      Started playing again after a 40 year absence and needed a new guitar. After checking guitars in this price range, selected this as the best buy for the money. Sounds as good as guitars costing much more.

        Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

        I like the guitar's feel and neck, although mine was not perfectly sanded. The sound it very clean and very bright. Very nice for playing with fingers or picking strings, but strumming with a pic will reveal limitations on the bottom end.

        Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

        I have 3 more expensive guitars; and I bought this guitar as a knock-around guitar for practicing and for company to play when they come over. But now, I won't really be knocking it around. It is very easy to play, stays in tune, is light-weight with a good feel and I just have a lot of fun playing it. If I had it to do all over again; I would buy this guitar as my 1st beginner guitar. You can't go wrong for the price

        Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

        The pros:It sounds great,very full bottom end,good mids,not sparkling highs but not bad for the price.Also the neck feels great,this one actually has a flamed nato neck,but honestly that's just the luck of the draw.Now the cons:The tops are inconsistent(again luck of the draw)this one has an annoying looking imperfection(a small knot) right in the middle of the top.People have complained about the tuners,for the price they are comparable if not better than most in this price range,I personally have not had any major issues with them.The plastic bridge upon inspection seemed a bit loose fitting,I put some tape around the bottom so it fits better and doesn't fall out when you change the strings,but these are relatively minor gripes;for a 2 beans guitar it sounds and plays great.Why they didn't put a dot on the 3rd fret I really don't know,cost cutting perhaps- the FG710S folk model has that option.If I had the choice again I may have went with that model since it also has an (arguably)better quality spruce top.If you look past the little things and LISTEN to the guitar you may realize(as I did) that this is indeed a great guitar for the price.

          Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          I'm mainly a flute and banjo player. But I picked up an old Harmony Acoustic Guitar ar an Estate Sale; in great condition and good sound. That is how the seed was planted to learning the acoustic guitar. This Yamaha looked like a good deal, so I purchased it to augment the Harmony, which tends to slip on the tuning. Love the sound, fit, and finish of this Yamaha. Beautiful sound. I use it mostly for gospel, county, and Latin music.

            This guitar is exceptional for the money. It has agreat sound . It's size makes practicing for longer periods easier. The guitar arrived in perfect condition. I chose the tobacco burst and I think it looks beautiful. The action seems good to me but I don't pretend to be an expert. . In summation this guitar is a great value .Its got a solid wood top you don't always get that at this price point

              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.

              Going to replace strings and get them lowered. Other than that, it has rich full sound and looks are killer.

                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.
