50 Years of History

The FG180 and FG150 were released in 1966, marking the beginning of Yamaha’s FG series. We’ve refined and created numerous versions of FG in the 50 years since its inception, all of which have made FG the optimum acoustic for today’s players. Since 1966, there have been over 200 FG models.

The YAMAHA FG/FS 800 Series

The Yamaha FG, launched in 1966, demonstrated that a fantastic acoustic guitar didn’t have to be expensive. The original FG180 soon became a classic, with numerous careers and hit recordings beginning with an FG. The new FG acoustics offer the best-ever FG tone, as well as the same outstanding playability and class-leading quality that has made it the instrument of choice for millions of guitarists.

The Yamaha R&D Division created cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology, which gives the 800 Series a louder and stronger sound in the low to mid-ranges. Yamaha’s engineers produced this sound by using analysis and modeling to arrive at the best bracing design possible, rather than relying on precedent.

Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing

The 800 Series has a unique scalloped bracing design, which is an excellent acoustic structure for maintaining the top board’s longevity while bringing out more of the instrument’s natural tone.

The Power of Choice

2 body forms, including the all-new FS concert size; 5 tonewood grades; a wide range of color possibilities; acoustic or electric-acoustic versions Whatever your music’s personality, there’s an FG for it.

Made in Yamaha

Every detail has been carefully considered in order to create a better instrument. Each and every FG is designed to be a lifetime partner, from meticulously cured and dried timbers to exquisite hand-sprayed finishes and meticulous quality control.

    Oh my goodness, where do I begin? This guitar arrived in its original box, with no shipping box to protect it. Yamaha packaged their guitars really neatly, which was fortunate for me. In terms of the guitar, The beauty and attention to detail astounded me. It was surprising to find a pearl inlay around the soundhole, a pearl-like brown pickguard, and even the YAMAHA logo in a pearl-like finish. This dreadnaught appears to be significantly larger than my Yamaha F325D, which I reviewed before. The sunburst finish is significantly deeper and more attractive than the F325D’s sunburst hue. The top is SOLID spruce, with mahogany sides and back. Most Yamaha guitars have the same tuners, bridge, saddle, nut, strings, and finish. Surprisingly, the fretboard includes pearl-like inlay markings on a rosewood backdrop. These markings are a fraction of the size of the ones on my other guitars. It looks AWESOME and richer, in my opinion. In low-light situations, you may need to squint. I’m frightened to take my guitar out of my case since it’s so lovely. Amazing. Despite several reviews that indicate the contrary, advising a luthier, it has a greater sustain, a more room-filling tone, and is nicely intonated. What are you talking about? If you want a Gibson’s intonation, SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GET A GIBSON. This is ridiculous. With the compensated saddle, die-cast tuners, and beautifully gorgeous bridge, this guitar’s intonation is spot on.
    This instrument is obviously superior to my less expensive (but still affordable) Fender and Yamaha guitars. As the proud owner of a Yamaha YDP-163R digital piano, the attention to detail in Yamaha wood selection, thorough sound R/D, and the company’s reputation on stage and abroad have just made me a proud owner of this legendary FG series guitar, the world’s oldest and best-selling series. Trust me when I say that YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS CLASSIC GEM OF A PRECISION INSTRUMENT, handcrafted with pride by a world-class maker. I may sound as if I work for Yamaha, but all I want to say is that I wish I did. I’ve never been disappointed by any of their instruments, from pianos to guitars, and you shouldn’t be disappointed either.
