Yamaha acoustic guitars range from beginners level all the way up to guitars that the best of the best would love to play. I've had my hands on more Yamaha guitars than I'll ever remember, and I would recommend the brand to anyone. Here's some details about the three main lines of Yamaha acoustic guitars.

Now, it blows the mind, but often we'd find these guitars for very little money. Yamaha makes wonderful beginner, intermediate, and even professional grade acoustic guitars. Of course everyone will forever be on the lookout for that Martin or Gibson acoustic guitar that they paid less than a hundred dollars for. Those guitars are out there, but they are hard to find, being sold by either desperate, or uninformed persons that either don't understand their value, or stole those guitars and want some cash for them, and to forget about it. I don't advocate buying anything from a theif, I advocate turning them in if they steal guitars - someone steals one of mine and everything they own is in jeopardy.
Yamaha Acoustic Guitars - A Superior Bargain!

The F Series Acoustic Guitars by Yamaha: The F series guitars are made from laminated woods, these are the least expensive type of steel string guitars by any manufacturer - as the materials are cheap. These guitars are ideal for students. I'd actually like to own one to carry around with me, or take camping, hiking, or travelling. There's no need to own or purchase a more expensive acoustic guitar until one is certain that they are interested in music enough that they will be spending and dedicating time to that.
The FG Series Acoustic Guitars by Yamaha: The FG series of guitar are what I'd call intermediate level guitars. The first major upgrade from an all laminate guitar is a guitar with a solid top or soundboard, and usually the soundboard will be spruce. The back and sides of these guitars will still be laminate woods - the solid top provides a louder and clearer and sweeter tone. These are great guitars - and only very serious or otherwise financially able persons will want or need the next level up of Yamaha's Acoustic Guitars.
The L Series Acoustic Guitars by Yamaha: These are the high end, all solid wood construction guitars that are bound to be acoustic guitars that will last a lifetime. These guitars are good enough to last several lifetimes when cared for properly, and will play and sound as good or better than anyone else's guitars. These are keepers, and these are bargains. It's just a plain fact that you can land one of these guitars used for way less than you can a comparable guitar by Martin, Gibson, Taylor - or any other American or Canadian guitar manufacturer. Sure, your friends who own a Martin will always think their guitar is better than yours if you own one of these - sometimes the joke will be on them, and especially after they play your Yamaha L Series guitar, and find out what you paid for it!
