MGR/Chris Iowa's review"Yamaha F-310"

Yamaha F310
I purchased this from an Exchange store on base for $250 USD back in 1998. Wanted to continue my practicing while I served in the Army.

It is a well made and solid guitar. Had bright sound with it's original strings. When the strings were replaced with a more heavier strings, had very nice resonance. Stays in tune very well over the period I've had it.

Action on the strings were a little high until I changed to a heavier string. Some of the fret edges were rough and required a little filing on the edges.

Very solid in construction. Some fret edges were rough.

Very good guitar for learning and practicing with. Had this now for over 7 years and it still is going strong. I use it now to teach my daughter how to play as I've graduated to a better guitar.

I acquired the guitar throw music and Arts. I payed about 300.00 for it a case a tuner and a pack of strings.

It is a great beginers model. If you are not shure you are going to stick with it like me you can bye it and move up to a better one when you have the money and the skill.

It is cheap and very easely damaged. I damaged myn by the slightest hit.

The quality sucks. I tried to put a pick-up in it to send my sound back to are church sound guy andn it did not make it back there. it has a great sound if you do not want to send it throw a pick-up.

If you are just thinking about playing it then this would be a great insterment for you but if you know for a fact that you are going to stick with it get something a little bite better.

I bought this guitar (my first)at a local music shop for $160. After trying out several different brands, I settled on the Yamaha because: it was cheap, I liked the fret spacing, and it was easier to play fingerstyle than others in its price range.

It's a nice compact size (I'm not a real big guy), so it sits comfortably when I play. The factory sound was okay, but imporved dramatically (especially the bass end) after I replaced the strings with something that has a brand name. The tuners hold well, even under duress (I have 2 small kids who like to "help" Daddy play), and it has proven to be relatively durable, although the dark finish on the headstock seems a bit brittle.

Well, it's pretty much the cheapest Yamaha acoustic on the market, so I can't really complain too much about it. My main beef with the F310 is its rather wimpy bass. The low notes don't seem able to make it out of the sound hole really well (maybe they're stuck in all the extra glue in there....)

As already stated, the F310 is a low-end guitar, so it won't hold up to comparison with more expensive instruments. It has a laminate top, and I'm not sure of the wood used in the rest of it. The finish is really dark everywhere but the top, and as mentioned above, rather brittle on the upper neck and head. The high-gloss finish is fairly thinkly applied, which makes it hard to hurt, but doesn't improve the sound quality at all. A quick look inside reveals a lot of rough edges and extra glue squished out from behind the bracing, too.

All that being said, the F310 is a decent beginner's guitar. It is easy to play, and therefore easy to learn on. In my opinion, it's not a guitar to hold on too much past your novitiate, though. I bought mine 5 months ago, and I'm ready to move up to a better-quality instrument.

MGR/Sp_laser's review"Yamaha F-310"

I bought a Yamaha F-310 about a year and a half ago from a catalogue store in the high street. I paid £100 ($150) for it and the package included a guitar tutor book by Yamaha.

Admittedly, I chose this guitar for its price - it is very reasonable to get a steel string guitar for £100!

I thoroughly enjoy playing this guitar. It has a nice bright sound and complements other acoustic guitars nicely. It also stays in tune for a long time. It has also maintained its sound well and hasn't started making any nasty noises yet!

I found that the action on the strings to be a little too high - so I had the bridge lowered. Unfortunately, that made the strings buzz on some frets. I therefore had the frets smoothed and filed down. Now it sounds gorgeous! I have also replaced the strings with a heavier set. I found this resonated the body much better and produced a more rounded sound - especially on the bass strings.

The construction is pretty good. The frets were a little rough perhaps. I have looked after mine fairly carefully and it looks the same as the day I bought it.

For a starter guitar it is good value and plays quite nicely. After a couple of years though I would suspect that most people would want to buy a more expensive guitar.
