Yamaha FGX800C Natural Electro-Acoustic Guitar

When it was introduced in 1966, the FG proved that a great acoustic guitar doesn't have to cost a fortune. With a focus on great playability, musical tone and outstanding build quality, the original FG180 became a classic. Now, 50 years since the introduction of FG acoustics, its tone is better than ever, so no matter where you are on your musical journey, it all starts here!

FGX800C Guitar

Derived from the FG800, which has a solid spruce top and nato/okoume back and sides, the FGX800C has a cutaway body and an electric system. The Yamaha proprietary undersaddle piezo pickup and System66 analog preamp ensure solid, plugged-in performance.

Scalloped Bracing

The FG/FGX Series 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 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 scalloped bracing pattern, an ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound.
