Having a hard time putting guitar down. My hands do not get tired of playing for hours at a time. I recently retired and haven't played in quite a while. Just glad to be playing again and it sounds great for a parlor guitar and workmanship is beautiful. Plays easier than my old Martin which made my hand hurt after only playing for short time and can play full chords which I could never do before. Thanks Zager
Could not be happier with my purchase
As most would be, it was difficult for me to purchase a guitar without holding, playing and hearing it. After reading the reviews and their 100% money back guarantee, I sent an email to The Company and Dennis Zager communicated promptly and thoroughly with me. I had to try this guitar. I purchased the Zad900ce in June of 2019. Having owned and playing this guitar now for 6 months it has lived up to and beyond my expectations, both in the action and the sound quality. My Luthiers Quote: very high quality instrument, treat it well and enjoy it.
First off the feel good stuff. This guitar came with the best case and accessories I've ever received with a new guitar. Now for the guitar. It is beautiful and plays like a dream. The tone is full and rich, the sound is vibrant, and the intonation is spot on. More than pleasantly surprised...absolutely amazed.
I recently purchased a guitar from Zager guitars. It is the best guitar I have ever owned or played. In addition In addition I want to add that the service is above excellent. I had an issue that was out of their control. However, that provided a super quick solution.
P.S I have been recommending to everyone Zager guitar. I allow them to play it to prove the easy play etc.
Action, Fret Buzz Issues... fixed
Thank you SO MUCH for your prompt attention to my "action, fret buzz" issues on my ZAD-
along with the complimentary hole plug & string set.
I was convinced it was going to take, at least some fret filing to fix.
I was amazed when the "wet towel in a baggie" video solved my year long ordeal! The top is now correctly "arched" and
I finally have the action set low... to my liking & the fret buzz is gone....I can finally honestly say "I love my Zager 900ce"! This has been a HUGE PROBLEM for me... I only wish I had contacted you about it sooner! Thanks again bro! Sincerely & Agape... Dana Sigmon
A perfect fit
The first thing I noticed when I picked up my new Zad50CE was the feel of a custom built instrument.I have never felt that feeling prior to this guitar and If you have bought production line guitars of any brand I recommend you try a custom built Zager.There is no comparison in my humble opinion. It was a perfect fit for me.I am 5ft 8 inches tall with average reach. In the past I had trouble finding all the hard to reach chords. This custom built guitar with Mr Zagers custom neck design has closed that gap. I can make chords I could not before....I suffer from arthritis in both hands and this instrument is easer to chord than any guitar I have had. I have owned like a lot of folks many guitars from martins to sears& Roebucks Harmonys. This instrument is as beautiful as it plays and sounds. The set up and action and intonation was perfect and actually in tune. Hard to believe coming from Nebraska to mid-Missouri but it was. Its an incredible instrument. I have to say also The service was a bit of a cultural shock. I was raised when handshakes where as good as a contract.I had run into a unknown health issue in the middle of our transaction of my Zager and I was not sure I could except the guitar. Dennis Jr words where Mike no worries we are here for you no matter what. I felt as part of the Zager family. The Zager family are an honest hard working family that operates with the highest level of integrity that reminds me of what call the good old days when a mans word was his bond. I hope to get to shake the hands of the Zager family someday but until then Thank you and God Bless
3 are not enough!
Got my first Zager ZAD50 about 5 years ago. Every time I brought it out, people thought it was a Martin. Then they said it plays better than a Martin! I loved it so much, I bought a ZAD80CE. Wow! This thing looks, plays, and sounds as good or better than any $3000 guitar I've ever played! The guys I play with are constantly having to re-tune, not me! I set it once with the built in tuner, and play for hours without having to re-tune.. And when I plug it in, that sweet tone is simply...louder! Whether softly finger picking or striking a hard rythm, it just sings. Finally, I got yet another black ZAD50 for my son. After I sell a few of my [brand X] guitars, I'm going for the new ZAD900CE.
Zager50 - my new friend
Received my ZAD50 today only a week after ordering. Right out of the box, sounded great. Expect it to be more awesome with progressive time with my new friend. As advertised, easy to play even harder to put down. Years ago a luthier sold me a custom instrument similar to a Gibson J-200 but needed to sell sometime later to raise money. To my ear the ZAD50 sounds better than the custom built and certainly easier to play. Zager has not seen last of me.
I received my ZAD900CE yesterday. It is beautiful. The detailing and finish are flawless. The tonality is superb. It produces a bright resonating sound, stunningly accurate and powerful. It is a wonderful instrument. I have owned a Martin and a Yamaha, but they don't compare to this guitar. I know that this review sounds over the top, but this guitar deserves top ratings.
The ZAD900CE delivers!
