The FG830 is a top quality guitar which hails from the best-selling acoustic series in the world, the Yamaha FG series. Yamaha have used some new and advanced techniques in the structure of the FG830, keeping in line with over 50 years of expertly built FG guitars whilst also including some modern appointments that make this model ultimately better than before.


Yamaha did their research with regards to choosing the best tonewoods and also spent time on developing a very relevant new type of body bracing. The FG830 has a solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood in the back and sides. This tonewood pairing allows the FG830 to project with plenty of clarity, volume and depth, thus livening up any room with its beautiful sound and better sustain.

Beneath the soundboard, this FG model has new scalloped bracing; this new development boosts and strengthens the low to mid range frequencies. Yamaha have painstakingly tried and tested this new method to achieve the ideal acoustic sound while jointly reinforcing the soundboard.


A robust nato neck is firmly fitted to the body of the FG830 and is paired with a smooth, rosewood fingerboard. With such a slick playing surface, the FG830 has a comfortable feel in your hand. White dot inlays decorate the frets to direct you, and there are 20 frets to explore in total.


The FG830 is fitted with a sturdy rosewood bridge which promotes a better sustain and intonation by holding a strong connection between the body and strings.

A convenient feature, especially for beginners, is that the die-cast chrome tuners do maintain an accurate tuning while you play. The headstock also features a striking cream binding just as it is on the neck and body.

An abalone, black and white inlay embellishes the soundhole and is accompanied by a protective tortoise pattern pickguard.

The Yamaha FG830 is yet another fine acoustic model to come out of the leading FG series with appointments that truly enhance the overall playing experience.

Posted on 22/03/2019 by I had been learning on a borrowed guitar and wanted something that sounded great and was easy to play. After trying several models in store this one ticked all the boxes.
Posted on 18/11/2016 by Can't recommend this guitar highly enough. Really wanted a model with rosewood back and sides and with powerful projection. Action is perfectly low straight off the shelf, and the satin finished, thin neck all aids the playability. I pay finger-picking style mainly but wanted a good "strummer" to add to my collection. It's got great volume and projection but can still deliver subtlety, either with a pick or through finger-picking. Lovely aesthetics too, especially with the cream binding all around the body, neck and headstock. Staff at Dawsons, as ever, were friendly, non-invasive and helpful - this time I purchased from Liverpool.
