Yamaha FG700S Acoustic Guitar Review
This is a guitar that looks great, has the strumming action that grabs the attention of the new guitar player and also provides an instrument that is high quality for long-lasting play. A solid instrument that is well worth the price. The sound has real balance giving both low and high tones with a depth of sound one would only expect from more expensive guitars. The factory strings on it will last and a beginner will find that picking up the Yamaha FG700S is easy due to its playability.
Not much in the way of negatives regarding this acoustic guitar but if you listen carefully the action is a little high when you play the higher frets. This issue is easy to overcome if you have your guitar adjusted. If the player has a small body frame, the body of this model can be a little oversized and difficult to hold.
The Yamaha FG700S acoustic guitar is a first-rate guitar that is known for sound quality, and craftsmanship. Makes a wonderful first guitar for someone interested in learning how to play. This guitar is an investment, as the sound will only improve with age.
