When strummed, we found it to be an incredibly responsive guitar. The bracing has been improved since its predecessor, the FG700, which has resulted in improved dynamics. When we softened our touch, the guitar sounded sweet and rich, and when strummed hard the tones tightened up significantly. We cannot deny the fact that both the FG800 and the FS800 guitars are great bangers, and they are two of the most popular acoustic guitars. The spruce top kept the tones snappy and bright, which gave it a nice shimmering top end with enough punch to keep things sounding full. When played with arpeggiated chords or fingerstyle, the note separation was far better than expected, with bell like clarity.

This guitar gets the name of its body type from the huge battleships used in WW1 – the guitar’s body type is fairly large, and it boasts some bold characteristics. it’s quite a bright tone I’d say a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being super warm and 10 being super bright. But everyone’s ear is different. The Materials The rest of the fittings, such as the die-cast machine heads and rosewood bridge, feel solid. Although nothing to write home about, they feel serviceable, and as we’ve seen on some other entry-level guitars, this isn’t always the case. Verdict The Grand Concert Body Type is fairly compact, and it’s an excellent parlour guitar – you can play it while watching TV, sitting comfortably on the couch. The history of Yamaha‘s FG series started in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150. Over the 50 years since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG - all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players.

Yamaha FG800 Acoustic, Brown Sunburst Overview

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the UK, EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided. The solid top and large dreadnought body deliver a rich, full-bodied tone usually reserved for more expensive instruments. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better quality guitar with these specs at a better price. That’s why the Yamaha FG800 has to be one of our favorite beginner acoustics out there right now. Yamaha FG800 Specifications It’s also a good fit for you if you need a powerful sound and the lowest ends possible.That said, the FG800 isn’t ideal for beginners because it’s uncomfortable to hold, and it’s also big. The bridge and fretboard were both made from walnut, which is a wood that is seeing a lot more use, even in high end models. The grain on the fretboard looked good, and was nice and tight, with no deep pores. We loved the rounded fretboard edges, too, they significantly added to the comfort and playability, and we found ourselves wishing other manufacturers at this price point would do the same. Both guitars require tuning because they are factory-made. If you are a beginner starting to learn guitar, it means that you have to visit a hardware/music shop for tuning. Scalloped Bracing and Fretboard

Yamaha FS800 : If you find the bulky frame of the dreadnought too much to get your arm around, or perhaps you’re looking for a less boomy sound, then it’s worth trying the smaller body of the Yamaha FS800. Combining our luthiers' experience with state of the art structural acoustic analysis, we developed an even deeper understanding of how internal structure affects a guitar's voice, and how the original FG180 sounded so incredible. From there, we engineered a new design which both captures and enhances that classic tone. The quality of these two guitars is exceptional since both guitars feature a Solid Sitka Spruce top, a mark of quality in the world of guitars. The fingerboard is made from rosewood. This is by far and away the most common material for acoustic guitar fingerboards – but definitely not a bad thing. Scale Length

At A Glance:

Sustain was a strong suit for the FG800, especially when strumming open chords. This was largely helped by the improved scalloped bracing, which not only gave it superb sustain, but also provided it with huge presence and awesome projection. While FG800 and FS800 are both full-sized guitars with 20 frets, they vary in length at 25.6 and 25 inches respectably. With the FG800 being slightly longer than FS800, the total length of the FG800 is 40.9inches, while FS800 is 40.2 inches. Its curves are significantly more noticeable than the FG800’s, a design feature that makes this a sexy guitar, and the curves also allow the guitar to produce the most beautiful mid-tones, hence the use of this guitar for a wide variety of musical styles. The FG800 was a top player during our test sessions. It was big and bold, and far outperformed its price tag (and our expectations). It was well set up right out of the box, with a nice medium height action, However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.
