Jody Worrell reviews the Zager EZ-Play ZAD80 Acoustic Guitar. We’ll discuss the construction, playability, and highlights of this guitar. You can watch the video to hear the ZAD80 in action.
Construction: Spruce top with beautiful abalone binding. 3 piece rosewood back with great looking zipper inlay and rosewood sides. Genuine Grover tuners.
Playability: The EZ-Play in the name is no joke. For someone coming from an electric guitar, this will be an easy transition. Consistent low action up and down the neck. This guitar achieve it’s playability from setup and not from relying on extra light strings.
Tone: Not a boatload of low end like you would find from a dreadnaught guitar designed for Bluegrass. But the low end is in sync with the high end. The guitar does a really good job for basic strumming. It has a compact and together sound for playing rhythm. It’s also does well for fingerpicking.
Overall: No reason not to check it out. Zager “offers a true 100% money back guarantee that includes shipping and handling fees both ways…No restocking fees, no hidden charges, no BS.” The workmanship and care really comes through when you’re playing the guitar. This isn’t a guitar straight off an assembly line. It matches up with the quality of much more expensive guitars from the big brands. Get one in your hands and see what you think.
The giveaway contest for this guitar has now closed. Congrats to Earl from Michigan for winning this great acoustic guitar.
