There's even more to love about this newest installment in the Yamaha FG series, the Yamaha FG800 acoustic guitar. Back is the comfortable dreadnought body style and solid spruce top that players loved in the FG700. But new scalloped bracing gives this acoustic an even bigger low end and better projection for live and recording applications. Body back and sides made from nato wood (eastern mahogany) and okume give the FG800 its warm tone and professional looks, while the satin-finished slim neck with rounded fret edges give it comfortable playability.
The entry-level Yamaha FG700 rocked the guitar-building world with its craftsmanship and smart use of tonewoods. The FG800 takes this design several steps further with scalloped bracing for a punchier tone and better stage projection, and a slimmer, more comfortable tapered neck with gently rounded fingerboard edges. Music Experience acoustic players have been fans of the Yamaha FG series for years, and for the price, consider it one of the better values on the market.
New scalloped bracing makes the FG800 even fatter and louder. This gives the solid spruce top - a feature normally reserved for professional instruments - an expressive dynamic range for punchy chords, sweet-sounding leads, and lively riffing.
It's not hard to see why Yamaha's FG series is a world best seller: the comfortable dreadnought bodies, professional-grade tonewoods, and fast-playing necks make these acoustics great first instruments for beginners, and solid seconds for seasoned players who need an extra acoustic for the stage or to play around the house.
Solid tone and playability for all levels: the Yamaha FG800 acoustic guitar!
