03/07/2012 Just had to let you know how much I appreciated the qiuck response from Denny Jr and his help in recommending the right guitar for me. I pruchased the Zager ZAD 20 and was so amazed at the ease of the finger board. I am so anxious to start playing again after 25 years. My husband looked at it and I could hardly get it away from him. He just went on and on about the quality of sound, the fingering ease and the quality of construction and beauty. He was also very fascinated with the customization. The sound is even better than his $3000.00 Gibson. I have been able to start again without joint pain in my hands, and the feel of a guitar that "fits" me, instead of using his. He is learning dobro that i purchased him for christmas and I can't wait to join in on the casual jams that we have instead of staying home or being a bystander!! Thanks to you for your passion to help the rest of us to be able to pursue our passion for music. What you are doing truly deserves recognition. I am so thankful that I found you. Will let you know how I am progressing. With much thanks and joy,

03/06/2012 DEAR DENNIS, WHEN I GOT HOME TODAY, GUESS WHAT WAS WAITING LOOKING UNDAMAGED AND INNOCENT. I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED A MORE WORN BOX AFTER ALL THESE DAYS MISSING. ANYWAY UPON UNPACKING THE GUITAR IT LOOKS GREAT. EVEN BETTER THAN LOOKS- IT SOUNDS AND PLAYS LIKE I HAD IMAGINED. THANKS SO MUCH, THIS GUITAR IS A KEEPER! SINCERELY,

03/03/2012 I am at the end of my 6 month period of lesson access and I can't tell you how much I have learned from you. From the basic anatomy of the guitar, to the proper way to restring, and I have a library of songs that I can refer to and continue the process of learning how to play. I have gotten more in 6 months than I would have from several years of lessons anywhere else. I started the lessons with the purchase of a ZAD20 that I am very happy with and I know it will last beyond my lifetime. I have told friends that play about your website and I hope they will log on if for nothing else but to watch you play and get hooked on your style just like I have. I wish I could tell you how to make the site better but I really can't. I know this sounds corny but you've really made a difference in my life. Thank you for all your work, advice and for sharing your knowledge on the art of playing the guitar. Good luck on your run!

03/01/2012 Hi denny and gang. Just wanted you to know that I played my new guitar when I was leading worship for our family camp this last weekend. It sounded real nice in the sound system and I got some good comments on it. I also have a few people that tried it out and you may hear from them in the future. You just may have gained a bigger following in Minnesota! Thanks again,

02/23/2012 Dennis, Received the ZAD80 today. It's great! So suffice it to say I'm very pleased. Thanks again for the quick response to my inquiry and speedy shipping. By the way, my son Nick will be thrilled...no more competing for the 20CE! Have a great weekend!

02/20/2012 I LOVE THIS GUITAR. Thank you so much. I took it out of the box and immediately started playing comfortably; it feels like a $1799.00 Martin I almost purchased....glad I waited!

02/20/2012 Dennis, The baby zad Zager arrived yesterday and I'm almost speechless. It is PERFECT for me. I am beginning to learn fingersytle and the Zad 80 was a bit awkard to learn that on. Even though I love the Zad 80 and the sound is absoutely beautiful I wanted to learn ingerstyle on a smaller guitar and then when I got the hang of it to start playing on the big one again. This smaller guitar fits me like a glove and it makes the learning process so much easier. God, you people make fantastic guitars. I wish the whole world knew about your company. Thank you also for the box of martin strings. That was so generous of you to toss those in. They come in very handy. I used your dad's tutorial to change a set for the first time last week and I did fine. It was a little frustrating at first, but I got hte hang of it. Thanks so much for all you have done to make this expereince so pleasurable for me. If it wasn't for your company I would never have kept going with the playing. Now, I can't go a day without playing. I practice 2-3 hours a day and love every minute. Well, almost every minute. There have been trying times when I wanted to slap the guitar I was so frustrated. You must know how that goes. Again thanks so much, and tell your Dad he does a great job!!!! Sincere Regards

02/20/2012 Denny I just received my new guitar and it is phenomenal. Aside from the sound and appearance being perfect it is unbelievably playable. I always had difficulty making those 'stretch' moves with my left hand and as age and a little stiffness intruded I pretty much gave up playing. This is a new beginning. Thanks also for the help in selection of an appropriate instrument for the type of music I want to play. You were right on with the sound!

02/14/2012 Howdy Folks............. Still loving this guitar, yesterday was the first time I had played for hours straight in over a decade. I played three hours, and when I left my buddies house I knew I'd be playing some more when I got home, and I did. I like the soft style Denny plays in the instructional videos. Until the next time............. Peace and happiness...........

