The guitar's combination of premium tonewoods makes it a great value for seasoned players, but it's priced to be attainable for new players, as well. Its combination of a solid Sitka spruce top and nato back and sides is responsible for the FGX800C's beautiful voice. And Yamaha's System-66 electronics take that sound onto the stage. Let your guitar-playing journey start with an amazing instrument you'll love playing for years to come - the Yamaha FGX800C acoustic guitar.

Yamaha FGX800C Acoustic-Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Traditional Western Body
  • Solid Spruce Top
  • Nato/Okume Back & Sides
  • Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
  • Traditional looks and outstanding quality

Genuine Sitka spruce top for great tone

Yamaha chose a solid Sitka spruce top for their FGX800C for both its look and tone. Sitka spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops throughout the industry. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by. And Yamaha improved their scalloped bracing on the FGX800C to allow for more top movement, resulting in a larger low end and more projection.

Nato back and sides

The FGX800C sports a body made from nato. This wood's warm tone is reminiscent of mahogany, and it really impressed strummers at Music Experience. Its rich sound enhances the midrange frequencies while maintaining top-end clarity, making it great for strumming. The sound is gentle and full, which is ideal for vocal accompaniment. Combined with the lively and defined sound of the spruce top, you'll love the rich tone you get from the Yamaha FGX800C.

Yamaha System-66 electronics

The Yamaha FGX800C acoustic-electric guitar also has you covered when it's time to take the stage. The System-66 pickup and preamp electronics deliver the true sound of your guitar's spruce and nato tonewoods. The onboard preamp features a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids to help notch out unwanted feedback. It also boasts a fast and reliable tuner to keep your performances sounding great. And the battery compartment is easily accessed on the upper bout of the guitar for quick changes.

Yamaha FG: the best-selling acoustic guitar series in the world

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.

What Yamaha Says...

When it was introduced in 1966, the Yamaha FG proved that a great acoustic guitar didn’t need to cost a fortune. With a focus on great playability, musical tone and outstanding build quality, the original FG180 quickly became a classic with countless careers and hit records starting life on an FG. 50 years since the introduction of the FG acoustics, the new range features the best-ever FG tone and the same great playability and class-leading quality that’s made it the choice of millions of guitarists. Wherever your musical journey’s going, it all starts here. The first choice in experiencing acoustic-electric music. Derived from FG800 which has the solid spruce top and nato/okume back and sides, FGX800C has a cutaway body and the electric system.
