    "BEST VALUE IN ACOUSTIC GUITAR UNDER $500!"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    VERY much on a par with Godin/Seagull, Mitchells, most of the Takamines, and the Breedlove Atlas(which this one replaced). Not a boomy bottom end like Gibson, nor the brittle upper register that is typically on Taylors. Closer to a Martin in overall balance.
    Feature:
    Solid Engleman Spruce top, laminated rosewood back and sides, and a Nato/Mahogany neck with Rosewood fascia and MOP logo/name. 5-ply black and creme top binding, and single ply creme binding on the back. Nice 4mm abalone rosette. Tuners are a Grover copy, but seem to be stable and are definitely smooth in operation and getting to pitch. Gloss top, sides, and back and a satin finished neck. Vintage style frets on a nice rosewood fingerboard with small MOP position markers.
    Ease of Use:
    Plays like butter with minimal set up, if any, which I find is extremely common with this particular model Yamaha; they know they have something special here!
    Quality:
    Fit and finish is beautiful, bracing is Martin, post-war double X style. Very well built and it sounds and shows.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Have never dealt with them; but I think they would stand behind their products if needed.
    Value:
    This guitar competes with some very good models in the $500 range, but steals the show when its put up against some in the $1000+ range. Although it is built in a dedicated factory in China, it is clear Yamaha has full control of every aspect of quality in the manufacture of their instruments. It is hard to make a bad choice with any product that has their name.
    The Wow Factor:
    The sound is classic and well balanced. Rosewood with a solid Spruce top is also classic and produces very sought after tone.
    Overall:
    I saw one of these six strings last year, after having purchased the same guitar in the 12 string version. I restrung with phosphor bronze 10 guage strings, took less than 1/32 inch off of the bottom of the saddle, turned the truss rod one full turn clockwize, and replaced the pins with Tusq. You will have to look far and wide to find a better quality instrument for the amount of money spent. With pickups like the Fishman NeoD single coil, who needs the expense and hassle of 9V batteries, under-saddle transducers, and preamp controls with knobs that disappear when you need them.
