Flat handle, finer than a true classical guitar. Rosewood fingerboard (ebony would have been better ...)
Micro B-Band preamp including 2 levels of reverb (room and lobby), a volume, adjust bass, treble adjustment. An on / off button, a line in (3.5 mm input jack) with volume, output jack to connect 6.35 mm amp or console.

Eclisse amovile top (removable for transporting the guitar in the cover provided).
Power sector, earphones.

Good finish.

UTILIZATION

Fun to play, the neck is, as I said earlier, narrower than a true classical guitar.
The guitar is a real lightweight.

Some newer models than mine are equipped with a finger rest (plastic or wood depending on the model), something that is missing on my model as handy anyway ... Here, the lack of "body" and the rest without fingers, it's hard to start and even with the time I still have trouble (I must find this accessory ...)

SOUNDS

Often used plugged directly into the mixer.
The sound is not too bad, I do not use reverbs included because I think they bring a lot of breath especially in the second position "hall") and I prefer to add reverb directly into my DAW when mixing (or during decision).

Apart from that, as discussed below, there is a large imbalance between the volume three strings and three high strings. This is a point that I think is really unfortunate.
Arpeggios must compensate the acute attack strings, and rhythm, the lack of "body".

OVERALL OPINION

Originally this guitar was put on the market by Yamaha guitar as study / travel, it is very good given its size and weight.
Unfortunately, at the expense of sound.

It's not bad, but nowhere near the sound of a classic electric guitar with a body.


Concerning autonomy and the different opinions that I have read, attention, autonomy is very good (about 16 to 20 hours of play without reverb effect in my case) provided to remove the jack (6.35 mm when the plug is connected, the on / off button has no effect and the guitar is "on", which empty indeed the battery faster).
