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!

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!
