I love this guitar and its versatility, toughness, tone and playability. The tone is wonderfull!!! I play many styles and this guitar is particularily great for writing songs with, as well as live in smallish acoustic spaces. I got it used, and that made it an even better value! The only downfall is that a 9v battery doesn't fit the way it should into the slot, but that is how it has been since I got it (used).
The tonewoods are excellent. They look beautiful and sound beautiful. TONE! This guitar puts up with abuse! I use it for many styles and lots of hard strumming. I am slightly dissapointed that my electronics don't work because the 9volt batter doesn't fit quite right in the slot, but I got the guitar used and I don't use it amped anyways, so it isn't a big deal to me.
The quality is wonderful. I have played much more costly guitars that others own, and am perfectly happy with this one. It sounds and feels just as good, if not a little heavier than, say, a Martin, but I actually like that, being primarily a bass player.
Yamaha makes great instruments for the price. This guitar is no exception! The sound is crystal clear classic steel-string acoustic sound you would expect from a top of the line spruce and mahogany guitar. (minus several hundred dollars off the top!) TONE! TONE! TONE! for the price!

The biggest problem with this guitar is its tuners. They slip and cannot keep tune. I tightened the screws at the ends of the stems very tight, but they still slip. Also, the action on the guitar is rather high. I find the neck to be too narrow for my fingers. I would have preferred that a strap button be located at the base of the neck. On the plus side, the sound is decent. The electronics are good, and the built-in tuner is handy, but not as precise as a Snark.

    Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    If you want an all-around guitar, that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, this is it! I have a Martin 000-15M and a Martin HD28-V, and they are awesome guitars. Each have a niche. But by far the Yamaha is the most versatile, and has great tone, sustain, and play-ability. It's a guitar that you can take with you, keep in the living room, the dog can tip it over, you can stumble over it and the dog, you can play it when you are mad, or just overly enthusiastic, you may experiment with different ways to play, nothing like you would ever do with that high dollar guitar. This guitar has taken a lickin' and it just keeps tickin'! I am looking forward to a lot of years with this guitar. And it seems to be improving with age and play.

          Comments about Yamaha FGX700SC Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This guitar sounds great and looks nice. The top of the guitar neck feels kind of a little bit grainy. It needs to be sanded down a little more around the neck to make it smoother, beside that everything else is good.

            This is a great guitar, and it sounds great with some fatter strings on it, but the only problem I have with it is the neck, but other than that, this guitar is one of the most well constructed and best sounding guitars I own.

                    Bought this guitar just to get back in the swing after a few years off from playing regularly while the kids were growing up. I've had some pretty nice guitars in the past, but this one can't be beat for the price. Lush sound, nice electronics, satin neck for smooth transitions up and down the neck. A well thought out and executed instrument. Guitar Center gets $16 to install a strap button at the base of the neck...well worth the price.
