Overview

The FG850 Dreadnought is all-mahogany with mahogany body binding which gives it a warm, woody design to match the distinctive richness in the middle frequencies. Like all of Yamaha's newer FG models, it is louder and stronger 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 a new scalloped bracing pattern that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG850 has to offer.

    Comments about Yamaha FG850 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Absolutely in love with this thing. Yamaha holds true to it's name and continues to impress with this model. I'm thinking about getting some different med strings and bridge pins(for aesthetic), but other than that, I cannot complain. I will also say that this thing is much darker in person, don't let the picture fool you. If you're a mahogany-lover, like me, you cant go wrong here.
