3 reviews for Yamaha FG800 | Budget Acoustic Guitar For Beginners

  1. Gregory A.

    I only got this guitar a few months ago, and not knowing much about guitars or quality, I did a lot of research to see what would be the best purchase for a beginner guitarist at the right price… and I stumbled upon the Yamaha FG700, which has fantastic reviews and ratings for beginners and has great overall quality and sound, especially for the price. When I came across the Yamaha FG800, which was claimed to be an improvement of the 700, I did a little more research, comparing instruments and such to make sure I didn’t buy something made out of cardboard and shoe strings. I conducted some research and found that, despite the fact that it didn’t have as many reviews, it was supposed to have better sound and durability for the same price.

    Knowing that Yamaha has always been a high-quality brand, I went with my gut and ordered this instrument. It sounds fantastic and is simple to play and learn on. I’ve only been playing for a month, but I’ve already remembered two songs of my own choosing and taste. I don’t know much about guitars, but I’ll tell everyone who cares and reads this review that it was a nice buy and a pleasant experience; there are no complaints; it sounds and looks great. I gave it 5 stars and have spoken highly about it to others.

    This was purchased to replace my 15-year-old acoustic guitar. I am really satisfied with my buy. There are no gaps or extra glue around the joints, therefore the craftsmanship is superb. The sturdy sitka spruce top is an appealing feature at any price range, much alone $200. The DG800’s design is basic, and the pattern on the headstock is painted, so it will wear out over time. However, this has no impact on the guitar’s overall fit and polish, which are superb for a $1,000 instrument.

    The design of this instrument is one of its best characteristics. The instrument is light and has an excellent neck-to-body balance, making it simple to play when standing. The neck is the most essential part. The neck has a matte surface and a complex neck shape, making playing incredibly smooth even with sweaty hands. The neck is thinner and flatters closer to the body, making barre chords and individual notes more comfortable to play. The design becomes a deeper rounded rectangle as you go closer to the head, which fits beautifully in the hand and provides excellent comfort and support for open chord playing.
    I can’t express how easy and enjoyable it is to play this neck. It’s a far cry from my last acoustic’s more U-shaped profile.

    All of the aforementioned adds to the instrument’s outstanding tone. The bass is lively, while the treble is crisp and pleasant. This is a fantastic deal because of the entire bundle. The neck shape alone, in my view, makes this the greatest value guitar available. In terms of tone, fit, and design, this guitar punches far above its weight, competing with guitars that are $500 more expensive. If you’re searching for an acoustic guitar for around $700, this should be at the top of your list.

    Because I’m not a particularly accomplished guitarist, I can’t promise that this instrument will wow a genuine connoisseur. I did, however, do some research and discovered that this is a well-liked instrument. I can confirm that it sounds fantastic after three days of intensive testing. Furthermore, I was able to play it immediately out of the box, with no further “set up” than it had from the manufacturer. I might check into what a luthier might do to make it even nicer down the line, but for now, I’m happy with the movement and intonation. The guitar stays in tune throughout the fretboard, has no buzzing frets, and intones with decent precision (sometimes plus or minus a few cents). It’s reasonably priced (in comparison), attractive, well-sounding, and of great quality. I’m content.
    Update: I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the guitar after owning it for 8 months and playing it for hours every week. It has a wonderful sound, is a very comfortable size, and stays in tune for several sessions. After a few months of use, I decided to replace the original strings with a lighter gauge. The guitar’s great playability and tone were maintained (though changed slightly given the lighter strings).
    After gaining more expertise with acoustic guitars, I can now say that the neck is fairly pleasant to play. That is, of course, a matter of personal preference, but as a novice, I found it to be incredibly simple to use very immediately. There are no regrets: this is a fantastic guitar.
