State-of-the-art electronics paired with a solid build and performance-friendly design.
The Yamaha A-Series A1M dreadnought cutaway acoustic-electric guitar brings you exceptional build quality and amplified versatility. Designed for today's guitarist, the A1M dreadnought guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides that produce a balanced, natural acoustic tone. Its slim mahogany neck provides comfort and playability through long practice sessions and gigs. With its cutaway body and 20 frets, you can easily access those high notes. And the built-in SRT pickup system lets you plug into an amp or PA system for amplified performances. This durable workhorse also includes a gig bag for safe transport between venues. Order the Yamaha A1M acoustic-electric today.
Natural and Balanced Acoustic Tones
The A1M dreadnought guitar gets its clear, balanced acoustic voice from quality tonewoods. Its solid Sitka spruce top resonates brightly with crisp articulation. Mahogany back and sides add warmth and depth to the mix. Together, these tonewoods produce a versatile acoustic voice that works well for all styles of music. Whether you're fingerpicking or strumming, the A1M projects a natural acoustic tone. On stage, its mahogany and spruce tonewoods give you the volume you need to be heard alongside other acoustic instruments and vocals. In the studio, the A1M's acoustic resonance shines through both amps and monitors.
Slim and Comfortable Mahogany Neck for Effortless Playing
The A1M acoustic-electric guitar's slim mahogany neck provides a comfortable feel that makes playing a breeze. Its smooth satin finish lets your fingers glide up and down the neck with ease. Tuning stability is excellent thanks to the mahogany neck's strength and rigidity. The slim profile neck reduces hand fatigue, allowing you to play for hours on end without discomfort. Whether you're practicing at home or performing live, the A1M's slim and comfortable neck makes playing effortless.
Cutaway Body With 20 Frets for Easy Access to Higher Notes
The A1M dreadnought's single-cutaway body shape provides easy access to the higher register. Unlike a traditional dreadnought, the A1M lets you solo beyond the 15th fret. Its 20-fret rosewood fingerboard gives you a full four octaves of range to work with. Play those high licks with comfort and confidence, without hand contortions. The cutaway is stylish as well as functional, giving the A1M a modern and sleek look. Unleash your creativity with the A1M's extended upper fret access.
Onboard SRT Pickup System for Amplified Performances
Plug the A1M acoustic-electric guitar into an amp or PA system for amplified gigs and recordings. It features Yamaha's SRT pickup system that accurately reproduces the A1M's natural acoustic tone through an amplifier. Simple controls let you adjust the volume and shape your amplified tone. The easy-to-use onboard preamp has a built-in tuner so you can tune up right on stage. Thanks to its versatile electronics, the A1M transitions seamlessly from acoustic practice sessions to amplified live performances. Project your music with the A1M's SRT pickup system.
