Manufacturer's ID: GFS830
What we say:
For those looking for Yamaha quality but perhaps in a design that’s slightly smaller and more manageable than a dreadnought, try the FS range. These are sister models to the massively popular FG series and have a smaller, folk size body. This makes handling the guitar easier and more comfortable than bigger bodied models. Sonically you also get a tighter sound with more focus on the fundamental note. These models (like any guitar) can handle any technique but on this case fingerpicking styles are especially suitable.
Solid Spruce is a natural choice for a guitar top: it is a lively sounding wood that resonates well and has the right level of stiffness to make for a strongly constructed guitar that sounds excellent. Of course, the more you play the guitar, the more the top vibrates and the better it will sound over time! The back and sides are formed from laminated Rosewood which helps to open the sound up and introduce more harmonic overtones.
The FS830 has a very playable neck with a Rosewood fingerboard. The body and neck are both bound with cream plastic too, to make a nice contrast with the Natural finish. This guitar represents excellent value: a solid topped Yamaha with a smaller size, a great feel and a greater sound!
