A SERIES THE NEXT LEVEL

Designed to be the ideal performance acoustic guitar, the Yamaha A series is crafted from the ground up to be perfectly suited to life on the road. With natural, dynamic plugged-in tone and stage-ready simplicity from the new SRT2 pickup system; played-in comfort out of the box thanks to hand-rolled fingerboard edges on a straight taper neck; a custom designed scalloped bracing pattern for an all-new powerful, expressive acoustic tone and Yamaha’s legendary road-ready construction to make sure it’s ready when you are, night after night, the A series is the perfect guitar to take your playing to the next level.

High Comfort Neck Profile

Extensive research with players, luthiers and guitar techs has given A series the feel and playability that today’s acoustic-electric players want, whether switching from electric to acoustic on-stage, recording a session with intricate open tunings, or practicing at home. These superb guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing, and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.

Studio Response Technology 2 Electronics

SRT2 is a new pickup system developed independently by Yamaha, and optimized for stage performance. From a piezo sound that cut through when in a mix to a warm, pure acoustic sound that is like recorded by using the vintage microphone in the recording studio, SRT2 allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage. With SRT2 you can mix these two sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve a distinctive tone.

What’s more, the ability to select from two different mic types lets you choose the optimal sound for your playing style and for the song you are performing.
