Obviously this isn't a high end Gibson acoustic, but for the price, this guitar comes close. Even the gig bag, strap, strings, video, and electronic tuner are great for the starting musician.
Fantastic tuners, excellent video included, amazing electronic tuner, and a beautiful and easy to play acoustic guitar.
For its price, this guitar has excellent quality. I've had it for about 5 years, and its still got a gorgeous tone and feel.
The value of this guitar is 10 merely because its one of the few guitars I own that has never given me a problem and maintains a great sound after years and years of use.

I have owned this guitar since 2006, and it is a pretty decent starter guitar EXCEPT the action is about a mile high. For non-guitar people, this is the distance from the strings to the fretboard. You don't want it to be high, especially when you are learning, because it makes it harder to press down on the strings. Since this is a beginner instrument, making it with high action is counter productive. It is a good price, and it is novel to get all the accessories, but there are better beginner level guitars. Start off on a playable instrument and you will want to stick with it. Start out on a cumbersome, difficult instrument and you will not want to continue playing.

I would not recommend this to a beginner, but if you are experienced and looking for a beater guitar or you want to take the time and expense to lower the action, this is not bad at all.

Perfect choice for a college student

Pros

  • Great sound for the price

Cons

    • Learning, jamming

    Comments about Yamaha GigMaker Acoustic Guitar Pack:

    I bought this for my daughter who is a college student and had played a bit before but never very seriously. She loves it. The sound is great for the price, it's easy to play, and when we compared it with other guitars at or even above that price it was clear that it was well-made and had a really sparkling and sophisticated sound. We made a smart choice and she is delighted with it.

      Great Christmas Gift....

      By David Watt

      from Charleston SC.

      Comments about Yamaha GigMaker Acoustic Guitar Pack:

      I always give the gig maker as a present. As far as students it perfect, as a Christmas gift it was outstanding. Its a value. I always tell people that if you want to learn to play buy a reasonably priced acoustic. Yes you can spend a lot more, but if playing is not your cup of tea, you can post it on a bulletin board and it will be gone in a few days. Usually for what you paid for it.... However, if playing guitar turns into a obsessive compulsive habit, you have a guitar that will season into a great axe... I have been playing for years, and over those years have given a gig maker at least 10 times.... Everyone has been thrilled..... Thanks MF and Yamaha for making a product so available and reasonable priced... Giving this guitar made my Holiday season!!!! Dave.

              • Practicing

              Comments about Yamaha GigMaker Acoustic Guitar Pack:

              I've been playing for over 30 years with the last 8 spent playing a Martin D15 Custom I bought from MF. I recently started to teach a small class of middle school students and realized I needed more guitars than the 3 acoustics I've been using. Although the D15 has a few scars from numerous gigs, I've worried about its well-being. I've been looking for decent but inexpensive guitars for the class and as possible recommendations to my students. I bought the gigmaker pack from a local store this afternoon on the recommendation of the manager (who I bought my 1st guitar from in 1981) and my firt impression has been positive. I like the sound. The sunburst finish and tortoise pickguard look good. The tuners seem to be good as is the overall fit and finish. The action seems pretty good but is more fatiguing than the D15, perhaps due in part to heavier strings (12-53) than the extra lights (11-50) I'm used to. The frets seem well seated and there are no sharp or rough edges.
              This seems to be a very nice guitar, especially considering the price. The extras in the pack are a bonus. The gigbag is very thin and since the guitar will be transported once a week I'll order the case tomorrow. I've not tried the tuner but needed a backup (my Sabine still works well with electrical tape). I'll watch the DVD to determine its utility with my beginning students. I'll install a second strap button and replace the strings when they dull with GHS ELs. I'll order an Epiphone DR100 tomorrow along with the case for the Yamaha.
              At this point, I would feel very comfortable recommending this guitar (and pack) to my students. The tuner (assuming it functions well) is a necessity (pitch pipes are next to useless for most beginners).
