    Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

    Fun guitar to play. Being a smaller female this guitar fits me perfectly. Only problem I had was when I opened the box the guitar had a small chip/crack in the back. We were able to kind of fix it with some glue. Everything is sealed just has a small glue spot of the back. Not a huge deal to me.

      Great sound - the one we had delivered sounded as good as the one in the store. Shared it to several friends who have played guitar for several years and they were all impressed with the sound. Very nicely made, excellent finish and feel - no visible defects.

          I am an avid user on a daily basis. I jam with my friends and we learn new things off of each other. This guitar has a good feel and look. I can't say nothing bad about it really.

          Amazed, I'll tell you why.

          By Duck

          from Farmington Hills, MI

          About Me Experienced

          Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          Here it is all in a nutshell...

          Price - Outstandingly Affordable for it's quality.
          Strings - Use any coated or non -coated 80/20 .12 gauge.
          Materials - Easily a budget campfire or pick up guitar.

          I use this product like any guitar I pick up. Personally I love the scale length from nut to bridge.
          The stock strings make it sound - brittle, empty, and bright. However when you put on any 80/20 .12 string, whether it be D'Addario, Elixer, Ernie Ball, Martin, you name it, the sound the guitar puts forth improves significantly.
          The guitar seems very light. The smaller Folk Concert body shape is preferable for me personally. I am 5'10, average body weight (give or take 5-10lbs) and my hands are smaller then your average hand, including finger length. All that in mind, it's easy and comfortable to play. I consider it a guitar that I would pick up at anytime to experiment with, any playing style. I really can't find anything that isn't so great about it other then the black binding on the neck, I prefer cream, although it is growing on me. I also would prefer a cream binding on the headstock. I actually prefer the laminate back and sides of nato because of this reason - I have no problem with sitting in front of a fire, playing without worry or concern about damaging it. I only say that because of it's price and materials. Remember that wood is fuel for fire. I claim what is my opinion to be my opinion.

          Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          I was shopping for a blues box style guitar today and after looking around at several stores and options, including resonators, I picked this Yamaha up on a whim and tried it out. Fit and finish are great, especially considering the price tag. This guitar's concert body style really helps it to sound bluesy. It has a great balance to it's sound. Great bass for blues rhythym, sweet mids and highs that can stand out for leads and slide. Another reviewer said the strings sounded twangy and I like that aspect as I want a twangy old blues sound. I bought this model because it sounds great, but the action was also just slightly high so I won't need to adjust it for slide. The guitar projects really well; it's loud and well defined. The bracing that I can see looks quite well done for a guitar in ths price range. I purchased a sand burst model. It looks really nice, darker than the picture of sand burst online. I bought an end pin for the neck and also got a decent strap for it as my model came with a 20 dollar gift card. I was staying within a budget for a "beater" blues box that I can learn slide on and do alternate tunings with. I have a Martin DRS-1 and a Martin 12 string and this little guitar will be my "fun" experimental blues guitar. It sounds great, is fun and comfortable to play and has a satin finish on the neck for those of you that might like that. I do. 5 stars for what it is in it's price range. It's actually better than many more expensive guitars I've played. I really love this cheap new addition to the stable. If you're looking for a blues acoustic, play this one before you walk out with one of those popular parlor boxes that are all the rage now. I think you get much more value for your money with this guitar's construction, playability and tone.

          Great Guitar

          Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          I got this Yamaha FS700S after doing some research, the price is great for a solid top and the sound is great, it is not that much smaller than an FG700S but it does make a difference in how easy it is to play this guitar. I ordered it online because the local GC did not have the Natural finish one in stock, the action is little high from the factory (7/64's) but I lowered it down to 5/64's and it very fast, no buzz, great guitar. I recommend changing the strings to D'Addario EJ16's, for a great upgrade in the tone, the factory strings have a little "twang" to them so I changed them and it sounds great! Very good guitar, hardware is nice, and for the price you can't get a better guitar, this should probably be priced a little higher. Very nice guitar, with great tone and sound, totally recommended.

          Good starter guitar of for someone with small to medium hands

          By matthew

          from Cincinnati OH

          Comments about Yamaha FS700S Solid Top Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          Overall a great little guitar. I am very happy with it. For $179 it was well worth it. Here are my thoughts: Pro's: Good fit and finish. Good sound. Good strings from factory. Good size for small to medium sized hands. Stays tuned for weeks. Nice light weight. Con's: A little small for my average-sized hands, hard to do chords up near headstock (playing individual notes is quite easy, though). Being an average sized person, getting the next size up may have allowed easier chord access (try the FG700s too if this one is too small for you). Again, a great guitar for the right-sized person.
