Yamaha FG-420-12
I'll let you read the previous post for this topic


Handle pretty easy to play


I registered especially for this topic, I have made my twelve string strings ... an eight because I could not find the sound you want and then the ideal
I just kept the strings and if half creating a slight shift in tone between the two strings if both strings and mi. This creates an echo and a perfect balance between bass and treble

Try I promise you will be amazed, the result is much better than some six strings very very expensive


Try the eight strings!

Yamaha FG-420-12
Taiwan manufacture ...
21 frets ...
D'after my luthier nothing solid in the ...
Not even the table ... sitka stuck and the back and sides mahogany plywood.
Abalone rosette or not worked, it's really simple, very simple.


Well, I think the neck is a little lumberjack .... but I "m too noticed more.
She suffered a refrettage and setting, since this is much better.
This is the size yamaha western ... between a dreadnought and jumbo.
Access to acute blah ... yes I used too (treble) ...


Then its because this is what interests ...
Bé to see that this is a guitar made of plywood, frankly it's not that bad.
Bass present but without ... maybe just too much presence in the media,
but good to the touch and is corrected at this price should not ask the ultimate.


I wanted to change when I took the Zik group (pop acoustic session) and I took the time and tried a 12-string budget set between 500 and 800 euros...Epiphone / Seagull / Ibanez / Takamine / Norman / Breedlove ...
At the end I kept my Yam because there was nothing that was really better and justify 700 euros to sound less like view. Apart from the Takamine G Series Jumbo that sounded just like meadows
That was in 2007. Since I try 12 ... the last one Epiphone (A format dread), I do not know the model but the price is 635 euros and frankly it's not because it's my Yam scratches but sounds better It is true ... that the body is a little bigger but it does not justify.
May be in the Yam LL16/12 in massive would be better, but I have not tried.
When I see the price of this model in secondhand (150 to 300 euros) I can not say that for beginners, it will go ahead tjrs better than today to 600 euros.
Since I bought a fly for this lady because she has POCS everywhere, I have not made a gift but now I take care of.
I keep trying as soon as I can, so that judgment may change, but for now as my luthier: "better a good scratch plywood in a massive bad."
Today I care and if I buy something else that will be in the high end to really make the difference, if difference there ...
