Donner DAG-1CE Acoustic Electric Guitar

Gearank Recommendation

The was on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars Under $200 from June 2018 until March 2021 when it was out-ranked by higher rated models.


The Donner DAG-1CE is a straightforward acoustic-electric guitar in the familiar dreadnought shape, only this one has a cut-away body and comes with some nice freebies.

It features standard wood configuration, which includes spruce for the top and mahogany for the back and sides.

The neck has a slim C" shape profile for comfortable playability and it comes with a built-in active preamp with EQ controls for adjusting treble, bass and mids.

This guitar comes bundled with extras that include a guitar strap, a capo, a pickguard, an extra set of guitar strings and a bundle of guitar picks, all of which add to the already good value you are getting out of this guitar.
