A good first guitar, and not bad price.

Yamaha's reputation for quality ensures that the F370 produces a big tone with plenty of sustain as well as being easy to play.
The F370 offers the same focus on quality, design and sound as all Yamaha acoustics and puts it in an incredibly affordable package.
Specifically designed to be kinder to finger tips, with a little less tension in the strings without loss of tone.
The straight neck, slightly shortened scale-length and perfect frets mean this guitar is ideal for beginners.

Using select tonewoods and stable, reliable hardware the guitar features a spruce top, and has nato back, sides and neck to give a well balanced tone which is bright and responsive.

Good value, though the entry level guitar market is alot more crowded these days. Lots of options out there, and not just acoustic.

Silly question but if you're a lefty could you just play this upside down?

Not really. The nut and bridge would need replacing to string it the other way around.

it is symmetrically shaped on the body which is good, but I think your bridge (not wanting to sound rude I am unsure if you are experienced or beginner) the white thing at the bottom of the strings, is angled particularly for the strings. I would maybe YouTube how/what you can to with that to make it a lefty, just to be sure before you consider buying.

It is possible, have a look on youtube for Eric Gales - he is an incredible player who doesn't restring. I would imagine it would be easier to play that way as a complete beginner than if you are an established player - messing about I have tried and it's the picking that is the problem, it feels so wrong

Was considering a budget Yamaha as a knock about..
Then I read the glowing reports on LAG a French company who also make budget guitars..
Chinese made too but they deploy American QC on site to oversee production
Found one locally I was blown away on handling it
I'm realistic about what's achievable with a laminate budget guitar.. but the quality of the neck is ridiculous..
Lovely 2mm action from factory, zero buzz.. and the intonation across the neck is better than ANY guitar I've owned before and that includes £2000 USA Gibsons and Fenders..
The neck is so nice just makes you want to pick up the guitar.. it would also be a great learner
The indonesian rosewood wood is smooth and the finish to the frets is exemplary
These LAG seem higher spec than rivals in the same price bracket for example a graphite nut.. so that should not wear quickly.. and for example even on the cheapest models.. a properly compensated graphic saddle...

Here's the saddle on the Yamaha F370 a straight line..

Here's the compensated saddle on a LAG

The finish is insane.. perfect gloss..

These Yamaha are brilliant.. seriously good.. but the LAG is even better it's hard to find a bad word

May post a deal I've seen one I think is better than this for the same money..

Hi. Which LAG model would you recommend?
Is there anything you think would be suitable for someone with short fat fingers.
Like one with a thin neck and low action?
