Summary: This Yamaha guitar is a great bargain: no, it's not as good as a Martin or Taylor, which cost substantially more. But in the budget price range, this guitar looks good and for the most part sounds great.
Summary: Overall, this was a good buy. It got here quite quickly, almost surprisingly with jut normal shipping. The guitar plays nicely and has good strings on it at the start. The only thing is that there is some cracking of the glossy coat on the backside.
Summary: This is a great entry level guitar. Before I played one of these I always believed you needed to spend at least $300 (preferably $500) to get a decent acoustic. Yamaha has done a great job making a quality instrument available at this price point.
Summary: I'm impressed with the sound but not the design that most accoustic guitars have and same brand yamaha which prices are way lower.I really like it just hope the sound wont change in a few months like other guitars.
Summary: 1) There is no Guitar Case in this purchse. Only bare Guitar is delivered. 2) But Giutar is so marvelous. Listen to the sound this guitar is making. Great. 3) Delivery is very fast with good condition.
Excerpt: I've been playing 40 years as an amateur. I needed an acoustic quick as my other one, a vintage, was being repaired and I had to do some playing. I only had $300 to spare and the FG 700S fit the bill. I think a rating of 7 out of 10 for a $200 guitar is very good.
