Overview

Rich overtones and improved sustain thanks to the rosewood back and sides deliver improved sound through greater ‘depth’. The appearance, with abalone inlay around the sound hole, is more luxurious and an obvious step-up.


Specially Developed Scalloped Bracing
Yamaha's modern 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, an ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.

      Comments about Yamaha FG830 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I got Yamaha's FG700s first, then the FG800. Both are amazing guitars, The 800 replaced the 700s, which was the world's bestselling acoustic. The 800 line, including the 830, are the same guitar as the 700 line was, except with scalloped bracing for more bass. This works out especially well with the 830, with it's laminated rosewood back and sides. When I first strummed it, it was like strumming a Martin. The sustain lasted forever. I notice one reviewer said they got one of these in 2010. They weren't out until 2016. They probably meant the FG730s, with the unscalloped bracing. Those are great, these are better. You will not find a guitar as good as the 800 or the 830 at their prices. They are amazing guitars. I have about 25 guitars, and I know.

        Comments about Yamaha FG830 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        How a guitar can sound this good and play this well for it's price is mind boggling. I played every guitar I could get my hands on for weeks. Many at 3 to 4 times the price. When I picked this one up it just felt like I had run into an old friend. Intonation is as good as it gets, up and down the neck. It makes playing and writing an absolute joy. A big thanks to Yamaha for making an instrument that plays and sounds better than a lot of guitars that I could never afford.

        Comments about Yamaha FG830 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I first purchased this guitar back in 2010. Found it to be as good sounding as the 4-$600.00 other well known brands and this one beat them all in tone, craftsmanship and overall value. Of coarse I let it go. But I will be replacing it with this model. I feel that this is the best deal out their in this price range.

        Comments about FG830 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I use this guitar to play the classics like " Will you still love me tomorrow". It's a beautiful guitar ( I got the sunrise model) and is a solid investment at the price. I think this is great rosewood at a bargain price. But Yamaha is my favorite inexpensive guitar.
