Yay!

I got married last Friday and the new missus surprised me with this little beauty on the morning of the big day. Picture is minus the big wedding bow:



Yammy FG-720-S-12. Apparently she bought it months ago knowing nothing of the various models available (except that I'd previously said I liked Yamaha acoustics and wanted a 12 string), and not knowing that this was the exact one that I'd been hankering for!

There was a bit of confusion in the shop over whether it should be left or right handed (I'm a lefty who plays righty) but she figured it out in the end

Has a huge sound, very rich and vibrant. Technically challenging to play but brilliant when you get it right. I will probably have a bone nut & saddle fitted at some point but for now it plays beautifully.

Thank you Rachel!

Well, the nut & saddle have been done and it makes one hell of a difference. Crisper and more defined, but also much easier to play and feels like a whole new instrument. I love it even more!

Anyone in the Bristol/Sounth Wales area, I can HIGHLY recommend Edge Guitar Services for your tech work. Eltham is brilliant at what he does and a very nice guy too.
