My first acoustic guitar was Yamaha F310, I love it, the action is good, just a comfort play, sound also good but as I bought it used, it came with scratches. So a few years later I decided to make an upgrade, something new and better sounding, so I went with Yamaha again and have no regrets at all.
For this money this guitar is a great piece. Sounds really great, I tried alot more expensive guitars and this one compares to them. The only thing is that you have to tweak string action a little bit, but when you're done - pure joy.
I'm playing Blues, Funk, Folk, some acoustic rock covers. This guitar is good not only for strumming, but also it is great to play some fingerstyle songs!
The best strings that I think suit this guitar are Daddario 11-52, the best match I reached so far.
If your budget let's you get this guitar, order it without a doubt.
This is a review of the Yamaha FG830 NT. Had one these popular Dreadnoughts many years ago and foolishly parted with it. Always missed it. With Yamaha's 2016 release of the 50th year anniversary models, the time was right for me the buy again. The 2016 FG830 has improved the build with Scalloped Bracing and rosewood back and sides. Looks wise, the binding is of a vintage cream colour and the sound hole features abalone inlay. The instrument looks beautiful and is finished to a high standard. Mine was nicely set-up right out of the box. Playability is fantastic. Modern slim neck, satin finish, plays fast and easy. Sound is where the FG830 shines.This is a lot of quality tone for the price. The Dynamic range is very impressive. It has the boomy low end you would expect but its high end is crisp and clear. The mids are also great, the rosewood and the new bracing giving a round nice punch. This is "the number 1 sold acoustic guitar of all time" with good reason. Highly recommended.
