""Affordable Rosewood Body.""
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Okay, I don't have to say "I bought this from zZounds" coz they will not allow me to write this review if the FG830 I have is not from them. So, I don't have to say it.
Off course fast delivery. It was so fast, the guitar delivered to my house right before
I hung up with zZounds. 'Nuff said.
I opened the box, my eyes went cross and hypnotized coz of the outstanding beautiful look of the FG830. I fell in love with the 1st strum. I kept playing for an hour, I even forgot to tune it. That is how good it zZounds.
Very bright, easy to play. Sustain is incredibly long and maintains its tone. I would say... it is just as loud and bright as the other $1,000 - $3,000 acoustic guitars. But the FG830's "highs and lows" stand out. It has a very wide range of EQs. I have Martins, Gibs and Taylor. This model can line up them.
it has a beautiful bass punch. Tone is energetic. Well built and designed. It has very nice white binding finish on the side. The abalone on the soundhole is just elegant and a sign of upgrades. Action is perfect OOTBox.
I believe that the combo of Rosewood body and scaloped bracing make this model sounds like those expensive over-priced guitars.
ACOUSTIC SOUNDS DO NOT NEED TO BE EXPENSIVE TO SOUND GREAT!
Eventhough some Yamahas are not made in America -their qualities are superb and matched or better than the top leading luthiers from Japan, USA, Germany, Philippines, Mexico, Brazil etc. - they are made for Americans.
What I notice so far, the one thing missing and you can't find on this model is bad quality.
20+yrs, some bands, gigs, hobby
