I use this to play and practice, but once a month I get together with a few friends and jam together. It's so easy to play and I plug it right into the amp I use to use with a strat. Technically it's a 3/4 size (which basically means that the fret board is 1/2 inch shorter and the body is slightly (barely noticeably) smaller. In my small collection of guitars; acoustic, electric, acoustic bass, and electric bass, I never owned an electric acoustic before. This is a perfect, all round guitar at the right price.

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.

      Comments about Yamaha FSX700SC Solid Top Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The Yamaha/FSX700SC-Solid-Top-Concert-Cutaway-Acoustic-Electric-Guitar is the best bang for the buck. It really has the sound quality close to a much more expensive Martin or Taylor IMHO. I got the guitar because in my 30 years of playing, I have a small collection of electric guitars and basses, and acoustic guitars and even an acoustic bass, but I never owned an electric acoustic before. What a treat to get that full acoustic sound and power of an electric.

                Comments about Yamaha FSX700SC Solid Top Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                I have gone through a lot of guitars and this guitar is the one I keep coming back to. Here's why:
                1) Quality components and construction. The nut and bridge are not bone, but other than that common shortcut, the other things are there. Tuning machines are fabulous for a guitar in this range. Electronics are adequate. Solid top has a beautiful rich sound and durability and assembly are solid. I've had mine for three years now and it's holding up great.
                2) Nice out of the box setup. I've changed strings many times and haven't had to tweak anything, not even the truss rod. Frets were smooth and nice when I bought it.
                3) Great feel. The 25" scale is only a minor departure from the more common 25.5" but it makes a difference. The guitar feels great. The neck feels great.
                4) The sound is terrific. It's got good lows, twangy highs and sounds really great. Obviously this has a lot to do with your strings and I've tried them all. I've been moving toward thinner strings of late, but 11s are as low as I like to go on this guy. Sounds really good with 12s.
                5) Electronics are good and the onboard tuner is one of my favorite onboard tuners. You don't get a lot of control from the preamp, but you get volume, treble and bass. It does sound very authentic plugged in. Unplugged, you won't know it's not a dreadnought.
                6) As a minor quibble, I noted there's no strap button at the neck. It's a minor quibble. I installed one, but I picked the wrong spot and get some neck tilt, but that's on me.

                  This is a great guitar for the money. I have several expensive guitars, and this one just really outperforms it's pricetag. It really holds it's own and has a place right alongside my ultra expensive guitars.
