Outstanding Quality and Value
This instrument features outstanding sound quality, smooth playability, and the craftsmanship you expect from a genuine Yamaha instrument. The FG800 includes deluxe features such as scalloped X bracing, die-cast tuners, a solid spruce top, and walnut fingerboard and bridge. Abalone inlays and a high-gloss finish make this guitar look as good as it sounds.
The new FGs have louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Yamaha’s engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork.This analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.
Yamaha Quality and Craftsmanship
The heritage of Yamaha folk guitars begin with the FG series. Yamaha's FG series stretches back into the mid 60's on the heels of the folk guitar movement in the United States. Moving into the 1970's, many notable artists were seen playing Yamaha acoustic guitars... Jimmy Page, Paul Simon, James Taylor, and Bruce Springsteen to name a few. Yamaha's FG series is the #1 selling acoustic guitars of all time. FG guitars are known for quality, dependability, playability and value.
