Yamaha FG820 – Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar Comes in 5 Colors
In addition to warmer and stronger sound, thanks to the mahogany back and sides, the body binding and fingerboard binding are cream plastic, for an upgraded look, Yamaha FG820 also comes in a wealth of color options: Natural, Black, Sunset Blue, Brown Sunburst, and Autumn Burst.
Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
A new FG 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’s 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 new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.
