Quick Overview

Yamaha FG840 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

MODEL: Yamaha | FG840

    New scalloped bracing boosts the low end and adds richness to harmonic mid overtones.

    The flamed maple back and sides of the traditional Western-bodied FG840 Dreadnought provide distinctive, exotic and high-end appearance. The result is a sound that is not only transparent nut allows each individual note in a chord to ring clear. The solid spruce top also gives you reliable, well-balanced projection. Other appointments include a abalone with black and white inlaid double rosette, tortoise pattern pickguard, cream body binding, die-cast chrome tuners and black ABS bridge pins with white dots. Case sold separately.

    Modern, Yet Classic Looks

    The Yamaha FG840 gives you the traditional vibe from the outside. It looks classy, attractive, and also has a premium feel. The guitar is built well too, thanks to the strong materials used and the great finish that adds to the durability of the guitar. In other words, the guitar can withstand minor bumps and dings without getting blemished or scratched.

    Despite adapting well to new trends and technology, the guitar still keeps the spirit of yesteryear FG guitars. The dreadnought body shape and size, urea saddle, rosewood bridge, matte neck finish, etc. would constantly remind you that you’re handling an FG.

    Great Sound

    The solid spruce stop, which most people have come to learn and love in acoustic guitars, adds to the durability and sound of the FG840. The solid tonewood ensures the guitar sounds better as it ages. In other words, the guitar emits greater and enhanced sound with frequent use.

    Thanks to the maple laminate on the guitar’s sides and back, you get a more balanced and transparent sound. This ensures you have concise and clear notes for finger picking or strumming. Though the sustenance lacks a bit compared to other FG series models, you get the strong and loud sound that can easily hit the lows and mids.

    Moreover, the Yamaha FG840 has a fresh scalloped bracing pattern that maintains the durability of the top board while making sure the guitar offers the best possible sound. Not to mention, the advanced technology used in the guitar makes it a real upgrade over its predecessors.

    Yamaha’s R&D division has worked hard to come up with the cutting-edge acoustic analysis tech that has been injected into the FG840. This was achieved by employing simulation techniques and rigorous analyses.

    This analysis resulted in the creation of the unique scalloped bracing pattern, which is a new and perfect acoustic structure for maintaining the top board’s durability and extracting optimal sound from the guitar.
