      Comments about Yamaha 3/4 Scale Folk Guitar:

      I bought the Yamaha JR2 for something to noodle around on and it fits the bill. I installed G Tone GT6 electronics (under saddle pickup, on board reverb and chorus. 3 band) and wow, what a sound this little guitar makes. Competes with the big boys. Have had some very experienced players play it and they can't believe the action and the sound. I lowered the action down to the deck for effortless playing as well as a set of light gauge Martin strings. Added a set of brass bridge pins just for fun and to bring out the highs.

          Good selection for a youth guitar. Ordered after returning a different brand and am happy with this. Sounded good right out of the box. This as well as a Luna are good choices. My daughter said it was easier to play than others she had tried.

            Been playing for about 5 years - bought this for my 6 yr old son. 3/4 scale makes this a good size for him, and doesn't sound that bad for a cheap guitar. I would buy again.

            Great value for the money. Somewhat disappointed with several paint flaws on the body but I guess only I know they are there.

              Comments about Yamaha 3/4 Scale Folk Guitar:

              I traded in my parlor and a few other guitars and got this at [@]. The base response seemed a bit low but once I got it home it was good enough for me practicing. I put a set of GHS medium silk steel strings on it and they work very well on it. I am having fun practicing and relearning guitar. This guitar is about the same size as the little martin's and taylors but is over a hundred cheaper and comes with a case. It didn't need any adjustment and is a real beauty and sounds good too. A great easy chair guitar.
