Smooth, perfect guitar
Bambus, 01.05.2015
This guitar seems to be the most perfect craftmanship I have ever seen on a guitar. I cannot find any imperfections. The frets are smoothly polished. The fretboard are very dense and with no signs of tools or swirls from sanding. Just buffed and polished to perfection.

I have Gibsons, Epiphone, Martins and have checked out many more guitars, but the Yamaha SA2200 is just perfect in every aspect. It looks gorgeous, it plays like butter and sounds fantastic.

This must be the best ES 335 clone out there :)

Except for the switch everything was great
Christian867, 02.11.2009
Der Klang ist sehr variabel und mit den Tonreglern gut zu kontrollieren und die split coil Funktion eröffnet viele zusätzliche Fendersounds: Klasse!

Es ist ein Koffer dabei, der leider nicht das Niveau der Gitarre erreicht. Er erfüllt seinen Zweck, aber bei meiner akustischen Taylor sieht das ganz anders aus. Aber wenn man es als kostenlose Zugabe zur Gitarre sieht, gibt es hier eigentlich auch nichts zu meckern.

Der Pickup-Umschalter hingegen ist wirklich ein Kritikpunkt. Bereits nach ½ Jahr gab es öfters Aussetzer, bis 2 Monate später der Steg-Pickup gar nicht mehr wollte. So soll es nicht sein und das passt überhaupt nicht zum Rest, zumal ich da wohl nicht der einzige bin. Nach Ausbau (ging relativ einfach) und Kontakt 60 in den offenen Umschalter war aber Ruhe. Mit Blick auf den Rest gehört hier einfach ein gekapselter Umschalter rein. Sollte das 20EUR mehr kosten. wäre ich bestimmt nicht der Einzige, der die gerne zahlt.

Fazit: bis auf den Umschalter alles top." data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="After I never tried the guitar in Treppendorf (barely there, the few copies were already gone), I ordered the SA2200 with the money back guarantee.
