In this article, we will look at the Yamaha FG830C Acoustic Electric Guitar.

This is one of the best guitars released in the market by Yamaha.

The guitar has great qualities that has helped it receive great response from many guitarists both amateurs and experts.

The guitar finds its roots from a long legacy of amazing FG “folk guitar” that were initially acoustic guitars only.

This makes it an incredible choice guitar as a beginner as it is not only easy to play but also affordable.

There are countless number of qualities associated with this guitar but in this article, we will only list down the most important ones.


Scalloped Bracing

For a beginner or someone who knows nothing or very little about guitars, the scalloped bracing might have very little meaning to them.

However, for an expert, they know that this is a very important feature.

This is because it contributes a lot to the sound projection of the guitar.

In this case, the scalloped bracing has given FG830C a strong and loud sound in the low-to-mid-ranges.

At the same time, the guitar sports a cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology that Yamaha R&D Division developed.

This sound has been achieved by Yamaha’s engineers by utilizing analysis and simulation resulting in the best bracing design.

With this guitar, it is clear that there is no dependence on tradition or guesswork.

This analysis is what gave birth to the new scalloped bracing pattern that resulted in a new and ideal acoustic structure.

As a result, this maintains the top board durability and at the same time, the most sound you can ever get from Yamaha FG.


Pickup System

This guitar works well with System 66 which features an under-saddle piezo pickup that was developed by Yamaha.

The controls include a 3-band EQ, a precision chromatic tuner, and an adjustable mid-range frequency control.

With all these combinations, an optimum sound projection is a sure thing.

You can use the system with A4 size batteries which are very easy to obtain.

Unlike many other systems that need electricity to run, you can use this system even in remote areas.

As long as you have access to the A4 batteries, you will be good to go.

The batteries provide a stable power supply resulting in an improved sound quality


Great Tone

The Solid Sitka top chosen by Yamaha has highly improved FG830’s look and tone.

The Sitka spruce top produces articulate, well-rounded sound with excellent projection.

These are the qualities that have highly contributed to the popularity of this guitar throughout the industry.

The solid-wood top is an added advantage as it means the guitar will age gracefully.


We all look for quality and great results in every product we go for.

It is for this reason that Yamaha ensured their FG830C guitar gave its user nothing but the best.

The guitar sports harmonics and greater tonal balance that becomes even better with time.

At the same time, the improved scalloped bracing resulted in a more convenient top movement.
