    Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The moment I played my first note on this guitar, I knew I fell in love. I bought the brown sunburst finish and I am absolutely captivated. Every note on this guitar has such a rich and clear sound. I originally bought some coated phosphor strings to start playing this baby, but the strings that it came with sounded so good that I didn't bother replacing them. Playing this guitar just feels right. I don't know how many guitars I've been through, but I have been playing for 8+ years. This has to be the BEST acoustic I've ever played. I have not had a chance to use it on an amp but I've heard great things about it. What are you waiting for? Go buy one!!!!!

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I was looking for a good 6 strings acoustic guitar-electric guitar, and this review was so usefull for me, I read it a lot, and choose a Yamaha FGX 720 SCA, at my favorite dealer here in Brazil(Milsons, some thing like "Thousand Sounds), and now I can say, it's a VERY GOOD Guitar. All things people has talking about is true, and so I'm very happy. The only thing, I guessed the sound a little "dry", with the original strings, so I changed for a new set of D'Addario EJ 15- 0.010-0.047. Now it sound's great, and the touch soloing or playing chords is very nice, and the action came very low, just the way I like it. I had seen a review at Guitar lessons.com, and the guy said it had no low end, but it´s not really true. I had seen people saying that light string has no sound, or project low sound, but what I got is a very good sound, excellent low end, mellow and bright too. I´m very satisfied. Thank you Musician's Friend´s for keeping all these reviews I saw, it´s very usefull for all.

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          It pains me to say that after six years of my long love affair with this guitar, my preamp has started shorting out. I decided to go shopping for the Martin I've always wanted...and it was like trying to find the girl to replace your first love. I bought a 000 and I liked it - for awhile. I dumped her and bought a DX1AE. The DX1AE is like a guitar I've never had before...such deep, curvy lows; rich sound and belts when you smack it hard; very nice, neutral appointments. However my broken heart is not healed. Not one guitar I've played (Except for its sister, the FGX700SC) sounds as good plugged in - even the high priced, high maintenance gals. I know what strings she likes, what picks she likes (yes, picks), and can tune it by the feel of the slack in the string. I've truly developed a bond with this girl.

          I look at the sad FGX720SCA sitting in the corner, and I brush one small cobweb from the tuning pegs. I strum my first chord and I remembered all the times I had with this guitar, out on the town, in the booth, in the back of my car...I decide for old times' sake to plug it in. I replace the battery and after a smack on the guitar my joy returns. The signal is spotty with movement but the electronics are working! Magical! Don't tell me guitars don't have feelings!! She came back to me! And so my love affair continues...

          Nothing will replace you, my love.

          Martin who???

          By dougieb88

          from Cambridge, Ohio

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I was in my local music shop playing around not planning on buying anything. I strummed a few Taylors, Martins, Epiphones the I grabbed this beast. I checked out 10 minutes later and I haven't laid it down since. It has the low end of a full size Martin and the highs of most Taylors. Unpluged or plugged in I have no complaints other than the tuner in mine is quite sharp but I use my own or through my amp. I now have an electric in a Gibson SG, a base Epiphone accoustic (amazing sound, 1 in 10,000) and now this accoustic electric cutaway Yamaha. Also the back and sides are beautiful and the workmanship is really there!! 400$ That is a STEAL!!!!!

          Pretty happy with this one

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I opened the box, tuned the guitar up and hit a C chord..... not pretty. It sounded like a toy (high strings just just didn't sound good). I immediately changed strings and it sounded better but not good yet. I continued to play it over the next several days (it got better and better) and on the 4th day it sounded complete. It's now a wonderful sounding guitar for the money and I just love to strum around on this Yamaha. It sounds even across the board and tone wise it has a nice bit of depth to it.Everything on this guitar is built nicely. The woods, binding, fretboard.... all of it is nicely done and I can't find anything wrong with the guitar. I don't know much about the electronics though. I haven't plugged it in and I use my own tuner. I mainly wanted a dread cutaway with the option to plug it in if I wanted to in the future.All in all, for the money I think you get a great guitar that you can enjoy playing. The action is a touch high but that depends on your taste and I'm not rushing out to get it setup so it's fine for now. I really like just sitting around and strumming on this guitar or picking some blues licks with it. I'm happy with the purchase and don't think you can go wrong with this guitar.I currently have .11 gauge Martin PBs on mine and it has a moderate bass with good mids and highs.Unless your looking for a $400 Martin or Taylor (which doesn't exist) you'll be happy with this guitar. But plan on changing the factory strings right away.

          I have owned this guitar for about a year and cant find one thing wrong. It has the best acoustic sound I could ask for in a guitar. It has a rich clean tone even in the amp. No complaints.

          Songwriter's dream

          By Zer0

          from Midwest USA

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This is much more than a guitar. It has helped shape me as a musician, helped me write tons of songs and has been there all through my darkest days and my happiest moments. Over a hundred songs have been written on this guitar, over a dozen shows have been played on it. I continue to use it at my church and they still compliment me two years later (!!) on how good it sounds. The sound tech loves it. And it NEVER (I mean NEVER) sounds bad once it's plugged in. EQ is there but you'll never need to touch it. Tuning is bright, accurate, and easy to read. It stands on its own in a mix of instruments on stage. I don't care what anyone says, nothing near a thousand dollars TOUCHES this guitar. I'm not the only one who knows this. It is a tool, a workman, a voice. Much more than a guitar. Yamaha has outdone themselves with this instrument of choice.

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I have owned my Yami for about six months now and it is a beautiful guitar, awesome sound with Dunlop brass strings. I play it quite hard at gigs and it just looks at me and says "would you like fries with that". I found the action a bit high and have tweaked it a bit and now I'm very happy. That was my only bugbear after purchase. It has a really big powerful sound that unplugged or plugged will stand tall along side most other guitars. The pre amp and it's usability have proved flawless and easy to use Look no further unless you own a bank!

          Sounds killer acoustically...

          Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX720SCA Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Even BETTER plugged in. The rich, natural warm tones that come from the guitar acoustically inspire writing creativity while the onboard preamp and EQ will blow your mind in any setting. I've owned this guitar for roughly 2 years now and the amped tones would SLAY most Taylors and Gibsons any day. Very pretty, vibrant, natural; no piezo-icky-crunching on glass tones here. If you can't plug in, this guitar holds its own with a mic in front of it as well. For recording, I've never captured an easier, more evenly-layered acoustic tone. With a creative mix of both preamp and condenser tones, you can get a very interesting combination you wouldn't find else-where. This guitar stays in tune for days (sometimes weeks), looks great, feels teriffic, and takes a beating. The volume knob on mine became jiggly after a couple months of use but that's nothing at all. I've played Yamaha's most of my life but have had Gretch, Taylor, and a few other pricey brands but nothing compares. Just buy one.
