The neck is comfortable, even if you need to sweat a bit to play F on the first fret.
Access to the higher frets is easy (even if that's not exactly what you look for on this guitar).
Nice design, it rests fine on your hands.


Not much to say in terms of sound. I had the opportunity to test other brands at the same price point and the Yamaha stood out. The controls allow you to get the sound you are looking for.


Its value for money is truly excellent.
Other brands should be concerned about how serious things work at Yamaha.
Finally a brand that doesn't have one hell of a nerve and whose prices are generally justified.
