The Yamaha A1R is a fantastic dreadnought cutaway electro acoustic guitar that provides incredible power, rich tonal complexity and excellent reliability. The A1R includes Yamaha's SRT (Studio Response Technology) electronics, giving you studio-ready tones when you plug in and play live.
The dreadnought body shape provides a resilient and robust level of power, making it an excellent choice for those who're looking for a dynamic model. The back and sides are built using rosewood, a tonewood that is filled with complexity and an emphasis on mid to low-end power. The top is crafted from solid spruce, which is a highly resonant tonewood that projects the power generated in the body with the greatest of ease. Spruce offers a sparkling articulation in the higher frequency range, which cuts through the power of the mahogany sweetly to preventing the output from becoming muddied. This makes the A1R a fantastic model for singer-songwriters who require power with articulation.
The Yamaha A1R electro acoustic is fitted with a solid mahogany neck. The sturdy nature of the neck allows it to resist twisting and warping over time. Married to the mahogany is a delightful rosewood fingerboard, which provides a luxurious touch as you glide along the 20-fret playing surface. The cutaway allows you greater access to the upper frets, so you have total freedom as you play.
The Yamaha's System 66 SRT electronics offer a DSP-driven acoustic modelling interface that analyses the sound of each individual string to accurately represent the A1R's tone when playing through an amplifier. All the subtle nuances of the body shape, tonewoods and your playing technique are faithfully projected with honesty.
For performers who’re looking for a touring partner that is ready to hit the stage or the studio at the drop of a hat, plays like a dream and has a delightful timbre, the Yamaha A1R dreadnought cutaway electro acoustic is the perfect choice.
