My first guitar. I bought it in the packaged deal. I fell in love as soon as I touched it. I am just learning to play and I cant put it down. It stays in tune as I only had to do this once and I have had it for 2 months now..I love the tone and feel of the neck...You experienced players pick one up and see if you dont agree. ITS GREAT.

In retrospect, I suppose should've spent a little more money on a guitar, but starting out at 53 years of age," I was concerned that I might not be able to learn how to play so I tried to buy the least expensive ""good"" guitar I could find. If it had not spontaneously began to disassemble itself before its second birthday", things would be sunshine and roses today and the ratings would be much higher from me.

It does have a lovely tone still. I'm shopping for something else now and I'm leaning towards the Mitchell DM100SCE or the Fender SD140SCE. Something with a solid spruce top and built-in active electronics for less.
I purchased this in the GigMaker bundle as my first guitar. The tone and action were fine. It was fine to learn how to play the guitar with it.
After about eighteen months, the bridge began delaminating from the top at the back corners and the internal X-Brace was separating on the low-E side from the underside of the top.

I used cyanoacrylate to rebond the bridge to the top. I used aliphatic resin glue to rebond the X-Brace to the top. The top was still bowed behind the bridge and bellied between the sound hole and the bridge. I've added a custom-made clamp to absolutely tie the bridge to the top and the bridge plate. It's tolerable, but it still screws up the action.

It's Good

By Jay

from Worcester, MA

The Yamaha is really good for beginners. For the cost of the guitar, the sound is great and the action is good as well. The only thing about it, however, is that there are a few problems. One thing is that the strings tend to vibrate or ring when you reach a certain fret or if you drop tuning. Another is that the strings are close together, so finger-picking is also harder to do. Despite those two problems that always bother me, the Yamaha F325 is a good guitar for beginners, but I suggest you buy a new one if you want to get better.

The Best for the Price and More

By That Studio guy

from Iowa

I purchased this model about 8 years ago from a Guitar shop used and perfectly set up. I just wanted something to write music with. This guitar just gets better with age. The sound is full and the tone is excellent. Mine has exposed gear tuners and stays in tune even with big bends. I have a natural finish which has aged gracefully but the clear coat is really thin and I am able to scar the top with my fingernail running with the grain of the wood. The top resonates well and people cannot believe that its a low budget guitar just by the sound alone. I have a friend that has the exact same guitar and his isn't as good as mine, but I did buy mine professionally set up so you be the judge. I would recommend that you play one first.

My Favorite Guitar

By Zack Dryer

from Fort Drum, New York

I bought this guitar as my first guitar to see if I would even like playing guitar at all. I used it for a year while deployed to Afghanistan and it held up beautifuly. I have since purchased a Martin custom which I love, but I still play my yamaha almost everyday. Alot can be said about expensive guitars, about there tone, craftsmanship, and style, but all of those things can be said about this one too. This is a great guitar for beginers, due to its smooth fretboard and low action, but its also a great travel guitar for anyone who doesnt want to travel with a high end Martin or Taylor.

Fantastic Guitar!!!!!

By Coldsteel142

from Ozark, AR

The Yamaha F325 is GREAT! I have played for 15 years and currently own a Takamine and an Epiphone. I always come back to the Yamaha - the tone of this guitar is amazing! My friend has a Taylor, and he is jealous of the sound of my Yamaha F325. The playability is great - no problems with buzzing. It holds up to anything you can throw at it. The guitar holds tune well; the tuning heads are of good quality. The action is fast and as I said earlier - the tone is just unbelievable! This guitar is the only acoustic you'll ever need. I've "upgraded" at least 4 times with much more expensive guitars - I keep coming back to this guitar because it works. Don't judge this guitar by the price... play it and you'll fall in love with it - for life!!
