes this guitar very desireable but to get so much sound projection from a guitar in this price range, the tone and projection are my favorite part of the Zager.

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

How would you rate customer support?
5 out of 5 Stars, I have not had any issues with the guitar but the service before and during the sale has been OUTSTANDING! It was a true pleasure to do business with them. All email question were answered within minutes.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely, it is a great company to do business with. My guitar was shipped the same day I ordered it and arrived in excellent condition with lots of extra goodies included at no charge. Oh, by the way, they also build a great guitar!

Additional comments:
I in no way wish to knock my Ovation it is a fine instruments but the Zager gives me more of what I am looking for in a guitar. Playability along with great tone.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is in a class all it's own. I can honestly say that it plays far better than any guitar I've ever owned. It surpasses even the most expensive Martin guitars I've tried in the past. The best part is that I can play for hours and my fingers don't get sore.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The playability - it's second to none!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$2000 or more

How would you rate customer support?
The absolute best! My questions were answered promptly and Dennis, Jr. is a real professional - just like his father.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! The reason is simple - the guitar is so easy to play. When a guitar doesn't make your fingers sore and causes no discomfort in any way whatsoever, you will keep playing and your skills will naturally improve. For beginners, they will keep practicing longer and not lose interest because of sore fingers or tired hands. You will sound better with this guitar and those who hear you play will enjoy hearing you even more.

Additional comments:
After playing my new Zager, all I can say is that I am totally blow away by this quality guitar. It is truly a world class instrument and I'm proud to own it. God bless Denny and Dennis, Jr. They are both awesome - as is the guitar!

<rick@newenergyinc.com>
Model: zad80ce

How did you hear about this brand?
I did a search for easy playing guitars

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I own a Les Paul that was purchased prior to the ZAD80ce. I wanted an easier playing guitar so I spent a lot of time at Guitar world trying just about every acoustic guitar they had available - regardless of price. Then I decided to order the Zager (no risk with their return policy) and - well the rest is history. The Less Paul is in storage.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I like the ZAD80ce for two reasons. One is the easy playing part and the other is the vibrant tone. Honestly I think my Martin sounds a litte dead compared to the Zager.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Based on what I paid for previous guitars, the ZAD80ce would be $3k plus.

How would you rate customer support?
Dennis has been extremely helpful with any issues I have had with my purchase. They alway respond promptly and take care of any problems in a professional manner.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would and have recommended Zager guitars to others simply because I think it is without a doubt the best value in a great guitar. And you don't have to worry about being left out in the cold if you have a problem or even if you don't like the guitar after a trial period.

Additional comments:
When I was much younger, I played a Fender Jazzmaster. At that time that was by far the easiest playing and best guitar on the market. I quit playing for about 30 years and when I decided to take it up again, I needed something easy to play to accomodate my short, stubby, and somewhat slower fingers. I think the Zager fits my needs perfectly.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is EASILY the best quality guitar for the cost available.The Customer support provided by Zager is something that should/could be taught in Bussiness School. Now a days real Customer Support is a myth, like a unicorn. But it definitely is alive and real with this company.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The guitar looks, plays, and sounds fantastic.For a smaller model it plays unbelievably easy, and the sound is BIG.This is exactly what I wanted. Mr.Zager definitely puts alot of time in ensuring this product is quality, and lives up to the reviews.

$800-1200 USD.

How would you rate customer support?
Every company on this planet should learn from the customer support provided from Zager. I have never been treated as good by anyone in regards to a purchase. Every question was answered thoroughly, and fast.As well as recieved my Guitar here in Afghanistan faster than any package I have ever recieved in th USA via USPS.

Easier to play, and, much nicer tone quality.

Exceptional. I've asked Dennis several questions via email, and response is always lightning-fast.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. Because of it's playability and remarkable tone quality.

Additional comments:
I'm glad I followed my curiosity and checked Zager out. I'm extremely pleased with my new guitar. I suspect that, at some point, my ZAD20 will be handed down to my son and I'll return for a ZAD80. The gifts included with my guitar were also a very nice touch. I particalarly like the picture of Denny playing my black ZAD20 before it shipped out. I'm a huge '2525' fan, and I consider it quite special that Denny actually worked on and played my guitar.

Everything, so far. The intonation is perfect. I can't wait for the wood to settle. The volume is about the same as my Martin D35 and should get even better

How did you hear about this brand?
I first heard about Zager Guitars via ebay. I then went on line and read many positive reviews which motivated me to buy the Travel Mahogany.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I am small and petite and had purchased a Dean Gypsy which is a nice guitar, but the Travel Mahogany just fit right in my hands. It is very easy for me to hold and easy to play especially being a beginner.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My favorite part in not having any sore fingers. I gave up trying to learn to play the guitar because I could not handle the sore fingers. Not to mention this is a beautiful guitar. Although I bought this guitar as a blemished model and got it at a reduced price which was great. You can not see the blemishes, it looks like a perfect guitar. Awesome deal!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$200 to $600

How would you rate customer support?
The best customer service. I had some questions before buying the guitar and sent Mr Zager an email on a Saturday and literally in minutes I received a response. He also sent a follow up email after I purchased the guitar.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. Great product and great customer service.

