A Series guitars are designed to be the ideal performance guitar. Featuring a natural, dynamic tone, the A series is crafted to be perfectly suited to life on the road. Yamaha's legendary, road ready construction make this guitar the perfect feature to take you to the next level.
A Series take it to the next level. There are 2 different body shapes, the traditional western body cutaway which produces powerful lows and clear highs with full body resonance, and the concert body which produces articulate mids and highs, defined lows and exceptional comfort.
You have the choice of rosewood or mahogany back and sides. Rosewood models offer well-balanced tone from low to high, while mahogany provides a rich mid-range with quick response.
A new sound has been developed for the A-series that is louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis. The analysis led to the development of new scalloped bracing for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the backboard.
Extensive research with players and guitar techs has given A-Series guitars the feel and playability that all acoustic-electric players want. These guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.
