      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.

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

      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.

              I absolutely LOVE this guitar!! I usually like to play a guitar before I buy it, but this time I only read reviews online and listened to some YouTube clips of it. I had never heard of Sandburst before and really liked the look of it. I can not put this guitar down!! It plays very nicely, sounds fantastic, and looks great! I let a friend play it, and he didn't want to put it down either. I'm very impressed with this guitar.

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

                I am not an experienced player (self taught pick and strum for a few years), and have always found acoustic guitars difficult to play. This is not. I can jump to a barr F or G minor without worrying that I will get dead strings or buzzing. It plays all the way up and down the neck without inappropriate vibrations and if it is in tune at the first fret, it is still in tune at the 11th fret. It is set up perfectly straight out of the box. It has the rich ring, resonance, and projection that you can only get from a solid top. I am very impressed, especially considering the price. I haven't used the electronics capabilities yet, so can't review that.

                I picked this up as a "condition 4" used, and had concerns that there would be things wrong for the extremely reduced price. There is nothing wrong with the sound. There are visual defects (some small scratches and a pretty big ding on the bottom corner where someone obviously dropped it), but nothing that hurts the sound. Since I couldn't return a "condition 4," MF was very good about describing exactly what the flaws were before I made the purchase, and they certainly did not understate the extent of the damage. They also e-mailed me pictures of the guitar. I was as happy with the customer service as I am with the guitar.

                Amazing Guitar

                By 

                from Upstate New York

                Ask me a question

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

                I bought this guitar for half price. It was new and when I saw the price in the store I picked it up and started playing it. I was sold immediately - the sound, action, and finish were comparable to guitars costing hundreds more. As it turns out,someone dropped it and smashed the bottom back edge which crushed the wood fibers, but there were no cracks, which had no effect on the guitar. I fixed it with epoxy and it has been my go-to guitar for almost a year. It sounds great plugged or unplugged - very comfortable to play and it stays in tune for weeks. The electronics are great and offer an amazing amount of diversity in sound. I may buy another one before they stop making this fine guitar - it is worth much more than the asking price! I own another more expensive Yamaha Classical Nylon NCX700 which is also a spectacular guitar. No one beats Yamaha for the price. I prefer the sound and feel of this guitar to my Epiphone EJ-200SC.
