    Yamaha FG820-12 - "A Great Guitar--what a 12-string should be!" has images

    09/29/18

    My musical style is one I call "psychedelic Country Gospel. Think of a hybrid of the Eagles, Statler Brothers, and a little bit of John Denver mixed in. I basically strum but I also do some arpeggiated flatpicking along with some hammer-ons. This …

    10/20/17

    Yamaha FG800 - "The Best Deal in Retail Acoustic Guitars" has images

    12/23/16

    The Yamaha FG-800 is Yamaha's upgrade and replacement for the FG-700s, the best selling acoustic guitar of all time. They changed the bracing so it would have deeper bass. Now it sounds more like a Martin and less like a Taylor. I don't think it's…

    Yamaha FG-200 - "On the Nippon Gakki (Japanese made) models"

    11/25/15

    I was given this guitar in 1978 due to a badly bent neck, a common problem in all the guitars made in the same factory, probably an unfortunate selection of neck wood. I recommend 10/52 gauge, never tune high, if you use open tunings always go dow…

    Yamaha FG700S - "Best 200 i have spent"

    11/01/11

    The Yamaha FG-700 S was the one of the first guitar I ever owned, and I've had it for a long time now. The quality of sound that you get from this guitar is way beyond what you pay for. The action on this guitar is good, and it doesn't come out of tu…

    Yamaha FG-180-1 - " good folk guitar"

    04/30/11

    A good Japanese folk guitar from the '70s without cutaway nor amplification. UTILIZATION Nice neck, a bit thick for a folk guitar (it was recommended to me for that, because I used to play classical guitar), balanced sound. SOUNDS I use it to pla…
