Yamaha Canada Music is proud to introduce the FG9 series of steel-string acoustic guitars.
Specifically designed for singer-songwriters pursuing the highest level of expression, these
dreadnought-style guitars are handcrafted in Japan and feature Adirondack spruce tops, a choice
of Indian rosewood (FG9 R) or mahogany (FG9 M) backs and sides.
“When designing the FG9, we employed cutting-edge acoustic measurement and 3D structural
measurement processes to more fully understand how physical structure affects acoustic
characteristics, and numerous prototypes were built by our custom shop’s skilled luthiers,” said
Osamu Ito, Yamaha Brand Director. “This level of scientific measurement and analysis, combined
with innovative craftsmanship, is unique to Yamaha.”
The results are guitars that deliver the outstanding projection characteristic of dreadnought-style
instruments, while at the same time providing exceptional clarity and detailed articulation. This
unique combination of penetrating projection and extraordinary clarity distinguishes FG9 guitars
from all other instruments in their class.
Singer-songwriters in particular will appreciate that projection and clarity, as well as the guitars’
remarkable responsiveness to playing dynamics—whether they prefer the deep lows and
sparkling highs of Indian rosewood or the warmth and accentuated midrange of mahogany to
complement their vocal performances. Deluxe appointments and traditional Japanese aesthetic
details such as rope rosettes also ensure that FG9 guitars are as inspiring to behold as they are
to play.
