Yamaha FG5 Red Label Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar With Case

Monthly payments available Learn more

Fantastic Tone!  I mean, seriously good.  Deep resonant lows, powerful and solid mids, and the highs have sort of that Martin sizzle to em.  Plenty of power to boot. Several of us at the store here are actually working out selling off a thing or two from our collection to buy one of these for ourselves.  That’s how impressive they are.   

Inspired by the iconic Yamaha "red label" guitars of the 1960s, FG Red Label guitars feature a semigloss finish and high-quality components to deliver a beautiful, vintage aesthetic.  The “5” series like this one are all handmade in Japan.  Top notch quality.  It doesn’t get much better even if you throw thousands of dollars more at a more expensive brand of guitar. 

A high grade custom-treated, Sitka spruce top paired with gorgeous solid mahogany back and sides deliver genuine aged-wood tone and sustain.  And the scalloped bracing pattern offers louder, more balanced tone.

The original Yamaha FG modified dreadnought body delivers a full, punchy low end, well-suited for demanding bluegrass and flatpicking, and the 1960s aesthetics and modern craftsmanship culminate over 50 years of Yamaha guitar development for what is, in our opinion, among the very best of guitars Yamaha has ever produced.

Includes full pro setup, strap button installation, and free shipping within the lower 48 US.
