Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing

The latest series of the FS range offers a richer sound with better projection (particularly in the low to mid range) thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis techniques developed by our Guitar Research team, where a mix of real-world trials and detailed computer-based modelling and simulation are used to determine the optimum bracing positions, negating the need for guesswork. 

This analysis led to the development of the FS Series' new scalloped bracing pattern; a new and ideal acoustic structure that maintains the durability of the top board while allowing the FS guitar's sound to shine.

Over 50 Years of Guitar Making

Our FG and FS story began in 1966 with the release of the seminal FG180 and FG150. Over the 50 years since their introduction, we've developed and crafted several generations of FS guitars - all of which have reinforced the FS Series' position as the ideal small-bodied acoustic and electro-acoustic for contemporary players.

Painstaking Craftsmanship

Every aspect of the FS800 has been crafted to create the best guitar possible. From carefully its cured and dried tonewoods to its stunning hand-sprayed finish, the FS800 is made to be a lifelong partner.
