The FG820NT is every bit the classic Yamaha FG – from the modified dreadnought body to the workhorse spec designed to play, sound and look great and the fantastic Yamaha setup. FG’s have always been about making a great acoustic guitar, and the latest model is no exception. Features a solid sitka spruce top, nato back and sides and a rosewood fretboard.

FEATURES

Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing
A new 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.
Yamahas engineers have achieved this sound by utilising 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, 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.

50 Years of History
The history of Yamahas FG series started in 1966 with the release of the FG180 and FG150. Over the 50 years since its introduction, we have developed and produced several generations of FG – all of which have made FG the ideal acoustic for contemporary players.
In all, there have been over 200 FG models since 1966.

Made in Yamaha
Every aspect of an FG is crafted to make a better guitar. From painstakingly cured and dried woods to beautiful hand-sprayed finishes and detailed quality control checks each and every FG is made to be a lifelong partner.
