I couldn't agree more. The FSX5 is my first Yamaha and I'm very impressed. Tone, playability and electronics are up there with the big names without a doubt

I spent a lot time checking out acoustics in the $2-4k range and there are unquestionably some amazing guitars in this price range but I can honestly say that I have never experienced a guitar like this. The resonance the body projects is absolutley amazing....the build quality is top notch, the necks plays so well and the pickup does what a pickup should do by letting that beautiful tone and resonance shine. Wow Yamaha...wow!
