The Yamaha FG3 Red Label Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Natural Matte comes with a Softshell Case.

The Yamaha FG3 Red Label Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Natural Matte features a solid Sitka spruce top that has been given Yamaha's Acoustic Resonance Enhancement A.R.E. treatment paired with scalloped top-bracing to deliver a rich midrange and low frequency response. Its ebony fingerboard and bridge add strength and stability.

Timeless design with modern inspiration

Yamahaƒ??s ƒ??Red Labelƒ?� Folk Guitar series was first launched in 1966 as their first production of steel-string acoustics, which is considered by many as the iconic Yamaha acoustic line. Yamahaƒ??s new Red Label series retains the vintage aesthetic of the original ƒ??60s modelsƒ??with a semi-gloss finish, open-gear tuners, the original V-shaped headstock with the time-honored "tuning fork" logo and, of course, the red label insideƒ??but uses everything Yamaha has refined and developed over their more than half-century of making acoustic guitars.

New scalloped bracing

Yamaha guitars are well known for their balanced sound. However, when defining the voice of Red Label, Yamaha wanted to add more low end for a fuller, warmer tone that would be ideal for solo singer-songwriters and modern folk music. To achieve this, new bracing designs were developed for the FG and FS Red Label guitars, which are optimized for each body shape and the natural characteristics of the tonewoods. The new scalloped bracing delivers plenty of volume and enhances low-frequency response without compromising durability.

Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E)

As tonewoods age, they vibrate more freely and become more resonant, producing a louder, more powerful sound with enhanced high-frequency response and more sustain in the lows and low-mids. Yamahaƒ??s Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) process achieves those same characteristics by using heat, humidity and pressure to simulate the effects of time on the soundboards. The A.R.E. process of accelerating the aging of the wood gives Red Label models the same rich, vintage-quality tone and response of a guitar youƒ??ve been playing for years.