This guitar fits me like a good suit, I just cannot hack into this guitar. It reminds me of the blues great Freddie King saying 'you have to caress it like a woman to really play a great solo' I feel the same about this guitar,I have to come to know the guitar.It sits there comfortable waiting for someone to play it. It is great for fingerpicking as it is so well balanced. I have had other expensive guitars and I spent a lot of playing time getting the overall balance.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It is like a baby, like it has a life of it's own. The workmanship has made a real musical instrument waiting to be played

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Going on what I have paid before, around the $2,000

It is a great,great guitar for so little money. That is what a pro muso thinks of. Beside the money aspect. It would stand up with the best I have owned, that is yamaha and Martin. It stands and betters a Martin as now I can just concetrate on the music.

Looking for a guitar on ebay and "string science" caught my eye. I started researching what this was and it lead me to Zagar guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I do not even pick up my old guitar anymore. This Zager just feels so comfortable and natural, the only time I want to pick my old one up is if I want my hands to hurt.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
So easy to play. I thought there would be a trial period in there for it, but there was no need for that. Right out of the box it was ready to go. When you get yours, plan for some time to play because you won't want to set it down. For beginners it gives you confidence to try the chords you normally don't like to.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would say right at $1000.

How would you rate customer support?
Amazing!! Immediately after ordering I got an email and I had to have it shipped to Germany so Dennis Jr. confirmed my address to make sure it would get there alright.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely! Friends of mine that play my guitar love it as much as I do and cannot believe the price I paid for it. Once again for beginners it gives you confidence to play and lets you play longer without your hands hurting.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a Crestwood Acoustic/Electric Cutaway which is no comparison to Zager guitars! Blows my old one out of the water and considering i've played some of the top of the line guitars in Guitar Center. Higher end Martins. The ZAD20E out performs the pricey ones I played and just so stylish.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?

How did you hear about this brand?
Googling "how to buy the right guitar". Pretty soon I came upon people recommending Zager guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I like my Yamaha FG-441S, but this is a completely superior product. As soon as I picked a few notes, the tone and sustain on this guitar was wonderful.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I think I'm in love. The action, machine head gear ratio, the finish, tone, sustain, all perfect.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I've never owned a "high end" guitar, so I can only say that this 80ce is far superior to any other guitar I've owned. I currently have 4 other guitars - Ovation Celebrity Deluxe, Godin LG electric, Godin Fretless Acoustic A5 Bass, and Yamaha FG-441S.

How would you rate customer support?
Prompt, helpful, generous, dedicated. (I am a computer technical support provider since 1988, so I know when I'm getting good support.)

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Definitely, because it sounds great and is obviously very high quality.

Additional comments:
Just think about this if you're thinking about buying a Zager: In the box is a whole bunch of stuff like a free lesson, several picks - not just one, an extra set of strings, and even a custom made card on the neck to warn about possible string buzz from shipping, and what to do about it. A digital humidity meter is in the case. I am truly blown away by the product. I love giving good support to my customers, and obviously, Dennis, Dennis II and Jill love doing what they do as well. I am motivated to write these words out of appreciation for the product, by the way. I have never talked to or met these folks before.

Additional comments:
I can't say enough on how much I love this guitar. I spent over a year locking for a new accoustic. I tried many top line modles. Gibson, Martin to name a few. I said I would never buy a guitar without playing it first, but with Zagers guarantee, all money back, including shipping, how could I go wrong. I'm so thankful that I found Zager Guitars. I Wouldn't go as far to say that this is the last guitar I'll ever buy, I can say it would be the last one I would ever sell. Thanks again Denny.

How did you hear about this brand?
Saw some Martins etc on Ebay and wondered what this Zager EZ Play was all about.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My ZAD20 plays far better than my Yamaha F36S, Oscar Schmidt and, Blue Ridge and others I was test driving when I ordered a Zager.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I could say the tone, some brightness and some mellowness, a trait of Mahogany that I like, or the overall finish, or the quality of the fret work, or maybe the dimensions and fit of the neck. Then again, how easily it plays may be a favorite. It would be easier to identify what I don't like; I don't like that I waited until May 2012 to buy one. Imagine all the hours of painless playing enjoyment I have missed.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
This is an opinion thing of course. I would place the ZAD 20 easily in the $620 to $920 range.It is certainly superior to several guitars I played in that range and definitely equal to the best of them. Denny offers a quality guitar at a player's price.

