The FG800 features a traditional dreadnought body shape, which is known for its balanced tone, strong projection, and versatility across different musical styles. The body is made of solid spruce for the top, while the back and sides are made of laminated NATO (also known as Eastern Mahogany) or mahogany, depending on the specific version of the FG800.
The solid spruce top contributes to the guitar’s clear and vibrant sound, with a balanced tone and good projection. The choice of tone wood for the back and sides can affect the overall tonal characteristics, with mahogany offering a warmer and more focused sound compared to NATO.
The FG800 has a NATO or mahogany neck, depending on the version, with a comfortable profile that makes it easy to play. The fingerboard is made of rosewood, which provides a smooth surface for effortless fretting and playing.
