From the first strum, you’ll get it — the Yamaha FG820-12 Dreadnought 12 String Acoustic Guitar performs way above its modest price tag. This 12-string acoustic guitar’s solid spruce top ensures a warm, strong sound that’s enhanced beautifully by its mahogany back and sides. You’ll love the feel of this guitar’s Standard-shaped neck, which is topped by an easy-playing rosewood fingerboard. You also get eye-catching cream-colored body and fingerboard binding. Whether you’re a beginner that’s looking for a quality first instrument, or a longtime player searching for a top-notch backup, the FG820-12 is a great choice.
Solid spruce top for great tone
Yamaha chose a solid spruce top for their FG820-12, due to its look and tone. Spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops. And because it’s made from solid wood, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by. Beyond that, the FG820-12 boasts scalloped bracing, resulting in a larger low end and more projection.
