Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

It is a great guitar. I chose it over the taylor 214 and 210e because it was just as good of quality but at a much better price. Comes with a case too. I really think it's a great workhorse guitar that you can use in the studio, stage, practice, etc. Uses two AA batteries instead of the 9 volt, which is a plus. It has an onboard tuner and easy-to-use electronics. Play one! You'll like it. Excellent value for an all-solid guitar.

      Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

      i've been a long time fan of Yamaha acoustic guitars and have had the same Yamaha for nearly twenty years. i've written many songs with it and performed live numerous times with it without incident. i think that your guitar, over time, becomes an extension of you. at 41, i decided to upgrade to a higher end instrument. with the mindset that it could full well be my last acoustic guitar purchase, i did my research. i'm not kidding ya, i read about and played every acoustic i could get my hands on - taylor, guild, martin, seagull (great guitars), fender, gibson (not great guitars) - all the 'greats' for the better part of a year. in the end, and in my opinion, the biggest difference i could find between all of those and the a1r was price and ego. this guitar is every bit as good as any of them without the price tag or the swelled heads. plus, this one comes with an excellent hard shell case. what kind of company would charge a grand for an instrument and send you home with it in a box? madness! i would encourage anyone in the market to at least try the A or L series before spending thousands for a name or country of origin. you're just paying a tax for soil location. these folks have been building guitars for a long, long time and it really shows. Whatever you choose, good luck and enjoy your new guitar!

      Amazing guitar

      Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

      The A1R is a great guitar in every aspect. It's well built, action and neck feel good, looks nice and most importantly it sings like bird! I don't own any high end brands like Martin or Taylor but I do own a Seagull solid wood and Breedlove in the same price range and this Yamaha is still my favorite by a landslide. To be honest, I can't imagine any acoustic guitar in any price range sounding much better. Put some cleartone strings on it and it really sparkles!

        Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

        I am writing this review to try and help if you are thinking about the A1R . When this guitar arrived I was really impressed with the sound and look. I have the sunburst finish, it looks awesome. The rosewood is beautiful as well. Even so, I was borderline obsessed with getting an AC3R or A3R which are the next level up with solid wood back and sides. So I found an A3R and put my A1R up for sale. When the A3R came, I played them together and tried to discern which one was better, both plugged in and not. Honestly, I liked the tone of my A1R best. And being that it has laminated sides and back, it is significantly lighter, which I had taken for granted. The funniest thing is that the rosewood on my A1R looks more real than on the A3R with its gloss finish! All this to say that I am really impressed with Yamaha's A1R. So I was not at all sad to let my A3R go. Full, rich sound, terrific cut on the neck make it fun to play. I learned my lesson, this is a keeper.
