Great guitar!, August 14, 2009

This is one great guitar!

As a beginner, I cannot claim to know much about guitars, but I did do my research. Yamaha make great musical instruments and this guitar is recommended as a great beginner guitar by several places, including About. The package has everything you need to get started.

THE GOOD:
The guitar – One great instrument. The build feels solid and not at all cheap. The strings are close the the fret board which is great. The tuners are very smooth and feel good. The guitar also has 3 pickups and 5 positions which allow you to change up the sound of he guitar from rock to jazz. Basically, this is a really good guitar. And it has two nobs for volume and tone.
The Amplifier – This is a good beginner amplifier. It is small and has 15 watts. It has two channels: Clean and Dirty. Plenty nobs for us beginners to play with: gain, dirty volume, clean volume, treble, middle, bass. Also has a quarter inch headphone jack. Despite what majority might think, 15 watts is enough for just about anything you’ll be doing. The 15 watts allows you to turn up the gain all the way up and keep the volume down and still have it sound good.
The electric tuner – a nice little add-on for beginners.
The DVD – great place as any to start. Goes over the basics and teaches several chords.
Other – comes with extra strings :)

THE BAD:
The guitar – none at all.
The Amp – the only bad thing with it (for what it is), is that the headphones jack is a 1/4 inch jack so most of us with 3.5mm standard headphone will either need to get new headphones or adapter to use it. But it is no big deal in my opinion.
The Guitar Cable – it is one cheap cable. Mine broke after 4 days. I also noticed that in the dvd that was provided, the instructor didn’t use the cable that was provided but a monster cable, which I found to be funny. You can get a monster cable for pretty cheap here on Amazon, so again, nothing too serious. Order one when you order the guitar so you don’t have to wait like I do.
The Guitar Strap – again pretty cheap. It is like one of those run of the mill nylon straps that you see. I am going to invest in a better one but this one will do for most. On a side note, and this is with all guitars. Invest in peg locks. They will prevent the strap from coming off the pegs on the guitar. When putting on my guitar the strap slipped off the peg, but luckily I was holding the guitar very firmly. Again, this is true for all guitars and not just this one.

Bottom line: Great guitar, great package, great buy. I am happy with it.

Great starter for beginner’s, The 15 watt amp does a good job, The DVD is very informative. The only drawback is the cord, It is cheap and broke on me the second day, Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on a better quality cord. The guitar it self is top notch, Yamaha has maintained there craftsmanship with this guitar. All in all a great price for a starter.

I’m glad I paid $100 less than what it is now, but if you look up the guitar you will find out that it sells for that much alone.

My son loves it. The guitar is nice, the amp is nice, the patch cords a little iffy, but they’re easily replaced. Just a beautiful, great sounding guitar. Anyone into guitar would love to fool around with one of these.
