Both the FGX and FSX 830 models are manufactured with a solid spruce top with rosewood back and sides. The rosewood back and sides produce rich overtones and a longer lasting sustain. There is also an added depth to the guitar unlike the lower models in the range. This combined with the newly developed scalloped bracing across the whole FG/FS/FGX/FSX range, which adds a fatter low end, creates a well-rounded sounding instrument that enhances the general tone, projection and volume when played acoustically as well as when plugged into an amplifier.
The electronics featured within the guitars are an updated under-saddle SRT-Piezo pick-up alongside the System66 analogue pre-amp (the main pickup in the ever popular APX range). Combined, these have been updated to offer an improved overall sound quality.
These are in our opinion not only great sounding but beautiful looking guitars that merge together subtle nuances from the abalone inlay around the sound hole, die cast chrome tuners to the cream binding that make this guitar stand out.