How would you rate customer support?
Can't beat this. The warranty and guarantee is top notch. Add to that quick response from Dennis and staff, even accomodating my rambling retired lifestyle so the guitar arrived while I was home to receive it.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Sure I would recommend a Zager. The guitar will make a good player sound better but more importantly, a new player can concentrate on what he or she is learning rather than how much their fingers hurt or the dead or ringing strings. Their are two sources of problems with students; student problems and guitar problems. Denny has eliminated the guitar component. Addendum: Zager has my support also because of the school music program. Good!

Additional comments:
Good, a spot I can ramble in. I started playing at 11 years old; I am 64 now. I was playing in a group by 13. By 18, I was physically suffering from the stresses of performing and all it entails. I joined the military and quit playing for the next 40 plus years. 3 years ago I pulled out my old 12 string and played again. It was a good thing to do. Now one last comment on the ZAD20. Pulled it from the case and examined the guitar. Looked at the neck relief and string height. Hmmm, looks higher than I expected. but, Denny set it up so I will give it a go. Get This! No finger tension moving up the neck. Fingering was easy. Go figure that. On my Yamaha, that would have been painful. And the final stroke of wonderfulness, I played bar chords all the way to the 12th fret and not a single dead string or tinny ring. A perfect set up Denny! I don't know how it was done but I am truly impressed. The only reason I will ever part with this Zager guitar will be to buy another, guaranteed.

They exceeded my expectations in all areas that would make a consumer confident the item they purchased is a quality product. You can actually talk to someone, see the instrument and play it. If you don't like it, they will take it back...but seriously, if you sent it back it would be because you are tone deaf and partially blind.

I purchased the ZAD-15 in 2005. I found the sound to be as good if not better than my epiphone and gibson guitars. The quality of sound and easy playing neck is the best I have heard right out of the box without setting it up. No setup needed. Great action.

The E-Z play feature. It's true the easiness of playing this guitar is by far the best feature to me.

I don't know how they pack all that sound in the guitars but man I am amazed.Pluged and unpluged

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The sound , the finish ,the ez-play , the price , the ClearWave 10 pick up and the size.

Through a google search.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is easier to play and sustains perfect pitch longer than the guitars I am used too.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The neck. It is very easy to wrap my hand around, yet the finger board has plenty of space to finger chords accurately.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1200-$2000

How would you rate customer support?
Flawless. Very fast response time.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I always recommend my Zager. I think name recognition is the biggest stumbling block to others when buying a guitar. Most people I talk to never heard of the Zager Guitar, and are to lazy to research and compare the Zager's quality control to that of a factory mass-produced product.

Additional comments:
My name is Jeff Gater and I purchased the ZAD80 CE Model guitar last year. I am very satisfied with the guitars playability. I am 52 years old and have not played the guitar seriously for 20 years. I believe the Zager guitar has made my entry back into playing guitar easier and very rewarding. I appreciate the workmanship of this fine instrument. Other guitar players who have tried my Zager are very impressed. Non-players always comment how beautiful the guitar is. Most Sundays I am in our church praise band backing-up the lead guiyar player. The on-board tuner and playabilility of the Zager, along with the resonating lows help me apreciate the music I am producing and play with confidence.

How did you hear about this brand?
I had recently had several guitars stolen, including a nice old Guild D-15; when I started looking for a replacement, I decided to buy a hand-made guitar; I was looking at Larrivees, when I say one that said it had been modified with a Zager EZ play system. I checked out the website, shot a few messages back and forth, and after watching a number of videos, decided to buy one.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I've played a lot of guitars... been singing and writing for over 40 years. I've owned Matrins, Guilds, and Ovations, and played a few of the high-dollar Larrivees... the Zager 20ce sounds every bit as good, and played much better than any of them. The only guitar that even comes close is a friends $4000 Martin; close, but not cigar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Picking a favorite is hard; I've always been about tone, and the tone is superior, with a huge dynamic range from finger-picking to full on, booming strums; even chords that are strummed forcefully are clear as a bell and ring like a grand piano. It's amazing to me, that a guitar that plays so easily could be as loud and dynamic;

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I'd estimate it at $1200 - $2000, and that's conservative; I've put it head to head with some guitars in that range, and the Zager was the clear winner.

How would you rate customer support?
In my day job, I work in a call center; we're the only telecom company to have won the JD Power award 4 years in a row; I know and expect customer service, and Zager never disappoints; they have, hands down, the best customer service I've ever seen.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would definitely recommend this guitar, and frankly, any guitar Zager makes. I've had the guitar for less than a week, and I think I've already sold two more to a couple of friends.

