A few friends and I met some other friends at the Guitar Center on Memorial Day. We were busy oo-ing and ah-ing about the guitars like kids at a toy store, and one of us wanted a Gibson. The store guy offered us 15 months credit cards, and we all felt it was too good to pass up. I'm a beginner, so I didn't want to get anything flashy and expensive. The DR-100 fit the bill at $99.00.

As a beginner, I can't say much except that it sounds great. It's new, so everything about it is nice and clean, no scratches, dents, warps, etc. It's ready to play right off the shelf so that's good, too.

The 6th string has already started giving me trouble. It's the buzzing. Nothing that a new set of strings won't fix.

As I mentioned, there are no dents, scratches, warps, etc. You can tell it was put together well, and the finish is beautiful. It's just a beautiful, simple guitar.

Bottom line, I am proud of my purchase. For a beginner accoustic, it was the best decision I could have made. And it is my prized possession. If the whole apartment went up in flames but the guitar survived, I would hug my guitar and be oblivious to what was going on around me.
