OVERVIEW

Built-in reverb and chorus with no need to plug in to anything for full room sound wherever.

Playing guitar in a great sounding room is one of the most inspiring and engaging playing experiences imaginable – far more enjoyable than in a dry-sounding room like a lounge, office, den, or bedroom. Yamaha’s FS-TA TransAcoustic Concert acoustic-electric guitar intuitively recreates the incredible experience of playing in a rich, live room without needing any external amplification or effects. All you need is the guitar itself.

Whether you’re practicing, writing, recording or just playing for fun, the Yamaha FS-TA TransAcoustic Concert will inspire your creativity with built-in Hall or Room Reverb and Chorus you can mix and adjust for just the right sound you're looking for. 

If you don't warn your listeners, they'll swear you've got some wireless doodad hidden somewhere or an amp up your sleeve, but it's actually Yamaha's innovative actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrating in response to the vibrations of the strings. These vibrations are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and out into the air in and around the guitar body, giving you authentic reverb and chorus effects from inside the body. 

The FS-TA TransAcoustic's controls are conveniently located where a normal preamp is found and it's three simple knobs make it easy to adjust how much of an effect you add to the TransAcoustic's naturally bright tone. The three controls include Chorus, Reverb Control (Room/Hall), TA Switch/Line Out Volume Control. Yep, that's right, if you really want to plug in for a clean recording, the FS-TA offers you that as well. 

Body Design

The body of Yamaha's FS-TA is all-mahogany based on the Yamaha's L-series with a modified non-scalloped bracing design that retains the L-series' characteristic bright tone while enhancing the low end. The Sitka spruce top is treated with Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. process so you get an instrument full of rich, quality, broken-in tone as if it's been your go-to guitar for years. 

The FS-TA also features a straighter neck taper with hand-rolled fingerboard edges to give you hours and hours of comfortable, stress-free playing experience. The 5-ply neck design featured in all TransAcoustic guitars is constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies with a double-action adjustable rod, creating a strong, stable neck that resists warping.

Once you’ve experienced the FS-TA, you’ll never want to play another acoustic guitar again.
