The Yamaha FS830 is a grand auditorium size acoustic guitar. Smaller than a dreadnought, most players find the FS820 to be very comfortable, and it produces a smooth, sweet sound with strong mid-range. The FS model body is 10mm slimmer than that of the FG body, offering increased comfort and playability with no loss of volume or bass.

Perfect for home, studio, or stage, the FS830 has all the traditional appointments you are looking for.  The solid Spruce top, complemented by mahogany back and sides produce a warm tone filled with all the subtleties you want in an acoustic Grand Auditorium-style guitar. The Yamaha FS830 Acoustic Guitar is a perfect choice for singer/songwriter performers as well as student level players.

The solid Mahogany neck sports a fast, thin profile that is easy and comfortable to play. The 20 fret rosewood fingerboard has binding around the edges for a clean look and smooth feel. The hardware is rounded out premium sealed die-cast tuners with for tuning accuracy and stability. Case not included.

I would buy this guitar again


As a new guitar learner, I needed a lot of help and advice in choosing my first guitar. Anthony was extremely helpful, patient, and encouraging. By the end of my time at Sam Ash I could not wait to begin practicing. The Yamaha FS830 has a beautiful tone and sounds like a more expensive instrument.



Beautiful Appearance with Disappointing Sound


This FS830 Tobacco Sunburst is one of the most beautiful guitars I have ever seen. Every detail of its construction, even the place at the nut where the neck and head stock binding come together, was perfectly executed by the craftsman who made it. Neck geometry and other measures of construction goodness were also perfect. I am sadly at a loss to explain why the guitar was so profoundly lacking in the beautiful tone that is often present in moderately priced Yamaha guitars. It was an instant "nope" at first strum. I did spend some time trying to figure out what was wrong, but was unable to pinpoint anything I would be able to easily change, other than to put on a set of brighter strings. I don't have enough data yet, but summarizing over this guitar and the two FG730S's and several FG700S's I have owned, my working hypothesis is that either the laminated rosewood back and sides or some other aspect of the FS830 construction yields a less resonate guitar than the standard FS or FG800, with laminated nato back and sides. My research is far from conclusive, but I won't be special ordering any laminated-rosewood-back-and-sides or fully bound Yamaha guitars until I play some that sound a lot better than the ones I have owned or played thus far. I hope I'm wrong, but for now I'm convinced that the basic FS800 or FG800 is the way to go if nice sound is what you're hoping for.



I really enjoy playing this guitar.


Works fine.
