The Yamaha AC5R ARE is a traditional Western body, cutaway electro acoustic. With a Sitka Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides, it offers a crisp and cutting natural tone. It is beautifully balanced and articulate, perfect for fingerstyle and bold chord strumming.
Benefiting from Yamahas A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) wood reforming technology, its super stable and vintage voiced. Through precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition, similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years.
The African Mahogany neck features an Ebony fingerboard, its comfortable and really nicely balanced and thanks to the low playing action, its great for beginners and more experienced players alike.
With a built in SRT2 pickup and preamp system this guitar is always ready to hit the stage. With unreal clarity and note definition, this system is a real plus point for the Yamaha AC range.
Crafted in Japan and complete with Yamaha hardcase, this guitar punches well above its modest price point.
