Introducing the Yamaha FG800M
Year on year Yamaha strive to improve its previous models and this series is no exception! Each instrument in the FG800 series has new scalloped bracing which has moved the resonant centre, closer to the middle of the body for more volume, projection, low end and a bigger and fuller tone for the player.
Widely considered as possibly the best selling acoustic guitars of all time, the FG series is popular with beginners, gigging amateurs and professional players alike. The FG800M is a particularly popular guitar in the series, especially for beginners or the progressing player.
These are great looking and sounding guitars and the FG800 series have a smaller body making it easier for beginners to pick up.
Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
Yamaha’s engineers have utilised 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.
A new FG has louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. This guitar is gig ready - powerful enough for small to medium indoor and outdoor venues, yet still offering subtlety in tone and dynamic range.
With Yamaha you know you are getting quality. A solid spruce top with an ultra-thin matt finish gives you the best sound quality available in this price bracket. The die-cast chrome tuners not only look stunning but also stay firmly in place for an equality stable tuning.
This is a highly recommended guitar if you are just starting, looking to upgrade your smaller size acoustic, or just need an affordable gig-ready guitar for everyday use.
