Featuring superb projection and volume with a warm, rich tone, the FG800 makes a great full size acoustic guitar both for those starting out and those upgrading from smaller beginner models.

Matt finish version of Yamaha's standard acoustic model, FG800. Simple and traditional looks and outstanding quality, at an affordable price. A solid-top guitar with authentic sound that is well balanced without sacrificing its robust strength, thanks to the newly developed scalloped bracing design. Ultra-thin natural satin finish creates an instrument with a rich, natural sound and incredible feel.

Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
A new FG 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’s 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 new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.

50 Years of History
The history of Yamaha‘s FG series started in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150. Over the 50 years since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG - all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players.
In all, there have been over 200 FG models since 1966.

Made in Yamaha
Every aspect of an FG is crafted to make a better guitar. From painstakingly cured and dried woods to beautiful hand-sprayed finishes and detailed quality control checks each and every FG is made to be a lifelong partner.

Technical
Does the type of wood an acoustic guitar is made from make a difference to how it sounds?

It certainly does! The type of wood used in the construction of an acoustic guitar can give it unique tonal qualities. For instance, mahogany gives a very deep, warm character to an acoustic guitar's sound. Maple tends to give a much brighter tone in comparison, whereas cedar wood and spruce have a nicely balanced timbre.

What is guitar 'action'?

This is not the sort of 'action' that you get from the audience after the show when you're lead guitarist in an '80s rock band. It's much more exciting than that! Guitar 'action' describes the distance between the strings and the frets on a guitar. A lower action makes pressing down the string onto the frets a whole lot easier, but if it's too low your strings can buzz, rattle and lose their sustain (not "ring out"). If you have a high action, the strings are harder to press down but you get a much purer tone. Because nearly all guitars can be adjusted, you can usually find a happy medium between comfort and tone. If you need someone to fix the action on your guitar, just ask one of the Kenny's Music team.

Does it matter what the fingerboard on a guitar is made from?

Apart from making a big difference to how the guitar looks, different types of wood can feel and sound quite different when you're playing on them, and their differing feels can subtly affect the way you play.

Rosewood: Soft-feeling and warm-sounding, rosewood fretboards are popular for good reason.

Maple: Offering a brighter tone with more high end, Maple fretboards also wear over time which can be attractive if you want your axe to look lived-in. 

Ebony: similar to maple in tone and sturdier than rosewood, ebony fretboards offer a darker-looking neck with a brighter tone.

Does it matter what country a guitar is made in?

Despite what nationalists might tell you, there's not really any simple answer. Even though many companies design their guitars in the USA or Europe, the vast majority of instruments are actually manufactured in China, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan and Korea. There aren't any 'rules' as to what country makes good or bad guitars, but rather which brands have tighter quality control.
