Acoustic guitar with newly developed pickup system!

Combining the aesthetics of the 1960's with the expert craftsmanship that has been honed over the past 50 years.
The newly developed "Atmosfeel" pickup system is equipped. The airy and natural sound of acoustic guitars is brought out to the line as it should be.
Yamaha's original jumbo body shape delivers rich volume and raw mid-low range sound. Ideal for chord strokes and flatpicking.
The newly developed scalloped bracing produces a warm and powerful sound with deep bass and rich overtones.
The front board is made of A.R.E.-coated Sitka spruce veneer. Mature sound as if it has been played for many years.
Fingerboard, bridge, and bridge pins are ebony.
Made in Japan model produced by highly skilled craftsmen.

<Yamaha's traditional V-shaped head.
The original Yamaha FG head shape is decorated with a tuning fork logo. The truss rod cover is engraved with "Since 1966", which indicates the origin of Yamaha guitars.

<The front board is made of Citka spruce veneer.
The top is a veneer of citrus spruce that has been treated with A.R.E. The top is made of a veneer of citrus spruce. The top is made of A.R.E.-treated Sitka spruce veneer. Although it is new, it has a rich sound as if it has been played for many years, and the warm mid-low frequency range of mahogany wood produces a powerful resonance. The cohesive sound is ideal for chord strokes and rhythmic fingerstyle playing.

<Side and back are made of solid mahogany veneer.
Side and back are made of solid mahogany. The side and back are made of solid mahogany, which produces a warm and rich midrange that is unique to mahogany.

<Cow bone upper and lower bridge pieces
The upper and lower bridge pieces are made of cow bone (#5 grade only). The bone is extremely hard and allows for more effective transmission of sound from the strings to the neck and body. The installation and adjustment of the ox bone nut requires a high level of skill, and each guitar is carefully crafted in Japan by skilled guitar craftsmen.

<Newly developed scalloped bracing
The scalloped bracing used on the FG/FS#800 series has been improved through a combination of pseudo prototyping using the latest acoustic analysis simulation technology and prototyping by wood craftsmen. The scalloped bracing used in the FG/FS#800 series has been optimized to match the characteristics of the wood itself and the FG and FS models to achieve further expansion of the low frequency range.

<A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) processing
Yamaha's proprietary Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) process is applied to the surface plate. By precisely controlling temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the same changes that occur over time in lumber after it has been milled are produced in a short period of time, thereby improving sound transmission and vibration efficiency. A.R.E. processing produces a warm, matured sound with good balance and few annoying overtones, making it sound like a guitar that has been played for many years.

<The newly developed "Atmosfeel" pickup system is installed.
The newly developed Atmosfeel 3-way pickup system consists of three different pickups that reliably capture each frequency range: a piezo sensor in the undersaddle for the mid and low frequencies, a microphone in the preamp for the low frequencies, and a proprietary, extremely thin contact sensor for the high frequencies.

<The Atmosfeel controller is simple and easy to use.
The Atmosfeel's controller section is very simple to operate, allowing the user to mix and match the different pickups and easily create sounds. The master volume knob allows for subtle tonal expression, the mic blend knob adds a boxy feel, and the bass EQ controller allows for adjustment of the peak EQ.

○熟練した技術者により製作されたMade in Japanモデル

ヤマハFGのオリジナルヘッドシェイプには、音叉を模ったロゴをあしらっています。 トラスロッドカバーには、ヤマハギターの原点を示す"Since 1966"を刻印しています。

TopはA.R.E.を施したシトカスプルース単板を採用。 新品でありながら長年弾きこんだかのような豊かな鳴りと、マホガニー材ならではの暖かみのある中低域によるパワフルな響きを実現しています。 まとまりのあるサウンドは、コードストローク、またはリズミックなフィンガースタイルの演奏に最適です。




<A.R.E.(Acoustic Resonance Enhancement)加工>
表板には、ヤマハ独自のAcoustic Resonance Enhancement(A.R.E.)を施しています。温度、湿度、気圧を高精度に制御することにより、製材後長期間を経た木材の経年変化と同様の変化を短期間で生みだすことによって音の伝達と振動効率を上げ、中低音成分の伸びの促進と高音成分の立ち上がりの増大や減衰の高速化を実現。A.R.E.処理を施すことにより、バランスが良く耳障りな倍音成分の少ない熟成された温かみのあるサウンドが得られ、何年も弾き込んだギターのような音を作り出します。


「Atmosfeel」のコントローラー部は、非常にシンプルな操作により各ピックアップを混ぜ合わせ、簡単に音作りが可能。マスターボリュームつまみで繊細な音色の表現を調整し、マイクブレンドつまみで箱鳴り感を加えていきます。Bass EQコントローラーではピークとなるEQが調整可能。
