Overall: I bought the Yamaha FG 820 about a week or so ago and this is the absolute best sounding most beautiful guitar in the world that i feel cannot be surpassed by any other. The action is incredibly smooth and easy to play and the set up right out of the box was phenominal. I wished i could have gotten a hold on one of these guitars a long time ago it is just amazing. The spund and action are every bit as good as all the high dollar guitars if not better and you just cannot go wrong.

Overall: The older you get and the longer you play you come to realize that it's your skills and not that of gear that really matters,i.e Hendrix would have been Hendrix on a Wal-Mart Starcaster, is it nice to have a higher quality instrument? Of course is it necessary? No.This guitar will "get the job done", especially in a recording situation. This guitar is a "bare bones" no frills instrument for working players,once you "make it" go out and buy a 4k Martin or Gibson until then keep it real and work on your technique. I'm not really sure what players get in terms of value when they spend thousands on an instrument a 3k guitar does not sound 15x better than a $250.00 guitar. Some adjustment would be advised on this Yamaha, file down the nut or replace all together, the tuners could be better and the strings meh but this is a fine, professional quality instrument and I highly recommend it.

Overall: Bought the Yamaha FG820 Sunset Blue edition and boy this guitar looks and sounds great. For the price this cannot be beat. The action was nice out of the box and replaced the stock strings with Elixirs. Sound is fairly bright and crisp, and sustain lasts. Tone I consider subjective, and this solid top guitar sounds just as good as ones I have tried out pricing in the $800 and over range. Well done Yamaha.

Overall: I got mine from zZounds last week. great service and superfast. The FedEx is knocking on my front door with my guitar as soon as I hung up my phone. I will simplify this like Algebra. Here is my opinion when I compared it to my other acoustic guitars: 1)It has the boom-punch, warmth and elegance Gibsons. 2)" " " clarity, crispness and sustain of Martins. 3)" " " clarity, loudness and brightness of the Taylors. Although Ibanez AW40 has more sustain, and is my 2nd best choice for the money/budget. Maybe it is because of the scalloped-bracing features that makes it sound different. I think, guitars dont have to be expensive to sound great. If this Yamaha model does not have the qualities you're looking for in a guitar, then you dont need it.
