    Saw this red beast at the guitar shop down the road and fell in love. Sat down and played it for like 15 minutes. Didnt have the cash at the time so I waited a few weeks. Went today and bought it. The pics on here dont do them justice. They are beautiful giutars and play like it. Sounds better than more expensive martins Ive played. Good to see someone is making stuff to fit the common mans pocket book and still be quality.

      Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

      I was suprised at how the guitar was packaged for shipping, however the instrument was in fine condition when I opened the box. It smelled like glue (still does although slightly less) is that just the new guitar smell?
      Overall I am very pleased with my guitar. The finish is very nice and the sound is gorgeous.It stays in tune no problem.
      I may consider lowering the action a bit since it seems a little high compared to other guitars I tested at a shop.

        Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

        I have been lucky enough to be paid to play music. I have owned guitars costing many times more than I spent on this guitar. Now I just play for my Grandchildren. Right out of the box, tuned, this guitar will tell a story! Buy it you won't be sorry!

          I owned this guitar in dark red sunburst I bought from musician's friend used. The thing looks great and sounds awesome. It stays in tune and it's very comfortable to play.
          It keeps me playing.

              Great guitar for the price. I consider it a steal. But I plead not guilty in saying that. Quit playing for along time after my last Yamaha was stolen. I'm a little rusty but the guitar helps make up for that. You can't get a better guitar for the price. I was really surprised by the quuality of the strings. That plus the guitar as a whole make for a very nice rich sound. Love it!

              another great low priced guitar from Yamaha

              from st paul, mn

              Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

              I own the Y FG730S and someone I know owns the FG720S. The FG720S has a slightly brighter sound than the FG730S. They are both great guitars for that price range. I will never sell my FG730S and may consider buying the FG720S as a backup or when I want to play with a slightly brighter sound.

              I bought this guitar 6 months ago and I very very satisfied. I also owned a Fender Sonoran California series, but the yamaha is much better. I sold my fender and i keep this beautiful dusk sun red lady.

              The Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar is the best value you can find anywhere. It sounds great, looks great, and the cost is surprisingly low for how amazing it is. You don't need to break that bank for a good guitar. Great for all levels of players.

              Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

              I've had this guitar for about 4 months and all I can say is WOW! All I had to do was file down the bottom of the saddle a bit to get the action where I like it and put a set of EJ11 strings on it and it sounds and plays like a $1K guitar. This is my nicest guitar, makes we wonder what the FG730S would be like. If you want a high quality guitar for just a little bit of cash this is your guitar.
