Rating and Reviews: Yamaha JR1 3/4 Acoustic

The Yamaha JR1 FG-Series guitar is a great way to get started playing. The JR1 is a smaller scale - ideal for younger players.

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Overall: awesome guitar, small but very playable, very nice finish all around, action and intonation were good right out of the box, would be great for a person with small hands or someone just learning how to play, as I am, would buy again, didn't have to use factory support so one star rating

Sound: You don't purchase this guitar for the sound, so this low score isn't meant to be a knock on it. It's bearable, that's about it. Feature: Not really a "feature" laden product. Comes with a gig bag. Ease of Use: High rating here because of the playability. Neck & action is great. 3/4 size makes it easy to play for the kids. BUT, that doesn't mean you get great sounds -- the intonation isn't good. But beginners wouldn't notice, so we'll give it a good rating here... Quality: Guitar is holding together great despite being subjected to kids untender-loving-care. Straight neck but lousy intonation. Value: Paid $90 a few years ago. A fair price. Manufacturer Support: Haven't sought any service on it. The Wow Factor: Kids love it. No adult would feel compelled to own it. Overall: Wish the sound was better, wish the intonation was better, but does the job for a kids starter guitar.
