I was looking for a guitar to use when I travel and found the Yamaha F310 at a great price with great reviews online. I went to a local guitar store in Texas and played it and I ended up getting the TBS color to have something different than a natural finish which my other guitar has. As a beginner I can offer this feedback: this guitar sounds great, looks great, has great action, and feels well built. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great guitar at a great price for whatever the reason or playing experience. Some people have complained about the action, but I can easily hold chords on this guitar (maybe it's the string gauge or defect). I personally don't like the way the black looks, but the natural and TBS look great


You will get a very good sound with this guitar, even if you are a beginner.


The tone is nice and crisp with the original strings, but even better with some light 80/20's. The finish is beautiful on the black version, with a nice rosette that's noticeable but not gaudy. The gold tuning knobs are great, they adjust easily and once the strings stretch a bit they need very few adjustments. The playability of this guitar is on par with models from other companies that cost 3 or 4 times as much. This gem was worth every cent!


I wanted it to show my son what kind of guitar I started playing and as it turns out I enjoy playing now. It's full body allows for great clear sound I would recommend this guitar for any beginner. The price is right and they're getting a solid first guitar. I buy them based on how they fit my hand. i need a wider neck on my guitars as I am teaching myself to play again after having a stroke. this is the perfect guitar for me.
