Overall Rating:
A great acoustic guitar overall. It's easy to play and it has an awsome acoustic sound. The only serious drawback is the active pickup that sounds too bright.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $800.00
Where Obtained: Timbres Instrumentos Musicais
Features:
- Made: Japan.
- Materials: spruce body and top, rosewood fretboard.
- Frets: 22 jumbo frets.
- Controls: features an active preamp with EQ, volume and pickup balance controls.
- Pickups: two piezo pickups (bridge/internal).
- Body: thin, with a cutaway and natural finish.
For a professional level guitar, it's missing a XLR balanced output.
Playability:
Very low action for an acoustic. Combined with jumbo frets, it's very easy to play this guitar. It's almost as easy to play as my Ibanez JEM.
Sound Quality:
Unplugged, this guitar sounds excellent: a warm, nice acoustic sound. When you plug it, it sounds too bright and you have to roll back the treble controls of your amp. I wouldn't rely on the pickups of this thing; I prefer to use a microphone for live playing or recording.
Durability:
It's one of the top Yamaha acoustic models, so it's built to last. It's reliable enough for live playing.
