Great Guitar for the cost

Summary: Been playing guitar for over 15 years, but have always hated how much a decent guitar costs. It's a hobby, and I don't want to spend $600 just for a good acoustic/electric. When I found the Yamaha, I was very skeptical. But, I went to a local guitar shop, played one there and found that I really liked it. Came back and ordered it online for cheaper. It has very low action but, unlike a lot of acoustics set up this way, has absolutely no buzzing.
Summary: I've been playing guitar for 3 years and I just received the Yamaha APX500 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway in the Natural Finish. I LOVE THIS GUITAR !!! For starters I'm 5'5" with small hands and the thinness and small size of this guitar fits me perfectly. This would be a great guitar for a child to learn on as it will not overpower them. I wish I had this guitar for my 1st guitar. Features: I really like the built-in tuner and auto shut down.
Summary: I have 3 guitars & this one is by far my favorite. I'm only 5'1 and small framed & this guitar is a perfect fit for me. The body is thinner than an acoustic & thicker than an electric. The on board tuner is great. This guitar sounds nice plugged in or on it's own. I love it!
Summary: Just bought one of these and so far, so good. Great sound, good value, nicely finished, easy to play, easy to use electronic digital tuner, equalizer, and sounds great when plugged into an amp.
Summary: I purchased this guitar after reading good reviews online. The first delivery was returned because someone had hit the cardboard packaging with what looked like a forklift blade. The guitar was slightly dented on the front face. The supplier sent a replacement by return and the other collected. The second guitar looks and feels classy. It has well finished edges and a smooth surface.I felt the action on the strings needed lowering so took it to a local guitar shop.
Summary: This guitar is small = powerless = needs amp. Quolity VS Priec is good. These guitars are made by some luther in Malaysia who could supply to Ibanez as well. Anyway, I thought APX 700 was better because of its price but its sound quolity is the same as APX700. I think this guitar is a good choice.
Summary: I wish I had had this guitar many years ago. I feel I would have made much more progress as it is a joy to hold and play. The action is just right and makes holding down chords and just playing so much easier. I never really realised how much difference it could make .Yamaha have got this just right and the integrated battery operated tuner is a real boon. Well made with beautiful looks, at just the right price.
