OVERVIEW

Ready-to-perform electronics, all-solid tonewoods and an easy-to-maneuver-around body.

Yamaha's A-Series A5R Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar features all-solid rosewood back and sides married with a hand-selected Sitka spruce top that has been enhanced by Yamaha's original A.R.E. wood-torrefaction technology. Natural, dynamic plugged-in tone from the SRT2 pickup system perfectly suit your performance on the stage and the made-in-Japan premium build quality will gratify advanced players' desire.

Hardshell case included.

A.R.E.
Yamaha's A-Series guitars are louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division.
Their analysis led to the development of a new scalloped bracing for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the back board. Also, treating the top board with Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone, making it sound as though you'd been playing it for year from the very first moment you pick an A-Series guitar up.

Comfortable Neck Profile
Extensive research with players, luthiers and guitar techs has given A-Series the feel and playability that today’s acoustic-electric players want, whether switching from electric to acoustic on stage, recording a session with intricate open tunings, or practicing at home.These superb guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing, and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.

Elixir Strings
A-Series guitars are equipped with Elixir NANOWEB 80/20 Bronze Light strings to deliver a lively tone together with extended tone life that players have come to expect from Elixir Strings.

Electronics
From cut-through piezo sound to warm, pure acoustic sound, which is recorded with vintage microphones in the professional studio, SRT2 allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage. With SRT2 you can mix these two sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve a distinctive tone. What's more, you can select two different mic types to choose the optimal sound for your playing style and for the song you are performing.
