The Yamaha CSF1M features newly designed scalloped bracing, which not only enhances the guitar's overall sound but reinforces the structure. Bracing is important for a guitar's overall structure, as the brace prevents the guitar from collapsing under string tension while also allowing for the top to vibrate more freely. Furthermore, with Yamaha's newly designed scalloped bracing, the CSF1M benefits from a louder, richer, and enhanced acoustic voice.

The pickup faithfully projects the CSF1M's natural acoustic voice clearly, and purely, project every nuance of a player's individual style. With this, the Yamaha CSF1M is ideal for impromptu gigs whilst on the road, as well as being ideal for the busking musician needing a classic sound and a comfortable playing experience.
