This Specific Guitar provides exceptional sound,performance and reliability and it would be ideal for any guitar player

American Elite Stratocaster®, Rosewood Fingerboard, Autumn Blaze Metallic
Externally the American Elite Stratocaster has Fender’s timeless style, but under the hood it’s an entirely new breed of guitar designed for 21st-century players who constantly push the envelope. With over a dozen new innovations, each guitar is a true performer with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play.

Featured on all American Elite instruments, the new fourth generation Noiseless pickups are only available in this series, and represent a quantum leap in pickup design. Combining vintage-style sound with effectively noise-free performance, these are the pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, offering pristine cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. New locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the synthetic bone nut for buzz-free performance while the smooth two-point modern tremolo adds emotive touches to your performance without sacrificing your tuning.

Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this guitar is no different—from the redesigned sleek back and forearm contours that hug the player’s body for an enhanced playing experience to the black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers this instrument will dazzle the audience with elegant style. The American Elite Stratocaster is a bold new guitar for the brave new guitarist who is setting out to cross uncharted musical terrain. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.

Yamaha YDP-163 Arius Digital Piano Black Walnut Bundle

There is a good selection of sounds on this keyboard, the piano sounds are among the most realistic I've heard, it's challenging to hear any difference between the three piano sounds though.

I only bought it as a piano so this is fine, I've no real need to vary this other than out of interest. The demos and piano repertoire pieces are enjoyable and show off the piano sound well.

It seems very sturdy, with a support beneath the pedals to reduce the stress on what is a long span between the legs, the pedals feel firm and robust (if a little too firm), it 'also too early to say how robust it is as I've only had it for one week. Having said that the connections look robust and the quality of materials felt solid enough. It's certainly, at this stage, a nice liking piece of furniture. The keyboard cover was out of alignment on receipt and I thought that it wasn't going to work, a little patience and gentle persuasion and it freed up and now runs as smoothly as you like, concerning initially though. Keys fell realistic (for a digital keyboard) again though adjusting this through the three setting makes no perceptible difference in my opinion. Again, do I need this?

overall I'm delighted with it so far.

Yamaha YDP-163 Arius Digital Piano Black Walnut Bundle

I wanted to get back to playing the piano which I had done as a child, some 50 odd years ago, but did not have the room for an upright piano, nor did I want the problem of having to keep having it tuned. I looked to the digital piano as an alternative, and I can honestly say I have not been disappointed with my choice of the Yamaha. The quality of the build is
very good with the added advantage of it being easier to move than an upright. Although, I am no concert pianist, I feel the piano sound is as good as any piano I have played and again with the advantage to easily change the sound when required. My grandsons also love it and play it when ever they visit, they are now keen to learn to play piano.

Easy to assemble, looks great. Lovely feel to keys and simple instructions on features. To be fair, I'm a novice but it seems perfect for our needs.

Yamaha YDP-163 Arius Digital Piano Black Walnut Bundle

Absolutely love my new Yamaha YDP-163B. It's everything the product claims to be. It's a beautiful design. The feel of the keyboard is stunning. It came in a flatpack box. Very easy to assemble. All you need is one screw-driver and its assembled in no time.

All of the feature are wonderful 50 classic tunes to play along with or nice to have as background for guests. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment and hard work.

Would recommend this to pianists of all levels.
