“ Brand: Yamaha / Guitar Type: Electric Guitar „
This is a guitar that I have had for donkeys years and it is completely road worn (so must be worth something!) And i don't mean deliberately road worn, its been genuinely road worn through the amount of work its done. Its been to gigs, bars, and still to this day works perfectly.
It did get work pretty quick around the corners though. I suspect the paint they used to make this wasn't very good. It came off around the bottom left and right corners after 4 months of general use. It also chips easily due to the softness of the wood.
It is pretty comfortable to use, and in my years of experience, i haven't had any problems with my skin from moving up and down the wood. Its waxed and very smooth.
The strings are a little expensive to replace, and getting replacement paint for this is damn near it impossible. Mechanically it works fine now, but in the past i had one of the cable connectors break on me. Probably from jamming the output lead in with a heavy hand for so long.
The sound from this thing is perfect, and it automatically shapes the noise for you, so you wont get any ups and downs halfway through a note if you haven't moved. Its just a constant tone that never ever changes, unless you deliberately make it change. on my old guitar the pitch went up despite me holding it in the same position. Rubbish guitar that was.
I would not recommend this for children, or beginners. It can be hard to get used to and being Yamaha its top end market in the first place, and so you should start with something easier to get the hang of.
If your heart is set on this though its a good choice, it will last (mechanically) for some time, and might well be worth something someday.
