MNJ | dv247 Magazine | October 2011
The enigmatically named MNJ - writing for the independent UK retailer dv247 - reviews BMG's "other" guitar, finding the Red-Special flavoured electro-acoustic "small, light and comfortable to play" with a nicely balanced acoustic response.
Better still plugged-in, courtesy of the excellent on-board B-Band electronics, he discovers the Rhapsody's true calling, as it delivers a rich, versatile sound that "wouldn’t be out of place on a professional stage".

I have owned a BMG Rhapsody since they first came out. I have played many others in that time but keep coming back to the Rhapsody... with its chunky neck and 24 accessible frets it is just a joy to play and so versatile.With its small (but perfectly formed) body you really need to plug it in to get the best from it. The B-Band pickup and pre-amp it give a great full sound for a small guitar, but practicing alone it is fine unplugged. All my friends who have played it have loved it too.Looks good, feels good and sounds great... what more can you ask?Also a perfect match for my BM Super.
