Superb guitar for the price. Don't have one myself but have played a couple and the sound is terrific.

Perfect for anyone wanting to learn to play guitar. (unless you're tiny and need something smaller)

Learnt on one of these years ago and paid more then. Heat.

I've got one of these, great guitar straight out of the box.
Mainly an electric player, so just wanted something cheap but quality, and this is bob on for that.

Had one of these for years, great guitar, had to spend a lot more than this on my next guitar....went to the shop with 250 and could not find anything as good as my F310, ended up paying 350 for a Faber....never even heard of Faber, but felt good to play.

Heard great things about this guitar for the price. Now to find £90 :P

Quality instrument, gutted that I gave mine to a mate to learn on when I got something a bit more upmarket. (Mainly because he kicked the **** out of it, having got frustrated after about 5 minutes)

Heat, btw

Fantastic guitar for beginners

Or for a extra 9.99 you get a tuner, strap, plectra , dvd and spare strings Your text here

I's also recommend this. Bought for my daughter when she started playing, and she carried on when most of her peers gave up. The teacher was so impressed with hers that he buys these now for the guitar club.

Damn it. I hate being a lefty

Get a job. Unions are scum. Up with Cameron.



Simply the best guitar on the market for the price. It plays as if it where twice the price at least.

Good deal.

Much better (and easier) to learn on one of these than your average dirt cheap classical guitar, (I've tried both).

I was looking at getting a "Little Martin" guitar to get back into it as the smaller size appeals to me. Really tempted to just get this one though for the price. Any thoughts?

For an extra £9 the one with the Basic Starter Pack looks better value? Comes with Yamaha YT100 Tuner (£12 on Amazon), DVD, strap, plectra and spare strings.

This is a great deal and fab guitar for beginners. Yamaha make some of the best 'starter' guitars there are and this is def one of them.

It has a great 'feel' and playability which should inspire new players to keep practising rather than some of the cheaper ones with terrible action and setup.

HEAT!

I have a Yamaha Pacifica electric but I'm very tempted to get this :O

need a yamaha flute lol - wish they would come up on offer too

I already play ukulele and have always wanted to play something other than the usual happy, giddy, uppity tunes... went for it.

How much does this retail for normally?

Just restring the guitar in reverse order.

I don't know what size a little Martin is, but I use a Big Baby Taylor and it sounds as sweet as honey! If you're after a slightly smaller guitar, the BBT is hard to beat!

I'm mainly an electric player but I bought one of these a year or so back. Fun to pick up. If you want to learn then this is perfect for that.

These are great, but the action is quite high at the higher frets.

I replaced the saddle (with a compensated buffallo bone one) to lower the action. It cost me £6 and not only is it even easier to play, it sounds far brighter and the intonation is much better.
Imo it was a little dull sounding, but it is a laminate top so you can't expect wonders.

Highly recommended upgrade.

Quality guitar. I have had this guitar for 6 years now and the sound from it still excellent. Voted hot

Yes the high action may end up putting beginners off playing guitar.

£90 is still a lot of cash for a beginners guitar. I was always told that your first guitar should be a 2nd hand effort for around £20-30.

Have I been lied to all these years?

Had one years ago, as some other comments state good guitar for beginners and I wouldn't turn my nose at it if I was asked to play, well worth the price, so heat added!

It depends on what guitar you can buy for £30. If you can buy an F310 second hand, then go for it. I'd certainly avoid buying a guitar brand new for £30 however, because cheap guitars usually sound cheap and nasty and are often more difficult to play because the strings tend to be farther from the neck (i.e. high action). The experience of trying to learn on a very cheap guitar may end up putting a beginner off. At least if you spend about £100, you'd be able to learn on a playable guitar that's decent and could even recoup some money by selling it if playing guitar wasn't for you.

My old man lied to me then!

The cheap **** - just didn't want to buy me a decent guitar!! X)

Really good guitar, I've been playing one for 3 years until last week when I bought a Takamine guitar (Japanese made guitar). The F310 is amazing for the price in terms of playability and sound, unless you play it very loud, then it sounds a bit muddy. But thats going to happen with laminate top guitars (they don't resonate as well as a real wood top guitar). People have mentioned that the action is a little high at the higher frets and that can happen quite often with lower end guitars. Sometimes a simple truss rod adjustment will straighten out the neck (that's if theres a slight bow/curve in the neck), or like sinbbaaad says, the saddle can be lowered too to compensate for the higher action.

Is this quitar not to big for a 9 years old boy?

Tempted by this as I would like to learn to play guitar. Any recommendations regarding a book/DVD to learn the basics?

I think learning to play guitar is an activity best done with others whether friends who play guitar or a guitar teacher. Find someone to learn from/ practice with and then get a book.

Fab beginners guitar.....
