    Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have not felt such an easy playing guitar and was shocked at the price being so low. It is rich in tone and does not go out of tune. Nice looking and is easy to hold. The tuner works great and all i needed was a strap holder grommet drilled in by my friend . Light enough not to hurt the neck or shoulder as I have disc problems. I play this guitar every chance i get during the day or night. In my opinion it is the best deal out there for the money. I do recommend this guitar for all levels of musicians. Sounds great on my Fender Champ Tube Guitar Amp.

      Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar for practice and jamming with friends. It is definitely perfect for this. Compared to my other acoustic guitars, it naturally has a highly resonant and warm mid range sound. If you're looking for heavier low end, a string change might work. I'm going to try a different set of strings to achieve this. haven't plugged it in to test the EQ/Gain/Pickup electronics yet, but the built-in tuner is very convenient. In my opinion, this is the best guitar you can buy for the price. I'm very satisfied with it.

            Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I reviewed a lot of guitars before buying this for my son who has been playing for years. I have been playing for 30 yrs and own 6 other guitars. We read revues that said this was a great guitar for under three hundred. We played many (including ones that were priced considerably higher). The sound and balance of this guitar is excellent.

            The best so far...

            Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            This Yamaha guitar is fantastic! Our family plays mostly acoustic but wanted a guitar that could be plugged in if ever needed. We first went to our local Guitar Center store to try out a bunch of acoustic-electric. We wanted something that matched the deep sound of the Yamaha we already owned and were willing to buy any brand that could offer that. Surprisingly the other brands sounded "twangy." We narrowed it down to the Yamaha APX500 and Yamaha FGX700SC. The 500 had a more unique design and sounded slightly better when plugged in but the 700, by far, sounded better unplugged and still sounded awesome plugged in. This guitar is truly beautiful in design and sound.

            I have not been playing for very long but have sampled (bought) several different guitars. Yamaha has made a believer of me. from the banged up old F110 i bought at goodwill to the A Series, you can tell....it's a Yamaha, 'nuff said.

            I bought this guitar to play live with and retire my vintage guitars which I have been hauling all over the country for the past 30 years.When and if this one ever gives out I will buy another one.It has a great sound,an easy to grip neck,and to be honest I have not put this guitar down since January.It sounds great through my P.A. and for the price it was exactly what I had been searching for.

            Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I had just found a broken topped acoustic and was none too happy with that and a broken other brand from a different on line company when i ordered this from MF. The other company call me unceasingly like honda dealers, merely looking for compliments, reading boiler plate 'thank yous!' for no good reason. I finally told them that after 3 returns, I was going back to Musicians Friend. Happy with the tone, the intonation, the resonance, and the electrontics, which are giving good results in both recording rigs and acoustic amps jumped into various rigs. I traded in many high end brands last year, another disappointing chain store, was given peanuts for them, and am pleased with this Yamaha. My fingers are vintage, not old worn guitars so I rid myself of the old and rang in the new, which has re-inpired my playing.

                Been playing a long time, played many, many guitars. It doesn't sound like a Taylor or a Martin, but it sounds pretty darn good. It plays very easily. Set up was perfect out of the box. My opinion - best bang for the buck out there.
