The Yamaha FG840 Acoustic is the next step in the journey of Yamaha's classic FG acoustic guitars. Extensive research and development have continuously improved the FG experience for years, and the FG840 utilises these improvements to deliver the technology in a fantastically playable guitar.
Emitting an exquisite tone, thanks to its solid spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, this guitar delivers a bright and precise tone with sufficient delicacy in volume for a fantastic performance. Effortlessly playable, a nato neck and rosewood fretboard offer a comfortable grasp, whilst still allowing you to freely traverse jumping easily from chord to chord. Yamaha have certainly proved that a great sounding guitar doesn't need to cost a fortune.

Yamaha have completely removed all the guesswork from acoustic sound design. Utilising cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology, created by their research and development team, they have managed to achieve a truly revolutionary tone thanks to its new scalloped bracing. Designed to elevate the acoustic overtones of the guitar, the new FG models have a louder and stronger sound in the low to mid ranges, infusing them with fantastically rich harmonic overtones, and producing a guitar which is sonically superior to those with standard bracing. One final benefit of the Scalloped X bracing is strength, making your guitar more durable - essential for a long-lasting guitar.
Designed for a fantastic playing experience, the FG840 feels like a dream. Delivering a beautiful combination of a silky, smooth nato neck and a clear, clean rosewood fretboard, the guitar offers a tight, comfortable grip, whilst also providing an abundance of freedom to let you flourish and flurry across the fretboard. Rosewood is an often sought-after fretboard material, because not only does it guarantee a faultless playing surface, but it is also simultaneously extremely durable, and it emits a well-rounded and balanced tone ideal for any musician. With tuning stability key, the FG guitar is equipped with a set of Die-cast tuners, expertly preventing tuning slips for a precise and accurate performance. The Yamaha FG840 is an experience you must tell everyone about.
Yamaha initially started producing the FG series in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150, with the idea of offering exceptional quality instruments at an affordable cost. Over the 50 years since then, Yamaha have released several generations of FGs, all of which have been innovated to further the playability of the acoustic guitar. With over 200 FG models since the series' inception, the FG has quickly become the ideal partner for contemporary acoustic players. It has truly become a legendary make of acoustic guitars.
