Here's what Zager have to say about the ZAD50CE model:


Possibly the last guitar you’ll ever buy.  60 years of playing, performing and teaching guitar has given Denny an advantage over the majority of guitar builders today. Denny understands the demands of the professional player because he is one. He discovered there are certain key elements that make a great guitar, and with that knowledge he created the Zager ZAD50 Series.  Elements like solid wood construction, high quality hardware, a custom neck design that feels good in your hand, string spacing that allows you to move faster on the fretboard, that simultaneously prevents buzzes and rattles, combined with a special bracing system that produces one of the best sounds in the guitar industry today.

In designing the ZAD50 Denny wanted to build a guitar that had the special details you see in only $2500 instruments.  Things like a Venetian cutaway box design that allow you to slide your hand down low “into” the guitar for easier playability.  Hand scalloped bracing that gives the guitar a more powerful robust sound.  Hand filed frets that allow your fingers to glide over the fretboard without chafing your fingertips.

 

For 2016 Denny called Bob Fishman at Fishman Electronics (considered the best guitar electronics company in the world) and ordered the Fishman 60 Series electronics package used in our $1500 ZAD80 Series guitars.  The electronic transducer system and automatic tuner allow you to plug into any amplifier or PA system and play it like a full blown electric.  The onboard equalization package provides infinite sound possibilities with a built in automatic tuner that tunes your guitar in a fraction of the time it takes using conventional methods.  When you’re tired of electric simply unplug and you’ll have the traditional sound of an acoustic.

Pros using the ZAD50CE on stage say it matches or betters $2000 instruments, but with easier playability and a much lower price since you’re buying direct from our workshop in Lincoln, Nebraska. Be sure to read artist comments and magazine reviews on the 50 as it consistently rates in the top 5% of acoustics made world wide.
