Modern Inspiration and Timeless Design
The FG heritage extends back to the 1966 release of the FG180, the first production acoustic guitar by Yamaha. In the more than half-century since, we have balanced traditional guitar craft with a spirit of constant refinement, pursuing our vision of the ideal folk guitar.
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.
Powerful Vintage Tone
A custom-treated, Sitka spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides deliver genuine aged-wood tone and sustain.
A scalloped bracing pattern offers louder, more balanced tone.
The original Yamaha FS concert shape is a good fit for players who prefer a smaller body and slightly brighter sound to complement strumming and fingerpicking with 1960s aesthetics and modern craftsmanship culminating over 50 years of Yamaha guitar development.
