For quite some time now, Yamaha’s acoustic guitars have been synonymous with great performance and excellent build quality, with a model to suit most wallets. The Yamaha FG series has been upgraded with design features inherited from the L-Series, so this guitar looks promising.

The FG700MS is the least expensive model in the series but shares many of the features and proportions that are common across the range.

The ‘M’ in the model name denotes a matte finish, although in reality there is a slight sheen that is closer to satin.

It’s interesting to see Yamaha incorporating this as an option at this level of their acoustic range. The associated tonal benefits of thin finishes have been frequently debated and in recent years many manufacturers have offered this, although often at a premium as a high-end custom feature!
