Yamaha FG700S Folk Acoustic Guitar

This guitar has been discontinued and is no longer widely available.

Although the FG700S is the most expensive in the sub-$200 category usually selling for $199.99, it is also the very best acoustic guitar you can get for under $200 sporting features that you usually only see on much more expensive instruments.

In particular I really like the solid sitka spruce top with its non-scalloped X-bracking which helps it strongly project its full bodied tone to a full room - this is not simply a student instrument, it's well suited to live performance just like the more expensive guitars in the Yamaha FG range.

The quality doesn't end with the solid top, it also has an aesthetically pleasing rosewood fingerboard and die-cast tuners as well as an appealing tortoise pickguard.

The bottom line is that the FG700S will remain a guitar that you will want to play over the years even as your skills and tonal tastes develop well beyond the beginner level.
