Yamaha A-series

One of the big acoustic guitar stories from the 2011 NAMM was Yamaha’s all-new A-series acoustic electric guitar launch. Following our video demo of an A3M model on the show, we detail here the whole range…

Split into two series – A3 and A1 – the former features solid mahogany or rosewood back and sides with sitka spruce tops, dreadnought and concert body styles with System63 SRT pickups and SRT preamps. The latter features the same body options but with System66 analog preamps and SRT pickups.

Yamaha claims to have created the A-series based on feedback from real gamers. So, as a result, a lower action and thinner neck profile characterize every guitar.

Right now, there are a total of eight A3 and A1 models – scroll down for detailed specs on each and stay tuned for full, in-depth reviews…
