    Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

    Yamaha student instruments have long been known for high quality and ease of play. This guitar is a standout for its solid top, sealed tuning gears and overall quality of materials and construction. The FG700S is my go-to guitar for students and first-time buyers, as it offers an outstanding value at a very reasonable price.

        Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

        I was really surprised with this guitar actually. It is priced as a beginner guitar, but it sounds like a new Taylor! This is probably the best beginner acoustic guitar on the market. When someone is starting an instrument, the better it sounds, the more apt they are to enjoy it and stick with it. I've been playing guitar for about 10 years and I would definitely still pick up this guitar and play it. The action is perfect and the intonation is great and maintenance is very easy! Yamaha acoustic guitars have definitely come a long way over the years! Don't sell them short; give them a try. You will not regret it.

        Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

        For the price, this guitar offers quite a lot. It has a good tone for a lower-end guitar which is hard to come by. The bottom end is rich and full-bodied, and the higher end has a good shimmery sound and is not too brittle. For a beginner this guitar is an excellent choice for it's solid construction and good tone. It's biggest asset in my opinion is the feel of the neck which is smooth and easy to play and move around on. This offers exceptional playability and ease moving around the fret board.

            I purchased this guitar last Christmas and have no regrets about it (knock on wood). I have never changed the strings on it yet and it sounds like I got it yesterday. Just got some new daddario strings today and cant wait to see how it sounds!!! Awesome guitar for the price. Yes, yes, yes, I would definitly recommend this to a friend!!

            Comments about Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar:

            Not going to sayanything new, I'm sure. Had to add to the other reviews because this guitar deserves all the great reviews it gets.
            This is priced as a beginner guitar. If you are a beginner, you could not start on a better guitar. It does not play like any beginner guitar that I've ever played. I really hate to say "for the price", because it is sort of misleading. It's been said before, but it's true... It really does play like many higher end guitars.
            I played a lot of guitars (low to high) and always came back to this one. IMO, compares very closely to the Taylor 110, both in sound and feel. Sound is a matter of taste of course. This, to me, has a higher end crisp clean sound. Does not sound at all like an inexpensive guitar. This is not even close to a toy. I like the satin neck. Feels good, more comfortable on the hand when playing. Guitar stays in tune. Looks nice.
            If this guitar sold for $400.00, I would feel like I got a good deal. I truely believe if you played it blindfolded along with more expensive spruce top guitars (apples to apples), you'd have a hard time telling which costs more.
            That's my two and a half cents. Very nice guitar for the money, or not.

                  This is my first guitar; I use it still for practice with my music teacher.
                  It provides amazing sound for the lowest price possible. If you're looking to invest in a guitar for a couple years, this one will do fine.
