I am a professional studio and performing musician who purchased this instrument to fill a temporary gap in my acoustic arsenal for a small-sized guitar while waiting for a commissioned, custom-made instrument to be delivered.
Pros - Sound quality, playability and workmanship are exceptional at this price point
Cons - Tuners are low-end Gotohs that don't provide precise tuning. These machines were replaced with Grover 102 series Rotomatics. OEM Yamaha strings are thick, dull and hard to play.
