One of a Kind
George Tse., 01.02.2021
This Guitar is really One of a Kind! The Sound, the Quality and the detailed finish are that of a 2k-3k Euro Instrument. The Sound is simply amazing!!! I replaced my FG720 with this FG830 and boy let me tell you, it is a whole new League!!.. You just wanna play and play and play again.
Seriously Yamaha and the FG830 is proof and quality instruments, don't need to be expensive!!.. There is no excuse for why other manufacturers price their models so high with sometimes less the sound quality of this Yamaha..
I need to mentioned the smooth conclusion and fast delivery of my order, with Thomann. Reliable as always and from packaging, communication, till the delivery.
If some of you flirt with the thought of purchasing one, don't believe any review blindly, go out to a music store and try this master piece out, see for yourself, and then come back and put your order through.

Un acierto
JohnBox, 12.08.2019
Me encanta esta guitarra. Es la primera acústica que me compré y la verdad es que sigo tocándola y me sigue encantando como el primer día que la tuve. Yamaha hace unas guitarras acústicas de calidad y se nota.
Es suave y cómoda al tacto, tiene el tamaño adecuado y un color precioso. En cuanto al sonido no tengo ninguna queja, es cremoso, resonante, no suena estridente en ningún momento y sacas unos sonidos preciosos. He tocado muchos estilos de música con esta guitarra (los posibles que se pueden tocar con una acústica, no hablo de tocar metal con ella sino cosas rollo pop, blues, country, indie, algo de rock acústico... y suena genial en todos los estilos).
El clavijero es sólido y suave al cambiar las cuerdas. y los acabados están genial.
Las únicas pegas que le veo (realmente es solo una ya que la otra siempre depende de gustos claro) es por la dureza de las cuerdas que vienen de fábrica, pero cada uno tiene su estilo y su gusto. La otra contra es que solo tiene una perilla de sujeción en la parte trasera (en las acústicas 100% es lo normal), por lo que hay que comprar otra perilla para poder poner una cinta para tocar de pie, eso supone tener que taladrar la guitarra cerca de la zona del mástil para colocarla. Pero sin problemas, en youtube hay mucha gente que te enseña a hacerlo bien y mientras que no toques partes delicadas de la guitarra y lo hagas con cuidado no hay porque haber problema. Si no te atreves (es normal, yo la tengo ya 3 años y sigo sin atreverme) siempre puedes colocar la cinta en la sujeción trasera y con un cordón sujetar el otro extremo del cinturón en la zona del clavijero y ale, a tocar.
Contentísimo con esta guitarra!!

Muy buena relacion precio/calidad
natx, 27.07.2017
La guitarra es preciosa. Un tono/color muy agradable para mi gusto, Ni rojizo, ni amarillento/naranja.
La guitarra está y bien fabricada y terminada.
Como defecto, y no lo termino de entender... me pregunto porque a una guitarra fabricada con buenos materiales en cuanto al instrumento en sí, los elementos más pequeños y baratos, son de plástico y de bastante baja calidad y terminación. Me refiero a los bastoncitos (pines) que sujetan las cuerdas al puente, la selleta y la cejuela donde apoyan las cuerdas son bastante cutres. En mi caso por poco dinero los he sustituido todos por elementos de hueso y han quedado perfectos.
Otro punto negativo es la acción de las cuerdas, sobre todo se hace notar en el primer traste. Es excesiva y se hace realmente incomoda de tocar. No tiene mucho sentido. Es un ajuste sencillo y debería llegar al cliente mas ajustada, entiendo que cada guitarrista tiene su forma de hacer y sus gustos, y así es la forma facilona de ecitar problemas, pero está claro que la altura es inadecuada, a mi forma de ver.
Tras solucionar estos pequeños problemas y llevar un tiempo tocandola, he de decir que estoy muy contento con ella y muy satisfecho,
El sonido es muy bueno, tiene armónicos y un buen volumen tanto tocando con púa como con los dedos.
Espero haber sido de utilidad opinando sobre el producto.
Un saludo. Natxo.

Un sans faute pour un prix accessible
Alpha-185, 12.01.2021
Une très bonne guitare pour jouer a la maison ou même en bar, une très bonne sonorité avec un changement de cordes nécessaire (comme beaucoup de guitare, les cordes d'origine était à mon gout un peu trop "dur").

Je recommande les yeux fermés, un achat qui va faire plusieurs années sans soucis.
