I recently purchased the Yamaha FG830 acoustic guitar from the Sam Ash store in Westbury, NY and I LOVE this guitar!!! It far exceeded my wildest expectations all around for the low price I paid for it. The sound is exquisite and so is the guitar itself, with its beautifully polished wood body and high quality strings. In addition, it is so easy to play for someone like myself that hasn't picked up a guitar in a while. I've owned two other Yamaha guitars in the past and this FG830 proved to me that Yamaha guitars are still the best quality and "bang for the buck", and I am so happy that I made this purchase!
