Default NGD

I've played too many of these, & finally decided that there isn't a better way to spend $300. I had a 16% off which tilted the 'no brainer' decision. I can't figure out how Yamaha makes such a nice instrument for this price. Aesthetically & acoustically well above it's price point. I bought it as outdoor beater.

The low end Yamahas are very nice guitars! Happy NGD! I bought my FS700 as a beater but ended up really liking it a lot.

Fg830.....I've played a bunch & they're all very good. The QC process for Yamaha has to be stringent.

I just got a new Yamaha.....Stoopid Deel of the Deigh.
Both GC and Musicians (If you have money) Friend have them the last couple of weeks.

I had a new nut put on to widen the strings per forum members recommendation. Cool cutaway nylon with tuner / electronics NZT500 For $229 shipped... it is pretty fun. Then get the HARD tension nylon strings and a luthier nut and setup ($50).

I am still super happy about my $800 (with a HSC) PRS SE T55E cutaway. It sounds so great and plays effortlessly with a flatpick.

ENJOY YOUR NEW GUITAR!
