Epiphone Acoustic Guitar: DR-100
by Guitar Guru
“Great, Cheap Guitar for Beginners”
The Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic Guitar is a great guitar for beginners.
At ~$99 it is inexpensive enough to not discourage the would-be guitarist, and with its select spruce top and mahogany body and neck it produces a full enough sound to encourage the beginning guitarist to keep practicing. Note: The term "select spruce top" is used to refer to laminates of superior quality...that is with no "voids" between the layers.
Epiphone’s focus on affordable quality is apparent in the DR-100 which is priced low but still a decent, good acoustic guitar. A word of warning; the DR-100 will not sound right out of the box unless you replace the strings that it comes with. Chances are you will need to use lighter weight strings until the guitar is broken in. But once it is broken-in, you can add weight until you achieve the sound you are looking for. It also has a tendency to go out of tune quickly, especially if it is aggressively played.
Being a ‘not too expensive’ guitar, the DR-100 is a great guitar to take around with you if you travel or camp, especially if you seek a full-sized guitar versus a smaller travel-sized guitar. It holds up pretty well in all conditions and is inexpensive enough that you won’t feel guilty if you do injure it. This is great news for the beginning guitarist who may be a bit hard on their instrument.
