Yamaha FGX5 Red Label Western Body All Solid Acous

Product Information

Made by Yamaha in Hamamatsu, Japan, the FGX5 Red Label is a dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar that features an A.R.E. treated solid Sitka spruce top and scalloped top bracing to help deliver a rich midrange and low-frequency response. Yamaha has paired the FGX5's Sitka top with solid mahogany back and sides for a boost of warmth, more woody tone and to bolster the midrange. The FGX5 Red Label dreadnought has also been equipped with the new for 2019 Atmosfeel 3-way pickup system, which mixes piezo, mic and contact sensor pickups for a full, natural-sounding plugged-in sound.

In defining the sound of FG Red Label guitars, Yamaha's intention was to offer a warm tone that would be ideal for modern folk music and singer/songwriters. With careful measurement and experimentation, their design team made several refinements to the bracing that would enhance low-frequency response without compromising durability. These changes are optimized for the natural characteristics of the tonewoods, and for each body silhouette.
