The FG180 50th Reissue is a homage to the very first acoustic guitar that Yamaha made way back in 1966. While it looks almost identical to the original, the FG180 2016 has plenty of premium appointments.

In place of all laminate construction, the reissue has a solid spruce top with ARE treatment, solid mahogany back and sides, wood bindings and comes with hardcase as standard.

The headstock design and prints stay true to its roots with the simple fonts and truss rod adjustments done at headstock. The guitar also has open geared tuners.

Street price is under US$900 at the time of this blog post.