02/12/2012 Denny's Sr. & Jr., I just received my ZAD-20CE. It arrived right on schedule (I arranged to work from home to be here for delivery). The guitar is beautiful and plays as E-Z as advertised. The sound is rich and full, without the tone thinness found in "reasonable" priced acoustics. A co-worker, who owns one of your guitars, was praising it to the skies. I had to see for myself and went to your website. Initially, I couldn't believe the prices for the guitars, especially how you described them. There seemed to be too much value for the price. Then I started reading the testimonials. Unbelievably positive. You couldn't do better if you wrote them yourselves. And a 100% money back guarantee. OK, I was convinced and ordered the 20CE.
Now for a little background. I got my first guitar in 1964, an electric Zimgar with Segovia amp, from a pawnshop in the East Village (NY). It played and sounded as bad as expected. Took some lessons, but couldn't even play a major C chord, got discouraged and quit. A few years later, my father bought me a used Gretsch Tennessean and Thunderbird amp. Took some lessons, got discouraged, quit. In the seventies, I bought a white, Gibson SG. Took some lessons, stunk, quit. In 1977, I bought an Ibanez Standard, which I have to this day. Still can't play worth a damn. Some years ago, I bought an Ovation Adamas. My niece has it now. I'm now 55, had guitars for 41 years and STILL can't play ONE stinking song!!! The problem is that I discourage quickly if things aren't working out quickly. I've had lessons (never last long) with several different teachers and enough lesson books for a small library. My goal is NOT to be a guitar monster, but rather have the ability to sit in with my niece and nephew (who can play any instrument) and jam in a listenable fashion. If a 12 bar blues in E is called, I'd have the ability to play along (as an example). I feel that your guitar is the first step. My laptop gets your online lessons perfectly at work, which has a T1 line, but at home I use the wireless card. I'll let you know how things go. Thanks for the great guitar.

02/11/2012 Denny: Thanks for the reply. I bought my first guitar at the age of 46. I am 53 now. It is a Mitchell dreadnought. I ordered my Zager last December. No comparison. In the last 6 months or so I picked up the Mitchell twice. That lasted about 5 minutes. I can play much longer with the Zager. It is not unusal to go for two hours or more. I am making much faster strides in my learning. It is a joy to play. Sadly I don't think I will be singing along with Mitch any more. Thanks

02/10/2012 Hi Dennis, UPS got it here Friday afternoon. I am very impressed. It does play very easily. I found myself playing difficult tunes that I had not played in years with ease. Notes were coming out cleanly and quickly. I think the most important thing was that it took the frustration out of playing. I am also very pleased with the intonation. There is nothing more annoying than knowing you are tuned correctly and having fretted notes coming out sharp. The intonation seems to be great all the way up the neck. Now, when it comes to the string separation, this is where the genius is. I really expected this to throw me off. Instead, it made the guitar easier to play from the very first chord. What a difference! Thank you very much for the bag of goodies, too. Thanks,

02/08/2012 I am very happy with the instrument and it has already astounded many of my fellow players who have tried it. At least two that I know of have, or will shortly purchase one. Thanks,

02/05/2012 Denny & Dennis, I received my ZAD20CE a couple of days ago. This is the 10th guitar in the current collection, and the first ZAGER. I've been playing for 40 years and all 4 of my kids play. With the exception of a Peavey, we have Fenders and Gibsons and we have played all the major brands. I can tell you without reservation this is an amazing guitar, especially at the $495 price point. Beautifully set up. We've had all of our guitars professionally set up by a luthier for a "name brand" made in San Diego and a shop in Bellevue WA (they do customs for Randy Jackson, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains etc.) You guys are absolutely dead on with your philosophy...it's about playability, not branding or cost. If anybody reading this is even remotely considering a ZAGER, put everything else aside and ask yourself what you really want in a guitar. If it's playability, not paying big bucks for the name on the headstock, this is money well spent.

01/31/2012 I'm a beginner. I've been taking lessons since late January and I've been saving to buy a Zager since I stumbled across your website after doing some google searches. My teacher said I was CRAZY to buy a used guitar from eBay but I had faith in the Zager name. After my first lesson since receiving the guitar, my teacher asked how much I paid. I got a great deal, paid less than $200 shipped with the hardshell case. He said that if I told him I paid $1000 for it he would have thought it was a good deal. I LOVE this guitar! Even though I didn't buy it directly from you, I feel like it was, in a way, made for me. Thank you for your amazing product. By the way, I'm preaching the gospel of Zager. I've already gotten three people in this area to say they're gonna buy one! Sincerely,

01/31/2012 WOW! Received my ZAD20 Black today. Fast delivery, excellent guitar. I am a raw beginner with very sore fingers but not for long. My friend who plays professionally had this comment once he had played the ZAD, "This is a Cadillac, no, even a Jaguar!" After two and a half hours of playing he and another 'picker' confirm that the ZAD would stand in with thier Martins or any other instrument. Excellent volume, excellent clarity, easy comfort, excellent playability. Well, you get the idea i'm sure. I will be learning on "The best!" Thanks for the 'extras' as well. Watch for the referrals!! GOD Bless.......

