Nice Practice Nylon Electric

Thanks to my salesman Tim Harrington for taking care of me with this purchase. I was skeptical to get this online because i hadn't played it. But it was as described and it was flawless. Played pretty easy out the box but the action was higher than I cared for but i took care of that. Still working on sound thru PA. When that happens i'll possibly edit my review.

I found it!

I have been looking for a nylon string that wasn't built like a classic nylon string guitar.Well "I found it! This beauty not only is made as well as my Taylor nylon stringbut plays and sounds just as good, and if you spring for a very well made Gater soft shell caseyou get the whole package the Yamaha the case.The workmanship is flawless, the design is simple and beautiful. The built in tuner is handy, the pickup system has an e.q. and separate bass and treble and volume control, the guitar shines loaded or unloaded.Solid Spruce Top, solid Mahogany back and sides. I have not put this guitar down since I opened the box.By the way I sold the Taylor, I can use the extra cash.

Thin Body, Rich & Warm Tone.

Wow! This must be the best deal for the price. I bought the guitar for a gift to my wife. She loves it! It is a great healing to listen to her playing the guitar. Most of the classical guitars I owned in the past had big bodies and thin sound. But this is different! It has rich sound volume and thin body volume. Very economical and efficient. Do not hesitate to buy one. If you are new to Sweetwater, you don't have to make further research for a better deal. Basically prices are almost same at major dealers but Sweetwater provide the best service. They always send the best ones (nobody tried out my instruments except the highly skilled inspectors - I like this!) Ask for mister Sanders (Chris). He has been doing great job for me and very comfortable to do business with. Buy anything from Sweetwater you will be satisfied! (I am not personally associated with Sweetwater. I am one of many satisfied customers)

The electronics are fine.

Just a response to the guy with the noisy electronics….There is a "Bass" side and "Treble" side adjustment pots.( These control your 2 mics in the guitar)These knobs adjust how sensitive your mics are…..Turn them down, maybe?I have mine set at around 2-3, when they are turned way up, they are prone to pick up more noise.It took me a good 10 minutes until I found the sweet spot between noise and tone, but I am morethan satisfied with how mine sounds through my amp. Maybe give it another shot?

Top Notch!

First lets start with Sweetwater, Excellent from start to finish.Had a sales engineer in touch with Me the entire time, the shipping and packaging all top notch!!Now the guitar, the gloss(piano like) finish exceeded all of my expectations! Real niceThe tuning pegs are quite nice too, real sturdy and made out of a pretty material.The fretboard is super smooth, its plays real easy and has nice tone. Nice classical sound.Really like the onboard tuner, its quick and accurate. All of the on-boards electronics also make in easyto dial in the sound you like when you plug into an amp. The whole guitar feels professional in quality, very solid and well made.I highly recommend adding the Gator lightweight classical case to your order.Best $90 case, its soft out-side allows you to put it in and out of your vehicle without banging your car up,meanwhile the solid inside, fits the NTX700 like a glove and has a nice soft felt to prevent scratches.also has a few storage pockets for extra gear, the main pocket is big enough for a music book or two.Inside there is also a small storage area for picks and the sound hole mute that Yamaha includes with the guitar.Over all I spent a bit under $600 and feel like I got much more for my money.Top Notch!!! from start to finishThanks Sweetwater
