Perfect for beginners but not only. 

The Yamaha FG800 is with no doubt one of the best beginner’s acoustic guitar out there. It provides great playability at an unbelievably low price which makes it a really good bargain. You will be surprised to know that the FG800 actually has a solid Sitka Spruce top which is not a standard in its price range and despite the fact that Nato is not really a superb tone wood, the guitar sounds really nice. Go Try it on our player and you’ll hear why we and so many guitar players out there like it so much. You might wanna check the Yamaha FG800 even if you are not a beginner but someone who would just like to have another guitar lying around the house or one to take on the road. It is no wonder really that the Yamaha FG range is a worldwide bestseller.
