Yamaha FG830 Folk Guitar: It All Starts Here

When it was introduced in 1966, the Yamaha FG proved that a great acoustic guitar doesn't have to cost a fortune. With a focus on great playability, musical tone, and outstanding build quality, the original FG180 became a classic. Now, 50 years since the introduction of FG acoustics, its tone is better than ever, making it a perfect choice for any guitarist, no matter where they are on their musical journey.

Enhanced Sound with Advanced Bracing

The FG Series has louder and stronger sound in the low-to-mid ranges thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Yamaha engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork. This analysis led to the development of the scalloped bracing pattern, an ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound.

Rich Overtones and Improved Sustain

The Yamaha FG830 Folk Guitar features rosewood back and sides, which deliver rich overtones and improved sustain, providing greater depth to the sound. Its small and thin body is perfect for intermediate- to upper-level, fingerpicking-style players, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable playing experience.
