First launched in the late ‘60s, the most celebrated decade of contemporary music, the Yamaha FG soon developed legendary status captured on stage in the iconic image of Country Joe McDonald playing his classic FG150 at the Woodstock Festival in 1969. Since that time a generation of aspiring guitarists have grow up playing Yamaha folk guitars developing their creativity and passion for music right up to recent times with artists like Jake Bugg making his first festival and TV appearances relying on his trusty workhorse FG700 – the times they are not a changin’…

The FG700MS combines premium specification including solid Sitka spruce top, Nato back and sides, 90degree non-scalloped bracing inspired by the flagship L-Series and Yamaha’s trademark setup with an ultra-thin natural satin finish to create an instrument with a rich, natural sound and incredible feel.

As Yamaha’s longest standing acoustic guitar range, the FGs are synonymous with great sound and superb playability with scores of guitarists depending on them as their acoustics of choice since launch in 1966. FG700MS is a fitting entry point to this classic range.

This guitar has a few small blemishes to the body but, otherwise, has been kept in great condition and plays beautifully.
