My Yamaha FG Limited Edition is a positively amazing and purely sounding acoustic guitar. With a comfortable feel, it is perfectly weighted and balanced and the exquisite woods selected on my model are comprised of a beautiful even-grained Spruce Top w/ slight silking and the bck/sides of high-quality Mahogany that has an orange-red hue. It is slightly glossed with an amazing polish that protects the wood yet encourages the top's vibration. The sound? Man, this thing reverberates and sustains forever! Complex yet distinguishable tones across the spectrum. This is an all hand-made model that is imho representative of guitars 2-3 x's its price. Wish I owned 2 of 'em. LOL! Get one soon. I love my FG! äӔӗӔӔӕӗਰੑ}ӟӟӦӞӟӦӣӦӝӦᦀ(Many thanks master guitar makers of Japan!)
This is one Yamaha's hidden secrets, built in Yamaha's custom shop in Tenryu in Hamamatsu Japan. As good or better than the 26 or 36's. I was a bit worried about spending this much for a Yamaha., ...couldn't be happier. Frett work neck and set up is superb. The bass and mids are strong and clean, the highs are sharp. I have played high end Gibsons, Martins, and Taylors and I picked this guitar up at well under half of some others I had tried. I would have paid whatever I would have had to pay to get this instrument, it was that good, that different. The high notes ring, ring! The low notes rumble and purr, when you flat pick the volume sings out, booms out! When you finger pick, even though it's softer, it still bellows, and it's such a warm, rich tone. I don't know how they did it, honestly, maybe it has something to do with the bracing, the tone woods are all top quality. All I can tell you is that this is the best sounding guitar I've ever picked up. Beyond sound, this is a beautiful work of art.
I own a 1970 red lable fg-180 nippon gakki, like this is modeled after. I played this back in Feb 2010 at a guitar center literally a week after I bought my red label. I was surprised that it is a completely different guitar. The tuning keys aren't the vintage style, the sound is nowhere near as midrangey and bassey, and the neck really is nothing like the old red labels. However, this guitar is very very well made and does sound beautiful. I wish they would do an accurate reissue because my fg-180 (and just about all the others from what ive heard) have horribly high action from age, and a neck reset is near impossible to to epoxy being used to glue the neck in.
