From the Manufacturer
The Best-Selling Acoustic Guitar of All Time
Yamaha FS Series
Choice woods, the finest craftsmanship and a smaller folk style body make the FS a popular alternative to the larger FG. Precise, smooth response and a sweet, focused tone make this a great choice for recording or fingerpicking.
Designed with a full-sized body depth, the FS Series delivers rich low-end tone that contradicts it's size. It's short scale makes it an excellent choice for guitarists with small hands.
Yamaha FG Series
For over 40 years, millions of musicians have used the Yamaha FG as the perfect tool to express their music. FGs gained the respect due to their quality, dependability, playability and value.
Since it was introduced in the 1960’s, the Yamaha FG has been recognized as simply the best acoustic guitar in its league. The FG is a perfect example of Yamaha’s unique combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern guitar-building techniques. Everything focuses on the same goal: an outstanding playing experience, and the great tone that’s made FG the choice of some of the greatest players in history. Now, the greatest players of the future are choosing it too.
The main purpose of bracing on an acoustic guitar is to strengthen the top against the tension of the strings. By modifying the vibrations of the guitar’s top, the bracing also serves to create the guitar’s tonal signature. Yamaha’s guitars use a non-scalloped X-bracing design with each of the eight braces carefully positioned to tailor the guitar’s sound. The use of non-scalloped bracing ensures your guitar will retain its tone, response, and stability for a lifetime.
Dovetail Neck Joint
The joint between body and neck is essential to an acoustic guitar, not just for physical stability but also for sound. The efficient transfer of vibrations from neck to body is crucial in creating a full and balanced tone. All Yamaha acoustic guitars feature a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint. The precisely crafted joint uses no metal parts and gives the guitar the best neck-to-body contact for outstanding tone along with incredibly strength and stability.
Hand Sprayed Thin Finish
All Yamaha FG & FS guitars feature our signature ultra-thin finish. The perfect combination of advanced finish technology and artisan hand-spraying techniques ensures the rich, high-gloss finish on each guitar is around 0.25 millimeter thin. It provides the minimum restriction of vibrations of the wood, and a louder, fuller tone while remaining incredibly strong and resilient.

Perfect action for a beginner
Quality instrument for really cheap!
Been playing for 3 weeks and I have yet to find one
No wolf notes, nor anything else. Solid Solid instrument
Then after doing some research in March I had a guitar shop put in a bone saddle (the white part that the strings bend over right before they go into the body) and I couldn't believe my ears! What was already a great sounding guitar now sounds as good as anything up into the $800 range, easily. All for roughly $270 ($180 guitar + $90 saddle).
To me, this thing is an investment. They say that guitars age kind of like wine.Read more ›
-- Stays in tune extremely well
-- Good intonation overall
-- Good projection and tone
-- Quality fit and finish
-- Durable: mine has served me well for a number of years now. (But bear in mind: like any stringed instrument, this guitar requires moderately careful handling and proper storage. Use it, don't abuse it.)
-- Action a bit high on the upper frets
-- Bass tone a bit weak once you leave first-position cowboy-chord country
-- Truss rod doesn't turn smoothly
Certainly, any beginner* should be delighted with this guitar, and more experienced guitarists on a budget should be quite happy with it.
* If this is your first guitar, you should also consider purchasing a guitar stand, case, chromatic tuner, picks, extra strings, string winder w/ bridge pin puller, capo, and a polishing cloth.
After a good discussion of what my playing level was and where I wanted to go with my guitar experience he recommended the Yamaha FG700S as a top level entry instrument.
Immediately after picking the guitar up my playing improved, mainly due to the strings actually being close to the fret board as opposed to a few inches away. I have been playing it pretty solidly every day for the past 4 months and have really enjoyed this guitar.
Sound stays true during light strumming as well as through hard and fast pieces. No real distortion of the sound during hard playing. Unit has a nice full sound as well for a wide variety of songs. Guitar comes with coated strings, so is nice and easy to play, as well tuning stays true. I am a bit of a nut so I tune it frequently, but it is not really needed that frequently as the unit maintains its tuning quite well.
For me this has been the perfect affordable beginner guitar.
