The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
An all-Mahogany FS. Using Mahogany for the body binding as well gives this model a warm, woody design to match the distinctive richness in the middle frequencies. The small and thin body is perfect not only for female/young players, but for intermediate to upper level finger-picking style players.
This FS850 has louder and stronger sound in the low to mid ranges, thanks to cutting edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Yamaha's engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork. This analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing pattern, a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the Yamaha FS850 has to offer.
The FS850 body is 10mm slimmer than that of its sister the FG body, offering increased comfort and playability with no loss of volume or bass. Having a body that is easier to hold makes the FS850 more appealing to beginners and smaller guitarists, including female players. In addition, the smaller dimensions and lower propensity to feedback make this FS850 guitar ideal for stage use.

However, please keep in mind when instruments are shipped they can endure temperature changes as well as doing the "shipper shuffle" and therefore minor adjustments may be needed to set up the instrument to your personal preferences after receiving it.
