Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Yamaha's quality is superb. I have a 40 year old Yamaha Acoustic and a 20 year old Yamaha Classical and they sound better today than when I purchased originally purchased them. The SLG130NW appears to be even better in quality. Yamaha did their homework when they designed and built this guitar.
How has it stood up over time?
I've only had it for a few days, so too new to evaluate Reliability. Based upon my initial impressions, it will WILL stand the test of time.
Your general opinion of this product.
Great guitar and fits my needs perfectly. The neck is great and more comfortable then my standard classical guitar!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It is perfectly balanced, smooth, fast neck and control are perfectly placed for adjustment while playing.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Total range of tones. I love the effects, especially Reverb 2 which makes it sound as if I'm playing in a cathedral.
How did the stain or paint job look?
It is beautiful, no errors and sub-standard work.
How was the action out of the box?
Perfect. No adjustments needed.
