Genuine Sitka spruce top for great tone

Yamaha chose a solid Sitka spruce top for their FSX830C for both its look and tone. Sitka spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops throughout the industry. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by. And Yamaha improved their scalloped bracing on the FSX830C to allow for more top movement, resulting in a larger low end and more projection.

Rosewood back and sides

The FSX830C sports a body made from rosewood. This wood is a favorite among flatpickers and fingerpickers at Irvine Art & Music for its warm tone with plenty of harmonic content. Its rich sound enhances the lowest fundamental as well as top-end clarity, delivering a punchy tone that is great for getting through a mix. The sound is very fast to react, too, so every nuance of your playing is heard with definition. Combined with the lively and defined sound of the spruce top, you'll love the rich and wide-ranging tone you get from the Yamaha FSX830C folk acoustic-electric.

Yamaha System-66 electronics

The Yamaha FSX830C acoustic-electric guitar also has you covered when it's time to take the stage. The System-66 pickup and preamp electronics deliver the true sound of your guitar's spruce and rosewood tonewoods. The onboard preamp features a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids to help notch out unwanted feedback. It also boasts a fast and reliable tuner to keep your performances sounding great. And the battery compartment is easily accessed on the upper bout of the guitar for quick changes.
