The FG750S Folk Acoustic Guitar is a stunning instrument that offers pro features at a modest price. Crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and sycamore back and sides, it produces rich, vibrant tone and outstanding projection. Die-cast tuners with vintage-style plastic pegs keep tuning locked in. The looks are enhanced with extensive tortoise and black and white binding on the body and neck.

I shopped on line, combing over every review I could find on many of the guitars in this price range. After looking every day for 4 months, I narrowed it down to the Yamaha FG's or LL's. Finally I located a dealer and paid a visit. I played a 720, a 730, and some LL6's, all fine instruments. I actually bought a 730 electric later just to plug in. But that day the clear winner was the ALMIGHTY FG 750S. Wow ! It's so lightweight, it's hard to believe the volume it can acheive. Tone monster is all I can say. It gives you everything an acoustic can. Unique looks set it apart from the rest. Plays great sound is all wood not strings. I love this guitar. And so will you.
I have owned this model for about 3 years now. I love it. It has some sweet tone I would put up against Martins and Taylors, only very unique and all its own. For the price it cannot be beat. Also, it came with the action set up just right, all frets playable and the intonation was right on the money. What more could you ask for? This is a great all around acoustic for bangin' out some loud chords or doing arpeggios with finger picking. Does it all and does it well. I currently own a lot of guitars, been playing longer than I like to admit.
I noticed this guitar at my local music center. I picked it up originally only to compare to the Yamaha I had previously boughten a little over a year previously. Holy cow was I taken back. This guitar sounds BETTER than the Taylors I tried. I could not believe the sound that came out. NO fret buzz and it just sounded beautiful. I'm a college student and cash is low, but SOMEDAY it will be in my hands!
This is a great acoustic...very comparable to a Seagull S6 or a breedlove Passport 20, it's has a little more playability than the breedlove with a bigger sound, and the major difference between the seagull S6 is the neck feel both are good, the yamaha being more traditional, set up was very good, no adjustment needed to made what so ever, the sound is also very clear, especially in the mid-range, sounds is very comparable to a Taylor in that respect, but not quite as loud, but for the $$ its hard to beat, fit and finish was extremely well done, solid sitka spruce top,with sycamore back and sides, this guitar should only get better with age
My wife and I set out to originally buy a Martin but I found this beauty on the wall and played on it..kept going back to it and ultimately ended up purchasing it! The only problem that I can see is with the humidity levels as it seems to dry out rather fastly. I am from Pennsylvania and it is winter so forced air heating requires me to use Dampits but other than that it sounds just gorgeous! I use martin light gauge strings on it and it still shines! Love the flamed maple and I get compliments on it all the time! Thank you. I only wish it had a pickup in it. Buy this guitar, you won't be dissapointed!
I've played guitar on and off for a good 40 years, and just got back into an "on period" (hopefully for good). I got this guitar to replace my old acoustic, and I was impressed at its quality, feel, and sound from the first strum. The neck is smooth and fretting the strings (even the heavier than I'm used to Yamaha strings that come with it) is as easy as on my Strat. This guitar is steal at the price.
I have been playing guitar for 29 years now. I have a nice collection of instruments, and to this point a 1979 Ibanez Artist Series had been my acoustic of choice. I have an assortment of Ibanez and Takamine guitars, not ever wanting to spend too much (my first very expensive guitar will be an artist series tobacco strat, and I work too hard to blow my money on that now). My Ibanez's soundboard split on me after moving from New Mexico to Missouri years ago. It held on until just recently, and ultimately a truss rod break blew it out. I was sad, and needed a guitar that could fill it's shoes...and in my collection there was not one. I purchased this guitar hoping that after some time, seasoning and setup it might come close. After having it for a month, I will tell you this: twice the price or half, and straight out of the box this is the best sounding and playing guitar I've ever had. It is a workhorse, you can play out on it without worrying (or tuning every night...which is nice). It looks a lot better than the pic - the back and sides are flamed and nicely bookmatched. The neck has a nice contrast and the body has nice binding (matching the neck and headstock). Tuners are solid for stock tuners - the quality vs. price ratio on this instrument is awesome. Don't hesitate.
I have compared a lot of guitars in this price range. The fit & finish are excellent. The sound is top notch. The action is very smooth. In my opinion this is the best acoustic guitar in this price range. I did put a set of new strings on it but out of the box it was still very good. I really don't think I will have the need to buy a more expensive guitar after this one. Thanks Yamaha!
I was looking online. etc. for a good value in a guitar, and came across this one at a local music store. In the online pics, you cannot see how beautiful this guitar is with the flamed sycamore back and sides, but I'll assure you that it is stunning. I compared it with several Martin and Takamini? guitars in the store, and it had the best resonance, but I will note that it is more of a mellow sounding instrument. If you want big and bold, this is not your instrument. It is incredably easy to play, picking or chording, and I will always keep and always play this one. I'll probably change tuners and replace the nut/bridge with bone as this instrument is worth beefing up and keeping. Great for singing accompanyment, learning, and all around playing. I play it every day, and have for more than a year. A real players guitar!!!
Yamaha acoutsic guitars are some of your best bang for the buck... seriously, is there really a better sounding guitar in the price range? I really like the FG750s. The tone is so rich and bright.It's a comfortable guitar...I changed the strings right away.My only complain is that the pick guard is horrific. It makes the guitar look like a cheap toy. I wish Yamaha would just put a clear guard on like the Larivees... but I understand that Yamaha is all about function and performance... and that awful thick cheap plastic wafer they call a pickguard does it's job ;-)
