Distinctive old-school warmth
Rich, resonant, familiar. The FS850 features an all-mahogany construction that oozes sonic richness. Mahogany is known for its beautiful warmth, more dominant mid-range, and emphasised bass. With a long, rich heritage in acoustic history, you'll be certain to associate the wonderful tone with some classic recordings.
And, thanks to an all-mahogany build and solid top, this Yamaha FS850 is beautifully responsive to classic blues, roots music, and slide techniques. All thanks to its richer, darker, more complex tone. It's also beautifully resonant with a distinctive punchy character. From the first strum you've got an authentic, old-school tone with familiar richness and warmth - you won't be disappointed.
Compact and defined
Comfortable, compact, distinctive. The Yamaha FS850 has a comfortable, smaller concert body. It's easy to play, and you'll be comfortable whether you're having a lazy jam at home, or throwing yourself around a rehearsal room. A quality instrument that's perfect for beginners, developing players, and budding musicians on a budget. It's time to get creative, and do it with a world renowned vibe.

Strong sound from its very core
Authentic, distinct, classic. This FS850 features newly developed scalloped bracing. This specific type of bracing reinforces the FS850's top. Giving it great strength and durability without sacrificing any of its outstanding FG character.

Yamaha's painstaking process and meticulous attention to detail have brought out the best of this FS850's sonic character. It's louder, with a richer, stronger sound. From the low to mid-ranges, your instrument sounds full and beautifully balanced.
