Are cases included?

We offer our cases separately as we have many veteran players buying our guitars who already own cases and we don’t want to force them into buying another.   We have 2 types of cases and offer them at wholesale cost on our cases page.

Here’s a video that shows both cases up close:

100% Money Back Guarantee

Zager Guitars is a 47 year old family owned guitar company that does most of its business from friends referring friends and family. We like our customers happy and this is why we’re the ONLY guitar company with a true 100% money back guarantee that includes all shipping fees within 30 days of the purchase date.  No restocking fees, no hidden charges, no BS. This means you can try a guitar without risking a penny.

We are musicians and we understand you need to take time with an instrument to see if you’re comfortable with it.  This cannot be done in a noisy music store with a salesman hovering over your shoulder trying to make a sale.

Buying online also saves you money because you’re buying directly from the builder bypassing the retail store and their middleman price mark up. This is why if you were to see Zager guitars in stores prices would be double.

International, Alaska and Hawaii customers

As shipping fees can be excessive sending a large box fully insured around the world we are only able to offer our 100% guarantee to customers within the contiguous United States .  We have very few returns though as our return rate is under 1%.

What’s included?

All guitars come ready to play with all the equipment you need including lifetime access to Denny’s tuning & maintenance videos that he updates regularly with lifetime support from our video help library, a hand signed Certificate of Authenticity and a surprise gift personally from Denny.  If you need more accessories we offer them on our accessories page.

Choosing the right size

Full Size Dreadnought:  The most popular guitar size in the world. If you want bass, volume & power, the full size dreadnought is the only way to go.

Orchestra Model (OM size):  Our Orchestra Models “OM size” guitars are the same as our full size guitars, but Denny designs them 15% smaller with a thinner body and a narrower hourglass shape so they’re easier for smaller players. Because they have a thinner body they will also have a slightly thinner sound but if you want a guitar that’s easy to get your arm around and pull in close our Orchestra models combine the perfect blend of comfort and playability.

4/5 Parlor Size:  Our Parlor size guitars are approximately 25% smaller than our full size guitars but what really makes them special is they have a 2 inch shorter neck design. This means children and small adults (under 5 ft tall) don’t have to reach as far holding certain chords making playability even easier. Most of our customers buying our Parlor guitars are coming from little Martins and Taylors.  They say the Easy Play Parlor has 30-50% easier playability and sound is slightly richer and deeper.

3/4 Travel Size: Hand built with the same love and care as our larger guitars, just pint sized.  Great for travel, ideal for children struggling to get their arms around full size guitars, fantastic second guitar for the office.  Because they have a smaller box design they will have a smaller sound (like any smaller guitar) but our electric model with built in auto tuner allows you to plug into an amplifier or PA system giving you the same power as our full size guitars.

Here’s a helpful video we made showing all the sizes together:

Do you do custom builds? (video)

The only way we can offer our handmade guitars at half of our competitors prices is by limiting custom work.  We’re the only guitar company in the world who offers a 100% money back guarantee that includes shipping both ways and our customers really like this as it takes all the stress out of buying.  There are custom shops who will build guitars to spec but prices are extremely high (usually $5000+) and they never offer a money back guarantee as the guitar is custom built just for you.  The models we have now have been refined over the last 47 years and have the highest ratings and the best reviews.

Does Zager make custom built guitars?

Where can I try a Zager? (video)

My father only offers his guitars direct from our website meaning there is no middleman price mark up.  In this way quality control is perfect since he’s the last one to handle your guitar before it’s delivered to you, and our prices are 50% less since you’re buying direct from our workshop in Lincoln, Nebraska.

To remove all risk we’re the only guitar company in the world with a true 100% money back guarantee that includes shipping fees both ways meaning you can try a guitar in your home instead of a crowded noisy music store, with your own equipment, and without risking a penny.
