Refurbished Yamaha EG-112

Yamaha EG-112 electric guitar picture“After purchasing this guitar, I was warned to never buy a used guitar online, so I was pretty apprehensive in waiting for it to come. When it got here, it didn’t seem that bad. I’m sorry for PH_7 who never got a cable. But mine came with a 9 foot cable, a set of allen keys and the Tremolo arm, which you screw onto the guitar. Although I was a little dissapointed in the guitar’s body condition. By refurbished, I guess it means that they replaced certain parts. But my guitar had scratches on the frount, one of the pickup is rusty and the strings are a little old. But hey, it is a used guitar.

All in all, I’m pretty satisfied. I think it’s a good guitar for a beginner who doesn’t need a $700 fender to start on.”, its not bad, leung

“I bought my refurbished Yamaha from a different website. When I placed my order, I thought I was getting a brand new guitar. I paid $40 more than Amazon charged because I thought I was getting something brand new. A few days later I checked the website and saw a refurbished notation had been added to the description. Needless to say, I was very apprehensive about what might arrive.

The guitar arrived with a huge REFURBISHED sticker on the box. Sigh. But when I opened the box and took the guitar out of the case I couldn’t believe my eyes.

The guitar was beautiful but not an EG-112. What I received was an EG-112C2 with a black metal flake body, black pick guard, and black headstock. What a surprise! And, yes, I did recieve all accessories.

If the guitar hadn’t been all black and so cool looking, I would have returned it and bought one from Amazon for a $40 savings. I think I just lucked out in getting that model. Or they may have sent me this one because I called to complain about the change in the description… Who knows?

The biggest problem I had was with the strings. The strings it came with were only so so. When I was in the process of restringing it with D’Addario strings, I couldn’t get two of the original strings off the guitar. The bottoms of the strings were really jammed in there. I took the guitar to a local music shop and had to have a bit of work done on it to get the strings out. It took two men to figure out how to remove them without damaging the the guitar.

I could only find a few very minor dings and scratches on the body. No big deal. You’d really have to be looking for them in direct light to see them.

After getting the string problem resolved I found that the guitar sounds and feels great. With new strings and a couple effects pedals, the sound I get from this guitar is outstanding.

In the end…I’m very happy with my Yamaha guitar. Even if there are minor problems that need repaired, you cannot beat the price for an HSS guitar of this quality.”, i am very happy with this guitar, gaudy

“Ordered mine a few days before Xmas with free shipping and received it on the 23rd, bravo Amazon! Unfortunatly I did not receive my Rogue 2×12″ 100w $150 amp from MusiciansFriend.com until yesterday. The guitar looks brand new and came with everything it was supposed to come with. One of the pickups has a small amount of rust but it is barely noticable. All and all it was a great price for what I was looking for and I didn’t have to spend extra money on the small amp I didn’t need. Instead I got a much bigger amp for almost the same price as the kit!”, great for me, smith

“If your wanting a guitar to start with, GO FOR IT, but if you are advanced get something better with a BIGGER AMP, because the one it comes with is a little small, although your talking to a guy that likes his stuff SUPER LOAD, and also Yamaha makes GREAT gutiars so i would go with them,”, Great Starter, Single Man Band

“I saw this package at costco also, and I had to choose between the squier and this guitar. I’m glad I got this one because from what I’ve read the pickups are better, and the guitar is better overall. It comes with a small amp, which works perfect for me, because i’m not trying to get a big loud sound. I just want to be able to hear what I’m playing. And when you turn it up load you get some crackling, so it’s perfect for mid volume playing. Of course I cant afford a jazzmaster which I would like, so this is great for the price.”, a nice guitar, C. Draney

“If you are just going to start to learn to play guitar, then this is the dream guitar for you, also comes with amp. This guitar’s sound quality and durability is really good, i was suprised, it is not the absolute best, but it is really good for starters or someone who wants a guitar but doesn’t want to go to far with it.”, awesome and cheap, Troy

Const:

“Don’t buy this guitar/amp. You can get a fender for no more than $…they work really well and It will last you a long time wereas this yamaha will only give you limited satisfsaction. So if you’re willing to spend only [this much] on a better guitar and a little more money on a MUCH better amp don’t buy this set.”, there are better there, an electronic fans

The guitar sounded find but they made almost no atempt to fix big paint chips in the finish. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! This was a restored guitar? I think they forgot to restore this one!”, big chip to big frowns, vadeboncouer

Pros:

“This is the greatest deal ever, you get everything with this. This is a very excellent product for beginners who want to learn on something that they are going to keep for a while. It comes with excellect products, the amp is nice to carry along to because its not to big. The electric tuner comes in handy for beginners who will have trouble tuning their guitar which can get you very frusturated.The book is nice but it doesnt go into much detail. I highly recomend this product.”, the best deal you can find anywhere, an electronics fan

“I’ve had this guitar for over a year and it has served me well, except for the input jack plate(plastic) which easily broke off after setting it down on a hardwood floor. I highly recommend the first mod you make to this guitar, if you want to call it that, is to replace the factory input jack plate(note, just the plastic outside plate, but you can replace the jack itself if desired) so that you won’t have the same problem as me, I find myself soldering the wires to the input jack just because I didn’t do this before I snapped the wiring. Getting back to the review, the guitar is awesome, very solid and comparable to a stratocaster. This EG112 Yamaha guitar blows the Fender SQUIRE out of the water, with much faster action, and two screamin pickups, one being a humbucker which you can easily switch between to get that echoes jimmy page sound or crunchy jimi hendrix sound. Granted, you will need pedals to assist you and perhaps a decent amp. But actually I like this amp, it makes a GREAT PRACTICE AMP, but will not get any louder than your average hardheaded drummer. It gets decent distortion, and does the trick for practicing and showing your friends a cool new riff. The only trouble I had with mine was a blown fuse, which was an easy 5 minute fix, it’s a little smaller than a car fuse so you might have to go to osh to find one or rummage through your garage, like I did. But overall, this guitar should last you as long as you want it to. I don’t take very good care of mine, and it’s still in perfect working order after a year and a half of abuse, knock on wood. In order to keep the neck straight, buy a guitar stand for 15$, this is a must, don’t lean it against your wall. Most importantly, have fun, and I’ve gotten nothing but praise for this 200$ gem from all kinds of guitar players, I paid 100$ with the amp open box so go figure). My best advise is to play it at the store and see what you think. “, Yahama is solid, joe
