All I can say it was more than I hoped for, I have used a Alvarez Yairi for years, this Zager truly is what they advertise, and my new go too acoustic.
I just received my 4th Zager guitar, a ZAD 900E 12, and its an unbelievable guitar. i never thought that any guitar would look and sound better than my other Zagers, but this one far exceeds anything I have including my Gibsons, Guild, Mossman , and Ovation The neck and action make it very easy to play, and the sound is bright. I understand there are some people out there who bad mouth Zager guitars. I don't know what they are playing, but all of mine are far superior to anything else I own. Just to be clear, I am not affiliated with Zage... Read morer in any way, except for being a very satisfied customer. i contacted them at every turn, and was treated with courtesy and respect. Their customer service is second to none. If you are a beginner, or a seasoned veteran, I would recommend Zager guitars to everyone.
Nicer than I expected.
It took a while from the time I ordered the ZAD900 until I received it. Well worth it. From the first look at the case quality, I could see that this was going to be a special addition to my collection. I own Taylor's, Gibson's, Ovation and others and by far this piece is of exceptional quality. Even freshly built with time needed to mature, it sounded fabulous. The strap and accessories were a nice touch also. Thanks Denny.
Another Zager for my collection
I just ordered my 4th Zager guitar, a ZAD 900 12, and I can't wait to have it delivered; it won't be ready until July. Good things come to those who wait. I also have a ZAD 50 CE, an ZAD 80 CE, and a Parlor Size African Mahogany Electric, and I love them all; great sound, great action, and great looks. As much as I love these instruments, I think I'm most impressed with the customer service. I had a million questions each time I ordered, and each was answered with care and concern. I have to admit I have been a bit of a pain in the butt, b... Read moreut the folks at Zager didn't seem to be bothered, and treated me with respect. I couldn't recommend this company or its products any more strongly. The guitars are top of the line, and the major companies should beware, as the quality of all the guitars and the company in general far exceeds anything they have to offer. It has been my distinct pleasure to write this review of a company who demands excellence
Excellent Acoustic/Electric - better than Martin/Gibson
I recently bought ZAD80CEOM. I sold my Larrivee LV-10 Walnut 2003 ($2,700) and used the funds to get this one. Same model style, but the Zager plays easier and sounds better. I stopped by local guitar store (Greensboro, NC) yesterday and tried all the high priced Martins/Gibsons/Taylors. I must confess the Zager guitar I have plays better, easier and sounds better than any of those 2,000-4,400 priced guitars. Sadly, the new Martins are made in Mexico. I am so happy I went with your brand. In Church, I just plug into system and it sounds fantastic. Keep up great work!
ZAD80OM acoustic Gorgeous Guitar
I recently had the good sense to try out a Zager guitar because of the easy guaranteed 30 day trial and no shipping fee returns. I purchased a Zad50OM and it was so beautiful I decided to upgrade my purchase to a Zad80OM. As an older beginner I plan on this being my only guitar. I loved all the abalone and the warm tone of the 80. The 80 arrived and the condition was not up to the quality I expected after getting the 50 in perfect condition. I sent pictures and got a response within 15 min. My return label arrived later on that
Great Folks to do Business with!
I received my Zager ZAD-80CE yesterday. Out of the box, it was set up and in tune with excellent intonation. It looks better than its pictures on the Zager website. Its slim neck feels good; I'm adjusting to the width of it very well. I have not yet plugged it into my Fishman Loudbox. Unamplified, the sound is rich and full and compares very favorably with my other acoustics: Favilla acoustic, Fender Acoustisonic Telecaster, Gramann York #63, Martin D-28, Ovation Legend and Takemine P-5. The outstanding package of accessories blew me away. I highly recommend the ease of my transaction and prompt delivery. I also commend Zager for prompt replies to email. I'm pleased to add the Zager ZAD-80CE to my collection.
EASY TO PLAY
To begin, the first ZAD80CE I ordered was damaged in shipping. The folks at Zager didn’t hesitate, they emailed a return shipping label and the day after Christmas my replacement guitar arrived. Because there were things I put off doing due to the Christmas holiday, my idea was to plug the guitar into the amp, play it for 15 minutes to test it, then do what needed to be done. That session turned into 1 hour and 15 minutes. This is an easy guitar to play even with 75-year-old hands. Great guitar, Great Company!
I have been looking around for a deal on this guitar for quite awhile. Of course, money is always an issue and the price was fairly steep for me. I play at home and don't necessary need the electronics. I happen to find an "80", no electronics, at a price of $750 and in excellent condition with the case. The reason I'm writing is to express how much I love this guitar, especially the rosewood, but even mores so the cedar. I have a Martin DM but I'm looking at one of the mahogany 50's to replace it. Thanks again.
I love my guitars and this company
I just got my 3rd Zager guitar, a ZAD80CE, and I'm in love again. This guitar is beautiful and plays like a dream--I love the neck, and the action. The sound is very mellow, and it is very easy to play. The electronics are great, and really enhance the sound. As usual, the customer service is the best. I had many questions, and my emails were returned promptly with answers to all my questions. Again, I am very impressed with this company, and would recommend it to the novice and experienced player
It’s a soft touch
Love my Zager guitar. It plays as beautiful as it looks.It is so easy on my novice fingertips and has allowed me to practice more. The onboard electrics opens up so many possibilities.
A Perfect Guitar.....
....for throwing in the back of the van and playing at the beach or at a crowded party where the safety of your decent Martin or Gibson would be a concern.
The Poly finish on this Indonesian made Martin knockoff is thin enough to protect the wood, and thick enough to ensure the wood never truly opens up properly, so the sound will remain tight and will only make minimal improvements over time.
If you want a perfect, all solid wood beater, this is your guitar.
If you want a guitar to get better with age, and be made with first-rate wood, buy Martin, or Gibson, or Santa Cruz.
A Great gift to myself

Merry Christmas to you. I received my Zager om guitar and love it. I have been playing for 50 years and I am able to play things on this guitar that I have been unable to play cleanly on other guitars. I have two martins, a Gibson And an Ibanez. I highly recommend your guitar for clean playing and a great tone. It was my present to myself so thanks again.
True functional art
I’ve had Yamaha and Fender guitars, but stopped playing a very long time ago. Retired and in my 60s, I was enamored by the Zager easy play ads. I took the plunge, and I’ve never been happier. The 900 is a true piece of beautiful artwork. It IS easy to play with my now arthritic hands, and sound incredible. I bought an amp and now amazed at the Fishman Aura technology. So many extras were included, my questions were answered rapidly by their superb customer service. Treat yourself! You can’t go wrong with their incredible craftsmanship.
Beautiful guitar , sound and looks .
I got a great guitar at a great price , customer service is exceptional , great people to deal with and a quality product , delivered on time , sounded great right out of the case , I don't think you can go wrong with a Zager guitar .
