Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreNorth Vancouver, British Columbia
I Originally had a Lower End Martin (DAEX1) and sold it, i went into the North Vancouver location and the Associate recommended me a Yamaha FG800m and from there i was sold on Yamaha Instruments. After owning my FG800m for about 2 years i decided to research into the "Red Label" Made in Japan models and I instantly fell in love with this FG5. I put my deposit down and when it arrived I was amazed at the build and quality this Instrument shows. Its got a super rich tone and great playability. I whole heartedly recommended this guitar for anyone looking for a good quality acoustic