Additional comments:
I have to truly believe that anyone who has the funds to buy a Zager, and buys something else should have their heads examined!

Amazing. Right out of the box my new Zad 20e sounded as seasoned as my thirty year old Blue Ridge and real close to my '61 Martin0018.

Immediate playability. Make that easy playability. Have to remind myself it's not necessary to fret so hard.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Somewhere in the 7-8 hundred dollar range.

Great. I had questions before making my purchase and, like every other question since, it was answered in depth by Dennis.

Absolutely. The sound, playability, looks. And if you still don't like it, send it back as the have a generous guarantee policy

Additional comments:
Can't wait to spring the "Black Beauty" on my mates, next jam session. I had been laid up for weeks and so had ample opportunity to research my next guitar. I was going to buy an acoustic electric. There are thousands out there. But I only found one place, Zager, that would guarantee my satisfaction. This is the only outfit on line that I would trust when making a sight unseen guitar purchase. It arrived earlier than promised, there were no unpleasant surprises only unexpected good ones. They make you feel like their only customer. They remind me of days long gone when a small outfit took pride in their work, put their name on their work and stood by it. My only problem is how to stave off the urge to buy the Zad 20ce.

A family member purchased a Zager last year and having played it recently ( and being very impressed ) I got interested and started researching the brand.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
There is no comparison between this guitar and other guitars that I've owned or played in stores. The quality of instrument for the price is unbelievable!The more I play it the more I want to play it.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The playability of the guitar is the first thing that stands out. You can play notes with ease that previously would have been challenging. It makes you want to practice ! Also, the sustain of the notes and chords have to heard to be believed!This is quite simply a beautiful guitar.

1200 - 2000 dollars

How did you hear about this brand?
On the radio.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My old guitar is nice but compared to the ZAD80CE there is no comparison. The Zager is beautiful. My old guitar was no nearly as easy to play as the Zager. I don't have to press down, like a vise, on the frets to get a beautiful sound. Speaking of sound the Zager is much better. There is something about the neck; it seems thinner so I can get my hand around it easier.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The ease of play and the sound, not to mention it is a beautiful.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would estimate this guitar to be in the $2200 range.

How would you rate customer support?
In every instance my questions were answered promptly. The Zagers are top notch in this area.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would recommend this guitar to everyone, especially beginners. The ease of play, and sound, are just great.

How did you hear about this brand?
Found them while surfing the internet.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
At or near the top. Very much a novice guitar player so not a great authority on the subject but plays and sounds as good as or better than anything else I have ever tried, and I have picked up a few higher end Martins before that I was quite impressed with. In my opinion Zagar guitars can absolutely compete with those for way less money.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Tough question...so many fantastic qualities...I guess it would have to be the fact that they play so nice.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Probably about a grand.

How would you rate customer support?
So far absolutely fantastic!!!

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely...probably THE best guitar buy out there.

Additional comments:
I could only afford to buy one of the "slighty damaged" discount guitars that Dennis sells, but after I recieved it I e-mailed Dennis Jr. and told him that it was obvious that Zagar Guitar Co. takes great pride in their workmanship, and me being in the machine shop business for almost 40 years that was something that was drilled into my head at the early stages of my career that can only lead to success, so I lived by that fact ever since, and the fact that Zagar Guitar Co. has that attitude , along with their almost unheard of fantastic customer support can only mean a top rated business.

I found the Zager Guitar on the web. while I was searching for quality guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a older Marlboro Martin, The Zager 20 is so much easeir to play . The sound of the Zager 20 is comparable to the Martin 28 . I have played a Martin and i prefer the sound of the Zad 20 though.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The best part of the Zad 20 is how easy it is to play as well as the quality and workmanship that goes in to the Zad 20.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I have been shopping for a new guitar for some time and if i was to see a Zad 20 in a music store I would experct to pay well over $1200.00

How would you rate customer support?
Dennis was great to answer all my questions and he was able to do this with in minutes.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would recommend the Zad 20 to any and all of my friends. The quality that goes into the Zager guitars is outstanding.

I have always wanted a good quality guitar, Now I Have One. In time if i upgrade to a Zad 5o or 80. I will still keep my Zad 20 Sunburst it is a work of art.

How did you hear about this brand?
I heard about this brand from looking at other guitars on Ebay. I had already purchased a new Guild GAD 20 (natural) with case on Ebay but kept searching to see what else was out there and that's when I discovered the Zager Guitar.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I haven't had time to try my Guild guitar yet and I just received the ZAD20 yesterday

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I love everything about this guitar as it is a beauty and knowing that it will be easier to play without getting sore fingers is a plus as I type at work and I can't afford to have sore fingers. I really can't believe you can get a good quality guitar for the price that they're asking. Unbelievable.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Just from looking and comparing guitars on Ebay and other guitar websites, I would say around $1200-$1200.

