Not sure what to recommend for a beginner, I am a beginner myself.

My thinking was that Yamaha has good value products, and I wanted to specifically buy solid wood guitar for long haul (even if my interest goes south, I have a good product for resell or for keepsake Smilie). They will be pricier than solid-top only guitars though.

For a beginner, I'd say to stick with wood (no electric). Stick to one thing and focus. That's how to get good at guitar. Practice practice practice! Good price on this. Njoy learning. Music will change your life!

I've owned about 4 yamaha acoustics, this being one. Its a fine beginner guitar but once you hit that point you play a martin or a taylor you realize the yamaha lacks depth and dynamics. They can sound decent plugged in, but acoustically they are really lacking. Very shrill sounding guitars even with bone saddles installed. Even the HPL martins sound superior to an all solid wood yamaha, its not about the wood its about the construction and knowledge companies like martin and taylor infuse into their products...

so overall a decent product, but eventually if you stick with it you'll want to get something that sounds better.

I'm also a beginner. I bought a Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar last week with the help of my friend who happens to be a guitar teacher. He highly recommended a classical guitar as they have nylon strings instead of steel. He saw many students want to quit because the steel hurt their fingers too much or the guitar was too difficult to play (neck too wide causing hand cramps, etc.) I've played both steel and nylon strings now and he was right. He also advised not buying an electric/acoustic combo right away because I probably wouldn't use the electric, which would just be a waste of money. Instead, he recommended the C5 to see if I like it then move on to a more expensive combo if I stick with it. So far, seems like solid advice!

He also commented that he didn't think the Yamaha's had the greatest sound, but without hearing the instrument, it was hard to say. I hope this helps!

Only the top is solid wood on these. It's not an all solid wood guitar.
