SX Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: Scott

I have recently bought an acoustic guitar. For the past year of playing guitar self-taught, I have been using an electric, and after coming back from holiday, I knew I wanted a new acoustic (mainly because most of what I can play is Pink Floyd, so an acoustic is perfect for that).

…I would highly recommend this to guitar beginners and veterans alike…

SX Dreadnought Acoustic GuitarI went down to the local music shop, Balaam’s Music in Bury St. Edmunds, and asked if I could try the guitars.

After playing a few of them, I settled on the SX Dreadnought. At £79, this was the only one I could afford, but I do not regret my purchase at all. Let’s see why shall we?

Features:

The SX Dreadnought features a plain wooden body with a gloss finish. I’m afraid I don’t know much about the details of its features, but I do know that it has a two way truss rod, even though I don’t know what that is.

Ease of use:

It is a really easy to use guitar, anybody would be able to play it (as long as they know how to play guitar in the first place)! Tuning is done in the standard way, as with changing strings. Just 6 pegs hold them in place.

Sound Quality:

For a budget guitar, the sound quality is fantastic. Excellent bass, good tone, and good volume. Of course, a more expensive Tanglewood gives much great sound quality, but for the price, the SX cannot be beat.

Reliability:

Even though I haven’t had it long, it seems like a very sturdy guitar. It hasn’t dropped its tuning over time, and I have had no problems whatsoever.

Overall Rating:

The SX Dreadnought is a budget steel string acoustic guitar with great sound quality, ease of use and great reliability for the price.

Of course, if you can shell out for a Tanglewood, definitely do, but for the low price, it simply cannot be beat. I would highly recommend this to guitar beginners and veterans alike. An excellent guitar.