01/27/2012 Howdy Good Peoples, I purchased a DR-41 almost 2 months ago. Not having played in almost 10 years, I am doing things I never could before. Just having a ball. The action is great and fits my hand nice for having small hands. I hit the harmonic notes on the 12th fret and the sound resonates for what seems to be infinity. My next major purchase will be a new computer, I've watched Denny in a couple of videos on this computer, but I need to get the new computer with updated Video Player, to really take advantage of the online lessons, no printer with this old hag either. I have the computer I want picked out and will put 1/2 down this weekend and finish paying for it and pick it up June 9th. I have only used a pick 2 or 3 times. At 48 yrs. old I have premature arthritis already and the finger picking style Denny uses is just what I want, it allows more sounds and a softer tone yet you can still get edgy. I'll be glad when I get older that I dropped the pick. I probably won't be able to hold one when I'm 60+ and it will be much easier to learn that style now. I work with elderly people as a chef in Assisted Living and change is not a welcome notion when ya get that old. We had an older lady there that was over 100 yrs old, she used to play piano in the silent movies. We have a piano there and she used to be able to sit down and play beautifully with no sheet music at all~!!!!! I'm sure you got more than one e-mail so I'm done. Thanks Again.......Keep up the excellent work.......Peace............Tim

01/25/2012 Wow! I am impressed! I was at work and the guitar came today. As I opened the case, I was impressed. As I took out the guitar and looked at it, I was more impressed. Then I tried playing it, WoW! Easy play is right! I have played guitar since 1976 and had a few guitars in that time, but this one is the best. I wish I had heard about them a long time ago. I can tell that I am going to enjoy this, more as I play it. Thanks for the prompt shipment and answering my questions before I purchased it. I look forward to looking more into your on line lessons as well. God Bless you as you continue your good work.

01/24/2012 Hi Dennis, What little time I have spent with it I have thoroughly enjoyed. Love the sound and the action alot more than the Fender guitar it is replacing. If I enjoy it as much as I do the ZAD-20CE I have, and I am sure I will, I am in for some quality playing time. I want to thank you and your father again for the quality instruments you sell, for your very fast service and best guarantee on the market. Received the guitar two days after ordering it. That is fast service. Thank You,

01/21/2012 Denny Jr.: Thank you very very much. Appreciate the quick and thorough response to my question. You guys are the very very best. I am learning a new song every week and playing the ZAD20 is pure pleasure. I am now tackling a difficult song, Deacon Blues (Steely Dan) Becker & Fagen. Never in my wildest dreams believe that I would ever be able to play a song with so many difficult chords and chord changes but the ZAD20 makes that dream a reality. It really gives me the confidence to tackle the harder songs. Aloha

01/21/2012 Hi Dennis, Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you. I believe my wife let you know I had some medical problems and that we need to ship the first guitar with the surface scratch back to you. BTW, the new guitar is absolutely beautiful, both in appearance and sound. My wife even commented at the beauty of the sound, and that?s going some for her to notice and say how really nice it sounds. I couldn?t sleep last night and this morning, so I wanted to get in touch with you to first thank you for your very excellent service and your?s and Denny Sr. craftsmanship and stunning set-up of this new guitar. It is without a doubt the best instrument I?ve ever played in my 30+ years of playing the guitar. Magnifico!!! Bellisimo!!!! I can?t use enough positive adjectives to describe this work of art. I think my Ovation and Fender are going to be collecting some dust being relegated to being alternate tuning guitars with very little playing time in the future. Again, I am stunned at the sound that I?m getting with this instrument. This is the best buy on any guitar I?ve ever seen and I?ve seen, heard and played plenty in my day. You can bet that I?ll be showing off and ?singing the praises of your instruments? as well as, your great service. Let me just end by saying that on a scale of 1-10, this EZ-Play Zager ZAD-80CE is a 100 that?s right ?one hundred?!!!! I look forward to hearing from you and please feel free to use this letter in your testimonials, as others should know and realize that what Zager Guitar promises in their advertisements is 100% on the money and a great bet for a beginner, just starting out or even an ?old timer? like me with over 30 years playing experience. Thanks so much Denny Sr. and Dennis Jr. and much success to you in the future. You can bet the next guitar I purchase will be the EZ-Play Zager ZAD-20CE to hear what the Spruce Tops sound and play like, if it?s anything like the ?80CE? I can?t wait till I can get the ?piggy bank? filled again to get the ?20CE? next. All the best to all those at Zager Guitar and continued prosperity!!! Sincerely,
