The new FG range from Yamaha manage to deliver premium acoustic guitar feel with a very low price tag. The FG820-12 is a superb 12 string guitar that allows players to take their first steps into the reqarding world of 12-string guitars without having to spend more money. The 12-string guitar is a master at creating a rich sound owing to 'paired' strings that are tuned an octave apart.

Excellent tonewoods

Yamaha know their tonewoods well and have chosen chose solid spruce for the top of the FG820-12. This produces plenty of precise top end clarity and great projection which is ideal for 12-strings. This works in harmony with the Mahogany back and sides that produces a super, warm tone with plenty of backbone.

To further enhance the sound without increase in cost, Yamaha have put in place a new scalloped bracing system that is tuned to increase response across the low end and richer harmonic overtones in the mid range. The end result is a beautiful tone that you would expect to hear on a much more expensive model.

Superior comfort

The neck of the FG820-12 Acoustic Guitar is also crafted from Nato and shaped to a comfortable, rounded profile that will feel natural in the hand, even for new players. The neck is adorned with a rosewood fingerboard containing 20 frets and subtle dot inlays to help you work your way around the fretboard with ease. The neck is finished with a matt effect so that you can smoothly glide up and down the neck not worrying about any stickiness or residue that can occur on longer performances.

Other features

Other features of the Yamaha FG820-12 Acoustic Guitar include die-cast chrome machine heads for accurate and stable tuning, a tortoise-shell finish pickguard and body binding to really give the FG820-12 a crisp and distinguished edge.

Whatever your ability, if you want a high-quality 12-string guitar that will sing performance after performance, but don't wish to venture into the higher price range usually associated with 12-strings, the Yamaha FG820-12 12 String Acoustic Guitar is well worth your consideration.

Posted on 22/08/2019 by Great sound. I tune mine down a tone but many keep to standard tuning. My previous 12 string ( not a Yamaha- won't embarrass the brand) was tuned down a tone but still lifted the bridge. No such problem with the Yamaha. Highly recommended.
