Lovely guitar and Incredible customer service
First, I must state that this is not a paid advertisement or review. I am simply sharing my experience about my experience with Zager. After very careful consideration I decided to order a Zager guitar. I liked it, but it was not quite right for me. I reached out to Dennis Jr who quickly responded, paid for shipping back and chose another guitar which he sent out right away. After 2 weeks I was convinced. After 30 days I am a convert. My fingers and elbow do not hurt anymore. My ZAD80ce OM is absoulely beautiful. Produces a beautiful rich soun...d. I do play for around 2 hrs/day now. For the record I also own 2 Taylors, which are good, and a Cordoba Nylon String guitar. My Zager is now my "go to" guitar. The Customer Service and attention I received from Dennis Jr is incredible. They do take care of their customers and will make sure you are a happy customer.
Outstanding workmanship and sound
I'm a beginning guitarist. I've been playing for a month on a cheap classical guitar and a Yamaha accoustic. The action on the classical is twice as high as my new Zager. The strings on my accoustic are so narrow I can barely form any cords that I'm trying to learn. The Zager's strings are placed a little wider making the formation of the cords I'm learning so much easier. I also don't have any pain as I don't have to push down as hard or get my left hand in a contorted position to get a cord to sing out. These are comments I have read in many...of the reviews of the Zager, but you can't appreciate them until you play on one yourself. Finally and most importantly is the workmanship. I own violins, mandolins, and violas that I can't play anymore. They are all in the same price range as my Zager. The workmanship can't come close to the Zager. From head to toe the Zager looks perfect. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. Thanks for a great guitar! Rick Anderson, Bristol, RI
Falling in love with the guitar again.
I recently upgraded to the ZAD80CE (OM size) from an earlier purchased ZAD50CE full-size. Returning to the guitar after a long absence, I wanted an instrument that was easy to play with my arthritic fingers and bum shoulder. Dennis steered me in the right direction. The quality of the instrument, comfort of playing it, and wonderful sound are the complete package. The customer service from both father and son was second to none. Thank you!
Happy to buy American-made
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to buy myself a American-made guitar and Zager was my final choice. I wanted an instrument that was beautiful with great sound to match. The Zager guitar arrived last night. My ZAD80CE is perfect! It looks beautiful and the sound was remarkable.
Great guitar and exceptional service
I had some minor concerns about my Zager guitar—I didn’t like the color. Dennis replace the guitar with one that I am very happy with. Lots of businesses promise good quality and service but don’t deliver. Dennis Zager does deliver. I highly recomend them.
Thank you for sending me one of the That beautiful black ZAD 80 CE. The Fishman electronics are superior to any I have seen for 2 to 3000 dollar guitars. Including my Martin D-18 CE. They are both easy to play. The more I play my Zager the more it ages the better it sounds. It is craftsmanship at it's finest. Thank you Denny for this beautiful instrument.
Love my Zager Guitars!!
After using several different guitars, I found Zager Guitars, and decided to give one a try. I ordered a Zager Parlor guitar, and just can't believe the beautiful depth of sound in this guitar! I just LOVE playing now, as it's easier on my fingers, and the slightly wider string spacing helps chords sound perfect. I was so happy with this guitar, I bought another one to keep with family when I visit! A money back guarantee and free shipping makes trying a Zager guitar a no brainer! The Zagers offer exactly what they advertise. Am so GLAD I gave my Zager Parlor a try....I am beyond pleased!
Beautiful guitar with strings of butter
Received my Zager ZAD80CE today, Christmas in August! Incredibly beautiful workmanship. I was able to make chords with incredible easy with strings that felt like butter under my not yet calloused fingertips. Admittedly I am a complete novice despite owning an Alvarez and Ovation guitars for more than 15yrs. Zager fits in my hand and against my body like a glove. Crazy excited to begin the journey!
The best of the best
The ZAD80 AURA CE is everything they said it would be. It is beautiful and plays like a dream. Mr Zager and his son are people of their word. I'm not a star or musician in a big name band, but I feel like I got the same treatment they would have gotten. Great guitar, great company. I highly recommend Zager guitars. My daughter liked mine so much she just ordered one!
The easiest guitar to play without fatiguing hands or fingers!
I was leery in purchasing a guitar on line without first trying it out. The ads about how easy the guitar was to play seemed unbelievable. However, with a 100% money back guarantee I took the leap. When I received my ZAD 900ce guitar I was stunned out how handsome it looked, the workmanship was top quality. The question now was how well would it play and how good would it sound. I was NOT disappointed in either case. Little hand fatigue, easy one the fingers and sounds every bit as good as my Boucher and Bourgeois for 1/2 the price!
Best guitar I've ever played
The Zager company makes fine instruments..
I own many guitars...Martin hd28...Martin D45..Martin D18...Gibson dove...Gibson jumbo...A larrive custom made guitar...I've always been a Martin lover...still will be...But my new Zager is the easiest playing guitar I've ever had in my hands..it's craftsmanship is second to none... beautiful guitar...case has a built in humidifier and gauge...high quality case..
