#201029 Guitar recommendations for an advanced player

Posted by dr00p on 10 February 2016 - 10:55 PM

Pity you broke your guitar!


I like Yamaha's. They are really well made. And yet they tend to be cheap secondhand. They also have 22 frets, like your Dean. Don't know if 24 frets is an hard demand, or however to say it.  


I read over the last sentence, and was saying maybe an good (cheap) secondhand would be an option and with Yamaha I dare to say you can't go wrong. Secondhand or new.


Yamaha Pacifica and RGX series, look it up. They also got a bunch of new guitars, called RevStar, RS. Literally 2 for months now. Those look awesome I think. Did not hold one yet. But actually I think you should really check them out on Yamaha's website and/or youtube for a moment. They come with an fixed bridge as well.


I myself have an Pacifica 112J electric guitar. With EMG 81/SV/SV pickups :) Sounds super nice. Not really Yamaha tough.. :D Than I have an acoustic western guitar, the FX310-A. And an classical guitar, the CG101-A. The last two I bought second handed. The electrical new. All Yamaha. And all three are (good) beginner guitars. But they sound, feel and play wonderful to my ears and hands. The western was my first, found it in a shop. I play for 10, 12 years now.



Good luck with finding a new guitar!
