"Can't go wrong with this one!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have wanted a 12-string for a while, but didn't want to spend a fortune on it. I saw this one on zZounds website and decided that if I didn't like it I could always return it. I received the guitar two days ago, and I will not be returning it. This guitar has the highest volume level of any of my acoustics. Sounds great, love the binding on the body and the neck, beautiful sound. I have played several other higher end 12 strings at the local big box guitar store, and I can't feel or hear a difference from the ones that cost 3 to 4 times more. This is my first Yamaha, and I will now have to take a lot more serious look at their other products. You can't go wrong with buying this guitar.

"Top marks for a well made guit"
Yamaha's quality shines through again. I own a few vintage FG's, and their attention to detail, playability and overall craftsmanship has not been lost through the years. The FG820-12 is bright and boomy, with no buzz and perfect intonation out of the box. Beginners may want to tune down and implement a capo or have a luthier lower the action a little. I also appreciate the lack of ability to 'plug in', as this is usually done with an under-saddle piezo pickup which in my opinion ruins sound transfer for the acoustic purists. For serious tone, an upgraded 'Brazilian bloodwood' nut and saddle with improve tenfold. 5 stars on most accounts for this little beauty. A real musical companion - on a fair budget - with the enticement of affordable upgrades to really compete with the big end of town.

I received this guitar yesterday 4/24/19. Beautiful glossy top,, low action. It sounds wonderful. Will not be sending this one back. zZounds 12 payment plan makes it easy to own. I'll buy another guitar from them on my next birthday! Thanks zZounds!!
