Compromise was never an option with A-Series â€“ on every level, this guitar is built to be the one you want to own. Real wood binding, original wood inlays, a new and distinctive headstock and a scratchplate with a story. The look of A-Series is the definition of elegant â€“ simple, but powerful.
The natural feel of perfectly finished wood. A neck shape that feels like you`ve known it for years. An action that is somehow effortless, yet still rewarding. These are the things that add up when you just know that a guitar feels `right`.
These are the things that make an A-Series feel the way it does.
Extensive research with players, luthiers and techs has given A-Series the feel and playability that today`s acoustic-electric players need and want whether that means switching from electric to acoustic on-stage, recording a session with intricate open tunings or practicing at home.

Each A-Series neck is shaped, refined, finished and checked by experienced craftsmen â€“ people who understand feel and exactly what it means.

Yamaha`s trademark ultra-thin finish and hand-selected tonewoods combine with craftsman-designed construction to create a guitar with incredible resonance and personality. The A-Series doesn`t just have tone, it has life.

Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha have developed SRT â€“ a pickup and preamp system capable of delivering an amazingly natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone. Sounds that were, until now, only attainable by professional recording engineers using expensive vintage microphones in world-class acoustic spaces are now easily recreated by any player, on stage or in the studio. SRT does not artificially create a guitar tone, rather it creates a faithful reproduction of the other elements that make up a great guitar sound â€“ the subtle ambience of the real space between instrument and microphone, the characteristic EQ voicing of a great sounding vintage mic, the different resonances captured when you move a mic around a guitar. And because SRT uses your guitar`s natural tone as a basis for this process, the result is phenomenally realistic and full of the acoustic character of your guitar.
Yamaha`s proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.
