Affordable and fun folk guitar for the budding musician.

Yamaha's FG800 Folk Acoustic Guitar is an ideal entry level acoustic for aspiring musicians. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and nato back and sides, the FG800 produces a balanced tone with a good response—perfect for developing technique and learning chord voicings. The lightweight, all-wood construction makes extended practice sessions comfortable, while the slim neck and low action facilitate fretting for small or inexperienced hands.

Sitka spruce is one of the most popular tonewoods for acoustic guitars thanks to its ability to produce a wide range of tones with articulate highs, full lows, and a quick response. The FG800's solid Sitka spruce top helps it achieve a classic acoustic voice with rich overtones and a crisp, clear sound. The nato back and sides enhance warmth and resonance without adding too much weight to the instrument.

Yamaha designed the FG800 with beginners and developing players in mind. Its slim neck, approximately 1.77" at the nut, and low action make it easy to play chords, change between positions, and explore different techniques as you learn. The rosewood bridge and fingerboard provide a smooth surface for sliding and bending. Die-cast chrome tuners help you keep the FG800 in tune through extended practice sessions and live performances.

While affordably priced, the FG800 is built to provide years of enjoyment and service. Black and white binding around the top and back helps prevent the wood from splitting over time. A tortoise pickguard protects the top from scratches and dings. All components are designed to hold up to regular use and environmental changes, giving you maximum value for your investment.

The FG800 comes with all the essentials for a beginner guitarist. A durable gig bag provides basic protection for transport and storage. Steel strings produce a bright, balanced tone. An adjustable truss rod lets you customize neck relief to your preferences. With quality materials, construction, and components for an affordable price, the FG800 has everything you need to start learning and playing acoustic guitar.
