Hi Guys,

I currently have a basic Yamaha F310P. Its really basic and the sound is pretty good for beginner like me. However, recently, I met with my brother in Indonesia and he just bought the same model as me (Yamaha F310P).

However, I found that his guitar sounds much "softer" than mine hence it sounds really good on his guitar. Is it because of the quality of the wood or the string of the guitar itself? Or any other factor that could affect that?

Thanks.

First of all, no two guitars are built the same. Every guitar has its own slight nuance and bias. Second, he bought it in India? Humidity can have a great change on sound, and a humid climate can leave a guitar with a damp and somewhat rubbery sound (in my opinion). Thirdly, strings can change sound entirely. If you're looking for a softer sound, I recommend Silk & Steel strings.
Sincerely, Chad.

Hi Chad,

Thanks a lot. Well, I am not too sure about these strings. When I bought my Yamaha, the string already there and they gave me one new set as the backup. Do they (the string that I currently used and Silk & Steel strings) look different? Then, is this Silk & Steel strings standard to any brand of guitar? I mean, can this Silk & Steel strings be installed on Yamaha, Maestro or any other brand of guitar or should I ask for Yamaha Silk & Steel strings?

Thanks

Any steel string can be installed on a steel string guitar. You can buy from D'Addario, Martin, Ernie Ball, John Pearse, and countless others.

Silk and steel strings are silver in color. You can buy them as Martin brand or D'Addario brand (I'd recommend Martin brand for a first time installing them, since they're cheaper). If Yamaha gave you some strings with their name stamped on them, I can almost guarantee that they're actually plain, phosphor bronze D'Addario.

Keep us filled in.
Sincerely, Chad.
