    Body meranti (mahogany close)
    Nato neck (near mahogany)

    UTILIZATION

    A slight and very playable guitar. The handle is a bit thin for my taste which induces fatigue and difficult to obtain agreement on the bars. The height of the saddle is too high it definitely helps.

    SOUNDS

    Good guitar accompaniment. Correct intonation. After the tenth case, the accuracy is discurable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 14 months. I tried many models since and should surpass the 500 euros for a real difference in sound.

    I bought a guitar from any massive guitar but this gave me the taste to the game and it certainly accompany me for a long time in the garden, walks, the beach ...

    The Yamaha are sure about to apprehend a wide range of style. We may want more character progressing.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    Paid $250 w/case in 1999 as a first guitar.

    It has surprisingly good sound, which was the reason I bought it.

    The bridge tore off the guitar, and one fret was not placed quite right creating a buzz when played.

    The guitar has a very good sound for the price, it is a decent first guitar. Just be carefull what type of strings you place on it.

    I bought this guitar myself at A music store named "Sobers Music". This is my second guiar. I boght this guitar becouse my first guitar was no longer playable. I paid $199.99 for this peticular guitar.

    I like the sound qality of this instrument. It has a good clean sosund. I also like the way it looks. It's definately worth the price I paid for it!

    I found that the varnish chips easily, so you can't be too too rugh with it.

    The construction of this guitar is pretty good. I had this guitar for about eight months and it's starting to "ring". I'm not sure why, I think the nut could have been better quality!

    Purchased as my first guitar at Mars Music in Springfield, VA as Yamaha's Gigmaker package (elec. tuner, picks, strap, etc.) for $199.

    As a beginner guitar, the F310 is a pretty good buy, especially for the price. It has a good, full sound, and there are some "sweet spots" on the neck where the tone is actually OK.

    Doesn't stay in tune worth beans and there are quite a few "dead" frets along the fret board (i.e., the tone flattens a bit compared to the rest of the frets). The fretting for barre chords is sub-par.

    The workmanship is what you can expect for the price: the binding is so-so; the tuners are garbage; the bracing could be better; the frets and neck are inconsisent.

    OK for the new student, but you'll be ready for a new guitar within a year.

    This is my Costcos guitar. Yes, I bought a guitar from Costcos Wholesaler... it was a 100 dollar package thingie...and basically was bought for convience. It was my first guitar, and a "trial" to see if I was serious or not.

    I like the fact that I can use the "Costco Guitar" pun on it... but as in the guitar itself, it seems to stay tuned for a while as long as you don't bang it around... and... well, its a guitar! That's an up! >D And its shiny! I'm easily amused, so shiny is a good thing.

    The sound isn't all that great, but its not like you expect a Costco guitar to have great sound. I also broke one of the strings that was included with it within a week... while loosening it.... and... its kind of a yucky yellow color.

    The thing is quite solid, except I could dent it easily... is that an oxymoron? It didn't seem like it would fall apart and crumble. Nope.

    The Costco Guitar was fine for my first year of playing, but after a while, you just need to move on. So, if you can ever find this guitar at Costco for 100ish bucks, and you just remotely want to learn acoustic guitar, and you don't mind if its not the best thing in the world, go ahead! Take the chance and buy it! >D
