Updated on February 14, 2011

The Yamaha F310 is among Yamaha's bestselling acoustic guitars. It offers great quality at an extremely reasonable price, making it an excellent choice for those who are new to the guitar. Unlike a lot beginner instruments however, many people like the F310 so much that they’re in no hurry to upgrade once they gain some experience.

Let's take a look at the Yamaha F310 acoustic in more detail.

Features of the Yamaha F 310 Acoustic Guitar

  • The Yamaha F 310 has a large dreadnought-style body, which gives it a loud resonant tone. This makes it a great choice of singer songwriters and others who want their guitar to be heard.
  • It is also made from good quality woods, including a spruce top, Indonesian mahogany back and sides, and a Javanese rosewood fretboard. The top has a pleasant natural finish, and the overall styling of the guitar is classic and understated.
  • The F310 has 20 frets, and the fingerboard is slightly narrower than average, which will make it especially easy to play for those with smaller hands.
  • The hardware is made from chrome.
  • The pick guard is made from hard wearing black PVC.

Overall, this is a very versatile and good quality acoustic guitar, which is suited to playing rock, pop, folk and other musical styles. It has gained overwhelmingly positive reviews from users all over the net, who have been impressed by its great tone, playability, durable build and superb value price.

Where To Buy The Yamaha F310 Acoustic Guitar

If you live in the UK, you’ll find that the Yamaha F310 is widely available (in fact, it is the bestselling Yamaha acoustic guitar in the UK). You can find it on Amazon's UK site as a complete package aimed at beginner guitarists - the Yamaha F310 acoustic guitar pack contains a strap, a Yamaha digital tuner, spare strings and the Yamaha ‘Instant Guitar’ instructional DVD, which will get you playing right away.

According to Yamaha's website, production of the F310 has been discontinued in the US, but fortunately it’s still available from sites such as Amazon (see links above). There are normally a few going on eBay too, often at bargain prices.

      Just bought an old F-310, for very little cash! It sounds great with terrific sustain, and has a great slim neck. These can be excellent guitars - the 700 series are also very good.
