Got one of these on a similar deal last time. Much better than Rogue but nowhere close to my Yamaha FGX700SC which admittedly is double the price. The main difference is the neck depth and the sound. The lower depth on the Lag causes some wrist fatigue but not on the Yamaha. The sound on the Lag is much more crisp than the Yamaha. I like warm more than crisp but that is an individual preference. The pickups are wonderful on the Lag. I connected to my line6 preamp and it actually feels faster on my amp than my Yamaha.

I was just going to ask how this compares to the FGX800C so can I safely assume that the 700 and 800 are about the same? Not sure if the pick ups are similar.

About the same. Make no mistake the LAG is a good guitar to abuse. You beat it up when practicing and then deliver on the Yamaha.

I have a daughter turning 9 in less than a month.
She sings, loves music on some sort of DNA level, and wants her first guitar for her birthday this year.

I was considering the $125 one (don't love the sunburst look) but I'm not sure if that is overkill or if it's actually a bad purchase at this beginning stage for her.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, by anyone that would be knowledgeable with guitars.

I'm not an expert but I think a nylon stringed guitar would be better. Those metal strings hurt at first specially with delicate hands/fingers. My kids grew up with a Hohner which was highly recommended by their instructor.

You also might consider a 3/4 sized guitar, contingent on your daughters size ofc. Has she held or played a full size acoustic guitar yet? The thick body and long neck can make it uncomfortable for a shorter reach. I Also think Nylon strings are a good idea! Is it possible to take her to guitar center or some music store where she can try a few and see what she likes best? Might be the easiest way to discern what size/string type she prefers.

In for a dreadnought. This one seems to be worth $200-300. You never know what you're going to get with most mass produced guitars so I opted for the 1 year 360 vip membership to get the 2 day shipping and extra return grace period.

I got the cutaway with electronics last time around and I absolutely love it! I think the sunburst looks awesome, but I realize style is subjective. These guitars have a flat finish on them, which I like, but some who are expecting a gloss finish may not like it. Also note that the solid dreadnought doesn't have electronics while the cutaway does. The cutaway also has a nice tuner in it. The string action on mine was great out of the box, it sounds good, and it compares very favorably to the $500 Carvin I had been using. I think both of these are incredible values, but would lean toward the cutaway for the increased value and flexibility of the built-in pre-amp and tuner.
