A guitar with quality materials, outstanding construction, and great value
The FGX730SC acoustic guitar offers great features, including a cutaway body with a Solid Sitka Spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and a rosewood fingerboard in a beautiful hi-gloss natural finish. With FGX730SC you have the option of plugging into a PA or amp with a 1-way piezo/preamp system with a 3-band EQ, adjustable midrange frequency control, and built-in chromatic tuner. Acoustically or plugged in, the FGX730SC sounds fantastic.
A.R.T. technology uses unique multilayer structuring and 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 improved the way the dynamics were controlled on the FJX730SC acoustic electric.
The guitar pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials. This dampens excessive vibration from the top board while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath the top board, it functions as a transducer attached to the guitar body. In addition to two main pickups mounted under the saddle, this system has one each on the bass and treble sides to capture the vibrations of the entire length of the strings and body, as well as the sound's bass and treble components. The Yamaha guitar's pickups are laid out in such a way as to achieve clear reproduction even during high-position soloing.
The A.R.T. preamp system's 1-way 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. The system is also equipped with an onboard tuner. The body's non-scallop, X-type bracing design delivers deep lows full of presence that are unique to the Yamaha sound, and a clear upper end, making a clear and tight response. The Yamaha FJX730SC's head design includes real mother-of-pearl inlay on the headstock and adds a touch of class not found often in this price range.
Yamaha's original L-block neck design offers faster transfer of string vibration to the acoustic electric 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.
