OVERVIEW

Especially accessible for players with smaller hands.

The FS830 offers rich overtones, greater depth and improved sustain thanks to the rosewood back and sides and special bracing. The appearance, with abalone inlay around the sound hole, is more luxurious and an obvious step-up. The small and thin body is perfect not only for female/young players but for intermediate to upper level finger-picking style players.


This FS 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 the new scalloped bracing pattern, an ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FS has to offer.

    Comments about Yamaha FS830 Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

    Ordered the FG830 first but sent it back for the smaller body FS830. Both sounded amazing but I liked the feel of the smaller body better. Put a good set of strings like Elixer HDs on right away and it brings this thing to life. I went ahead and did a TUSQ saddle, nut, and bridge pins to match my Taylor. This guitar is incredible with a few upgrades. Out of the box I'd say 4 stars. With a few upgrades, you will have a hard time finding a guitar that sounds better sub thousand range.Maybe better woods, but won't have the sound. I'd buy this guitar over and over again. The rosewood was nice and dark, looks great and the fit & finish were perfect. Pics don't do it justice.

      Comments about Yamaha FS830 Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar as an "open box" blemished instrument. I'd heard from some well places sources that these guitars were amazing for the price and they were dead on. Now I'm going to have to get one of the dreadnoughts.

        Comments about Yamaha FS830 Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

        I bought the smaller FS version because I wanted to make sure I played this thing all the time and, though I'm tall, I find dreadnoughts uncomfortable (I had access to an FG730 in the past). The size is great, the sound is great, and this is a beautiful looking instrument. I had planned on the natural finish, but it was backordered and the salesperson told me dusk sun red was beautiful. The picture does not do it justice. It doesn't only sound good, but it calls me to pick it up. This is a fabulous starter guitar.