How would you rate customer support?
Zager's customer service is outstanding. I have never dealt with any customer service as good as theirs. They are so friendly, very helpful and get back to you right away.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I would definitely recommend the Zager guitar to anyone because of the great price for a quality guitar and because it is a EZ play guitar.

Additional comments:
I can't believe what a wonderful experience it was to purchase my guitar and case from Zager Guitars. I wish I would have found them sooner.

I heard about Zager guitars on a blog, which stated that they are great for people who have "fat fingers" like me.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My Zager allows me to play clear chords. It was virtually impossible to play clear chords with my original guitar. In addition, my Zager guitar is definitely richer looking and sounds better.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Although this guitar looks and sounds fantastic, my favorite part is that I can now play clear chords relatively easily.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I really can't say because I didn't shop other brands; however, numerous reviewers say Zager guitars compare to those costing several times more.

How would you rate customer support?
Customer support is fantastic! Dennis responded very fast to my emails and Denny's Help Videos are very informative. I've learned a lot already.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes, I will definitely recommend Zager guitars to others because they are easy to play and look and sound fantastic.

<stan@northeastrepos.com>
Model: zad20e

How did you hear about this brand?
Internet reviews and Ebay.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Very favorably. It sounds better than any other guitar I have owned that cost less than $1,000. I was particularly impressed with the level of fit and finish for a sub $200 guitar. It looks as good as anything I have seen, played, or handled by ANY manufacturer costing less than $1,000.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Without a doubt the tonal quality of the instrument. It gives off a crisp clean tone with well rounded range. It is also the easiest guitar I have played in a long time. The action is fantastic and I find that I can play it longer and faster than my other guitars.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$900.00 or more.

How would you rate customer support?
Very good. Dennis Jr. was very responsive to e-mails and questions. I usually got a reply within an hour or two. He was also helpful in answering questions about the set up of the instrument and accessories available with the guitar.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. I bought this guitar based on the many favorable reviews I read on the internet, hoping that if it were 75% of what people were stating, it would be a bargain. I am happy to say that it has been everything I had expected and have yet to find a real gripe with this guitar. My only criticism, as small as it may be, is that the hygrometer (that comes included with the purchase of the Zager hard case)is not permanatly mounted in the case. It arrived laying loose in the accessory compartment of the case. I would have liked to have seen it embedded into the lining of the case.

Additional comments:
My 12 year old son loves playing this guitar so much that I may actually have to consider buying another one and giving him this one. Perhaps a ZAD 20 or ZAD 80 is in the future.

<les.gourlay@gmail.com>
Model: zad20eblack

How did you hear about this brand?
Found Zager guitars through their web site after doing some research to find all guitar makers A-Z. Found the web site interesting as I'm old enough to remember Zager&Evans record 'in the year 2525'. Curiosity got the better of me and on going thru the web site I was really impressed by the range of guitars from Denny Zagers' company. Spent some time looking at reviews, videos and previous customer comments. The comprehensive range of guitars and services off the back of the web site really did impress so I got tempted and after some emails back and forth, I was convinced that I'd like to try one of the guitars.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have many guitars including 5 acoustics. My favourite two are Gibson J160e for general acoustic flatpicking and an Ayers AS for sweeter fingerpicking style. Both these are great guitars for what they do but I just got tempted for something new. Since getting the Zager I must say that the action on the Zager is lower and much easier on the hand than the J160e all the way up the neck and much zingier than the Gibson. The Zager on fingericking is also good way up to the 12th fret still keeping a decent volume. It's a different type of guitar to the Ayers AS which has a much wider neck than a normal acoustic so the sounds are quite different, the Zager being powerful and projecting with a pick, whereas the Ayers is more for sweet finger style. The Zager is still however for the price is well up there in construction, looks and sound for the money. I really cannot believe the low smooth action all the way up the neck. I have tried some really big name acoustics in local shops and I could not justify paying £1200 plus to own a M****n or a G***d when they are not as comforable to play, nor are the sounds significantly better. ( overall sound being subjective and personal anyway ) Zager is as good as anything I've tried whether acoustically or amp'd up thru the pickup.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Apart from the looks and the excellent sound that comes out this thing, I am really pleased aboout the action and how easy it plays. Maybe it in my head but I do feel my chord changes have become cleaner and I've checked all my other dreads and I'm sure there is a slightly wider string spacing on the Zager at the nut,??. I;m convinced this does help with achieving cleaner notes.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
If this guitar were hanging on a wall in a guitar shop I'm convinced it would be in the high end section beside the big names not in the mid price section where the price point actually is. Buying direct obviously avoids a retailers additional profit and taxes so considering this I really have got a high end guitar for a bargain price.

