Jake Bugg gear guide - his favourite acoustic guitar
Get The Scoop On Jake Bugg's Yamaha GearBy Hugh McKenna
We've always loved the warm, rounded tone of Yamaha's FG700MS but it's still nice to have a little bit of celebrity endorsement to really let you know you've picked a great guitar. The so-called 'East Midlands Bob Dylan’, Jake Bugg, told Music Radar "My Yamaha guitar, it was only 150 quid, but it sounds great 'cos I've played it for quite a few years now and the wood's just mellowed out. Price don't always matter [...] it's whatever sounds good."

Given the Dylan comparisons (earnest lyrics and raw style? Check!), it's not a big surprise to find Jake has an electric side to him too. 'Taste It' conjures up a bit of the early British blues explosion with some licks that wouldn't be out of place on early Stones or Yardbirds records.
When he performed in Radio 1's Live Lounge recently though, he kept it all acoustic, with his trusty Yamaha guitar on display in this performance of 2013 single "Seen It All".
