"I never take the time to write about my experience with any company. I mean, why should you not expect that a company would provide a good product and service. But in the case of Kraft Music, I feel compelled to let others know how exceptional this company is. This is a company who still does business the old fashioned way. I cannot recommend them enough and I do to anyone looking for quality instruments at a great price." - Brian, MA
"Your service, shipping, and prompt updates via email were excellent and I thank you very much. I am one satisfied customer and looking forward to doing business again." - Del, TX
The FGX series is the acoustic-electric version of the FG series. Traits inherited from Yamaha's Handcrafted L-series such as non-scalloped X bracing and reverse-L block neck attachment, have made it an instrument of high quality. Its clear, bright tone is just at home playing accompaniment as it is playing lead, and a newly designed A.R.T. pickup system with on-board 3-band equalizer and adjustable mid-range frequency offers superior sound quality. Here are some of the great features of the FGX730SC:
A.R.T. Pickup System
A.R.T.(Acoustic Resonance Transducer) technology - Newly developed contact pickup and a unique multilayer structure achieves optimum dynamic balance. Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars have consistently used piezoelectric pickups to reproduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezoelectric pickups tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused distortion. To achieve ideal playability, Yamaha had to improve the way that these dynamics were controlled. To provide a solution to this issue, the new pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials. This dampens excessive vibration from the topboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance.
A.R.T. Preamp System (System56CB) for FGX730SC
1-way configuration. This configuration features one main pickup system consisting of two pickups underneath the saddle. The 3-band equalizer gives the ability to control the mid-range for versatile sound creation that meets the musician's needs. The system is also equipped with an onboard tuner for optimum usability.
Non-scallop, X-type bracing design. Delivers deep lows full of presence that are unique to the Yamaha sound, and a clear upper end. Response is clear and tight.
Real mother-of-pearl inlay on the headstock is standard on all models and adds a touch of class not found in this price range.
Yamaha's original L block design offers faster transfer of string vibration to the guitar's body for greater depth and tone while enhancing stability around the neck joint.
The large bridge offers greater transfer of string vibration to the body producing a tight and clear mid-range with full, balanced tone. Smooth lines and edges keep the playing surface unencumbered.
