Overview

Yamaha's FG800 Folk Acoustic Guitar is a reasonably priced entry-level acoustic guitar featuring one of the most popular tonewoods - solid Sitka spruce - for the top. This gives you a nice mellow tone with a slower response, and keeps the guitar nice and lightweight, a combination that is ideal for a beginner trying to find their way around the instrument. The nato back and sides also keeps the guitar lightweight and inexpensive while not sacrifcing tone. Other features of the FG800 include a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, black and white body binding, die-cast tuners, and a tortoise pickguard.

Case sold separately.

Great fireside guitar

By John

Comments about Yamaha FG800 Folk Acoustic Guitar:

Bought this guitar as a gift and replacement guitar for my father-in-law. Great sound right out of the box and rock solid tuners. Fretboard is easy to play, especially for an older player.

Great value for the price. A lot of guitar for the money.

      Comments about Yamaha FG800 Folk Acoustic Guitar:

      I have owned Yamaha guitars for over 40 years from basic ones to high end ones. Their consistency and "bang for the buck" are unparalleld. The volume and tone the FG-800 gives exceed one's expectations when you look at the price. I recently ordered five to take with us on a mission trip to later donate to our host church, and I didn't consider any other guitar to buy multiples of other than Yamaha. Best guitar on the planet for a beginner guitar, best back up guitar to have, just hands down the best entry level model of any brand.

        Product seems absolutely great, however, my particular guitar has very faded fret marks which might be a bit difficult for a beginner like me.

          Comments about Yamaha FG800 Folk Acoustic Guitar:

          I was looking for an acoustic guitar with low to mid range volume. I have an Epi Pro 1, which I really enjoy but, the only way to increase the low end volume is to play hard. Not my style. After reading all the reviews on guitars in the $200 - $300 range, my budget, I still couldn't make a choice. I figured the only way to decide was to go to the Columbus, Ohio GC and try them. Glad I did. There was nobody in the acoustic guitar room so I was able to play every guitar that I was looking at, and some that I wasn't, in my price range. After playing other Yamahas, Fender and even my beloved Epis, I kept coming back to the FG 800. Although a kinda "plain Jane" guitar, it had the low to mid range volume that I was looking for and the tone was fantastic. I purchased a boxed guitar and gave it a thorough inspection before leaving the store. After getting home and fine tuning it had a slight buzz on the D string. Put on some Elixer Polyweb 12s and no more buzz. the Elixir strings really brought out the tone and the volume is still there without "banging" it out. I gave it 4 stars because of it's Plain Jane looks. Really like the tuners, too.

            Needed a brighter sounding acoustic that is affordable. My gibson lg1 is beloved but could not provide bright tones for certain songs. This guitar can. A good investment for my home studio.
