Crescent MG38-CF 38″ Acoustic Guitar

I think we can safely say that the starter package with the Crescent acoustic guitar includes everything but the kitchen sink.  I think my Aunt Mary might actually make a tomato sandwich with this package! Seriously. It has an impressive number of accessories.

Ignoring the good quality, full-sized wooden Crescent acoustic guitar for a moment, let’s talk about the fact that the amazing price of the starter kit is what you would pay, if not less, just for the accessories included.

When I opened up my box it was like Christmas had come early!!There is an included pocket-sized pitch pipe, a full set of extra strings, a gig bag with a carrying strap, a guitar pick, a pickguard, and an awesome clip-on digital e-tuner.

The Main Event of the Crescent MG38-CF 38″ Acoustic Guitar Starter Package

So, now let’s talk about the guitar in this starter package. The Crescent acoustic guitar is a full-sized, full-bodied 38 inch guitar. It has a 17 inch body with a nice average 4 inch thickness, which is great for almost any player to hold and play.

Despite its full size, the Crescent acoustic guitar is pleasantly light for the beginning player, weighing in at only 4.4 pounds. This version of a steel string acoustic guitar is most commonly used for Country, Bluegrass and southern rock, but can handle any genre of music.

It also features Linden binding, and quality wood construction. The geared tuners are made from brass and steel and stay in tune for a long time compared to other beginner acoustic guitars.This may sound trivial – it’s not. An angst-filled teenager banging on steel strings will put tuners to work!

The Sound of the Crescent MG38-CF 38″ Acoustic Guitar

Depending on the package you purchase, the wood construction varies a little. There are a few good wood varieties to order from but each features a bright, ringing tone in the sound quality. This is a bright sounding steel string acoustic guitar, and features a quality wood backing no matter which kit you decide to order.

In addition to the body’s good quality tone wood, the fretboard is made of the classic high quality Rosewood and features full-sized frets. The comfortable size and shape of the body of the Crescent acoustic guitar allows for Bluegrass flatpicking in addition to finger-picking folk and using a pick to blast out some rock and roll.

Beginner’s Appeal of the Crescent MG38-CF 38″ Acoustic Guitar
