If there were only one guitar I could grab if the house was on fire it would be my FGX700SC. It has a very bright sound like the Taylor 100 series but with better sounding electronics.The finish is good but not perfect. A little more clear coat in the cracks than an expensive guitar would have but what do you expect for a cheap one. The tuner is dead on with my Snark and allows fast alternate tuning without a head stock tuner. The set-up was great right out of the box with a brighter sound than a FGX730SC. Excellent playability with very little fret buzz. I am missing fewer notes with less effort. I detuned 4 steps to try it out as a barritone and it has excellent tone and playability. Played acoustically it has great tone but amplified is where the 3 band equalizer really shines. The only down side is the frets are a little high when sliding on the strings but that is going to get corrected real soon with a fresh set-up. This will allow any beginner to play a great sounding instrument. I still love a Fender, Martin, or a Taylor but this is a great buy if you are on a tight budget. This is going to become my travel guitar because of it's size and weight. The body is a little larger than a standard dreadnaught so standard dread cases didn't fit. I had to use a gig bag for the case. This is an excellent value. You could buy one for each tuning at 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.

                    I just purchased this guitar and am very happy with it! The action on the strings is crazy and it sounds beautiful! I plugged it into a Marshal amp and made all the settings flat and was surprised at how clean and clear the sound was. Great guitar, must buy if looking for one under $500!
