High-value Folk Acoustic-electric
Genuine Sitka spruce top for great tone
Yamaha chose a solid Sitka spruce top for their FSX800C for both its look and tone. Sitka spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops throughout the industry. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by. Yamaha also improved their scalloped bracing on the FSX800C to allow for more top movement, resulting in a larger low end and more projection.
Nato back and sides
The FSX800C sports a body made from nato. This wood is really impressing strummers at Irvine Art & Music Center for its warm tone that is very reminiscent of mahogany. Its rich sound enhances the midrange frequencies while maintaining top-end clarity, making it great for strumming. The sound is gentle and full, which is ideal for vocal accompaniment. Combined with the lively and defined sound of the spruce top, you'll love the rich tone you get from the Yamaha FSX800C folk acoustic-electric.
Yamaha System-66 electronics
The Yamaha FSX800C acoustic-electric guitar also has you covered when it's time to take the stage. The System-66 pickup and preamp electronics deliver the true sound of your guitar's spruce and nato tonewoods. The onboard preamp features a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids to help notch out unwanted feedback. It also boasts a fast and reliable tuner to keep your performances sounding great. And the battery compartment is easily accessed on the upper bout of the guitar for quick changes.
