It All Starts Here

When it was introduced in 1966, the FG proved that a great acoustic guitar doesn't have to cost a fortune. With a focus on great playability, musical tone and outstanding build quality, the original FG180 became a classic. Now, 50 years since the introduction of FG acoustics, its tone is better than ever, so no matter where you are on your musical journey, it all starts here!

Derived from the FG800, which has a solid spruce top and nato/okoume back and sides, the FGX800C has a cutaway body and an electric system. The Yamaha proprietary undersaddle piezo pickup and System66 analog preamp ensure solid, plugged-in performance.

FGX800C Features

  • Traditional Western Body
  • Solid Spruce Top
  • Nato/Okoume Back and Sides
  • Scalloped Bracing

Scalloped Bracing
The FG/FGX Series 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 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 scalloped bracing pattern, an ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound.

50 Years of History
The Yamaha FG Series was born in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150. Since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG guitars - all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players.

The Power of Choice
Two body shapes, including the concert-size FS; Five grades featuring different tonewood options; a myriad of color options; acoustic and acoustic-electric models. No matter what style you play, there is an FG to match.

Made in Yamaha
From painstakingly cured and dried woods to beautiful, hand-sprayed finishes and detailed quality control checks, each and every FG is created to be a lifelong partner.
