Build

As far as build goes, the FG720S features a combination of several woods – spruce (Sitka, to be exact), eastern mahogany, and rosewood, which complement each other nicely.

As noted, the top is solid Sitka spruce, which is quite stiff along, as well as across the grain, and relatively lightweight. These two characteristics combined give Sitka the ability to transfer sound at high velocity, making it a popular choice for topwoods.

The top is supported by a non-scalloped quarter-sawn X-bracing and complemented with mahogany sides and back to warm and mellow the bright and clear sound of Sitka.

The nato neck and rosewood fingerboard and bridge make a great combo, with neck being backed (pun not intended) by an adjustable truss rod. The bridge and fretboard are left natural, without lacquer finish.

The SG720S sports a classic dreadnought body, and comes with a tortoise pickguard.Any beginner will be happy with this puppy, as well as many an experienced player on a budget looking to add to his or her collection.
