      Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar (H87500)

A compact steel-string with a solid spruce top that's great for fingerpicking.

The FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar takes its design concept from Yamaha's flagship LS models. Choice woods, the finest craftsmanship and a smaller folk style body make the FS series a great alternative to the larger bodied FG. This model has a precise, smooth response and a sweet, forcused tone that works perfectly for recording or fingerpicking.

  • Solid spruce top
    Nato back & sides
    Nato neck with rosewood fingerboard
    25" scale
    Rosewood bridge
    Die-cast tuners
    Hi-gloss finish

  • Not just a great beginner guitar...

    As reviewed by Kathy Sarkes on 11/3/2013

    This is a great little guitar for any level of playing. I bought the Sandburst at my local gc store, looking for the best sounding and playing solid topped guitar in the store for 200 bones or less. I found it in the new yamaha fs700s. Having come from a guild gad-30pce, guild cv-2c and a breedlove masterclass nw classic--yes i went gear crazy, then broke.. I had to sell my gear before a life change and move--but i digress. This guitar for $200 should be worth $500. Taken home, it sounded great, not loud but as loud as a concert/000 style will permit in a solid top only. It actually has a rich, but somewhat boxy tone. Not a bad boxy, it actually works for this guitar. I love the fact it is a short scale. Because of the boxiness, i would say is more midrange focused. Bass is adequate but lacking, despite the deeper than om body. Treble is clear but kind of tinny when strummed hard. As a side note i have done some upgrades to it. I had ordered and installed a colossi saddle made of bone. Also i changed the tuners to grover 18:1 gold keystone tuners, and replaced bridge pins with ebony pins. All this combined with a truss rod adjustment and sanded down saddle to acheive a .008mm clearance at the 7th fret for lowest possible action without sacrificing tone, this guitar can suprisingly project some sound. A very playable and hard to put down guitar. This guitar also loves phosphor bronze 12-54 strings. 80/20 seems to tin out the sound while pb strings round it out and bring out more bass, while keeping mids pronounced and trebles crisp. All in all i think it was a great guitar for the price to begin with. After some diy setup and modding, i have made it that much better. I would not compare it to an "m" or "t" guitar because those are in a higher bracket, but i thinplayed side by side with my taylor gc3 it would be complimented well. For fit and finish, it is not without flaws. The finish on the bodyis decent, not too thick as to i pede the vibrations of the wood. However there is some light nicking or scarring of the satin finish of my neck. I found this after i brought it home. Best 200 i ever spent and after $75 of upgrades i feel it is easily worth 500 if yamaha added these features from the factory.

  • Perfect Yamaha for me

    As reviewed by LINDA KOSKI on 9/27/2013

    Today I went to Guitar Center to trade my Yamaha FG700S for something smaller. They had the FS700S, and as soon as I picked up I suspected that as a smaller person with shorter arms, it would be much more comfortable for me to play. And it was. I have owned several Yamahas in my life, and I bought the FG700 online without trying it out first, which wasn't a good idea. This FS700 is perfect for me. It's very nicely finished (the Sand burst finish),its set up is fine, and I'm gonna be much happier with this smallersize. I recommend it without hesitation. In my experience, you can't go wrong with a Yamaha of any model. Just find the one that fits!

  • Great bargin

    As reviewed by Captive Socks on 12/15/2013

    Don't let the price fool you. This is a great guitar. I have been surprised both by the sound and the play-ability. The sound is warm, might even call it rich sounding. Overall it is pretty balanced and rings out clear and clean. Construction is solid and appears flawless. (Could this really be a $200 guitar?) Additionally, it is maintaining its tuning as well as my Taylor and my custom Martin. Lastly, this "cheap" Yamaha is pretty. The nato looks a lot like it's cousin mahogany. Just some advice if you want an instrument that will make you want to write a review like this: Go to the Guitar Center and LISTEN. People always will tell you to do that, but with this Yamaha the variations in the individual instruments was huge. I listened to 4 of them. The one I have is the only one I would have considered bringing home with me. Taste varies by user. Bring home the FS700S that suits you.
