      Yamaha got it right on this one. I feel that I got my money's worth, and more. With a little nut, fret end & action tweaking, it's become a great guitar. The coated Yamaha strings sound very good, as well.

        Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

        When I tried out this guitar in the store, it sounded so rich and full that only guitars that cost more than five times as much (or more) could rival the sound. The solid spruce top resonates wonderfully, projects well, and has great sustain. The neck is thin, smooth, and fast. Fit and finish is great. Try it and you will not be disappointed!

          Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          I bought this guitar for my 10 year old son for Christmas as an upgrade for his 3/4 size acoustic that sounded terrible. He's been playing for a year now and wanted a full sized guitar with a smaller body. This thing blew me away with how great it sounds for the price. I find myself grabbing it and jamming whenever I pass by his room. Of course, it doesn't sound as good as my Martin, but at two bills, it is an excellent value. It sounds very balanced especially when finger picking. I find the shape and size of the neck very playable for bar chords. He throws it in a gig bag for lessons and bangs it around, and it manages to stay in tune with minimal adjustment. I am planning on picking up another to keep at our lake house during the summer.

            Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

            Yamaha FS600S is a true "folk" style guitar. The body size bout is 15" - comfortable to hold with no sacrifice in sound quality. Yamaha also makes the FG600S which is a dreadnaught guitar with lower bout at 15 1/2 inches (larger body size)but this guitar is a bit bulky and I prefer the smaller body size.

                  Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

                  I bought this guitar a few months ago I will keep it brief. If anyone wants to have a quality instrument with a very low investment, this is definitely your guitar. I would swear this is a mid-level guitar in a blind test. Sounds great, virtually zero fret buzz out of the box, stays in tune suprisingly well, even in aggressive hot-to-cold temperature changes. My one compaint...I have no idea what could possibly cause this, but I've broken several strings on this thing when they were less than a week old. That has never happened to me on any other guitar in normal circumstances. They seem to be breaking at the bridge every time. The problem could be solved by getting some fresh string pegs made out of a softer material. I have no idea but it's worth a shot. Perhaps my problem is a freak incident as it does seem incredibly odd. Anyway, this STILL remains as my number one recommended acoustic for beginners with an uncertain commitment level, or for experienced musicians who need a cheap workhorse.

                  Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

                  It is sad that the Yamaha FS700S guitar hasn't been more popular than what it is. The smaller body probably scares folks off. How sad. I bought this for a beginning guitar student, and was impressed with the sound. My set-up for more ideal sound: I replaced the saddle and bridge pins with Tusq, for more sustain, clarity, and tone. I lowered the string tension down three frets (a lot!) to obtain richer overtones. Here is where the smaller body is an advantage; it allows one to use lower tunings, giving the sound of a bigger guitar.
                  The student is a medium sized woman, who is too small to handle a dreadnaught. She loves this instrument.
                  Drawbacks: Being a perfectionist, it would be nice if it came in at least laminated rosewood, for yet richer tone. I would also like to see it available in a maple back, for an awesome bluegrass tone when played in the lower tunings. For what little you pay, it is a great deal and gives good tone for the wood that came with it.
                  I do recommend this guitar!

                  Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

                  People ask me all the time about acoustic guitars. You want one with a solid top, Yamaha's 700 S has that. S stands for solid. And it's spruce, and it is well braced. Over bracing kills the sound. This guitar comes with lights and they drive the top well. I have an idea mediums would make it holler, if you want loud out of an acoustic. This is a well built guitar and it's got Yamaha's finesse. It's made in Indonesia, so what, totally does not matter. What matters is these folks are doing great work. Fit and finish is good, tuners are good. Nice fret work, nice saddle and nut, action is impeccable. Can you tell I like this guitar? I would put it up against Epiphone, Hohner, Seagull, Takamine, Fender and others in the under four hundred range. You cannot beat this 700 S. I had a 720 lefty and it was a tad nicer. Put a pickup in that one for a friend, it was his first guitar. Still has it, and plays live with that Yamaha. There are lots of good guitars, this one tops the list for 199. Thanks MF for carrying the Yamaha line, they're wonderful.
