zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. " Yamaha AC1M Acoustic-Electric Guitar (with Case), Really good deal for the money."
Overall: I Ordered my guitar, with case on Monday, 30 April, got the approval for the 4 month payment on Tuesday, the guitar shipped and was charged to my card for the first payment on Wednesday, 1 April, 2015 and just received the instrument about 2 hours ago, 4/2/2015 -- so I have no complaints with the delivery. Cosmetically, the instrument I received was pretty much perfect, so I have no complaints on that score. As far as the instrument goes, I am not all that happy with the tone of the strings supplied with the instrument, but this will be easy to correct with a set of Martin Marquis acoustic guitar strings, which tend to have a mellower tone. This instrument has many things going for it: 1. It has a fairly narrow neck making it easy to wrap one's thumb around the neck to hold the 6th string. 2. It is a bit on the small size for a dreadnought but mot so much smaller where the bass strings sound out of balance. It projects a little too bright for my musical tastes, but is still sounds really good overall. 3. The preamp uses two AA batteries and having only played the instrument for a couple of hours, I can not speak to the battery life, but I would estimate that they will last quite awhile with any good quality alkaline battery. 4. The instrument has a built in tuner that agrees with my high end tuner within +/- 1/2 Hz. 5. Good range of adjustment on the bass, mid and high tone controls, along with the volume control and a midrange presence control. 6. The output jack is coaxial in the rear strap post, which may or may not be a good thing, but with a good quality strap should make it less probable to become accidentally disconnected while playing amplified. 7. The case has just the right amount of hold around the body, which leads me to believe that the guitar is very well protected. About the only thing I would suggest, if you intend to fly with the instrument is to have someone install a TSA approved hasp, with a TSA approved padlock to make it practical for TSA inspection through airport security. 8. The action is low and easy, with light gage strings. If you go to medium gage strings, you may get some string buzz. However they do supply a truss rod adjustment wrench and I believe it will be a simple matter to adjust the neck to accommodate whatever gage strings you like. I noticed in one of the reviews that the reviewer complained that the 6th string had a tendency to slide off of the end of the fret. I have encountered this on most of the narrower necked instruments that I own and the solution here is to put some extra time in on the instrument so as to not over control the string by trying to play the instrument like one's wider-necked instruments. It takes awhile to get used to any instrument as no two guitars play the same. One needs to develop the muscle memory for any new instrument, but it is doable and, after a time, you will automatically play each instrument correctly as long as you do one thing. Practice regularly. All in all, I have paid a lot more money for instruments that really do not sound any better than this instrument. I would give this a "go for it" for the serious amateur or semi-pro. I would have absolutely no qualms in using this on stage with a bit more practice as the action is low and quick and is very easy to over-control this instrument, while reaping the negative benefits of doing so.
Style of Music: Traditional Irish, Scottish, English and American folk and gospel. Rock, Jazz and blues.
