Revival RG-27 Acoustic Guitar
The Revival RG-27 acoustic dreadnought guitar is one of Revivals most popular models, perhaps because it is an all solid wood acoustic guitar. Why pay 2K when you can own an RG-27? This is a fine guitar for bluegrass, flat picking, country; or any type of music!
A guitar which features a solid Englemann spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, would seem to be a pretty swinging deal right off the bat. The RG-27 is a decently made dreadnought with a gloss finish and lots of lightly figured maple binding on the body and fretboard. The look of the contrasting woods is very eye catching. The abalone rosette and pearl headstock logo are precisely inlaid, as are the small shell dots that grace the 25 1/4"–scale rosewood board. The two-piece neck has a comfy “C” shape and a maple-capped heel, and the 20 medium frets are properly crowned and seated, although not highly polished.
The RG-27 plays well and it pumps out an impressive amount of volume with abundant lows and a bright top. The sweet, punchy midrange response that you expect from a high-end dreadnought (such as a Martin D-28 we used as a reference) is less discernable in the RG-27, but this guitar still sounds very good. This guitar has what it takes to be a good lead/ rhythm axe for an acoustic band, and is a particularly cool choice when you don’t have a lot to spend.
Kudos Solid wood construction. Crisp and loud with excellent bass response.