As a novice player, I would never have dreamed of going straight to the Zager flagship model... not in a thousand years. My respect for Denny Zager Sr. as an artist and a certified luthier, made it a rather easy decision. I thought why step through the models over time when my dream was to eventually play the ZAD900CE? Well it arrived yesterday and I was not disappointed. In fact, I was quite amazed at the quality and the looks of this guitar. The ZAD900CE did not disappoint... it delivered. I figured that if I were to learn, it may as we...ll be with the best. The lessons alone are worth the decision. We are quite blessed to have a company that actually delivers on what it promises. I cannot adequately express how thrilled I am to actually have a top of the line guitar to learn on. Thanks Denny Zager for delivering on the promise.
I'm a believer!
Returned to the guitar 5 years ago with a Taylor GS Mini. It was ok till a friend showed me his ZAD80. Tried it, had to have one. The fret board gave me room to play notes without touching other strings. But the sound! Rich and mellow! I guess its because of the beautiful woods used in the making of this guitar. Everything is top-notch, fit and finish. Proud to say, this is my last acoustic guitar. I want to pass it on to my grand daughter, I believe it will stand the test of time.
My favorite electric acoustic guitar. Period. Full Stop.
A father came home with a five dollar pawn shop guitar. An old Stella Ivory. With an unset truss rod and a rough edged and swayback fretboard, it was not easy to play, and the worn tuning pegs didnt hold for more than a few minutes of playing. His thrilled eleven-year-old picked it up and smiled while strumming open string dissonance.
He learned melodies from tunes on the radio. His fingers got sore on the way to getting calluses. Dad got him a chord book. The boy figured out which ones fit with the songs he liked.
He outgrew old Stella, pu...t her in her cardboard case and put her away to catch dust in the back of the storage closet. The happy boy became a fortunate man who enjoyed family, friends and making music with them. He was also fortunate to have played many excellent guitars and owned a few fine ones. The man had heard about Zagers for a long time before he played his friends. He wanted it. His friend told him to get his own. He did. He loves making music more than ever. He found that his Zager 80 Aura gave him the opportunity to have four very different sounding guitars in one, an enjoyably easy guitar to play which he named Zelda. He laughed as he thought about the difference between fighting old Stella and loving Zelda. He decided to dig out Stella and introduce her to his new friend. Stella was happy to meet Zelda, but she was much happier to be the favorite toy of his one year old grandson to whom he promised his Zager when the baby could hold it.
My new 900 Tobacco Sunburst
I received my new 900 a couple of days ago. It is beautiful and has a really nice tone to it. I have a company that specializes in building high end custom furniture and know great craftsmanship when I see it and this is a quality guitar. The model I ordered was out of stock so I had to wait about 7 weeks but I was clearly communicated with during the entire process. This is a great Family business and I would recommend them to anyone.
ZAD900CEOM Is an awesome guitar
I am nowhere close to a pro, but I just received my new ZAD900CEOM guitar and cannot believe how easy it to play. First night I sat down to play a little and 2 hours later I looked at the clock. It was so enjoyable I lost track of time. This guitar sounds great and looks just as good as it sounds. I would recommend Zager to anyone who wants a quality guitar.
Great products !
I bought strings for my vintage Yamaha L10 after reading about them, and I can tell you that these are the best strings that I have tried. They sound great and are very easy on the fingers. The picks are also the best that I have used. I will be a regular customer. Thanks for great products
This is a fantastic playing and Sounding Guitar
I am amazed at the quality of sound and craftsmanship of Zager guitars. I thought my playing days were coming to an end because of my Parkinson's and Neuropathy problems. But after getting my first ZAG guitar playing returned. I own now the ZAG 900 Aniversary Guitar and the ZAG 80 Full body Acoustic. I enjoy hours of playing on both of them. I learn more every day. I sold my Martin and Ibanez after getting these new guitars.
Guitar almost plays itself
I am only a beginner guitarist, having played for a year now. I now own four guitars, and my most recent before this current purchase of a Zager 900CEOM is a 1993 Special Edition Martin D28. I love this Martin but it has no electronics (I play a little in public) and it's size is too large for my occasionally painful shoulder (ie reaching around the body). Further, I am struggling mightily with bar chords and losing the battle. So when I saw the ads for this guitar, with its money back guarantee, I ordered the smaller (Orchestra Model) siz...e in the hopes of reducing pain, getting a plug in system and most importantly, getting better at my playing, especially those bar chords. I will most certainly not return it! I doubt I will purchase another guitar in my lifetime. It is stunning to look at and hold and it makes me happy just seeing it's beauty and workmanship. It is truly so much easier on my fingers, and my bar chords are doing much better thanks to this. (Sadly, it didn't work a miracle, though!) The Aura Fishman is so beyond what I need I cannot comprehend it all yet, but I am loving the tuner. The only disappointing thing about this purchase is my fault- I didn't compare the size of the body of the OM with the larger size, and to my sadness they are the same in the lower part of the guitar, which is what causes the problem with my shoulder. That pain is a bit lessened on this guitar but not absent like it is on my Yamaha Parlor guitar. Customer service during the ordering/receiving process was outstanding. In sum, I am thrilled with this guitar and this company.
