Yamaha's FS800 folk acoustic guitar is a versatile instrument prized for its outstanding quality and value. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and nato back and sides, the FS800 produces a balanced tone with crisp highs, focused mids and robust lows. Yamaha developed an innovative scalloped bracing design that maintains the top board's durability while maximizing resonance. The result is an acoustic with impressive volume and sustain for its compact size.

Ideal for Beginners and Professionals Alike

While perfectly suited for new players or those with smaller hands, the FS800's brilliant tone and playability also make it a go-to for professional musicians. Its concert-style body and slim neck promote comfort and the rosewood fretboard enables smooth fingering across all 20 frets. Recording artists appreciate how the FS800's balanced midrange and articulated high end translate through a microphone.

Timeless Looks Meet Modern Innovation

The FS800 features a traditional appearance with a natural finish, faux tortoiseshell pickguard and chrome tuners. Yamaha utilized cutting-edge analysis to develop the scalloped bracing pattern, an acoustic structure that achieves an ideal balance of volume, sustain and clarity. This pioneering design gives the FS800 a voice far beyond its humble price point.

Premium Components and Portability

With die-cast chrome tuners, a rosewood fretboard and bridge and an adjustable truss rod, the FS800 includes premium parts typically found on more expensive models. Overall, the Yamaha FS800 folk acoustic guitar offers stunning craftsmanship, innovative engineering and inspiring tone for guitarists of all levels.
