Yamaha AC3R | Electro Acoustic Guitar | Natural
What We Think
The AC3R Acoustic guitar from Yamaha is a part of their new A-series range, and is packed full of new features. The main selling point of this guitar is the use of a microphone inside the body, paired with the piezo-style pickup often found in electro-acoustics. Having the microphone helps give the guitar a rich and raw sound, as it picks up the sound produced in the body, rather than just the sound of the strings on the bridge. You can blend between the microphone and the pickup, so you can get the perfect sound for you. This is a super versatile guitar that sounds as authentic amplified as it does acoustically.
The A-Series is built to perform. Whether that means live or in the studio, unplugged or amplified, these guitars were built to deliver the tone and playability you`ve been searching for. Thousands of hours of development, prototyping, evaluations and field-testing combined with more than 50 years experience in crafting guitars has produced the A-Series, a guitar that gives you technology where you need it and tradition where you want it. Experience a new Yamaha. Experience A-Series.
Compromise was never an option with A-Series 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 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.

Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha have developed SRT euro;“ 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 euro;“ 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.
