different binding, different rosette, different body wood.
the different finish is optional.

not worth the money. there are several other guitars out there with much more bang for you buck. see the first post in this thread for examples

The main difference is nato back and sides vs. rosewood back and sides. Different woods = different sounds soooooo make sure u know what kind of sound u want. But for $200, thats more of the FG700s price range.. its still a great guitar tho!


edit: I've taken the Alvarez RD8 off the list because the RD20s is the same price but comes w/ a solid top.

just a note on the alvarez's

the regent series are made in china. they sound ok, but the build quality can be somewhat lacking.

the artist series and up are made in korea, and are a huge step in quality. i would highly recommend an artist over a regent. it might bump you up to about $400 though.

i am a huge alvarez fan, but i recently have been playing the godin arts and luthiers guitars, and they might have the alvarez beat. great sounding guitars, and very inexpensive.

I went to a few guitar stores, and tried some out.

Was hoping test a alvarez and the listed yamaha models but i didnt run into any.
I like the Art & Lutherie Wild Cherry alot, over the Art & Lutherie Cedar.
http://www.artandlutherieguitars.com/models.htm

But im a complete beginner, i think im gonna try a few more and then perhaps settle on the Wild Cherry ($240).

Question: the Cedar is a solid top, and the Wild Cherry isnt a solid top? meaning, i can be more careless with the Wild Cherry?

yeah you can be more careless with it but it isn't going to sound as good and it won't ever sound any better than it does right now...... not to mention i prefer the tonal qualities of cedar WAY above cherry

everybody in here is going to give you a various array of opinions regarding which one of these guitars is the best for the buck. you really need to go and play at least a couple before you go buying anything. why can't you play any of these models? these are all VERY common models by VERY common manufacturers.

Yea, I have a takmine and the action is really screwy. I've had to adjust it 2 times now. Got 11's on it and its still too high. I've lowered it significantly and I don't think it could go too much farther without some fret noise. My opinion, go with the Yamaha. They do make some awesome guitars.

Yup!

The FG700s has a much better coating on it.. coating = protection from scratches and stuff on the actual wood. The FG700ms does not have the coating and therefor is MUCH MUCH easier to scratch and ding up.

I highly recommed you get the FG700s and not the FG700ms. Its a couple bucks more but its definately worth getting the high quality finish instead of no finish :p
