Performing musicians recognise the importance of having an instrument that can withstand plenty of use while out on the road. The new A-series by Yamaha combines top quality tonewoods and hardware to give you a reliable, well-designed acoustic guitar. The A1MII is fitted with a SRT2 pickup system for superb amplification, ensuring the guitar is stage-ready from the moment you take it out of the box.
The A1MII has a traditional Western cutaway shape body which facilitates access to the neck in its entirety. The A1MII features a solid Sitka spruce top which produces a well-balanced timbre with plenty of projection. The body top is further reinforced by custom designed scalloped bracing, allowing the guitar to be even more expressive. The back and sides are constructed from mahogany, bringing warmth to the guitar's natural acoustic voice.
For comfortable transitioning, Yamaha have fitted a 3-ply African mahogany neck to the A1MII which has a straight taper profile. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard with hand-rolled edges for an excellent playing feel in the hand. The fingerboard is decorated with dot position inlays to guide you.
New Pickup System
The Yamaha A1MII is equipped with the new SRT2 pickup technology, giving this guitar a polished, consistent acoustic timbre. The pickup is accompanied by an easy-to-use control interface, featuring a 2-band EQ and auto-feedback reduction, offering total, clear sound control. The System72 onboard electronics also feature a new Piezo / SRT simulation blend control as well as a simulation of two different mic types to broaden your sonic universe.
Yamaha have fitted a new battery box to the A1MII, which is integrated into the end-pin jack. As a result of its innovative design, this means the body only required smaller holes, consequently reducing any sound loss from the guitar.
The headstock is fitted with die-cast chrome tuners to uphold the tuning integrity of the A1MII with precision. A rosewood bridge improves the connection between strings and body, thus enhancing sustain and intonation of the strings as you play. With a wealth of top quality design features and a solid build, the Yamaha A1MII is a joy to play at home or out on the road.
