Thread Name: Best acoustic guitar under $1000?
Subject: RE: Best acoustic guitar under $1000?
K.Yairi quite simply are the finest quality guitars I have played and what they cost is incredible when you compare them to the big names. They are all hand built and are built with high quality timber which even goes for the laminates. Sold my Taylor and bought one of these and it is streets ahead in terms of what I look for in a guitar. For starters it is on of the most comfortable guitars to play. For recording the Taylor doesn't even register compared to the Yairi. My Taylor was all solid the Yairi has laminated back and sides but who cares it sounds amazing looks stunning and will do the lietime thing. All come with bone nut and saddle as standard and when you see how they alone are cut and shaped you'll realise that whoever built them seriously cares about what they are doing. I cannot recommend them highly enough and if they were built in the U.S. would probably be going for around 3 or 4 times what they cost. Don't buy a Taylor or a Martin cos you're paying for the name and sure some of their really pricey guitars are nice and all that but why pay so much it's just high street branding. Get a Yairi it will be the best decision you ever make on a guitar.
