Yamaha FS830 DSR Concert Acoustic Dusk Sun Red
The compact concert size body is perfect for female and younger players as well as intermediate to upper level finger-picking style players.
Drawing on Yamaha’s fifty years of experience building guitars, the FS series shares features a 25″ short scale and compact, grand auditorium concert size bodies. Delivering a tight, focused and punchy sound, the FS830 is not only a great strummer, it also provides perfect articulation for intricate playing styles.
The new Yamaha FS830 is also louder and stronger in the lower to mid range frequencies. Thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha Guitar R&D Division, their exhaustive analysis, feedback and simulations resulted in a new scalloped bracing design that was focused purely on sound rather than tradition or guesswork.
This new pattern delivers more volume, more projection, increased low end response and a bigger tone., the bracing also allows the resonance of the guitar to sit closer to the middle resulting in a bigger impact on both tone and play-ability.
The FS830 is a superb guitar. Rich harmonic overtones and improved sustain thanks to the rosewood back and sides deliver improved sound through greater depth. The appearance with multi-ply binding along with the genuine abalone inlay around the sound hole is simply luxurious and adds to the overall feeling that this guitar should actually cost more than its modest asking price. The sensuous and moody dark sun red burst is simply gorgeous.
