What Haworth Guitars say:
The Yamaha FS830 Acoustic Guitar is an awesome FS Acoustic Guitar model by Yamaha.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Yamaha FS830 Guitar's smaller concert size which feels easy and comfortable to play and is great for traveling musos, fingerpickers or for guitarists with a slighter build, it's warm-sounding solid spruce top with rosewood back and sides, it's scalloped bracing which lightens the load on the tone-woods allowing for an even richer tone. We also love it's great price point which wont break the bank for a quality acoustic guitar by Yamaha.
What Yamaha has to say:
Rich overtones and improved sustain thanks to the rosewood back and sides deliver improved sound through greater ‘depth’. The appearance, with abalone inlay around the sound hole, is more luxurious and an obvious step-up. The small and thin body is perfect not only for female/young players but for intermediate to upper level finger-picking style players.
