Very good value for the money
07.08.2016
I got this guitar to use with my band, also home recoring. I am not professional however I think I needed a certain quality. I think the guitar offers good quality, sound and features for the money. I do not see any downside in this guitar. Nevertheless there might be things to mention which is not issue. Tone pot feels looser than the volume, but tone pot is different because it has push/pull function, apparently different brand. The string gauge is not written I am not sure 8 or 9 but I can measure. The guitar has a good sound for rock and blues, for metal I say it depends on the person and the setup. Sound is very versatile, you can catch a classic single coil from the known brand, at the middle position with while the tone pot os pulled up. Hardware is very good. saddle and the bridge material is graphite and I love them. I don't need a setup, action is already low, intonation is very good, just tune and play. If it was stolen I would buy it again. The color is like, I love it,

Fantastic guitar
Paullie, 17.09.2019
I've been amazed to see the quality components that this guitar offers for the price ! Awesome sounding Seymour Duncan pickups that are versatile, quality bridge, nut and tuners ! But these are just specs ! Once I saw that guitar and checked every centimeter of it, I've been blown away by the build quality and the beauty of this guitar !

I've played guitars which worth thousands of dollars. Sure they were nice, but with this Yamaha I've been able to get the same feel, tone and enjoyment for a fraction of the price.

I love the P-90 for cleans and overdrive and I use the bridge humbucker for metal.

Very pleasantly surprised by this guitar. Thanks, Thomann !

Great choice for elementary and pre-intermediate players
Vitali A., 14.10.2020
Overall, I'm satisfied with the quality of this guitar.

Like the most of new medium-priced guitars from the factory (I believe), it required a bit of service when it came. Nothing special there though, just basic preparations like checking electronics, frets, etc.

A set of pickups allows a large variety of sounds. I personally like P90 in combination with single-coiled bridge pickup (when tone knop is pulled). Meanwhile, Custom 5 in humbucker mode is pretty good for something harder.

I'm not a person, who knows much about tones and knows in detail how top-notch guitars should sound, but I'm absolutely satisfied with this one. As per me, it is more than enough for entry-level guitarists.

The only thing I have to mention is that sometimes I'm getting a buzz when I'm turning knobs, but I'm not sure what is the cause of this problem. I have a feeling, that it could be not a guitar itself, because when I've been playing on a different combo connected by different cable - I wasn't been able to reproduce that buzz.
In any case, this is a minor problem that could be easily fixed. Nothing critical.

I can absolutely recommend this guitar to everyone as a versatile tool of good quality!

excellente guitare; versatile
Marcceba, 03.12.2011
cette guitare est parfaite pour ce prix. habituté a Yamaha, je peux dire que ce niveau de sonorité et finition est difficile voire impossible a trouver chez les concurrents.

la guitare resonne bien a vide, et branchee, le son est droit, clair, precis et present. Le micro manche est un pur regal, ainsi que le micro aigu. Le sustain est surprenant... seule la position intermediaire est banale. Le manche est tres agreable et la finition tres honnete.

Cette guitare est tres interessante et on s'approche vraiment d'un son pro.

certains diront qu'elle manque de personnalité ou plutot de 'caractere', ce qui est vrai en fait mais ce n'est pas un defaut selon moi, et cela donne toute la liberte de faire 'son son' avec son matos et sa facon de jouer.

bref, je la conseille vraiment car elle est au dessus de tout ce que l'on peut trouver dans le 450 / 550 euros.

les plus + = absolument tout

les moins = manque "un peu" de caractere mais pour ca, acheter plutot une telecaster....
