Fantastic Tone! I mean, seriously good. Deep resonant lows, powerful and solid mids, and the highs have sort of that Martin sizzle to them. Plenty of power to boot for a small guitar. Just a wonderful guitar, and it is a great pickup system as well!
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. 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 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. This smaller body version is exactly the same thing you’d expect to get in a smaller package. Great for folk and finger style play, but also holds up well for traditional flatpicking when a smaller guitar is desired!
