Derived from the FS830, the FSX830C is a small body cutaway acoustic-electric guitar, which is a nice alternative to a bulkier dreadnought or jumbo-style guitar. This smaller body is sometimes referred to as a concert style, and is well suited to players of any genre. Played acoustically or plugged in, the FSX830C sounds fantastic! The FSX830C has deluxe features including a solid spruce top, rosewood back and sides, mother of pearl fret markers, and an abalone soundhole inlay. This guitar looks as great as it sounds. Quality materials, outstanding construction, and stunning value make the FSX830C a great choice for any player.
The compact body combines wit the solid spruce top and rosewood back/sides to give the FSX830C polished appearance and clarity of tone. Yamaha build quality comes standard.
S.R.T. Pickup System
Yamaha’s proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.
SYSTEM66 Preamp System
System 66 features an under-saddle SRT pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.
Scalloped X-type bracing design. This design dramatically improves the instrument’s transient response for transparent tone and attack.
Yamaha’s original L-block design offers faster transfer of string vibration to the guitar’s body for greater depth and tone while enhancing stability around the neck joint.
