It’s hard to name that one person who’s never played a guitar, or at least, wanted to. Hobbyists and occasional guitar players are in abundance, but those handful who are in dire need of a good acoustic guitar will certainly like what we’ve prepared.
Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
A new 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, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.
50 Years of History
The history of Yamaha‘s FG series started in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150. Over the 50 years since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG - all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players. In all, there have been over 200 FG models since 1966.
Made in Yamaha
Every aspect of an FG is crafted to make a better guitar. From painstakingly cured and dried woods to beautiful hand-sprayed finishes and detailed quality control checks each and every FG is made to be a lifelong partner.

- Not really thinner, thicker, longer, or shorter anywhere.
I play most every type of music, so my styles are those of: bluegrass, blues, country, rock, classical, romantic, contemporary, alternative, and other indie-styles. The depth of the body is not too deep or too shallow; she fits perfectly and does not cause uncomfortable play. She can sound clear and romantic if played as such, or she can have a twangy rawness if played so. I mostly play without her being plugged in, but I usually keep the lows turned up, and Highs just under midway. However, the possibilities of her sound are endless. If you plug her into an amp, you can get some distortion, however I would generally leave this for the electric guitars. The electronics aren't terribly impressive, but I've not fiddled with them much, since I usually play either for myself or in the company of a few friends in an intimate setting.
