Welcome to the Sigma DME, an electro-acoustic dreadnought-shaped guitar with a solid sitka spruce top. It is an astonishingly good value electro-acoustic guitar with features WAY beyond its price point.

Sigma Guitars quickly established an excellent, even legendary, reputation in the 1970s. Models are of outstanding quality, both, in construction and sound. That’s why it is striking, but not surprising, that there are hardly any second-hand Sigma guitars up for sale. Most owners still swear by their instruments and would never part with them. Now its your turn to join the Sigma community!

The Sigma DME is a full body dreadnought acoustic guitar. It features a solid Spruce top paired with Mahogany back and sides. What’s more, the DME is fitted with a bone nut and saddle. This gives this guitar a superb acoustic tone that will quite easily shame bigger brands costing several times as much.

It’s bright and airy with plenty of body and detail. The Sigma DME doesn’t just stop there. Fitted to the side of the body is an active Sigma CE 304 preamp with volume, bass, middle and treble controls along with a chromatic guitar tuner. The Mahogany neck has a narrow 42.9mm nut and a substantial rounded profile.

Aesthetically Sigma have gone for a ‘no frills’ approach. There is no binding around the body or neck and the rosette around the soundhole has been etched in to the wood to keep costs down. With good quality machine heads and great acoustic and plugged in tones, there really is very little to go against the Sigma DME. It gets a huge thumbs up from us!

This guitar is in great used condition, with a few minor signs of wear/use (see photos). The previous owner also used a wood-burning tool to etch a small circle near the base of the body, to indicate where the jack input is on the underside of the guitar (as he kept struggling to find it). It wouldn’t have been our first solution for that problem but it certainly adds character to the guitar and makes it a truly unique instrument!

It has been tested, restrung, health-checked, cleaned, oiled, polished and setup before sale, so lots of added value there too.

Grab yourself a real bargain – a top quality guitar at an entry-level price!
