It you want a reliable investment, here it is. Sound. Great. A member of our band has a $1,700 Martin and everyone agrees that it sounds as warm and looks fantastic. They did it right with this one! Play 5 or 6 guitars and you will keep coming back to this one. For the sound, price, reliability and ease of playability....go for it!!!
I have owned a couple of Yamaha acoustics, along with a Martin electric-acoustic, but this one came out of the box sounding great!!! Although I am not what you consider an accomplished guitar player, I feel confident in my ability to recognize the sound of a truly great instrument. This sounds comparable to some breedlove, takemime and fender acoustics I tried. Again, great guitar Yamaha!!
I bought the Yamaha FSX700SC about 2 months ago. I was looking for an electric acoustic that I could grow into as a beginner. I was looking specifically for a smaller guitar in the $200 - $300 range and stumbled across this one. I was pleasantly surprised with the full sound of this guitar. Every friend that I have that has played it has loved it, and it sounds amazing plugged in. I practice as much as I can because of how in love I am with this guitar. I also have a friend, who is a more experienced player, who is considering purchasing this guitar or another in this same series because of it's quality for the price. The action on this guitar is slightly high, but something that hasn't seemed to bother me or anyone else who has spent time playing it. Overall, I got really lucky with this purchase, but am so pleased. I would recommend this guitar to anyone, whether a beginner or more experienced player.
So I originally bought a Yamaha FX370SC, but as a NooB I didn't have the knowledge or awareness of solid tops vs. lament and so on. Within my thirty day window I went back and played all levels of guitars from 200 mark to the 1800 mark in cost. I have a lot of experience with sound and to me the FSX700SC could hold its own with all the guitars I played, all brands big and small. This guitar has a nice warm sound and resonates well without the electronics. Feels great in play and I am of the opinion that it is not that much small than the dreadnot style and for me was just a little more comfortable. For the price I feel like I got a much better guitar for the cost. I recommend no matter what you are buying to actually go into the store and try as many guitars as you can because I found differences in sound, feel, and actual color/looks in all the guitars including same model/make comparisons. This guitar though is pretty nice and friends that I have shown it to and allowed to play it thought it cost much more and where surprised at the price for the quality. Awesome guitar.
tHE GUITAR SOUNDS GREAT THE STRINGS ARE TOO HIGH ON THE NECK AND THE SADDLE AT THE BRIDGE IS TOO TALL. THERE IS NO BUTTON ON THE FRONT FOR FITTING A STRAP. I JUST NEVER DID LIKE HAVING TO FIT MY STRAP TO THE HEADSTOCK. IT LOOKS LIKE AN OLD BLUEGRASS PICKER. I WILL TAKE MINE BACK AND PICK OUT ANOTHER.
I think the Yamaha FSX700SC compares favorably with some guitars that cost twice as much. Although it is a small body guitar it has a large sound. It is super easy to play. The action and intonation was perfect right out of the box and there was no reason to have a luthier do a proper set-up like you have to do with most new guitars. This is the second Yamaha I have owned. I am very impressed with the quality of the Yamaha guitars.
I've never been a big Yamaha fan, but simply put, this guitar is nice! I've been looking for a new guitar for the last 6 months. I was searching in the $500 +/- range, and was leaning toward a Seagull Entourage when I found this at Guitar Center for $299. I couldn't believe that Yamaha could offer a solid top guitar of this quality at that price. The fit and finish are beautiful (I bought the sunburst), and the sound is just what I was looking for. Bass and volume are better than you would expect for the small body size, but more importantly, the sound is perfectly balanced throughout. Plugged in, the guitar sounds just like it should, like it's NOT plugged in. The sound through my amp is clear and natural. The action is perfect, and the slightly smaller size makes the instrument comfortable and fun to play. I haven't found another guitar that plays or sounds this good under $500, or a guitar that looks this good at many times the price.
Holds a tune, great sound, nice smaller size. Everything I expected and more.