The professionalism of this company is outstanding...Dennis the owners son emailed me back and forth from my purchase to delivery..really nic...
My first guitar
I am 68 and decided I would take up guitar. I looked for an easy playing, easy tuning guitar and chose the Zad80. The purchasing experience was helpful and personal. The product is outstanding. The post purchase surprise of a goody bag including the lesson package was a nice touch. Very satisfied.
Zager 900 CE don't knock it before you try it... Honestly
I finally wanted to splurge for a high-end guitar. I live in Harlingen Texas a small town near the border. I'm not a performing artist and I only learned about Zager scrolling the internet for hours. I'll be honest at first I only found the positive reviews and placed my order. After more searches I found the negative reviews which made me nervous. The one thing all the negative reviews had in common was that they were pure speculation almost zero people with negative comments have actually held a Zager. And people don't believe that customers...are swapping for big name brands. I had purchased a Taylor 324ce builders edition. That is a $3,000 guitar. Beautiful to look a nice neck but the sound had no life to it whatsoever. I would be happy to send out proof of all this anybody who requests it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I did get nervous about my princess after I received my guitar and emailed Dennis Jr considering sending it back. Within minutes I had a return label emailed to me no questions asked. I'm a decent player but my brother who is visually impaired has been playing many years. I played the guitar for him over the phone to get his opinion even over the phone he said it was such a beautiful sounding guitar. I think I didn't want to believe in myself and was trying to talk myself out of it but after playing it I was sold on it. Believe what you want to believe feel free to email me I can send you copies pictures of my Taylor guitar that I purchased and resold. The sound on the Zager is beautiful. Now I completely understand the reviews of people saying what do you have to lose if you don't like it you send it back. Dennis Jr will reply to your email night or day in minutes not days or weeks. I'm actually kind of laughing at myself because these are exactly what the reviews sounded like that people say they are rigged. Like I said earlier feel free to email me I won't put my phone number out there but I will reply to anybody's questions send you pictures.
I got my zad900ce two weeks ago..It is a beautiful instrument just like the pics I saw online. I was disappointed at first in the volume when I got it out of the case but after playing it a while I changed the strings and man did it come alive. It has consistently gotten louder and better sounding as I play it more. I have owned a Martin d28, Taylor 414ce, and Tacoma and this guitars quality is as good or better than them. It came setup from the factory better than any I have owned.The Aura pickup system is amazing. I must admit I was hesitant ...to order online having never played a Zager before but it has been an enjoyable experience. Dennis Zager is quick to answer all questions and my emails are always promptly responded to. With their money back guarantee I figured I couldn't go wrong and was glad that I gave them a try. Paul
Zager Parlor acoustic guitar
I don't have enough adjectives to describe this sweet guitar. I own 3 other acoustics - all fine instruments. Whether it is the neck structure or the string quality on this Parlor Zager - it really is easier to play for longer. After first time practicing with it; I can say it fits me better than anything I've picked up. Beautiful deep earthy sound. The sustain lasts a few nanoseconds longer than my other guitars ... it fades rather than drops.. so chord changes sounds smoother. Very, very happy.
Absolutely beautiful guitar
I’m 64, retired last year . Not a great musician buy any measure , I just love to play never out in public . Like jazz and blues mostly . Own a D’Angelico , Less Paul and a 50 year old Univox. All of my guitars play incredibly easy . I looked at Gibson’s, Martins, And Taylors . All incredibly well built instruments . I was looking at reviews and found the Zad80 . The value of this guitar compared to the others was great . The way they were built and the 100% money back guarantee sold me completely , nothing to loose . Man I guess I’m just not a...rticulant ( if that’s a word ) to really gives this guitar justice . The sound is amazing , so mellow but so sharp and perfect . I lowered the action slightly because I play jazz chords mostly . Easy to do and it play perfect ! If you add to this that it is a piece art and Henry was great to deal with I would tell anyone to buy this guitar . Fabulous deal .
The perfect guitar!!
I just recieved a Zager Parlor acoustic/electric guitar on July 28, 2020. Not only is it absolutely beautiful with its African Mahogany all wood body, and Fishman electronics, it is way easier to play than my Taylor GS Mini. The easy play strings are much easier on my fingers. I am a short 4'10" small framed woman and this guitar fits me perfectly. My son and I compared the Taylor GS Mini, the Ovation and this Zager for sound quality and the Zager Parlor won hands down. It came with a beautiful hard bodied case that has a humidity indi...cator. I also recieved a very nicely padded leather strap with the Zager name on it, several picks, a truss tool, a capo, a clip-on tuner and a great t-shirt. Who else gives all those items with their guitars. I am also impressed with his warranty, and return policy and free shipping to and from. The communication with his son was almost immediate every time I emailed him. He was very helpful too. Would I purchase from this company again?? Abdolutely!!! Thanks!!!!
