Wow! This guitar, the Glen Burton GA204BCO acoustic-electric is really hard to find information about, but it’s fairly popular, so I’m going to tell you what little I know about it.
It comes in a few colors, but the most popular seems to be black which is model GA204BCO-BK. I rather like the black look myself.
If you’d like to check out the pricing and availability of the Glen Burton guitar from Bridgecraft now, you can click (or tap) the link just below.
The Glen Burton acoustic electric is a steel string guitar for not a lot of cash. You get the traditional dreadnought, cutaway body made of several woods.
There does seem to be some confusion as to exactly which woods are used. Amazon says, “Flame top; Basswood back and sides; Catalpa Neck and Bridge; Rosewood Fingerboard.”
But the Bridgecraft site says, “Designed with high quality materials like Basswood, Rosewood, Linden, and Catalpa wood.”
Then it lists the following.
I guess about all we know for sure is that the fingerboard is made of rosewood.
Since I’m not an expert on types of wood, I couldn’t tell you what it’s made of for certain even if I had one in front of me. Sorry.
This instrument is made in China. There are apparently some problems with construction sometimes, according to comments provided by current owners. Most purchasers are actually pleased with the guitar though.
Normally you get the Glen Burton guitar as part of a package that includes the following items.
- Digital Tuner
- Gig Bag
- Guitar Strap
- Truss Wrench
Don’t expect much from the small practice amp. In fact, some users never could get it to work. The gig bag is nothing to write home about either. It will keep the dust off, but that’s about all.
If you’re interested in a decent, inexpensive guitar of this style, give the Glen Burton acoustic-electric a try. Even if you get one of the lemons, you won’t be out a lot of cash. It may turn out to be one of your best guitars for the money you spent.
