  • A Matter of Taste

    As reviewed by richard milewski on 11/3/2013

    There is quite a selection of acoustic-electrics out there. I shopped in the $300 range (my budget) for as many similar guitars as I could find. I made my list and headed for Guitar Center. After comparing several, I decided it was a toss up between the Yamaha and the Fender T-Bucket. The deciding factor was the unplugged sound. The Yamaha was a bit mellower whereas the Fender had a decidedly bright sound. I also liked the satin finished neck on the Yamaha as opposed to the gloss finished neck of the fender. I only rated this guitar 4 stars because it lacked a strap button at the base of the neck. The fender had one.

  • Comparable to Taylor 100 series

    As reviewed by Robin S on 10/7/2011

    If there were only one guitar I could grab if the house was on fire it would be my FGX700SC. It has a very bright sound like the Taylor 100 series but with better sounding electronics.The finish is good but not perfect. A little more clear coat in the cracks than an expensive guitar would have but what do you expect for a cheap one. The tuner is dead on with my Snark and allows fast alternate tuning without a head stock tuner. The set-up was great right out of the box with a brighter sound than a FGX730SC. Excellent playability with very little fret buzz. I am missing fewer notes with less effort. I detuned 4 steps to try it out as a barritone and it has excellent tone and playability. Played acoustically it has great tone but amplified is where the 3 band equalizer really shines. The only down side is the frets are a little high when sliding on the strings but that is going to get corrected real soon with a fresh set-up. This will allow any beginner to play a great sounding instrument. I still love a Fender, Martin, or a Taylor but this is a great buy if you are on a tight budget. This is going to become my travel guitar because of it's size and weight. The body is a little larger than a standard dreadnaught so standard dread cases didn't fit. I had to use a gig bag for the case. This is an excellent value. You could buy one for each tuning at the price.

  • Great buy for a great price!

    As reviewed by Danny Minkler on 7/30/2012

    This guitar has an amazing bright sound. Right out of the box it sounded lovely. The tuner is very nice and accurate, the electronics are very nice. I have played many acoustics and this one is one of my favorites. It's a great guitar all in all!
