The Yamaha FG335 incorporates a classic dreadnought body shape to maximize tone and volume; it's a vintage style that's well-suited to beginner strummers yet can also handle delicate fingerpicking and hybrid players. In this case, the top is made of laminated spruce with laminated Meranti for the back and sides. Meranti is an Asian mahogany replacement that offers some of mahogany's color and tonal properties for a much lower cost. Made in Taiwan Kaohsiung Factory - The exact year can not be determined because the serials repeat every decade.
