  • Yamaha fg-330

    Anybody know what an FG-330's worth? My neighbor has on for $105. Doesn't sound bad. I think it would make a nice camping guitar. I haven't been able to find much about them on the web are they a red headed step child?

    Based on the above it sounds like another cheap, laminate folk guitar that sounds far better than it should. I am not personally familiar with that particular model, but I have loved the other Yamaha FGs that I have played.
    I would guess that $105.00 would be a good price so long as the neck isn't in need of a reset and the truss rod still works. If you do get it, throw in a bone saddle and try some brass bridge pins.

    Let us know how it goes.

        Thanx guys

        I think I'll get it. I've got one other Yamaha FG160 that sounds beautiful but the action's a little high. The 330 has good action but doesn't sound quite as clear as the 160. imho. But the price is right, so i'll have another beater.

          Throw a new set of strings on it. You can also experiment with a bone saddle to improve the tone.
