The FG180 was Yamaha’s first folk guitar, dating back 50 years to 1966. This model has been developed based on the specs from that year, recreating a modern version by applying Yamaha’s latest technological expertise. More than a mere reissue, the FG180-50TH is a refined model that Yamaha is proud to introduce.

A.R.E. treatment

By treating the top board with Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. process, which gives the instrument a rich and vintage quality tone, we aimed to reproduce the rich sound of an FG180 that has been played for many years.

Newly Developed Scalloped Bracing

A variety of tests and R&D results from acoustic characteristic simulations led to a new scalloped shape for the bracing that has produced a new level of richness from mid to low and provided an added boost in volume.

Inner Label

Due to the strong response from fans even today, we used our signature “red label” inside the guitar. This label includes a piano image that was only seen on the labels of the very earliest models, together with "Nippon Gakki," Yamaha's former company name, in place of "Yamaha Corporation."

Truss Rod Cover & Traditional Logo

We used a wide Yamaha logo - the same as the one for the early FG - and the words “50TH ANNIVERSARY” appear on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.

Original Pickguard & All Solid Body

The shape and thickness of the pickguard follow those of the original. The body is a solid wood construction so players can enjoy the evolving sound that develops as the instrument is played over time.
