Yamaha FG800 Acoustic Review

The Yamaha FG800 Acoustic Guitar provides a comfortable, traditional experience for beginner and intermediate guitarists to play and practice on. Lightweight tonewoods, upgraded bracing and a robust yet elegant build all combine to create this excellent entry level guitar.


with over 50 years of high quality guitar production under their belts, Yamaha know their tonewoods and chose solid spruce for the top of the FG800. This produces plenty of precise top end clarity and great projection. This works in tandem with the Nato/Okume back and sides that produce plenty of warm middle tones.

To further enhance the sound without increase in cost, Yamaha have put in place a new scalloped bracing system that is tuned to increase response across the low end and richer harmonic overtones in the mid range. The end result is a beautiful tone that you would expect to hear on a much more expensive model.


The neck of the FG800 Acoustic Guitar is also crafted from Nato and shaped to a comfortable, rounded profile that will feel natural in the hand, even for new players. The neck is adorned with a rosewood fingerboard containing 20 frets and subtle dot inlays to help you work your way around the fretboard with ease. The neck is finished with a matt effect so that you can smoothly glide up and down the neck not worrying about any stickiness or residue that can occur on longer performances.


Other features of the Yamaha FG800 Acoustic Guitar include die-cast chrome machine heads for accurate and stable tuning, a tortoise-shell finish pickguard and body binding to really give the FG800 a crisp and distinguished edge.

If you are a new player that needs a full-size guitar to flourish on, or a more intermediate player who just wants a nice acoustic for home and small gigs, the Yamaha FG800 Acoustic Guitar would suit you perfectly.
