My mother gave my father's Yamaha FJ-645A to my son today. My father passed away 11 years ago and he bought his a few years before he passed away. I do know that it is at least 12 or 13 years old. It is a Accoustic Guitar, spruce top with Agathis back and sides. I am doing some research on it, and hope to find out more about it. It is a beautiful guitar and has great sentimental value to my son and myself. Have a great week.

Yamaha - FJ-645

I purchased this guitar (FJ-645, not the FJ-645A that everyone is referring to here) when I was a young girl in 1982 or 1983....cannot remember exact date, but I loved this guitar when I purchased it and love it even more now. I would guess the 645A is a little newer than the 645 that I own. At the time I purchased it new for about $350. It was very lightly played, well.... for the past 20 years anyway, and is still in "new" condition. It has a gorgeous deep red finish on the front, ebony colored back and neck with pearl inlays on the neck. It came with a hard case which I've always used and still have. Recently had it restrung with light martin strings and decided to callous my fingers again....sounds better than it ever did :-). I wouldn't part with it. Has an amazing deep sound, but then it is a jumbo/folk style guitar so it should. I was not sure of the wood used to make this guitar and in doing research I came across this site. Glad I did. Thanks for all the info. The following year I purchased a Yamaha FN-595E which is a narrow or "slim" electric acoustic with cutout. It is another gorgeous Yamaha that I would not part with. Not sure of the materials used, but this one also looks as good as the day I purchased it a good 30 years ago and sounds better than ever as well. I've heard some folks say the Yamaha's get to sounding better with age and I believe this to be true. Very nice guitar and you are lucky to own one. :)

I live in Scotland (UK) and also have possession of a YAMAHA fj-645a acoustic. I'm afraid I do not know much about it, except that Yamaha no longer build this model, and I don't think there were any made. I have never been able to find any reviews of this guitar, so if you find any further information I would be greatful if you could infomm me. It's a great guitar with an unusual sound.
