Product Description

Yamaha has developed scalloped bracing for the FG800 to deliver a stronger and louder sound in the low- to mid-ranges. Thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division, the FG800 excellent projection with a balanced tone. Yamaha’s engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork. This analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.

Over the 50 years since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG - all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players. In all, there have been over 200 FG models since 1966.

What is your opinion of this product?
I played a 5 different FG800's in a store and they were all a little different. None bad just different. But one of them was just perfect. Easy to play, sounded really good and at $200 they can't be beat. I'm sure the other four would have been just as nice with a set-up done but The one I brought home didn't need a thing. Very happy with my Yamaha FG800!

Worth The Price And Then Some !
What is your opinion of this product?
I recently retired from performing ( I'm 60 ) after doing it for 40 plus years and wanted a Acoustic that I could relax with ,but I didn't want to spend a fortune either. I've played and owned Taylors, Fenders, Epiphone, etc, and I have to say that this instrument really took me by surprise when I tested it out . The sound on this is akin IMO, to any of the Made in Mexico Martins that are being produced today but, this is much better made than those are . Of course I ended up buying it and as with any new Guitar, a setup is required . I put some Lemon Oil on the Fretboard and sanded down the stock saddle along with doing a slight truss adjustment. I then put on a new set of Elixirs 12-52 which really bought this to life. This one is without a doubt, a true player , especially with the satin finish neck which makes playability really easy . The stock Ping tuners hold tuning for what seems like forever and like I said, the sound and tone is just amazing. I love it !!!!

Wonderful for starters!
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar was such a step up from my last dreadnought guitar. The body is so sleek, yet hefty enough for a clean, deep, sound. The neck is very smooth for easy fret changing, and the tortoiseshell accented pick guard makes it look much more expensive than what it costs. All around a very well made, affordable, easy to use guitar!

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
The product was very low cost, which i like. it has a very good tone! For such a low priced guitar my expectation wasn't very good due to the price, but when it arrived, i could see that i got my monies worth, and then some. I was very pleased with how fast it came, and the mint condition it was in.
