We've made our top-selling DG-8S Acoustic Pack even better by upgrading its full-sounding, easy-playing dreadnought guitar with even finer features. These include a slightly re-shaped pickguard and rosewood bridge that give a nod to the Fender acoustics of the 1970s, new 3mm dot markers that lend an elegant touch to the fretboard, and a simple-but-striking mother-of-pearl acrylic rosette.
Other features include a solid spruce top with scalloped and quartersawn "X" bracing for balanced tone, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck with 20-fret rosewood fretboard, neck and body binding, and Graphtech® Nubone™ nut and compensated bridge saddle. Pack includes everything needed to start playing, with gig bag, chromatic electronic tuner, strings, picks and strap and instructional DVD.

After trying dozens of other guitars, I bought this as a gift for a family member looking to upgrade from their student guitar. After the dealer spent a few minutes fine tuning the setup, this guitar played like an old friend. Sound is balanced, little boominess but almost (to my ears) perfect sustain. After presenting this to my family member, we played together for several hours. I liked it so much, I went back and bought another one for me!

My son bought this guitar for me for Christmas a few years ago knowing that I was interested in learning to play a guitar. I've just recently started taking lessons and this guitar is very good for a beginner like me. It's a very nice looking instrument and sounds great. I'd highly recommend this guitar for beginners in particular as it is easy to play and a great instrument for a reasonable price.
