The Yamaha A1RII is the ideal acquaintance for any travelling musician, ensuring you are performance-ready wherever you are. The Yamaha A-Series combines modern appointments and the new SRT2 pickup system to give you a sublime electro acoustic model that is ready to play from the moment you take it out of the box.
The A1RII has a slick cutaway design which feels comfortable against the player's body. The body is constructed using a popular partnership of a solid Sitka spruce top with rosewood back and sides. The spruce top contributes to the guitar's generous projection, while it features added reinforcement thanks to a custom designed scalloped bracing pattern. The bracing enhances the acoustic timbre, while the rosewood body adds balance to the overall tone of the guitar.
Yamaha have fitted a smooth, 3-ply African mahogany neck to the A1RII which has a straight taper profile. The neck is topped with a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard which features hand-rolled edges for improved playing comfort. Dot position inlays decorate the fingerboard, acting as your playing guide.
New Pickup System
The A1RII is equipped with new SRT2 pickup technology which offers a refined, consistent acoustic voice. With a simple control interface including a 2-band EQ and auto-feedback reduction, the guitar's natural voice can be accurately translated through your desired amplifier or recording device. 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 scope.
The A1RII features a new battery box which is integrated into the end-pin jack. As a result of its new and innovative design, this means the body only required smaller holes, consequently reducing any acoustic sound loss.
The Yamaha headstock is fitted with die-cast chrome tuners to uphold the tuning integrity of the A1RII with precision. At the lower bout of the body, a rosewood bridge works to improve sustain and intonation of the strings as you play. With a wealth of top quality design features and a solid build, the Yamaha A1RII is an electro-acoustic dream.
