Yamaha FG 335 and
Yamaha FG 410 EA

The FG335 was the first decent guitar I ever bought. I remember paying £80 for this back in 1979. I also remember paying £40 for a case. I had a simple pickup added to it which sound great provided it went through a graphic equalizer.

Eventually I decided I needed a "proper" electro-acoustic and I bought the FG 410.

Because of the difference in the age of the guitars they sound quite different. The FG 335 has matured into a fully rounded mellow guitar. However, both guitars have retained that wonderful bright Yamaha sound. They are great for recording and I used both of them on all the Shave albums.

I still use the FG 335 for acoustic gigs, especially with Dangerous Circles.
