I was a person who had just finished school; and I had definitely needed to learn something. I had thus decided to buy a Guitar. I bought the Yamaha acoustic F310 for a reasonable whole Argos price of £100, I chose this one because it was rated as a very good beginner guitar. The rating I had recieved on my computer on a page called top 5 begginer acoustics. F3100 is number 2.

I would be 18 years and before I buyed the F310 I would have never held a guitar before in my life so I did not have an absolute idea how to play it. It was thus by practicing and experimenting for many hours on the Guitar every day and playing along with each other guitar instrument, the best that I could; By doing this it were thus sought that I would beome a good guitarist and musician. To put the review of this particular guitar more simply and basically I will tell you that to begin with I was fingering it in a terribly fixed way but today I am fingering it very loosely, it is however a trick roofs great quality guitar to be playing. I have spent a few different months studying and going from only a guitar chords and songs book to complete online guitar lessons and then I started outside testing, and I always turned over my F310 to be sounding fantastic. I am always testing on tuning the strings of the F310 to EADGBE. This tuning is carried out by a sheet of automatic tu-gbs which turns on red and green lights. A pleasant and simple thing to use.

If you do decide to buy the F3100 it will appear to you like an extra Yamaha of chases of silver characters on the top. At Argos the F310 comes in a package composed of:

1. Yamaha Guitar bag formed of beautiful black closing and openings. 9/10
2. A small rag to be used for polishing up the guitars wood. It is an excellent rag. 10/10
3. Small book of songs by coldplay, the vines, travis, U2, linkin park, stereophonics, muse, the beatles and more. You can become skillful by playing the songs. 8/10
4. There is a CD of the book but the singing is very unpleasant. The person talks to you on the CD very upleasantly. 7/10
5. A very useful and pleasant guitar stand to stand the F310 on (comes free) 10/10
6. There are 6 extra strings included with the F310. 9/10

note : Some things you need for playing guitar are not included in the package. You will need to buy guitar picks, guitar tuner, guitar strap.

The Yamaha F310 Guitar itself looks to my eyes to be very well made. It is formed of very pleasant high quality wood and it has an upper surface of spruce, and the back, neck and sides are formed of Mahogany. When you approach the top there is a fine panel of brilliant machine heads. I will repeat the extremely beautiful leaf that holds itself perfectly on the top.

It is truly an instrument to be fingered in a very careful and musical way. IIt would make a top gift. The neck is a terrific size and there is a number of 20 frets aswell. It is a real guitar to really see in a quick flash but to hear for 50 years or more. That is the important thing. The strings are made of Yamahas bronze and they appear very luminous stings which are to be pressed down very easily with your fingers, however its still in an outside balanced sound that I don't have to press hard to recieve a loud volume. The body of the F310 seems to be rather luminous. It is however still in the presence of your very skillful hands. The strings ring out very rich to your ears that lasts for a time you would wish. I am a first beginner so I would not be certain if that is the top sound a string can make.

It is thus 4 matured fingers of mine which have grown to support the strings very well, (at least these fingers were not formed like that before I started playing ). I hope this review will satisfy you in a rather intelligent way as I believe it is a total very well written review. I could not have done an especially more helpful review because of my secret acquisition. (which is being autistic). That is a terrible incapacity but I do not wish to talk of it. What I could do elsewhere as a beginner will not come around as I would not have noone to teach me the guitar but what is fundamental, is to be playing a Guitar of great quality and to ask a different guitarist to give me a small lesson. Now, if I can just say that I recommend the F310 as it represents the perfect guitar for a beginner. A beginner could not ask for a better acoustic guitar as the thing is very high quality and very cheaply priced.

I will have to say in secret a terrible grasses of not long ago that my sister was to come in my room to try and smash my guitar for no reason. It was very unfair to me and my instrument that my F310 had been slightly wounded on the side edge and the string had snapped completely. With great luck I have since got my uncle to repair the side edge.
