Ive had this guitar for over 20 years and it still sound great. I started out with it and I still use it. Great beginner guitar. Easy to use and learn on.

If you find one, get it. I'm amazed at the great sound. It's fun to play and it's a workhorse so you can take it anywhere and not be worried. I have a Martin I only want to use for gigs so the Yamaha is my get up and go guitar.

I bought my FG 400A in 1989 from a local music shop. It had, for a beginner, a reasonably low action and the ability to hold its state of tune for a reasonable length of time. The guitar has been with me ever since and as I have grown more capable, I still return to it because of the depth of sound, particularly on the base strings. It has stood up to a fairly robust life and has acquired a few dents and scratches along the way. What is interesting is that if I give this to someone who has not played it before they are surprised by the quality of what is essentially a budget guitar. It plays alongside my Martin jumbo well and has not suffered any problem with either the machine heads or the bridge. I would say that you need to change the strings regularly to get the best out of it. Other guitars have come and gone, but I will hang onto this one as it has virtually nil value on the second hand market and can be taken anywhere. I keep it in a Yamaha Hiscock hard case. If you can find one then take a risk - they are good for both beginner and as a "hack" for the more experienced.
