Comments about Yamaha FSX700SC Solid Top Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Hi! BedRock here,

I needed a small-bodied guitar to practice on in my living room/studio where there's very little room to move around. This new Yamaha FSX700SC was to be my "beater" so I wouldn't get scratches, dings and sweat all over my more expensive guitars - an '88 Ovation Elite and a Takamine Specialty Series EF508-C cedar top. I've had six Yamaha acoustics in my day. My first decent guitar at age 11 (1973) was a Yamaha dreadnought. I forget the model. I currently own a '95 Yamaha FG460S-12A 12-string that's a few steps above this one, but the FSX sure didn't turn out to be a beater. I love this guitar. I too think the sandburst finish is gorgeous and classy.

The excellent workmanship is typical of Yamaha. The design concept is also outstanding. They saved money by using nato wood on the body and neck and put it where it counts: in the solid spruce soundboard. Whatever you may have heard, nato is an excellent tonewood with the same physical characteristics and sound as mahogany, though it is not in the mahogany family. It commonly grows throughout SE Asia and is inexpensive and plentiful, which is why high-end guitar makers and players find it undesirable, NOT because of the sound. Nato even has a nice "silky" grain and on the FSX, it looks like they shaded it a little to blend with the top.

Want to hear something cool? Many (or even most) acoustics have the masses of the neck and body out of balance. Take a Kyser or similar capo (not a heavy one like a Shubb) and clip it to your headstock. The FSX will bloom with much more resonance and sustain. For a heavier guitar use a heavier capo and/or a Fender "Fat Finger". They work. I tune all my acoustics down a whole step and keep a capo at the 2nd fret all the time to get this benefit and to make them easier to play with arthritis.

The saddle transducer isn't bad but even most high-end ones can have plasticy treble. I'll be adding a soundhole pup and a stereo endpin jack so I can process them separately and blend them. I may even record with this guitar. Aside from that, my FSX700SC looks great, sounds great and plays great. It's worth every penny I paid for it and more. A lot of bang for a modest buck.

      Comments about Yamaha FSX700SC Solid Top Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I received my FSX700 a week ago. This is my third Yamaha the others being a 2010 FG730 and a 1976 FG312. As always Yamaha delivered an instrument with a flawless fit and finish and top drawer materials. . I have the Sandburst finish and it is stunning. One design feature that does not appear in the description is that the fret board is bound in black to match the body and that the side position markers are pearl to match the fretboard markers yamaha logo inlay and floret on the head plate.. I had expected an un bound fretboard so this was a nice surprise when I took the guitar from the shipping carton. The headstock is overlaid with a particularly attractive piece of nicely figured rosewood. I just played it at a gig and it worked perfectly. It is very comfortable to play standing on stage. Amplified tone is very good. The guitar lacks some projection unplugged and the trebles are a little dull, but this should improve once the guitar is played in. None of them sound good brand new. Over all it is another example of the excellent value Yamaha is known for.

      Comments about Yamaha FSX700SC Solid Top Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This was the second Yamaha guitar that I have owned. The first is a Yamaha AES620HB made in Korea. It is a fantastic instrument with features expected on a guitar twice its cost. I was a little sceptical with this A/E.

      The fit and finish are very nice for an entry level guitar. The sound is bright and articulate. The controls are adequate. It is very easy to play. The on-board tuner works well.

      My two gripes are that the finish on the neck is satin. I would have preferred that it was finished the same as the body. As i mentioned, there was no strap button near the neck of the guitar. I had one at home and put it on myself. Its just a small thing, but for the price, I thought it should have one.