How would you rate customer support?
Emails back and forth between myself and Dennis Jr before I made the decision to buy were real friendly, and gave me confidence that I was a one to one customer. Questions were answered, special shipping was costed back to UK and I was invoiced personally to arrange. Quick and simple but with a personal touch gave me the confidence to buy from USA to UK.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Its a great looking, great sounding and very, very easy guitar to play. The neck has obviously been well designed, well set up and made very playable. The whole sale process had that bit of TLC from people that are in the business of selling you their product , their name and their reputation. All too rare nowadays.

Additional comments:
Glad I found myself doing some research on 'all guitar makers' to have got all the way through to the lette 'Z' and to have come across Zager. It was meant to be !!!!!

My new Zager ZAD20E Sunburst guitar is noticeably more playable than my vintage Washburn given its amazing action and relatively narrow neck. The tone easily rivals my vintage Gibson.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
My favorite part is the neck.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would estimate the price to be in the $1200.00 to $1800.00 price range.

How would you rate customer support?
I would rate the customer support a 10 out of 10, especially since I mistakenly ordered the wrong model initially, but the Zager guitar company paid for my return shipment cost of the first guitar even though the mistake was mine, not Zager's.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes. It's a screamin good deal.

Additional comments:
I greatly appreciate the personal touch in this guitar purchase from Dennis Zager and his family owned company.

How did you hear about this brand?
ebay....of all places. Then researched it. After what I read online and heard from the master himself it made too much sense not to try. All the issue he hit were right on.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
No comparison. It's setup just the way I would have done it had I the skills and know how. And the sound is incredible. Bright and full - abundant musicality. I've owned Gibsons and Martins before and nothing outshines this.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Well, it arrived a day before DJ said it would which was a great surprise. And then it just smells great coming out of the case. It gleams. It's just so cool to have the built in tuner and then it's ready to go as if I has been breaking it in for years.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Donno how to guess this one. But at least three times what I paid, if not much more. Really, this is not BS. It's a great feeling axe that looks and sounds perfect. Just wish I were a better player - but now I have even more reason to get back to playing.

How would you rate customer support?
Haven't needed it. But Jr has been right there with every question. I haven't had to wait long for an email answer.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Absolutely. No hype or BS about it. Just a fantastically player friendly instrument that looks and sounds wonderful.

Model: zad80ce

How did you hear about this brand?
Found it on eBay; went to the website for more info, and bought from Zager direct.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
My new ZAD80CE is the best playing guitar I've ever touched in my 45+ years of playing. The fit and finish are outstanding - second to none.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It is truly the easiest guitar to play that I've had in my hands. My fingers were hurting at first because I was using the same pressure that I've used on my other guitars. You have to relax and accept the fact that it is not going to be difficult to depress the strings. What a great feeling! Then you see what a guitar is supposed to feel like.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$3,000+

How would you rate customer support?
These folks appear to redefine "customer support," two words that usually make me cringe. I have been treated like family, even though I have made a pest of myself.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
YES. I was a Yairi disciple. My favorite '82 Yairi (bouht new) was stolen, and I stumbled onto this site when looking for a similar, vintage replacement Yairi. I saw the sample video lessons and knew that I may well have found the "true path" to my musical growth. I now have the guitar in my hands, and I can tell you that Zager is the real thing, guitars and system. I will soon get another Zager as a back-up. Who knows? Somebody may steal my favorite guitar.

Additional comments:
If I had had this guitar when I was 12 years old instead of that old Kay arch-top, I know that I would be a much better player today than I am. If I had had the system, too, I would already be the player that I want to be. Thank you, Denny and Dennis!

Nostalgia! I googled Zager & Evans hoping to locate their 60s single "In the Year 2525," and stumbled on Denny's website - I Also located "In the Year 2525"...double bliss!!

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have 1991 Ovation and a 2003 Takamine, both electro-acoustic. Both are good guitars and I will still love playing them, but it is the sound quality and volume of the sound that makes the ZAD900ce stand out.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Early days and still finding out, but so far the ease of playing, and low string action. The acoustic sound is exceptional.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
£1200 ($1900)

How would you rate customer support?
This is where this company stands out. I live in Scotland, and although I liked the guitars I saw on the website, I was wary of shipping all the way from the USA. I needn't have been. I made an initial e-mail enquiry and got an immediate reply form Dennis Zager Jnr. He reassured me about shipping abroad and walked me through my purchase. The whole experience was quick, efficient and painless, and the added reassurance of a lifetime guarantee is exceptional.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Yes. The whole package is exceptional. The ZAD900ce is a quality guitar at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for a guitar I would certainly recommend the Zager brand. Go on give it a go, you won't be sorry...I'm not.

