Yamaha proudly introduce the new A-Series of acoustic models which are designed for performance. Ideal for travelling and performing musicians, the AC1MII electro acoustic fuses top quality craftsmanship with superior materials and hardware for a versatile playing experience. Including new and innovative onboard electronics and custom design features, the AC1MII is an excellent choice for the keen guitarist.
Yamaha have shaped the AC1MII to the comfortable Concert cutaway body frame. The concert guitar is compact and has an effortless playing feel, which is further improved by the body cutaway in allowing you full access to all the frets. The top is made from solid Sitka spruce and is strengthened by custom designed scalloped bracing for even better projection. The back and sides are constructed from mahogany, adding warmth to the range of tones already on offer.
Yamaha have firmly joined a smooth 3-ply African mahogany neck to the AC1MII with a comfortable straight taper profile. Topping the neck is a rosewood fingerboard with hand-rolled edges for an upgraded playing feel in the hand. The frets feature dot inlays acting as a convenient guide to each transition.
For the A-Series of acoustic models, Yamaha have employed the new SRT2 pickup technology to amplify the AC1MII. The excellent, consistent tone of the guitar is accurately translated thanks to the onboard electronics. The controls are simple, including a 2-band EQ and auto-feedback reduction which ensure you retain full control while simultaneously reducing any unwanted noise. The System72 preamp also features a new Piezo / SRT simulation blend control as well as a simulation of two different mic types to enhance the guitar's voice.
A new hardware feature of the AC1MII is the battery box which is integrated into the end-pin jack. Due to the smaller holes needed for the battery box, this ensures minimal sound loss.
Reliable die-cast chrome tuners are fitted to the headstock to uphold tuning integrity with precision. A rosewood bridge improves sustain and intonation, while maintaining a strong connection between strings and body. Yamaha have succeeded in delivering another outstanding quality electro acoustic model from the A-Series.
