Yamaha G-55A Reviews 4

I've played guitar for 10 years. I play keyboard, trombone, drums, bass, violin, ect. I play in a band named Sheldon Marsh centralized in Columbus, Ohio. I also perform solo around town as well. My tastes range from U.K. bands such as Radiohead to The Doves, to Icelandic bands such as Sigur Ros and Mum.

I aquired this unit from a woman moving out of the country. She sold it to me for $70.00.

I love the tone of this guitar. It is warm and welcoming. The old Yamaha classical guitars have such a great sound. If you spent around the same amount of money on a different brand of classical guitar you would get a piece of crap guitar that is hardly playable and sounds like a toy.

The action comes a little higher than I'd prefer, but that can be adjusted.

The construction is good and the quality is not amazing, but good enough for the price

I would say this guitar is definitely worth buying. You can find them everywhere on Ebay or Craigs List. They withstand a little rough housing and keep their tone through thick and thin. With a $40.00 professional set-up from your local guitar shop, this guitar will play like a dream.
