The AC3R features all-solid Rosewood back and sides with hand-selected premium Sitka Spruce top. Yamaha’s original concert-size body style is matched to the flagship System 63 SRT pickup and preamp combination for the most natural, responsive amplified tone available.


Sound : Construction

The A Series construction was designed with one thing in
mind – tone. Deep, rich lows, an open, detailed midrange
and clear, musical highs give your music room to breathe
while underpinning your sound with an unmistakable,
timeless character. Hand-selected tonewoods combine with
intricately-crafted construction to create a guitar with
incredible resonance and personality.


Sound : SRT System (Studio Response Technology)

Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha have developed SRT – a pickup and preamp system capable of delivering an amazingly natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone.
Sounds that were, until now, only attainable by professional recording engineers using expensive vintage microphones in world-class acoustic spaces are now easily recreated by any player, on stage or in the studio.
SRT does not artificially create a guitar tone, rather it creates a faithful reproduction of the other elements that make up a great guitar sound – the subtle ambience of the real space between instrument and microphone, the characteristic EQ voicing of a great sounding vintage mic, the different resonances captured when you move a mic around a guitar.
And because SRT uses your guitar’s natural tone as a basis for this process, the result is phenomenally realistic and full of the acoustic character of your guitar.


Feel : High Comfort Neck Profile

These are the things that add up when you just know that
a guitar feels ‘right’.
These are the things that make an A-Series feel the way

Extensive research with players, luthiers and techs has
given A-Series the feel and playability that today’s
acoustic-electric players need and want whether that
means switching from electric to acoustic on-stage,
recording a session with intricate open tunings or
practicing at home.


Look : Simple but Distinctive

Compromise was never an option with A-Series – on every
level, this guitar is built to be the one you want to
Real wood binding, original wood inlays, a new and
distinctive headstock and a scratchplate with a story.
The look of A-Series is the definition of elegant –
simple, but powerful.
