Wonderful Concert Acoustic from Yamaha
Get incredible tone and playability at an amazing price point with the Yamaha FS800 Concert Acoustic. Featuring a solid spruce top with laminated back and sides, this stellar instrument puts out incredible tone and impressive projection. The smaller concert size of the FS800 is ideal for beginning and emerging players but also a popular choice for finger-picking and recording. Its nato neck capped with walnut is incredibly comfortable and playable — great for chording and lead playing. In addition, scalloped X-bracing provides further support and tonal enhancement — a feature we at Irvine Art & Music Center really appreciate.
Great feel and tone
The FS800 Concert Acoustic is not only smaller than a traditional dreadnought but also thinner, making it ideal for young players. The crisp high-end makes this stellar acoustic ideal for bluegrass, folk, country, or virtually any other style you want to explore. Over the years, finger-pickers have gravitated to the easy-on-the-fingers neck of the FS800. Recording artists also appreciate how well this acoustic translates through the mic with great midrange and high-end tone without the boomy lows that often lead to distortion.
