Luxury appointments and outstanding Yamaha craftsmanship with a diminutive price tag.
The solid Sitka spruce top on the Yamaha FG730S acoustic guitar generates amazingly full resonance and warm timbre that's kept crisp by the rosewood back and sides. The full body, neck, and head binding together with a tortoise pickguard and beautiful finishes make this a truly fine-looking instrument.

great guitar for the money. if you can upgrade with bone nut/saddle it will make a world of difference. if you can afford it, slap some grovers on as well. those upgrades along with medium gauge strings will make this puppy sing! great value from yamaha.
Looks and sounds great. Took 2/64ths off the bridge, and this thing plays like a guitar costing six time or seven times more. It's a super deal on a super guitar. Buy it!
I bought this guitar at guitar center about a week ago. I compared several guitars within a 500.00 price range, martin, breedlove, taylor, etc... None of them could compete with the sound. Sure they all sounded good, especially the Breedlove C200. But yamaha's attention to detail won me over. Not one flaw can be found on the construction of this beautiful guitar. I got the cherry sunburst model with gold hardware. It does help having a guitar that is just as beautiful, as it sounds....Makes you wanna play more!
I went into Guitar Center one Sunday evening just to shop around and play some expensive guitars a college student such as me doesn't normally get to handle. Of course, the first thing I did was go into the smaller acoustic room where the higher priced(Martin, Taylor, Gibson, etc...) brands are. I played many of them and enjoyed it. I walked out and played a few of the Epiphone Masterbilt series, and picked this one up by accident because a Masterbilt was next to it. I played it anyways, though I have NEVER been a fan of Yamaha, but believe me, this tied for the best guitar(along with a Gibson Dove) I played that day. I went in on Monday and had it shipped to my house that was 3 hours away. Was still in perfect tune upon receiving it. Great Guitar, only thing I don't love about it, is the fact that the back and sides aren't solid, but you would never know the difference.
I have 7 guitars now and this is one of my most played acoustics. It's smooth and bright and has wonderful bottom as well. The price is great also. The person who spoke about the Martins and Taylors...well, I have 2 Martins and they are both awesome guitars as well. But they are both 12 strings and if I compared a Martin 6 with the 735S, I'd say the Yamaha wins as far as I can tell.
I'm a longtime serious guitarist and have been a luthier/repair guy for many years. I knew Yamaha products were good, and that Yamaha always did their homework in order to be competitive, but I was pleasantly surprised by this instrument. I don't have a lot of money to spend on guitars these days, and I've recently sold off all of my vintage guitars on eBay to pay bills, etc. I've been looking for a decent guitar for two or three years that I could afford, and most of them were junk---even the ones that were out of my price range. I've been a Musician's Friend customer for a long time, and I thought I'd cruise the web site and peruse the Yamahas. Along with a 20% off coupon I received in the mail, I got a great deal on the 735S. After setting it up, I'm telling you that this guitar is all I need. It outperforms many guitars that cost cost far more. Yamaha's quality control is really good, too. This guitar is a steal, and I'm a very critical player with very good ears. Mine arrived with a very bright and beautiful cherry sunburt finish, and it;s a joy to behold.
This guitar sounded so much better than he inexpensive martins and taylors. Excellent bass response, wonderful high end. Midrange is present. Projection is great. You cant beat this for the price. If you are considering a cheap martin, or taylor, think twice!
This is only my third acoustic steel strings guitar and so far the best. I've had an inexpensive Fender and a CC057 Ovation Celebrity. May not be fair to compare a Shallow body like my Ovation to this guitar but the diffrence is really big. This is one of those guitars that sounds so nice, sweet and loud that is hard to put down. Excellent for creating new music since every new idea sounds amazing through this guitar. I copared this to a Taylor running in the high 900.00 and they were pretty darn close. Whit such a quality instrument, I don't think I will be buying any other acoustic, even if I had money to waste. I would waste my money in something else cause I love this guitar. Like everything, try it before you buy it and get convinced. I did.
I really like this acoustic, everything about it's great. The sound, the action, the look, everything, it's just an all around great acoustic, and best of all it's at a really fair price.
you do get what you pay for. this guitar has a slick neck (kinda smooth and silky like my ibanez prestige) and has a nice, reverberating tone. only *major* problem I had is the low E string plastic bridge peg got stuck when I was re-stringing the guitar and the head of the peg broke off. now I don't have a low E string as the base of the peg is stuck in the bridge of the guitar (and won't come out!). this hasn't happened to any other acoustic guitar I've ever owned. looks very nice in person.
