How did you hear about this brand?
I have two other Zager Guitars. A Dreadnaught and an OM.. Both Acoustic/Electric. I use the big box unplugged and plugged. The OM is my solo performer axe--it simply fits and sounds fantastic through my Fishman amps. This Baby is for Travel.
How does this guitar compare with your old guitar, other guitars, or guitars you've tried in stores?
This is a travel guitar for when I go away not on a music tour or gig but just to have something to play every day--I get some withdrawal if I don't play for a few days.
What's your favorite part about this guitar?
It has basically the same feel as my other Zagers. You buy a Zager for playability and I want the same feel in a smaller travel guitar. With the smaller body you have some attenuation of sound projection and frets are closer together but the action feel is similar to my other two Zagers.
The case is built like a tank--just right for travel.
If you didn't know the price of this guitar what would you estimate the price to be?
I would guess about like the Little Martins or Baby Taylors.
How would you rate customer support?
There is no comparison. If you don't like it, they will take it back and pay shipping--who else is going to do that unless they really have a great product? What do you have to lose, if you don't like your Zager he takes it back--they do not want unsatisfied customers.
Would you recommend this guitar to others…if so why?
If you play every day and use differing guitar sizes for different venues and want the same sort of feel and playability over your go-to guitars, Zager is really hard to beat. The setup is everything. Denny's system is right on the money. He knows what a player really wants.
If you are a heavy handed player, you might not like the Zager action and setup. If you are struggling with Barre chords and fingerstyles and flex in your strums for a wider sound--you probably found the guitar you will play every day in a Zager. You can play for hours without sore fingers and still get big sound.
