I've got bad GAS
Bought a Yamaha APX700. Built in pickup, preamp, EQ and tuner. With case $700.00 cdn. Which is like $700 US ? Go figure. I'd get a better price if I traveled two hours south but I'd have to travel two hours south.
I'm a bad boy.
I tried two Ovations and both had serious buzz. Nothing that couldn't be fixed but bad enough that I didn't want to wait a day or two to have it adjusted. This guitar has a nice rich tone which neither of the Ovations had. I'd attribute that to the shallow body. It's a cheap guitar. More expensive than the Ovations I tried but even the ones that were in the same price range weren't that great.
I'm not surprised the Yammy sounded better. Enjoy it, Hue!

GAS be beddy, beddy good to you.

Thanks guys. Hopefully I can put it to use in the way it deserves. I'll try and post some samples before the end of the year. :P
nice Yammy!, welcome to the club.
Sure does look pretty. I like Yamaha accoustics too. Sound nice they do.

Hueseph: how is the neck on the APX series? I was looking at the 12-string version of this guitar, which Yamaha says has a slim profile. Does the 6-stringer have a similar neck? Also, did you look at the CPX series and, if so, was there much difference other than body size?

The action is fine. It could be lowered by about a millimeter and an half and it should be just right. I didn't bother to leave it to have it adjusted but fortunately I get a free setup at my convenience. The factory set up is nice though. I don't know how lowering the action will affect the tone. This guitar has surprisingly deep tone considering the depth of the guitar.
As far as twelves are concerned, I'm not sure about them as they are a different animal.
My Yamaha FG is great. Its the only acoustic I'll ever need... Until I need a Seagull 12 string...
Who needs a signature?
I mean really...
It's almost always lyrics...
or a cliche...
or garbage about me...
Lets just save YOU from the pain, ok?
Very nice - enjoy! 8)
