Manufacturer's ID: FG800 BL

What we say:

Yamaha’s FG line has been in constant production since the mid 60s and is now something of a minor classic. Yamaha’s take on the dreadnought, the FG (presumably for Folk Guitar) is a great amalgamation of good design, excellent production standards and fantastic value for money.

This is where the range begins. The FG800 is the entry level FG but that doesn’t mean there is a drop in quality. Quite the opposite: the FG800 is built with a solid Spruce top. This allows the full and large sound of the dreadnought shape to resonate and vibrate properly when played, giving a balanced and loud tone that can handle chordal strumming and delicate fingerpicking equally well. This is a very traditional dreadnought: there is body binding and a subtle headstock inlay but otherwise it is relatively free from decoration, though this one is finished in a moody and slick shade of Black.

Inside the soundhole, the bracing on the guitar’s top has been scalloped according to new developments to improve the sound, tightness and response.

This guitar is a good buy for absolutely anyone interested in playing guitars.
