The new FG800 models have been developed based on Yamahas extensive research as well as feedback from players and industry experts. We found that lots of things didn’t need to be touched - but there was a consistent theme: guitarists wanted to go back towards the original FG180 sound with just a little more volume; a little more bass; a little more oomph.
Combining their luthiers' experience with state of the art structural acoustic analysis, we developed an even deeper understanding of how internal structure affects a guitar's voice, and how the original FG180 sounded so incredible. From there, they engineered a new design which both captures and enhances that classic tone.
One result of this unique approach is a totally new scalloped bracing pattern. It gives the FG800 Series more volume, more projection, more low end and a bigger tone for the player. In addition, the new bracing pattern moves the resonant centre much closer to the middle of the guitar, with a big impact on both the tone and the feel to the player.
But Yamahas goal was not only to craft a guitar that sounds great today, but to craft one who's tone lasts for a lifetime. A solid top board, a 0.25mm thin finish for great tone and superior wood protection, a super-comfortable thin neck profile and thin back and sides construction ensure maximum volume and resonance with long-term stability and consistency.
