Yamaha know their tonewoods well and have chosen chose solid spruce for the top of the FG820. This produces plenty of precise top end clarity and great projection. This works in harmony with the Mahogany back and sides that produces a super, warm tone with plenty of backbone.
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 FG820 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 FG820 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 FG820 a crisp and distinguished edge.
For accomplished guitarists or for newer players that want a reliable, high-quality guitar without the high price tag, the Yamaha FG820 Acoustic Guitar is an all-round outstanding acoustic instrument.
