Description

Details

The legacy of Yamaha FG guitars is still very much happening in the modern day. The FG series is the best-selling acoustic series in the world, employing new and innovative techniques to provide an all-round excellent acoustic sound and experience. The FGX800C is an electro acoustic version of its acoustic sibling, the FG800. Built using a selection of great materials, Yamaha have come up with a first-choice electro acoustic guitar at an entry level price which any guitarist can take advantage of.

BODY AND BRACING

Yamaha have over 50 years of history under their belts when it comes to crafting this superior acoustic series, and have consequently chosen solid spruce for the body top. Spruce is often a popular tonewood for an acoustic body top due to its ability to accomplish an all-round, well-balanced timbre with great projection. Further reinforcing the body top is newly designed scalloped bracing. The modern scalloped design comes from plenty of analysis and research behind closed doors, whereby Yamaha have tried and tested different structures to come up with the best possible build for reliability and sound. This scalloped bracing also improves the low to mid range tones while boosting the volume of the guitar when played.

The back and sides are constructed from a blend of nato and okume tonewoods which complement the spruce top and contribute to the overall acoustic output.

NECK

For the FGX800C, nato is used for the neck and is paired with a slick rosewood fingerboard. There are 20 frets for you to explore, decorated with dot inlays which are a great guide for beginners learning their way up and down the neck, thus it has an ultimately comfortable feel.

SYSTEM66+ SRT PREAMP

The FGX800C is equipped with the SYSTEM66+ SRT preamp for a transparent electro acoustic output. With a simple interface, the SYSTEM66+ has a 3-band EQ, Volume control and a convenient onboard tuner. The EQ reduces any unwanted feedback while providing you with the relevant controls to shape your tone. The onboard tuner allows you to accurately retune each string quickly and efficiently. You can change the preamp battery via the top side of the guitar.

HARDWARE AND FINISH

A reliable and robust rosewood bridge is fitted to the lower bout of the body, keeping a strong connection between the strings and body for improved sustain and resonance.

The headstock has die-cast chrome tuners which enable effortless retuning, and once you're in tune they work unremittingly to ensure accuracy and precision of each note.

The FGX800C is an exceptional electro acoustic model which captures all the classic features of the Yamaha FG series and gives them a modern twist at a very economical price.
