    Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar is beautiful to look at and very well made. For under $300, is perfect. The solid spruce top has a beautiful, tight and straight grain and a fine blue rich color. The sides and back look beautiful as well with a blue-black termination. It was set up perfectly right out of the box - only needing to be tuned G and B.
    It is worth much more than the asking price. I can't get over how good it sounds. They put a lot of thought into the design. I find this guitar very easy play. The quality of this guitar is excellent.

        Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

        This guitar is an awesome deal for the price. It sounds great with a bright full sound. If you are an average guitar player and looking for something that sounds good but won't cost too much, this is the guitar for you. It's definitely suitable for any amateur guitar player.

        WOW!

        Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

        At 52, I thought I was an old dog that couldn't learn any newe tricks. Well, that is way away from the truth. I've been toying around with the idea of learning an instrument, and with the help of the internet, I'm on my way. I spent many hours trying out some instruments looking for something affordable, that would carry me from a beginner to an intermediate player, and the FG was my choice. The sound was as rich as some of the $6-800.00 instruments, holds its tune, and the Ocean Blue Burst color makes it like a piece of art to boot. If you're searching for an entry level price, and an "advanced" sound, then this is it.

        This one will surprise you...

        By Dan Wagner

        Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

        Not so long ago, when looking to purchase an acoustic guitar that was instrument quality rather than a toy for under $300 was little more than a punch line to a very bad joke. Times have changed a bit. Now a playable acoustic can be had in that range... But the FG series raised the bar on affordable, playable guitars in this price range. The sustain is near piano in proportion, but volume is not overly sacrificed in the inevitable trade off. The lows remain rich and vibrant, but do not overwhelm mid and high frequencies. Very well balanced. Yes, you can fingerpick without muddiness at the same time as a country bass line will deliver in thick, full force. THAT is impressive in an $800 guitar. Jaw dropping in a sub $300. Yamaha was not goofing off when they designed their bracing. The fittings are well done, no excess glue, gaps or shoddy workmanship, frets very well fit and polished. Thin finish, but the upside is the top should open up faster and sound better. The action is low- great for all you fancy fingerwork fans, but a heavy, aggressive bluegrass strummer may find it necessary to raise the action or risk buzzing. For the average player however, you will find it nothing short of perfection. Don't let the student model prices cause you doubt. This is a very real instrument, literally usable as a main with no reservation. Jaded as I am, it is tough to get praise out of me, but Yamaha certainly earned it with this one.

        Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

        I has been playing a Yamaha electric and decided to try one one their acoustic guitars. After doing alot of research and trying several different models I settled on this one. the FG720S has a rich deep sound and marvelous sustain. I found the strings a bit stiff but that's something I'm sure to get used to. One other thing, the finish is a bit delicate so you want to be careful not to bump it. Great price, value. Playabillity excellent.

        Way more than a beater!

        Comments about Yamaha FG720S Acoustic Guitar:

        I was looking for a guitar to take to festivals and jams, etc. I was prepared to sacrifice a lot of performance and tone to get something that was cheap and that I would not worry about too much. To get to the point--this guitar is far beyond my expectations. Big sound, nice bass, not boxy sounding, some power in the trebles, and it actually has some tone (not a Martin by any means, but it might make folks do a double take...what guitar are you pickin?). I don't know much about these cheaper Yamahas, but if this is an example of what they do, I am impressed. This is good enough to be your only guitar. I am serious about that.
