Yamaha’s FG Red Label Acoustic Guitars

Yamaha’s FG Red Label series of acoustic guitars is inspired by the original FG Red Label acoustic guitars of the 1960s, the company’s very first steel-string guitars.
All models in the FG Red Label line are crafted with solid Sitka spruce tops, mahogany back and sides, and ebony fingerboards. The top is reinforced with scalloped bracing, a specialized latticework to enhance tone and projection. The overall design evokes the look and feel of the original FG Red Label models launched in 1966 under the Nippon Gakki name that preceded the present-day Yamaha brand.
Selected models in this guitar line are equipped with the Yamaha Atmosfeel pickup and preamp system, a hardware innovation endowing the guitar with a uniquely natural plugged-in sound, and the FG Red Label’s top is treated with the company’s proprietary Acoustic Resonance Enhancement. Benefits include increased resonance, longer bass sustain, and greater midrange and high-frequency responsiveness.
