The Yamaha 2017 AC5M ARE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Natural offers the perfect choice for singer songwriters, solo performers and ensemble players who want supremely comfortable model that boasts an exceptional pedigree. Built using solid tonewoods throughout, equipped with Yamaha's proprietary System 71 (SRT 2S) System, and fitted with hardworking hardware, the AC5M is a professional grade model that is built to remain a faithful companion for your playing career.

Versatile concert body

The AC5M is crafted to the concert body shape, which delivers a bright and sparkling balanced timbre. Bearing a more compact profile than that of a dreadnought, the concert is often favoured by players who prefer the freedom of movement afforded by the smaller size. However, the concert body shape still delivers a powerful output, and is perfect for fingerstyle players thanks to its agile dynamic range. Thanks to the cutaway the upper frets can be reached with the greatest of ease.

Yamaha has equipped the AC5M with solid mahogany back and sides, which combines with the concert body shape to establish firm lower midrange energy. Paired with the mahogany is a solid Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced with scalloped bracing to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time. The spruce resonates heartily, and projects the timbre generated within the body with a fantastic energy. Whether you're subtly fingerpicking single notes or emphatically strumming open chords, you can rest assured that each and every note will be represented exquisitely. The benefit of solid tonewoods throughout is that the more the guitar is played, the more mature the character that is developed over time.

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 AC5M 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 AC5M 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 AC5M a vital instrument whether at home, in the studio or live onstage.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is home to Gotoh's open gear tuning machines in chrome, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout your performance. Passing over the Tusq nut, and feeding down to the ebony bridge and Tusq saddle partnership, the AC5M 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 vintage natural 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 AC5M ARE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Natural with its very own hardshell case.
