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.

Well, I never could get that 5mm wrench to work but I finally found the allen wrench that came with the Yamaha and it fit perfectly! I pulled out my calipers and measured it and it is definitely NOT a 5mm like all the websites said. It's a 4mm. Now I have it adjusted and new Light (.012 to .053) strings on it and it plays like butter and sounds great!
The guitar came today, and was packaged nicely. The guitar box was in another bigger box. I eargerly upboxed everything to unveil what is truly a beautiful guitar. There were no dinks or dents and everything was shiny, and in perfect condition. The guitar was way out of tune out of the box, but I used Garage Band and an app on my phone in conjunction to tune it as best as I can. After I received a satisfactory tuning, I begun my initially test. Chords rung out with amazing clarity and warmth. I tested a few scales, and riffs and they all sounded fantastic. Again, I'm still a beginner when it comes to playing the guitar, but have been an avid fan of rock and music in general for eons and know when something sounds great. I played it for a few hours and couldn't even put it down till I realize that it was too late to be playing guitar since this guitar does resonate a very full, loud sound.
In all, if you are a beginner looking for a great first-time guitar or even experienced and want a guitar that sounds great and simultaneously has a great price, then look no further. A guitar is an investment and if you can, you might as well start with something good since it'll encourage you to play more and you won't outgrow this one nearly as quickly as the other "beginner" guitars.
**I will update this review in the coming month as I log more playing time.
