Experience has taught me that a bottom-of-the-line Yamaha is good reliable guitar. Very playable, and often sounding much better than many guitars costing more.
True ... I had an old Yamaha that just hung in my garage untouched for nearly 30 years. Last year I refurbished it by stripping it back to bare wood, French polishing, new tuners, new bone nut and saddle ... I even did a Simplicio-style headstock carving. Turns out a forty year old Yamaha has a pretty good solid spruce top, and plays and sounds rather nice ... much better than the average beater.
Put down the bagpipes ...
... and no one gets hurt.
