          The guitar has a great feel and sound. Only issue I have is a hum on certain notes when I leave the battery in the Auto Tuner. Removing the tuner battery remedies the issue.

            Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I had a 84 Guild acoustic which I loved and installed a pickup but could never get a balanced sound. My friend has an APX-9C Yamaha and I was blown away by the sound threw an amp.I purchased the FGX720SCA and a Carvin 200 watt acoustic amp. The clarity blows me away. Yamaha electronics are the best and the Carvin amp brings it out. The guitar also sounds great unplugged. The price is awesome to. Very happy now!

              Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              The moment I played my first note on this guitar, I knew I fell in love. I bought the brown sunburst finish and I am absolutely captivated. Every note on this guitar has such a rich and clear sound. I originally bought some coated phosphor strings to start playing this baby, but the strings that it came with sounded so good that I didn't bother replacing them. Playing this guitar just feels right. I don't know how many guitars I've been through, but I have been playing for 8+ years. This has to be the BEST acoustic I've ever played. I have not had a chance to use it on an amp but I've heard great things about it. What are you waiting for? Go buy one!!!!!

              Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I was looking for a good 6 strings acoustic guitar-electric guitar, and this review was so usefull for me, I read it a lot, and choose a Yamaha FGX 720 SCA, at my favorite dealer here in Brazil(Milsons, some thing like "Thousand Sounds), and now I can say, it's a VERY GOOD Guitar. All things people has talking about is true, and so I'm very happy. The only thing, I guessed the sound a little "dry", with the original strings, so I changed for a new set of D'Addario EJ 15- 0.010-0.047. Now it sound's great, and the touch soloing or playing chords is very nice, and the action came very low, just the way I like it. I had seen a review at Guitar lessons.com, and the guy said it had no low end, but it´s not really true. I had seen people saying that light string has no sound, or project low sound, but what I got is a very good sound, excellent low end, mellow and bright too. I´m very satisfied. Thank you Musician's Friend´s for keeping all these reviews I saw, it´s very usefull for all.

              Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              It pains me to say that after six years of my long love affair with this guitar, my preamp has started shorting out. I decided to go shopping for the Martin I've always wanted...and it was like trying to find the girl to replace your first love. I bought a 000 and I liked it - for awhile. I dumped her and bought a DX1AE. The DX1AE is like a guitar I've never had before...such deep, curvy lows; rich sound and belts when you smack it hard; very nice, neutral appointments. However my broken heart is not healed. Not one guitar I've played (Except for its sister, the FGX700SC) sounds as good plugged in - even the high priced, high maintenance gals. I know what strings she likes, what picks she likes (yes, picks), and can tune it by the feel of the slack in the string. I've truly developed a bond with this girl.

              I look at the sad FGX720SCA sitting in the corner, and I brush one small cobweb from the tuning pegs. I strum my first chord and I remembered all the times I had with this guitar, out on the town, in the booth, in the back of my car...I decide for old times' sake to plug it in. I replace the battery and after a smack on the guitar my joy returns. The signal is spotty with movement but the electronics are working! Magical! Don't tell me guitars don't have feelings!! She came back to me! And so my love affair continues...

              Nothing will replace you, my love.

              Martin who???

              from Cambridge, Ohio

              Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I was in my local music shop playing around not planning on buying anything. I strummed a few Taylors, Martins, Epiphones the I grabbed this beast. I checked out 10 minutes later and I haven't laid it down since. It has the low end of a full size Martin and the highs of most Taylors. Unpluged or plugged in I have no complaints other than the tuner in mine is quite sharp but I use my own or through my amp. I now have an electric in a Gibson SG, a base Epiphone accoustic (amazing sound, 1 in 10,000) and now this accoustic electric cutaway Yamaha. Also the back and sides are beautiful and the workmanship is really there!! 400$ That is a STEAL!!!!!

              Pretty happy with this one

              Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I opened the box, tuned the guitar up and hit a C chord..... not pretty. It sounded like a toy (high strings just just didn't sound good). I immediately changed strings and it sounded better but not good yet. I continued to play it over the next several days (it got better and better) and on the 4th day it sounded complete. It's now a wonderful sounding guitar for the money and I just love to strum around on this Yamaha. It sounds even across the board and tone wise it has a nice bit of depth to it.Everything on this guitar is built nicely. The woods, binding, fretboard.... all of it is nicely done and I can't find anything wrong with the guitar. I don't know much about the electronics though. I haven't plugged it in and I use my own tuner. I mainly wanted a dread cutaway with the option to plug it in if I wanted to in the future.All in all, for the money I think you get a great guitar that you can enjoy playing. The action is a touch high but that depends on your taste and I'm not rushing out to get it setup so it's fine for now. I really like just sitting around and strumming on this guitar or picking some blues licks with it. I'm happy with the purchase and don't think you can go wrong with this guitar.I currently have .11 gauge Martin PBs on mine and it has a moderate bass with good mids and highs.Unless your looking for a $400 Martin or Taylor (which doesn't exist) you'll be happy with this guitar. But plan on changing the factory strings right away.
