Yamaha chose a solid Sitka spruce top for their FSX800C for both its look and tone. Sitka spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops throughout the industry. The FSX800C sports a body made from nato. This wood is really impressive with its warm tone; reminiscent of mahogany. Its rich sound enhances the midrange frequencies while maintaining top-end clarity, making it great for strumming.The System-66 pickup and preamp electronics deliver the true sound of your guitar's spruce and nato tonewoods. The onboard preamp features a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids to help notch out unwanted feedback.
