Please note, the sides and back of a (lower end) Taylor 110 model guitar are ply (laminate or “layered”.) of Sapele (wood) with Poplar sandwiched in between. The Yamaha FD01S sides & back are Nato (or Mora) ply/laminate. I don’t know what’s inside the layers. Both Sapele and Nato look like Mahogany, but Nato is harder than both, and is reddish-brown in color. A guitar manufacturer can get 8 times as much usable material from a log when it’s used as laminate. The neck is Nato too. The head is glued on to the neck with a scarf joint. The fretboard & bridge are Rosewood. The width of the nut measures 1 11/16 The width of the lower bout measures 15 ¾”, depth = 4 5/8”, body length = 20”, fret scale = 25 ½”. The braces of the "X" brace are narrow and tall with a peaked crest (like the top of a gable roof house).
The saddle and nut on the Yamaha FD01S are made from a hard, white plastic that is somewhat brittle… you may want to replace them. The tuning machines are similar to Grover style, with enclosed backs. They're probably made by Shenzhen or Gotoh. The sound quality is much better than any laminate top guitar.
It sounds strong, but has an overall cheap feel to it, like it may break. It is uninspiring.
Out of the box the strings are a full 1/8" above the frets. Going to need some work before it is playable. Saddle adjustments are fairly easy on an electric, but it's a bit of a job on an acoustic.
Also, it arrived with a small dent in the top. Not a deal breaker, since I got a deep discount on this guitar.
I would definitely not pay full price for this instrument. It isn't worth it.
UPDATE: The low-E bridge pin is stuck in the bridge. I discovered this when I attempted to make the necessary saddle adjustments and change the strings. With gentle effort (I've done this numerous times on other guitars) the top of the bridge pin broke off. Unable to dislodge it from inside the sound hole. Amazon is sending a replacement.
UPDATE: I received my replacement today. It sounds ok, but the action is 12/64"! about double what it should be, and double what the "QC" tag stated. Be ready to spend more money on a setup, or spend all weekend working on it. Still, 2 stars.
UPDATE: I spent the time and energy to learn how to change saddle height myself. Folks, it wasn't nearly as hard as I imagined it would be as long as you have some sandpaper and a flat surface. Lowered the strings to where they need to be. Turns out it's not a bad player once properly setup. I'm throwing in another star.
UPDATE: I'm happy I took the time to get the guitar proper shape. The more I play it, the more I like it. Very bright tone, projects well, and plays nicely. 4 stars.
