I have been playing the guitar for about five years.

I bought this guitar new at Guitar Center for about $350, but I have gotten better and bought a Gibson SG, but this is a fantastic beginner's guitar. I bought it because I loved Squiers, and when I first saw this guitar, it made all the other beginner guitars on the wall look cheap (Other Squiers and Epiphones etc.).

The tone of this guitar is good. For a Squier, it's amazing! The guitar felt great at the time, but I like that Gibson and Epiphone feel more, because it has a fatter neck, which is my preference, but it feels fantastic for Fender and Squier lovers. The electronics are solid, and the guitar is easy to play.

There are a couple things I don't like about this guitar. When I purchased this guitar and brought it back home, it needed a setup. The E, A and G string were buzzing and were always getting out of tune when I bended them and played chords with the guitar. Also, when you first buy the guitar, the strings need to be replaced with better ones, because the standard ones are not so great.

For a Squier, the quality of this guitar is unheard of. It is made with decent materials. The pieces fit together pretty well, but one of the knobs fell off a week after I played the guitar. I would worry a bit if I dropped this guitar. but not too much. The wood is awesome quality for a Squier!

Great guitar for the money, a beginner's dream. It was worth the money, and good value. Change the strings when you first buy the guitar, and a setup!

UTILIZATION

This is the most amazing instrument I have ever played! I have owned just about every brand of guitar made that is available left handed. I have always been looking for that one guitar that just fit and not having to hear you'll get use to it. I ran across Patrick Hufschmids brand by accident and was quite intrigued. After months of conversations with Patrick and him agreeing to make a lefty for me the process began. I could only go by what I read and saw on the internet due to the fact that he is located in Switzerland. After a couple months of waiting I received a guitar that oozed quality and feel. I have never had a guitar melt in my hands upon first picking it up and this one did. No plastic pieces on this gem. I have never felt like a guitar just fit until now. I have nothing negative to say about it.

SOUNDS

I run through a British Made Gibson Super Goldtone 30 watt Tube Amp dual channel switchable
I'm using a TC Electronics G-System with a TC Nova Drive and 2 expression pedals
As far as sound I can produce just about any style you want to create.
Settings? You could spend all day listing this stuff.........
As far as suiting a style of music, I have not found it's limitations.......

OVERALL OPINION

The thing I really liked was that the neck and body both came from the same Mahogany Rift-Sawn board and both are one piece not glued pieces to make a body or neck. Most neck and bodies don't even come from the same forest. I was asked for a hand trace so he could create a neck radius to suit the size of my hand. Call up any of the Brand names and see what they think, NOT! The fact that Patrick hand makes these is amazing. No production line here waiting for the noon whistle. Simply put, the Best Guitar I've ever owned or played and I've had about all of them...... I have nothing negative to say about this guitar. The feel, the looks, everything is quality with no shortcuts. I've read a few things where people have stated they can spend less and get a better guitar and I'm thinking they are the type that the free guitar strap and window sticker is the sell point. Sure your going to spend a little more then if you walked into your 50% off sale at the local mass produced big money guitar store, but a better quality, better playing, better sounding!? Not even close! I would not hesitate to purchase another Hufschmid guitar if I was looking for another Great guitar or if something happened to mine. Jam On and I Thank You Patrick Hufschmid Guitars.....

Impressive Acoustic for $100! (Samick - D-5/LH)

By SouthpawDude, 26/03/2014
Crafted in Indonesia - American Design and Engineering by Greg Bennett
S/N: SI30600581

Description from the Greg Bennett Guitar website:

When you consider the various parts of the guitar, the top is clearly the most critical element. The top, in the most basic sense, acts like an air pump. The more flexible the top material, the more efficiently it translates the energy from the string into the sound waves that we hear as music. Instruments made with solid tops produce greater volume, fuller tone, and have stronger projection.

The WORTHINGTON™ series acoustics have a solid spruce top, in a package with striped mahogany sides and back for clarity and balance. Mahogany may be the best overall wood if you need an evenly balanced sound. The balance lets the serious player determine the tone by the way he plays the guitar. The soft corner bridge design helps prevent finish cracking at the corners. Grover™ tuners round out a truly professional package.

D 5 LH FEATURES:
•Left handed Dreadnought cutaway body
•Solid Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides
•Nato Mahogany neck
•Rosewood fingerboard (12” radius)
•Nut width 1 11/16”
•20 fret, 25 1/2”scale
•Dot inlay
•5-ply cream binding
•Grover™ A102C, 14:1 ratio tuners
•Rosewood bridge

AVAILABLE FINISHES: Natural (gloss)



UTILIZATION

A typical Dreadnought that is well balanced from head stock to strap pin. It has a very nice, relatively loud bass with clear highs for a solid spruce top acoustic in this price range. This guitar was lightly used, came with a Fender gig bag and still had the original strings on it. The protective film was still on the pick guard.
Being a used guitar, I don't know if the action had been lowered or it came that way from the factory but it is low and plays very good up the neck w/o any string buzz. At the 12th fret, it is exactly in tune on 5 strings. The B string is just a wee bit on the flat side. I don't know what material the nut and saddle are made of but they appear to be of much better quality than plastic. The saddle looks to be hand fitted.

SOUNDS

I am impressed by it's overall balanced sound.

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar is probably one of the most underrated acoustic guitars for under $400. It is no longer in production in a lefty version but there are a few used ones out there. You just have to look for them. The right handed specifications are the same.
This guitar is very nice looking with the reddish hue of the Mahogany back and sides. It appears to be made with pride by the Samick employees who in the past have made lots of guitars for "other brands".
In comparison, this guitar sounds as good as my Fender DG-14S, Washburn D-10S, and Epiphone PR350S which are all lefty solid top acoustics.
