MGR/TabPlayer's review"Yamaha EG-112"

Yamaha EG112U
I was playing my acoustic guitar and the more I play, the more I desired a electric since I cant play good punk or metally stuff on it. I got this guitar set from costco online in christmas for 189 USD, the shipping was fast, it was about three days. There are the red one and the black one. It is very well built, also amazing that it was made in china. This guitar is made of basswood, neck is maple and fingerboard is rosewood. It also has a standard tremolo bridge and one tone, volume and five-way pickup switch. Also comes with a 7Volt?? speaker and a bunch of other things including extra strings.

It is well built, very loud for a bedroom environment. The tremolo is very cool, the guitar has a humbucker pickup. It is great for metal or punk rock. It doesnt get out of tune that often, as I have seen in other reviews. I like the small frets, it is very easy to play, except for the friction on the fingerboard which is very hard to move around with. It can also receive pinch harmonics pretty good when it is turned to the loudest and the highest treble. I guess the features are more than enough for a beginner like me, in general, this is a very good guitar for its price.

The strap is very dangerous, when you put on the strap, remember to hold the guitar tightly(in case it falls). It catches dust very fast(well, I leave it out on the stand most of the time)The amp also buzzes when turned on drive. That is basically all the bad things you would need to know.

Again, it is well built especially for a made in china. (I expected indonesia, oh well)
Made in China
Body wood: basswood
Fingerboard: rosewood
neck: maple
Chrome tuners
One Volume+Tone button and 5-way pickup switch
SSH pickup-combo
Standard Tremolo(only goes one way instead of two)
Includes whammy bar

It is an exceptional guitar for it's price, more than what i expected for 200 bucks. Fun to play with if you are dying for an electric guitar. If you get this guitar, I guarantee you will not regret spending the money.

Yamaha EG112U
i got this guitar kit for 299.99$ canadian at yamaha canada Ltd.(in scarborough,ontario,canada)you're not supposed to buy it there-but after e-mailing yamaha canada-the supervisor decided to sell me one.usually-you're supposed to get it at costco or sam's club-but those places need membership cards to buy.i got this guitar kit because it's the best guitar kit you can get for this prics-it's better than all the others at this price range.

i like that it came with pretty much anything you need(guitar,GA-10 amp,strap,cable,string winder, extra pck of strings,gig bag,3 picks,and a tuner).it has a great sound-perfect for practicing or improving-but for gigging-you might wanna get another amp(nothing wrong with the amp-it's just not powerful enough-10 watts)it was low-price,as well.

There's not really anything i don't like about this guitar kit-i'm satisfied with my purchase.

-22 frets
-made in indonesia
-agathis body
-maple neck
-2 single coils
-1 humbucker
-1 master volume
-1 master tone
-5 way switch
-lamented top( like a car)

the quality of this guitar is great-there's nothing to bitch about it.

the guitar kit sounds and works well.it's durable.low-priced.good quality.better than other models this price.great for beginners.a great buy.i recommend it.

MGR/Peter Griffin's review"Yamaha EG-112U"

I went to the shop, but the seller told me that the Squir Strat had a worse starter packet and said that the Yamaha guitar is a exact copy of the Squir. I got the Yamaha, a 20 W amp, gigbag and a strap for 299 €.

It's sound is fantastic! It playes easyer than my friends Squir strat ja the Yamaha feels good. It's alsow very well built, feel very strong eventought it's a light guitar.

The only problem is that it's not the original Fender Stratocaster USA/Mexico. And the fact that it only has one not two tuners.

It's well built, never felt that it might break. It's sound is alsow good and clean, but if you hit the strigs very hard it does rattle a bit.
The neck on this guitar is very good and it slide easy for me. And I love that it has the humbucker!

Great value! It's the best beginner guitar I know and it's cheap! Squir is no better and only costs more.
Well built, good sound, 22 frets, easy-to-play neck and a low price.

MGR/Bergerud's review"Yamaha EG-112 Electric Guitar"

Yamaha EG112U
Like the other review, I got this guitar in a package deal with a nice practice amp, picks, extra strings, and a tuner from Costco, for about 300 something CDN. Talk about cheap!

I was very pleased with the build quality and looks of this guitar. It is light, but solid, with beatiful glossy black lacquer paint. The guitar has very precise, quick action, is really easy to play, and features nice little additions like a bridge humbucker that gives good crunchy distortion, and a rosewood fretboard. The tremolo stays in tune after use, which is nice,

Though it is a beautiful well-built guitar, I dont't really like it's tone; it is crystal clear, and very trebly, which is good for some songs, but not general use. It lacks low end punch. Yamaha tends to make instruments without character, and this is no exception. I suspect that the tone is a result of the pickups, so if you buy this guitar as a beginner, then advance, and demand better sound, you could replace the pickups with some aftermarket ones. Also, the lack of an extra tone knob means that you can't be very versatile with your sound, at least with the controls on the guitar.

I'd give this guitar an excellent rating for build quality, it's not just good for the money, it's good compared to any guitar. It is well painted, well put together, with good components, and is very durable.

For the beginner guitar player, I would definately recommend this guitar. It is insanely cheaply priced. I haven't seen lower quality guitars for more money than this one. The build quality and looks are top notch, playability is top notch, and it has great features (minus the lack of midrange tone knob). The only real minus is the tone (more trebly than average), but it still beats the hell out of having to play an acoustic guitar. If you buy as a beginner and progress, you can always upgrade the pickups for the sound you want.
This guitar is excellent for the beginner, or an acoustic player going electric, or even an advanced player who likes the crystal clear, trebly sound.
