Yamaha FD01S Acoustic Guitar

      • Solid spruce top
      • Mahogany back and sides
      • Rosewood fingerboard and bridge
      • 20 frets
      • Full size dreadnought acoustic body

The Yamaha fd01s acoustic guitar is labeled the best beginner guitar by many because of the value and the quality of sound that it provides. The guitar is made of solid spruce top with eastern mahogany back and sides. You can therefore be sure that sound will be rich in quality and tone, similarly to the model we feature in our FG800 Yamaha review. The guitar also has great projection.

Having a great solid build the guitar is suitable for intermediate and pro guitarists but perfect for beginners because they can start off with a high quality but affordable guitar. A beginner can grow with it and learn into mastery without changing until they have gained the skills required. A beginner can also opt for the model in our Epiphone DR100 review which is a cheaper alternative but still has a good quality sound.

The craftsmanship of the Yamaha fd01s acoustic guitar is amazing and the sound produced is professional. The truss rod can be adjusted just like the other Yamaha guitar we feature in this Yamaha FG830 review. You can change the strings or lower the action to improve performance on this guitar.

The Yamaha fd01s acoustic guitar is the affordable, high performance acoustic guitar that any beginner can grow with and maybe hopefully never learn to outgrow. It is a wonderful instrument to have with you without all the frills. If you have the money, you might want to consider the one in our Taylor Academy 12E review since it’s a quality model that a beginner can have a great time learning how to play with.
