Donner DST-152 Electric Guitar Review

Updated: Jan 10, 2023



When I started studying abroad, I couldn't take my guitar with me. So I started searching for a cheap, entry-level guitar market to buy there. As a result of this research, I decided to buy the Donner DST-152 model electric guitar. In this article, I will discuss the features, pros and cons of this guitar that I have been playing for about 5 months.



First of all, I should mention that if you are beginner or just starting guitar, this product is very suitable for you as the product comes with everything you need to start playing. These accessories areas follows;

  • Gig bag

  • 3W Donner brand mini guitar amp

  • USB-C cable to charge the amp

  • 6.35mm instrument cable

  • String Set

  • Capo

  • AUX Cable

  • Strap

  • Tuner

  • Allen keys for neck and bridge adjustments

It comes with free online lessons given by donner with some models. Apart from these, we can list the features of the guitar as seen below;

Body Wood

Poplar

Neck Wood

Maple

Neck Shape

C-shape

Fingerboard Material

Indian Laurel/Maple

Bridge

6- Saddle Synchronized Tremolo Bridge

Number of frets

22


Like all of the DST models, the DST-152 is an ST type guitar. Its pickup configuration is HSS. The bridge pickup, which is a humbucker, has a split coil feature. With this feature, you can use the bridge pickup as both a single coil and a humbucker. To do this, you just need to pull the second tone control knob up.


One of the things I like about the guitar is the build quality. The DST-152's frets are very well-rasped and do not stick to the hand, compared to similar guitars, priced at around $200. At the same time, the neck and body joint is superior to its competitors. Factors like these increase the playability of the guitar and make it suitable for beginners.



In short, I can list the other pros as follows;

  • Accessories included in the box

  • Split Coil feature

  • Great value for its price

The one thing I don't like about the guitar is its bridge. This is because when changing the strings, sometimes the ball ends get stuck inside and becomes hard to remove. In addition, the tuning pegs are not of very good quality, but it cannot be said that they are bad for the price. My final verdict is that this guitar is a price-performance product. I highly recommend it, especially for beginners. If you want to buy the product, you can find it in the attached link.
