"Best guitar for money in existence.. or runner up"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Originally bought a Martin , but returned it after learning sides and back are made of PLASTIC. Sad. Exchanged it for this Yamaha. Was $100 LESS, sounds better, looks better, more robust design, all wood, GORGEOUS full bodied sound, great pick up and hey, it even came with a case! You cannot go wrong with this guitar. It is a HIGH QUALITY instrument and you can sense that the moment you pick it up. Bravo, Yamaha. Made in China.. like everything these days

I've had a few lower end guitars from Yamaha, Ibanez, and Takamine. I've finally been able to play enough to justify a more expensive instrument. I set a budget of $1500 and went out to the high end room at GC and started seeing which ones I liked. The Taylors and Martins were pretty nice but seemed to either lack low-end boom or be made of laminate - serious turn off for me. I loved the sounds of the Breedloves and Gibsons but they weren't going to come in under 1500. The A1M blew me away...plays easier then my daughter's Gibson Songwriter and I think it actually sounds better to me also. Played low out of the box. No setup or even string change to make it play well. It's a dreadnought body so it will fill up your arms. If you don't like a big guitar this one probably isn't for you, but they do have a concert size that sounded pretty good also...just didn't have that boom on the low end. Best $600 I could think of spending on a guitar.

"Best Playability and Tone for $500 in the store"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Every so often I have to at least pretend I need a new Guitar. While pretending last month, I decided on a Yamaha TransAcoustic, and ordered a red one in Buffalo NY. Since I currently own Taylor, DN-3, and 214 CE, Godin, 5th ave Kingpin and A6Ultra, TaK EF381SC 12 String, and Current Favorite Epiphone Masterbuilt 500MCE, I had a great group to base a comparison with. The Yamaha's built in Chorus and Reverb quickly became a non factor, and the Tone and Feel of the TransAcoustic, made me want to return the Guitar, which I did after about 4 weeks. I went back in the Acoustic room for 2 hours, and surprise, came back out with the Yamaha A1M. Reason for this choice was based on 75% Playability and feel. It was pretty much the only guitar in the Less expensive Area, other than Epiphone 500mce that had the correct set-up and "Feel" of a more expensive Taylor or Martin. I have done Open Mic and this guitar is close to the more expensive guitars I have in plugged in tone and equal in Playability. Great value!
