OVERVIEW

An all-solid dreadnought with acoustically enhanced tonewood for old school flavor and specially designed electronics for great live sound.

Yamaha's FGX3 Red Label is a dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar features an A.R.E. treated solid Sitka spruce top and scalloped top bracing to help deliver a rich midrange and low-frequency response. Yamaha has paired the FGX3 with a solid mahogany for a boost of warmth, more woody tone and to bolster the midrange. The FGX3 Red Label dreadnought has also been equipped with the new for 2019 Atmosfeel 3-way pickup system which mixes piezo, mic and sheet sensor pickups for a full, natural-sounding plugged-in sound.

In defining the sound of FG Red Label guitars, Yamaha's intention was to offer a warm tone that would be ideal for modern folk music and singer/songwriters. With careful measurement and experimentation, their luthiers made several refinements to the bracing that would enhance low-frequency response without compromising durability. These changes are optimized for the natural characteristics of the tonewoods, and for each body silhouette.

A.R.E. Briefly
Yamaha’s exclusive Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) uses heat, humidity and atmospheric pressure to accelerate the aging of the wood. The A.R.E. process gives the instrument a rich, vintage-quality tone, producing a sound as if you’ve been playing it for years.

Introducing Atmosfeel
The Atmosfeel 3-way pickup and preamp system uses a piezo sensor in the bridge to capture low frequencies, a microphone for low- and midrange, and a proprietary thin synthetic sheet soundboard transducer for high frequencies. The result is a full, natural sound with simple controls that make it easy to get great plugged-in tone.

Atmosfeel's preamp control lets you blend the microphone sound into premixed pickup sound. The microphone sound particularly compliments solo performers and chordal players, while a lower blend may be preferred by fingerstyle players and guitarists who need to cut through a full band. The Bass knob controls a peaking EQ, while the center frequency is turned up when boosting and lowered when attenuating, so that problematic low frequencies never ruin a plugged-in performance.

The FGX3 Red Label dreadnought comes with a hard bag.
