NAGD: New Acoustic Guitar Day

I bought this today. My new Yamaha FG730. Spruce top, Rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck. It's a cheap guitar, but I was blown away by the quality for the price. Many other guitars in the price range couldn't sound as good and things like binding, fretwork and other cosmetic things suffered severely.

Even though she's a budget guitar, she's still one I love:

About $300 adjusted for yen-dollar ratio. Pretty nice for the price, I would buy one for $500 easy, maybe more. I'm constantly blown away by Yamaha's price/quality ratio.

I've owned a Taylor 710 same woods and style. The Taylor was a $2500 guitar then and yes it played better and sounded better by a long shot but not $2200 better. I played probably 8-10 guitars in the past few days looking for a cheap acoustic for playing in Church and compared to everything, even some used mid level Takamines, was the most complete package for the price.

I highly recommend the Yamaha FG730. In Japan we only get a 1 year waranty in the US you'd get a limited lifetime waranty. That's somehting to think about.
