Like mentioned in this post, Yamaha's FG line is one of the oldest and most popular ones amongst all market-wide guitar lines. It's no question that they have improved with each guitar they made and this one really excells in all areas.
At first sight, it appears as just another basic entry-level guitar. But it is actually much more.
There's not much to hate about FG830. Let's take a look at some of its key features.
Hmm, I wonder which material Yamaha picked for this beauty. You guessed it - Rosewood tonewoods! Having a guitar built from those materials ensure that you get the best possible sound out of it, but also the overall tonal balance. This is not your average mid-level guitar and will certainly impress you.
Besides the good sound, it also looks amazing thanks to its fretboard.
When you find a guitar that's pretty affordable, but doesn't sound cheap, you just hit a jackpot! That's exactly the case here.
If you're a beginner, or one of those people trying to play on a decent guitar, without paying for the first-tier models, then look no further. Its rich projection and overtones will sure impress you and make you wanna play this guitar all day long.
Even its sonic impact, which is one of the most important feature people look for in a guitar, suprised me, as I didn't expect it to be that good considering this price range.
While FG830 probably isn't the guitar you want to see yourself playing in 10 years, it sure is a pretty great, if not one of the best, entry-level model.
