The Perfect Yamaha Acoustic Guitar for the Burgeoning Player!

Whether you're looking for a starter guitar or a backup to have on stage, the Yamaha FG800 Folk acoustic guitar is a great choice to consider. Part of Yamaha's long-running Folk Guitar "FG" series, this attractive acoustic features a solid spruce top with nato and okume back and sides, and a nato neck houses 20 frets spanning a smooth and inviting rosewood fingerboard. This is a great instrument for intimate performances, but it also projects a big sound when you get a little more aggressive. The FG800's dreadnought shape fits comfortably against your body and brings out a nice articulate projection perfect for just about any style or genre -- it's much more than simply a "Folk Guitar"!

Warm and Punchy Dreadnought Body

The dreadnought body shape is iconic in its name and contour. Aside from providing a comfortable feel and evoking roughly a century of cultural influence, it produces a resonance that can go from "purr" to "roar" in a simple strum. The FG800's solid spruce top generates a crisp, well-articulated projection, and the nato/okume back and sides will focus on the low and middle frequencies. The scalloped bracing inside the body gives your playing plenty of punch for a strictly acoustic instrument.

Comfy Nato Neck and Rosewood Fretboard

There's a reason Yamaha's FG series are so popular among burgeoning players, and once your fingers hit this acoustic axe's nato neck, you'll know why. This appendage features 20 frets with comfortable action over a silky rosewood fingerboard. Nato is sometimes referred to as "Eastern Mahogany" because it exhibits similar tonal qualities to mahogany -- pushing the lows and mids along with generating a nice helping of sustain.

A Great Companion Through and Through

Whether you're into a more intimate folk-inspired fingerpicking technique, or loud and more aggressive flatpicking, your Yamaha FG800 is ready to heed your call. From its attractive spruce top, stylish black binding and tasteful tortoise pickguard, to its smooth and comfortable nato neck, this axe is a great asset to have for practice -- or to use as a backup guitar if your main axe breaks a string in the middle of your set.

- Acoustic guitar in dreadnought body shape

Yamaha FG800 Folk Acoustic Guitar

A new FG has 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.

50 Years of History

The history of Yamaha's FG series started in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150. Over the 50 years since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG - all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players. In all, there have been over 200 FG models since 1966.

Made in Yamaha

Every aspect of an FG is crafted to make a better guitar. From painstakingly cured and dried woods to beautiful hand-sprayed finishes and detailed quality control checks each and every FG is made to be a lifelong partner.

Nato/Okume Back & Sides

Similar sound characteristics to mahogany -- warm sound and rich midrange

Features:

- Traditional Western Body
- Solid Spruce Top
- Nato/Okume Back & Sides
- Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
- Traditional looks and outstanding quality
