FG / FGX Series

It All Starts Here

When it was introduced in 1966, the FG proved that a great acoustic guitar doesn't have to cost a fortune. With a focus on great playability, musical tone and outstanding build quality, the original FG180 became a classic. Now, 50 years since the introduction of FG acoustics, its tone is better than ever, so no matter where you are on your musical journey, it all starts here!
