Joe Vitale and the Guitar That Sounds Like a Piano

After finding $12,500.00 in an old Paypal account last week, I went on a spending spree.

I bought everything from a Bentley jacket (to start pretending I’m a Bentley GT owner) to a humidor (for my new hobby of cigar smoking) to a

rare magic trick (which I can’t wait to show you one day), to a gift of money for Nerissa, and more.

One of the other things I bought was a new guitar. I have several, but you can’t have too many. If you play the guitar, you know what I mean.

This new guitar is a Zager. It’s designed to be, well, easier to play. The website that described it was written beautifully so I decided to order one.
I was telling Pat O’Bryan about it and he asked when he could see it. I told him I hadn’t heard from the seller yet. Pat’s eye-brows went up and I smelled his concern. Suddenly I started to feel buyer’s remorse; that sinking feeling in your gut that says maybe you made a really bad decision.

I wrote to the seller and almost instantly got back an email. It had to be one of the most reassuring emails ever received after a sale. Not only did it confirm my order, but it included testimonials, which essentially made me feel excited all over again about my new guitar. Here’s part of the email:

Hi Joe,
We’ll take care of you…no worries. I’m showing you purchased your guitar Friday night and it went out Monday morning after Denny completed a final inspection on it.

Warmest regards,
Dennis Zager Jr.

Recent customer testimonial:
04-07-2006 Hello Dennis, I received your guitar today and what a great instrument it is! I really like it a lot. It almost sounds like a piano. Very crisp and articulate, perfectly in tune. A very musical guitar! I like the fact that it’s light weight. The neck is very easy to play everywhere, I can bend the strings easily and there’s no buzz at all! The sound is focused, full range, nice bottom, solid mids, rich and round highs. Plus, I think it looks awesome! Thank you so much, I really appreciate that guitar. Thank you again.” — Andre Coutu, Lead guitarist for Celine Dion, Las Vegas, Nevada

I was impressed. Most sellers would write and just say, “Got your order.” The people at Zager Guitar wrote a personal message, gave me the tracking number for the guitar, and added a lot of emotionally supportive links, including a testimonial from Celine Dion’s lead guitarist!

I need to model this approach to doing business. Maybe you do, too. Now I’m really excited to get that guitar!

Acoustic Zager Guitars

Product: Zager ZAD 50
Price Paid: $ 595
Email: Parolmanmarkyahoo dot com
Submitted 02/03/2012 at 06:36am by Mark Alexander
Features :
My Guitar was made someother county. Has a solid spruce top, dreadnought body style, “Black Beuty” It came with Grover tuners and the neck was a thinner than the 1st crappy guitar i owned. It also had the Zager EZ-Play. I also bought a hard case that came with a temp and humidity gauge. The guitar came with a free set of strings and a shirt. This seems to be a lot of features for a low cost guitar.
Sound :
I amd have been playing for about 3-4 mos. Sound was good to me, much better than my first guitar. I had my music teacher play it and he told me it sounded good. My wife likes the sound better. I noticed a little string buzz but usually happens when i get lazy and do not chord right.
Action, Fit, & Finish :
Everything seemed good out of the case. I just played it without tuning. My music teacher played it just tuning very little. I have looked my guitar over for flaws b/c of the low cost, but it is in great condition.
Reliability/Durability :
I have had the guitar only since Thanksgiving, but it seems to be a solid guitar. The tuners are Grover so i assume they’ll hold up. the finish is shiny and looks to be there for a while.
Customer Support :
This is the part that sold me on another. I was trying to order the guitar over the net,but could not get it to work. I called Zager and placed the order over the phone, easy and friendly. The website said I could send it back 100% warranty so I bought the guitar. I got an email telling me the when to expect it, my address was wrong so i called back-Zager corrected the address and sent another email to confirm. I emailed them questions and within 30 min.or so the emailed me back. Very helpful and friendly.
Overall Rating :
I have only played for about 3-4mos.all the practice hurt my fingers i owned an alpine cheep guitar. I was looking for something to help searching on google. i came up on Zager’s website. I read all i could on them, then compared cost. I almost bought a $1,200 Martin but since I was new i Went with cost. Zager advertised easy play and it was true. MY FINGERS NO LONGER HURT after playing. now i play longer which leads to better playing. I feel when i get better I still may get Martin but just to own one more than anything. So far Zager has been good. If my wife picks up some guitar it will be the maker i am going with for her.

GUITAR SHOOTOUT: Martin D-35 vs. Zager ZAD-80 Review

I had NO idea!

I have been playing since I was 10…54 years ago. I have 4 guitars, but I always wanted a MARTIN!

So in a moment of weakness, I splurged $2400 on a mint D-35 Martin on E-bay. One day after that I saw a ZAGER guitar in E-bay. Never heard of it. I was directed to their website….started to get curious. Saw the photos and testimonials. More curious. Saw the reviews, got so curious I called…they had ONE left. I ordered it. Am I nuts, or what? The Martin had not even arrived yet!

Last weekend was the shoot-out. Both side by side against the coffee table. Without considering the cost here are my impressions:

The Martin & the Zager both score equally in craftsmanship, quality of construction and finish, that is to say excellent.

The Martin is subdued, wheras the Zager jumps out at you like a flashbulb going off. It’s striking. It’s not subtle. That impressed me.

As far as sound, the Martin sounds good, but is almost muffled compared to the Zager which has a sound I have never heard in a guitar before, both full, but bright sounding…a sound that was very pleasing.

The Martin was easy to play, but I already have guitars that are as easy to play. The Zager is in another league…no guitar I have ever played is as easy to play as this one.

As a conclusion, It beats the Martin at half the cost.

Thank you.

Ed Walter
