    Comments about Yamaha FG Series FGX800C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've played guitar for over 40 years and owned many fine instruments; Martin, Taylor, Gibson, etc. The Yamaha FG800 series guitars are unmatched in their level of quality and value at this price point. I purchased the FG800 first and was delighted, a guitar that looks great, sounds great, plays great, and is inexpensive enough to take anywhere, worry free! Yamaha blew the doors off any other brand and set the guitar world on it's ear. Now they've done it again. The FGX800 is perfect for playing any venue without worry. Don't get me wrong, if something happened to my Yamaha I'd be upset, but not nearly as much as if something happened to one of my more expensive guitars. It's just nice (and unprecedented) to have a guitar this good for this little.

        I have had this guitar for a month now and really love the feel. It is a great guitar for that price. The neck has the feel of a Taylor and the electronics are nice. I am going to buy my son one now.
