The design of the FSX830C is influenced by its sibling, the FS830, and is additionally equipped with onboard electronics making it stage-ready from the moment you take it out of the box. The FSX830C has been developed by Yamaha's engineers who have over five decades of guitar-building expertise, bringing together key techniques with modern tweaks to construct a compact, concert style guitar that has as big a sound as a dreadnought or jumbo. Hailing from the best-selling Yamaha FG acoustic series, the FSX830C is yet another outstanding model in the range.
BODY AND BRACING
Unlike the FG series of acoustics, the FSX830C is 10mm slimmer in the body, thus its concert profile and slim build make it ultimately comfortable to play for even smaller, younger guitarists. The body top is made using the ever-popular solid spruce, known for its superb sound projection. Rosewood is used in the back and sides, providing a great tonewood partnership with sounds of rich lows to sparkling highs all with plenty of sustain.
The FSX830C features modern scalloped bracing beneath the body top which adds stability to the body and improves the guitar's ability to project with transparency and clarity despite its compact size.
A nato neck is firmly fitted to the FSX830C, providing a smooth, comfortable playing feel. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which is a luxurious playing surface. The neck features 20 frets decorated with dot inlays as a guide, and you can even easily reach the upper frets thanks to the cutaway in the body.
SYSTEM66+ SRT PREAMP
The FSX830C is kitted out with an under-saddle piezo pickup allowing you to plug into an amplifier for a magnified sound. The SYSTEM66+ SRT preamp has a superb 3-band EQ, an adjustable mid-range frequency and Volume control. Conveniently the preamp also features an onboard tuner, allowing you to keep your strings in check whether you're recording or performing live on a dark stage.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
A reliable rosewood bridge is fitted to the lower bout of the FSX830C and maintains a strong connection between the strings and the body for improved sustain and resonance. At the headstock, die-cast chrome tuners work tirelessly to keep each string correctly tuned.
Yamaha have drawn on over 50 years of history in the creation of the FSX830C, using top quality materials and modern techniques that make the FSX830C electro acoustic guitar stand out.
