Description

When it comes to reasonably priced acoustic guitars, the market is inundated with models from a range of manufacturers – some well-known, such as Fender and Yamaha, and others less well-known. While Jasmine may not be as well-known as some of the bigger companies, they certainly know how to compete when it comes to delivering a high-quality instrument for less than a hundred dollars. Their S35 is a good example of this. Take a closer look at it.

  1. Alfred C.

    This is a lovely, well-constructed basic acoustic. It is not the most amazing, best ever made-instrument that many reviewers have made it out to be. Don’t get me wrong: it’s a solidly made banger or beginning guitar with a decent tone. It is not a toy for children. It’s a high-end instrument. However, some reviewers make it seem like this is the holy grail of budget guitars. It isn’t the case. It’d be ideal for a student or to go camping, but you’re not going to get a Martin or Taylor quality for less than $100.00. With the normal tweaks—new strings, adjusting the truss rod, and making sure the saddle isn’t jacked up with additional shims and fits properly—you have a fully functioning instrument for around a hundred dollars.

    I got it to see what all the hype was about, rather than as a game I’d play on a regular basis. I’ll be bringing it camping or playing in the backyard with it. Personally, I would look for a beater in a pawn store. However, many individuals are inexperienced with guitars and/or do not have access to someone who can assist them with their purchase. You can’t go wrong with this if you’re new to the instrument and need a decent place to start. Just keep in mind that practice, practice, practice is required. And yes, when you first start out, your hands will hurt a lot. It’s just a natural part of the procedure. Stick with it, and you’ll be gifted with a gift/talent/skill that will last a lifetime, regardless of the type/brand of the game you play. Good luck with your selection.

    The guitar is really well-made. There are no gobs of glue visible on the inside bracing. I used a flashlight to search (torch). The external black binding is well-fitting, and once the dust has been removed, the wood can be felt to be thinly satin polished, with no gaps or ill-fitting regions. On the rosewood bridge, there is just a visible clean glue line under the strings, which is probably excellent practice. A glue line can also be seen between the neck and the top of the body, although it’s quite tidy and shows that the piece was well-made.

    What shocked me, even more, was the wood used for the body top. It’s a reddish beige hue with streaks. The sides are identical to the Amazon image. I was expecting to see a light spruce-colored wood with brownish lines like the photo on Amazon and the picture on Jasmine.com, and like my Epiphone Spruce top, I’m not certain it’s Spruce. After doing some study, I’ve determined that it’s a Spruce heartwood cut, which explains the reddish non-striped appearance of the top and back: this is more appealing and perhaps more useful than a sapwood cut, plus it will draw less water from humid air, so it’s all fine.

    This guitar type is listed on the Jasmine website as having a “select spruce” top with Agathis back and sides (“select” generally indicates thin ply layers like my Epiphone).
    Agathis appears on the back and sides. I’m getting used to the guitar. I’ve always coveted a dreadnaught, and his instrument’s harmonics and tones amaze me. It’s simple to play and sounds fantastic. I paid $100 + tax and received everything I wanted from a beautiful sounding instrument, however, I’m confused since I don’t know what wood is used on the body besides Agathis and Spruce ply. The neck is Nato, while the fretboard and bridge are Rosewood. I’m quite confident I’ll keep it and listen to the enormous, wonderful sounds it produces.
    I’m pleased I kept it months later, and the action, as I mentioned before, was wonderfully flawless straight out of the box and continues to be so.
