Wonderful sounding guitar for the price

Stoob, Yamaha
12 June 2014
  • Summary: I was asked to put new strings, clean, and tune this guitar up for my neighbor. The strings were rusty and it needed a lot of cleaning. When I finished with it, I wanted to tell him that it was junk and should sell it to me. That would have been a lie, it sounded great with good resonance and sustain. I play Guild guitars mainly, and this one would fit in that circle.
  • Pros: Fun To Play, Rich Sound

This it Good, Real Good

Ronoman, Yamaha

  • Summary: I have an older Epiphone acoustic from 1971 that developed a neck block problem. So, thought about getting something new to play with. After many hours of research about lower priced acoustics, there is an overwhelming positive response to the Yamaha FG series guitars. I originally purchased an FG700S, but after a few days wasn't sure that was what I really wanted. So I returned it.
  • Pros: Consistent, Fun To Play, Good Feel, Rich Sound, Stays In Tune

A good guitar

mikeance, Yamaha

  • Summary: I was afraid I would become a sissy trying out & playing only the most expensive guitars (costing upwards in the $thousands) at the local guitar store. Expensive guitars tend to be easier to play-- generally,you don't have to press down on the strings as hard, so I wanted to try a great less expensive guitar that would give me more of a workout, but would still sound fantastic, and I found that with the fg730s.

Works for me

RobMcD, Yamaha
15 December 2013
  • Summary: This is my first and only guitar, so I don't have any expert commentary about it. I have had it less than a month. I selected the FG730s due to the reviews and that it is consistently rated in the top 5 beginner guitars rankings. I'm happy with it, so far. Looking forward to learning how to play it.

Fantastic starter and headroom to grow

MacG, Yamaha
21 February 2013
  • Summary: Fantastic look and feel - the finish on the guitar is smooth, bright, and colorful. I especially like the vintage cherry sunburst design - very innovative versus the standard look. High-quality components make for a sturdy guitar that is easy to tune and comfortable to play. I purchased a sturdy TKL fur-lined case with it to protect it; much better than the soft cases that come in box sets by Yamaha.
