Introducing the Yamaha FG820 dreadnought 12 string acoustic guitar in gloss - Natural

The Yamaha FG series is renowned for solid construction and terrific sound. The FG820 is no exception, providing great value for determined beginners and intermediates looking to develop their acoustic guitar skills. The guitar features the classic Yamaha FG tone with a 12-string twist - perfect for both the stage and the studio, this unique instrument has been crafted with care and precision.

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.

Expertly crafted

Crafted with a solid spruce top, this guitar delivers a robust, punchy tone with an impressive sustain that resonates through every note. The mahogany back and sides contribute to a pronounced midrange, enhancing the characteristic warm and woody sound, while also providing a strong foundation for an outstanding tonal output. The fretboard, meticulously crafted from rosewood, adds a touch of warmth to the sound profile, smoothing over harsher frequencies and contributing to a rich, clear tone that seamlessly complements any style of play.

What is a 12 string guitar?

A 12-string guitar is a type of acoustic or electric guitar that has 12 strings arranged in six pairs, or courses, with each pair tuned to the same pitch. The first and second strings in each pair are usually tuned in unison, while the third through sixth strings are often tuned in octaves. This doubling of strings creates a rich, jangly sound and adds depth to the instrument's tone, sometimes called a 'chorus effect'. The 12-string guitar is popular in folk musi and has also been used in jazz and rock genres, providing a distinctive and vibrant sound compared to the more common 6-string guitars.

The Yamaha FG series

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.
