Acoustic electric guitar fitted with pickups on an FG or FS body with a cutaway. With a pickup sound fits perfectly in a mix, and an easy-to-see chromatic tuner, these guitars are the perfect support when you're beginning to play live. A new sound has been developed for the FG that is louder and stronger in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Yamaha’s engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition, guesswork, or trial and error. From the simulation results, actual prototypes were built to confirm the sound. This analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FG has to offer.
