The FG850 Dreadnought is all-mahogany with mahogany body binding which gives it a warm, woody design to match the distinctive richness in the middle frequencies.
Like all of 's newer FG models, it is louder and stronger in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the R&D Division. ’s engineers have achieved this sound by utilizing analysis and simulation to arrive at the best bracing design without depending on tradition or guesswork. This analysis led to the development of a new scalloped bracing pattern that maintains the durability of the top board while bringing out the most sound the FG850 has to offer.
Case sold separately.

First thing I noticed is that there is no case with the guitar. The description says there is a hardshell case from , but it doesn't come with one. As of the date of this review (8/29/16), this still has not been corrected. In fairness, Custom Guitars Friend did send me a cheap generic case when I complained, but only after quite a while on the phone. Secondly, the action is freakishly high. This was corrected with a good setup (cost me an additional 60). It is a very nice looking guitar. I'm not sure if I would recommed this or not. Disappointed in both and Custom Guitar's Friend.
