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.

"Great for the Price!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
For the price, this guitar sounds as good as guitars in the $400 range. A very good value! If you need a cheap acoustic that is well built and sound very bright but also has some warmth to it, this is a great purchase. I recommend this to my guitar students when choosing a good guitar that won't break the bank.