Additional comments:
I've been playing guitar now for about 40 years and have played several models, favouring my Ovation above all so far for its low action, narrow fretboard and ease of playing. The Ovation will always have a place in my heart, but I'm enjoying my ZAD900ce and I'm sure it will mature into a wonderful playing instrument.

Customer support is amazing! That is definitely a highlight of this company. They definitely back up what they say! I had an issue with the first guitar I purchased. They told me how to fix it myself and also pointed me to videos to help as well. When that didn't work, they ask me if i would be willing to have them replace that guitar with another one in the same model. They go out of their way to have satisfied customers! Amazing!

A fellow Musician had a ZAD80CE

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have a Martin D-41, made in 1973. It has been my instrument of choice for all these yearas. The Zager ZAD80 is a close resemblence to the Martin D-35 in style, tone and playability. I also have a NMI 1976 vintage, however, there is not comparison between this guitar and the Zager.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I must say, ease of playing. When I recieved this guitar, I opened it, tuned the b string and played it for 2 hours sraight. Absolutely, playability is my favorite part however there are many other great things about this instrument.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would place the price of this instrument in $2200-$3000 range

How would you rate customer support?
I have worked on the phone and via email with Zager Guitars and I must say I was always assured that the most important thing to Zager was that I had the right guitar and that I was completely satisfied with their products. I am.

I would definetly recommend Zager to others--if for no other reason, my personal experiences with the instrument and the people at Zager

I first heard the song 2525 on the FM channel 1969 in the jungle of Pleiku. My English was not good enough to understand everything...but later on...my English has been improved and I start to understand what was the philosophy of the song..later in life, after searching (35 years) and involved with technology and I find out Dan was ahead of his time! ..I'm sure Dan builded his guitar with "the Love of music"...Thank you!

I have purchased a Zager guitar before. I heard about Zager on the internet just by luck.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
The Zager plays much easier than my Martin and sounds as good (just different) at half the price!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
The best part about both Zager guitars I own is the ease of play. It's so much easier to form chords without having a fret buzz.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would have guessed this guitar to sell for $800.

How would you rate customer support?
I haven't needed customer support this time. When I bought my ZAD 20 OM I had a question and Dennis responded within 5 minutes. Zager support is first class.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I'm telling everyone what a great value Zager guitars are. Talk about bang for your buck!

I had a 2,000.00 guild about 30 years ago so really no comparison except this one sounds and actually looks better given the price I payed. Easier to play just like the adds say.

Fantastic. When I purchased the guitar through ebay, I asked about the soft case that came with the guitar and Dennis e-mailed me the information. He also substituted the soft case for a hard case which was way above and beyond what a person would expect.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
By all means. The guitar is way better than what's on the market for that price. I priced and compared all the top name guitars and low end guitar and this guitar is a great value for what you get. Don't drag your feet like I did. It really plays easy and a stunning looker.

Additional comments:
Thanks again to Dennis for answering all my e-mails. Not only did he answer them, they were answered within 4 hours or less. I can tell that this company cares about there customers and I will always be a loyal customer. What guitar on the market offers a life time warranty (that says it all).

A friend received a copy of "60's Gold", or somesuch, which led to a Googling of Zager and Evans, which led to the Zager Guitar website, which led to a lighter wallet. But not in a bad way.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is the finest acoustic guitar I've owned. The value is astonishing for the price; it could sell for three times what they asked.

The smell.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
$1200, easily.

How would you rate customer support?
These guys are a textbook example of how to run a web business. The site has tons of info, the many reviews inspire confidence in the product, their guarantees relieve any potential buyer's remorse, the guitar itself is without flaw, and the various goodies they send with it make you feel loved.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I'd send anyone needing an acoustic guitar to Zager in a heartbeat.

Additional comments:
I've been playing for 45 years, have a home studio, and went with the "Zager Parlor" simply to use as a "knockabout". The quality, finish, workmanship and gestalt of this guitar is far more than I expected, and my expectations were high, given previous reviews.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
I have numerous guitars - including Martins. The Zager sounds as good as any of these guitars. It has a neck shape like a Martin, and so is very easy to play.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
I don't know... It looks great, sounds great, and is easy to play. Just the right size for me to handle (not too big).

A friend told me about it....another friend took our mutual friend's comments and bought one.... I've seen and played his.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar is awesome. It plays very easy. Sounds amazing. It is gorgeous and would surpass any guitar i've owned. I haven't owned any crazy high dollar guitars...but why when you can play what i've got .....and it wasn't all that much!

