Rogue guitars are a low cost line of electric and acoustic instruments. Rogue guitars are made with maple and incorporate rosewood fret boards. They're considered ideal for beginning guitarists because they provide an acceptable ratio of quality for the money.
Rogue guitars are the house brand for a music distribution company called Musician's Friend located near the Rogue River in the Rogue Valley of Medford, Oregon. This is where the guitar line got its name.
History and Expansion
Rogue guitars were introduced in the mid 1990s. The Rogue line has since expanded to include mandolins, basses and other stringed instruments, as well as amplifiers and keyboards.
Rogue Guitar Line
As of 2010, Rogue guitars featured electric and acoustic guitars in a price range that went from $35 for an acoustic to no more than $300. Acoustic guitars feature ash wood tops and electric guitars have a one-piece mahogany wood construction.
Musician's Friend is the primary distributor of the Rogue guitar, but the actual manufacturing of the instruments is done by Sungbo Industrial in Korea.
