This is one great guitar!

As a beginner, I cannot claim to know much about guitars, but I did do my research. Yamaha make great musical instruments and this guitar is recommended as a great beginner guitar by several places, including About. The package has everything you need to get started.

THE GOOD:
The guitar - One great instrument. The build feels solid and not at all cheap. The strings are close the the fret board which is great. The tuners are very smooth and feel good. The guitar also has 3 pickups and 5 positions which allow you to change up the sound of he guitar from rock to jazz. Basically, this is a really good guitar. And it has two nobs for volume and tone.
The Amplifier - This is a good beginner amplifier. It is small and has 15 watts. It has two channels: Clean and Dirty. Plenty nobs for us beginners to play with: gain, dirty volume, clean volume, treble, middle, bass. Also has a quarter inch headphone jack. Despite what majority might think, 15 watts is enough for just about anything you'll be doing. The 15 watts allows you to turn up the gain all the way up and keep the volume down and still have it sound good.
The electric tuner - a nice little add-on for beginners.
The DVD - great place as any to start. Goes over the basics and teaches several chords.
Other - comes with extra strings :)

THE BAD:
The guitar - none at all.
The Amp - the only bad thing with it (for what it is), is that the headphones jack is a 1/4 inch jack so most of us with 3.5mm standard headphone will either need to get new headphones or adapter to use it. But it is no big deal in my opinion.
The Guitar Cable - it is one cheap cable. Mine broke after 4 days.

Before I go further I should describe my guitar skills. I have been playing for 4-5 years (note: this first paragraph is an update, so this was my first guitar), self-taught, and consider myself pretty darn good.

I got mine for about the same price 4 or 5 years ago. Trust me- it's worth every penny. She hardly requires tuning, sounds great even with an amp that is made for a deaf man. She's also a beauty, and pictures don't do her justice. I play blues, rock, metal- this guitar is nearly as versatile as a Strat or a Les Paul. She's been through a lot of abuse and the wear doesn't show, so you know she can handle gigs. Great guitar for all levels of play, beginner to master shredder.
You won't regret your purchase.

Apparently, this is the lowest priced instrument in the line. Amazing. It is a very, very good instrument.

I bought mine used. It has replacement tuners, so this review doesn't address the tuners. Otherwise it is stock.

The neck feels terrific. A little narrower than the Fender Stratocaster and a slightly different shape. I have an American Std. Fender Stratocaster. I prefer the Yamaha neck. The Yamaha intonates as well as the Fender. The guitar is well built.

The Fender sounds better in the midrange, but a stock Fender can sound thin in the upper range. The Yamaha is also a bit thin up there (High E 12th fret and above), but it's thicker than the Fender.

The Fender sounds richer in the midrange when I compare the two side by side. Overall, the Fender is the better sounding guitar. But, the street price of the Fender is nearly 5 times higher.

So, it's not the best guitar in the world, but it is a terrific buy.

I would have no hesitation to gig with this guitar.

Great starter for beginner's, The 15 watt amp does a good job, The DVD is very informative. The only drawback is the cord, It is cheap and broke on me the second day, Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on a better quality cord. The guitar it self is top notch, Yamaha has maintained there craftsmanship with this guitar. All in all a great price for a starter.

I'm glad I paid $100 less than what it is now, but if you look up the guitar you will find out that it sells for that much alone.

I am a novice guitar player and enjoy this guitar. Properly set up it, the intonation is very good and I like the tones I get get from it. As an acoustic player to start, I was surprise by how sensitive the guitar was to my finger pressure. It is easy to play with a light touch especially compared to acoustic guitars. I did not like the tremolo bar and decided to take it off and lock the tuning down. It is easy enough to inflect the notes by bending on the fretboard, and how much whammy bar stuff do you really need to do for most songs? It holds tune well, plays well, and for the price it is a good deal. I like the way it looks and expect it will hold up a very long time. My only complaints are that it is a sort of heavy and before the tremolo bar was removed, I had a hard time keeping it in tune.

Follow up to my own review a year later: This was my first electric guitar. I have owned and played several other guitars now, and my regard for this guitar keeps growing. - That is, until I bought some custom hand wound pick-ups (Dawgtown) and put them in a MIM strat. Before then, I liked this guitar better than the MIM strat. Now, when I play this guitar I find it wanting. But then, we are talking $400 plus vs about $100-200. I was lucky to buy this guitar as my first. Pros - 24 frets, light body (not heavy like I said before - now I know better), good quality neck and tuners. Cons - pick-ups could be better; just 1 volume and 1 tone knob; tremolo not great.
