OVERVIEW

Special bracing and construction process ensures plenty of incredibly sound and great tone.

Derived from the FG830 which has a solid spruce top and rosewood back/sides, the FGX830C has a cutaway body and the electric system. Yamaha's proprietary under-saddle piezo pickup and System66 analog preamp ensure the solid plugged-in performance. 


Yamaha Scalloped Bracing
This FG has louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Yamaha’s engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork. This analysis led to the development of a new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer. 

System66 Preamp/Pickup System
System 66 feature an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band EQ, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.

    Comments about Yamaha FGX830C Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    One year old and several hundred hours gig and practice time. Still loving it. Deep tone, articulate mids, great projection.This guitar is ALIVE! Electronics provide an accurate sound. I play hard to carry a beat when I'm solo, and this guitar has held up well. Yet, when fingerpicked, every note comes through clearly. Every bit as good as a Martin and only a third of the price. Finish and build quality equal or better than boutique guitars costing thousands more. Stays in tune forever...like most Yamahas. What's not to like? My 3rd FG. There will be a fourth.
