Top-Selling Acoustic Guitar Now in New Small Body Shape

FS700S & FSX700SC


NASHVILLE — Yamaha's famed FG line of folk guitars has long represented incredible value and playability, a tradition furthered with the introduction of the FS700S and FSX700SC.

The new FS700S is a smaller-body version of the world's most successful solid top acoustic guitar, the FG700S, and offers full tone in a guitar shape that offers less bulk and is perfect for students, travelers and women. The new FSX700SC features Yamaha's impeccable build quality with an added cutaway and a one-way System 55T piezo/preamp system that includes a tuner, three-band EQ and an adjustable mid frequency slider. Both models feature solid Sitka spruce tops and die-cast tuners and represent phenomenal values.

"The FS700S and FSX700SC are perfect for people with smaller builds who want all the sound and features of a great guitar in a more comfortable size," says Dennis Webster, marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars. "We now have our FG-inspired 700, 720 and 730 models in a number of shapes and sizes to fit every playing style."
