"The search is over!"
Overall: I've been playing for over 10 years and I've owned several different brands of acoustic guitars. I have focused my ability to playing rhythm, primarily because most of my guitar playing has been leading worship. My last guitar was a special edition Martin dreadnought. I loved that guitar for its beautiful sound. But I seemed to have to adjust the action an awful lot. I went through some tough times financially due to illness and I pawned my wonderful guitar, never to be able to reclaim it. I know someone else is being blessed with it. So now came the new search. Boy are there a lot of guitars being made out there that sound like something out of a toy store. I have been playing, and reading about, and you tubing just about everything for the last six months and 99% of everyone on you tube believes the guitar they are playing is just so wonderful. Well who wants to admit the guitar they just spent over 2000 dollars on doesn't sound as good, or even come close to a beautiful, phenomenal, craftsman made Yamaha rosewood/ spruce top guitar, like this one I just got from zzounds! Perfect right out of the box! Best sounding playing guitar I've ever owned! I'm 63 years young and Yamaha has been making great guitars ever since I was a kid. The A5R is a total win!!! What took me so long?

"I did a lot of research...."
Overall: I read all the reviews of this guitar. Every 5 star review you see is accurate. This is superbly built instrument, easily a fine as my Taylor 324. Plugged it in to my Marshall AD50 and it sounds great. In fact, better by far than my Taylor. Unplugged, the sustain and resonance are outstanding. Neck and fretboard are wonderful. Seriously, I am a longtime player and have owned probably 100 or more acoustic electrics and acoustics. I have already bonded with this after a few hours of play time. There is a reason that it is so hard to find these. When you see one available, just buy it. Thanks for having one zZounds. All the other online stores are out of stock.

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. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. 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.
