Yamaha has launched two new additions to its A-Series Acoustic-Electric guitar lineup: the A4K and AC4K Solid Koa Acoustic-Electric models. Both guitars are the second in a series of limited edition solid koa A-series guitars. Only 75 copies of each model will be available.

The A4K dreadnought and its concert-size companion, the AC4K, both feature an all-koa top, back and sides. Acoustic analysis technology developed by Yamaha led to the development of these models’ new scalloped bracing pattern for the top panel and a shorter than normal bracing for the rear panel.

The SRT2 pickup system, also developed by Yamaha, was designed for versatile electro-acoustic performance. The mic system also provides studio-quality microphone emulations selected from a handful of vintage studio condenser and ribbon microphones. Guitar tone can be customized by mixing piezo and pickup tones to find the optimal sound for any playing style.

System controls also include volume, treble and bass control knobs; the latter doubles as an auto-feedback reduction button.

The A4K and AC4K will ship in July 2018 and will be available for an MSRP of $2,400.
