Thanks to some friends who gave me a generous gift card to Sweetwater, and my Mom helping make up the difference, I got this really great Christmas present!
I’ve been practicing, so far, on my trusty Strat. The next logical step seemed to be an acoustic for all of those campfire song sort of situations, or just anywhere I want to play and not drag an amplifier.
Enter, the Yamaha FG800. I did a lot of research, and it seemed to be one of the best price point acoustic guitars (i.e., relatively high quality for guitars in its low price range, the most-often recommended student/beginner instrument.)
So far, it’s delightful! Fit and finish are nice, and, it seems very resonant. Other than that… I’m not much of a guitar expert.
