The NTX700 is what some people are calling a crossover classical guitar. Besides the electronic pickups, what makes a crossover classical guitar is the physical characteristics of the guitar. The NTX700 has a narrower and thinner neck. The nut width is 48mm compared to 52mm for a traditional classical guitar. Most steel strings have a nut width around 42mm, so 48mm is about in the middle of a classical and steel string. The neck is thinner measured from the fretboard to the back of the neck. The thinner neck can be provided thanks to the adjustable steel truss rod. The truss rod also allows for lower action since the neck can be slightly curved to accommodate the sweep of the string vibration.
As a comparison, I measured string spacing at the nut and bridge on the NTX700 and then on my traditional classical guitar. I am measuring the distance between the 1st and 6th strings. The NTX700 has a 37mm nut string spacing and a 52mm bridge string spacing. My traditional classical has a 42.5mm nut string spacing and a 56mm bridge string spacing.Read more ›
Very beautiful, smooth to play, came in perfect state and factory sealed. Everything was like I expected, if not better.
In addition, the sound of this guitar plugged in is amazing, the bass and treble control gives you the possibility to adjust the volume of the upper and lower strings, very clean sound, beautiful to hear. For those who like to play plugged all the time and in shows, it comes with a feedback reducer propper for its soundhole, a brand new battery is also included.
Nothing to complain, very satisfied with this acquisition. I very much recommend this guitar.
It also comes with a nice gig back by the way. An added bonus.
As a finger picker, I was looking for an affordable guitar with a little more room on the fretboard for my fat fingers. I tried a couple of dozen guitars at a local chain store, and when the sales guy handed me the NTX700 I thought, "not a chance". Twenty minutes later i walked through the door with it. While not very loud for finger picking, the beautiful sounding pickup system makes amping it a breeze, and recording with the pickup produces a very natural sound. But Nylon string just did not have enough bite, and round wound strings squeaked like mad, highlighting my poor technique.
The Thomastik strings changed everything. See my review at: https://www.amazon.com/Thomastik-Infeld-KR116-Classical-Guitar-Strings/dp/B00162VU7I/ref=cm_rdp_product
The THR5A amp is an easy way to get a "studio" sound out of your acoustic guitar while sitting on your front porch. Fill it up with 8 rechargeable AA batteries and play for 8 hours. The amp works beautifully with the Yamaha pickup system to produce a natural sound with enrichment from the reverb, compression and chorus effects that is just a delight. A USB connection lets you record directly into your PC, and they even provide software (although I found it too complicated and use something else I had lying around).
So, what you really want to know is what they sound like. Amazon does not like links, but let's see if I can sneak one in.
