Yamaha FG800 and FS800 Series

Old news from NAMM 2016. Yamaha has launched the 800 series to replace the long-serving 700 series acoustic guitars.

While the solid top FG700, FG720 and FG730 guitars captured fans as read on internet forums and reviews, Yamaha has kept the same formula and added new bracing, new colours and the addition (for the first time) of a solid mahogany top guitar to the range.

The FG850 is the first mahogany top guitar from Yamaha and should be a hit if its quality is in line with the outgoing FG700 series. The spruce top FG840 with its maple back and sides seems like another interesting guitar.

The limited edition FG180 Reissue sits on top of the new acoustic series and it will be no surprise to see these guitars gaining legions of fans like their FG700 series.
