Yamaha F345 - The secret to good sound

By Jimmy Bear Pearson

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

Overall impression: The F345 Is extremely well-build, sounds great, and has unusually good intonation. The action and looks are pretty wonderful, too. Playability: The F345 has a good neck profile to grab chords or to fingerstyle-play your favorite melodies. The design is comfortable, the fret ends are nicely finished, and the overall weight of the guitar is comfortable for people of most any size. Sound: The sound of the Yamaha F345 is where the real beauty steps in! The combination of excellent brace voicing and sycamore top gives this instrument a delightful warm sound that is loud enough for small ensembles, and clear enough for recording. The bass side is warm, and the treble is not as thin as most sub-$500 guitars. The intonation really shines on the F345. This is one of the few affordable acoustics I?ve ever purchased that has intonation that doesn?t drive me crazy when I?m trying to make a recording. Value: This guitar is worth far more than it costs! It?s a well-kept secret.

Good Value Guitar

By gd24

from Cambridge, MA

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

I've used this guitar for about a month, and really liked the deep rich sound of it. The more recent Yamahas have impressed me by the quality of sound and workmanship per dollar.

Great, Versatile Instrument

By gtlassiter

from Fayetteville, AR

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

The Yamaha F345 is an excellent instrument. It sounds a little high on the treble end in the beginning, but once the spruce top really opens up and becomes porous, it produces wonderful bass tones. I have used this guitar for many different venues, and have not felt the need to purchase another acoustic. It is great for playing folk tunes, blues, or acoustic rock. I have also played some slide tunes on it. I've not noticed any problems with construction or unusual wear since I have owned this wonderful instrument.

Nice guitar and great price!

By Rick Garrett

from Talladega, Alabama

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

I checked other guitars in this price range, like Epiphone, Takimine, Ibinez, Mitchell and a couple others and they had nothing that came close to the Yamaha 345. The workmanship is very good and the string action is the low and plays like butter. The only knock and it is only a slight knock is that it is a slimmer model which cuts down a little on the volume it puts out. But it still sounds really nice with good tones and again plays easier than anything I tried out. I would recommend the Yamaha 345 to anyone. Very nice guitar!

Outstanding Value

By Tony

from Fort Worth, Texas

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased this guitar to learn on after borrowing my brother's Yamaha FG730S for my first few classes. I had really liked the FG730S action and tone so that was what I was going to look at first. I went to Guitar Center and tried several guitars in the $200 - $300 range including Yamahas and Takamine's and the F345 had as good an action as any of them and was the best sounding. The color and finish are beautiful. The only issue I noticed later was that the strap button was not screwed in straight, not a functional problem but just doesn't look right.

Awesome Instrument

By Lucky

from New Orleans

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

I am a beginning player and I have a Yamaha electric guitar already but I wanted an accoustic guitar. A friend of mine had a Baby Martin, and I went into GC thinking that's what I wanted to (I am a small sized female). The salesman showed me the Yamaha F345 and I didn't like it at first, but he kept bringing me other guitars to compare with it, including the Baby Martin and nothing compared to the Yamaha, as far as my ears were concerned. It just sounded so much crisper and clearer. I bought it at the end of August 2007 and am having no trouble with the action, considering my fingers are really short. I LOVE IT.

Beautiful

By Zach

from Jtown, MD

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar outshines just about every other acoustic I've ever heard. The deep richness is something you actually feel in the tone as you play the lower notes. The treble isn't shrill and mismatched with the bass like many other acousics. In addition to the incredible tonality, the playability and ease of handling make this guitar one of my prized possessions; worth far more than the asking price here.

She wasn't perfect, I fell in love

By JON Tyler

from Baltimore MD

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

She is my first, and currently only, guitar. Bought at guitar center for like $50 used, because it was warped near the lower body of the guitar. This warp actually made a closer action to the fret, making it play closer to an electric style guitar. She's one of a kind, and I'll never let her go.

Amazing Tone

By James Miller

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar, thinking from the previous ratings it would be a great buy,However, this guitar was not what I expected it to be. It was decent I was hoping for a better tone, but overall if this is going to be your first acoustic then I would recommend this guitar.

i love it.

By delia

from hollywood, florida

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

first of all, you haven't really seen it until you've seen it in person. its got beautiful wood, and you can see the lines of it. beautiful finish, and the picture doesnt do the red tortoise shell pickguard justice. it's so pretty that i didn't get a natural guitar and went the extra money for this more attractive, intense look and it was SO worth it. second, the sound is beyond great. i dont know if it's a solid top, but it doesnt matter because it sounds so good as it is. it has a really rich, deep, full sound when i'm strumming, and when i'm picking, the notes ring clear, high and sweet. this was my first guitar, and it's probably the best beginner's guitar out there. it has a surprisingly full sound, and an incredibly beautiful look. yamaha brought the world yet another perfect, inexpensive guitar.

Absolute Winner

By Scott Sayles

from Mountain View CA

Comments about Yamaha F345 Sycamore Top Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar 2 months ago for my first guitar. I also bought an F Series Jr for my daughter as her first guitar. they're both terrific. This guitar, the F345SY sounds deep, warm and inviting. I played several more expensive guitars before purchasing and there was no appreciable improvement in sound to just dollars in additional cost. It's a complete winner!
