Since it was introduced in the 1960’s, the Yamaha FG has been recognized as simply the best acoustic guitar in its league. Millions of guitarists recall the part an FG has played in their playing career. The FG is a perfect example of Yamaha’s unique combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern guitar-building techniques. Everything focuses on the same goal: an outstanding playing experience, and the great tone that’s made FG the choice of some of the greatest players in history. Now, the greatest players of the future are choosing it too.

A Living Legend

Around for more than 40 years now, the FG Series offers outstanding quality with features like non-scalloped X-bracing and reverse-L neck block. Solid tops provide excellent performance and quality, delivering the clear sound characteristic of the FG series. All in all, an excellent instrument truly enjoyable to play.

Dovetail Neck Joint:

The joint between body and neck is essential to an acoustic guitar, not just for physical stability but also for sound. The efficient transfer of vibrations from neck to body is crucial in creating a full and balanced tone. All Yamaha acoustic guitars feature a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint. The precisely crafted joint uses no metal parts and gives the guitar the best neck-to-body contact for outstanding tone along with incredibly strength and stability.

Thin Finish:

All Yamaha FG guitars feature our signature ultra-thin finish. The perfect combination of advanced finish technology and artisan hand-spraying techniques ensures the rich, high-gloss finish on FG models is around 0.25 mm thin. It provides the minimum restriction of vibrations of the wood, and a louder, fuller tone while remaining incredibly strong and resilient.

Bracing Pattern:

The main purpose of bracing on an acoustic guitar is to strengthen the top against the tension of the strings. Also, by modifying the vibrations of the guitar’s top, the bracing also serves to create the guitar’s tonal signature. Yamaha’s FG guitars use a non-scalloped X-bracing design with each of the eight braces carefully positioned to tailor the guitar’s sound. They perfectly complement the tone woods used in order to create the FG’s unmistakable combination of clear and balanced tone with incredible control. The use of non-scalloped bracing ensures your FG will retain its tone, response, and stability for a lifetime of playing.
