Best in class for the money
Tomasz Golba 07.06.2019
Probably the cheapest guitar you can get to have "the" tone. Solid top makes a world of a difference. It really does sound a lot better because of it, no matter if you believe in tonewoods or not.

Guitar was shipped high relatively high string action, no fault of Thomann though as Yamaha always sets up their acoustic a little higher out of the box.

My piece went through a fret polish and complete setup to lower the action, I play mostly fingerstyle so I really needed that. I had a luthier install a piezo/internal mic Fishman system and this is likely to be my primary acoustic for years to come.

If you are willing to spend a little more than the absolute cheapest acoustic, you will be glad you did in this case.

Great Budget Acoustic
Anonymous 12.06.2016
Being poor all my life, I've owned a lot of budget acoustic guitars, but this one is the best by miles. It is very well made e.g. the fretwork is immaculate, and it plays great right out the box without having to do any setup whatsoever. It stays in tune extremely well and the sound is very nice for what you pay.

Impressive value for money
fingerthumpin 08.06.2020
Punches well above its weight in build quality, playability and tone.

It holds tune exceptionally well, it has nice sustain and volume, and it's just a joy to play. Ideal for beginners, but it won't disappoint more seasoned players looking for a budget option.

It seems Yamaha take their budget guitars as seriously as their premium instruments. They haven't cut any corners, they've simply used cheaper materials in the construction to keep the costs down.

Very happy with my purchase.

amazing sound, best guitar for the price
vampirion78 07.08.2022
i was a bit sceptical how good a guitar can be at that price range but i was pleasantly suprised, it sounds very clear and chimy but still a bit warm, i would say its focused on the mids, the finish is smooth ans silky, no complaints on the tuning keys either, only thing i should mention its the absense of a cutaway and the fact that the action is a bit high for my liking, but dont get discouraged because the pros are surely more than the cons on that amazing sounding instrument, outstanding VFM!
