Back to the future..

I love this guitar! I've only had it for a week but the bond with it grows deeper each time I pick it up. Bought it on kind of a whim, just something to add to my collection. But I soon realized this thing was taking me back to the classical style of playing I learned years ago. It has gently forced me to find that voice again after years of playing with a pick. (It would seem obscene to use a pick on her!) As noted by others, her voice unamplified is a bit quiet but just glows when you plug her in. And the controls (dual pickups) make for a wide range of tonal colors. The guitar seems to want to go into tune and stays there once you tweak it a bit. Get one you won't regret it.
Music background: Fifty years of noodling, classical, rock and everything in between.

NTX 1200R

Now that I've been playing it for 6 months, I can truly say how much I really enjoy this guitar. It plays superbly. A bit quiet when used alone, but when utilizing the electronics, WOW. It really sings!!

Yamaha NTX 1200 R

This guitar plays great plugged or unplugged and the feel is marvelous. I read a previous review about the cost for a foreign made guitar, but this guitar has it all. Also I just read in Taylor's Wood and Steel 2016 Volume 4, page 4 that Taylor Guitars are soon to be manufactured in, you guessed it , Tecate, BC, Mexico. Will that curb your appetite for a Taylor? I doubt it. So just enjoy this guitar for all its beauty and playability!


The tone is incredible, it speaks when it's played! Amplified it does well also

So amazing!!!

Amazing sound! Lots of fun to play with this guitar! I used to play steel-string acoustic guitar, so the 14th-fret cutaway body makes the play comfortable!
