New Guitar Blog w/pics...finally

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Hello all!

I think I have gotten my picture situation straightened out, so here goes the blog.

The guitar I am writing about is my present-to-self for 2 years of maintenance. All opinions are my own!

For the guitar techies out there, the model name is NCX1200R. Its' specs are standard classic w/cutaway, that is, 2 inch wide neck, connects at the 12th fret, standard depth--and it has on-board electronics. Yamaha calls it a nylon electric. Yamaha has some kind of new process where the wood is pre-aged, and it sounds fabulous!

Here is the guitar:

You can see the cutaway. It has a sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and mahogany neck. The neck has a truss rod, not found in a standard classic and certainly adding to the weight. But, the construction is stronger.

It came with a rather unusual case; the case has a fabric cover but is solid, and form fitting to the guitar.

Here are pictures of the battery opening and the on-board electronics. It also has a built in tuner.

A close-up of the cutaway.

A close-up of the sound hole decoration--quite modern looking!

And finally, i went and got a Peavey acoustic amp to go with it! Oh my goodness, me buying an amp...

Hope you enjoyed!

    WOW what a gorgeous guitar!! Course I'm a big Yamaha fan with my classical Yamaha...but this is SUCH an enhancement with the cutaway and electric capability!!

    I see some HIGHLY satisfied customers over @ Amazon:
    I'm betting you are going to have years & years of playing satisfaction with this guitar!

    I'll have to keep this in mind if I ever decide to take the upward leap! :-)

    Well, in the interest of fairness, I am rotating all three of my babies, one each day. If I can get my practicing up to 30 minutes a day (up to 24 now) I will maybe play two a day, 15 minutes each

    The GD-10 is still my go-to guitar...had him the longest.....but the new boy may just replace him.....

    Wow! This looks great. I love the idea of the truss rod, too. as it can be adjusted if the neck ever becomes warped. She is a beauty. So. now that you have her, are you totally addicted? My poor Taylors have been been neglected since I got my Cordoba flamenco. I love my Cordoba so much, I hardly ever pick up any of my guitars except for the one my father owned, a sweet folk guitar with essence-of-dad in every molecule of her.

    I am hoping for a video blog............
