  • What buyers say about Yamaha FG830 Solid Top Folk Guitar

    I have played many acoustic guitars from Martins and Guilds with Brazilian Rosewood sides and backs, to Taylors, etc., and have been fortunate enough to own some and use them in recording.

    The FG830 is a beautiful guitar and I am happy that it is back in stock after the holidays.

    This guitar is a great choice for anyone looking for a guitar in this price range or for someone who wants a more expensive guitar.

    This guitar is a great choice for anyone looking for a guitar in this price range or for someone who wants a more expensive guitar.

    I was concerned about the condition of this guitar since it was listed as "Good" on Amazon Warehouse. Since this is the third tier of rating, I was concerned about the condition.

    Common Questions


    Which is the better fgx830 or fgx830?


    The old model is FGX830c, which is now even better.


    I'm a fan of the guitar sound, but I see a little seam going across the top dividing it into two halves. Is it really solid top?


    It is a solid top guitar, but it is hard to find a tree big enough to cut a single piece top out.


    Is this for right and left-handed players?


    There should be a left handed version.


    I am buying a gift for my husband, and I am wondering if there is a difference between nato, mahogany, and rosewood?


    I bought the Rosewood because it has a brighter tone and it's better for me because I play mellow jazz.


    The other fg830's are bundled with accessories, but are not dreadnoughts. What to buy?


    If you want a bigger sound, you should buy a dreadnought size guitar. The concert size doesn't give you that bass feel when you play certain songs or play certain ways.
