In the tone department I found it to be exceptionally bright for a Hog top. If your hoping for a tone comparable to say, a 15 series Martin, I would steer clear. An Ibanez AC240 will give you that while I found the Yamaha to sound very "Taylor-esque" but even brighter.
Actually that brightness appeals to me much more than the 'typical' mahogany tone which I find dull and muted. I'll have to try one; the small body FS850 in particular.
