Has that Delta Blues sound, great for slide in open tunings
stimresp, 27.04.2021
I bought the larger Delta Blues O model as a practice guitar, but I was so intrigued by the sounds I heard from this little guy that I also put it in my basket. What the hell, such a low price, it was worth a punt. Both guitars were delivered quickly and in good shape.

Setup was perfect, just some oil for the fretboard, bridge and a quick fret polish was required. I think if you were to buy this hoping for a typical guitar sound you may be disappointed, but this is also its strength. It really does have that tinny Delta blues sound, with an almost resonator/banjo-like tone.

I put medium Bronze strings on it, along with a bone nut and I play it in open tunings (D,G) with a heavy brass slide and metal fingerpicks. I give it a good bashing and it really does sound convincing! As a slide guitar it is very, very nice and I am spending may happy hours noodling away on it.

The tuners are not the best but they keep it in tune. Other than that, I am really pleased with it.

So, not a guitar replacement IMO, but a little extra tasty sauce to have at the ready. For the money, it's a winner.

Incredible!
Great Dane , 18.05.2021
I had gas for a nice little acoustic travel guitar and saw rage Delta Blues T . Based on reviews it seemed quite good and was super cheap so I went for it.
Glad I did . Honestly , I cannot believe the quality and sound of this little guitar. It looks great and is so fun to play. Has a nice popping sound to it.
It blows my mind how it can be this cheap . It stays in tune well , is light and easy to bring pretty much anywhere you want.
I'm exited to see how it will hold up in a years time. But if you have some spare change and are looking for a cool little guitar , you need to get this !
Around the same time I got the Martin backpacker which is also a great travel guitar in its own right . But if I suddenly had to do a solo acoustic set and had to chose Bergen that and the delta.........I'd almost have to go with the Harley Benton !

resonant baby
strongforest, 01.03.2021
Just received.Oveall it looks very well made, no sharp frets, frets finished well at the ends, flat neck. The action is good and set well within accepted acoustic guitar string heights. Body is VERY resonant, maybe the mahogany but just a solid little instrument. The sound is very resonator like which is unusual and a nice surprise. The inside braces are clean no gaps and no glue residue. basically well put together. You either like the "pore" finish or not, I like it. Utilitarian. Fits perfects into a Baby Taylor Hardcase. Overall length is 86cm from headstock to body end, 87cm if you include the strap button. For the total price with shipping, $180 CAD, it's a worthwhile buy as a useable alternative to an LX1 or BT.

Great travel guitar
Ludi Shumar, 30.11.2019
It looks beautiful, the build is excellent, the sound is very bluesy and it's not too quiet considering the size. I was actually surprised at how loud it is. The shipping was crazy fast and got me in trouble with the wife since she was home when it prematurely arrived and I didn't have enough time to tell her that I'd bought the 6th guitar. we have a house full of guitars and she is mad at me, but I will keep it at work so, don't be mad honey I love you, but I also love guitars. Peace
