      The Yamaha name has lived up to the consistency of their products. This is no exception! From the ease of use, to the great sound you get. I would highly recommend this to any guitar player looking to get their first guitar. In addition, you get a lifetime warranty on the fretboard. Wow!

          This is THE choice of amatuer to pro musicians everywhere! Yamaha acoustics offer a spruce top for nice cut and warmth. This is a superior entry level guitar with bound body and neck, diecast tuners, and a sweet 20 fret rosewood fingerboard. Everyone should own one fo these...from the local campfire to rockin a stage...this gets is done!

            Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

            Yamaha can always guarantee you're getting a top quality product, at any price range. This goes for the fg700s as well. All the price of an inexpensive beginners guitar, none of that thin lifeless "sound" that most inexpensive beginners guitars have. If you're "ballin on a budget" this is the guitar for you.

              Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

              The quality Yamaha has put into this guitar cannot be beat. Everyone who has had the chance to play this model has no complaints. Yes it's made in china and is not going sound like a $1000 Taylor or martin; but for a solid top $200 acoustic that plays good, sounds good and stays in there is no comparison.

                This guitar is great for players of any level. Whether you are a beginner or a pro, this guitar is excellent. Very good tone and easy playability. The quality is exceptional for a guitar in the $200 price range. When comparing this guitar to more expensive models this guitar can hang with the best of them.

                Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

                You can never go wrong with Yamaha. Normally, I wouldn't try a guitar in this price range because, let's be honest, they typically don't play well. I have always been a fan of Yamaha so being as faithful as I am, I figured I'd strum on it for a bit. I played on this thing for over an hour!!

                Very smooth and good action out of the box. The strings can be changed for something better, but really good tone and it looks geat too! You really could tell someone you spent $1000 on this guitar and they would believe you...It really is that good. But don't just take my word for it. Get down to Sam Ash and test drive this thing yourself.

                  One of my favorite guitars that I have owned in the past, the sound quality was surprising! I wouldn't have thought that a guitar in the $200 price range would sound as good as it does! Solid spruce top, comfortable neck and good tuning machines. A great value!

                    A great solid top guitar for any budget. Yamaha pays great attention to detail with their construction process and this definitely shows. It plays great and with the matte neck its actually smoother than any gloss finished neck. It's a best-seller for my customers and never disappoints:)! Makes a great gift and great at home guitar.

                      I'm a 40 yr player... 10 in music retail. This piece with solid top, rosewood board, nato back & sides is great- without having to add the tagline "for the money". I have sold hundreds of this model, not only to beginners who won't have to come back & trade up as their playing progresses, but also to people who don't want to take their $2000-$5000 high end instrument fishing, camping, or just travel to regions of less temperate climate. The sound & playability are on par with instruments at more than twice the price. A real winner! Sam Ash Sales Assoc
