Y’all, let’s have a talk here, seriously. You won’t find a better quality, or better sounding instrument with these specs in this price range. As a professional musician you could take it on the road and feel well equipped with a good instrument, even though it’s at an entry level price range. It’s just that good.
We are all longtime Yamaha fans here at the store! Having collected and played on a number of the older and more collectible models over the years, we always knew just how good a well made Yamaha could be. And we are very pleased to announce that since we became a dealer and started getting in a large number of these guitars in all price ranges, the consistency and “bang meets buck” factor have been off the charts. Honestly, we have compared these 820/830 series guitars to instruments that are 3 times the price and these hold up very well. In many cases we actually preferred the Yamaha. Several of us here are gonna pick one up at some point just to have a robust and powerful instrument that is a low risk travel/camp guitar. Perfect for a backup or for anyone starting out on their guitar playing journey who may not want to invest a lot of money.
Includes full professional setup for easy playability, strap button installation, and ships for free in the lower 48.
