The Yamaha 2017 AC3M ARE Electro Acoustic Guitar is a cool concert-sized cutaway model that brings together solid tonewoods, cutting edge electronics, and superb hardware appointments in harmonious fashion. The result is an instrument that is perfect for those who are seeking an ideal performance partner both in the studio and on the stage. Whether you're starting out your career or are a seasoned pro, you'll fall in love with the AC3M.

Comfortable concert body

As noted, the AC3M is crafted to the concert body profile, which is compact in depth and size in comparison to a dreadnought. The benefit of this is that the AC3M is often cited as being more comfortable for those with a shorter reach or smaller hands to perform with. The concert body shape is favoured by fingerstyle players, as well as those who like to employ two-hand tapping and percussive guitar playing styles. Thanks to the inclusion of a deep single-cutaway the upper frets are opened to explore with ease. Though the body size may be diminuitive compared to a dreadnought, the AC3M offers a surprisingly generous dynamic range to play with, so you can rest assured that your playing with be heard loud and clear.

Yamaha has equipped the AC3M with solid mahogany back and sides, which gives the concert body a satisfying mid to low-end energy. Paired with the rosewood is a solid Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced with scalloped bracing to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time. The spruce resonates freely and offers up an articulate and bouncy upper frequency range. Thanks to the implementation of solid tonewoods, the guitar will age gracefully to develop a unique timbre that enriches the instrument.

Comfortable three-piece neck

Fitted to the body is an expertly executed three-piece African mahogany neck, which is shaped with a straight taper profile to maximise playing comfort. Married to the neck is a luxurious yet durable ebony fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with decorative position inlays to guide your way in style. The back of the neck has been treated to a matt finish, and combined with the hand-rolled fingerboard the AC3M accommodates smooth transitions across each and every fret.

Professional-level electronics

To guarantee that breadth and depth of the acoustic timbre is translated transparently when played through an amplifier, Yamaha has installed the AC3M with their proprietary Studio Response Technology (SRT) System, along with an SRT Piezo pickup. Manipulating the system comes in the form of Volume/Mic Select, Treble, Bass, SRT-Piezo Blend and AFR controls, giving you everything you need to attenuating and shape your guitar's output to suit your playing environment, playing style, and musical style. This versatile setup makes the AC3M a vital instrument whether at home, in the studio or live onstage.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is home to die-cast tuning machines in chrome, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout your performance. Passing over the urea nut, and feeding down to the ebony bridge and urea saddle partnership, the AC3M is setup to optimise intonation and sustain. You can rest assured that once you tune up, your strings will remain faithful with minimal need for adjustment.

The finish of the body has been complemented by a tortoise pattern pickguard, which aids in protecting the body from unwanted nicks and scrapes. The soundhole is encircled by a rosewood/mahogany/black/white inlay. Completing the high-end finish is a mahogany and cream body binding. To ensure such a beautiful instrument is well protected at home and on the move, Yamaha has supplied each 2017 AC3M ARE Electro Acoustic Guitar with its very own hard bag.
