The Guitar I Was Looking For

After I retired from the world of work, I wanted to learn how to play guitar. My wife and I had taken guitar lessons 40 years ago. But when we started our family there were more pressing things to do - like changing diapers and earning a living.

Well, the kids are raised and I am retired from the working world, so I decided to take up the guitar again. I tried my youngest, adult-son's acoustic guitar and found that it was too big and bulky for me. Also, the strings were very hard to push into the neck of the guitar, and I had a hard time getting a clear tone, so I looked elsewhere for a guitar that would be easier to hold and play.

The Yamaha APX 500 acoustic guitar was recommended to me because it has a thinner frame, making it easier to hold, and the strings are closer to the neck of the guitar for easier string depression. I tried, then bought, the guitar and am very pleased with my decision.

The guitar won't play itself. Like anything new you still have to practice, but I have toughened my finger tips, have learned some chords, have gained some muscle memory in my fingers, and I am getting a lot of satisfaction and mental stimulus from playing this guitar. The guitar is beautiful, has a very nice tone, and has a built-in tuner that is easy to use. The guitar is not just for the beginner; my brother-in-law, who has played guitar for 45 years, loves this guitar.

When you retire, you need to keep your mind active. Believe me, learning a musical instrument keeps your mind active and provides for a great deal of personal satisfaction. I would recommend this musical instrument to anyone.

Would buy the same guitar again, no question.

Very nice guitar. Nice sound. Did not kept tuned with new strings right away but once they got their place, it is hardly ever not in tune anymore.
Guitar has a nice feel to it, easy to slide on the fretboard.
