one year.. I chose it because it sounded beautiful not plugged in, deep rich sound. But a totally different story when i plugged it in. But just like a girlfriend im willing to give it a chance. If stolen i would definatly buy something else. A martin or a taylor. Shit i had a 4oo dollar ibanaz that sounded better plugged in through a boss eq pedal. But b4 plug in the yamaha had it all over all the other guitars
well i thought it sounded beatiful just as acoustic not plugged in. Thats why i bought it. I wanted a martin or a taylor but i kept coming back to the a3m. But when i plugged it in i was a lil disappointed. I definately have to tweek the equalizers to get the deep crisp sounds i want.
No accesories just hard shell case. I like the on board tuner which when tuning it mutes the guitar. I just didn't hear that great of a difference with the eqs. I guess i have to get to know it better, but i thought at 800 dollars i would be able to plug and play.
Ease of Use
i have had it for a month and i am still trying to get the sound i want. Playability i thought when i got it was going to be excellent, but the strings where a couple centimeters off fret board, im not a rocked scientist but they could of set it up. So when i purchased it i had to put another 50 dollars out to set it up, and still not happy with it. And i am not a hard person to please. There was all this hype about the a series i was sold, but when i got it i thought they could of put a lil bit more into the guitar b4 sending it out.
when i recieved the a3m it had a small scratch on the back, i hope its reliable, haven't had long enough. If used on the road i would imagine it would be getting set up alot. I liked the smaller neck but i also read that the strings were set lower on the fret board i did not see that, even after the set up. It was described as a "workhorse" we'll see. I know 800 isnt 2000 but its also not 400 i expected alot more i guess out of the hyped up guitar.
well i was not aware of warranty i just knew i had 30 days to return it. I didn't want to put it through any more delivery so i had it set up here. And it still needs work. And thats right out of the box.
The Wow Factor
it looks pretty and sounds wonderful b4 you plug it in
