PLAY AS YOU PAY
Your Yamaha FG700S dreadnought acoustic guitar is the perfect "first guitar" -- and one you'll want to keep throughout your songwriting career. Shaped in a classic dreadnought body, this baby resounds with warm tone, thanks to its solid Sitka spruce top and nato back and sides. The incredibly comfortable nato neck spans 20 frets with a nice scale length of 25.56", and the rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, and stable die-cast tuners all work together in dependable fashion. A familiar feel and a resonant sound are at your side with your FG700S Yamaha acoustic guitar.

Nato Back and Sides and Sitka Spruce Top in Dreadnought Shape

The dreadnought shape has a long and rich history -- it's the classic shape associated with acoustic guitars. Your Yamaha FG700S continues in this tradition, fitting comfortably against your body for an instantly familiar feel. Sitka spruce gives your strumming a mellower sound and resonates with a slower response. Nato back and sides provide your FG700S a nice humble tone and also keeps your guitar lighter in weight compared to heavier woods.

Comfortable Nato Neck and Rosewood Fretboard

A beginner's guitar doesn't necessarily have to play like one. You probably won't be able to shred with this baby, but you'll still be able to play your chords and scales in comfort and ease. This acoustic axe's nato neck is comfortable to hold and has a relaxing feel as your fingers travel across its smooth rosewood fingerboard of 20 frets. The nato neck also provides a nice sustain for your notes and chords.

Rosewood Bridge and Tortoise Pickguard

Your rosewood bridge secures your strings down with confidence and lasting intonation. It also offers a nice contrast in color to your Sitka spruce top and matches nicely with your rosewood fingerboard. An attractive tortoise pickguard below your soundhole adds finesse and more contrast to your FG700S guitar's attractive top. This is a great starter acoustic guitar that not only sounds sweet and plays well, but is also easy on the eyes.

- Solid Sitka spruce top with nato back and sides
- Dreadnought body shape
- Nato neck of 20 frets

"Yamaha has done it again."
Sound: The sound of the guitar is amazing for the price. I've played some other models around this price range (squier, alvarez) and all i can say is that this guitar sounds 10000X times better. Quality: The quality is great (especially the fact it was made in china) it has a nice high gloss which looks fantastic, and the tortoise pick guard compliments it very nicely. Value: Yamaha has done it again. They've created a great entry level guitar for a very nice price. I would have payed an extra $50-$100 if I had to. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had any problems with the guitar since i got it (about 1 year ago). But if I do, im sure they will fix it. Overall: Overall this is a FANTASTIC guitar for the price. It's not a seagull or a Taylor but it still is up there with the greats. If it was stolen, i would replace it with the same model the next day with out a doubt.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Yamaha Guitar #FG700S has a lot of bang for the buck!"
Sound: For the price, I am giving it a 10. It sounds very beautiful, very rich. I put Elixir strings on it and I think that helps some with the sound. I played several other guitars in this price range, but this guitar had the best sound. It doesn't quite sound as good as my friend's Taylor, but close enough! For the difference in price, it sounds better to me! Feature: My guitar came alone without accessories. That was fine. It is quite lovely to look at, with the tortoise shell pickguard against the natural wood. You can see the grain of the wood in the soundhole and the wood isn't as thin as some guitars. I really like the way the neck isn't glossy, but has a satin finish. It looks really great, plus I think it makes it easier to keep your thumb in the right spot. Quality: Extremely well made. I was shocked to see it was made in China. I started checking inside all the guitars under $300 in the shop and all of them were made in China. The guitar seems sturdy, but I just got it, so time will tell. Value: Yeah, this guitar is worth more than the selling price! I think I'll have this guitar for years to come. Manufacturer Support: I really haven't had to deal with anything yet, since I just bought the guitar. But the company I bought the guitar from was great. I had exchanged another guitar, because I didn't like it as well and decided on this Yamaha. I asked them if they would put the Elixir strings on it and they did. The Wow Factor: It's gorgeous! The woods used are very pretty, with the sitka spruce top and the mahogany back and sides. The Yamaha name and logo are pretty too! The rosette is painted on and isn't as pretty as an abalone rosette, but at this price I don't care about that. Overall: I expect to keep this guitar for a very long time! After I'm more accomplished as a guitarist, perhaps I'll consider a pricier guitar. But even so, I'll keep this one around. If it were stolen, I'd replace it with the same model in a heartbeat!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
