Yamaha A1R Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Vintage Natural

  • $679.99

Solid-top Acoustic-electric with Vintage Vibe and a Big Voice

In the Yamaha A1R Dreadnought, Yamaha offers a vintage look, excellent volume in the low-mid ranges, and great playability. With a solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides, this guitar sounds fantastic. The Yamaha A1R Dreadnought takes full advantage of Yamaha's acclaimed SRT pickup for recording and stage performance. With its traditional System 66 preamp, you get volume, a built-in tuner, a 3-band EQ, and automatic midrange frequency control with a convenient slider. 

Modern audio engineering with vintage style

The Yamaha A1R Dreadnought has a traditional western body cutaway, allowing its lows and highs to resonate fully and project well through its circular soundhole. The western cutaway gives it a classic look, and because it offers better access to the upper frets, soloing is easier, as you can reach higher treble notes more comfortably. Irvine Art & Music Center fingerstyle players love that! 

Quality tonewoods plus classic design equal outstanding sound

Sitka spruce is highly valued for guitar tops — and for good reason. This select grade of stiff but elastic softwood is equally suited to aggressive strumming, flatpicking, and even fingerpicking styles of play. The Yamaha A1R Dreadnought features a solid Sitka top with rosewood back and sides, producing warm, balanced tones from low to high end. This guitar looks, sounds, and plays great.

Studio sound onstage

Normally you can best hear a guitar's subtle nuances when it's miked in the studio, but the Yamaha A1M Dreadnought has Yamaha's SRT pickup, which brings those wonderful acoustic sounds to the stage. Further customization is provided through the AMF midrange frequency adjustment on the preamp control panel.
