It's a delight to hear a rich warm sound in a budget oriented guitar which is playable. Very good workmanship with a classic double striped black binding. Throat of neck actually inserts inside the body adding stability and strength. I haven't yet been able to justify owning an expensive acoustic In a very dry climate. Hence; this fits the bill perfectly.

I bought this guitar almost a year ago. I love this guitar and am told by experienced players that it is a great compact guitar. The strings do take time to get used to but that is normal with acoustic guitars- I am already used to it.... I am having a very positive experience with this guitar so far.

Fuller sound than some Canadian made guitars, too cheap for its price considering scalloped bracing. It will last a ling time, great built

Got this as my first acoustic since it's pretty affordable, and I've been pretty happy with it. I really have no prior experience or knowledge with acoustic guitars, and how they compare to eachother. But I'll add my two cents. I think the strings that come with it are pretty crummy, they felt like they were grabbing onto my fingers, which made it a little tricky to play. So I'd recommend getting some new strings right away. I got the standard d'addario lights and they seemed to be much better. There are also some slightly rough patches on the sides of the body, but it's really no big deal. The edges of the body are also a little sharp. And by that I just mean that they're at a 90° angle with no round over, so if you arm is in certain positions it can be kind of uncomfortable. But that's really all I have to say about the guitar. I like playing it. I'm sure it's not the greatest guitar, but I'm also sure that you'd be able to play it just fine, and have a hoot of a time. Doing so. Also, Burlington store is awesome, the staff there are really cool and nice!

I was "all electric" but wanted to get an acoustic to cut out the need be where the amp was. Tried a few guitars in the shop and had almost made my mind up to go with another make when the salesman brought this Yamaha. It sounded good straight out of the box, better than the others, so I put my money down on this one. Got it home and was impressed with the overall product - nice sound, nice finish etc but after a couple of days the sound was a bit 'muddy' so I put a new set of Gibson strings on it. What a difference!! The only issue I have is that the is no strap button at the top of the body. I don't like having the strap tied over the nut end of the neck. I'll take it to get a button. Having a lot of fun with the guitar and would recommend it as a great buy for $250.

Recently purchased this guitar and couldn't be happier. A solid, practical acoustic for an extremely reasonable price. Sound is great, especially the mids and lows. Action was a tad high out of the box, but after the complementary L&Q setup it was absolutely perfect. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a quality guitar on a budget

I love this guitar. Really impressed. I gave it 5 stars even for features because of how cheap it is. I personally like the matte finish over the gloss and would have paid the extra 20 if the prices were reversed. After i break it in i will probaby do some minor upgrades like tusq saddle and pins etc, but right out of the box i think it sounds great. Stael of a deal!
