Yamaha's FGX800C acoustic-electric guitar gives players an instrument with the quality and heritage of Yamaha's legendary FG Series at an affordable price. Its solid Sitka spruce top and nato back and sides are responsible for the guitar's clear, bright tone that improves with age. Yamaha developed the FGX800C's scalloped X-bracing to produce a robust, balanced tone without sacrificing strength or playability. The cutaway body and slimmer nut width provide comfort for players of all skill levels.

Onboard Electronics for Stage and Studio

The FGX800C features Yamaha's System 66 under-saddle piezo pickup and preamp system. Its 3-band EQ, adjustable mid-range control and precision chromatic tuner allow for optimum tone shaping and control. Powered by two AA batteries, System 66 provides stable power for high-quality amplified sound. The FGX800C's built-in electronics make it a versatile instrument ready for live performance or recording.

Premium Features at an Affordable Price

While priced for aspiring musicians, the FGX800C includes premium features found on Yamaha's higher-end models. Its solid spruce top will improve in tone over time and its cutaway body provides full access to the rosewood fretboard. The guitar's slim nato neck, rosewood bridge and die-cast chrome tuners provide playability and stability. A tortoise pickguard and wood bridge pins are stylish final touches on an instrument that punches above its weight.

A Trusted Name in Guitars

Yamaha has spent decades crafting high-quality, affordable guitars and honing the signature bright, balanced tone found in all FG Series models. The FGX800C continues this tradition of excellence, promising years of enjoyment for developing musicians. This full-featured, solid-top acoustic-electric is an ideal first guitar that will travel with you on your musical journey.
