    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 string
    but plays and sounds just as good, and if you spring for a very well made Gater soft shell case
    you 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!

    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 more
    than 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 nice
    The 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 easy
    to 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 finish

    Thanks Sweetwater

    Great sound Easy to play

    This guitar runs circles around other in its price range. Great woody tone and superb electronics.

    Can't Beat it!

    For the price, this is an amazing guitar. We use it live for the occasional Nylon String sound... electronics are fine... set up is fantastic! Plays like an electric... This is absolutely worth the bucks... I haven't found anything remotely close for the price... the next close would be around $800-$1000

    More Than I Expected...

    I've actually owned this guitar a few years now, and decided to post a review based on that experience. The guitar has held up very well, and while I wouldn't say it's "opened up", like say a Taylor/Martin/etc. will do over time, but it does have a bit of a warmer tone IMO after three years of fairly regular playing.
    I have also used the guitar playing out via a PA, and that is where this guitar really impresses. It sounds like a much more expensive guitar on stage, which is great considering it's a very moderately priced instrument. Also have to say the neck feels pretty good as well, not as wide as a traditional nylon classical, kind of a hybrid feel, but very respectable.

    If you are looking for a good working nylon for gigging, home recording (also an area where this guitar performs very well), or just a want to wade into a decent playing nylon without spending $, this is definitely a guitar to consider.

    Yamaha NTX700

    I enjoy the acoustic playability of my NTX700. It's smooth and the intonation is right on the money. It wasn't until I plugged it in that my opinion changes. I thought it has a piezo pickup...but now I realize it has 2 mics under the bridge. The EQ is not good at all and the mics pick up every little sound throughout the guitar. I can't seem to get the EQ in between full bass and full treble...it's all or none. I'll use it in my studio as an acoustic guitar.
