Love my T-170

By laocmo

from Central Ohio

Comments about Silver Creek T-170 Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned four 000-size guitars in the last dozen or so years. Ranging in price from 4X to 10X what I paid for my T-170. None sounded as good as it does. It is loud, resonate, and the sustain is phenomenal. Mine was an early one, and unlike the more expensive name brands, it required a couple of hours of setup work to make it playable. I'm told current models have had this out of the box setup greatly improved. It only sounds better the more I play it. In fact I've sold all my other 000-size guitars. I whole heartedly recommend this guitar, especially for finger picking'. If you want a guitar with a lot of bottom end for bluegrass type playing, check out its big brother the D-170. I also have one of those, and again its purchase led to my selling three high end dreadnoughts that just didnt measure up to it sound wise. Too good to be true sums up my feelings for these guitars.

T-170 Auditorium Acoustic

By moonsparrow

from Undisclosed

Comments about Silver Creek T-170 Acoustic Guitar:

Simply the best guitar that I have ever played, and I've owned a Yairi and Martins. Alive with tonal qualities one would expect from a fine violin. I'd buy a fiddle from these folks in an instant. I've got more guitar than guitar player on my hands now, but with motivation and the instrument to get better. Especially bright on high end, think low end will come around over time and with a little string wear. I had played one of these a few years ago at the Richmond, MO., outlet, and was impressed, recently rejected a very fine inexpensive Washburn, and now feel totally satisfied that I've found the guitar of a lifetime, and without much cash.

Poor mans Martin

By John Nils C.

from Undisclosed

Comments about Silver Creek T-170 Acoustic Guitar:

Very high quality guitar with very nice woods. I consider this a poor mans Martin, like the Eric Clapton model at a fraction of the price. Nice, balanced articulate tone that works very well for recording and also works very well as a parlor style guitar. Volume is good for body size but it will get drowned out in acoustic jams with other dreadnaugts but put a pick up in it and it sounds very sweet. The classic V prolife neck starts at the first fret and gradually fades into a modified oval style, that and the Martin style diamond volute makes this look and feel much more expensive than it is. I had to tweak the truss rod which is very responsive and shave a bit off the saddle which took 10 minutes, with new Elixers this guitar is a real winner. I highly recommend this guitar, I wish they had these in the 60's when I started playing.

Good Beginner Guitar

By jim-j7Drq

from pa.

Comments about Silver Creek T-170 Acoustic Guitar:

Purchased the T-170 and found it to be a wonderful 000 guitar. Changed the stings and it has a great tone and lots of volume. Fit and finish are good and fairly good knock off of a Martin. Price is unbeatable for the quality and materials used in its construction. Also bought the case another unbeatable deal. Play it more as much as my Eric Clapton Strat.

Great Value

By Wab

from PacNW

Comments about Silver Creek T-170 Acoustic Guitar:

If you're looking for a short-scale 000, there is no better value than the Silver Creek T-170. This is a very comfortable guitar to play, and it's very responsive. The only downside is that the guitar will almost certainly require a setup -- a trussrod tweak, a saddle adjustment, and probably new strings. This makes it a so-so choice for noobs who can't do their own setup, but it makes it an excellent choice for anybody willing to do a little work.

Fantastic Guitar for Money

By Tim-pj1gD

from Easley, SC

Comments about Silver Creek T-170 Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. I bought this guitar because I wanted a small body guitar that I could take anywhere, and not be out of much money if something were to happen to it. Needless to say, I got much more than I expected. The sound is deep and loud for a smallbody. I just put an IBEAM Active in it, and it makes this guitar absolutely sing. I have a Larivee L09 and a Martin D16, and though this one lacks the name, it is a great guitar and is pretty close to the other 2, but it's a different sound. Keep eye out for a BLEM to save money, I bought a blem and it looked perfect, and I have less that $400 in this guitar including case and IBEAM. BUY IT
