A medium jumbo acoustic guitar with a wide dynamic range and onboard electronics.
The Yamaha FJX730SC Solid Spruce Top Rosewood Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a medium jumbo body with an A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) 1-way pickup system (System56) that faithfully reproduces the dynamic sound produced by its medium jumbo body. Onboard electronics include a chromatic auto tuner and 3-band equalizer. This medium jumbo-bodied Yamaha acoustic guitar delivers a sound with well-defined bass, wide dynamic range, and excellent response. The Yamaha FJX730SC features non-scalloped X-bracing and a reverse L-block neck attachment.
A.R.T. technology uses unique multilayer structuring and achieves optimum dynamic balance. Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars have consistently used piezoelectric pickups to reproduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezoelectric pickups tended to overreact to changes in attack, which, in turn, caused distortion. To achieve ideal playability, Yamaha improved the way the dynamics were controlled on the FJX730SC acoustic electric.
The guitar pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials. This dampens excessive vibration from the top board while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath the top board, it functions as a transducer attached to the guitar body. In addition to two main pickups mounted under the saddle, this system has one each on the bass and treble sides to capture the vibrations of the entire length of the strings and body, as well as the sound's bass and treble components. The Yamaha guitar's pickups are laid out in such a way as to achieve clear reproduction even during high-position soloing.
The A.R.T. preamp system's 1-way configuration features one main pickup system consisting of two pickups underneath the saddle. The 3-band equalizer gives the ability to control the mid-range for versatile sound creation. The system is also equipped with an onboard tuner. The body's non-scallop, X-type bracing design delivers deep lows full of presence that are unique to the Yamaha sound, and a clear upper end, making a clear and tight response. The Yamaha FJX730SC's head design includes real mother-of-pearl inlay on the headstock and adds a touch of class not found often in this price range.
Yamaha's original L-block neck design offers faster transfer of string vibration to the acoustic electric guitar's body for greater depth and tone while enhancing stability around the neck joint. The large bridge offers greater transfer of string vibration to the body producing a tight and clear mid-range with full, balanced tone. Smooth lines and edges keep the playing surface unencumbered.

Comments about Yamaha FJX730SC Solid Spruce Top Rosewood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
The FJX730SC is a great affordable guitar that plays easily and has a beautiful overall tone! I own two other guitars that are much more expensive and this Yamaha is my go to guitar now. It is a joy to play, the sound is rich but so even that the midrange holds its own and for a live show and recording, it is so easy to EQ. I highly recommend this guitar for anyone looking for a great sounding guitar for under $1000. It is beautiful to look at with many great details. It's a small Jumbo, so it is lighter than a Dreadnought but is slightly deeper to give it the rich bottom end. Overall, I was thrilled with this purchase and like I've said, there are days I can't put it down!!
