The new Yamaha FG830 acoustic guitar has louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis with the development of the new scalloped bracing patterns. In addition to warmer and stronger sound thanks to the mahogany back and sides, the body binding and fretboard binding are cream plastic, for a nice upgraded look. The small and thin body is perfect not only for small or young players but for intermediate to upper level finger-picking style players. Every aspect of the FG830 model 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. Yamaha's FG830 series is also available in a variety of colors, so you're able to find the perfect one to suit your style!

I'm not a hardcore guitar player by any stretch but I've owned some high end acoustic guitars in my time.
The FG830 is not a high priced guitar but it delivers.
It's bright & loud with great sustain.
The action is low and easy without any adjustment.
The hard case is good quality & the tuner does the job.
Delivery was fast.
This is my first transaction with Austin Bazaar & all in all, it has been a very positive experience.