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
honestly, i took advantage of the "bstock" model they had for about $20 off the normal price. They had stickers to show the "flaws." I couldn't see anything on this particular guitar in the pictures. I emailed Dennis about this guitar and he said that his dad is very picky and if he finds even a minor flaw, he will mark it down. Long story short, i got this guitar today and even with the sticker pointing to it, I can't find the issue its pointing to. I've seen guitars in stores with dings, scratches, etc. on them and still being sold for full price. This company is honest and awesome!

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Well the guitar is beautiful and sounds amazing. I was trying to compare with other brands of guitars and was easily in the mid $900's before getting to apples to apples product. But it would be hard to put the price on the customer service and extra care you receive. It's almost unbelievable but hasn't failed at all yet. THis is a no-brainer purchase. why buy elsewhere?

How would you rate customer support?
6 out of 5 stars

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
Already have told 3 friends. Seeing their guarantee first hand, experiencing their customer service, all the extras that are included with the purchase, and i haven't even got to the guitar being ridiculously incredible to play and sounds amazing!

I was shopping for a higher end Martin. While I was checking out the offers on e-bay, I saw the Zager guitars. I found the web-site and checked out all the reviews on Google and Yahoo. Saw I had nothing to loose with the offer.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This guitar surpasses the sound of my Martin D-28 as well as it's play-ability. Action is very fine and the sound is bold and fat. I have a concert Crafter...while the action on this guitar is good....the Zager is a bit better and the sound is much better. The ZAD20CE is lighter in weight as well.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Favorite part? That's tough since the whole guitar has so much to offer. You can play without hand soreness and that's good, because you don't want to put the instrument down! I WILL be using this guitar on my next recording session.

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
The sound, construction and play-ability of this guitar is equal to those guitars ranging from $1,700 to $2,200.

How would you rate customer support?
The customer support is second to none! It is so refreshing to experience customerservice like this...very rare these days.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
I WILL be showing off this guitar at up coming jam sessions and concerts. Folks need to see this guitar...folks need to hear this guitar....and most importantly...folks need to play Zager guitars!

I discovered your guitars on ebay while looking for other brands. I looked up your website and we emailed back and forth for over an hour. As you may recall, I first asked you if you made nylon string guitars. Your answer was no, and you explained the special string spacing and the comfortable neck. At 68years old, I want to learn how to play the guitar, and I thought if I started with a really good guitar, I might just stay with it until I could begin to play.

How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
Well, I have no old guitars. However, I did go to several guitar stores and looked at a few. I asked one of the staff to play a little for me so that I could get a feel for how it would sound. They really didn't want to be bothered. When I went to your website you directed me to the place where you played many songs. They were the songs that I hope to play. I especially liked the playing style. Thank you for the attention that you gave to me with the emails and the informative website. Left alone in my search, I was beginning to be discouraged. Thank you for telling me that many of the songs played were on the zad20om. I was hooked and now I have my very own zad20om guitar.

What's your favorite part about this guitar?
Wow, my favorite part of the guitar, is how it looks and feels. I can't stop smiling when I have it in my hands. This may sound frivolous, but I'm just beginning to learn how to play. I'm looking forward to your on-line lessons. If you will permit me, I'll stay in touch through all the lessons and will better answer this question later,

If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
Now you've got me. I searched youtube to hear dozens of guitars. The sounds I liked were waaaay to expensive, and when I checked the guitars I could afford, I really didn't like the way they sounded, so I didn't buy them. To answer your question, well over a $1200.

How would you rate customer support?
I guess I have answered this question earlier. If first time buyers like me, who want to get the right guitar the first time, they need to spend some time with you. I clicked the flashing box that said you were on line, and you were there. More importantly you answered about a dozen questions, and pointed me in the right direction. If you will allow me to explain a little about my career, it will tell you about customer service. As you may know, many people have had their moments in the sun. The good Lord made me really good at what at what I did. I was a manufacturing consultant, and one of my duties was to help my clients improve their customer service. For some, it allowed them to turn around their business, and stay in business. For others, it made them much more profitable. The old adage, "They don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care" will always make you successful. You took the time necessary for me to feel good about my decision. In my world, education is a transfer of knowledge, and doing something with that knowledge is a transfer of skills. I have the right guitar, now I need to learn how to play it. and,- you are still there for me. In my experience, the best rating for customer support is, YES! Superior customer support.

Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
As much as I can. Because I'm retired, my sphere of influence is limited. However, I have a friend who has one of those really expensive guitars, and I've heard him play it. I can't wait for him to get a load of MY ZAGER! I hope he'll give it back. I'll let you know how it goes.

Additional comments:
One final thought, by you spending time with me and answering my emails, and then pointing me in the right direction on your website to further inform me to make the right choice of guitar should put a smile on your face; I sure have one on my face. Thank you! 2525 still rocks. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to call, 820-332-0229. Best regards, Edd Freeman
