This is the acoustic electric version of one of the best and most successful Yamaha models in all time. Just like every other electric Yamaha guitar, the brand sells a model with a lot of good features and great electronics. For the price that this jewel is sold at, you get a very good entry-level instrument with a lot of premium features.

High level output for an affordable price is the slogan of the Yamaha FGX700SC Acoustic Electric. The FG series are known for combining great craftsmanship quality and modern technologies in one piece, and this is exactly what the FGX700SC is.

This git has a dreadnaught cutaway body that features solid Sitka spruce top and nato back, sides and neck. Just like the acoustic model, it has rosewood bridge and rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets. The length of the scale of the FGX700SC is 25 9/16″.

The classic FG headstock comes with die cast tuners. The natural high-gloss finish and the chrome hardware look great. The electronics that are included are of a very decent quality that surpasses the price of the model. The System55T comes with one pickup, the famous Piezo three band equalizer, a built in tuner, and an AMF (adjustable midrange frequency) control.

Will all of the quality materials and electronics and using the Yamaha knowledge, squeezing some great sound out of this guitar is no surprise to anyone. The clear, bright highs and rich lows give you the high level instrument experience. Even with some hard playing and jamming, you will rarely hear distortion coming from the instrument in your hands.

With the great full sound and the help of the additional electronics, this guitar can match any music style that comes in your mind. I like versatile six string units at this price range, because that makes them appropriate for seasoned players and beginners at the same time. The FGX700SC keeps its tuning and you will rarely have to reset it.

The Verdict
This guitar will make every beginner happy, but it doesn’t stop there. If you are a semiprofessional, or if playing the guitar is your hobby and you are looking around for an inexpensive new addition with great electronics, you will enjoy this Yamaha masterpiece. Finding a guitar that plays better than this one and costs $300 or less will be a very hard and time consuming task for you. This git is worth its price and I see no reason to ignore it.
