Hi OdinMann, welcome to the forum. Nice to see another guitarist from Ukraine visiting us :)

This is a very unusual looking FX720. Have never seen one with those inlays on the fretboard or with the Chromatic tuner built in. It looks more like the FX370 although again I have never seen one of those with the inlays on the fretboard. Of course Yamaha do make different guitars for different markets so could be this one is particular to Ukraine

Hi OdinMann, Welcome to the Yamaha Forums. :D

You're right about the tiny amount of info available. :?

Here's another one, but not nearly as fancy as the one you found. :idea: http://www.clickbd.com/bangladesh/14184 ... -sell.html :idea:

Are you planning to buy this one ? https://www.olx.ua/obyavlenie/gitara-ya ... q3Lvu.html :?: IT LOOKS GOOD :!:

Best Regards

Not sure where it would have come from then. Can you ask the seller for more info?

I think, if I have the currency conversion correct he/she is asking for 5500 Hryvnia? So that would be around £160 in the UK. I guess it's reasonable price as long as the frets are in good condition and there are just the normal surface scratches you would expect to find on a used guitar.

Of course the real issue is, unless you live close to the seller you won't be able to check it out before you buy it. Get the seller to take photos looking straight down the neck so you can get an idea if the frets are ok and if the neck is not warped etc.
