This year, Yamaha is celebrating 50 years of guitar manufacturing. To honour their rich history, Yamaha have created the FG180-50th Anniversary Limited Edition Model.
The guitar has been developed based on the specs from the original 1966 model, recreating a modern version by applying Yamaha’s latest technological expertise.
By treating the top board with Yamaha’s exclusive A.R.E. process, which gives the instrument a rich and vintage quality tone, Yamaha reproduces the rich sound of an FG180 that has been played for many years. Adding to the vintage style, the red label inside includes a piano image that was only seen on the labels of the very earliest models.
The shape and thickness of the pickguard follow those of the original too. The body is a solid wood construction so players can enjoy the evolving sound that develops as the instrument is played over time. The FG180-50th Anniversary Limited Edition Model will be in stores in September.
