Yamaha is proud to introduce the FSX800C. This innovative small-body acoustic-electric guitar provides musicians an instrument ideal for live performance and recording. Derived from the acclaimed FS800, the FSX800C adds a cutaway body and Yamaha's System 66 electronics for a robust plugged-in sound. The solid Sitka spruce top paired with nato back and sides produces a clear, balanced tone with rich overtones. Yamaha's newly developed scalloped bracing optimizes resonance and projection.

System 66 Pickup Provides Studio-Quality Sound

The FSX800C features Yamaha's proprietary under-saddle piezo pickup and 3-band EQ preamp. Musicians can shape their tone with control over bass, middle and treble frequencies in addition to a mid-range frequency selector. Powered by AA batteries, the preamp provides a stable power supply for consistent sound quality gig after gig. The tuner ensures accurate intonation for optimal playability and tone.

Comfortable Body For All Players

The FSX800C has a slimmer body depth compared to the FG series, offering increased comfort and playability for musicians of all sizes. The compact body minimizes feedback, ideal for live performance, while retaining full, balanced tone. The cutaway provides access to higher frets for advanced techniques. This sleek acoustic-electric guitar is a versatile instrument suited for guitarists of any skill level.

Premium Materials and Traditional Style

The FSX800C combines the best in traditional craftsmanship with modern enhancements. The solid Sitka spruce top and nato back and sides provide a clear, balanced tone with rich overtones. The natural satin finish allows the wood grains of the tonewoods to shine through, showcasing the instrument's all-natural materials. Chrome tuners, a rosewood fretboard and bridge and an elegant soundhole rosette complete the vintage-inspired style.
