Summary: I use this as a travel guitar while I'm out on road trips, and it always amazes me how nice it sounds for a "cheap" guitar. m3ewaning, it doesn't sounds cheap at all, once I put new strings on it and gave it a bone saddle.
Pros: Fun To Play, Good Feel, Rich Sound, Stays In Tune, Volume
Summary: Another well built Yamaha product. Real nice balance of tone, strong in the mid-range, nice depth without the roar of a dreadnought.Really sweet sounding with good volume. The construction is really exceptional for a production guitar priced under $1500.00. The fit and finish looks great.

Pros: Consistent, Fun To Play, Good Feel, Price, Rich Sound, Stays In Tune

Pros: Fun To Play, Good Feel, Rich Sound, Stays In Tune
Summary: I am a 60 something who hadn't played in a lot of years. I have small hands with some arthritic changes, so started playing again using a small Yamaha FG JR. That went so well that I moved up to the FS 700 small body.
Pros: Consistent, Fun To Play, Rich Sound, Stays In Tune
