Picked one up the other day. I really like it. I have a beater Yamaha that i have out in my living room that i pick in the living room or out in the garage or when people come over. I've always loved the action on it and the sound. I kind of wanted to keep that with an electric acoustic for gigs. It was between a Taylor GA and the Yamaha but my budget leaned more towards the Yamaha, lol.I've been playing this new one pretty much all the time. The built in chorus and reverb are pretty slick.

I haven't looked at recent Yamahas but my first acoustic in the 70's was an FG180 or 200 (can't remember). In 1995, when I was guitarless, I bought an FG-461S (solid spruce top). Great guitar but over the years, the neck twisted slightly. Still very playable but I was annoyed. Yamaha offered to exchange it but they didn't have a similar model so I kept it.

I primarily play one of my two Martin dreads now and the Yamaha is relegated to more casual use.

I've never owned an electric acoustic but I can see their benefits.

The actuator in the guitar gives you built in reverb and chorus. You don't need to be plugged in to an amp. I can't wait to gig with it.

Yamaha has incorporated an audio exciter (transducer) on the soundboard, along with some sound effects circuitry. It's similar technology to the Tonewood Amp that's been available for several years.

I have the Tonewood Amp and it is a pretty cool thing.
