Solid spruce top, back and sides of sycamore wood beautiful, mechanical oil bath, rosewood fingerboard. In what country is it made? No idea, I really do not care as long as it is fair and it sounds.
No pan then cut limited access to acute, but it is because of this that we have a rich and full sound.
The handle seems very comfortable, the violin is simple but of good quality. No frills, suddenly the price is content. For example, no pearl on rosette. It is nevertheless very class with two wood colors intermingled.
I use it as part of a acoustic blues duo (guitar, harmonica). It was this side just enough gloss, without exaggeration. I love. I just made a first gig with, I coupled with an M1 + EAR, the sound was natural, it worked well.
It still has the original strings, Yamaha made it seems to me, with anti-rust. They are fairly resistant to the test of time, I do not feel the need to change them for the moment. I still wait to see what look like his other games with ropes.
I use it for about a month. I made a first gig with, I am delighted. Certainly there are many more expensive guitars that sound probably better, but when we performed live in sometimes cramped and crowded places, as was the case with people who pass you by without stopping, we're really glad have a not too expensive and yet sounding guitar.
I tried everything that is praised in Forums (AC3R, GPCPA4, etc..) And yet I decided for this guitar without knowing the price or features, because it appealed to me (all the story is told here: After a month and a concert, I'm not disappointed.
Only regret having bought it new when I see that there are a good price on occasion. Well, I was in a hurry. I think those who think that because sell-that-is-not-dear-that is not great. They are wrong, at least that's my opinion.
