Summary: Bought mine on clearance. I'd gone to the store to play it several times. The $300 discount sealed the deal. I've owned Yamaha acoustics before and I don't doubt the quality. All Yamaha's I have played have quality and attention to detail that far surpass the price tag.
Pros: Comfortable To Hold, Comfortable To Play, Durable, Ebony Neck And Bridge, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Sound, Highly Responsive, Nice Hardshell Case Inc, Versatile Preamp
Summary: I bought this guitar about a month ago now and I play it everyday. I really loved this guitar at the shop when I played it and it just keeps growing on me! I love it! The all rosewood body has a smooth balance to it, the shape has a great midrange scoop on it that makes it easy to sing with.
Pros: Ebony Fingerboard, Electronics, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive, Low Action, Price, Rosewood Body, Solid Spruce Top
Summary: I had been a professional guitarist during the 1990's. Now I'm semi-pro. I have literally played every make of guitar there is. When I played the A3R, I left and it bothered me for about a week and I came back and bought one.
Pros: Durable, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Preamp, Great Setup, Great Sound, Highly Responsive, Well balanced
Summary: Better than anything in it's price range. Such excellent definition and sound. Makes me a better player and takes me places musically I haven't gone before. Wish it were tad louder, both plugged and unplugged, but that is about it. Beautiful, very well made, coupled with my THR10 it is breathtaking.
Pros: Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive
Summary: I use this guitar on stage as a worship leader. The AA battery requirement is great since the church always has extra AA batteries on hand. The neck profile is comfortable all the way to the uppermost frets.
Pros: Aas Instead Of 9v, Comfortable Size, Durable, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Hardshell Case, Highly Responsive, Mic Modeling, Muting Tuner, Neck Profile
Summary: Sensationelle Gitarre! Sehr gut verarbeitet, super Klang - sowohl akustisch als auch über P.A. Hatte selten so ein inspirierendes Instrument in meinen Händen. Vor Allem der Hals ist durch sein offenporiges Finish unglaublich angenehm zu spielen.
